|Very nice Virginia and Black Cavendish. The topping is a little much for me though.The aromatic agent is coconut, and I'd rather taste that in a cake, not a pipe tobacco. Everytime I've smoked this in public I've had complements by women,-" My goodness you big sexy man,whatever are you smoking in that beautiful pipe,that smells so good"?
I'm happily married and no longer smoke this. One woman is enough.
|Tin Aroma: Highly aromatic, this blend has a very Danish smell to it. The typical Danish aromatic smells, to me, of fruit and sugar, but not in any identifiable mixture. Almost as if I were sniffing pure sucrose. The fruit aroma is vaguely reminiscent of mangos and pears, but I cannot really tell.
Physical Characteristics: A rough ribbon cut that looks as if it wants to be a fully rubbed iout flake, or perhaps there is rubbed out flake blended with ribbon cut black cavendish. Mostly blond and mottled, I expect a high sugar content here.
Notes: On first lighting this blend, I was expecting a full frontal assault of Fruit flavored steam, but much to my surpise, and pleasure, I tasted sugary virginia right from the first puff. The room note is amazingly pleasant, so much so that Jen said 'What are you smoking, that smells so good.' I let here have a taste, and we both marvelled at the difference between the full tobacco taste, and the fruity room note. In subsequent smokes, I have been able to detect a small amount of the flavoring in the actual tobacco, as opposed to the side stream smoke. The Virginias in this blend are solid, but not very 'deep' or multi-faceted. However, they light easily, and burn smoothly and evenly, leaving a dove-grey ash behind.
