Notes: Contains Virginia, burley and Oriental grades, but that is not the secret of the good taste. The secret of a good product is the usage of the best quality tobaccos from each type. Our tobacco blenders have more than 30 years experience in that area and they do create the blends on the old style of blending.

Natural tobacco. This blend is a national popular mixture. Virginia, Burley and Oriental with no casing and no topping. Really cheap. The chocolate smell derives from Burley. Opening the pouch the tobacco is very dry and if you want a good smoke you have to hydrate it. Nothing special, this mixture is for natural tobacco lovers. No complexity. Simple but honest. In my personal system rating (from 1 to 10) my score is 7 and two stars.

Surprisingly good tobacco. Cheap, but still solid and good quality. Natural in taste, sweet, with slightly nutty and maybe chocolate notes. Pairs very well with aromatic tobaccos, adds flavor and body to them. Very pleasant, quite recommended tobacco for everyday use. Quality much higher than the price suggests.

I've bought a 70g tin some years ago, this tobacco was one of the cheapest in the market, and that's not a bad thing. If you like something soft and resembling naturals, it's good, really easy to smoke and pleasant. Not a "wow!" tobacco, but quite recommended.

Scent: just a bit sweet, but good.

Taste: natural, light and soft... No biting.

Room note: quite pleasant (unespectedly near to aromatics... but different).

Burning: It lights immediately, burns easy, just a bit too fast.

Best briars: nearly all, but, maybe, is better you don't use your latakia tobaccoes dedicated pipes.

Pipe Used: many, 70g is a two weeks stuff...

Age When Smoked: Some weeks

Purchased From: Noli, Milano, Italy
