Tasting properties of tobacco are one of the most important parameters that determine the quality of tobacco in smoking. Investigations of these properties were performed in 2009, 2010 and 2011 with one variety of Yaka tobacco (YK 7-4/2 Ø) and three varieties of the oriental type Basmak (MK-1, MB-2, MB-3). Tasting properties of tobacco varieties were evaluated by the Taste panel of Tobacco Institute – Prilep, composed of seven members, by the method of "anonymous tasting" according to the standards and the "Key for taste evaluation of oriental aromatic tobacco”. The aim of this paper was to make comparative investigation on tasting properties of some varieties of Basmak tobacco grown under same conditions and to mark all the differences among them. The best average results regarding the investigated properties were obtained in the variety MK-1 (68.39 points ). The Taste panel agreed that all investigated varieties show good tasting properties typical of oriental tobacco, but MB-2 and MB-3 are the most prominent among them. The investigations show that Basmak varieties, due to their good tasting characteristics, can be successfully grown in the Republic of Macedonia.
