Very Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

I am really disappointed about this oriental tobacco. It has a sweet smell, of candy, and it is clear that this oriental tobacco is flavored with chemical and maybe natural substances (but I don’t think so). In my personal opinion the flavoring is with chemical essences. The taste is very mild, but persistent and lightly cloy. It is a blending tobacco (with Virginia, Burley, Latakia, Perique) but the sweet candy taste is often overcoming and this is not typical for an oriental tobacco. I am sure there is something better on the market. Anyway I bought it in Switzerland at Tabaccheria Dubini in Lugano, but it is possible to order it online (www. The owner, Mrs Monica Dubini, is very willing and she is very kind and pleasant. Her tobacco store is well-furnished and you can find a wide range of tobaccos. In my personal rating (from 1 to 10) my score is 3 and only a stars

This is a strange Oriental tobacco: it is unusually sweet (for somebody this may be a merit - for me, not so much). I preferred to smoke it straight, beacause in the mixtures I usually blend unflavored tobaccos (or that seem so). It is a dry and well burning tobacco (it is poor of nicotine, so it is an 'every-moment' tobacco).

Pipe Used: Many briars and corn cob and ceramic

Age When Smoked: new
