This delicious formulation consisting of gold and red Virginia tobaccos, blended with the sweet, mildly spicy Black Cavendish, is rarefied with fine, aromatic Bourbon vanilla. Should you discover a discreet notion of honey while enjoying this marvelous tobacco, you´re right. We have finely modulated the mixture with the subtle flavours of wild honey. This absolutely mouthwatering mixture spoils the enthusiast with an original Danish smoking pleasure.
The Virginia Honeydew is a mix of medium to dark brown and black tobaccos. When you open the tin already the sweet aroma spills out that smells clearly as vanilla and recognizable as honey. The flavours displace any tobacco smell. The Cut is relatively fine and the humidity is optimal.
The Virginia Honeydew could be plugged very well due to the fine cut. You can simply let the tobacco trickle into the bowl and press down gently from time to time. The upper layer should take a few finer crumbs of tobacco to facilitate the light up a little bit.
The Virginia Honeydew could be very easily light up with 1 to 2 flames. Possibly the tobacco straighten up at the first light up. Mostly it glows evenly after depression with the tamper, but sometimes it may be necessary to re-ignite.
After light up the Virginia Honeydew unfolds his sweet vanilla aroma, honey one can imagine, but not clearly taste out. In addition, a very subtle, slightly bitter taste is recognizable that could come from Black Cavendish. The Virginia Honeydew glows rather good-natured and does not react too strongly to higher temperatures, like many other aromatic blends. Nevertheless, you should pay some attention to this so that the subtle nuances of the flavours can fully come to retribution. After about one-third one can remark next to the sweet flavours a tangy, fresh taste of Virginia. The sweetness reduces a little bit, but remains until the end. The Virginia Honeydew glows without much condensate development to a medium-grey ash.
The redolence of the Virginia Honeydew is typical for blends with vanilla flavour. The sweetness covers nearly any smell of tobacco. The redolence is unobtrusive and the Virginia Honeydew is suited for any occasion.
The Virginia Honeydew is a rather fine mix of medium to dark brown and black tobaccos. The vanilla flavour is always present: Upon opening the tin, in taste and also in the redolence. Honey could also be guessed and in the taste a slightly bitter note of Black Cavendish is recognizable too. In the course of a pipe filling the tangy fresh taste of Virginia rises up. The sweetness diminishes but remains present until the end. Glowing down is good-natured and the Virginia Honeydew is not as temperature sensitive as most other aromatic blends. Nevertheless, one should be careful because the nuances of the flavours are on the best advantage, the cooler the tobacco is smoked. The Virginia Honeydew is classified as light. It glows without too much condensate to a medium-grey ash. The Virginia Honeydew is recommended for experienced pipe smokers who like to smoke something sweet, as well for beginners.
