Limited Edition, ___/300

Notes: Released IPCPR 2018

This tobacco is hand blended from personally selected grades from the most reputed tobacco fields in the world. "We have used Virginia from Old Belt district, burley from Kentucky, Orientals from Greece, Turkey, and Cypress, and finally just a small amount of perique from the famous Louisiana district in the U.S.A." says Erik Stokkebye of 4th Generation Tobacconist.

Medium Mild to Medium Medium Very Pleasant

The nutty, woody, earthy, lightly cocoa-ish Kentucky burley takes a small lead over the other components at times. It gets fair competition from the floral, mildly dry and spicy, woody, earthy, Orientals, which, at its least, is a supporting player. The spicy, raisiny, plumy Louisiana perique is the third star in the mix by effect, and not by proportion. The grassy, citrusy Virginia ends up being more of a condiment. The honey and floral toppings have a little richness, and they accent/compliment the varietals as much as they tone them down, which they don't do that much. The wooden cedar box is very minor; just enough to notice. The strength and taste levels are medium. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool, clean and a slightly slow due to the cut of the tobacco being more of a broken flake. The sweet and lightly savory flavor is complex and fairly consistent from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs some relights. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste and room note. An all day smoke if you wish it to be.

Mild to Medium Mild Full Very Pleasant

I suspect this is all bought up. It should be.

Excellent tobacco - mild and friendly, nothing too weird or spicy, but it's bloody delicious. Sweet, a little woody (obvious notes from the Spanish cedar in the box), reasonably full bodied. Just excellent tasting tobacco with some fun nuances.

Buy it if you can and if this kind of thing seems fun to you.

Medium to Strong Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

This limited run comes in an attractive wooden "humidor," which I think may impart some wood notes to the smoke. Lovely floral/honey topping, that does show itself in the room note and on the palate. The flavor profile is fairly complex and changes slightly through the bowl. Wood, baking spice, nuts, citrus, sweetness, and creaminess. It's easy to light and smokes very well. Would highly recommend this blend, if you can still get your hands on some. I'm looking forward to Erik Stokkebye's next Blend of the Year release.

Mild Mild Medium Pleasant

Interesting presentation and packaging, it comes in a lovely cedar box which is not sealed but comes with a humidity control pack inside. The flakes are not pressed too hard so break apart fairly easily, only 10 min drying time was needed.

Excellent tobacco with a lot going on (too much for me to describe fully but others have covered it well) I personally have smoked nothing like it but woodsy and floral taste comes to mind which is not really what I expected from a burley blend. Wonderful tobacco!
