Holger Danske: Black and Bourbon 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-032-0002

In European literature, Holger Danske is a popular character who first appeared in Old French poetry, most notably as either the enemy of Charlemagne or as one of his knights. As a line of pipe tobaccos, Holger Danske blends are produced by Mac Baren according to Denmark's rich, aromatic pipe tobacco tradition.

Black and Bourbon features double-fermented Black Cavendish mixed with toasted U.S. Burley. A balanced top flavor, dissolved into bourbon whiskey emphasizes the mellow character of this mixture.

A Different Take
February 01, 2018
Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Here's a dark horse in the Whisky genre. Smooth & flavorful. Ready to go from the tin, hydration was perfect. Very harmonious and rather unique. Well behaved burn rate, with no bite & a dry finish.
A new favorite.

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
It has a unique taste and aroma, It burns well and evenly, no dottle left in bowl it burns to a fine ash. I tried a tin, and went through it in 2 days. Promptly bought another 5 tins. If your looking for something wdifferent with a good taste, this i... Read More

To be honest, the tin note smells like Copenhagen dip but upon first light, the aroma of apricots/peaches and cream fills the air. This blend is very smooth, bold rich and elegant. The peach/apricot taste alongside black coffe without the bitterness ... Read More
Sophisticated & Elegant

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
The tine note smells like Copenhagen dip but the aroma at first light is of peaches/apricots and cream.. then hints of coffee and a smoky flavor that just tops it off. Very smooth and elegant. This was truly a shocker and will definitely buy again.
Great flavor!

I’m not really qualified to leave reviews as I am a new pipe smoker, so take this with a grain of salt…but I have been sampling lots of different aromatics, and I have to say this is the first one that gave me that “wow” smoke! Just a really nice bou... Read More
Just Fine.

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Quite good. This is a rather decent smoke, and i character the flavor profile as being hardy and rich. Always a fan of bourbon or whiskey flavors though, so this wasn't hard to like or enjoy. For the price, it's an acceptable purchase. Go on then and... Read More
Dark and Creamy
January 20, 2022
Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Dark and creamy is how I'd describe this. The aftertaste is sweet and smokey, kind of a faint reminder of molasses. It tastes good all the way through. It seems to like to stay on the dry side, so don't worry if it doesn't seem as moist as most other... Read More
Surprising.

I'm not really an aromatic smoker. I'm more of a VA/per VA/but smoker. I bought this tin on a whim, and very glad I did. I found the tin note to be extraordinary, and the room notes be no less, this may become a daily blend for me.
Viking Ship

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Anything with a Viking Ship on the label better be good, right? The tin note is incredible, and one of my new favorites. It reminds me of a high end box of mixed chocolates with hints of black raspberry and dark cherry liqueurs. I don't smell the bou... Read More

While this didnt strike me as something I would want often it does a good job mellow and easy smoke worthy of a shot.
A Deft Take
May 10, 2022
Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
A full-flavored take on bourbon that keeps the topping and the leaf in balance. Burns well, with good smoke production. Mildly sweet, with a savory, smoky edge on the draw that is a distinguishing feature. It maintains a harmonious whole throughout. ... Read More
Gag!

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Holy cow, this stuff is bad!!! I love aromatics, but this stuff has a flavor that tastes like old gym socks. I can't for the life of me understand all the positive reviews. Who knows...maybe I just got a bad batch or something.
Good with drying time
September 15, 2021
Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
I enjoy an occasional aro, especially a good bourbon aro. This was way to wet to smoke well at first opening of the tin. I tried letting a bowls worth dry for a bit, still to wet. After letting the tin sit 3 months it's now perfect to smoke with hard... Read More
Stong Whiskey

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Its strong tobacco but the whiskey taste is just right. If you think MC B Plumcake is a bit too much then leave this one alone. This blend is what pipe tobacco should tatste like and i like it.
NICE, but...!

Product: Holger Danske Black and Bourbon 50g
Nice smooth at the beginning but towards the bottom part of the bag (last 5-6 smokes) lost its aroma, became dry and burnt too fast and did develop a bite, even with freshly cleaned pipe. For some reason, it did not like the brigham filter pipes eith... Read More
