A Danish mixture made from fine Virginia tobaccos mellow Burley and mild Black Cavendish. A mild naturally sweet mixture with a pleasant caramel/tofffee flavor and a pleasant room note. Easy to fill into the pipe, slow burning with a cool smoke.

It seems that this tobacco is not for the smoker, but for the ppl around him.

When I smoked this, many years ago, in a bar, the other patrons actually came up to me and asked whatever it was I smoked, it smelled so very good.

Unfortunatly there was no taste at all, just HOT smoke, never been bitten as bad as from this tobacco, like pouring boiling water into your mouth.

Bah, if prisoners of war had to smoke this, it would be a violation of the geneva convention!

I believe my fellow reviewer Eulenberg has this one completely nailed. Likewise, I believe he's figured out how the Danes spanked the British Isles.

Man, this stuff is horrible. I picked it up at the 2005 Kansas City Pipe Show. I really liked the gentleman who sold it to me. But now he's got some 'splainin' to do.

A mild and pleasant smoking tobacco. Some toffee, very similiar in smell to the W.Ø Larsen Old Fashioned, but without the toungebite I suffer from the latter. I like this aromatic for its pleasantness. It is just a good smoke, nothing special or great, but plain good.

It works great in the pipes I have tried it in, the Falcons are a given for aromatics, but the Club Mixture also performs flawless in the Dinky, a tiny, short stemmed pipe that gives nothing at the door when it comes to biting if the blend hides such tendencies.

Pipe Used: Falcon, Stanwell, Dinky and diverse

Age When Smoked: Fresh from shop

Similar Blends: W.Ø Larsen Old Fashioned.

I bought a pouch of this at a time when I was most likely out of my head with painkillers because of my then-recent slipped disc. Reminder to myself: don't order tobacco when you're bombed out of your head.

That aside, opening the pouch I smelled, mostly, caramel and toffee. The leaf is a mixed ribbon, mostly yellow to brown with VA, and some BC in there. The mixture seems to work best in my smaller bowls; unlike most aromatics, it actually burns down decently and does not leave much dottle.

There is certainly little nicotine in there, but at least the room note will allow me to smoke this in places where a cigarette or cigar smoker would be thrown out. That's a good property IMHO.

Not going to buy again. Those who like aromatics may want to try this; it's not entirely bad and is composed of quality tobaccos. For me... well, I'll finish the pouch, mostly in two of my corn cobs -- it does seem to work best in those pipes.

Having experienced the Golden Sliced, which I love, in January 2010 I found the Orlik Club in a shop in Bilbao. It includes Virginia, Burley and Black Cavendish. A composition which is very promising, but unluckily not meeting its standards. A blend that creates a lot of tonque bite in any way you might try to smoke it. No taste, no smell. After smoking 5-6 bowls with very good mood, I had to make a mixture with Essence of Vermont, and leave it for some time hopping that it will improve through aging. The only good thing is that it fills the bowl easily.

Another below average Danish Blend. The tobacco casing is somewhat raisins and licorice but not much flavour in this one.

Unfortunately I cannot find myself recommending this tobacco. I bought a packet of it and while the taste is not unpleasant, it is also nothing to write home about. Everytime I try to smoke a bowl of it I find myself quitting before the halfway point because of the bite that develops. Flavor can be a motivating factor and sometimes I find myself continuing to smoke a tobacco even it if has a bite because the flavor leads me on. Not in this case. The nicotine strength is also mild and so no advantage to be found there either.

Opening the packet revealed relatively high quality tobacco with a pleasant but not overly exciting aroma. It is ribbon cut and the moisture content was fine and it burned acceptably and I have not found any stems.

-------------------

Bottom Line: An Aromatic with an acceptable room note but nothing attractive enough in the taste to overcome the disadvantage of the tongue bite. A tobacco I would be happy to find if I was stranded on a desert island but which I will not ever go out of my way to buy again here in the real world where there are much better tobaccos available.

Not recommended at all. This is nearly tobacco. Hot, burning your tongue and where is the tobacco-taste ? Who asks for such things ?

To me this seems just like Orlik Mellow Blend, except this one is scented with a licorice/ vanilla flavor. I do enjoy scented blends on occasion, but this one was to sweet. On the positive side, it is very easy to pack and smoke

Sweet, innocuous Danish milksop, makes Golden Slices taste positively brutish. How DID these guys sack the British Isles silly? By scalding their tongues, I gather?

There seems to be two entries for this blend. One, with two reviews, says the flavoring is vanilla. This entry says caramel/toffee. What I'm smoking is clearly flavored with the latter so I'm posting this review here.

I noted all the reviews about how this burns hot and I saw when setting out a bowls worth to dry that among the ribbons were some broken flakes. In an attempt to make it burn cooler I didn't rub them out and left them intact. Not sure that made a lot of difference. It does burn hot except when taking short sips. Only then did I get a nice caramel-like flavor. Evidently the tobaccos used here are very mild in flavor as hardly any natural flavor comes through. I suppose that's by design.

I smoked this in both the MM Diplomat 5th Ave and the MM Morgan. I got the best results with the Morgan, which is a little nose-warmer. It provides about a 25 minute smoke. Although I got some pleasure from it I can only give this tobacco a 2 star rating due to it being a pain in the ass.

Mild in body and flavor. Burns well to say the least.
