Black is the most popular tobacco blend offered by Sillem's, one of our favorite German tobacco brands. This is technically an aromatic, but the added Latakia gives it a small whisper of an english blend. This ribbon cut tobacco has a fruity casing added to the primarily Burley blend. With a mild/medium strength, this blend will suffice for the more full bodied smokers, but it tame enough to be enjoyed by the greenhorn.

This is a wonderfully elegant medium-bodied smoke. Very well balanced too - the topping is noticeable but gentle, allowing the tobaccos to really shine. The latakia rounds out the blend nicely and isn't really there in an 'in your face' sort of way. Great round taste and a satisfying amount of body,
