Signature Vintage Mixture is a superb Danish mixture, blended to perfection with natural Virginia from the best areas in Malawi and Virginia and ripe Burley from Mexico and Kentucky. To achieve the delicate smoothness Larsen added mellow black Cavendish. The Burley tobaccos have been pressed into cakes and matured, sliced and then rubbed out. The Virginia leaves have been cut in a broad cross cut to please the eye and the palate. This unique blend has been enhanced with a subtle note of natural sweetness yielding a mellow rich smoke.

I have enjoyed several tins of this now and have enjoyed it. I have lately mixed some Lane Dark Red with it and it makes a wonderful mixture cutting the sweetness of the Dark Red but adding a real nice touch to the Larson. Wife loves the aroma. Ju... Read Morest ordered more! Read Less
I’m not very good at describing the flavors in pipe tobacco but I do make comparisons. If you’re familiar with the German and Scandinavian made tobaccos you know that they have a distinct flavor compared to other tobaccos. In my experience the Larsen... Read More Signature Vintage tobacco is one of the best of these blends. It has a topping of some kind, could it be honey? I would hope it is something natural and not some artificial ingredient. Don’t let the royal blue tin, the price, and the gold foil inner package make you think that it is all about marketing. This is very good tobacco if you like German/Scandinavian blends. I should say that I smoke this in a pipe dedicated to aromatics that is filtered which I find cuts down a lot on tongue bite. Read Less
This is a product that is worth its price.

At first it is rather medium taste, with a progress that diverges between the distant halo of cherry and red fruits, a bit acidic on the tongue, later on it brings a very walnut flavour surrounded by virginias.
Very much a scandinavian aromatic, has body and developing flavors while keeping a sweet touch as complement. Read Less

Pleasant aroma, though tended to fade towards the end of the tin. Perhaps would be better if smoked from a 50g tin, instead of a 100g one (drying). Still pretty enjoyable.

I decided to try a Larsen tobacco for the first time. What a delightful taste and aroma! I have smoked the Larsen Signature with different pipes (Ardor, Dunhill, Rinaldo, etc.) and each smoke was outstanding!

fantastic aroma, you can just sit with the tin and breath. However the burn proves to much is going on, massive bite. You get hints of what they are trying to do, but the complexity fades with the ash.
I bought a 100g tin of this Larsen Signature based on good reviews. What a disappointment. The packaging is impressive, leading to the impression of a quality product.

I filled a pipe and on first light was given a smell and taste just like a toilet air freshener, probably rose flavor. The tobacco was very difficult to keep alight and the entire smoke was a struggle. After half a bowl of air freshener some light tobacco tastes start to emerge - very mild and light, accompanied by bite and a very hot pipe. The bowl of my Big Ben became too hot to touch.
I don't know why this is called 'Signature Vintage Mixture'. Flowery Pot Pourri with Tongue Bite would be a more accurate name. I certainly won't be buying any more of this concoction. Read Less
