The McConnells Oriental Turkish is a mild yet aromatic tobacco blend produced from a small leafed variety of tobacco found in Turkey, which is renowned for it's unique aromatic character. This unique aromatic flavour has a less dense, slightly sharper edge than other tobacco's due to being sun cured, which also helps keep the tobacco mild. This makes it an ideal companion to rich tobacco's to reduce density, increase the burn rate and add Aroma.
