Description
 
An homage to the famed French cigarette of old; Poilu was fashioned after the original "darker" and more full-flavored tobaccos used in Gauloises circa early 1900s; until that is, when American-style cigarette tobacco and their reliance on predominantly Virginia varietals by and large altered the landscape of commercially-available cigarettes, even in Europe, by the mid-Twentieth century.

Heavier utilization of Oriental tobaccos of the varying locales associated with the Ottoman Empire (Syria, Cyprus, Greece), which include both the traditionally sun-cured Turkish varieties as well as the further processed post-curing which results in a Latakia "type" were prominent in Euro-cigs like Gauloises, especially in those early years leading up to and for several decades post-WWI.

Keep in mind that Poilu and the other French cig eLiquids created at N-E-T are modeled after cigarette tobaccos, as an English or Balkan pipe tobacco will have significantly heavier use of Latakia. But this does make for one much more full-bodied "analog" vape while still remaining smooth enough to not cross into Latakia-laden pipe blends.
