Thanks to the double-fermented Black Cavendish, this pipe tobacco gets its fine sweetness and the bright Virginia proportions provide a contrasty look. The additions sambuca and real liquorice make the mixture particularly aromatic.
Since the Ocean Blue is packed in a pouch, it is good to take with you, but if you want to store the opened tobacco for a longer period of time, you should transfer it to an airtight container. The Ocean Blue is a mixture of dark brown rather short and narrow cut fibers and small, golden-brown squares, which were pressed firmly into the pouch and slightly fragrant to fruit cake smell. Since the tobacco looks slightly damp when it is first opened, it should first be loosened a bit and allowed to pre-dry before being stuffed.
The Ocean Blue can be plugged as usual for loose Mixtures despite its different sized components. If you start loosely down and end with gentle pressure, you will achieve a steady burning.
If, after the first flame, you gently use the tamper to smoothen the surface, you will get a uniform glow with the second flame and the Ocean Blue will burn until the end of the filling.
The smoke of the Ocean Blue is lush and tobacco-spicy, with which the tart, reminiscent of licorice root harmonizes nicely. Also, in addition to the mild smoky, natural tobaccos is to taste a fine sweetness that can be attributed to the Sambuca. The flavor used is so at any time and to taste until the end of the filling, but this does not whitewash the used spicy tobaccos, but serves as a background. The remaining fine, light ash and the few condensate make the final cleaning very easy.
The redolence of the Ocean Blue is tobacco-strong, but mixed with the sweetish aroma, so that it should not attract attention in tolerant society.
Despite the interesting cut, the Ocean Blue is easy to handle. The moderate strength is suitable for beginners, too, especially for those who are looking for a tobacco that can be smoked at any time without being too weak in its appearance. The flavoring is dosed so that the underlying tobaccos are not covered, but highlighted. Spicy tobacco harmonizes with tart licorice root and the fine sweetness of Sambuca completes the flavoring pleasantly, so that a very balanced smoking experience is created, which is especially attractive to smokers who are seeking no “aroma bomb”.
