Planta - California Dream Orange.
I bought this out of curiosity more than actually wanting some. After the first few puffs I'm glad I let curiosity get the better of me! I wasn't exactly intrigued by the idea of orange in tobacco. I thought it would be to harsh a flavour. I was WRONG! The smell from the bag is invigorating, really fresh and lively.
Once lit the topping isn't like I had assumed it would be. It is clearly orange but not harsh or overly acidic. I think again the word 'fresh' is very apt! Although the topping is of a decent weight it still allows the tobacco tastes to come through. A great hay note from the Virginia with a calm and laid back touch from the Black Cavendish. The nicotine is mild in this one. It necessitates a large inhalation for recognition. That doesn't bother me much though as I don't smoke my pipe for N. The room note is quite orange like, not heavy but still easy to notice. The final good point is bite. I get none!
This has surprised me as I expected not to like it but after a few bowls I find it suits me well! This would be the perfect smoke on a hot summers day, four stars.
