If you fancy a spicy taste and want to deeply enjoy this experience right to the end, the The Oriental Spice is your tobacco of choice. The finest Orient and Virginia origins are carefully fermented in the press. A dash of latakia (sorry, we can´t disclose the dose here) adds to the incredible richness of this blend.
