Aroma Dutch Slices's captivating mild blend results from subtly refining Stokkebye's most superior blends of Burley tobaccos with the luxurious accents of Cavendish processing. An enjoyable non-aromatic blend distinguished by its unpretentious, pleasantly mild flavor.
Beautifully presented as a nice broken flake, similar to, but smaller than Mac Baren Virginia No 1. Pure tobacco smell from the one ounce sample bag. Good moisture content and easy to load and light.

A slight chocolate presence wafted in and out; mostly noticed with the pre-light draw. This reminds me of Troost Special Cavendish of old (not the new stuff - nowhere near it!). I smoked Amphora Brown over 35 years ago and also note similarities. The nicotine presence is pretty heady with this one, so easy puffing is advised. A slight tingle to the tongue while smoking but no bite or palate scorching to speak of at all! I enjoy the taste of pure tobacco with my favorites being Irish Flake, Burley Slice, and Aged Burley Flake. Aromatic Dutch Slices is in that same league for me all around. A very good representation of the best tradition that Dutch Cavendish blends have offered in the past. A solid recommendation and good for rotation smoking. Read Less
I ordered this and several other bulk in small amounts to try. I did try a bowl just now and it reminded me very much of Troost Red, not the stuff they sell now but what I started with 46 years ago.

Very nice burley and Virginia blend. Thought P.S. labels it "aromatic", it's not an aromatic. A natural blend with no detectable topping.

Smoke is quite pleasant. Slightly sweet, slightly nutty. Both the burley and Va's share presence nicely here. Again, no topping that I can detect at all. Just the natural nuttiness and sweetness of the burley and VA leafs.
Takes a light well, and burns without much effort. Resists over-heating. No bite at all and burns all the way down to a nice clean silver ash.
Not harsh at all, no gurgling it bitterness sometimes associated with below par burleys. Strength is mild to medium, yet very satisfying.
A lovely all day smoke and an excellent base blend. For the money, it would be very hard to beat for someone wanting a slightly sweet, mild to medium all day smoke.
Mixed with Stokkebye cube cut burley 70/30 DS to CC makes a lovely blend.
Hard to go wrong with Dutch Slices. A classic old school cut and flavor. Read Less
I smoke this all day long as well as using it as a blender for stronger tobacco. It doesn't have the bitterness halfway through the bowl like cheap burleys do.It's sweeter than most burleys. Almost like a mild Virginia at times.
