A long-cut English mixture. In spite of a share of 40% Latakia she unfolds a subtle sweet, spicy character and a surprisingly mild flavor. The No.7 develop at best in medium-sized pipe bowls, waiting for their slow burn-through with a pleasant, cool smoke. An all day smoke for those who enjoy a fuller English mixture.

I was just recently gifted an older tin (at least 10-15 years of age), of Torben Danske #7. I read in the descriptive above where this blend is comprised of 40% Latakia. As expected, the Latakia leaf breakdown was substantial after so much aging and it was not strong at all, allowing the sweet, aged, and mellow Virginia element to really shine. The Virginia leaf employed when tinned must have been spectacular in quality and I want more of it! I would certainly have enjoyed this more without the wafting of the remnant Latakia flavor, but I still enjoyed it greatly.
If you have an opportunity to try an old tin of Torben Danske #7, don't let that opportunity pass you by.
