Savinelli's Giubileo d'Oro: Tasting Notes

I'm pleased to see another flake being added to Savinelli's line of tobaccos, after last year's introduction of the decadent Brunello Flake. And this new blend has arrived just in time for the colder months, which is fortunate because Giubileo d'Oro flake is an impeccably-blended, all-day English.

It doesn't have too heavy of a Latakia presence, and a solid base of tangy and sweet Virginia leaf balances well with the creamy, smoky dark leaf. I bet this one will age well, when compared to other Lat-heavy flakes, and I have been smoking bowl after bowl without feeling any flavor fatigue.

Smokers who favor English blends will find a new favorite for puffing on throughout the day (or until the evening when they might want something stronger/fuller), and those of us who favor other types of pipe tobacco will enjoy the medium strength and flavor for a change-of-pace, winter smoke.

    • Excited to try this one. So, what is the pipe with the white stem?

    • @Peckinpahombre If you're looking for an all-day English flake with tang and sweetness, then you'll dig this one! The pipe is one of our Ropp Vintage Briar Sandblasts and the stem is actually Horn.
