If you have ever heard the powerful boom of the BMW engines and seen the massive and yet majestic shape of a Ju52 (Auntie Ju) circling in the sunlight, surely you have felt an immediate fascination with this giant of the skies. Massive, powerful, majestic, yet playful and even a little naïve, but always impressive – this is how the “Ju 52“ blend, too, will present itself to you. Malty and slightly fruity tones give the powerful, dark pressed, medium- strong Virginia/Perique Broken Flake its character. A voluminous smoking experience in terms of taste, but without irksome weight. A gentle giant for dreams of the pioneering spirit of the past. …takeoffs are optional, landings are mandatory (aviation aphorism).
The Broken Flake in dark brown with darker and brighter parts is well rubbed out, while the cut is medium and rather wide. The Blender's Pride JU 52 smells very sweet and according to the flavor of raspberries used. As is the case with many aromatics, the tobacco is somewhat moist and should be aired one hour before smoking to ensure a good burning.
The Blender's Pride JU 52 should as a Broken Flake be carefully plugged, as pressed tobaccos often rise under the heat of the flame. The best thing to do is to keep the tobacco from being filled too firm and not to the rim into the pipe, so that the tobacco has enough space. Igniting is facilitated by placing loose tobacco threads on top of the filling.
Since the Blender's Pride JU 52 comes up slightly under the flame, it requires one to two flames and the gently smoothing action of the tamper for an even glow.
As the manufacturer promises, The Blender's Pride JU 52 already reveals a lush and yet soft smoke on the first puff. The dark-colored tobaccos, which are quite to taste, are not heavy, since above all a pleasant mild sweetness floats, which actually brings a floral note with the flowers used and complements itself well with the juicy and fruity raspberries. This flavor is retained during the uncomplicated burning to the last third of the filling and only then deviates from the more powerful tobacco notes. A medium gray ash is left behind, and little condensate for a flavored tobacco, which can be cleaned easily.
In the room, the smoke of The Blender's Pride JU 52 has due to the flavors used a "typical pipe smell" for the non-smoker, so that the tobacco is perfectly suitable for the enjoyment in tolerant society.
The Blender's Pride JU 52 is a well rubbed out, dark Broken Flake, whose full-aromatic dark tobaccos are well rounded off by the sweet aromas used. If you are looking for a full-bodied tobacco without heaviness and appreciates stronger aromas, the Blender's Pride JU 52 is a sweet treat, which can be smoked simply by the side, but also pleasantly.
