A pleasant journey to the roots of pipe tobacco.

The pouch smell is that of pure tobacco leaf directly after the drying. It's not too subtle a scent even though there is no artificial taste added but it's also sweeter smelling than shag for cigarettes.

The fermented Black Cavendish is dark brown and makes up almost half the pouches tasty innards. Mostly bright colored you can still almost recognize the leaves. No nasty stems - just tasty tobacco.

In the smoke there's no noticable aroma added and if you're intrigued by the idea you won't be disappointed. Nuances of sweetness and cream vary just enough to stay interesting and make you keep chasing the next sip. Don't expect too much sweetness, though, it's very balanced out. Pure tobacco taste and a satisfying smoke, really.

I can't recommend this with four stars. But just because it won't rock your world or get you into pipe smoking. It's there to do it's job and you can't blame it for being too much or too little of something. It's positively just quality tobacco. I personally want to keep it around.

If you don't have the time to grow your own - this is your blend!

This is a surprisingly nice tobacco. Usually the Holger Danske line is heavily cased, but this is very natural. There is a Virginia sweetness and a haylike taste, but all in all, the flavors are very subtle. It is very easy on the tongue for a Virginia, but a few bowls are needed to explore the flavors, as the first few puffs could be bland, but it develops. Given the low price, it is a perfect Allday smoke and will be in my rotation.
