Esoterica: Margate 2oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-024-0003

Esoterica's Margate is a classical English mixture done in the "old style" of many of the fine tobaccos that have now disappeared from the market place. Choice Orientals and generous quantities of premium Cyprian Latakia keynote this rich, full-bodied blend. A well balanced, robust, and eminently satisfying smoke.

E家 马盖特 2017年 生草:烟熏、铁腥、果香、炭火。 点火后:果香、烟熏、果炭、坚果、果干、浓郁的深色系水果、果酱、木香、铁腥、甘草、花香、杏仁。 口腔里面能感受到:果酸与甘甜、柠檬、柑橘、蜜甜,各种味道都很浓郁,不自觉的会分泌唾液。 烟气方面,整体浓郁、厚重,风味强烈,烟气凉爽过鼻舒服,鼻腔会有残留一些淡淡的烟熏味儿。燃烧稳定。 总的来说,我个人感觉你如果是一个拉塔基亚爱好者,一定要尝试一下这款马盖特,它有着令人着迷的香气与口感,一斗下来,持续且稳定。是一场L草的盛宴,满足了我对所有巴尔... Read More

Product: Esoterica Margate 2oz
My favorite tobacco's are all from the English family, and this rises above the rest. It might not necessarily be the most traditional English, especially if you just consider the different tin-notes. This one doesn't smell and taste like a brisket i... Read More

Best English blend I have smoked. I wish I preferred something easier to get, but alas! I have an easy time mechanically, too. Only 1-2 relights, maybe 3 in a very deep bowl.

One of the easier Esoterica blends to get. An enjoyable oriental blend that is worth the hunt.

I'm a freak for Turkish/Oriental leaves so this is by far my favorite Esoterica. Va/Lats are dime a dozen but the introduction of Turkish leaves really takes this to the next level. Think cirtusy sweet virginias with that musky, woodsy latakia; a... Read More

Got this a while back. My first English so nothing to compare it to. Like it a lot and could end up in rotation once I have some comparisons. Lots of different components all playing a role. Depending on the puff, can be sweet, tangy, spicy or smoky.... Read More

Of the three Esoterica blends I've tried so far, this one is just so....bland. The best way i can put it, is like smoking a piece of wood. It left an awful aftertaste that i could not get rid of. I personally think Artisans Blend is better, cheaper a... Read More
Clean English Blend

Product: Esoterica Margate 8oz
Margate is a clean English blend. If you miss the quality tobacco blends from before the large U.K. production got shut down or moved to Denmark then this is about as close as you are going to get.
great English Blend

Boring compared to many other Englishes. Completely overrated. And for being a shag cut it is very difficult to keep lit

A few years ago I acquired a large amount of Penzance along with a good number of miscellaneous tins - seveveral were of 1913 Margate. I have to admit, when I first decanted a tin into a mason jar, I wasn't impressed. And so the jar sat in my cella... Read More

Not the best old school English out there, but is made up of quality tobaccos.

This blend was really on point. Have not had a better blend english wise so far! Aroma was sweet with a little spice. Taste was great and got better towards the bottom. I would recommend some air time or it has a issue with staying lit. Great blend... Read More

A fantastic, traditional, old style English blend, indeed. Evokes good old memories. Very balanced and skilfully selected Orientals, kind of warm, creamy, full body aroma, no beak pecking spiciness. Scrumptious Latakia. Rich palette of flavours. Natu... Read More

one of the better english blends I have tried. Burns well and does not bite. If english blends are your thing - this might be your new favorite. . . . if it ever comes back in stock

I literally saw this email notification pop up. It was sold pout in 5 seconds. I am starting to think the smoking pipe employees are buying these esoterica blends up.

The cut, the moisture level, the note, and most importantly the taste... what I imagined an English blend tasting like before I'd ever tasted an English blend. I've tasted quite a few but always come home to Margate. It's burn is flawless, leaving a ... Read More

I love english and lat heavy tobaccos, this one really doesn't do it for me. Picked up 2 tins while it was in stock, I've smoked the first one and really tried to like it, unfortunately it just falls flat for me. Perhaps I had expected more due to th... Read More

If you like latakia then this is a tobacco for you, there is some sweetness to this tobacco. Not that interested in the shag cut, but that is not to take away from this tobacco, just a good smoke.

Superb! Possibly the best English blend from possibly the finest blender J.F. Germain. A Rich, exotic, smooth and cool smoke. Cellar a tin - its even better with age.
Perfect blend

This is a delicious blend, with great latakia and fabulous orientals. However, considering the proportions and the role they play, and despite what many people say, I call it a Balkan mixture. Anyway, it's great and worthy of the fame.
