McConnell: Oriental 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-042-0014

One of McConnell's original blends dating back to 1848, Oriental mixture comprises — as expected — predominantly Oriental varietals from Turkey, Macedonia, and the Levant, as well as Cypriot Latakia. It also includes Bright Virginias and a touch of Black Cavendish for added body. It's an ideal Balkan blend — presented in an easy-to-pack ribbon cut.

What a delight!

The aroma in the tin and Mason jar is slightly sweet and somewhat incense-like, and the taste doesn't disappear between the bowl and the mouth. It burns slowly and well, and doesn't overheat the pipe. The Cavendish is slightly sweet, the Latakia does... Read More

One of my favorite blends, absolutely in love with this stuff. If you’d like Orientals it is a must try. Whenever it’s available whatever you do, don’t buy it. Mostly so I can buy more of it. But seriously it’s absolutely fantastic.
High Class mixture here.

This is by far my favorite tobacco. The tin note is entoxicatingly rich and the flavor when lit is every bit as good, from first puff to last.

Sugar (inverted), Propylene glycol, Glycerol, Flavoring. When considering the many additives in pipe tobacco today, McConnell (Kohlhase Kopp), uses relatively little. Oriental is a soft, sweet, oriental-forward English. While many may conside... Read More

I can't detect Latakia in this mixture so I would call it a Balkan rather than an English blend. If you like English blends but don't want a Lat bomb this might be just the stuff for you. It can be harsh if it isn't smoked very slowly but it is com... Read More

I'm a big fan of Dunhill's Standard and London Mixtures, Oriental fit right in. Very nice tin note and visual appeal. Started out similar to London Mixture but with a pleasant Cavendish smoothness on the inhale and an arid Turkish note on the exhale.... Read More

I really enjoy smoking Oriental blends and this is no exception. I tend to compare everything to Durbar, so here goes. This has a great tin aroma of figs and raisins, is also very appealing to the eye. This was a very easy to enjoy smoke with great... Read More
