Motzek Herbst 84

THE mellow, English classic in our sortiment. Best Virginia varietals, finest Oriental and carefully selected latakias give the experienced smoker a smile on his face. Cool burn, always present but never overwhelming spice. The perfect latakia pleasure for All-Day. Due to its smoothness this blend is also for the beginner.

This tobacco is an Oriental forward English House Blend by the old Motzek, It's now made by Thomas Darasz who took over the shop.

The tobacco is quite sweetish, strong oriental notes and just a hint of Latakia in the background.

To me this is a clone of Samuel Gawith Sqandron Leader. Positive: it's an inexpensive tobacco. Negativ: it seems to me like the blend does not blend. Something does not fit together smoothly, esp. if you are used to Dunhill Standard Mixture, Durbar, London Mixture and the Squadron Leader. It lacks depth, it lacks something to keep you interested, it lacks the overall picture, and it lacks the roundness and creaminess you would expect from such a blend.

It's not a bad tobacco, but it's not great either. It's a cheap house blend that works quite well, no less, no more. For me, who smokes maybe a pipe in the evening, it's not good enough. I don't bother spending more money on much more enjoyment.

Motzek Herbst 84

This review is based off a one bowl sample. The tobacco feels dry. It consists of mostly light and dark brown ribbons. It has a sweet smell to it.

When smoking, I get a strong amount of burning wood, herbs that are sour, spicy and sweet. There is also an ever present smokiness throughout the bowl.

It burned cool, even with quick puffing. It is a full bodied blend, with a light amount of nicotine.

I recommend this to all who enjoy English/Oriental blends.
