HU Tobacco Dark Sea

The "Dark Sea" Navy Blend is based on ready rubbed Virginia, Kentucky, Burley, Perique and a touch of Latakia. The blend is seasoned with rum and an anise aroma. The tobacco taste is in the foreground, whereby the aromatization always speaks out discreetly and gives the blend its maritime touch. This blend showcases the sailor's life during the journey's beautiful moments in the passing, saturates and exudes pure 'joie de vivre' with a pipe in hand. So pack a bowl and head out for adventure!

Dark Sea is a veritable maritime vessel of smoke. The Virginias constitute the ribs of the ship, Burley comprises the deck with smoky traces of Kentucky, Latakia makes the keel, Perique attached to the bow as a rudder, and the cargo hold contains the barrels of rum and baskets of anise seed releasing their aroma throughout the craft. The Virginias hold this blend together with an overlay of woody Burley and smoky Kentucky. Amongst the stormy seas appears an anise flavour which harmonizes wonderfully with the Latakia. That delicious liquorice note envelops the herbaceous flavours like sea foam on a wave. As a subtle addition, helping steer this ship to pleasant harbours, is a touch of sweet and spice from the combination of rum and Perique. This blend offers peace and relaxation amongst the seemingly chaotic assortment of ingredients. Dark Sea is masterfully balanced, tobacco-forward, and aromatic as a highlight to the primary flavours that accentuates them instead of overpowering. Hans Wiedemann is the captain of this ship, let him chart your course to a still ocean where the stirring of the waves reflects the ochre hues of sunset, exhale your worries away — 4/4.
