Dan Tobacco Caro Mio

From danpipe.de Italy is always worth a trip. Not just because of the landscape, but also out of a desire for the joys of Mediterranean cuisine - especially the delicious desserts. So the idea arose to convert the sweet seduction of a "panna cotta" or "crème caramel" into this enchantingly velvety tobacco blend. Gentle Black Cavendish and a small amount of gold-colored Ready Rubbed Virginia Flake were refined with a tasty caramel-vanilla flavor. This is how my "Caramello" gets its creamy, fine toffee taste, which is retained until the last draw. Your Michael Apitz
Notes: Used to be known as Caramello back in the day

If I were to be marooned on a god-forlorn island on the edge of the world – this would be the tobacco I‘d happily puff away for the rest of my days.

Think of any caramel induced, slightly creamy vanilla‘d dessert, possibly Dulce de Leche or the likes. This is what’s emanating from the tin once ye pry it open. And as it comes to taste – this would be the blend where tin note does translate to taste quite closely.

Mainly BC and some ready-rubbed Virgina flaky bits spring to the eye.

Once loosely gravity filled and rounded off with some Frank style top packing and a subtle charring light applied ye‘ll be puffing away merrily to the bottom of the bowl with hardly a relight needed. Comes perfect straight from the tin. No need to aerate.

The caramel goodness will stay to nearly the last puff. Some minor tobaccoey notes will come through towards the end … strangely resulting in some Irish Cream Whiskey Liquor taste towards the end of the bowl. Slowly puffed through a 9mm filter, no tongue bite, no gurgling. I really like this one!

If ye have a bit of a sweet tooth like me, I‘d highly recommend this heavenly blend!
