Opting for quality over quantity, La Volute represents only the 4th pipe tobacco blend ever to be released by Tabac Manil since its inception. Quite simply, La Volute is the pinnacle of pure, rustic pipe tobacco. Being a completely natural tobacco with no flavorings, subtle differences in the aging, blending, and cut can make for a unique smoking experience. La Volute is pure Semois leaf, like its cousin La Brumeuse, but cut to the consistency of a crumbled flake rather than ribbon-cut. The thicker cut serves to enhance and deepen the characteristic earthy, and floral notes, while also offering a different packing experience and longer smoke times. The Semois leaf’s “heavier" side also gets to shine through a bit more thanks to the thicker cut, with notes of toasted cedar and peaty scotch popping in and out. Yet another classic from Tabac Manil that is sure to get even better in the cellar.

Strength i STRENGTH: the overall strength of the tobacco. This includes the strength of its taste and its nicotine content.
Flavoring i FLAVORING: primarily for aromatic blends, this refers to the "topping" but sometimes also to the "casing" added to the tobacco. This will account for detectable flavors like cherry or chocolate.
Taste i TASTE: although a wholly subjective measure, it is one of the most important in that it measures how tasty smokers find the blend. Like food, some dishes are tastier than others.
Room Note i ROOM NOTE: a measure of the ambient scent/smell a blend puts out for those around the smoker. Basically, how strong does it smell, and how pleasant do those around you find that smell. The stronger, generally the less pleasant. You can also call this the "wife rating."
