Selected tobaccos from North America, South America and Africa in a medium loose cut. The natural Cavendish aroma together with a mix of caramel and different fruit aromas is what it takes to achieve the final taste. It is wonderful smoked by itself, but also makes a great blending tobacco.

Newminster - No. 48 Danish Gold.

Mostly, the blend's made of brown Cavendish, with a smaller proportion of black. The caramel's easier to notice in the pouch note than any fruit/citrus. Although the majority of the blend's made of medium-size ribbons, there's some chunkier pieces of leaf in there, too: a few twiggy bits, and some minuscule broken flakes. Even though it's been in the loose pouch for about a month it's still slightly moist; not horrendously so, but it's not anywhere near being dry!

Now, the smoke from No. 48? As I found in the pouch-note the caramel outweighs the fruit/citrus, at first, and it goes well with the Cavendish. After about a third, to half, of a bowl, I begin to get a sharper flavour coming through from the fruit/citrus attributes; this makes it seem a little less mild tasting. A bowl burns well, but it can easily becomes too warm if I chug my pipe too forcefully; well, not even that 'forcefully', just at a regular pace it seems too hot. Adding to my distain is the tongue bite: gentle sips are a must!

The room-note's perfectly none-offensive, and the nicotine's mild.

I enjoyed my first bowl, but after smoking a few throughout the morning I find it boring.

Too mundane for any higher than two stars.

Somewhat recommended.
