For Newminster's blend No.84, Oriental Pipe Cut, smooth aromatic taste with hints of gentle oriental spice added by the mellow and sweet Turkish tobaccos, complement ripe Virginias from the best areas in Africa.
Bill B. nailed the description well, though I didn't experience any bite to speak of.
I primarily smoke VA's, but I do enjoy orientals, smoking blending oriental straight at times. This is a nice change of pace. The VA takes charge, but the oriental...

Upon receiving it the appearance, texture and dryness made me concerned. I really expected it to burn hot and bite. It did neither. Smoked cool and bite-less all the way to a fine silver ash. A great all day smoke. I haven't played around with it yet, but I imagine it would be a wonderful blender. Something to lighten up a latakia blend that's too heady, or a VA that's too bland. This is something that I will order by the pound in the future. It's just that good.
Thus far I have been very pleased with all of the Newminster bulk tobacco's I have tried. Read Less
Just nice Virginia with a background sour spice. It arrived slightly dry but that's OK. A night in the humi with a moisture puck will straighten it out fine. It smokes nice and it's a perfect break from my other blends. Nothing special. Just good tob... Read Moreacco flavor. Read Less
I can see this being an all day blend. The aroma is sweet, fragrant, and slightly sour. Not surprisingly, it does burn a little hot due to the cut and natural sugars in virginia and oriental tobacco, but this can be managed by sipping and savouring t...

This was the first Oriental blend I have tried. I normally smoke aromatics and virginias. It came very dry but I would almost prefer that because when it is weighed I get more volume and I can always humidify it to my liking. I really did not notice ... Read Morethe sweetness that some people mentioned. To me a slight spiciness was probably the most noticeable note. It definitely did not have the same aromatic taste and room note that some of the other blends I smoke have. This would not be a blend I would smoke around my wife who is very picky about the room note Read Less
I just don't know what it is with me and Newminster. I like most of MacBaren's tobaccos, and with their weight behind this brand, Newminster's offerings should appeal to me, right? Not even close: I have tried several of their blends in the past and ... Read MoreI have found each one disappointing in one way or another. Still, given my love of Orientals, as well as the very favorable reviews here, I went ahead and ordered 4oz of No. 84. The only good thing I can say about it is that it has a fairly pleasant room note. To me the tobacco tastes more like a cigarette than anything else, and it leaves a harsh and bitter after-taste. Sorry, but no more Newminster for me. Read Less
