A rich mix of Virginias and burley tobacco with a slight aromatic nature that is tasty and strong in nicotine.

Strong None Detected Full Pleasant to Tolerable

I was told that this blend is made up of Oriental and Virginia. Not sure if Van Eerkoms (South African tobacco distributors) changed its blend.

Anyway, its a strong tobacco and had some tongue bite. Unflavoured and difficult to review because its just plain old TOBACCO. No frills, no fuss, no sweet, no distinct flavour or taste. If you like pure tobacco, like it might have been in the old days, this is the blend to go for!

No, I've changed my opinion on this second try....its not even worth "pure tobacco", "old days" attributes. For me at least, its just tasteless, and way too much tongue bity.

Medium to Strong Mild Full Tolerable

Would actually recommend this blend. It tastes like i imagine pipe tobacco tasted many many moons ago. It is full in taste and it really keeps your attention. I would say that it is a very deep, rich blend that has many layers. The topping really enhances the tobacco. Not bad and actually one of my favourite South African blends

I find it very difficult to accurately describe the taste other than to say that it is very rich, deep and intersting
