I have been smoking these special editions from Larsen since the 2009 edition. 2009, 2010 and 2011 were outstanding. 2012 was rather disappointing. This one stands in the middle! The whisky addition is noticeable when opening the tin and rather nice, reminding of X-mas pudding but not too strong. I have had about ten smokes of the blend and find it easy going, from the beginning to the end. Good balance between Virginia and burley with some bits of Cavendish: good point on that matter. That said, the aromatic taste is discreet and I failed to notice the hint of orange as adversised on the tin (just a small hint?. Those who like fully bodied aromatics may want something stronger but the blend may be recommended to smokers who want to have a try with an aromatic and will be happy to get it as a gift. One word about the design of the tin for those who will remind about previous special editions and notice the efforts from the brand on the designs. Last year's was rather lousy. Here we have a distinguished design with a dark yellow lid giving an idea of the whisky addition.
