Very Danish: sweet and mild. Virginia, Cavendish, Fire Cured and Oriental.

In the 80's and 90's this was a highly popular tobacco in The Danish Pipe Shop.

Mild to Medium Medium Medium Pleasant

The dark fruity, earthy Virginia forms the base of the blend. The Virginia cavendish offers some citrus, toast, a light grassiness, and a few drops of honey. The lightly woody, spicy, nutty, fire cured Kentucky is an important, ever present condiment. The dry floral, slightly buttery sweet Oriental just rises above being a background player. The fruit topping is enhanced by a little hazelnut,coffee and sugar. They do sublimate the tobaccos to a fair extent. The nic-hit is a step past mild. The strength level is just shy of being in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite, or get harsh, but it does sport the tongue tingly feeling that Danish aromatics often provide. Burns clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent, deep and rich sweet flavor from start to finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, long lingering, tingly, slightly syrupy after taste and room note. Not quite an all day smoke, but it’s repeatable. Three and a half stars.

I have smoked a few bowls of this mixture over the last few days prior to setting it aside to let it rest for awhile; it seems very "fresh".

This is a sweet and mild aromatic, the hazelnut is more subdued, the fruity note more prominent than the original.

If you miss the old Red Caledonian by A&C Petersen, this might bring back some happy memories.
