The very soft and deep black Mixture is really a feast for eyes, nose and palate. Black Cavendish interspersed with light Virginia flakes - what a beautiful picture! It inevitably makes you want to enjoy the upcoming pleasure - and it does not promise too much. Of course, it is also thought of a good redolence, thanks to the incomparable Maraschino aroma, which rounds off this wonderfully soft Mixture and gives it its harmonious depth.
The mixture of the Black Blend is mainly dark and medium brown, interspersed with golden and gray-green Virginia flakes. The fibers are long and frizzy, including the abundant finely grated Ready Rubbed pieces. The scent is sweet and alcoholic, not specifically for maraschino-cherries, but more like a rum pot with red fruits. In the freshly opened tin, the tobacco looks a bit damp, so you can let the tobacco dry briefly before smoking.
The Black Blend is easy to plug. Usually you should always pay attention to begin loose at the bottom and getting stronger at the top, but the Black Blend does not harm a tighter plugging.
Also the kindling is easy. If you smooth the Black Blend lightly with the tamper after the first flame and give careful fire again, nothing prevents an uncomplicated burning.
As simple as the preparations, so easily is the smoking itself. From the first puffing, the smoke fills the mouth with a flowery-fruity sweetness. This opulence gives the impression of fullness, without the tobacco being too strong in aroma or strength. The consistently pleasant and not exaggerated aroma lasts until the last third of the filling, until it makes room for the flavor of the Virginia, which until now has been tender to taste in the background. Especially toasted bread and nuts are the usual association here, coupled with a slight smokiness. The tobacco acts until the end very uncomplicated, without gargling or tongue-burn. And the cleaning effort is easy, since only a little light ash and – unusual for a flavored tobacco - almost no condensate is to remove.
The scent of the Black Blend is surprisingly spicy, but it is also the aroma to be sniffed, so that the tobacco can certainly appeal in tolerant society.
The Black Blend is a dark, sweet-aromatic fragrant blend that does not cause any problems in either preparation or in the pipe. The aroma is clearly sweet and mouth-filling, so that a luscious taste experience arises. The tobacco is mild and uncomplicated. Towards the end of the smoking, the underlying Virginia appears with pleasant roasted and nutty flavors. Overall, the Black Blend is as uncomplicated for a flavored tobacco, so it is wonderful as a sweet treat for any occasion.
