Very good smoking tobacco. Good character, not to strong blended with the Trinidad Rum flavour. Very cool smoking. easy to fill (because of the handrubbed flake parts). I've got it in the 100 gram thin, so it was good to store more than 1 month while smoking.

Intro: Well- there are good and really bad blend from Borkum Riff... Its a really classy Brand, well renowend in switzerland and other european countries. The last time i smoked BR Bourbon Whiskey it was terrible. Gasstation Tobacco. But I was drunken and full satisfied from single malt, I decided to buy a tin of Borkum Riff Limited Edition 2013, No 11 Trinidad Rum. Tin: Opening the tin, a flush of fruitiness and rum notes hit your nose. Bright golden and orange virginias meet dark an elegant black cavendish. Well blended. 1st third: two matches are needed, almost three to char the surface. Then, fine fruity and boozy aromas walk your throat. I had terrible tongue bite while smoking BR Bourbon Whiskey, but this time its very pleasant. You can enjoy a full flavour smoke who's covering your mouth and throat, remembering your last holidays in Aruba or Curaçao or the Philippines. The rum. 2nd third: After the Rum said goodbye, there are still the VA's and Cavendish. The Mango also had to go- unfortunately. But with the two ingredients left, you might also have fun. They are, like mostly, two good friends- with fruity hints- at least. Last third: There its always fruity- whoohoo! But the more and more flat in taste and boring. While watchin' the same flat tv show 'the bachelor' its ok ;-). Résumé: Ok. Well. Its a good baccy! 100 grams are much, but for 25.50CHF / Swiss Francs its ok. Allday Smoke trough and trough. As a english lover, i like this aromatic. Ground solid. Give it a try! Sincerely yours, Emanuel P. Freudiger
