W.O. Larsen Limited Edition 2009

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 honestly don't know why I bother with this company. They make beautiful tins which are certainly worth collecting, but when it comes to the tobacco, they always fall far from the mark. This particular blend is no exception. The tin I have is actually two years old and has been aging for a while, so that should have helped it. The tobacco was reasonably dry when the package was opened, but upon smoking...well it was not really a pleasant experience. I really don't know what to compare this to. It's supposed to have a rum flavoring(though it's more akin to whiskey). At times it sort of attempts to head towards what Rattray did with "Bagpiper's Dream", but really just doesn't hit it. The tobacco is so nasty that the best description I can come up with is skunk or garbage weed. If you want a nice aromatic, look somewhere else. The tin is one of the best however, so if nothing else, I guess that is worth having. I wish I could recommend another company here. I would steer you there. Look under "B" and "U" here on this website. There are two there that make some incredible aromatics if that is what you are looking for.

The only tobacco ever that I threw away. Nope, I did not even want to store this stuff in my tobacco cellar for fear of contaminating some of my goodies. The "sweet notes of dark rum and wild berries" turned out to be nothing but a strong dose of rose perfume intermingled with stale sweat. The taste (don't ask) and smell were reminiscent of an unclean woman trying to mask body odour. What a disappointment from the people who make the renowned Larsen's Signature Vintage Mixture.

Having been given several holiday tobaccos by well-meaning, non-smoking friends, this one likely garnered attention because of the attractive container. I just got around to opening Limited Edition 2009 this past week and there's certainly nothing spectacular about this blend. In fact, I rate it lower than most aromatics. I'd advise avoiding it altogether...there are many, many better aromatic choices available.

As so aptly noted by Moçambicano, this 100g will likely last the entire year...then probably end up being discarded. I'm not sure I can manage many bowls of this mediocre WØL offering.

Pass on Limited Edition 2009.
