Peter Stokkebye Aromatic Dutch Slices (No.308)

Stokkebye’s Aromatic Dutch Sliced - This blend’s captivating mildness results from subtly refining our most superior blends of Burley tobaccos with the luxurious accents of Cavendish processing. It’s reminiscent of some beloved Dutch tobaccos that are no longer available. {Note: despite the name, this appears to be a non-aromatic blend}

Peter Stokkebye - Aromatic Dutch Slices (No. 308).

Like many, when I saw the name Slices I expected a flake tobacco, but like the picture here, I received a broken flake/coarse ribbon. The next thing to perplex me was the other part: Aromatic?? Hey-ho, it's only a name!

The moistness makes for an immediate smoke from a fresh pouch. The overriding taste is a sweet Burley one; sort of like honeyed nuts. It's much sweeter at the beginning of a bowl. After about a third the sweetness subsides allowing the nutty character to overtake (it's around this point where the Virginia comes over more definitely, too). I don't think this warrants the title Aromatic, it doesn't taste anywhere near flavoured enough to give credence to the name. From start to finish it burns well, quite cool, with tongue bite only happening under force.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Three stars seems right:

This blend is similar to PS Toasted Burley in many respects, but has additional processing as well as components. It is not a slice, but rather a broken flake or ready rubbed flake of a dark golden color. It has a sweet aroma in the bag that is likely the casing, as well as a top dressing of artificial fruit flavors, perhaps "apple" that bears no resemblance to its namesake.

While burley may dominate the mixture, its presence is weak, and likely serves mainly as a vehicle for the sweetened casing, likely propylene glycol. This lends a creamy sweetness to the smoke. The cavendish processing contributes some lightly caramelized sugar. The fruity tin notes don't really translate to the smoke except perhaps as a very weak shading. The Virginias are the most noticeable actual tobacco flavor, fighting through the sweetened components up front to contribute...more sweetness, but in that buttery Va fashion, on the exhale and aftertaste. It's not really one note, but all notes are on the same narrow spectrum.

In my opinion this is an aromatic, and while you're not beat over the head with a vanilla or cherry note familiar to many aromatics, it's not natural tobacco flavoring that's dominating the smoke. It's mostly a sweet blend, modestly sweet and not sickening, but not really for me. Too bad the burleys weren't more assertive here, because a little savory component would help. Strength is pretty low. I would say this is essentially a drug store blend made with a little better leaf and a little more restraint, but the endpoint is roughly the same. Because of the processing it is quite well behaved. I won't be revisiting this, but it is a product of moderate quality and I'm sure many people would find it quite enjoyable in a simple way.

This isn't a bad tobacco, but it isn't that great either. It packs and burns very well. Like many of the more plain Stokkebye blends, it has a definite RYO taste and aroma, though much less than their dual-use blends. It has a bit of a bite and a bland, muted burley/cavendish flavor. Reminds me more of Prince Albert than the old Amphora Brown. If you want something inexpensive to puff on throughout the day, or a mild blending burley, this might work for you, but on it's own there so many better burley blends out there to choose from.

My bulk sample had an ideal moisture content of the light brown tobacco but the 'slices' in the naming surprised me in that the cut is a shag as indicated above. Sort of reminded me of the old Amphora cavendish blends but with much less added flavor. Seems like true tobacco taste but not as sweet as the VA flakes that I prefer. I gave up smoking cigarettes years ago and this one reminded me of that taste. Smoked cool and without bite or condensation, but I won't order again.
