Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

The flavoring is sweet, although not overly so. It does pack some punch, particularly during the upper half and middle of the bowl. As you get near the bottom, the sweetness goes away.

Chonowitsch T13: An excellent real quality Danish Aromatic. Accurately stated as “An extra mild blend of tobaccos from Kentucky, Virginia, and Maryland, plus a special Danish cavendish which is lightly topped with a sweet dressing..” specifically “.. fruity orange, cherry, and chocolate ..” I find T13 to be an excellent real quality Danish Aromatic of fine Mild tobaccos with a lovely mild sweetness. A well-balanced sophisticated tobacco blend, mild and gentle for smoking in company. Short ribbon cut, mild nicotine. Smokes well in a large bowl and stays fresh in the tin. Highly Recommended.

Medium Mild Mild Tolerable

Whenever I come across a blend I find particularly tasty, I will often try to sample the brand's entire library (assuming it is relatively small). Chonowitsch's T14 is one such blend I found to be quite succulent, later being impressed with T16, though less so with T12, and so the library tasting continues...

T13 opens to a deep, sour apricot, musty earth, heavy affair which is not what I would consider inviting nor sweet for an Aromatic, but something which in the past held promise. Good quality bits in an appropriately dry ribbon cut that just jumped into the bowl. Here comes the Zippo for the moment of truth... A heavier nicotine wave than I was expecting from a Cavendish Aromatic took me at first, that may of explained the heavy tin aroma. It bowled past any initial fruit notes and left me with a rather one note smoke with a flavor deficit.

It failed at being an Aromatic, and was instead a no frills tobacco without any sweet Virginia backing, so I'm not sure who would find this appealing. It never felt cheap, so to that end I soldiered on to tins end, narrowly avoiding the 1 star of doom, but I was certainly glad to be done with it.

★★★☆
Medium Medium Medium to Full Pleasant

This is a good virginia, leaning towards the light side. Cutting is excellent as ribbons allow an even burn. It keeps its moisture for several weeks. I have a history with "danish cavendish" in many blends that tends to bite. In this case I was a little reluctant but the cavendish used is of great quality, sweet and use in a discreet quantity. This is not to mean it´s not well balanced; on the contrary, it is part of a very good blend.
