I wanted to like this tobacco. I like liquorice and alternative tastes. First it was too wet and tasted like a moist hairy fist, so I let it dry in the pouch for a relight months later. Now it tastes like a confusing slap in the face. Tastes like a combination of flavors that shouldn't be together. Add tonguebite.

I'll give it one last shot at some point. I'll try to not smoke anything else beforehand for an honest final review. As I said, I really do want to like this tobacco

Perhaps I am being unfair. I have tried this one only once. It is a strongly cased mixture, rather moist, with a pronounced flavor comprising dark chocolate, raspberries and some licorice. It not only is very aromatic, but the taste is equally sweet, almost sickly sweet. The tobacco comes partly in ribbon cut and partly in rough cut chunks, covering the light and dark brown as well as the black spectrum. IMO not very different from Sail Noir (also blended by TN).

I imagine that the casing agents are responsible for the difficulty in the lightening and smoking characteristics of the blend. However it does not burn hot. It is mild in terms of strength and, as with many Dutch blends, it tends to render the palate dry. Presumably this is TN?s answer to Borkum Riff?s Black Cavendish. Recommended only to die-hard aromatic smokers.
