The exquisite balance of this exotic mixture stands for the unity between the Dutch and Flemish Pipe Smokers Forum members. That together many pipes may be smoked! The blend is beautifully balanced with light and red Virginias, latakia, Oriental tobaccos, some black cavendish and a pinch of perique.

The very richly smoky, woody, earthy, sweet and fragrant Cyprian Latakia leads much of the time. The woody, buttery sweet and sour, floral, herbal, vegetative, earthy, spicy Orientals (including Syrma) well complement the Latakia in a secondary position. The red Virginia offers very tangy, ripe dark fruit, wood, earth and a touch of bread. The light Virginia has some tart and tangy citrus and grass as a minor ingredient. The red Va. is just a little more noticeable, but it’s not a major player. The unsweetened black cavendish offers some smoothing brown sugar, while a pinch of perique provides a little raisin, fig, plum, and spice way in the background. It won’t bite, and has no dull or harsh moments. The nic-hit and strength are a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste level is medium. This well blended, complex tobacco is lightly moist, but needs no dry time. Burns at a reasonable pace, cool, and clean with a richly smooth, consistent sweet and savory, campfire flavor in every puff. Requires an average number of relights, and barely leaves any moisture in the bowl. The smoky, woody sweet after taste pleasantly lingers, though the room note is a bit pungent to the non-smoker. It has enough strength to suit an experienced smoker in this genre, and for that person, can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars out of four.

This was more akin to a black cavendish aromatic, a little sticky in the tin. It was fine, but with so many other HU blends available that are good, this one is an easy pass. It was like the kitchen sink blends that SPC makes, too much going on.

Fantastic blend. Smooth and rich throughout the whole bowl. Burns evenly and smokes cool. A delightful English that can be enjoyed at all hours of the day.
