Dan Tobacco Wappen von Hamburg

Bright to medium brown Virginia in various cuts and some mildly sweet black cavendish, finely tuned with flake slices, which also make for a quiet glow and cool smoke. Wappen von Hamburg is a richly aromatic, soft mixture; in the taste, a genuine tobacco taste prevails. The rather unobtrusive aroma only serves to enliven the natural sweetness of the Virginia tobacco. Preferably smoked in wide bowls.
Notes: In the old times the flagship of Hamburgs admiralty. The first "Wappen" (german for "emblems") launched in 1669 and sailed also a convoy-ship, protecting Hamburgs merchant sailors from pirates. Wappen Von Hamburg (Emblem of Hamburg) - the name obliges.

This could be a great aromatic if the strength of the tobacco (nicotine) and the tobacco flavor (taste) was increased. It is just too mild for me. (There is a definite, but faint, taste of honey here.) The casing should not be increased as it would probably get too hot.

I could smell this somewhat but could barely taste anything. The room aroma is quite nice - my wife, unsolicited, said that this smelled really good.

If you prefer mild tobacco, this may be worth a try.

Wappen von Hamburg smells like Haribo Gold-Bears out of the tin, but the topping is surprisingly soft when smoked. It is fruity but doesn’t cover the tobaccos completely, definitely a crowd pleaser though. I can taste bright Virginias in the foreground providing some edge in the beginning accompanied by a little Burley. It will smoothen out after a few gentle puffs, letting you enjoy the creamy, fruity candy casing in nose and mouth, if you are into such an infantile thing. This blend does not need much attention and is perfectly suited for a smoke in public or even at the office. WvH is a very pleasant aromatic available at a fairly low price (in the EU) and therefore a delicious price-performance winner.

If it is not available for a reasonable price where you live, subtract a star. Of course I am prejudiced, because I live in Hamburg.
