There is nothing much to say about this blend. It is heavily flavoured and you will not get much tobacco taste out of it. The tin note is very pleasent and complex, very comforting. Sadly it does not carry over into the smoke. But this blend is readily available and over here almost everyone has tried it at one time or the other.

At the beginning of the bowl this *is* a nice blend providing you are into heavy aromatics. But after a few puffs already the sweet, alcoholic aroma with a very slight hint of tangerine already flattens and is entirely gone by the middle of the bowl. From then on out its hot air.

Many people seem to have real problems lighting up the cubes but all you have to do is to dry them out properly and it lights easy and burns like a charm.

Tongue bite is not an issue and the room note indeed is a real treat.

So do i recommend it? No, not really. If the flavouring(s) would last longer and the taste would stay as in the beginning of the bowl i probably would give it three stars. But being at it is i only can somewhat recommend it *if* you are into heavy aromatics and are after cube cut tobaccos which are somewhat rare.
Pipe Used: It went trough rotation.

Ye Gods, this is heavily cased stuff indeed, words can't describe all the flavours that emanate from a freshly opened tin. It has perfectly formed cubes all the way through and as such is not realy easy to pack, there being too much empty spaces between the cubes when packed in your pipe. But it packs a punch as well and is not as mild as most Danish offerings. I would say there is quite a bit of dark fired Kentucky in these truffels as well as just plain old Virginia. Try it at your own peril but be sure to dedicate a pipe to it as the casing will haunt that pipe for ever more! Update febuary 2010: A recently bought tin does not seem to be so strongly cased anymore and as a result it is more smokeable!
