This delicate golden brown tobacco is grown in Turkey, along the Black Sea and is named after the province in this region. This specific variety of Samsun is known for its taste and aroma, as it is considered by many to one of the top quality pipe tobaccos in the world.
Grown just south of the Black Sea in Turkey, this top quality Oriental tobacco has a sweet, nutty flavor that has been known and cultivated for centuries. Often considered one of the top pipe tobaccos in the world, this leaf can also be used to create classic Oriental cigarette blends as well, and has a size and shape similar to the Krumovgrad Bulgarian Oriental.

Just got my first order of different samples and lit a bowl of Samsun Turkish Ortiental.
I don't think I will ever be able to buy pre-blended tobacco again, or anything that isn't whole leaf. The freshness is incredible, the taste is at the same time crisp and subtle. You can tell you are smoking an actual plant. And somehow, less nicotine is lost in the process. The aroma for this specific blend is beautiful. Mellow, but deep, and full of understated spices. And it has incredible character.
By far the nicest smoke I have ever had.
