Benzyl alcohol, β-phenylethyl alcohol and methyl alcohol were isolated and identified as free alcohols from the Neutral fraction of the essential oil of the aged Japanese Flue Cured Tobacco Leaf. On the other hand, benzyl acetate and β-phenylethyl acetate were both isolated each in the ester form and identified, respectively. Besides these esters, the presence of methyl laurate, methyl myristate and methyl palmitate were also confirmed in their ester form. All these compounds, except methyl alcohol, were newly isolated and identified compounds from tobacco plant and they seemed to be responsible for the aroma and taste of excellent Virginia tobacco leaf.
