What do you guys think of Dan tobacco blends ?
I love them, DaVinci, Blue note, Devil's holliday, pure pleasure. 4noggins just had a sale on all dan tobaccos, no need to tell you I stocked up a bit!
I've smoked Blue Note and Devil's Holiday, I like them both. However, the Blue Note can bite if pushed.
Ive only had their Bill Bailey's Balkan Blend...its good.
DaVinci was too strongly cased for me. Blue Note is a pretty good aro. Hamster Beermaster is good. Tordeskjoldkfjedsift slices are nice. Old Ironsides is good.
You spelled it wrong. You left out 2 J's and 1 K.
I have only had Midnight Ride (va/oriental/perique) and Hamborger Veermaster, which is a straight va. Both were good smokes, although I liked HV a little more.
Not had any of their blends but the Hamborger Veermaster is my number one Va. flake at the moment.
I'm a huge HV fan (I rank it even with FVF). Not too keen on devils holiday. I swear there was another I've tried but can't remember which.
I hear good things about Hamburglar Viewmaster. Never tried it, but I'd like to. For the moment I'm happy with Union Square and Full Virginia Flake, though.
Blue Note is quickly becoming my favorite blend.
Haven't had any bite to speak of though...
London Blend No. 1000 is one of my favorites but proceed with caution cause it's lat heavy!
Seems like this blender likes fruits and rum. Just like Peterson blends. Is blue note just like connoiseurs choice?
Ill try one day the hamborger veermaster and that Tordeskjoldkfjedsift slices
Blue Note bites the hell out of me for some reason. I have not tried any other Dan blends.
While similar they are not the same. Peterson makes some excellent aromatics as well - personally Connoisseurs Choice is catching up to Blue Note as my favorite aromatic.
I have had, and like them all:
Bill Baileys Balkan,
Sweet Vanilla Honeydew, but that was my least fav of the above 4.
hmm another one to try out
Dan Tobacco- the malthouse founders reserve-An outstanding blend of sweet Virginia that is infused with Scottish Single Malt Whisky
Old Ironsides is my goto Latakia smoke.
Never tried, Dan Tobacco. On my list though.
