Indigo is a mixture of Virginia tobacco from Zimbabwe, together with Tennessee Burley and double fermented Black Cavendish as well as a Golden Virginia in three different cutting widths. Honey, vanilla and plum aromas round off this mixture.
This is one of the nicest heavy aromatics around. It offers a very full fruit aroma which borders to the bombastic without being overwhelming. Of course it also is very sweet. This blend is double fermented which guarantees for a smooth, mild smoke. Consequently tongue bite is not an issue.
It burns very even and hassle free. Room note is very pleasing, especially for non smokers.
Else there is nothing more to say, if you do enjoy heavy aromatics with a fruity flavour then this is a clear recommendation.
This is a very good vanilla and fruity aromatic, not too bitey, not too artificial in it's casing, still some nice natural tones in there...but a true aromatic. Not all aromatics need to have a tobacco taste...! If you want a tobacco taste go smoke some plugs and ropes...and stop buying aromatics!
A very nice aromatic tabaco. When open up the tin it smells like a fat plumcake with just a sligthly mint note. In the pipe the tabaco burns very very slowly and the smoke stay cool all the time. So if you are a fan of aromatic tabacos you should defently try this one !
This is very darker pressed tobacco. It has much more burley than Virginia. It is a burley and burley kentacki aromatic. Subtle aromas dark tobacco taste, is my thing. I prefer either straight tobaccos or full aromatics. I did not really like its taste wich is very mixed fruity and chocolat or coco maybe a little alcohol taste. I can't understand the taste bd it makes me smoke harder which I do not like.
Pipe Used: briars
Age When Smoked: new
Similar Blends: University flakes of Peterson., Similar taste captain black white,but only in taste and not in style.
W.O. Larsen Indigo. I was a huge fan of the Indigo Flake they used to make and sweet memories made me eventually buy this 100g tin of the loose cut version (presently the only available version).
Sweet plum jelly note from the tin and lots of Black Cavendish mottled with some bright Virginias. To keep it short and simple: It has become a standard Danish/German aromatic that will be appealing to fans of that particular plum/honey/vanilla flavor, in which case it can even be recommended. It is a high quality aromatic, just not outstanding anymore, lacking any reason for me to buy Indigo again.
This is an imitation of Captain Black White. Black Cavendish, Burley, Virginia and smoke from Zimbabwe. Leaves of fine quality and cut, with intense aromatic vanilla and prune. Less moisture than Captain Black. It makes a good blend with a more neutral tobacco. It definitely gives very nice aroma to the surroundings.
I smoked (tried to smoke) the flake version. It was terrible. Almost impossible to put fire into the stuff. I really doubt if this is tobacco or something else. No tobacco taste whatsoever. Ruins your briars, take care! (PS room note is nice, if you manage to set fire to it you can use it as an air refreshener).
OK this is the Name Brand High-end encarnation of say a Captain Black White Pouch. Good quality leaf and cut and good caseing just a vanilla Aromatic with more quality to it and a little better burn and less goop. Hey if you like Cap Black and want something a little more user friendly this is good. I got this tin in Germany and dont know if you can get it here in the states. Anyhow a better version of the old Cap Black everyone loves to smell when you go out. Personaly for my own enjoyment I will stick with something else but will use this up when going to a public place where room note is a concern.
