As with most other Von Eicken blends, I was not exactly overwhelmed with this one. I tried one pouch some time back and 20 years down the line, I think I can still feel the aftertaste of this blend.

The tobacco comes in tiny cubes of medium brown pressed leaves, and from the taste of it, I'd say it's pure, sugared Burley with some burley-based Cavendish. The pouch aroma was not too strong, with the typical cocoa note of Burley.

The tobacco was pretty hard to light and almost impossible to keep burning. Hard puffing kept it alive but also rewarded me with an increasing tarry taste and unbelievable amounts of condensation -- when I smoked this in a Falcon, I had to drain the bottom of the pipe several times.

Relighting even a few minutes after the pipe going out regularly got me the Taste of Tar in the most unadulterated form I have yet experienced.

IMHO, it's a good thing this stuff is no longer being offered. It's the sort of blend that could turn me off smoking.

Easy bite! So make it slow, or else you'll know the meaning of Knock.
