Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

excellent to go along with your morning coffee! sweet honey-ish fruity chocolate/vanilla. this tobacco refuses to go out even with minimal care. with this tobacco for me, the sweet tobaccos begins, less sweet/flavorfull is a more pure tobacco for me, even more sweet are the ' candystore sweet' wet dottle, no tonguebite no matter what you do, atleast for me, and especialy in the morning i can be a hasty puffer. smokable in all bowl sizes, although i perfer mid-size. the former pride of niemeyer as i once heared some one say.. recommended !

Here in the Netherlands this is a quite popular tobacco. People like it because it's sweet, but not overly, sickening, toothachingly sweet and because it's considered an easy, forgiving smoke here.

As someone in our Dutch pipesmokers forum stated it once: there's nothing exceptional or exciting about it, but it's a tobacco without any real cons, which in itself is an acomplishment already. For a cased mixture it burns quite easily, you really have to suck your pipe like a maniac to get some tongue bite and it has a pleasant, sweet aroma and room note.

Pipe Used: Chacom

Age When Smoked: pouch opened about three weeks

However I am not a great fan of aromatics, this tobacco is not bad when you want something totally different as usual. My wife likes the smell of it very much. It is indeed sweet but sometimes I like that. It does not bite at the tongue and at the end in the bowl only grey ashes is left. If you like the aromatics then this is a must-try.

A Highly recommended Pipe tobacco. Nothing special indeed, but perfect for a spring walk by the river.

This has been around a lot longer than any Borkum Riff offering. It is a typical Dutch Cavendish with the typical redolence of maraschin liqueur. Not a he-man taste, to be sure, but just as in certain giddy Summer days I like rock candy in my Dr Pepper (err...and some gin, as well) I'll get in the funny mood for this smoking charlotte russe, too. Variety, you know?

I certainly like this better than BLUE NOTE.

Very Mild Strong Mild to Medium Very Strong

Perhaps I am being unfair. I have tried this one only once. It is a strongly cased mixture, rather moist, with a pronounced flavor comprising dark chocolate, raspberries and some licorice. It not only is very aromatic, but the taste is equally sweet, almost sickly sweet. The tobacco comes partly in ribbon cut and partly in rough cut chunks, covering the light and dark brown as well as the black spectrum. IMO not very different from Sail Noir (also blended by TN).

I imagine that the casing agents are responsible for the difficulty in the lightening and smoking characteristics of the blend. However it does not burn hot. It is mild in terms of strength and, as with many Dutch blends, it tends to render the palate dry. Presumably this is TN?s answer to Borkum Riff?s Black Cavendish. Recommended only to die-hard aromatic smokers.
