Default Yazdgird Jurak & Tobac Question

I got opportunity this afternoon to trade some Baja I have sitting around for some Jurak and Tombac made by the Yazdgrid brand. Having never heard of this stuff I wonder if anyone here has tried it or knows anything about it? I presume it's named for the Persian emperor so I am guessing it's Iranian but I am not sure the guy that has it doesn't seem to up on this stuff so I am in the dark. [FONT=Verdana]

I got some of this stuff in the mail today and I'm trying it out now. Basically it tastes like toasted Burley tobacco mixed with molasses, coffee and a bit of cinnamon. A very pleasant smoke that is less assertive then most Iranian jurak. A very nice product that is pretty unique.

I am so jealous of the different kinds of tobacco you can get Hajo!

I wish there was a reliable vendor (even outside the US) that could round up all this stuff and sell it online. I've experienced some great tobaccos with some trades, but it would still be nice to see all this stuff centralized with pictures and descriptions online...

Well the thing is that the more exotic stuff I get I get sporadically and I can't choose the flavours or the amounts. I just take what I can get. Basically what I do is give half of the exotic stuff to friends on the condition that that they give half of what give them to people (mainly HPers) that will appreciate trying something off the beaten path.

kingboyb, the reason that such a vendor does not and can not exist is the nature of the products. Most of the more exotic stuff I get is made by very small, family owned businesses that basically sell stuff out of a single cafe or their home to people that live within a few kilometers range. Typically these little firms make everything by hand, have just a few flavours and literally only make a few 100 kilos per month and often less. These little firms also can't afford modern packing equipment so they simply wrap the moassel or jurak up in wax papper and tie a string around it. Typically they don't even have labels but just a sticker with the brand name, flavour and how many days worth of smoke you can expect. Also the traditional stuff doesn't have any preservatives and it simply can't sit in wear houses and shipping containers for months.
