    Has anyone ever smoked a tobacco that smells/tastes like this? I'm thinking late spring in the Maine woods. I've heard about so many different types of tobacco I figured I'd just ask folks that have probably smoked just about everything. Thank you in advance.

    When I think of earthy tasting tobacco I am thinking dark fired Kentucky. If you equate new leaves with sweet then you'd be looking at Virginias, grassy and sweet are both things i think of with different Virginias. Dead rotting moss covered logs I can't help you with. Perique brings a fermented flavor to the party but I don't think of dead rotting logs when I think of perique.

    I am snuffing NTSU Black and this thread title sort of describes it perfectly!

    I thought Squadron leader smelled like yard leaves burning when you first light it.
    Maybe some of the Hobbit/LOTR tobacco's smell that way
    Shortcut to Mushrooms might be one. have not tried mine yet.

    Thats the description a lot of blenders give some of there blends. Add latakia for the campfire. I'm looking for that same description and add damp musty graveyard to it. It's actually some blend I remember from way back in late 60's or 70.

    I have heard Just for Him's "Shortcut to Mushrooms" described as earthy. I tried it but it wasn't my thing. It is a sort of aro meets latakia. I am not big on aros but love lat blends.

    Tried it and found too much of a BCA taste. Couldn't even taste the lat.

    If the description gets any thicker, I'm just voting for peat moss in a bowl..

    Funny how everyone has a different take on this - I read the title and said "No brainer, Penzance".

    Penzance is closest to the au natural thing for me, too. And in terms of nasal snuff it would be F&T Santo Domingo.

    I may have a different idea of what you mean; That description fits Mac Baren's Old Dark Fired imo. That or some GLP Triple play with some age on it. Just typing about it makes me want to smoke that stuff.

    I get that scent from Kendal Kentucky in the jar. It doesn't cross over to the roomnote, though.

    My first thoughts also. Have the Penzance with me at work today, hoping for a noon bowl. Light a campfire in the deep early spring woods and your very close.

    I'm glad that there are some blends that fit my description, it gives me some direction for my quest.

    A fresh batch of C&D's Pirate Kake tends to have that damp, musty character like the ashes of a campfire the morning after and the Oriental leaf has some of the sweet spice of fall leaves although the blend that reminds me the most of dry leaves and hay is Orlik Golden Sliced.
