A mild black cavendish mixture of first class Virginias, as well as dark-fired burleys. This special top flavour gives a pleasant room atmosphere. Mild, light, sweetish in taste.

Perhaps fine cuban cigars have dulled my tastebuds or something because this one just seems to be........wrong.

Explain yourself, idiot.

O.k. This was nice on opening tin I swear it was. Great aroma, not particualry 'Danish' but semi-sweet with the majority of the strands jet black.

A wee bit dry out of the tin, but then typical Danish (like Davidoff's for example) can be. Light packing as usual and one of my favourite straight Holsger Dansk pipes.

Bit of a bugger to get going and doesn't hold the light particularly well (like some Danish belnds) but the taste I expected - isn't Danish.

Well not what I expect of a Danish blend anyway. Now maybe it's me, but this tastes flowery, chemically artificial almost, like the taste (many like and I don't) from Gawith's hideous Lakeland blends.

What a disappointment. I expected a layered caramel, soft, sweet taste not the sour almost tart sensations from this blend. Didn't care for it at all.

But I'm a mean old sod and HATE wasting any kind of tobacco. So if I continue to get the same flavour it will go to my discerning son who does like flowery blends. I shall try it again in a different pipe to see if that makes any difference. Sometimes it can do.

As to why it tastes like this I'm not sure. The other possibility is that I've been smoking cigars (very sweet King Edwards') and favouring plainer blends (yummy Laarsens in particular, no.7 ?) of late and these two have, as I said at the beginning of this review, have dulled the senses.

I will try this again, and maybe I've done this blend an injustice, but if it stays in florist city then my son willhave an extra Christmas tin.

BBB - Danish Mixture.

This is the first review of Danish Mixture for TR....no pressure!

The appearance and smell of the blend aren't much of a surprise for a Danish mixture: pretty much black in colour, with a slightly aromatic smell. As this has been in a sample pouch for a couple of weeks, I can't say a word regarding the tins moisture; all I know is mine's good!

The flavour from the smoke is, again, not too much of a surprise for a blend called Danish: Sweet with a touch of vanilla. I must confess though, most of the fruitiness avoids me; the only citrus I get are the subtleties from the Virginia's.

I like how thick the smoke can sometimes be from Danish blends; this is one of those: thick, cool, and creamy.

Nicotine........ again..... very Danish: it's really mild with N!

This is an okay blend: a superb starting point, a good evening smoke, or even a decent desert smoke. For me though, it just seems like 'one of many' for this type of blend.

Smewhat recommended.
