Racing Green is the newest in the Orlik series. The package claims that Racing Green has classic British elements. If they refer to the topping added, they are very wrong. Therefore i think they must mean "British" as in pure and clean tobacco. That is not entirely wrong, because the cavendish is very subdued and the topping only rears its head at the beginning of the bowl.

There is not much new here. A typical Danish semi-aromatic, but the topping has a twist: grapefruit in a very small measure. The blend is very reminiscent of Golden Slices, but is a tad more cool and flamboyant as in not monochromatic. It is an interesting blend for crossover fans, and I will recommend it for its well balanced qualities, compared to other blends in the same tier, and for its quality of leaf. Ask for it at danishpipeshop.com (it's not listed, but they carry it).

The immediate aromatic note from a freshly opened tin belies the depth of this tobacco. Slightly citrusy like Orlik gold yet a tad "deeper" and fruity like say Dunhill's Royal Yacht with an aroma of dried fruit but not as dark and heady; once burning and mid way into the bowl this tobacco shines. I purchased this knowing only of Orlik Gold, a surprisingly good quality tobacco for the price it sells for and I am very glad that I did. Racing Green has a bit more depth and flavour to Gold and heralds a smoke more deserving of your attention. I'm finding it better with each puff as it burns down to the bottom of the bowl. I'll be definitely adding this to my rotation.
