“Tobacco-like, like hay or sweet tobacco”
Water flavour standard used to train professional water tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of tobacco-like character.
β-Cyclocitral is formed by Cyanobacteria in reservoirs or water distribution systems. It imparts an aromatic odour to water, reminiscent of hay or dry wood at low concentrations, becoming more tobacco-like and fruity at higher concentrations.
