I wrote similar review about Poniatowski Full Aroma and, because Poniatowski Red Aroma is very simmiliar, ended almost copying it.
As most of begginers I started with cheap tabacco, hoping that I could try smoking pipe and save some money. But it was after some time I realised that it was mistake.
Nearly cost me abonding pipe smoking, as leaving poor taste in mouth, coal stench in room and giving me headache. But I persisted and tried some better tabacco from friend of mine. And then I realised that poor quality is not fault of lack of skill or pipe smoking generally. It was Poniatowskis' fault.
This tabacco have pleasant smell while in pouch, but that's all. It burns poorly (too moist, and after some drying, too dry), although still better then Full Aroma, leaves bad room note, tastes badly and gives me headache. Fruity flavoring is almost impossible to taste. So called in, in my country, "kapeć" (bad taste, literally "slipper") stays till next day. I don't know if it is achievable in other countries, but if anyone stumbles upon it, leave it where it lies. Buy anything else.
P.S. Excuse me for grammar mistakes - as You can probably see I'm not english native-speaker.
Well, this is supposedly an aromatic, but a very light one at that. The list of flavouring is pretty impressive considering that none of them can actually be distinctly tasted in the smoke which is clearly on the light side, with virginia being the main driver and the burley just a sidekick. The strongest side-note that I could detect in this was actually a malt grain/dried hay-like combination of... Almost like pilsner beer?
I would actually classify this as a very lightly flavoured virginia blend. Not a first choice among many but definitely good value for money at least, will probably be buying again when next in Poland.
My brother gifted me this tobacco as a present from Krakow. It burns very quickly and hot...the taste is very pungent at first and flat on the long run, nothing noticeable at all. Never going to buy more or to recommend it to friends.
A friend got this for me when he went back home for a visit to Warsaw. Very mild smoke. Not a lot of aromatic taste or smell. Just a straight forward otc blend. Not that bad. It's just when you been smoking top grade tobacco hard to go back to a mild otc. Still rates two stars.
