If you have ever heard the powerful boom of the BMW engines and seen the massive and yet majestic shape of a Ju52 (Auntie Ju) circling in the sunlight, surely you have felt an immediate fascination with this giant of the skies. Massive, powerful, majestic, yet playful and even a little naïve, but always impressive – this is how the “Ju 52“ blend, too, will present itself to you. Malty and slightly fruity tones give the powerful, dark pressed, medium-strong Virginia/Perique Broken Flake its character. A voluminous smoking experience in terms of taste, but without irksome weight. A gentle giant for dreams of the pioneering spirit of the past.

Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

As discussed below; gentle, even-burning, wonderful billowy clouds of smoke, and no bite at all. Lovely - slow and lumbering, just like Auntie Ju.

Hans is a pleasure to deal with.

An aromatic from Hans Wiedemann for those who, like myself, normally don't do aromatics. I say this because the base of this blend, a medium strong vaper ready rubbed together with some Kentucky could easily stand on its own, without any added flavouring. And this of course is the way it should be: make a fine tobacco blend, only then enhance it with an appropriate flavour. This is what Hans has done with JU 52 and it pays off handsomely: one gets all the tobacco flavour of the very fine tobacco ingredients with a subtle fruity topnote to turn it into an (semi?) aromatic. Smokes dry and cool, has a nice bite from Perique, body from the Virginia and Kentucky fired leaf and a very agreeable flavour from the mild casing. A delicious tobacco!

When I saw the name of this tobacco, I told myself that I absolutely had to try it! I think we've all seen pictures of this aircraft and the first things that come to mind are the airlift at Stalingrad, the invasion of Crete .. . Ju 52 is an excellent allday tobacco, it seems light, but it is not that much. it develops dense plumes of white smoke spiraling: really seems to be among the clouds. I'm not a big fan of aromatics, but I've never tasted anything like this:it has a certain body, a slight natural sweetness that is combined with a nutty flavor. Extremely pleasant,an easy smoke for the morning.I've loaded into the pipe with the Frank method and he was burned down without problems. An easy playful smoke and an easy buy!
