The third offering in Sutliff’s limited-edition Birds of a Feather line, a signature series crafted by master blender Per Jensen, Aberrant is a complex and robust mixture emboldened by Brazilian Rustica tobacco. A sister plant to Nicotiana tobacco the Caribbean leaf from which all modern Virginias, Burleys, Orientals, and other varietals originate the plant is a historic species of tobacco native to the Americas, and is renowned for its hearty strength and earthy, spicy character.
Aberrant’s Rustica is balanced by a selection of fine Red, Bright, and stoved Virginias, tempering the leaf’s strong, piquant profile with natural sweetness and tang, while a gentle portion of Dark-Fired Kentucky adds just a hint of mesquite-like smoke. The resulting amalgam is an impressively full smoking mixture with a surprising sweetness and complexity.
