A & C Petersen Caledonian Melange No.410 Curly Cut

A deluxe blend of choice tobaccos such as Louisiana perique and golden Virginias. Spun together, carefully pressed, and then hand cut.
Notes: It went out of production as a factory blend in the early nineties, but is still available through A&C Petersen's "My Own Blend". Ask for "#410" or "Black Caledonian"

I never got to try the tinned version: Black Caledonian. It went off the market before I chose to smoke a pipe.

Available as bulk from "My Own Blend", i bought some, since I had read a promising review of the tin version in Danish literature.

That, my friends, was a mistake. It does have a nice topping, which is quite similar to that used in Singleton from Orlik Tobacco Company, but it will bite like nothing else.

Even MacBaren cannot keep up when talking "BlisterFactor". If Virginia No. 1 is 13 on the BF-scale, this baby would probably top 1000.000 on the same.

Similar leaf that will not dismember your face: New Ripples from Orlik. Go there instead..
