This tobacco, very similar to Basma, is a golden yellow / brown Oriental type tobacco leaf that is grown in Bulgaria, a country with a tradition in production of high quality tobacco. This is a quick growing, shorter and smaller leafed tobacco that provides a sweet, pleasant flavor and smooth burn that Oriental tobacco is known for.
Basma, in Turkish, means 'to compress', which is a good way to describe this leaf. Often pressed into bales, this whole leaf tobacco exhibits size and aroma similar to the late Yenidje, with a very floral taste and aroma. An incredibly light smoking leaf, this tobacco pairs well with a lighter tasting leaf, such as the Canadian Virginia Flue Cured.
