A mixture with a base of Old Belt Virginia, Tennessee burley and Orientals. These have been slowly fermented into a perfect black cavendish. A mild aroma of vanilla, chocolate and walnuts.

(A very velvety black cavendish from Old Belt Virginia and Tennessee burley makes the base of this loose cut mixture. Virginia tobaccos from Africa and U.S.A. and broad-cut bright Virginia of Brazilian origin combined with fine aromas of walnut and vanilla offer a tasting experience of a deeper, finely sweet note.)

Mild Mild Very Mild Pleasant

Larsen's Simply Unique is a decent expression of the classical Danish approach to aromatics—a light hand with the top dressing supported by a mild yet recognizable tobacco flavor. The tobacco looks nice—mostly a thinnish ribbon cut of black and gold Cavendish with some brighter yellow Virginia leaf. The nose is quite forward with a milk chocolate or ‘chocolate box' quality. Moisture level is high enough that it needs a good 20-30 minutes drying time.

It's less intense on the palate than on the nose, and tends to a mild chocolate flavor with perhaps a slight nutty quality. There doesn't seem to be much nicotine. It's a pleasant enough smoke, I suppose, but it also strikes me as very forgettable. Smoking characteristics are ok and the flavor is ok if you concentrate, but to me, this just didn't offer enough to make it interesting.

This is a very nicely done mild aromatic. Not goopy, burns rather cool, has a sweet taste but you know you're smoking tobacco instead of you grandma's peach cobbler.

For those who enjoy very mild aromatic blends, this is a quality compilation that tosses in a variety of true tobacco flavors as well as the extras.

Very pleasant room note. It's very diffrent from cheaper tobacco I used to smoke. It's nice even for people that don't smoke. Taste is nice, but the flavour wasn't strong evnough for me. Leaves no bad taste or "burned" tounge. Ignites nicely, even though I'm no master in this art.

When buying, I thought it was a non-aromatic. Only after opening the pouch it was obvious that I was dealing with some stout casing. The nose is wonderful, mostly dominated by chocolate and some bitterness, perhaps walnut. Smokes best after a 20 min dry-out. Simply Unique among aromatics is top notch when it comes to the taste, but what really pleases me is the room aroma. It doesn't bite and glows cool, even if you suck on it hard. Good for a sweet, desserty smoke. Quality aromatic!

This Larsen offering is a mild and yet satisfying Aromatic: it's unsurprisingly sweet but not cloying, nutty and creamy (even the pouch has now a cream colour instead of the former black), it smokes smooth and quite cool leaving a good mouth feel, definitely it has all good things one can ask to an Aro. Regarding room aroma, well, it seems that someone has lit up a Lampe Berger near you.

Simply Unique has proven to be one of my favorite any time any day smokes. It is not too strong, has a very pleasant room smell, and is more complex in taste than most aromatics due to the unique mixture of tobaccos. Never too hot and instantly satisfies.

Probably the weakest of the excellent Larsen's range I've encounted so far.

That's assuming I have the right pouch. My pouch is blue and just says 'unique'. I am therefore asuming that either the pouch has been updated since the stock picture was uploaded or I have got the wrong tobacco.

Either way, as I said, this is a pretty mild almost flavourless mixture. The strands are dark black/brown with an occasional blonde fleck. It's also dry, even straight out of the pouch, and is a bugger to keep lit.

Having said that I have a strong liking for Larsen's tobacco range overall and this blend certainly has the Larsen's Danish characteristics if not taste. But certainly from the pouch I have there's very little to mark it out as anything special.

The most positive thing in it's favour is the price. When you compare it to one of BBB's expensive blends this is a third of the price. And I for one, couldn't tell the difference.

I've been smoking a lot of aromatics in the last 30 years, but this one is really "unique". Initially I wasn't very impressed, but it quickly grew on me; the taste of this tobacco is very complex: the initial nuttiness becomes more and more a full and round aroma, to which greatly contribute the orientals. In conclusion, not an heavily topped aromatic, but a well balanced blend, in which you can taste the tobacco under the topping, and that could satisfy, as a change of pace, even who don't usually smoke aros. Higly recommended!

I can smell walnut aroma from the pouch. Sweet! I found walnut+vanilla note is dominant, with mild chocolate hint. Nutty and slightly creamy. This blend is quite sour (not sure, maybe because of my old pipe). Such a well-mixed aromatic blend, simply unique, like its name. Smokes cool and almost no bite. Great aftertaste.

I bought some pouches and use them as my daily tobacco because it's tasty and unforgettable. It's such a good blend though it's not very amazing. 3 stars for this blend.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

A very nice subtle aromatic. While not particularly complex, it offers more depth than many similarly priced over the counter blends. The nose is outstanding and probably justifies the "simply unique" moniker. The initial aroma is of almonds and chocolate, which develop into light walnut-like undertone. Smokes without any surprises and stays reasonably even through the bowl. Highly recommended as an all-day smoke to be kept in rotation if you like continental aromatics.

Very Mild Medium Mild Pleasant

Elegant black pouch with golden letters, this is a nice, easy going, mild smoke, on the sweet side of things. The Orientals are barely noticeable, whereas the Burley and the Cavendish are very much in evidence. A slightly floral-honey like flavor, in that great Danish aromatic tradition, rounds things up (if only the guys at Lakeland used these flavor agents in their Grousemoore thing!!! ).

Nothing to get excited about, Simply Unique is a mixture that, without being all that unique, it presents all the fine qualities of Larsen's tobaccos: beautiful leaf, perfect moisture level, easy to light, and if smoked at a proper pace it won't burn your tongue (fast puffers beware!). A nice indoor tobacco, polite, suited for the beginner and very mild.

Ok, I smoked only a couple of bowls of this so don't take my word, but this seems like a close cousin of Amphora Black, only it's slightly better. You can certainly find a lot worse in the world of aromatics: at least this one doesn't leave your pipe full of gunk and is actually quite plasant and tasty.
