Mild to Medium Medium Medium Very Pleasant

It´s an burley based OTC aromatic flavored Caramel, the cheapest tobacco available in Argentina. It comes very dry in the pouch, the plastic pouch it´s not sealed, so you should rehydrate it before smoking. The cut is very fine ribbon, brown looking tobacco, very easy to pack and to lit. Pouch aroma is very nice, first in the front is the caramel topping smell and then some chocolate and nuts notes from the burley. Once is lit, it produces big amount of smoke, with de caramel flavor coming in the front and some vanilla nuances. The as you go down the bowl you can detect some chocolate and nuts flavors from the burley, and also some hay with some cigarretish quality. Burns well through the entire bowl leaving some light grey ash behind, it can burn hot if you push it, but no tongue bite detected. Could be an all-day smoke. A typical OTC burley based aromatic blend. Recommended for those who like old codger aromatic blends.

Pipe Used: Diplomat Corn Cob, Legend, several briar pipes

Age When Smoked: 1 year

Purchased From: Local Tobacconist

Similar Blends: Carter Hall, several burley aromatic OTC blends.

Exeter is THE Argentinian drugstore burley, and it's comparable to its American counterparts, tongue bite and plastic taste included. In my list, it ranks next to Carter Hall (they're very similar), above Half & Half and Granger and below Prince Albert and Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic. At $1.30/50g, it's the cheapest smokable Argentinian tobacco, and I always carry a pouch in the glove compartment for emergencies (which happily never occurred so far) as I don't think that uncontrolled "stoving" could make it any worse.

If you live in Argentina, S.N. Original is a little more expensive a lot better.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Perhaps the most widely available tobacco in Argentina. Also the least expensive. If you smoke properly you get a decent smoke comparable to what you would expect from other American style OTCs.

Mixture: Exeter Container: Cheap ass unsealed plastic pouch. Appearance: ribbon cut, yellow and brown tones. Somewhat on the dry side. Aroma: honey mostly, some vanilla and caramel. Packing and lighting: really easy to pack and light. This is newbie proof stuff, You can't do wrong with this one. Smoking: smoked fast and will burn hot, won't bite. Consistent smoke down the bowl. Mostly sweet honeyish and light burley flavors. Great roomnote After smoking: grey ash, little moisture on the bowl.

Not the best, not the worst. Can be an inexpensive all day smoke.

Pipe Used: Crisol various

Age When Smoked: Fresh only

Argentina has very good and quality/price consistant tobaccos, this is just cheap. Where to start, the tongue bite, the bad burning , the dryness from the pouch..its just BAD. And not worth it at all, because for an extra buck you can get realy good Argentines mixtures at super afordable prices. Avoid it like the plague

Similar to brazilian counterpart Finamore Irlandez, it is average pipe tobacco I once gave a try in one of my trips to Buenos Aires. Nothing special here, very cheap but not nasty.

I smoke again after almost 15 years, the same tobacco blend, 100% Argentina Burleys, fast burning but don't bite of you smoke slow. Now is made by BAT before the blender was Nobleza y Picardo. Its a very cheap tobacco, a little vainilla and caramel taste. You can get a decent smoke of you go slow. Not the better Argentinan Tobacco but not the worst. Good room note. The pack is the worst, cheap platic bag without vaccum seal. Came almost dry. If you want a better smoke, rehidrate.

Pipe Used: If you don't have nothing more to smoke.
