Dan Tobacco Wittkittels

A "ready rubbed flake", i.e., cut up ready to smoke. A feast for the tongue for the pampered light smoker. Various grades of Virginia from bright golden yellow to deep brown present an interesting picture and soft, mild smoking pleasure. A gentle flavouring refines the taste and puts its stamp on the good room note. Suited for any sized bowl (with small chambered bowls you should rub out the tobacco chunks a bit more)
Notes: Wittkittels ("whitecoats") is what the citizens of Hamburg used to call their firemen in the old days, because of their white uniforms.

Ridiculously cheap blend from Dan Pipe, Germany.

Comes in a neat tin with a foil lid as well as a plastic top.

Enticing tin aroma sweet virginia tobacco with a slight almond edge. Nice, very nice.

The smoke isn't that smooth and to be honest it's a bit harsh and tastes rather like a cheap tobacco, which of course it is, but at HALF THE PRICE of a UK blend it doesn't matter.

It's not all bad, but I have found it gets really hot and nasty on second or third relight. It's best to smoke as much of the whole bowl as you can before putting your pipe down and letting it cool, then emptying out the deep grey ash it produces.

Recommended for those on a tight budget.

Wittkittels is a high quality blend. The tin has a mixture of ready rubbed , nice smelling tobaccos at a wonderful grade of moisture. Can be smoked all day. It has a effortles, cool and slow buning smoke. Some fruity flavor touch made a good combination wit the high quality Virginias. A very little Cavendish proportion I think has been added into the blend.
