Non aromatics use little or no flavorings. Typically these tobaccos smoke cleaner and offer a truer tobacco taste. This type of tobacco includes Matured Virginias. Virginia tobacco contains a higher sugar content than Burley tobacco and thus provides a naturally sweet flavor. With Matured Virginias the tobacco is pressed into 'cakes' and allowed to mature for a time creating the dark color and bringing out the sugar content. Stoved Virginias are further 'cooked' creating an almost black color and creating a spicy taste to the tobacco. These tobaccos often come in a 'flake' form (slices of tobacco) or in a rough cut (large broken flakes) which require them to be rubbed out into smaller pieces for easy loading in the pipe.
Other non-aromatic tobacco types include English blends and Orientals. Oriental tobaccos come primarily from the Black Sea region. These are smooth mellow tasting tobaccos with a bit of spice and a woodsy flavor. English blends typically consist of Oriental tobacco and Virginias with a little Latakia tobacco included. Latakia tobacco comes from Cyprus and Syria and is processed by cooking the tobacco over a smoky fire which adds the distinctive Latakia smokiness and spice. One sniff of the tobacco will readily reveal Latakia.
