Paul Olsen Tobacco of Two Decades: 1939-1959

Notes: A typical mixture as the ones they smoked in the 40's and 50's with light loose Virginia, pressed Virginia, latakia and cavendish. This is a full bodied blend that gives you the scent of those days. My Own Blend digs up the old recipes and provides you with a taste of those days.

Paul Olsen - Tobacco of two decades: 1939-1959.

I'm lucky enough to have accumulated a fair stash of Paul Olsen blends over the past few years, but try to be sparing with opening/reviewing due to the price; this is about 25 euros plus post and packaging from Denmark. Anyway, I decided to pop this one today and can gladly say it's worth the expense.

For starters, it's not an astringent Lat-Bomb. The Latakia's of the mellower variety; it's not sharp or caustic. To put it simply, for a Latakia it's quite a soft flavour. The Cavendish adds to the calmness: there's a vanilla note that's easy to ascertain, without it seeming too false or sticky; it doesn't detract from the fact that this is an English at heart. A bowl of 39-59 burns extremely well all the way down and leaves only a little dottle behind.

The nicotine's quite strong, and the room-note's very enjoyable; a little heavy, but I like it!

A very well accomplished blend.... worth the cost!

Highly recommended.
