The Crater Mixture No.5 is a true classic. Sweet Virginia tobaccos are pressed with spicy Kentucky and nutty burley. The result is a classical flake.

Mild to Medium Medium Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The woody, earthy, spicy, nutty sweet Kentucky burley takes the lead here, and also sports a touch of floral. The light and dark Virginias provide a mild, tangy dark fruit, a bit of citrus, some earth and grass, along with a little wood. The rich licorice topping is much more obvious than the molasses, which is in the background. Both tone down the tobaccos to a fair extent. The strength almost reaches the mark medium, while the taste does hit that level. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, but there a hint of a rough edge once in a while. The flakes easily break apart to suit your packing preference. Burns cool, clean, and a tad slow with a mostly consistent, sweet, mildly spicy and savory flavor from start to finish. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and requires some relights. The pleasant after taste does linger a mite. Can be an all day smoke for the experienced smoker.

Like all HU tobacco , this one as well made from high quality leaves. Very similar to Orlik dark strong Kentucky. Nice cool smoke, no chance of bite, leaving some moisture at the end. Personally for me not an all day smoke, and not for people whos like fuller flavor tobacco. Recommended.

This is copy of the well known Dark Strong Kentucky. One of my favourite blends. Everytime I don´t know what to smoke I grab this tin. Nice strong taste, sweet and smoky with a little licorice/plum flavour in the backround.
