Dan Tobacco Bulldog Medium Cut

The No. 1 in the BULLDOG series. A mixture of the best light gold Virginia, dark Virginia, deep brown Kentucky and a trace of latakia. Highly aromatic flake scraps according to Irish tradition, moderately added, give it a pleasing flavor, without falsifying the tobaccos' character. The relatively short cut ensures slow burning with cool smoke. Aromatic, spicy scent.

I bought this tin some month ago. The irish with latakia caught my attention.

Opening the tin, there is a strong aroma of berrys and somewhat almondy/ marzipan twist. Latakia adding a nice note. The tobacco is said to habe "Flake Scraps", but all I can detect is a even cut tobacco with a nice diversity of colors.

You can smoke it easily when fresh. Even if it is a bit moist, it with brun well.

At frist you get a big rush of berry aroma. Sourly-sweet. Just like a fresh opend jar of marmelade. Soapy notes slightly adding here. Towards the second third the aroma slowly vanished, giving the tobacco more room. Kentucky giving a fine earthyness. Still a strong sweet-sour note. More sour. Towards the end the aroma ist just in the back.

Overall a fine tobacco for people who like a fine fruity aromatic.

If I am to describe this blend in one sentence, it would be a German reinterpretation of an English Lakeland, and a good one for that matter. It is not your conventional aromatic, bearing a heavy chemical casing, but rather a va/bur (well Kentucky - but not a very deep cured one), with some latakia presence. As, I have found out, is the case for many aromatics having latakia, you can't really feel it in its conventional smoky presence, but rather balances things out. On top of it all you have a floral casing, which is quite beautifully used volume wise - not overwhelming so one can feel a tobacco flavor the entire smoking experience. If my comparison to a Lakeland is acceptable, I will add that it is not a strong one. It is perhaps a notch below a St Bruno if you will, both in strength and in flavoring. The nose of the tin is fruity, a bit flowery and with an obvious hint of anise or sweet wood/licorice. Taste wise the Virginia is very sweetish not hayish, which is enriched by the flowery casing, with a bit of spiciness from the Kentucky. The blend doesn't evolve much throughout the bowl, the licorice starts with you, but not overwhelming and most importantly lacking the minty element, but fades away towards the end of the bowl. The smoke is consistent with a flowery taste and a bit resembling a fruit rich in sugars here and there, but one needs to really look for the latter as it is not that obvious. I had no idea that such a gem hid in the Dan Tobacco portfolio. I highly enjoyed it, especially since I am not a fan of over the top candy casings for aromatics.

This is another great example of a floral scented tobacco. It’s reminiscent of HU’s Daddy Gefftl but this one has more of a licorice flavor to the sauce. This is everything I was hoping Mix 79 was going to be. I’m quite surprised it only has one review as of today’s date. This is not a blend I smoke often but every time I do, I think, “I oughta smoke this more often”. It’s potently flavored but the wonderful flavors of the natural tobacco come through as well, albeit, I don’t taste a lick of Lat (that’s fun to say!) and I imagine it’s added to cool the smoke and give it a bit more body. It’s mild to medium in body, mild in nic and the roomnote is very pleasing. I’m looking forward to trying the Flake in this series.

Great stuff and worth a try for those who like that floral, English vibe.

This blend is not about taste at all, it's about the smell and it's very pleasant.

Personally, I expect taste from any tobacco I smoke and this one is exceptionally indistinct and mild.

I do not recommend this tobacco; there are better ones.
