Originally produced only for the foreign market (Russia, Canada and a few other countries), this aromatic blend only became available in the UK in 2013.
Built on a base of Virginias, a dash of Burley and a little (American style) Black Cavendish. To give this tobacco its “aromatic” quality, Coconut toppings are used.
As soon as you pop the seal on the tin, you are enticed with a coconut aroma and when you open it fully it hits you. While this isn’t going to win any awards for the strongest flavoured tobacco around, it’s enough to make you want to fill a bowl and give it a go.
The thick ribbon cut makes for an easy packing, it’s best not to load up too tight. Once you take a light to the bowl, the tobacco fluffs up and you are rewarded with a very tasty charring light. With a little tamping, you are in business and you see why this tobacco is so highly desired. The smoke is smooth and cool thanks to the Burley and Black Cavendish, the Virginia keeps the blend refreshing and bright. The coconut toppings add a wonderful, almost bounty chocolate filling taste to the tobacco and all the time you still get the SG Virginia flavours.
