One of my standby Vapers

Boker Or is a loose, square cut blend of tobacco -- perhaps you would call it a very short cut ribbon. It has a gently sweet and plummy Vaper base with a well conceived blend of velvety black Cavendish, and what I think is Izmir (or Smyrna ) -- musty and muted.
Put it one small step to the sweet side of the line dividing sweet from savory -- though the latter taste component is definitely detectable. It has great overall balance: good body or depth of character; rich flavor, without fatiguing the palate; and moderate strength, being satisfying but not overly robust.
In brief these three characteristics: body, flavor and strength work together for a smooth and tasty smoke. It has good smoke volume and mouth feel. The Oriental is used with restraint, working its magic to perfection, and producing an enduring, pleasantly sweet/musty finish. I enjoy smoking this in a larger diameter bowl to let the blend sing at full volume. No worries about burn, bite, gurgle or dottle.
