I bet you know this flavor already.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
So many blends simply list "orientals" as an ingredient, but there are so many different varieties it's hard to know what flavor a blend will have. To make matters worse, they aren't all available straight for blending to familiarize our palates wit... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
Although I have had this tobacco in a blend, I wanted to try this straight to experience it. At first I was surprised with the nutty flavor, then sweetness, spice and something else. I couldn't put my finger on it, then it hit me. Corn silk. Now you... Read More
What a great surprise

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
I was used to percive orientals as spicy, a bit sour, with a metallic taste. Actually this is true only when combined to virginias or other tobaccos. This one tastes a little like smoked wood, like a faint latakia, and it has sweetness. Sometimes it ... Read More

I'll lead with the fact that I'm hugely surprised by Izmir and thoroughly enjoy it. Its a very flavorful yet manageable solo smoke in a loosely packed bowl. It has a nutty, almond sweetness and walnutty sharpness in parallel with a tea like woody, u... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
I'm reviewing the bulk. It came very dry, which had me worried. But when I sampled it, I realized it was not a problem, it's just lacking any added casing for obvious blending purposes. It's pure. By itself, wow: It packs well and smokes easy, maybe ... Read More
Exotic; Akin to Milk Oolong Tea and Hay
June 19, 2021
Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
This is NOT a mediocre leaf, and it's an absolute pleasure to smoke, and one of only a few to be smoked neat. It possesses a silky/creamy mouthfeel, while the taste encompassed in that creaminess consists of a buttery verdant sweetness, with just a ... Read More

Izmir Turkish的Orientals包含一种神秘的微妙香气,有点像不那么辛辣的Perique放大版,很讨喜!至于用它进行自制混合,那一定是一项复杂的工程,我也许可以在有些经验和兴致的时候尝试尝试^_^

Sweet and sour...probably going to be good for blending. I think Emperor Constantine would approve.

It Mimics Bright Virginia as a Blending Component

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
This tobacco goes really well with burley blends. It has a rather distinctive sweetness when you combine it with other tobaccos. The leaf is quite clean and I cannot detect any casings or added flavour. I think we are lucky we can buy this as a blend... Read More
A good component

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
This made for a nice component to play around with other blends. I didn't care for it alone but that is a personal preference. It is a good tobacco with a distinct aroma and flavor.

I like tobaccos to come to me dry so I don't have to pay for water, which I can add if it needs it, Having some moisturizing stones I added or moisturized this tobacco to suit my preference. Tasty and smokes well. Should be a good addition to my Lata... Read More

Again, very strong

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
Don’t hammer this or you will get the meat sweats quickly. This stuff is great but packs a punch. I would add this to anything beside Virginia’s. I find it gets sour if mixed with Virginia’s. Other than throat have at it and go slow. Boom!
Excellent Condiment
April 20, 2021
Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
This stuff is a great condiment or blending component. A little flat on its own, but adds a very nice depth and dimension to any blend. Really good stuff for home blending. Mix a pinch in with some red Virginia ribbon and some bright flake, then spri... Read More

Ideal base blender

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
I was working on my own little alchemic mixture and used this as my base, very lovely and smooth with the upmost purity and quality. Scent reminds me a bit of tea leaves before being mixed.
Great for blending

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
If you're into blending you should smoke the components standalone. No brainer right? Izmir by itself isn't overly complex. I taste mild grassy sweetness, but to me it has more of a light pine or cedar flavor to it. Again the aroma has a cedar qualit... Read More

I don’t like it straight but it is good for fooling around with your tobacco and also expanding your palate.
Confused

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
i expected more. I dont know but for me this tobacco its very dry and for that reason burns fast and without good smoke. The taste its good, spicy, different but for me doesnt burns well.
Well, I agree

Product: Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish Bulk
As others have said, there is just something about this tobacco. Its not massively special, it just has this hook about it. The bag smell (bulk) is almost Virginia-y, the burning smell is trance inducing and the taste is just different. Different. Th... Read More

I like this one a lot when I want a "classic" smoke. Earthy and authentic. Even Old World cosmopolitan. Burns well too.
Greatly different

I really like this blend of flavor. Something unusually tasty I quite can't recognize. I mixed some Gaslight with it to give dimension, and it is my favorite tobacco right now. Very good without the Gaslight though ;)

Despite being a spice tobacco, that I only knew as an ingredient of English blends, it is not too strong, and is good on it's own. Of course, not complex, but that exotic aroma is fascinating. Flavor is good too, natural and pleasant. Something diffe... Read More
