Notes: A predominantly light brown, rather short cut loose cut of golden Virginia and cocoa brown burley with a hint of black cavendish, refined with aromas of cream and caramel; quite gentle in the taste with a fine redolence.

Beats me why anybody would want to call their tobacco blend Seaweed. Sure, there are some odd names about (rather like ales) but I mean, Seaweed ?

What does that conjure up eh ? That soggy stuff you used to find on a Bognor beach when you were kids. Yuck.

Unlike the salty experience you'd be expecting this is basically a Danish with a few top coats of caramel and cream. The tin aroma is outstandingly sweet with an almost sickly fruity aspect covered in toffee. Toffee apple perhaps ? Well, not quite, more bazooka bubblegum with a twist of peach or pear.

The tobacco itself looks great as well. Light and dark browns that require oiking out with a knife or pipe tool as it's quite moist and compact.

But it's a Danish at the end of the day, albeit with some very pleasant aromatic qualities. It certainly isn't as crisp as say a Larson's mixture (like Belle Epoque or Green and Indigo) nor does it have quite the strength or taste of Davidoff's expensive Danish blend, but would make a reasonable alternative, given the price.

The smoke is hard work, although it IS quality tobacco in here , not rubbish, and it goes out a lot, probably due to the moisture level in the tin. Drying out would make a good pot-porri bowl in the lounge.

There's no tongue-bite, but then I can't see too many smokers actually getting to the end of the bowl. The taste stays, to lessening degrees, throughout the smoke and gives a quality burn with only a slight aftertaste.

It's a fair blend, oddly named, and somewhere near the top in the Danish stakes.
