Product: Dan Tobacco Bill Bailey's Birthday Blend 50g
I was lured in the direction of Bill Bailey's Birthday Blend by reviews that said it was flavored with Blue Curacao. I generally like tobaccos flavored with spirits or liqueur even though I've found that as a whole they tend to burn hotter. I'm also ... Read Morea fan of tobacco blends with a singular taste, be they aromatic or not. Birthday Blend certainly manages a unique taste and is definitely an aromatic blend. The tin note is very sweet and reminds me of jelly donuts for some reason. It is somewhat moist from the tin, and could benefit from a little drying, but not too much or you'll lose some of the flavor too. The cut is a basic run-of-the-mill ribbon cut, nothing special, but adequate for enjoyment. I found it best to lightly pack the bowl, i.e. little to no tamping. The charing light is a bit harsh and not indicative of the flavors to come. First draw was akin to burnt sugar or some such ruined sweet. After the bowl has a proper light and allowed to slow down a bit, flavors more reminiscent of the tin note came out. The slower you puff the better, which leads to some relights, but no bother, by this time it becomes a palate pleasing tasty treat. The flavoring may or may not remind you of Curacao, but it is light and citrusy, somewhat orange tasting and overall I think whatever is used works well with the already sweet blend of Black Cavendish and Virginia. This isn't the sort of blend I'd make a routine of. But once in a while, maybe once a year on my birthday or some other such holiday, I could see myself reaching for this one in the cellar again.
