This is my first review. I have been smoking pipes for a few months, and cigars for a few years.

Features: - Fruity tin note - Easy to light and stay lit - Burns cleanly and completely

Cut is fine; leaves are a mixture of golden and cavendish. Tin note is fruity, mostly cherry, but this evens out on smoking into a smooth cavendish plus a bit of stewed fruit taste. I got more of the stewed fruit taste with a small 1/4-bent pot, than with a bigger fully bent billiard.

This tobacco is VERY easy to smoke. The tin was open for an hour or so beforehand (a friend shared this from a Denmark trip), and the moisture was just right. (Ambient humidity was 30-35%.) It took only a single match to light, and stayed lit with very little effort. The bowl burned cleanly down to ash, with no dottle. It also wasn't too hot. Relights (I took a break in the middle) were easy and didn't spoil the taste.

My friend brought this from a trip to Denmark. He has been smoking lightly aromatic blends since before I was born, and seemed to enjoy this one. I'm more into the natural Virginia taste, but this was a pleasant change for me. I would recommend this to folks with similar taste to my friend.

Pipe Used: Large fully bent billiard briar

Age When Smoked: New

Purchased From: Pipe shop somewhere in Copenhagen, Denmark
