Friedman & Pease Oasis

Fine Oriental tobaccos are blended with Golden and Red Virginia ribbon, and enhanced with rich, smoky Cyprian Latakia. Oasis is delicate and fresh; subtle, yet complex. It's oriental character comes through without being brash, while the Virginias provide substance and structure. Delightful in the morning, or as a perfect respite from the concerns of the day, Oasis is for those seeking a more delicate Oriental blend. Welcome to the Oasis!

Tin Aroma: pleasantly pungent, with a bit of spice to it, of the turkish, not perique variety. The Latakia is in there, I think, but very faint, at least in smell.

Physical Characteristics: mostly light colored virginia pieces, with some brown that is probably turkish and latakia. A pleasant gradient from the very light colored virginias to the dark latakia. A short ribbon cut, which makes packing easy.

Notes: The initial light was so nutty tasting, I wondered whether there might be some burley in this blend! The nutty flavor settles down quickly though, and the latakia meekly peaks it's head above ground to see what is going on. This is a much milder blend than the tin led me to believe, but in no way is it weak, it is more understated than underpowered. This blend is a suprise in many ways; it is rich and creamy where it could have been thick and acrid, it is mild and pleasant where it could have been overly smoky and overpowering, it is cool and dry where it could have been hot hot hot. A wonderful smoke any time of the day, but I prefer the gentleness of this early in the morning, when it can be smoked outside with a cup of hot tea of coffee.
