Selected tobaccos from North America, South America, and Africa comprise Newminster's blend No.48, Danish Gold. But, the natural Cavendish aroma together with a mix of caramel and different fruit aromas is what sets it apart.
If you are looking for a very sweet and very flavored aromatic, then this Newminster Danish Gold is not the one you need. It has a little sweetness in its tin note, a little in its room note, and a bit in its flavor. But it's a mild and reserved swee... Read Moretness, mainly from the quality Cavendish, but probably some from the flavorings added, too. Let's talk about those flavors. They are not in your face like a lot of, say, cherry or many other fruity aromatics. Rather, there is a very "low key" caramel and the slight detection of a little fruitiness. Barely. You can taste the Cavendish a lot, and it's a quality mix of brown and black. There may be a little Virginia also floating around the flavor profile; in fact, the Smoking Pipes description says Virgina and Burley, but that is a misprint. I detect zero Burley, and in fact I checked other sites and none say Burley. If it's there at all, I can't detect it. So it's very light overall, some Cavendish plus hints of flavorings. Zero bite. It does need to dry a bit, say 20 minutes. It packs beautifully (a very consistent ribbon) and smokes clean with zero relights needed, usually. I just do a char light, relight it, and go all the way to the bottom, slowly and pleasantly. So, it's a little sweet, but not like a typical aromatic; it's quality Cavendish, but maybe with a bit of Virgina to help it out; it's flavored, but the flavors are mild and meld well with the natural components; and it's a light, clean smoke that's easy to deal with. For me, it's up there close to Eileen's Dream, which is still my favorite aromatic, but Danish Gold is just too light to rival Eileen's Dream. You MUST try this one if you like aromatics that are not so sweet, a light Cavendish blend, and mild flavors that are reserved and low key to the point that you have to tease them out or even retrohale to find them sometimes. I really like this tobacco as a change of pace from my usual non-aromatics and recommend it heartily to folks who want an aromatic that's not "kool-aid" sweet. Get some and stuff that cob! 4 / 5 Read Less

Yes, a nice aromatic. Rather typical combination of Virginia, Burley and Black; but keep in mind there's a reason why this combination is so popular.

A great blend. The tobaccos are balanced and complementary, and the casing is tasty and reserved. Subtle raisin, plum, and vanilla caramel at the top of the bowl, with cocoa and burley edging forward later on. Excellent even burn, stays lit and is re... Read Moreasonably forgiving on cadence.
