A bright colorful tobacco blend for all smokers who like full sweet and fruity. Golden yellow and deep-brown Virginia and soft Burleys form the base for a great mild-to-medium smoke, with the sweet, natural flavor of exotic mango providing a lush room note.

Tin note, room note are both nice, very nice. But the taste is awful, it tastes like burnt mango cake or something. My notes to this blend say "tastes like burnt mango flavoured rubber tobacco".

Also it can nip the tongue quiet a bit if not smoked overly correct.

It burns down hassle free and even and if i remember correctly a bit on the slow side. After half the bowl the aroma gets less and less and only hot air remains.

I like Danneman for their cigars and was happy to get hands on one of their pipe tobaccos as well. But after this blend my curiosity for them dissipated like snow in the sun and i have not tried any of their other blends.

This is one of the blends i cannot say anything positive about and i really do not recommend it to anyone. Which would be a moot point anyways since luckily this blend will be gone from the market by 2016.

Pipe Used: It went trough rotation.

As long as you don't know a person's personal taste or preferences, it's very hard to select a pipe tobacco for a gift. At least I tend to get the wrong kind for birthday or X-mas most of the time (one exeption from the rule being Samuel Gawith's Black Cherry). Like this one.

The blend consists of light to medium brown leafs with a few black sprinkles, effusing a strong, overpowering, sweet and fruity smell of mangos and hints of vanilla. However, it seems all chemical too me. There's no tobacco scent whatsoever. The cut is heterogenous, moisture level rather high.

It's advisable to let it air a short while before filling your bowl. In doing so I prefer the Frank method. Don't pack your pipe too tightly, because the tobacco tends to expand upon lighting, which can usually be done with a single charring and true light.

From the start there's a fruity, sweet, sort of sparkeling taste with the mango leading the way, and only the Virginias and Burley in the blend keeping it from getting too sugary. Again, there's no tobacco taste at all, so it's hard to tell the quality of the leafs. Don't smoke this one too fast or else it'll loose its aroma, bite your tongue, and start to bubble as well. Smoked with care, it's a mild smoke, and the artificial flavoring will last to the end, but there's a slight bitterness at the finish. It burns down evenly, leaving quite some moisture and graying ash.

The room note is rather sweetish with only a little fuitiness and maybe some nutty undertone. Since it doesn't really smell like tobacco, it's well tolerated by innocent bystanders.

Why this is for a Sunday smoke? I don't know. I didn't like it and I won't buy it myself. Maybe I'm prejudiced, but somehow I feel that genuine premium tobacco wouldn't need so much flavoring.
