Black Ambrosia Loose Cut
Virginia und Cavendish
Ambrosia – just savouring the word elevates your expectations, because Ambrosia ”was the food of the gods and goddesses in Greek mythology”. In 1983 when our tobacco masters first tasted the new, mild Cavendish that they had developed, “Ambrosia” was the only proper word to use to describe the taste experience. They had been experimenting with a variety of raw tobaccos for a long time before they finally came up with the right blend. Virginia tobaccos from the third world were selected, each with its own unique qualities. Each one was an excellent tobacco in its own right, but only when they were blended together into a mild Cavendish did the pipe smoker experience something out of the ordinary. A rounded taste composed of the finest taste nuances, the natural sweetness supported by a completely new Mac Baren taste. This Cavendish was truly something extraordinary, and from its completion in 1983 right up to today it has been used in numerous new Mac Baren blends. The rounded, slightly sweetish Cavendish is widely known as: Modern Mac Baren Cavendish.
The Black Ambrosia Loose Cut proves to be somewhat bulky during plugging, despite the Loose Cut contained in thicker leaf parts, so you should proceed with care, if giving the tobacco down easily into the pipe and ending with only gentle pressure.
Already with the first flame one should be careful to ignite the surface evenly. If you then use the tamper to smoothen the surface of the Black Ambrosia Loose Cut, the second flame carefully used forms a glow that lasts until the end of the filling.
The smoke of the Black Ambrosia Loose Cut is tobacco-spicy. The use of Virginia can be tasted in the toasted bread notes, but also nutty aromas are noticeable and make the course of the smoke varied. In addition to the rather spicy aromas, there is also a dark-toned sweetness that looks quite natural. Thus, the Cavendish preparation gives the smoke a pleasant feeling of rounded fullness. The broad fibers glimmer down very calmly, leaving only some ashes of medium gray and little condensate that hardly do any cleaning work.
In the room, the smoke of the Black Ambrosia Loose Cut shows up to be tobacco and only very light sweet, so that it presupposes tolerant society.
Although the darkly held Black Ambrosia Loose Cut appears to be a perfectly conditioned Loose Cut, the slightly inconsistent cut requires some attention when plugging and igniting. With a little practice, however, this also succeed beginners who should have no problems with its moderate strength and the burning behavior. The cold scent is sweeter than the flavor that is tasted later. In addition to the usual aromas of toasted bread and nut, the warm aroma of the Cavendish completes the overall picture harmoniously. Even the quiet burning invites you to enjoy this tobacco relaxed, so that you can smoke it incidentally - but that would be almost a pity.
