Very light and pleasing mixture. Short cut for easy filling.

Notes: In the middle of the fifties, German tobacconists took over the procedures customary in the USA to compensate for differences in taste between the various tobacco producers by adding artificial aromas. It was also possible to process inferior tobacco varieties, as the aromas guaranteed a uniform taste, which, as Karl-Heinrich Trennt had always said, had nothing to do with tobacco.

This development sparked horror in him, the connoisseur of pure tobacco. He began to mix tobacco varieties from various high-quality tobacco leaves of the classical English type. His father already did this when he developed the "Abu Riha" variety in 1928. In a series of attempts and constant review, the "TT 91" was created in 1961.

Inspired by the sales success, Karl-Heinrich Trennt created six more tobacco mixtures in the next years: 1962 the "Tobac" variety; 1963 the "TK 93", 1964 the Oriental mixture "TW 64"; 1970 to the 100th anniversary of the company the "Jubiläums-Mixture; 1975 the "Smök Mi" and in 1978 the "78".

In the Hamburg tobacco factory Walter Wehde, the natural tobacco varieties of the company Th. Trennt are still produced in unchanged formulations. Since the fifties, both companies have held an intensive, trusting and successful cooperation over decades, even after Mr. Wehde sold his company to the company Kohlhase & Kopp on January 1, 1987 in order to go to well-earned retirement.

I am not sure, when I first smoked this tobacco, but it must be closer to 20 years ago than to ten by now. My father mentioned it in briefly and I followed up by calling to Kiel - to Tabak Trennt. Over a brief conversation, Herr Trennt guided me through their selection of "Hausmarken" an suggested "Smök mi" for my tastes.

Since then I have called Kiel many times and our conversations got shorter and shorter:

"Moin Herr Trennt, zwei Ballen, bitte."

Shortly after, I will have two vaccume 250 g bales delivered, with a friendly sentence on the bill.

Much is to be said for familiarity and reliability - and here we come to the tobacco - which carries this.

Cut, moisture, mixture - have all been, as far as I remember, the same, from each batch.A fine mixture cut with very little dust. A clean, uncased Virginia and some Latakia added.

As advertised - a light blend. Pleasant indoors and stout enough for outdoors.

Out of step as it may seem - I get may "English" from a family company in Germany.
