I am not sure, when I first smoked this tobacco, but it must be closer to 20 years ago than to ten by now. My father mentioned it in briefly and I followed up by calling to Kiel - to Tabak Trennt. Over a brief conversation, Herr Trennt guided me through their selection of "Hausmarken" an suggested "Smök mi" for my tastes.
Since then I have called Kiel many times and our conversations got shorter and shorter:
"Moin Herr Trennt, zwei Ballen, bitte."
Shortly after, I will have two vaccume 250 g bales delivered, with a friendly sentence on the bill.
Much is to be said for familiarity and reliability - and here we come to the tobacco - which carries this.
Cut, moisture, mixture - have all been, as far as I remember, the same, from each batch.A fine mixture cut with very little dust. A clean, uncased Virginia and some Latakia added.
As advertised - a light blend. Pleasant indoors and stout enough for outdoors.
Out of step as it may seem - I get may "English" from a family company in Germany.
