A blend of aged Burley, and a touch of red Virginia. Giving a cool smoke and a dark nutty aftertaste.

I think this is a misunderstood tobacco. It brings noting new - oh really? It has been on the shelves at all tobacco sellers in Denmark since the 1940s, so no wonder that it brings noting new. What it brings to the table is pure, honest tobacco, without any add-ons, plug-ins, bells and whistles.

Rubbed out, it packs easy and takes light on the first match, after which it can be smoked quit cool and slow to the bottom of the bowel. The first 1/2 to 2/3 of the bowel is off semi sweet Virginia, as the smoke progresses the taste becomes a bit darker, the taste of burly becomes more dominant without taking over. This is not a complex or complicated tobacco - it is just tobacco.

The room note is that of burning tobacco, not everybody like it and if you do not, you may what to search for something else, like incense Sticks or scented candles.

This tobacco works really well as a base for blending. My all day, everyday smoke is about 2/3 Everton and 1/3 Mac Baren mixture Scottish blend. In practise it usually goes like this; 5x38g pouches of Everton and 1x100g tin of Mac Baren mixture Scottish blend, rubbed out and blended in a big bowl, then stuffed in a jar. Has all the attributes of a good all day smoke and I have smoked it in strong winds, without any issue or tongue bite.

One of the most generic and bland tobaccos I've ever tasted. Well I think this could do good for beginning pipesmokers, transitioning from cigarettes or cigars. If you do like the taste of burley, and you need that nicotine, this could do the trick.

I find both taste and aroma more of an "old mens tobacco", and I really can't say anything good about it. Oh yes, it does make your clothes reek of cheap cigars...but I guess that's not a good thing.

This blend says that it consists of more burley than virginia. I don't think that is a fact. Opening the pouch and smelling this weed, it reminds me of a stout "working-class"-version of Golden Sliced without that tea-like flavour.

There's not much to it actually; a plain (not bland) everyday smoke. Good for outdoor use. It doesn't bite at all and it provides medium nicotine.

It's nice, but it doesn't ring my bells......

This cut plug is available in a flake version, there is no difference except for the cut.
