From Peter Heinrichs website translated to English: An exquisite blend of the finest fire-dried Kentucky tobaccos from US and African growing regions, which are refined with bright Virginias to make the taste a little softer. The unique smoky, light earthy character is not lost, it only gets a slightly sweet background nuance . A tobacco for the experienced pipe smoker !

Notes: This blend was discontinued shortly after its release, due to the tins getting rusty. It wasn't continued afterwards.

Excellent Blend! Have got 3 samples of this from my last visit at Peter Heinrichs Chateau Henri. Im pretty sure this is a Mac Baren Old Dark Fired Clone.

Smell from the tin: Earthy notes, paired with a bit of acidic/vinegar-notes to it. The vinegar-ish cant be found in the taste tho.

Taste: Earthy, nutty and a whiff of sweetness. Almost a bit smokey. It has got a decent floral taste to it as well.

Smoking experiences: The Nicotine isnt overwhelming, but its definetly recognizable. It's said "for experienced smokers" - which i can't agree with. I only smoke the pipe for about 2 1/2 month at the moment I'm writing this review. And I can enjoy it, without it being too strong or something. If youre not afraid of a bit stronger blends, you should give it a go, no matter if youre experienced smoker or not.

Summary: This is a 9/10 for me, and was a good introduction to the even more strong Bold Kentucky from MB. A very tasty and rich blend, excellent after a good meal.
