If you like the rule of three, you’ll appreciate that tobaccos can be aromatic, non-aromatic or English blend.

Aromatic tobaccos have casings, or flavors, added during the manufacturing process. Some common casings are maple, chocolate, vanilla, rum, apple and cherry. Depending on the amount of casing used, one of these blends can also be deemed semi-aromatic or lightly aromatic.

Non-aromatic tobaccos rely solely on the natural ingredients of the tobacco for flavors and aroma. Frequently, to increase sweetness, the tobacco is specially aged or fermented.

English blend refers to English tobaccos that, up until 1986, didn’t allow additives. Today an English blend is any containing Oriental tobaccos. The most common consist of Latakia, Virginia and Perique tobaccos (more on those in a bit). The overall strength of the blend—mild-, medium- or full-bodied—depends on how much Latakia is mixed in.
