Esoterica - Pembroke 2oz
I am in love!
I haven't smoked all the esoterica blends but I have smoked the majority of them and Pembroke is my personal favorite.They say it's Margate with a cognac topping but it's hard for me to believe that is the only difference because this tastes way better and quite abit different.The shag cut is stringy and slightly damp you may need to slightly dry but my tin was perfect right out of the tin. After a char light and true light it burned down to fine white ash.The flavor is so layered it's hard for me to nail down everything my tongue and nose picked up on,tasted very different from the semi spicy note from the tin.It almost had a perfume incense type smell while being smoked.Its just difficult for me to breakdown the flavors other than very good and silky smooth, almost a slight floral note/taste that was extremely pleasant and the flavor stayed on the tongue very heavily afterwards and just made me crave more.If this was easier to come by it would be an everyday smoke for me. I have been lucky enough to get two tins and a bag, finishing off the first tin and cellaring the rest for special occasions because this is most definitely a treat to smoke.If you like Margate I think you may like this even more.If you get the chance pick up some for yourself and you won't regret it except for maybe the fact that you will just crave more!
