This is a re-visit after I haven't smoked this blend for quite a while. I haven't bought this again as I had too much blends I wanted to try in the meanwhile, you may know this "problem" ;-) Yet now I regret not having bought it again...
Lovely cut.. there's Curlys from bright and dark-fired Virginias, ribbon-cut Burley, chunks of black, broken flakes, which contain the Perique I guess. A very mild honey-note was added, which is most certainly most natural, as Motzek only uses natural flavourings!
The aroma from the bag is versatile. Sweet honey notes with underlying spiciness and also some white pepper lurking. Hay and (wal-)nuts. All in all it's very tobacco-y, with only a minor, natural honey note to it. The cut is a pleasure to handle and various packing method are avilable (try smoking only the Curlys f.e!)
In the pipe it performs excellent! Nothing overly complex, but quite some aromas to explore. There's honey-sweet, hay-ish and earthy Virginia aroma, sweet and tart nuts, as well as wood and earth from the Burleys, a slight smokiness from the dark fired leaf, as well as white pepper that tingles your nostrils and tounge - but never bites! A synergetic composition of sweetness and spice. Some bready notes, and tart spice. Sometimes the smokiness get's a mild beefy undertone.
Definetly an All-Day-Smoke! I love a bowl of it in the morning. It gives me the right proportions of sweetness and slightly smoky, peppery spice. Has some strenght, but ain't strong. On the lower half of "medium", I'd say! The added honey flavouring is very mild and really just underscoring the Virginia sweetness. Definetly not an aromatic, not even what I'd consider a "Semi-Aromatic Blend", this is natural tobacco with a hint of honey.
A 4-star Va/Bur/Per blend with charme and character, surely a favorite of mine, that'll take a comfy seat in my tobacco-selection! Also an alternative for aromatic smokers, who want to lean towards natural tobaccos, as it's aromatic-sweet, yet full of rich tobacco aroma. Va/Per and Va/Bur/Per lovers will admire this enticing blend for sure!
