This is a natural, fine Virginia and Oriental tobaccos blend. Well balanced, they mature in old english flake pipe tobacco presses. The Classic One is cut in ready-rubbed form, ready to smoke. This pipe tobacco has a soft, pleasant taste.

Well, I like this blend, and I think it is quite under-rated! I don't detect neither Burley nor Cavendish, it is just very good Virginia with a touch of Oriental, nicely aged. The smell from the tin is promising, like dark bread you get only in Germany, and in the bowl it keeps this promise. I was a bit disappointed by the packaging of the 100 g tin - in the tin I found a bag that was sealed just with a small sticker, so get it fresh when you want to smoke it!

The Bentley reviewed by the reviewer below is no more. The recipe has been changed as has the tin, which is now just flat. For reviewing purposes I decided to give both versions a try. I'll start with the new version as this is the one I tried first. According to the tin description, the blend now consists of Virginia and Orientals with a hint of Black Cavendish. The cut is that of a rubbed out flake with some loose leaf. During my first smoke I thought: "This is remarkably unremarkable". Not especially boring, just nothing special in the taste. Then I started noticing a perfumey taste wafting in and out and I did not find this wholly disagreeable. Underneath there is a solid, but mild tobacco taste.

On to the old version, my first impressions on smelling its contents was one of a slight coconut flavour, but very sparingly applied. This is a Virginia Burley blend in a rubbed out flake form, in fact very similar to the new version in appearance, perhaps slightly coarser. The smoke itself is not so very different from the new version, here the coconut wafts in and out and the Burley gives it a smoother taste. In all two tasty enough tobacco's if you like a straight smoke with no condimentals like Latakia or Perique.

This blend is associated with the high end pipes of this same name designed by Nielsen who also hand makes the Former line . The packaging reflects this with a rounded, fliptop tin with a sealed, foil bag insert. The blend has been pressed and then rubbed out. The tin aroma, taste and room aroma is just tobacco without any flavorings. A cool, clean and mild smoke without any hint of a bite. Just too expensive for an all or every day smoke.
