Bought a 100g tin at one of my local tobacconists when I was searching for a light summer smoke. The tobacco mixture is rather bright and broad-cut. Its moisture level right out of the tin seems close to perfect, perhaps even close to a bit on the dry side. The tin aroma points at nearly or completely unflavored, although the description on the producer's homepage states a light whiskey & plum flavoring, while the tin description(german version) states nothing about top flavor but mentions that the mixture contained a pinch of latakia to round things off. The baccy is easy to stuff, lights really good and is no big deal to keep lit. Flavors remind me of a light to medium virginia Blend, with the Black Cavendish in the background and the Burley poking out its head here and there. The Latakia seems to be there only in a very small ammount, but I got throughout the whole bowl time and again a nice spicy undertone. As far as the top flavor goes, I got to state that imho W.O. Larsen did a fine job with this one. The plum & whiskey are both there, but very midly so and do not kill the tobacco's original taste. They rather spice up the blend and also give it a quite nice room note. Overall the blend tastes like a mix of VA, slightly sweet plum / citrus, smokey whiskey and malt with a spicy undertone. The baccy generates as good as no tongue bite or moisture and burns down to clean grey-white ash.
