Peter Stokkebye - Danish Export (No. 81).

The blend's presented as a light brown, coarse shag: don't expect a shag that's rolling tobacco fine. My moisture's spot on, and the smell is suggestive of a sweet casing of some kind.

I can't figure out exactly what type of Alcohol/Liquor the description's referring too as I don't get any alcoholic sharpness. I find it unquestionable that a sweet topping's included, but nothing alcoholic. The topping's just above mild in weight, and isn't sticky or cloying. I'll go with honey, or brown sugar. The Virginias give a pleasant flavour, mainly sweet. The burn from it's good, although it can bite me.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: quite pleasant.

Hmmmm, Danish Export? Good enough for two stars, but too boring for any higher:

Somewhat recommended.

I am not a cigarette smoker, but the cut of this baccy appears to be much large for that use so I assume that this is the “fine ribbon” version and not the shag version used for RYO. The pouch scent offers little indication of the aromatic quality of this blend. In the blend it tastes like a light sweet aromatic. The Virginia’s are mild but the aromatic component, albit not strong, is enough to keep me from discerning some of the other Virginia qualities like hay, grass etc. If I had to take a stab at the flavoring, I would put it on the honey side. It burns cool and has no bite. This is easily an “all day” aromatic, but I personally prefer Stokkebye’s Dutch Cavendish to this. Danish Export is a solid offering for those that want an all-day aromatic smoke without the heavy flavorings like cherry, chocolate etc. Also given its price point, it is a far better choice than many of the OTC aromatics out there.

I also bought this initially as a replacement for RYO tobacco, but the cut is quite rough for that purpose and it produces too much smoke. You may call it 'pipey'. Funny thing is, smoked in a pipe I'm sure many would say it tastes like cigarette tobacco. So it's kinda neither here nor there, but it'a a quality natural Virginia tobacco, with no bite, but very subdued flavor profile. Quite pleasant if you're in the mood for something really mild. Also very inexpensive compared to the more sophisticated blends.

Summary: a nice bright/red Virginia blend with a malted honey flavor and a mild champagne top note

Filling the void (somewhat) left by the departure of "Three Castles," Peter Stokkebye "Danish Export" presents a blend of Virginias, mostly bright but some red, with a degree of fermentation and a light top note that most of us will barely even notice. Mostly here one tastes the malted honey and citrus flavor of a good Virginia blend, without overwhelming fermentation, and with minimum acid bite. While the top in this category in my view, Gawith Hoggarth "Kendal Gold," is in fact a bit sweeter and less acidic, this blend comes very close, and to my mind appeals to the same people who smoke "Capstan" or "Navy Flake." You will need to breath-smoke this blend to taste anything, but then you get a depth of flavor rather than boldness, such that you can smoke this one all day and never get bored. On the downside, it is slightly more acidic than the "Kendal Gold" and has very little nicotine, so you may really have to smoke this one all day to hit that sweet spot where the eyes brighten and the temper drops. Still, since I can run by H.E.B. and pick this up for nine bucks and change on my way out of town, I plan to make this a regular in my rotation, since it is perfect for long drives among the rolling hills of Texas.

#81 did not strike me as a shag cut (fine ribbon though), nor did I find it to be a RYO Cigarette style blend. It burned too slow for that and the flavor was restrained... very restrained, with a light and airy all Virginia taste. I note the descriptive on TRC also mentions alcohol, but I never really tasted anything aromatic although the sweetness was just enough to make me think of cloves and honey. Not bad stuff.

Reviewing as a RYO/MYO cigarette tobacco. Flavor is dominated by the topping. Good flavor, but not my favorite, like a generic liqueur taste. Some acidity, very manageble. For me, no mouth feel or aftertaste problems. For some reason, really comes together and shines as a nonfiltered roll type cigarette. For me best served fresh, maximum moisture. If dried out, the flavor fades and the smoke gets coarser. Good value.

Danish #81 is a fine danish Virginia mixture with a slight and I mean slight topping which may just be a mild liquor of some sort and other than that the natural tones to these tobaccos mix amount themselves to create this pipe tobacco. Most common this is used for RYO style smoking and being a pipe smoker I do like to twist this in a paper every now and then, my wife is the RYO fan and there is not much difference between this cut and the shag. This blend is smooth and being a flue cured Virginia mixture has some nicotine to it and YES this is preordered for cigarette smoking more so then in a pipe but yet there are those who do like to blend with it or just smoke it in there pipe there is no rules. This is high quality tobacco and there is no chemical taste to it whatsoever that's just the trendy pipe yuppy thing to say, in fact if your gonna smoke cigarettes this is the way to go because its actually 100% tobacco. The nice thing about Peter Stokkebye tobaccos is thst there blends are all actually different like Norwegian has its own flavor and style going vs. Danish and that's awesome because when you wanna switch it up you can. I recommend this tobacco if you like smoking straight flue cured Virginia's and/or cigarettes because I know that is there design for this blend all in all. The room note is stinky and the taste is mild to moderate with a nicotine kick if you inhale. For RYO style just break up the tobacco as fine as you want it and let it dry out for several hours or so and your ready to go. Thanks for reading my review God bless you and God bless America and remember to stand up for your smoking rights and support your American tobacco farmers because they need it.

I purchased this for rolling, since I liked the Amsterdam Shag a lot. I figured i'd give this a try as they were beside each other.

Rolled, its very mild. no throat hit, except a very slight one near the end of the smoke. Little taste, the paper seemed to overpower the tobacco flavor. very smooth for a filterless tobacco

I found that I much preferred this in a pipe. Flavor was easier to detect but still mild. strength was similar to the Ohm Bold pipe tobacco i started out with

Wasn't a bad tobacco by any stretch, but not something i'll be purchasing again once i'm done with this pouch

The smell in the pouch is of chocolate, a fine ribbon cut with Virginias ranging from yellow to bronze. I waited for mine to be bone dry. It lights and burns very fast but there is no bite. The flavors are: citrus, tangy and honey sweet. The chocolate is there as an after taste, especially as you reach the bottom of your bowl. I guess that for the price, you can't do wrong by buying it if you like your Virginia Danish style but there are better offerings in the same vein. Still, it was a pleasant surprise.

OK, I must confess. This is what I order for when I get the urge for a RYO cigarette, or a small pipe smoked like a cigarette. Old habits die hard! I have yet to smoke this as a true pipe tobacco, but if I do will set down my impressions. This works great in a cigarette, and I think that may be what it is mainly designed for, but marketed as pipe tobacco to dodge those exorbitant RYO taxes!

A straight Va. I have no reason to doubt the claim that it has a mild casing, since I can't see the point of saying it isn't a straight Va if it is. But I couldn't smell or taste anything except tobacco. Maybe a light spray of a sweetener?

Clearly a dual use tobacco even tho I have the pipe version, which is a fine ribbon and not a shag. There's a fair amount of bright leaf in this blend.

It's sweet and a bit lemony and reasonably acidic. Not much else going on really. Would suit a budget pipester with little interest in nuance, or someone transitioning from cigarettes, or, most likely, the smoker who enjoys both.

Mild all-day blend. Tin note is really nice dry fruit. Straight mild Virginia, topping not detected, so if there is something added, it's extremely mild.

As the smoke reaches half the bowl, it gets a bit spicier and smokier, but overall keeps similar note.

Should be smoked slowly, otherwise can get hot, although I didn't get a bite. Perfect moisture level, ready to be packed and smoked. No thinking, one-dimensional, just a simple mildly sweet all-day smoke.

Can't find any liquor taste. May be too light for my buds. First half: malt and sweet, grassy and pastry (croissant). Some milk chocolate with nuts note. Last half: buttery and creamy with roasted herbs and toffee. An easy all-day Virginia with a very light aromatic (none for me).

Danish Export is about the closest smoke I can find to Export cigarettes from Canada which are 100 per cent Virginia tobacco.I also purchased a couple of ounces of Danish Import for pipes which has a much courser cut. Didn't care for it all. It had to be relit several times and had an acrid taste and smell Stick with the shag cut for RYO cigs and forget the pipe version. I find the same to be true with Five Brothers when you want a pure burley. Too sting for the pipe but an excellent RYO when you're in the mood for one of these. I can say,however, that Danish Export shag cut is excellent in blending your own pipe tobaccos as I often do. It adds that extra tanginess from the Virginias to round out your blend. For cigarettes I give this tobacco 4 stars; for pipes I give it 2.
