What does earth taste like in a tobacco?

I've seen this in numerous reviews, tobacco tastes earth like! I've never had the privilege to taste earth.

What does it mean when a tobacco taste like earth? I can only imagine it's like tasting sand/gravel/composs which can't be nice Twisted Evil

If you ever want to taste/smell what I would refer to as "earthy" and if you don't mind a little snuff in your diet, head over to Mr Snuff and grab a tin of Fribourg & Treyer's High Dry Toast. It literally smells like the crawl space of a raised foundation home. This is what I would refer to as an "earthy tobacco flavor."

As for pipe tobacco, the simple flavor of a hearty burley has always struck me as somewhat dirt or soil like in flavor (but in a good way). Many Nicaraguan cigars strike my senses in the same fashion (especially Padrons), as does Semois which to me also has a vegetal, manure and hay like aroma which I would classify as barnyard like.

Ever used your teeth to hold a baseball mitt while removing your jacket as a kid? Bet you have. And you'd remember what that was like.

Imagine a blend with hints of green painted lead sinkers,  a whiff of old leather gloves and well worn army boots, faint florals like grannies panties, woodsy reminders of shavings from old toilet seats and a far-off but destinct smell of tobacco.

Would y'all be happier with something like " it tastes the way earth/leather smells?" For me the two senses are so intertwined when smoking that I don't know for certain which I'm using. This is especially true on the retrohale. As an example, there is a flavor/smell that I find prominent in 3Nuns that I can only describe as varnished wood. I don't know if its helpful to use that term trying to explain my sensory experience to you. In fact I'm not even sure it is possible to explain it. But it is a way for me to capture my own subjective experience. So I keep the varnished wood to myself and just say its good.
Mike.

The closest thing to an "earthy taste" is smoking a Cuban cigar.. I haven't found this taste in any pipe tobacco I've smoked.

If you've ever tilled a garden in the spring to get it ready for planting and tilled in good clean compost, planted then raked smooth, you may have an idea. At least that is how I think of it.

In my line of geotechnical work, to see the make-up and strata/conglomerate of certain specimen rocks, I have licked plenty. Fortunately, flavor is not a scientifically-recognized category I can put into reports. Perhaps if I went the other direction and found out which tobaccos they tasted like and why, I could change all of that and revolutionize the mining and exploration industry. EARTH 710492

That would give new meaning to "pay dirt", wouldn't it!?

Ya know when I say "Earthiness" I mean it's a flavor without sweetness and just a basic tobacco taste maybe a bit on the heavy side but, just saying a "tobacco taste" I think leaves a lot to the imagination seeing there are many different tastes of tobacco. So it's just a way of conveying that it's not sweet, it's earthy, that doesn't mean it tastes like dirt. 5)
Although I remember trying a few bowls of Union Square and it did taste like dirt to me.
Now you say, "How do you know what dirt tastes like?" Well if you've ever played Mumbley-peg (that's a knife game) when you were a child and lost, you'd know wouldn't you? EARTH Cheesy16

I think that's one of the hard things about deciphering tobacco reviews. The adjectives simply point at a flavor profile that you either get or you don't. A lot of times I can Monday quarterback a review and say "yeah, I can see what he meant by plummy, or earthy." But just reading a review is pretty much useless for me most of the time. Knowing the various component tobaccos in a blend usually is more helpful to me.

If you think about trying to explain what an orange tastes like to someone who has never seen one. Well, it's the same thing.

Earthy to me would imply: simple and devoid of any strong flavor enhancements. Dry. Most C&D offerings would make me think "earthy". Especially their Burley blends.

There are many tobaccos some wouldn't smoke just off the tin smell alone. Black Irish Twist is one that also happens to smell like a bag of steer manure and tastes little better. My favorite daily smoke is C&D Bayou Morning. It tastes outstanding to me but when I get a whiff of the tobacco in the tin it smells a little barnyard to me. Glad I went off of the ingredients of the blend or I wouldn't have tried it. As I said earlier about earthy, I love a freshly tilled garden in the spring ready to grow a good crop. One of life's simple pleasures.

Have to agree, there's just no better smell then a damp pasture or freshly mowed hay in the morning.
And I get a manure smell from a tin Germain's Brown Flake but, you can be sure it tastes much different, just heavenly. Wink
