One of your most beloved "childs", truly a delicacy. Gentle, sweet, tangy, with a fruity fresh room note. Broad, square cut, burning slow and cool.

It loves being smoked bigger/wider bowled pipes, so it can really shine.

Notes: Formerly known as "Seute Deern" (Sweet Girl), and due to EU regulations now known as "Lütte Deern" (Little Girl).

Mild Mild Medium to Full Pleasant

"Seute Deern" is Low German and means, "sweet girl." This 'baccy surely is that: a gentle, sweet companion.

The tin aroma is fruity, if anything, but I can also make out the VA with some grassiness in there. Not a typical aromatic, I'd say. The cut includes huge squares of VA and irregular bits of BC; the biggest bowls should be about right. Incongruously, if properly filled, a corn cob will do quite well, too, despite the diminutive volume. Small briars should not even be attempted, though.

A bright mixture with maybe 20 % Black Cavendish in there, this blend fills well in a wide bowl. Lighting is a little fussy, as the wide squares of tobacco tend to go every which way on first light until tamped down a couple of times. Once properly lit, though, this blend behaves highly civilisedly, needing little maintenance to enjoy; the occasional tamp-down will do nicely and, depending on the pipe, will leave little to no dottle.

The taste is dominated by VA with BC sweetness; the fruity topping somehow lingers in the background but does not define the taste. The room aroma is pleasant, though not spectacular; it keeps up the fruitiness of the topping until the last embers.

Despite the tobacco's mildness, the taste is relatively full: it is the equal of some much stronger blends and should be good enough even for a nicotine junkie as a take-a-break weed.

I can't believe it's been almost a decade since this was last reviewed!

Before I begin, it's important to mention that I always use a 9mm filter, either active charcoal or Meerschaum.

The tobacco: I'd call it a cross cut. Mostly bright and brown Virginias and some Black Cavendish. Looks delicious and packs easily.

The tin note: The first thing that came to my mind was a creamy fruit tea. It's not overwhelming or artificial in any way. There's a subtle sweetness, possibly from the Virginia, which gives the tobacco a nice, round aroma. For some reason it reminds me of a sweet liqueur, even though there's no alcoholic smell. All in all an excellent, mouth-watering tin note.

The taste: Mostly sweetness from both the Virginia and Black Cavendish. The topping/casing is always present but never overwhelming. It's sweet, creamy and slightly fruity (like fruit tea). This fruity flavour lasts for 70%-80% of the bowl, but my pipes are all small or medium sized. I recommend using a bigger bowl instead.

All in all, this is a great aromatic; not gooey or smudgy at all. It's affordable (7,95€ for a 50g tin) and beginner friendly. No tongue bite at all and the tobacco is of a good quality. The room note is very pleasant, the nic hit is mild to medium and it only needs a few relights.

I don't smoke many aromatics, but unless I find something much better, I will buy this one again. Definitely recommended!

I received a sample of this blend, of unknown age. Not so moist, not heavily cased (no sign of PEG). Burned down to a mottled ash, with a single light in a 1/2 bent Brigham. Comprised of fairly large chunks of what appear to be virginia and cavendish. Quite coarse compared to most other blends. Burned very cool, with a mild fruity taste. This is an aromatic, not cloying and easy to smoke. Created plumes of smoke. I find it has some essence of plums and a mild citrus (orange?) tang to it. As far as aromatics go, this one's a nice example of a German aromatic that hasn't gone off the deep end with excessive flavour. Worth getting a tin if you like tamed aromatics.
