For 30 years now, Hadde has been my friend. He is the communicator in our circle, and that alone demands that his signature tobacco be something special. Hadde loves aromatic blends, so for him I created a medium-strong Broken Flake. Light and medium brown Virginias from Africa, blended with a good measure of Louisiana Perique and Darkfired Kentucky. An elaborate casing of Irish character gives this blend its special character, always present but never drowning out the tobacco‘s superb quality. Hadde‘s Best Irish is a temptation for aroma lovers, and for fans of natural tobaccos looking to give themselves a treat.

Medium to Strong Medium to Strong Medium to Full Very Pleasant

This tobacco reminds me a lot of Sir William Special Blend with a very similar casing and overall fullness. But here Perique is easily discernable whereas in "Special Blend" it might, or might not, be present (the recipe is a secret). Anyway, on its own this is a very aromatic (predominantly almond flavour) but also a very full tobacco flavoured broken flake, a process that is favoured by its blender Hans Wiedemann and myself as well. Pressing the tobacco brings out the flavour of Virginia, Perique and Kentucky and marries them together. When lit, you are rewarded with a sweet, pungent smoke that is mild, easy on the tongue but one that packs a real punch. I find it immensely satisfying! Hans is a new force to be reckoned with and up there, if not above, the other established micro-blenders. Enjoy, Rob

Medium Medium Medium to Full Pleasant

The light and medium Virginias offer a little dark fruit and citrus along with a few blades of grass and some earth. The dark fired Kentucky adds some spice, wood, and a little nuttiness as a competitive, complimentary partner. The raisin, fig and spice aspects of the perique are mostly in the background. The rich almond and floral geranium toppings have some strength while the honey adds a smoothing sweetness. The toppings do sublimate the tobaccos to a mild to moderate extent. The nic-hit is mild to medium. The strength level is right at medium, while the taste level is a shade past that. Well blended and complex, it burns at a reasonable pace, cool, clean, and spicy smooth with a very consistent flavor. You’ll notice most every taste characteristic in every puff. I suggest a wide bowl for this product. Requires few relights, and leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl. Easily burns to ash. Has a pleasant after taste. Not quite an all day smoke, but it’s repeatable.
