HU - Tobacco - Originale Warehouseblend - English Breakfast
As opposed to an actual English breakfast, “English Breakfast“ is a rather light tobacco. Bright and Red Virginias Bright form its basis, along with oriental tobaccos. 20 percent Syrian Latakia give this blend its character without dominating it. The sweetness of the oriental tobaccos and the Virginias define the taste of “English Breakfast“. The Latakia stays in the background, giving this blend just a final touch. It is a tobacco for the early hours or for whenever you are looking for a good-natured, straightforward companion. “English Breakfast“ is also a good start into English blends. …Good day sunshine

I am smoking English Breakfast now as I write this review. The smell of this tobacco in the tin is wholly delicious with a (almost) naturally sweet and smoking wood aroma to it. It is more like a Danish type english than an England produced english, a more toasty- and sweetness that is usually associated with Danish blends. Whatever little aromatization is used is only there to underline the natural tobacco taste. I asked Hans, the blender about the black tobacco in this blend as it seemed a bit more than 20%(Latakia is the only advertised black tobacco) and he said it also contained some Black Virginia that adds a natural sweetness to this blend. Supported by Virginia and Orientals and of course Syrian Latakia, this coarse cut blend would make a delightfull introduction to the bliss that is an Danish like english blend! The taste and aroma will develop best in a not too narrow pipe. Hans is a new force to be reckoned with and up there, if not above, the other established micro-blenders. Enjoy, Rob
