This mixture contains 80% double-fermented African and South American black cavendish and 20% bright Virginia from Brazil. The natural sweetness is enhanced by the addition of Sambuca and real licorice.

I was curious to try this tobacco, as I enjoy aromatics which are not fruity. Upon opening the pouch, a pleasantly sweet aroma can be detected, though it is not overpowering. The moisture content is just right, and this can be smoked right out of the pouch. The cut makes for easy packing, and the mixture lights up on 2 matches.
The flavor was pleasant and somewhat exotic. While I have smoked a number of tobaccos that had hints of licorice, I had never had one with actual licorice in it. This tobacco has an interesting taste, pleasantly intriguing, more spicy than sweet. The room note is pleasing, typically Danish.
This mixture smokes cool with no tongue bite nor "tobacco juice" and doesn't leave a sodden dottle as some other aromatics tend to. Blue Sambuca is a nice change of pace, something different, but I will not be adding it to my regular rotation. I would recommend this tobacco for intermediate smokers of aromatics who are looking for something unique.
