There are things in life about which one does not speak, but simply enjoys quietly. The creation "My Special One" undoubtedly belongs to it. As a Ready Rubbed Flake of the rather powerful variety, it concentrates on the essentials and does not shine with fashion effects. Simply tobacco. Not more but also not less. A wonderfully dark Virginia / Perique Broken mixed with some Darkfired Kentucky and Cypriot Latakia. This creates a sweetish-earthy mixture, which is not quite commonplace. Just the right thing for the special smoke.
The My Special One is a medium brown Ready Rubbed, with darker and few bright parts. The smell that flows from the tin into the nose is smoky-sweet and already betrays the contained Latakia, even if it is not typical for this to be called. In addition, a spicy-lemon flavor is to sniff, but everything from a natural tobacco! The moisture of the well done, but not too fine Ready Rubbed is exactly right to be stuffed immediately.
The My Special One can be best rolled into a loose ball brought into the whistle. It is also possible to grind it even more finely - however it is stuffed, it should not be too tight, since the pressed tobacco raises under the flame.
Since the My Special One is an originally pressed tobacco, it rises a little under the flame. However, this can quickly be smoothed with the tamper and after a further flame, the My Special One burns down easily and without problems.
The exuberant smoke of the My Special One is first mild, cool and lightly flowery. In the course of smoking the tobacco is gaining power, the flavor becomes spicier and notes of toasted bread and Kentucky-spiciness are clearly visible, furthermore, a delicate floralness is tasted in the background until in the end only the strong spice of the tobacco dominates. Nevertheless, the tobacco does not overstate, even if it tends in the stronger direction. The burn is so quiet that the My Special One hardly needs attention and one is almost surprised when the pipe goes out and only medium gray ash with few crumbs and hardly condensate remain behind.
The redolency of the My Special One is clearly for tobacco by the content of Latakia and should therefore only be smoked in a very tolerant or also smoking society.
The My Special One is a predominantly medium brown Ready Rubbed, which can be easily stuffed and inflamed. Fans of more powerful Mixtures will find in the My Special One an uncomplicated and yet not boring tobacco. The My Special One combines spicy and floral notes and is not too strong, but not too weak, so that it could be smoked by the side, if this would not be too bad...
