Bright Virginia and sun-cured Kentucky tobaccos, blended with natural flowers, create a new dimension for Pipe Smokers. A unique concept symbolized by the beauty of the Cardinal - the official bird of Kentucky.
A bright to medium brown mixture of different tobaccos, interspersed with autumnally coloured petals. The smooth nutty smell of the tobacco is accompanied by a flowery, a little bit sweetly accent. In due of the different cut of the tobaccos and the ripped petals, a coloured, somewhat wild mixture with optimal humidity accrues.
Plugged as a mixture, the Kentucky Bird could be brought into pipes with any bowl sizes very good.
The tobacco tends less to swell and could be light up easy and durable.
The flowery smell of the tobacco could be recovered definitely in the taste too. A little bit sweetly taste, accompanied by nutty nuances. The mild Virginia is rather in the background and doesn’t influence the taste very much. The tobacco glows a little bit speedy, but good-natured without any tends to get too hot. While smoking the tobacco generates only a little bit condensate and burns down to a mixture of bright and dark ash.
The redolence is unobtrusive and comfortable. The flavour of the petals combine with a nutty, creamy smell, nearly as caramel. The tobacco keeps its aroma almost constant up to the end – only in the last third the tobacco comes a little bit more to the foreground.
A flowery, pleasing tobacco, both, the redolence and the taste. Easy to handle and with good-natured smoking properties. Because of the addition of petals somewhat particular, but interesting. The Kentucky Bird generates an unobtrusive redolence, which should be welcome in most societies: Sweetly, nutty, rather as caramel. Flowery, but discreet. A recommendation for enthusiasts of slightly aromatic mixtures. Suitable for beginners too, because it doesn’t need a lot of attention, burns down tongue friendly and with a constant aroma.
