Edition 2009: Like every masterpiece this blend is crafted of the finest tobacco leaves from the best districts in the world. This, combined with the heritage of W. O. Larsen, provides an exquisite mixture of bright Virginia from North Carolina, dark brown burley from Mexico and special fermented black cavendish enriched with sweet notes of dark rum and wild berries. The exclusiveness of this W. O. Larsen Edition 2009 is underlined by the copper coloured Virginia grown in the red soil of the African plains.

I like to get into the holiday spirit with some of the limited edition tobaccos. I usually don't have high expectations, but am usually not disappointed. Not this time this stuff is just plain vile! (first impression).

I received the beautifully scrolled bronze colored un-sealed tin the other day. As I opened the tin a thick toxic aroma lofted into my nostrils almost making me nauseous! Inside the tin was a heat sealed plastic bag. As I opened the bag to transfer the contents into a jar, (erroneously thinking the toxic aroma was the plastic bag).

I noticed something white mixed with the tobacco inside the sealed bag. It was a sticky-back label! Thats right a mixed up mashed partially shredded LABEL still sticky INSIDE THE MIXTURE! This in itself is an unconscionable lapse in quality control. But still nothing to the toxic aroma of putrid stale, rotten fruitcake, left opened in a back cupboard for several seasons.

The tobacco is fairly dry (not at all sticky) and uniform in color and finely cut. It lit just fine (I was half expecting the fumes to ignite).

Okay I am revising my earlier single star. After sitting for a week or so in a jar and away from the plastic bag and tin, this stuff is tolarable. The aroma not nuarly so strong and toxic now kinda sweet and liquery. Burns better and has a not un- pleasant taste.

Still not my favorite, and I have never found trash in a tin before but if you like holiday aromatics you might want to give it a try. Just let it sit for awhile!
