"Take Five" – a five minutes break. Title of the famous jazz classics and name of this Virginia Ready Rubbed Mixture. Who does not know the pulsating rhythm and the playful dynamics of the play from the saxophonist Paul Desmond. Dave Brubeck and his quartet made "Take Five" world-famous and their interpretation remains unforgettable. The basis of the "Take Five" Ready Rubbed Flake consists of a Virginia Honeydew Flake, which was blended with White Burley, some Black Cavendish and various Virginias as Loose Cut. A distinctive spicy-floral aromatization combined with the honey-sweet Virginia-Flake ensures a deliciously tasty smoke. A subtle lemonfruit-note gives the "Take Five" the distinctive charm and its unmistakable touch, which almost challenges a small break. "Take Five" – a five minutes break. A feast for fans of sweet direction who know a top quality to treasure. ... what does not know a break is not permanent (Ovid).

The aromas are so cleverly chosen that they support the tobaccos and their characteristics. The burn-off is easy and leaves only medium-gray ash for cleaning, with some unburnt crumbs and some condensation.
