This Oriental is, as the name promises, pure Izmir. Cornell & Diehl Izmir Turkish is spicy, a little sour (in a pleasant way) with a buttery sweet finish. A unique and outstanding pipe tobacco that you’ll want in bulk for regular use.

    Izmir Turkish.

    Posted by Paul W. on 10th Jun 2019

    This was my first oriental/Turkish blend that was intended for blending so I wasn't sure of what to expect.

    What I found was a mild to medium tobacco that's not too bad smoked straight.
    It is more subtle than I expected. A touch spicy, buttery, that's a bit sour/sweet. (In a good way)

    Has a mild nicotine content.
    IT is nice smoked straight when wanting straight tobacco that's a bit different.
    It's rather good mixed with a straight Virginia & would be good blending tobacco to give a lift to blander blends & to mix one's own English/Balkan blends.

    It's excellent value. Highly recommended for blending & for those who like a straight tobacco taste.

    Robust and full-flavored, yet not harsh or biting. Very nice for blending.

    C&D Izmir Turkish

    This is some good smoke... Moisten it a wee tad and it's good to go for either pipe or paper. Been smoking this type for years and have never gotten tired of it, either straight up or blended with other oriental and/or Virginia. Enjoy!

    Usually, Turkish and Oriental blends tend to be harsh and biting, but not this one! It delivers rich flavor and is exceptionally smooth for its heritage. It is a delight to smoke and is the primary ingredient in my "Industrial Strength" blend.

    C&D Izmir Turkish

    Posted by Ron Greene on 28th Dec 2017

    I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted C&D's Izmir Turkish. Usually, Oriental tobaccos are strong-flavored and harsh, but not this one. I found it to be full-flavored, rich-tasting, and surprisingly smooth. It is now a mainstay in my blending kit.
