Name/No.: 319
Cut: Wild
Strength: 5
Photo: Available
Ingredients: Unknown (but possibly: Virginias, Black Cavendish, and/or Burley).
My Comment: What a wonderful pouch aroma! It's sweet, and yet not overwhelming so. I could spend hours admiring the incredible array of color: From bright yellow, through green, red and brown, all the way to jet black. The cuts are also a nice blend of long and short, thin and wide. Like the rest of Schürch's flavored tobaccos, the tobaccos used are of extremely high quality, and the flavor is not meant to hide or obscure the natural taste of the tobacco; it is evident also in the fact that you smoke and enjoy it till the very last shred of tobacco. I find it a bit salty, spicy, and of course, sweet. It's also amazingly consistent throughout. The room aroma is due to bring you endless compliments.

Name/No.: 320
Cut: Medium
Strength: 5
Photo: Available
Ingredients: Several Virginias sweet Black Cavendish.
My Comment: This is the very first flavored mixture Hans ever made. It became an immediate success and so, led to more flavored tobaccos. The top vanilla flavor is 100% natural (nothing chemical whatsoever). It'll be a revelation to those who are used to mixtures artifically flavored with vanilla.

My Comment: A 100% natural "lemon" flavor that comes through very discretely right upon lighting and settles in very well. Taste is so consistent till the very last shred of tobacco.

Name/No.: 363
Cut: Wild
Strength: 4
Photo: Available
Ingredients: Several Virginias, RR Flake, Burley and sweet Black Cavendish.
My Comment: This is one of Schürch's best selling flavored tobacco. It's the most heavily flavored mixture Hans makes. Besides vanilla, it has an intriguing taste and aroma of "cloves". If you're into more pronounced flavors, this mixture is for you.

Name/No.: 366
Cut: Wild
Strength: 5
Photo: Available
Ingredients: Unknown (possibly several Virginias and flavored Black Cavendish, as well as rubbed out flavored flakes).
My Comment: This is a truly beautiful mixture to look at: A wide range of colors (from very bright to jet black) and cuts (including rubbed out flakes and Black Cavendish). The pouch aroma tells you that this is not a lightly flavored mixture; it smells of fruit and molasses. It's very easy to pack and light, and it burns very regularly and effortlessly. The taste is very pleasant, with a combination of sweet and sour, but it is the former that is dominant. The room aroma is very, very pleasant, with a touch of nuttiness and fruitiness. Due to the wild cut, it is an ideal tobacco to smoke on a windy day outdoors. What is impressive is how consistent the taste and aroma are till the very bottom of the bowl! If you like Rubino, you're bound to enjoy this one.

Name/No.: Virginia BC
Cut: Mainly Fine
Strength: 3-4
Photo: Available
Ingredients: Four Virginias (from Zimbabwe, Argentina, India, & Eastern Europe)and flavored Black Cavendish.
My Comment: This is the least flavored in this category. I therefore recommend it to those who: (1) smoke flavored tobaccos and would like to move towards natural ones, and (2) those who smoke natural tobaccos (with or without Latakia) and would like to have an occasional sweet tobacco that is not heavily flavored.
