Grand Oriental: Yenidje Highlander pipe tobacco
- 50g Tin
Grand Oriental: Yenidje Highlander pipe tobaccoOriental tobacco cultivation began in the 1600's around the villages of Yenidje and Kirdzhall after Venetian and Genoese traders introduced tobacco smoking to the area in the 1500's. The classic Basma seed introduced there over 300 years ago is believed by some to derive from an ancient Venezuelan variety of Nicotiana Tabacum named Barinas. The very finest Xanthi still comes from the original Yenidje (Genesaia) area of Western Thrace just north of the modern town of Xanthi. It is the Xanthi-Yaka-Basma and the Xanthi-Djebel-Basma that comprise the legendary Yenidje leaf which is thin, full-bodied, flexible, wit fine veins. Full of oils, the best leaves are quite small, yellow to brown in color, with a pleasant, delicate aroma and sweet, mild, fresh flavor.
Taste these blends (Supreme without Latakia, Highlander with Latakia) and discover why this particular classic Xanthi (the Yenidje of old) with its refreshing sweetness is known as "The Queen of Tobaccos." Highlander is the one blend so far in this series using Latakia. It is a classic mixture of the finest mountain grown Yenidje with both Cyprian and Syrian Latakia and just enough Matured Red Virginia and mellow Maryland. This is a smooth, cool-smoking Oriental Mixture of outstanding Character. Our Inspiration was a vintage in the old Balkan Sobranie White.
Choose Grand Oriental Yenidje Highlander for a fresh, flavorful smoke everytime you light up.
