Dan Tobacco The Mellow Mallard

The rich aromatic pipe tobacco - Sweet golden and brown Virginia leaf matured for extra smoothness.
Notes: Description from the German website: This tobacco is free from added flavours, and excites smokers whom prefer pure tobacco, as well as lovers of aromatics tobaccos. Here we carefully fermented and matured very tasty and flavourful sweet Virginias from Zambia The Mellow Mallard. Popular with old and young smokers, we couldn't wish for an attribute more suitable for this tobacco. The term describes this brown-flecked ready rubbed flake the best. Look forward to a wonderfully full and mellow taste, that's free from any harshness. Experience the rich, sweet Virginia aromas. Due to EU regulations, this is renamed and sold in those countries as "The Mallard".

I have to say I agree with the descriptions of this tobacco with regards to composition and presentation - however, that is where it ends. The pleasant appearance and aroma of this rubbed out flake in the tin unfortunately did not translate into smoking pleasure. As much as I tried to enjoy this tobacco, it just didn't work for me. Although the smoke is reasonably strong (sharp), in my opinion, it simply lacks body and any form of flavor - even the natural flavor one would expect from Virginian tobaccos of this style and cut.

I was searching for available virginia flakes and came across this one . Being a Dan tobacco I expected something strong but this one was a little over the hill . Although the can says " aromatic" I could not detect any aromatic agent in it . The flake is dark and a little thick and there is no tin note that I recognize as virginia . As far as I can see , the smoke simply had no virginia taste , just strong tobacco with no clear direction .; After a few bowls I gave up trying to find some grace in it . This one is a dead duck .
