A black cavendish tobacco blend with spicy US burley and selected Virginias. The tobacco flavour is fully developed during a special fermentation period. With added top flavors of vanilla and orange to enrich the mixture.

This is, however danish it may be, a very pleasant mildly aromatic tobacco which I found pleasant for everyday smoking.

Holger Danske - Vanilla & Orange.

A retyped early review.

Starting with the best feature, the unlit aroma: candy shop. Burley and Virginia account for far more than the black Cavendish.

The smoke seems anomalous to the pre-light aroma. I detected vanilla in the aroma but can't in the smoke: I only get orange. Being fair, this flavour's alright, what ruins it is the temperature: hot. However, because the burn's so raucous it means there's no dottle left come the end! Ghost? Yes: smoke this in a dedicated pipe or cob.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Sadly this only deserves one star:

Not recommended.

Medium Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

Another typical Danish, supposedly, vanilla/fruit blend.

It's as dry as our sons toothbrush, and comes in a pouch rather useless pouch that might have something to do with the aridity of said tobacco. On transferring to a tin it seemed they had been very generous with the contents, seemed more like 100g than 50g.

It looks like most of the others in this Holske range - black and brown with a few lumpy bits here and there.

Smells really quite fresh and tasty in the pouch with a trace of vanilla.

Orange ?

Nope don't get that at all.

As we all know opening tin/pouch fragrance/taste come through in the smoke about once in a blue moon and this one is no different, although , to be fair, it does try.

Vanilla - very faint. Orange ? Even fainter, actually non-existent.

It's harsh - again like a lot of Danish tobaccos - and it doesn't take too many prisoners when it comes to heat of bowl. Could bite hard if pushed I think.

Mrs RW has made no comment on room aroma - it seems to have passed the house test.

In conclusion, a typically stolid Danish blend not very different to the others. Recommended ? No not really unless of course you are a Danish fan and working throught the range.
