Italian Blend pipe tobacco with espresso flavour.
The image of the tobacco Italian Blend is rather dark, with medium to dark brown ingredients, mixed with only a few light brown sprinklings. The tobaccos are quite wide cut, which promises a not too quick burningtime. When opening the round tin adorned the content looks prettymoist, but this quickly adopt. The scent is striking and penetrating, sweet and smoky with a creamy coffee flavor, reminiscent of sweets with coffee aroma.
The Italian Blend is like any loose mixture plugged down loose and becoming more tight to the top of the tobacco-chamber. However, you should let some space, because the tobacco when lighting something comes up and burning crumbs could fall off the edge.
The Italian Blend is easy to ignite, despite its apparent moisture. A match is enough to produce a uniform glow. Only the surface can be smoothed with the tamper something. Eventually relight and the tobacco burns until the end.
The Italian Blend surprises immediately after lighting with a dense, very creamy and mild smoke. It is thought to smoke milk foam, which fits well with the coffee aroma. This is not as intense as sweet as the smell could be suspect and it is also not comparable to drinking an espresso. Rather, it is reminiscent of the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans that fills a room - tasting for roasted aromas, fine oily and a little sour, like a good espresso, just aromatic and supporting the natural tobacco taste not overlapping. The generous width of cut ensures a slow burning, until in the last third the aroma fades and medium brown ash and for a flavored tobacco little condensate remains.
The room note of Italian Blend is typically for pipetobacco sweet and is in a society that tolerates smoking hardly noticeable as disturbing.
The Italian Blend is a medium to dark brown mixture whose penetrating fragrance of sweet espresso could almost replace the morning cup of coffee. The easy handling and the moderate strength actually make it suitable for the morning (and for beginners). But even after a meal or in the afternoon it harmonizes while actually having a cup of espresso with its delicate never intrusive coffee flavor and the not overwhelmed tobaccos behind it. Of course you can also just enjoy it in in-between times, because it is always interesting ...
