My first thought was that this was a tobacco that would not need to be relit. Once lit, there was no stopping it. Dark humor aside, I enjoy the German aromatics. The flavors are a bit more subtle. I will keep a couple tins to sample from time to time... Read More, but it isn't anything special. Read Less

Led Zeppelin jokes aside, this is a classic blend.
I have been happy with every Vauen tobacco I've ever bought. Zeppelin, or “No. Z” as they label the tin, is no exception. I'm not sure why they would want to name such a great medium English blend “Zeppelin” but I think it has more to do with the nob... Read Morele family name than the Hindenburg disaster or English classic rock legends Led Zeppelin. Fact is, this would be a good tobacco no matter what name you gave it. It is a classic in its own rite with a well balanced blend of Latakia, Virginia, Burley and a touch of Black Cavendish. The Virginia and Latakia hold the center stage with the Burley adding support with the Black Cavendish almost lost in the mix. Some reviews claim this is a sweet English-aromatic blend, but I don't think so (try Vauen's English Blend No. 22 for that). It may be on the light to medium scale, but it is an English blend. In fact, I'm not certain that they use a sweetened Cavendish here. What little sweetness I get seems to be more from the Latakia and Virginia working so well together. The flavor is definitely more smokey than sweet. The Latakia and (Kentucky?) Burley produce that barbecue bouquet, albeit on the light side (it's not like Three Nuns strong). The cut, packing, lighting...all fairly standard. This isn't a top shelf English blend, but easily could be an all-day, EDC. If I had to think of another blend this reminds me of, I'd say Presbyterian. While Presbyterian has a little more going on with the orientals, they have a similar anytime appeal in strength and flavor. Zeppelin should please any English fans. As long as you're not hoping for a Latakia overload, this should do you fine. Enjoy. Read Less
