Dan Tobacco: The Mallard 50g

Product Number: 003-293-0032

The Mallard is a smooth ready-rubbed Flake based on the extraordinarily rich and full-bodied sweet Zambian Virginia that was carefully fermented and matured under pressure. There was no need to add any flavorings to enhance its aroma, and it has found great reception among committed friends of pure natural tobacco and among lovers of flavored pipe mixtures as well. You can look forward to a wonderfully gentle smoke with a perfectly rich and sweet Virginia taste.

The Mellow Mallard is a nice simple virginia offering that smokes fine. Unfortunately the cut, a rather broken flake style, is not perfect to deliver the taste that wafts out of the tin.
Could be special, quality leaves something to be desired.

Dan tobacco, a venerable old company, seems to make good tobacco in general. The Mellow Mallard is no exception, and behind the Roper's, is my favorite. This tobacco bills itself (no pun intended) as an all-day smoker. That it is, but for the one pr... Read More
Non-aromatic pure Virginia taste.

This is a mild rubbed-out Virginia flake with a quintessential Va taste: slightly grassy, but not sharp; just enough citrus zest to detonate your salivary glands; and a wine-like sweetness that doesn't mask the tobacco flavor. I'll recommend this the... Read More

Product: Dan Tobacco The Mallard 50g
Comparable to C&D Carolina Red Flake and just about as rare. Ready to smoke from a freshly opened tin. Tin note is very low key. It’s ready rubbed but can benefit from a little extra rubbing to facilitate an easy burn. As best I can tell, it’s an una... Read More

Amazing Virginia, aromatic?

Product: Dan Tobacco The Mallard 50g
I bought this recently I'll admit for the tin art. I wanted it for my wall and it sat in my cellar for about 3 months. Popped the tin and it smelled like any Virginia. Opened up the wrapping and noticed to my delight sugar blume here and there across... Read More
Solid VA smoke

Product: Dan Tobacco The Mallard 50g
Yes, the tin says "aromatic", but this is a straight ready-rubbed VA/Bur flake tobacco, and a pretty good one at that. Not as full a smoke as most of my other VA stash (FVF & HOTW, mostly), it is very mellow and smooth, with a pleasant "room note" th... Read More

Product: Dan Tobacco The Mallard 50g
Admittedly, I mainly bought this for the tin art and it's name. I am pleasantly surprised. I was worried this would be an "aromatic" due to the labeling on the tin. It is not at all. A wonderful natural Virginia tobacco. Upon opening I... Read More
