The medium body flavor and strength of this tobacco makes is perfect for the smoker that loves full flavored tobacco but is looking for something a bit more mild to begin the day. On the other hand this blend makes a lovely evening tobacco for the smoker who prefers a more tame blend. Either way you will enjoy the combination of Virginia Cyprian Latakia that makes up this pressed flake blend. Rub out a flake, fill your bowl, and enjoy the smooth smoke of Savinelli Giubileo d'Oro!

Absolutely one of the finest packaged flakes. perfection in a square tin. It has a flavor that is so subtle but yet so full it is in a class by itself. As you get into the bowl it gives you delicate little surprises of different flavors that seem to ebb and flow through your senses. I tend to rub this flake out taking the time to enjoy the process as flake tobacco helps you slow down and relax that is the sheer beauty of the pipe you are filling. It smokes effortlessly with ( if packed correctly) no relights and it smokes extremely cool and burns right down to the bottom of the bowl with a very fine white ash again just amazing
Medium strength, not aromatic and not very tasty.
Lots of good things to say. The smell from the tin is absolutely mouthwatering. Perfectly pressed and cut flakes, packs great, burns better. I found the Virginias in this to be excellent, sweeter and tangier than the more traditional English blends I've had. The latakia is present but not the forerunner here and it maintains a very delicate balance throughout. Truly a pleasure to smoke from top to bottom of a bowl.
This is an excellent flake that smokes smooth and is rich in flavor. Definitely, one I will keep in my rotation.
Larry nailed it with his prior review. I just finished my first tin of Giubileo d' Oro and my first taste of Savinelli tobacco. I had heard Savinelli delivered on quality and I was not disappointed. My taste leans toward the Latakia bombs and the Cyprian Latakia in this blend is deliciously present and married perfectly with sweet Virginia. This is a smooth and satisfying all day smoke. The tin note is rich and leathery and mouthwatering. It more than lives up to the 'Golden Jubilee' translation and I just ordered 2 more tins!
Exquisite and perfectly balanced. Ultra dry and smooth. Perfectly cut flakes with just the right amount of moisture.
Bright and delicate aroma. Translated from the Italian means Golden Jubilee. That is what you will experience with this marvelous tobacco.
