Hi everyone

As you may have noticed with my reviews, I'm very interested in flavors and aromas.

I'm wondering if it's possible to find the origins of the tobacco's leaves with the aromas.

I read that some leaves had specific aromas and flavors depending on their country (ex : Tobacco from Nicaragua is said to be very peppery). Some people are making "blind degustation" and they even try to guess the origin of the tobacco and even the brand.

I'm comparing this to wine and grape variety indeed.

Can you help me on this subject and maybe recommend me a good book (or website) which will sum up some "basic trend"?

I made some research but didn't find anything really helpful.

Thx a lot for your help :)

I think the best way would be to go to a place like "leaf only dot com" and get a rolling kit, and then buy different kinds of leaves and roll puro's of only that variety to get the flavor. To my understanding, thats what blenders do at the factory when picking what leaves they want to use for a blend. I can tell you some are more distinct then others, like once you know Dominican Olor, you can spot it dang near anywhere.
