...is of course not just for birthdays or other festive occasions - that would be too bad! A very light, aromatic and gentle tobacco composition with a fragrant bouquet, refined with the fruity-sweet flavor of "Blue Curacao" for an unprecedented fresh smoking pleasure with a very pleasant redolence.
The Birthday Blend is predominantly black and dark brown with lighter proportions. The tobaccos are wider, but cut very short and exude an appetizing scent of sweet coffee and chocolate, which probably results from the combination of Curacao aroma and the smoky Latakia. For a flavored tobacco, the Birthday Blend is very well conditioned, which is why the tobacco can be plugged immediately.
The Birthday Blend makes it easy for the smoker, because it is, as usual with loose mixtures, plugged down loose and tighter upwards. You do not need to pay more attention.
After two flames with a gentle smoothing in between, the Birthday Blend burns reliably until the end.
The Birthday Blend is, as expected with the flavor used sweet, with a subtle sour note, which has a juicy, fruity aftertaste and is clearly attributable to the Curacao or the bitter oranges contained therein. Below is a delicate nuttiness and mild spiciness, which may be attributed to the basic tobaccos. These natural tobacco flavors appear more clearly in the further course of the smoke from the second half onwards, at first harmoniously until they are then spicy over the actual aroma. Now you should also gently use the tamper, so that the tobacco comes back into contact with the embers. You should adapt your smoking behavior to the tobacco and do not puff too hard on the pipe, as the Birthday Blend can otherwise tingle on the tongue and also tends to gargle. If one observes this, only a few dark ashes, some unburned crumbs, and for an aromatic surprisingly little condensate remain.
As promised by the manufacturer, the redolence of the Birthday Blend is corresponding to the fruity flavoring, sweet and actually pleasant for non-smokers.
Made of dark tobaccos and sweet smelling the Birthday Blend can be easily plugged and ignited, so it is - even in view of the moderate strength - suitable for beginners. Only the smoking behavior should be observed a bit, but otherwise the Birthday Blend offers everything that lovers of the aromatic direction appreciate: the aroma of Curacao is to be tasted as at the same time fruity-sour and sweet bitter orange, while the basic tobaccos stand out spicy especially in the later smoke, which gives the tobacco that extra something.
