Princeton is somewhat a blend that lives its life in the shadows here in Denmark. It has ben around for ages, but is only sold in selected kiosks and tobacconists. Even though it is produced by Orlik (S-T Group) and only available in Denmark, this might be the next one they'll pull off the shelves I gather.
That, my friends, would certainly be a shame! Even though considered as a drug store blend, this is quite awesome stuff!
If you've tried Porter House from Orlik, this could be considered its stouter big brother. Dark and tobaccoish VAs with toasted Burley and unsweetened Cavendish (burley base) makes this blend the ideal crossover from aromatics.
It is considered as an aromatic, but I would not call it that. It is a rich rustic semi-sweet blend with lots of nic, lots of thick round tobacco flavour, and it packs well and is very easy to keep lit.
I imagine that this little beauty is the closest thing you can get to how these blends did taste when grandpa was young.
