The 1982 Centennial blend celebrates our family’s 100-year anniversary in the tobacco business and I believe you will truly enjoy this mixture. The 1982 is a slow burning mixture, comprised of golden Virginias, sweet and soft mild black cavendish, light burleys and blended with small plugs of navy flake to ease the burning. French vanilla and black berry top dressing is added as a final step, creating an outstanding room note and a distinctive taste experience.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Very Mild Very Pleasant

When I recently ordered the complete line of 4th Generation blends this was the one I tried first. Mainly because I could not recall ever having smoked a true blackberry aromatic. For some reason, blends with fruit extract all seem similar to me and I have trouble telling the flavors apart - unlike my jams and preserves on my morning toast - anyway, I didn't taste the vanilla in this one but I did taste the fruit. Typically Danish in flavor and very remindful of a few of the Danish blends on the market today. Very light in strength, by the way.

I was really looking forward to trying this after enjoying 1957 so well. Unfortunately it just didn't live up to my own hype. I will finish this tin but will not purchase any more. It was just too flat on taste and never really opened up throughout the entire bowl. Big letdown; maybe try bumming a bowl from someone instead of buying a whole tin.

Update 1/4/15. After drying a little in the tin for a few weeks this has improved ever so slightly. The blackberry peeked through a little more but not much vanilla. Will be fair and move to 2 stars but will finish the tin and order no more.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Very Mild Pleasant

The Virginia is grassy, citrusy sweet. The burleys have a little nuttiness and molasses along with a mild toasty earth. The black cavendish may be unsweetened. It’s hard to tell because there’s some vanilla in the topping, but I notice very little vanilla while smoking this blend. The blackberry topping is mild. The tobaccos are muted by the toppings some. The nic-hit in very mild. It won’t bite. Burns at a moderate pace with a fairly cool smoothness, and a consistent flavor. Requires few relights. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl. While everything related to the taste is well integrated, a definite lack of body and depth works against it. A very comfortable all day smoke that somehow manages to be offer no more than a routine experience.

I rate this blend a 7 out of 10.

I ordered this blend to try for a couple of reasons, but the main one was simply because 1982 was the year I was born! I figured I ought to at least give it a try. :) Boy am I glad I did! I have only been a hobby pipe smoker for a couple of years and maybe it is just where I am at in my journey, but at this point mildly aromatic tobaccos seem to be my favorite. I have tried ALOT of heavy aromatics, several non-aromatics including some VAs, VApers, VA/latika blends, and even some of the more hardcore balkans like Black House. While I can appreciate the complexity of those english blends, I am not sure I am quite ready to abandon the candied aromas completely, thus the mildly aromatics such as this wonderful 1982 blend.

Opening the tin I smell the sweet blackberry flavor as well as the rich tobacco scent of the full bodied virginias that are incorporated into this blend. It smokes perfectly by my standards and last a long time with good flavor all the way through the bowl and a definitely present nicotine punch from the virginias. Overall this is one of my favorite tobaccos right now!

The rumour, down our way, is that 1982 is made from shredded chipboard. The flavour comes from the burning glue, known in the trade as glueberry.

Medium Mild Medium Pleasant

In France up to now I have found the "1897", the "1957" and this "1892". The "1957" is first class tobacco and deserves 4 stars. As for the "1897" I will give 3 stars to the "1982". In the tin the vanilla flavour is strong and opens expectations. It is a nice tobacco giving a nice smoke but nothing exceptional. The blackberry addition is not easy to notice...

Erik Stokkebye - 4th Generation 1982.

What an inimitable looking blend! There's all sizes of ribbon, blacks, browns, and golds, and even one or two actual flakes: bizarre! It smells strongly aromatic, and the moisture's smack on.

The smoke, to me, is quite strongly aromatic. The vanilla's subordinate to the blackberry, it can be identified, but struggles to compete with the sharp, slightly acidic, pungent, blackberry flavour. There's also a notable sweetness present, seems like honey. The tobaccos are of a decent weight with one another, giving a smattering of the standard 'heavy-aromatic' flavour, and plenty of a light-and-fresh quality. The heat can be different from bowl to bowl. It's dependant on the selection of cuts used to fill with: a cool smoke can easily be obtained by filling with the chunkier ribbons and flakes, but if the smaller shag-like cuts are used the heat can rise. I get absolutely no tongue bite from it.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: lovely.

1982: I bought it because I was born in that year, and it would make a perfectly indulgent birthday smoke for me! Highly recommended:

Four stars.

Mild to Medium Medium to Strong Medium to Full Pleasant

I liked the first tin of this I got better than the most recent. Maybe it was from aging in the tin.. maybe it was the batch? It still has a delicious blackberry topping with a great room note. Tobacco is a little stronger than in some and if you try to puff to hard you will get a little sting. When smoked slowly it offers a more full-bodied smoke than say a Lane aromatic and gives you a rich tobacco flavor in the mouth.. with a little berry on top. This one even though I think it smells great leaves a bit of a tobacco room note but still heavy with blackberry.

Wow, this is my first blackberry aromatic and I loved it. The quality of the tobacco is definitely top shelf. It smoked mild and clean like most Danish style blends. I can't say I tasted much other than tobacco, blackberry and a hint of honey. The tin aroma is intoxicating and the room note is complimentary to a quiet evening with the family. Like all of the Erik Stokkebye tobaccos it is made from super high quality ingredients and there is no drippy goopy mess left over when the bowl is empty.
