Was watching a cigarette review channel and the brand was Golden Bat, a very old Japanese brand that has been discontinued last year due to tax increases.I believe it was one of the cheapest brands, according to wikipedia because of the use of low grade tobacco collected from the manufacturing of other brands.It has been described as having an earthy taste.Not sure exactly what an earthy taste is.Is it common in cigarette tobaccos, or mostly a characteristic of low grade tobacco ?

Earthy taste is a more cigar like taste. It is basically a darker deeper taste which is quiet hard to explain. I like it and it is definitfly not a low grade taste.

Think of it more like good cigar tobacco which has grown on good soil and has now the good deep soul of the ground in its leave.
Its a little bit like the smell of dark cocoa.
