Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

Purchased in bulk form, this is a flavorful and reasonably well-balanced blend of Orientals, Burleys and Virginias. The blend displays a rather distinct Oriental character, but the Burley and Virginia elements supply ample richness and flavor. I admire the mellow qualities of this blend and it is certainly no heavy-weight. It should work quite well for both the newcomer and more seasoned pipe smokers alike.

This blend is quite similar to Newminster Oriental Pipe Cut, but Burley is added to the #80 Norway blend to replace some of the Virginias in Newminster Oriental #84. #80 is more rounded, mellow and smoother overall than #84--it just works better.

This is a VALUE priced blend (about $2 an ounce in bulk) and it is certainly worth that price.

Pipe Used: Stanwell Billiard Sport (Golfer)

Similar Blends: Newminster Oriental Pipe Cut (#84).

I've been looking for a mellow, smooth, all day type of smoke. Norway seems to fit the bill. For some reason aros scorch my mouth. I like the strong stuff, night-cap, ropes, coins, etc. But they are not a anytime, all day type of experience. Norway could be stronger, but it is a grab it and go. Doesn't take a lot of deciding. My wife even likes the room note. I may try blending in a little strength, but I'm glad I found it.

Pipe Used: Old wire-brushed briar

Age When Smoked: Hard to tell, pretty dry, I'm adding moisture

Purchased From: Pipes and Cigars

Similar Blends: Similar to other orientals, but a little more mellow..

Very nice balance of burley & oriental. Burns well, not much relighting required. No bite, quite smooth. Medium in the vitamin N department. Giving it a 3 bcs to me, a 4 has to really move me, which this didn't.

Pipe Used: Clay

Age When Smoked: 2 months

Purchased From: P&C

Mild Very Mild Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

Nice Oriental-laced flavor with a gentle sweet edge and some nut-like tobacco tastes. It would probably make a good transition blend for a former cigarette smoker, although there is enough here to hold the inveterate pipester's interest. Probably better when used as an all day smoke than as the focus of a special moment with your pipe.

Pipe Used: Ser Jacopo Picta Van Gogh hawkbill

Age When Smoked: 67. Oh, the tobacco! About 2 yrs :)

Similar Blends: If you like Prince Albert, you'll like this -- altho this is much tastier and more complex.
