The No. 1 in the BULLDOG series. A mixture of the best light gold Virginia, dark Virginia, deep brown Kentucky and a trace of latakia. Highly aromatic flake scraps according to Irish tradition, moderately added, give it a pleasing flavor, without falsifying the tobaccos' character. The relatively short cut ensures slow burning with cool smoke. Aromatic, spicy scent.

I bought this tin some month ago. The irish with latakia caught my attention.

Opening the tin, there is a strong aroma of berrys and somewhat almondy/ marzipan twist. Latakia adding a nice note. The tobacco is said to habe "Flake Scraps", but all I can detect is a even cut tobacco with a nice diversity of colors.

You can smoke it easily when fresh. Even if it is a bit moist, it with brun well.

At frist you get a big rush of berry aroma. Sourly-sweet. Just like a fresh opend jar of marmelade. Soapy notes slightly adding here. Towards the second third the aroma slowly vanished, giving the tobacco more room. Kentucky giving a fine earthyness. Still a strong sweet-sour note. More sour. Towards the end the aroma ist just in the back.

Overall a fine tobacco for people who like a fine fruity aromatic.

This is another great example of a floral scented tobacco. It’s reminiscent of HU’s Daddy Gefftl but this one has more of a licorice flavor to the sauce. This is everything I was hoping Mix 79 was going to be. I’m quite surprised it only has one review as of today’s date. This is not a blend I smoke often but every time I do, I think, “I oughta smoke this more often”. It’s potently flavored but the wonderful flavors of the natural tobacco come through as well, albeit, I don’t taste a lick of Lat (that’s fun to say!) and I imagine it’s added to cool the smoke and give it a bit more body. It’s mild to medium in body, mild in nic and the roomnote is very pleasing. I’m looking forward to trying the Flake in this series.

Great stuff and worth a try for those who like that floral, English vibe.
