Cairo is a wonderfully complex mixture of Red, Orange and bright Virginia tobaccos, exotic Oriental leaf, and just a whisper of Perique from G. L. Pease. 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.
I bought this because I like his black point,and the blend has a wonderful mixture of Red, Orange and bright Virginia tobaccos, exotic Oriental leaf,I never had a Tobacco with Orange Virginia,so i thought I'd give it a try.I opened the can and smelle... Read Mored it,and usually I do that with all my Tobacco,however I kept smelling it for over 5 minutes,i knew right then i had something special.This Tobacco did not disappoint me. It's not to wet and it burns very slow. I only had to lite my pipe once.So far i had 3 bowls of it and each one is great.However if your looking for strong Perique,this Tobacco may not be for you.ThisTobacco can be smoked all day.I like english blends but this Virginia blend is a nice break from Latakia Blends.The room notes is also great,so I'm told by my wife.

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.

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-something spiced lightly with a touch of lemon and a hint of pepper. It's good. Give it a try. It's not one of Greg Pease's more renowned efforts, but it's wholly unique. Of course, I've only smoked 40 tobaccos, give or take; so, take that for what it is worth. Read Less
