|"Seute Deern" is Low German and means, "sweet girl." This 'baccy surely is that: a gentle, sweet companion.
The tin aroma is fruity, if anything, but I can also make out the VA with some grassiness in there. Not a typical aromatic, I'd say. The cut includes huge squares of VA and irregular bits of BC; the biggest bowls should be about right. Incongruously, if properly filled, a corn cob will do quite well, too, despite the diminutive volume. Small briars should not even be attempted, though.
A bright mixture with maybe 20 % Black Cavendish in there, this blend fills well in a wide bowl. Lighting is a little fussy, as the wide squares of tobacco tend to go every which way on first light until tamped down a couple of times. Once properly lit, though, this blend behaves highly civilisedly, needing little maintenance to enjoy; the occasional tamp-down will do nicely and, depending on the pipe, will leave little to no dottle.
The taste is dominated by VA with BC sweetness; the fruity topping somehow lingers in the background but does not define the taste. The room aroma is pleasant, though not spectacular; it keeps up the fruitiness of the topping until the last embers.
Despite the tobacco's mildness, the taste is relatively full: it is the equal of some much stronger blends and should be good enough even for a nicotine junkie as a take-a-break weed.
|I received a sample of this blend, of unknown age. Not so moist, not heavily cased (no sign of PEG). Burned down to a mottled ash, with a single light in a 1/2 bent Brigham. Comprised of fairly large chunks of what appear to be virginia and cavendish. Quite coarse compared to most other blends. Burned very cool, with a mild fruity taste. This is an aromatic, not cloying and easy to smoke. Created plumes of smoke. I find it has some essence of plums and a mild citrus (orange?) tang to it. As far as aromatics go, this one's a nice example of a German aromatic that hasn't gone off the deep end with excessive flavour. Worth getting a tin if you like tamed aromatics.
