Dan Tobacco Hamborger Veermaster

A genuine and classic English Virginia flake, just as the "sailors" on the "windjammers" (tall ships) loved to smoke it: The taste of genuine tobacco, not too mild, yet still "seut un' sacht" (sweet and mellow). The slow and cool burn offers the best premises for a quaffable, aromatic-mellow smoking pleasure! "Blow, boys, blow!"
Notes: Regarding the name of this blend, which some people mistakenly think is 'Hamborger Beermaster' because of the typeface used on the tin (a variation of blackletter known as Fraktur where the B and V are easily confused); the ship on the front is a German four-masted windjammer, called a "Veermaster". This coupled with the fact that Dan Tobacco, the producer, lists this blend in their price lists as "Hamburger Veermaster".

HV was among the first three or four tins I ever bought. And though I have since discovered that I prefer the English styles and LatBombs more often than not, this is the Virginia I reach for when I want to switch it up.

Again, I'm not deep into VA's - Hal O the Wind and McBaren Dark Twist are the only other two pure VA's I've tried - but both of those suffered from a too-tangy sweetness that turned me off before I could finish the tins. But Hamborger Veermaster keeps me coming back. This is a clean, easy smoke with a complexity that unfolds as you work through a bowl. Fun to play with too.

3 Stars - a solid smoke that I will continue to keep on hand.

I tried this tobacco after reading all of the positive reviews about it here. First off I have never tried a Dan tobacco that knocked my socks off. They have been ok, but not anything I would go out and purchase again. The best way I can describe this tobacco is bland. Not bad, just not rememberable Maybe I have been smoking too much Cairo and Haddos Delight. Also I find the price of Dan tobaccos to be a little pricey. In its defense, I do have to say that this is the first flake I have smoked that had no bite to it.
