Yikes. Sounds like a very unique body of smoke. Connoisseurs. Sounds amazing.

I have no idea how to smoke it, or whether or not I'm gonna be on my ass afterwards, but that description sounded so delicious I wanna try some!

Rich, heavy and full of dark and earthy flavours that you can't get in food or drink.
This is what I look for. Although some combinations with such tones can be great (DM Vanilla, coffee, roohafza)

I am grateful for the offer and i'll take you up on it since it certainly makes things easier for me and my state side chum. I suspect I should have it with about a week.

That is what I like to hear! It's time we liberate our selves from artificial flavours and start looking at what real tobacco has to offer. I got to see the jurak in question being made and that was very cool. I'll be writing up a bit about it soon. Also, I got to learn a bit about local smoking culture which is great and I have managed to secure the jurak and i'll have it a couple of days and i'll be shipping it out to the states shortly after that.

Hajo, I re-read your post. If it's true that you can get this stuff regularly supplied in the US, that would be beyond awesome!!!! My favorite of all the tobaccos that you sent was the Contentment. Is this anything like it?

No. As far as I can tell it's sold at very high prices in small quantities in a few Arab countries and in Turkey and not in India at all. Naturally most of it is consumed within about 100KM of where it's made. In India they have a great many many fine juraks but they are very different then Iranian, Turkic, or Arabic juraks.

I've got some news on the Iranian jurak front. Basically it will be shipped out within a couple of days (i'm in Iran now and on the way to Masouleh right now) so i'll be able to see it off personally. It should be state side within a couple of weeks. The other good news is that I got a good deal on this stuff so i'll end up keeping my own loses down to a couple of hundred bucks which means that my fellow HPers will be getting an exceptionally good deal. I intend to write up a bit about how this stuff is made as soon as I get a bit of time because it's really very interesting and it should give those who try it out a better understanding about what goes into making the stuff we enjoy. That stuff will be in a new thread.

This stuff is nothing like Contenement. In fact I don't think I can compare it to anything else i've had. It's that unique. I'll have some tasting notes up in a bit to give you an idea when I get a bit more time.

Apparently the family makes this stuff tells me that if the interest is high enough they will try to get small but regular shipments sent off to the U.S. (indierctly of course). Needless to say, small craft producers do face periodic distruptions and the U.S. is going out it's way to start a war with Iran so nothing is certain. Still, it's encouraging that a craft producer wants to sell in the states since in my experience they could care less about selling outside of the Middle East even when they have the ablity to do so.

I'm always happy to see quality artisan products get the respect they deserve and to see them reach the hands of those of us that are not able to experience them regularly. I hope that the family can find a beneficial way to export their products to the US without too much trouble and without cost being prohibitive.

I would love to get my hands on some of this stuff hajo. I have always been much more interested in traditional tobaccos but have never gotten the chance to try one of your delightful sounding tobaccos. Sounds very unique and interesting

I have very little experience with Lebanese products and the best one was made by a Yemeni ( look up the shisha nazi thread to see about that guy). But I am certainly open to trading with you.
