Default Contentment Samples

I wanted to give everyone here a quick word or two about a really top notch Iranian jurak i'll be getting in soon. The brand is called contentment ( رضايت
in Farsi) and it's amazing stuff. I'd go so far as to say it's as good as al-Buturī Hamāsah or even Zenith. Rich, heavy and complicated with lots of spice/herbal tones. Anyway my pal in the states got some from his contacts and he'll be giving out something like 5-10 samples (not sure exactly now) of two different blends. Those of you that are interested in getting some need to fire off a note to me when I post the delivery info as you'll be in for a real treat. Anyone that wants some back ground on this stuff just ask as I met a part owner of the brand about 7 years back.

I recal reading awhile back that contentment was popular in Lebanon.I'm assuming it's the same product.

I would love to try something like this. Tell us how it goes and hopefully I can get in on it! I've never tried these kinds of tobaccos.

Basically jurak is thicker, stickier and stronger then ma'sel. It doesn't use any glycerine and it gets it's flavours from the huge ranges of tobaccos used in the blends, honey/molasses and what ever herbal/spice oils are infused into the mix. The heat management is a bit more work then normal but it's not a tough product to get to smoke well. In any case, because it's strong and has a very complicated flavour profile it's very different from typical fruity/candy style products on the American market. Chances are that if you love stuff like SB you won't like an old fashioned product like Contentment.

I'll get up some more info about the brand when I have the chance. Also, when my pal gets the shipment i'll know exactly how many samples can be sent out. So anyone interested in this sort of product need to keep an eye on this thread.

Hajo, I just want to say .. THANKS! for sharing these incredible tobaccos with Members, that is very generous of you ... much appreciated! Especially since we can't find these tobaccos anywhere in the US. It is a real treat to get to try them .. I remember when I had the Al Buturī and it was so nice!

I like the idea of getting a little bit of joy out and a about and since I have the good fortune to have people feed me such great stuff it seems like a good idea. Basically I got into the old fashioned stuff the same way.

Contentment is cured like a lot of Iranian products in that the leaves ferment in piles in a manner kind of like cigar filler. Later they are cut and packed in drums and aged with the herbal oils before the molasses is added although I am not sure how they do that. The end result is that it takes something like 4 months before the jurak is ready to be packed. It's packed the traditional way with wax paper and string which means you have to get it fairly fresh for it to be good.

Alright guys here is the update. I got my portion of the Contentment stuff and it's two different blends: شاهنامه which translates into Shāhnāma and دق ق which = Daqiqi. They smell amazing and are black and sticky. I think this is some of the best stuff around and is very complicated and flavourful. My American bud says that he'll have his portion out of customs some time during the up coming week. Anyhow, the way it will work is that he'll have enough to give out 10 samples provided that those interested are willing to pay postage via paypal. I'm guessing the postage to people in the states will run about 2 bucks.

Anyone interested IM me your name and mailing address and i'll forward it my stateside friend who'll mail it out and send everyone his paypal info.

Alright guys, good news. My buddy in New Mexico says he got the jurak out of customs. It was overly dry (he knows more about Jurak then I do) and so he added some molasses to it (Turkish molasses as you can't get the Iranian stuff easily) and now it's at the right consistency.

Everyone that requested samples will be getting a PM with the info to make the paypal payment to cover shipping costs (I think it will be 2-3 bucks) so keep an eye out for that.

Beyond that I had a chance to try try my share of the samples and all I can say is that it's mind blowingly good. Extremely rich with a tone of flavours from coffe, a sorts of tobaccos, cinnamon, honey, molasses, vanilla, something I can't put my finger on and a bunch of floral/herbal notes. One of the most complicated and subtle smokes on the planet. If G-d is a merciful and as caring as I have been led to believe mountains of this stuff will be found in the after life.

You should set this up as you would a normal mu'essel although it works best in a funnel with mod setup or a super chief. Once you get it smoking decently cut back on the heat as you don't want to risk losing any of the delicate flavours. Also note that this stuff doesn't have any preservatives so you can't let it sit around for ever like modern products.

Alright folks I have good news and I have bad news. The bad news is that far more people wanted samples then my American friend and I could provide. The good news is that Adam and I agreed to double the amount of people getting samples by cutting the amounts sent out to everyone by half so basically everyone will get 2 50gram samples. The good new is that the second batch of Contentment got through customs and the samples have been broken down and labeled for 20 people. The flavours everyone will get are Shāhnāma = شاهنامه and Daqiqi = دق ق . More good news is that I've tried both and they are mind blowingly fantastic, some of the best i've ever had. The packages will be mailed out starting tomorrow.
