I went to Bruges yesterday with wifey and friends. Popped into Jerry's Cigar Bar and decided to buy a tin of BC Semois tobacco. I have tried the Vincent Manil Semois and really enjoy it so thought I'd give the BC a try. I sat in the smoking area in the shop and cracked the tin. This stuff is really good. As it comes in a sealed tub (Manil comes in a paper packet) it was ready to go straight away. What a smoke. If you haven't had a chance to try Semois before, it is robust and for me has a rather old-school feel about it. The taste is full, and the nicotine content is satisfying. I believe it started as a Burley or Kentucky plant that has since evolved into its own species, now grown exclusively in Belgium. If you ever find yourself in Belgium, get some. The Semois growers also produce cigars and cigarillos of various sizes. Whilst they are a fair distance off being in the same league as the finest Cuban hand-rolled, the leaf lends itself very well to being smoked in a cigar. Right I'm off. Need to find out a way to move to Belgium.
