your sure to raise eyebrows from strangers and expect confrontation what your smoking lol. everything from the pack design, to the gold filter and black wrapper make this thing really stand out. Oh, even the taste and smell too. The taste, its catered toward russian/ easterners who really enjoy their tea i suppose as you really get a whiff of tea fragrance which i cant quiet pin-point down to. The tobacco seems slightly dark and smells very rich, the taste if i can recall correctly is a mix of dark chocolate (very faint) with a blend of tea (also somewhat faint, but noticeable especially if you retro-hale) topped with hearty rich tobacco. this is a must try IMO for any smokers

You won't be disappointed with Sobraines Black Russian cigarettes. A very classy and splendid cigarette to enjoy on any occasion and for those who enjoy a smooth rich taste. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy quality tobacco with a very distinct unique lovely taste with every draw back. A Beautifully presented box to match its contents.

The packaging and construction of these are second to none. You feel as though you are handling a pack intended for a select few - the sense of luxury is definitely there. Everything from the construction of the box, to the opening style, the gold foil wrapping - containing the story of Sobraine - all add to the experience.
The draw is consistent from puff to puff. The flavor, it is a difficult one to describe. There isn't your typical Virginian style taste or aroma, I could not detect any Asian based tobaccos either; also, no smokiness - as with Turkish/ Syrian blends. The flavor is a very subtle one, almost as though one needs to acquire a pallet for it, with time I believe the subtle nuances will begin to show.
Sobranie is a member of a select group of cigarettes, who's company includes the likes of Davidoff (Magnum/ Classic), George Karelias & Sons (Excellence), Dunhill (International), Tor & Treasurer. It is a welcome member.

I really wanted to like these but they were very weak and poorly constructed
