Since I tried this blend, it is all I have been smoking. It is right now my favorite blend. I absolutely love this stuff. It is mild gives no tongue bite is a little of a pain to keep lit --- but in my opinion the flavor is outstanding. Think sweet caramel and you got it . not sickening sweet but a deliciousness you will be going back to again and again. This is pure smoking enjoyment. You will not get a nicotine rush from this but if you enjoy aromatics as I do for the most part, you should give this one a try.

After a half-bowl I was ready to rate this a solid 2 stars. High quality and inoffensive, but very little in the way of flavour and satisfaction.

But in light of the other reviews, which are often quite glowing, I thought perhaps I was doing something wrong. And indeed I was! I was sipping, and the tobacco is way too mild for that. So I tried giving it a higher puffing cadence and fuller draws. And that did the trick.

The key here is to build up thick plumes of smoke. That helps to develop the flavour, which is actually quite rich and pleasant once the tobacco heats up a bit. But have no worries: the bowl won't heat up, nor will the flavour become acrid. I would NEVER smoke other tobaccos this way, because slow, gentle, shallow draws are usually the key to maximum flavour, aroma, and cool burning satisfaction.

On returning to the room, the lingering fragrance was light, unobtrusive, and exceedingly pleasant. Nothing artificial or cloying. Simply refreshing and, one might say, appetising. It was a bit like being out of doors, downwind of a bakery.

In a nutshell, I'm addicted to this stuff! Tastes of chocolate and vanilla and smells as good as it tastes. Its very similar to MacBaren's 7 Seas Black, but slightly sweeter to my tastes.

Maybe I've just smoked English blends so much for so long that my tastes are changing or I'm just now discovering a few aromatics that I actually like. Regardless, Dansk Black will have a permanent place in my cellar.

I am, without doubt, a black-cav kind of guy, but not too fond of heavy aromatics. And this BC suits the bill wonderfully. It does everything well: moisture about right (but 30-min. drying will not hurt the experience), packs and lights with ease, smokes down to a fine gray ash. Can't really make it bite, though others may be able to.

The tin aroma is heavenly but in no way heavy; the vanilla and caramel notes are subtle. The aroma is divine, 100% wife approved, and whiffs of sidestream smoke tell me she's right. Heavy, beautiful smoke. More complex than you would think and it gets even better about the middle, still good at the end. Dottle means one is smoking too hard--hard puffers definitely should spread a bowlful out to dry for a half-hour before lighting.

This blend is similar to other black cavs as noted below, but better. BCA and CB Dark are good--really good--but No. 47 is a bit tastier and stronger than CB Dark and a good bit tastier & stronger than BCA and Smoker's Pride Black Cav. I don't know if it is the topping or what, but No. 47 is just ballsier than the others. Peter Stokkebye really got this one right.

Exceptional, but you smoke this for flavor, not for the nicotine hit. I could smoke No. 47 all day (and have), but at some point I just need more vitamin N. But who smokes only one tobacco all the time?

Very very nice. I'm not an aro guy however this is actually pretty neat. Others say no tongue bite but I puff like a race-horse so I actually got bit a little(I need to calm down). I like this blend a lot for its room note and taste, no nic hit here. 3 stars because I'm still waiting for that holy shit aromatic that i'll probably never find. However I got some Blood Red Moon coming so we'll hold the phone for that one. Overall a nice pleasant all day smoke for all you aro heads. Very caramely with a hint of vanilla and not at all boring. It'll be sweet till the end. Easy to light and stay lit.

This is the Black Cavendish I've been blending with most recently, and have been for a few years. I thought I should actually review it after all this time.

So I smoked a bowl of this straight, and got more fruit flavor than caramel or vanilla that others have noted, but those probably are there too. As a matter of fact, I almost felt like I was getting some alcohol fumes as if I was drinking a cordial, when I wasn't drinking anything. I'd say that's a good thing for an aromatic.

No tongue bite, and there is a little Vitamin N if you're looking for it.

This is a perfect example of a simple but satisfying blend. Tastes great,cocoa, and fruit essences, and a really nice black Cavendish flavor that isn't hidden under the casing. It all melds well. I don't gget the feel that much PG is used, and that is appreciated. Perhaps this isnt for everyone but I believe even people who dont normally smoke aros would appreciate this for a mellow blend.

Peter Stokkebye - Dansk Black (No.47)

As someone blessed/cursed with a sensitive nose, I’ve never been a big fan of aromatics in general, because they’re usually unbalanced and overpowering. Restraint and subtlety seems sadly uncommon among such offerings, regardless of industry (tobacco, liquor, soaps, deodorants, room fresheners, candles, etc.)

Enough soapboxing. So, as someone who normally eschews aromatics, what is it that drew me to Dansk 47, you ask ? Answer: it has earned honest stars from many sources - not only good quality and value, but blendability, and (most importantly) balance and restraint in a category already crowded with highly aromatized excesses, sold in bulk, from a plethora of sources. Vanilla is, after all, THE single most ubiquitous aromatic there is in the tobacco universe, to the point where it’s almost impossible to say the word “cavendish” without first mumbling “vanilla”.

DB47 is more noteworthy for the common sins it avoids, rather than for any one thing it does particularly well. The moisture level for instance is just right - neither too gummy/sticky, nor too dryish. The black ribbons, although a tad longish (easily corrected with a chef knife), are springy and well behaved, pack nicely on their own, and play nicely with others in homemade blends. The tin aroma, while certainly clear, forward and unambiguous, manages to avoid being overpowering or reeking of artifice. The smoking qualities stay cool and supremely mild, while avoiding gloppiness (from excess moisture or humecants) and tongue bite (from excess alkalinity). DB47 clears these common pitfalls with ease, leaving behind most of its competitors, and it does so at a competitive price.

Could it be improved ? Oh most definitely ... but that would run contrary to its price point. In this range, there’s simply no need for premium boutique vanillas, or rare burleys and virginias from distant exotic lands - they’d be too expensive, and leave the resulting blend too ‘busy’, and it would lose the simple inexpensive elegance that makes it what it is.

So, what’s the bottom line ? This is an inexpensive, gentle, wonderfully cool and mellow black cav that gets little wrong, and a quite a few things right. It’s simple, clean, balanced, reasonably restrained and uncomplicated. Its friendly to buy, friendly load, friendly to smoke, and friendly to blend. A win win.

As for the flavor particulars - there’s the obvious top notes of decent quality generic vanilla, paired with a smooth and pleasant note of caramel/toffee/milkfudge. Further back in the finish I find a touch of chocolate (probably a natural character of the cavendish that may have been discreetly nudged), and perhaps the tiniest whisper of cherry and coffee.

There's a lot of bang for the buck here, and its earned a spot in my blending alcove. I give it 3 of 4 stars (very good), but it deserves a little more. I wish this site used a 5 star system so I could give it 4 (excellent). Add a FULL star if you're an aromatic fan on a budget.

Not a whole lot for me to expound on, but just wanted to chime in my recommendation for DB. There's nothing game-changing about the blend for me, but it's a superbly done black cav nonetheless. Especially if you give it 6 months to a year jarred to ferment and age a bit more. I'd have given it a 2 rating at first fresh was inoffensive, pretty smelling, but somewhat lacking in taste and character. More of a blending cav. But after 14 months in a jar I'm giving it 3-3.5 stars. The sweet, fermented vanilla flavor has really blossomed. The smoke is very cool and won't ever bite. For a black cavendish, it burns pretty well too. When it was fresh I had to relight so many times it was difficult to relax and find enjoyment. Not now, however. I recommend DB, and it'll keep a place in my rotation. At this price you don't have much to lose.

I have been looking for more Black Cavs to give me a break from BCA and PS Cherry Bonbon. What a great add to my rotation. A cool, smooth cool with just enough casing to make it interesting. Nice caramel note. An all-day smoke!

One additional note - after several months of smoking, I would highly recommend dedicating a pipe to this blend. The casing will really take over a pipe and cause other blends to take on its taste

The real question here is, how do you like your BC's? Do like 'em with flavor or do you like them smooth? Or, perhaps, you like them with both flavor and smoothness. Well, if you like both, you're not getting them here. Dansk Black is smooth, really smooth, so smooth I couldn't taste anything. It's smooth, hot air, with a pleasant scent (but, who cares about scent? Not I. I smoke for myself, not others). So, the answer to my question is, I like Black Cavendish blends with a good amount of flavor, like Lane's BCA or Mac Baren's 7 Seas Black. Two stars here for me.
