This is my favorite of the various Cavendish/Perique/Virginia spun tobacco blends that I've tried. To me the flavor is richer, brighter and more varied than Stokkebye's LBF or Comoy's Cask No 7. Of course it's priced a lot higher too. The tin arom... Read Morea reminds me of rich home-baked raisin bread. The flavor reminds me of Escudo, but tastes more natural to me. There's more perique flavor in here than in others of its type. I agree with the prior reviewer that it starts out more on the fruity side, but the spiciness builds, in fact the whole blend of flavors builds as the bowl goes on. It's got the right amount of sweetness and nice balanced Va flavor. If you like LBF or Cask No 7, try a tin of this for a treat. It's not an everyday smoke for me (mainly because of the cost), but it sure is good.
Update: After looking up the tin code for Davidoff (YYhhMMmmDD) I've found I've been enjoying tobacco that was already aged over 2 years in the tin before I bought it. I don't know if this is typical, but it may account for the great flavor of this batch. In order to stretch it out, I often sandwich a coin of this between two of LBF, and the effect on the flavor is amazing. Read Less
While I’m not new to pipe smoking; I am new to some of the fine tobacco on this site. This blend has blown me away: smooth, savory, rich and refined, it burns slow and well. Although my tastebuds are still changing, I always want to reach for this on... Read Moree! Read Less
Soft, sweet, grassy tin note dominated by the Virginias. The Perique is understated to the nose,
contributing a mild fig aroma. Sliced twist tobacco that is extremely well-behaved in the pipe.

Comparing this to other "coins" with a Cavendish center like Bullseye Flake, Comoys, and Ropers from Dan, I like this one the best. It is smoother than Bullseye and Comoys Cask #7.

As much as I love pipes, I hate cigarettes. And a lot of people said this blend is quite cigarettte-ish..So, I wasn't encouraged to try it but then I had the chance to..

The first few times I tried this, i was in love. It was mellow, sweet and the perique was not overpowering. I recently ordered it again and was quite disappointed. Not sure if my tastes have changed or the blend has, but it just wasn't the same. The ... Read Moreperique if far more dominant and it tastes out of balance. I frequently developed a crust on the tobacco that had to be scraped away and tossed into the ashtray if i wanted to keep it lit. For the price it's not great.

Beautifully looking, tidily arranged, large Curly Cut coins in the tin. The black centre of each coin is Black Cavendish. Surrounding the black eye we find bright Virginia and darker Perique. Delicious tin nose, being that well known of Virginia and ... Read MorePerique.
Fantastic blend, impeccable tobacco. Perfect moisture. I fold the medallions and stuff them in my pipe, without braking or rubbing. Superb balance of Virginia and Perique. The Black Cavendish rounds up the blend, adds softness, and some sweetness to the natural sweetness of the Perique and Virginia. The body of this mixture is tangy Virginia, which never covers up the delightful Perique. In the first half of the bowl the Perique shows more its fruity aromas and only a little pepper. In the second half of the bowl it’s the opposite. Pleasant after-taste. A Rolls-Royce mixture on the sweeter side for all Va/Per aficionados. Read Less
My first VaPer blend. What's really special about this blend is the touch of Cavendish (uncased) that is added. As a pipeman quickly weaning my way off of aromatics, which were never that satisfying anyway, I find this Davidoff blend to be perfect.
