Opening the tin : the flakes are nicely wrapped, have a unusually fine structure and a deep brown colour speckled with orange and black. A fresh and sweet aroma meets you, reminding of virginia tobacco an citrus fruit.
Packing and first lighting : the tobacco falls apart in fragile ribbons and crumbs. It’s easy to pack and easy to light.
Smoking : this tobacco shouldn’t be packed tightly at all and needs little tamping, otherwise you won’t be able to finish the bowl without leaving a dottle. The bowl will not overheat. Relights are not needed.
Taste and smoke : the smoke is creamy and cool and there’s lots of it. I find it fun to take long, deep draws to create clouds of thick smoke as if I were smoking a cigar. The taste is not at all like that of a cigar, though. Fresh and gentle, almost unobtrusive, it leaves a light impression of something fruity or alcoholic on the palate. There’s no room note to speak of.
Advisable pipe size : Small, as the stuff burns very slowly, and narrow to make it glow instead of flare
Pipe Used: any pipe with a small and narrow bowl
Age When Smoked: new
Purchased From: Dan tobacco
