Yesterday, I made a quick post noting that I received my sampler from Sterling Tobacco Company. This sampler gives you a choice of three tobaccos. You get more than an ounce of each tobacco (this is a guess, based on comparison to a 1.5 ounce pack of Half & Half) for $7, shipped. Here's the link: www.sterlingtobacco.com.
I chose their Double Eagle, American Patriot and Old Dominion blends. I dipped into them today, and they are simply AMAZING! I've been smoking drugstore tobaccos...
A blend of ripe Virginia tobacco spiced with pure Louisiana Perique. The distinctive aroma of Perique combined with the natural sweetness of Virginia tobaccos provides a wonderful characteristic taste. The center of mellow, fermented Black Cavendish serves to smoother the general impression and rounding the taste. It is all a handcrafted process from selecting the best tobacco, blending, rolling, cutting, and packing. The result is an unparalleled smoking experience.

Smooth, creamy, subtle sweetness with slight spiciness like ginger and cinnamon in curry. Rich tasting; not vague. The Latakia (which I am just learning about) seemed to be there in the woodiness but not bitey or overpowering. Cool smoke! Looking forward to my next bowl!

The villagers roll the leaves into 10 foot long sticks of pure tobacco which they then bind using hand made cord to protect from the outside air.

Grandfather’s Own Blend is a great early morning smoke, after (or with) that first cup of the day, smoked around the family, friends or around town because of it’s great room note. This aromatic was blended for my grandfather 45 years ago and was among my first blends. It has the taste of exotic Brazilian Cocoa, with a touch of vanilla and brown sugar, and it makes this burley and virginia blend an even balanced and great everyday smoke.
