Before the Classic One can finally emit its fine aroma in your Bentley and please your discerning palate, it´s been on a long trip. Virginia and Orient tobaccos are optimally seasoned right after they arrive in Germany. They are harmonically blended and put in old English flake squeezers where they can mature and develop their special quality. Until it´s time to pack and seal it so that The Classic One Ready Rubbed can retain its full aroma. It´s got a soft taste and ensures a cool and even burn. A wonderful product for the discerning tobacco connoisseur.
The Classic One is a ready rubbed flake of medium brown tobaccos. It smells of ripe Virginia tobacco, slightly sweet, and slightly spicy Oriental. The cutting width is medium, the length varies greatly by the flake. The Classic One is optimally conditioned.
The Classic One could be stuffed in portions turned to loose balls. One has to ensure that the tobacco is not packed too tightly, as it expands in the bowl during glowing down. As the tobacco is relatively supple, the surface could be flattened well to facilitate the light up.
The Classic One could be light up well with 2 or 3 flames. At first it straightens up, so it’s necessary to depress with the tamper and re-light it.
After lighting up one can notice a slight tingling sensation on the tongue - an indication that The Classic One must be smoked with a little more attention, so that the tobacco does not bite on the tongue. But by the coarse "ready rubbed" cut of the tobacco it glows even relatively slowly by itself, so that the temperature could be controlled well. The taste is determined mainly of ripe, slightly sweet Virginia and mixes with the subtle, spicy-sour taste of the Oriental. Glowing down is slow with little condensate. The remaining ash is medium gray.
The redolence is pleasant with a light, unobtrusive sweetness of Virginia. The Oriental, however, is hardly noticeable. The Classic One is therefore suitable for almost all occasions and societies.
The Classic One is a "ready rubbed" flake from ripe, sweet Virginia and some Oriental, what can also be recognized in the taste. The tobacco needs more attention in terms of the temperature, but then unfolds its full flavor on the tongue without biting. The Oriental can be recognized as a spicy-sour component in the background, the Virginia prevails both in taste and in the redolence. The burn is slow and it develops only less condensate. The Classic One is a tobacco for every occasion. It is recommended for experienced Virginia lover, but also the cautious beginner.
