Spicy Latakia and small leafed Orient with distinctive Flavour. As coronation precious Perique for a high geared unique bouquet.
A beautiful, dark brown, nearly black mixture with a few brighter streaks. Different long and wide cut, but a rather fine tobacco, which feels pretty mellow, but not dewily. Opening the tin you’ll notice the strong and spicy smell with a dominating part of Latakia – the strength of this tobacco could be guessed by the smell yet.
The Nightcap is easy to plug, just as a rather fine cut mixture. Portion for portion filled into the pipe and every layer lightly compressed until the pipe is filled. It’s recommended to use smaller to medium pipes.
This tobacco is easy to light up. It tends not very much to swell and one to two flames are enough to get a constant glow. Normally it isn’t necessary to light up again.
With lighting up you’ll notice both English character and strength immediately. An exquisite luscious-spicy taste of tobacco, where Latakia crowns the taste. No flavour affects the taste, if anything the nuances will combine to this overall impression. But the strength should be kept in mind – this mixture isn’t dedicated for an empty stomach or the early morning! Therefore the recommendation of smaller pipes... Because the tobacco glows rather slow, you’ll nevertheless get a long smoking pleasure, until the pipe dies down slowly and a powder of middle grey, dry ash will remain.
The redolence is equal to the taste: Strong, English, Latakia – thus no tobacco for all societies! Attended persons should like the redolence of this kind of mixtures... But who’s sniffing exactly, will recognise the high quality of the used tobaccos, because in the redolence the spicy tobaccos complete with Latakia very well, too.
An exquisite English mixture with a good portion, but not too much, Latakia. Due to the strength nothing for an empty stomach and high volume pipes should be avoided too, if you don’t want to be fuddled by the Nightcap. Carefully smoked the tobacco is a great pleasure for enthusiasts of English mixtures. In spite of the strength a tongue-friendly, tasty tobacco. Beginners in the world of English mixtures shouldn’t avoid this tobacco! Thoughtful enjoyed it is an ideal example to clear some prejudices against Latakia.
