50 grams of well balanced mixture with the finest Virginia tobaccos from Africa, USA and Brazil. A rare natural combination with a pinch of Oriental and black cavendish tobaccos.

Paul Olsen - Christmas 2015.

When I opened the sealed bag that contains the tobacco the first thing to jump out at me was a creamy/vanilla-esc aroma. Surprising as there's no toppings of any sort listed on either this, or the Danish Pipe Shop's site.

This is okay when filling, it just requires a touch of precision as some of the strands are quite long so need tucking into the bowl. Once the pipe's filled it's easy peasy to light up and gives a good burn.

At first I detect no topping of any kind, but after a short amount of time I start to ascertain the same vanilla creaminess I got from the tin note. It's not strong or heavy but it's easily detected.

The tobacco flavour comes through in an interesting fashion. The Black Cavendish and Oriental's meld together very well giving a somewhat different sweet and sour effect. This flavour does seem to have overtaken the Virginia's grassy/hay tones by a fair amount.

The nicotine, I would say is about mild. An enjoyable amount for me.

The room note lacks a lot of character. By no means is it offensive, it's just boring.

From my point of view this is a solid three star blend: no bite, cool burning and decent taste.

Recommended.
