Favorite Tobaccos

  • Super User

I've had the privilege to review and sample quite a number of tobaccos despite the unavailability of most of the range of tobaccos in South Africa.

For some unknown reason, we in South Africa have only access to Peterson's tobacco and of course, local blended tobaccos. My favourite tobaccos (which will obviously be updated as I try and review more) are listed below. I also had an opportunity to purchase a cellar of tobacco from a friend who don't like "Latakia"-based blends anymore. And as you will notice, Latakia-based tobaccos are my favourite tobaccos. I've reviewed most of these on my review pages and also on TobaccoReviews.com. A complete list of my cellar is also available on TobaccoCellar.com - a very useful database of ones' tobacco cellar and consumption.
