Tobacco Absolute (Oriental)

Adam Michael has this to say “If you smell from the bottle it’s a wow material, Oriental tobacco absolute is strong, masculine, very distinctive, hay, woody, virginian cedarwood, cigar rich, and packing real punch. However it’s a different animal altogether on the smelling strip. The first thing I notice is how extraordinarily dry this material is. Also to my nose this aroma is reminiscent of smelling my old army kitbag – giving off a very heavy musty cotton smell. The longevity is not as impressive as the burley or virginia varieties, lasting for two days and drying out with musty hay notes and some tonka bean powdery sweetness.

Produced by solvent extracting dried tobacco leaves (Oriental variety), viscous liquid and the colour is dark greenish brown to black-brown.”
