Frequently Asked Questions: Spice

 
There is alot to say about touch. First, it is the physical sensation of feeling...

The most important and powerful aspect of touch, as it relates to tobacco, is spice: also known as pica or picante in Spanish. The Chinese and other Asian cultures consider spice a component of taste, but in the case of tobacco, spice is not relegated to the tongue. Spice triggers a physical sensation that varies from tingling to stinging on the mouth, back of the throat, palate, throughout our nasal passages and nose. The intensity and variety of spice will contribute immensely to the flavor (taste + smell) of cigars and pipe tobaccos. Ultimately, the balance of spice can determine whether a particular tobacco is smokeable, or not.
