Dan Tobacco Sweet Georgia Brown

Taken from the catalogue: "This blend follows American tradition and is composed from golden Virginia leaf, best American burley and sweet matured black cavendish. A fine gentle flavour is added and blends perfectly with the tobacco's natural sweetness. A delicious mixture with smooth and cool smoke and a very pleasant scent in the air. Best in medium or larger bowls."

Average aromatic blend. Quite cheap, not too sweet, not to dry. You won't feel candy stream on your tongue and also it won't bite him. Sounds great, so what's wrong with it? Why not 4/4 stars? Sweet Georgia Brown is defintely not a masterpiece, this is more a good background to mix it with "S": something stronger/sweeter/more spicy - depends what you like. If not, you will get instead quite not bad daily tobacco, where 'not bad' means 'lower than good, but better than bad'. That's why Sweet Georgia gets 2 stars.

PS: Listen to Sweet Georgia Brown with my favourite jazz pianoplayer Peter Beets!

Sweet Georgia Brown smoked in a small or regular pipe is dull in taste and scorching your tongue. It is only in very large bowls (and even considering the use of a filter) that it begins to shine. Easy handling, no bite then and I had some good bowls accompanied by unsweetened coffee.

You’ll get a very broad cut mix of Burley, VA and BC, mildly cased with some kind of sugar, maple syrup, maybe vanilla/honey type of flavor. No cumarin was used, since this is prohibited by German law, however, I guess they tried to imitate something like that. High Burley content is supposed to give it an American touch as well, but it is processed in the European way, which turns it into …well, cardboard. Don’t get me wrong: The tobaccos used are of good quality IMO, just not very American as far as my limited expertise goes.

So, what’s left then? Given the mentioned premises, it is similar but slightly better than (the European version of) Lane Ltd. Rum & Maple and also very inexpensive. DTM’s Sweet Vanilla Honey Dew and Holmer Knudsen Pipe Tobacco are a better choice and if you were on a budget I’d rather recommend the underrated No Name (White) series. Most Sutliff aromatics deliver what’s been trying to achieve here.

I purchased a tin of Sweet Georgia Brown along with a dozen others not available in the USA straight from the Dan Pipe/Dan Tobacco catalog a few years back. The tin itself is quite wonderful and unique. The tobacco itself, unfortunately, is not.

Sweet Georgia Brown is a broad cut mixture with lots of cased Burley cavendish and a smattering of Virginia. It smelled like brown sugar and maple syrup in the tin and tasted like brown sugar and maple syrup at the match. Frankly, I prefer brown sugar in my oatmeal and maple syrup on my pancakes. I like my pipe tobacco to taste like pipe tobacco and Sweet Georgia Brown does not.

This was a tough one to keep lit and had an uncontrolled urge to bite.

The room note was wonderful though.
