My wife grabbed a pouch of this as a gift while travelling overseas, it's not available in the states as far as I can tell.
It's a Danish/Dutch aromatic, VA and black Cavendish with a sweet topping that smells to me of apricots or figs. The topping is not overdone and this aromatic is not a wet mess.
Smoking it you get sweetness and occasionally a hit of coffee-like flavor. Not sure where that comes from. The Cavendish gives the smoke some body and it generates a decent amount of nice smelling, room pleasing smoke. You will have to watch your pace with this, as if you puff fast it will burn hot and turn bitter, though I didn't experience any bite from it.
An ok, basic smoke. I'd rate it at 1.5 stars, simply because there's nothing about it that is stand-out, but it isn't bad tobacco. If you like Danish style aromatics it's worth a try. If this were all that was available, I could smoke it and be relatively happy, but I'd never choose it if other tobaccos were available.
This was my first pipe tobacco! So, nostalgia kicked in. Really mild, nice taste and one of the best tin notes I have ever encountered. It is recommended for beginners for these reasons alone. But objectively, well...this is it and nothing more. Give it a try if you are a beginner or you want an easygoing all day smoke.
This was my first pipe tobacco and since I am not that experienced, I will try to be as objective as I can. Skandinavik White is mediocre in everything in my opinion. Good for a start especially because of the price but nothing special to remember and make me look for it again.
The pouch smell reveal a topping coffee-like and the Black Cavendish brings a mild fruitiness more tart than sweet. A simply and easy aromatic without gurgles nor bites which burns well, so well that it get easily hot and it requires very slow puffing to avoid bitterness. I found anything special here but it isn't really bad.
Come tutti gli Skandinavik che ho provato (non molti, grazie a dio) questo tabacco è una vera fetecchia. Gli Skandinavik sono, per quanto mi riguarda, dei panettoni dolciastri brucia lingua per neofiti che molto presto cambieranno tabacco, scoprendo i veri tabacchi ed affinando così i loro gusti. Purtroppo molto reperibili, sono il classico errore da principiante.
