Tabac De La Semois: La Volute 3.5oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-666-0004

Known for its use of Semois leaf — a Burley varietal grown in Belgium's Ardennes Valley — Tabac Manil here presents their fourth pipe tobacco blend, La Volute. Like the La Brumeuse blend, La Volute consists purely of Semois tobacco but is cut more like a crumble cake rather than a ribbon. Such a cut makes for a more rustic blend that highlights different characteristics of the leaf and offers a longer smoking time than Tabac Manil's more finely cut blends.

My Preferred “Plume” From Vincent Manil
February 14, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
La Volute, or The Plume. This was the last of the four Vincent Manil blends I ever had the pleasure of sampling, and Lord am I glad I did. And I am grateful for not just Manil himself but also the New York Times writer who brought his popularity to A... Read More
I Just Don't Get It!
January 13, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Pardon me for my opinion, but I simply DON'T GET why so many other pipe smokers claim to love the taste of this, and for that matter ALL of the Manil Semois blends. There's so much that I don't get. The packaging sucks. I'm aware that the leaf is s... Read More
New cut same great Semois
December 25, 2020
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Only a few bowls in but really enjoying the new cut. I would say its more of a extra thick cut but some the ribbon is cut short to give a chunkier cut to it before forming it into a brick. It makes it easy to pack and light just not a traditional &qu... Read More

Vincent Manil Wins Again
March 05, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Smoking my first round of this. Unmistakably Manil Semois but it has a slight hint of a mintlike note. This tobacco wants to be packed more tightly than I usually pack. I keep all my tobacco with 55% humidity packs, which doesn’t change Manil’s famou... Read More

Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
I've gone through my first block of this tobacco. I was going to write another long and excessively detailed review, but I see a few already informative reviews here. One observation: I'm surprised what difference the cut of the same tobacco makes in... Read More
Notes From LES
January 17, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
I was really kind of skeptical when I bought as many units of this tabac as I did, for two reasons. First, I'm a devout Lat-forward English blend sorta guy. Second, I've not developed a penchant for Burley. Okay, three reasons. I've not had a heckuva... Read More
The barn's going burn
February 25, 2023
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Im not sure why or what prompted me to ask smokingpipes.com to notify me when this tobacco was back in stock, but I’m so glad I did. When I got the notification, rereading the description, I thought, ”but I don’t care for Burleys.” Going by gut feel... Read More
Great tobocco
October 03, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
It's very earthy, a little spicy with herbal notes, a little bread, a lot of wood, and grassy vegetation, with a light nutty sweetness. Nice and quality tobocco indeed.

Great Burley
January 06, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Simple, smooth, and simple again. Came in fairly dry, I think that was due to the packaging, but smoked right away anyways. Lit up immediately, and was easy to keep lit. Very thick ribbons, so packing was unique to me, but not difficult. I love the f... Read More
Bizzaro Burley
February 23, 2023
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
This is a high quality tobacco - dry and unorthodox by American standards. It smokes fast and relatively cool, with a ton of body. While a lot of American Burley blends are one-trick ponies, this blend has two or three powerful, distinctive notes t... Read More
awesome!
December 18, 2022
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Package note of mildly sweet, earthy, and mild licorice. Tobacco is brown fat ribbon cut, a little on the dry side but soft, no prep needed. Burns fast with few relights. The strength is medium and nic is medium. No flavoring detected. Taste is mediu... Read More
Strange cut beautiful tin note
July 01, 2022
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
I knew I would like this because of its origins but I don’t know if the cut is ideal. It comes in a dry brick of mangled stem and leaf. It’s awkward to pack and smoke but I did experience three distinct flavor changes within the same bowl a very smoo... Read More

Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
This is a very good basic tobacco with a unique profile. My only complaint is the large chunks of stem material. Otherwise would be five stars.
Great pipe tobacco for Habanos fan !!
January 09, 2021
Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
Though many suggests that if you are Burley fan then you’re going to love Semoi. This could be true somehow but personally I’m not a Burley fan even though I’m tried to adapt it lately. Be a Habanos Aficionado for years. This Tabac Mani is mostly li... Read More

Product: Tabac De La Semois La Volute 3.5oz
First time I've ever seen it but, it was at least 75% stems! I ended up throwing it b/c it wasn't worth the trouble cleaning out all the stems to smoke. I have two more vaccumed sealed but, I'm not really jumping to open them up. Disappointed for sur... Read More
