G. L. Pease: Cairo 8oz

Product Number: 003-029-0022

Cairo is a wonderfully complex mixture of Red, Orange and bright Virginia tobaccos, exotic Oriental leaf, and just a whisper of Perique. The flavor is naturally sweet, slightly nutty, delicately spicy and rich. Subtle citrus-like notes harmoniously support the more robust flavors of the darker Virginias. A medium-bodied tobacco with a delicate aroma, Cairo will satisfy Virginia lovers and the connoisseur of Oriental mixtures alike.

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
One of the best tin notes ever. It smells like a very good Oriental blend that was stored in a spice cabinet. Tastes good all the way through the bowl. Oriental heavy (not Latakia) with a solid Virginia (main flavor) base and a delicious after tas... Read More
Another Great Offering

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 8oz
G.L. Pease has managed to come up with yet another excellent mixture. Cairo is a complex blend of several quality Virginias of varying colors, rich, buttery Orientals that also offer a little zest and herbal quality to the blend, and a touch of peppe... Read More
Not For Me!

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
Orientals are like Aromatics in that they are so vastly different that it's hard to earn a consistently high rating. I'm sure other people will love this blend but it's not to my palette. The specific choice of Virginias remind me of cigarettes t... Read More
Oriental lovers dream

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
Fragrant and spicy. All the classic oriental flavors ranging from spicy to sour. Can burn hot if you are not careful. My only criticism is i wish it had a touch more sweetness. A pinch more red or dark virginia would make this an easy 5 star for me.... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
When you open the tin, you'll be greeted with the sweet virginias...I was nervous at first that Cairo would be too mild (I am a cigar smoker). The virginias add a nice soft oak-tannin flavor with a fair about of sweetness. The perique and orientals... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
We always have high hope on everything we try from such a well known blender but I must admit this was a bit of a disappointment for me. It is without question a blend of excellent tobaccos and I can see where it would be a hit for some but for some ... Read More
Great Alternative

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
Once again Greg Pease has worked his magic with this great Virginia blend. If you have reached the point where all English blends have the same Latakia taste, try Cairo for a refreshing change of pace. You will definitely not be disappointed. Lip-sma... Read More

Cairo in a bowl

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
This blend caught my interest purely by name, as it is named after the city I live in and G.L. said he was inspired by the city when creating this blend. So, I tried it and I think that Pease created a masterpiece here. On opening the tin, you are we... Read More

Sweet and spicy with plenty of body. Almost delicate. Rich and flavorful without being overbearing. My new morning favorite, replacing Dunhill London in the rotation.

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
This is an incredible blend from the master, clean and rich tobacco taste, exotic and enchanting. A blend that needs to be sipped slowly. A real taste treat.
Subtly spicy

Product: G. L. Pease Cairo 2oz
I liked it. It's been a while since I've had a bowl, but it had nuance, for lack of a more concrete word. There was a touch of spice, not Cypriot or Syrian latakia style, more peppery. There was also some mild raciness to it, like a nice acidic dish-... Read More
