Glad I tied it prior to reading the "Ch-German-Nest" review of this product... with appropriate regard for difference of pipe smoker taste preference of course. I find the subtle "fruit" (plumb?pear?) overtones are sublime, albeit... Read More not entirely consistent with each and every pipeful. Its moisture level is good: minimal re-lights, but satisfactorily cool-smoking. Medium-to-mild in character/strength; favorable "room note" and ambience; best smoked not too quickly... even if it means an additional re-light or two. In all, one of my personal favorite and most distinctively pleasant pipe tobaccos, particularly in the morning, but most ANY time. And yes: thoughtful indeed, in the best sense of the word. The only criticisms I have are: 1) It burns ju-u-u-ust a bit too fast; and b) I would prefer to have this pipe tobacco available in BULK... Having been in the packaging and marketing business, I know that often 75-90+% of product price is often due to packaging or container, product processing, labeling (including design, artwork, lettering, etc.)... as well as marketing, advertising and other overhead. This can however, is a much more practical container than the usual "shoe polish" size can.

Dan Tobacco followed the right script. Build a monument for one of the greatest German pipemakers. Unfortunately the smoking experience leaves a lot to be desired. Its neither natural nor aromatic, its an in-between and not in a good way.
