Tabac Manil - Le Petit Robin 100g
I recently received my Smokingpipes order which included a brick of Le Petit Robin. Like most other reviewers, I couldn’t believe all the various aromas wafting from my pipe while smoking this fine blend and yet, while unable to identify them all, one nuance suddenly struck me - CEDAR! Yes, that’s right; like a fine cedar aroma and taste from an aged Havana cigar, Le Petit Robin exudes an occasional smell of sweet, delicious cedar, which I love. Don’t get me wrong, this Semois blend doesn’t taste like a cigar (to me, anyways) - I’ll smoke a cigar if I want that kind of taste profile. Rather, Le Petit Robin contains a myriad of tastes and aromas including herbs, moss, earth, grass, floral spices, a bit of sweetness and malt. But for me, the biggest win and something I’ve been looking for in a pipe tobacco, is that wonderful smell of cedar. I would recommend you put this in your pipe and smoke it.
