A select combination of 1 mm broad, long fibrous Burley and Kentucky and 3 mm broad, canary yellow Virginia. By this composition a tobacco was created, which is burning down more evenly and slowly, also the tobacco obtained into smaller bowls of a pipe. Pleasantly mild and easy.

A unspectacular looking mixture. My sample baggie was really full, due to the light weight of the ribbons. Dominated by medium-brown ribbons, and speckled with bright-yellow and very few black ribbons.

Dipping my nose into the sample baggie I get a unconspiciuous scent. Very tobacco-y, little spice, and most certainly a whiff of a casing or topping of some sort. What makes me sure is this "slightly danish" undertone in the odor. Honey-ish, sweetish, but not obtrusive and hardly to notice this seems to be a rather natural tobacco.

Packing is a breeze, like with any ribbon cut mixture.

First light did hit me with a very tobacco-y, intensly nutty and slightly earthy aroma. After tamping, and making the "true light" a simple, yet natural and delightful aroma is building up. The earthiness intensifies just a bit, and settles for an mild earthy tone that's underscoring the very tobacco-y and rich nutty aroma of the Burley and Kentucky leafs. The Virginia sports slight citrusy-sweetness to round any rough edges. There's also a very mild honey-ish sweetness, which may come from a casing, but it really just enhances the natural sweetness, without seeming artificial at all. By times I also get some chocolaty notes out of it.

A very pleasant, uncomplicated and most all-day-suitable smoke! The strenght is pretty tamed in comparison with other Burley-/Kentucky-forward blends, which makes it very digestible. Not the most complex, nor the most sophisticated blend, but a solid-as-rock, no-nonsense, and natural pipe tobacco blend, that will appeal to any Burley and Kentucky leaf lover and fans of natural mixtures.

Easily 3/4 stars, I don't "have to have" a tin asap, but I certainly would pick up a tin of it by times.
