Blending tobacco is a true craft, which our blenders have mastered skillfully.
The colour, texture, smell and flavour of tobacco leaves are the determining factors for the final product. Flandria meticulously combines different personal blends, which is not at all easy. Each blend consists of fourteen to twenty different types of tobacco leaves that differ by type of plant, country of origin, drying process, harvest, etc.
As a result, blending various types of tobacco to create a homogenous product is work that can only be done by a committed and experienced master blender. Each blend is carefully assembled to ensure constant quality, a process that involves a long, intense procedure of smelling, feeling, tasting, adjusting and perfecting.
It takes great skill to create just the right blend while also ensuring that quality remains constant. The aromas of our blends are mainly determined by the natural characteristics of the tobacco we select.
