From my experience with tobacco, the word Royal lives in infamy. I have never tried a "Royal" blend and was satisfied, except for Royal Yacht of course. So, I was quite conservative while trying this out. It was under a scrutinizing test. A... Read Morend it delivered, hugely. Starting with the elegant, minimal tin art and description. When opening, you're welcomed by a lovely, strong, demanding aroma of orientals. The tobacco itself looks beautiful.. Fine ribbons of golden and green Virginias, dark orientals and perfect black Latakia. The cut is great.. Mostly long ribbons and shorter ones. Which makes packing it a breeze.. The tin is a bit on the moist side, but absolutely smokeable. Lighting it takes a few tries - probably because of the moisture - but when it lights, it stays lit and burns quite well. Star of the show here are the orientals. Smokey, spicy and rich. They have a prominent taste, aroma and leave an after taste. This is supported by a dark, earthy Virginia and a hint of smokiness from the Latakia, though it's most of a background tone. I asked non smokers and most think its aroma is tolerable, but not "Good".. It's mostly a nice all day smoke. Nothing special or unique.. But one of the best Balkans I have tried

So, I decided to start smoking a pipe. This tobacco sounded good. I bought a tin and a couple cobs, and gave it a whirl. It was apparently good, because I've been smoking a pipe every day since this showed up in the mail. Excellent flavor, great ... Read Moremoisture out of the tin. I enjoy this at night, it helps me relax. It won't knock you out with flavor or nicotine, but it's still a pretty great smoke. Read Less
I am a recent convert from cigars. Though I've always had a pipe, I usually smoked tobacco with names like "Blackberry Cordial" -you get the idea. I recently smoked my friend's Dunhill Morning Pipe tobacco and loved it. This Davidoff Roy... Read Morealty is -to me- even more of what Morning Pipe offers. Smells like old brick chimney out of the tin, but smokes with this creamy smoothness with just enough smokey Latakia to never let you forget it's there. No bite, no bad aftertaste. I love it!! It is my new go-to smoke. I used a Petersen System Pipe, packed on the tight side, lit just in the center of the bowl and kept it at a light burn. Amazing. Read Less
This is the first Davidoff tobacco blend I have tried. The smell out of the can had me pretty excited! Not overbearing with a sweet smell or underwhelming. After packing and charring light it had a pleasant taste for about half the bowl. After that t... Read Morehe taste got pretty airy and bland. I think that the strength on this one is a bit exaggerated and also the flavor. Probably a one and done for me. Read Less
This is my first experience with an English mixture, I find that it smells horrible when you open the tin, not sure if it’s the Oriental or the Latakia, but it stinks. I tried the tobacco anyway, and found that the smoke tastes and smells nothing lik... Read Moree the tobacco does before you put a match to it. All in all it was a decent smoke, I smoke it when I’m in the mood for something different. Read Less
it is OK when you spend $10 on this, but in my country it cost $100 atin and onced opened what a dissapointment!
You tend to smoke more of a lesser grade tobacco, so health wise this is also a bad bet.
