Orlik: Dark Strong Kentucky 50g

Product Number: 003-046-0010

This Orlik number takes a mix of select Virginias and combines it with, as the name implies, dark-fired Kentucky, to create a flake that provides a fine contrast between the bright and dark flavors of these tobaccos.

Good, But Something Artificial About It
April 11, 2018
Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
This was an enjoyable smoke, but like many brands, I detected something artificial in the flavor. I mostly smoke C&D, so I am quite sensitive when there are ingredients other than all natural tobacco. This has that mildly "something is just ... Read More

Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
Beautiful flake presentation with a stripe of golden Virginia down the middle. Lovely aroma and flavor of stewed fruit. I only wish it had a bit more spice to it. Otherwise, easy to prepare and, if dried accordingly, smokes well. If not dried it ten... Read More
Great smoke

Dark fired tobacco is great, and it combined with the licorice/plum topping makes for a great, heavy, dessert type smoke.

Really smooth and very tasty tobacco. Nice sweetness and no tongue bite, this tobacco is a masterpiece.

well i love OGS, but this fell short, looks amazing, with alternating stripes of dark burley and light virginia, smells promising, but the taste was flat and bland. maybe some time in solitary confinement would straighten it out? it looks and smell... Read More

Find myself unable to like or dislike this blend it has a pretty distinct taste that I would describe as molasses I also taste the dark fired and get the Virginia. But the main taste is the Molasses sweetness not really what I'm looking for in a blen... Read More

Agree that it's a great all day smoker. Fully bodies and sweet. Molasses from start to finish, and lingering finish that is so pleasant. I love this tobacco. After not enjoying the golden sliced, I was pleased to enjoy this one from Orlik is not just... Read More
Not too shabby

Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
Just finished a tin of this and I think it ended on a good note. Initially, I was not all that impressed. I tried the blend in various briars but always found the the topping to be too much. A brown sugar/molasses flavor takes the forefront of the bl... Read More

Smooth, rich - an all day smoke

Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
Used my William Demuth long-stem system pipe for this. Didn't bother to rub it out, but just folded it in. Stays lit, no problem. Very smooth, no bite at all. Purchased this during the recent sale and am now upset that I didn't get more.

Not too strong, smooth with great flavor and pleasant room-note. Will keep this one in the top 5 in my rotation, until something better comes along. Don't see that happening any time soon. A little pricey, but, worth it if you want the best of the be... Read More

this has a silkly smooth subtle brown sugar/chocolate taste that is a subtle compliment to the burley and virginias. this is a very very nice smoke

Orlik's Dark Strong Kentucky is quickly becoming my choice. As Christopher and others have posted, this blend is not too strong. What it is, is satisfying. I have and am generally a smoker of non-aromatic English blends. Those favored tobaccos mu... Read More

Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
This is not a strong flake. It's a good smoke, smooth and a good amount of billowing smoke. I think it would've been strong had they backed off with the sweetness. The sweet is dominant I find. Good flavours just too sweet to carry the name "Dar... Read More

This is a really fine tobacco with the sweetness of molasses, the malt, tamed by the nutty flavor of the dark Kentucky making it smooth, medium strong, and a very mellow smoke!

Sweet molasses and brown sugar. Received a tin as a gift. Will have to buy more. My only complaint, its not sold in larger tins.

First off,I was a bit scary of this,thinking its being too strong and punchy to my likings,but it turned to be opposite, Very nice,mellow and bold mixture, there is something similair tastewise with their Golden Sliced,perhaps same sort of virginas ... Read More

A really great tobacco from Orlik. It is medium strong, not too wet, good burning. The taste is tobacco real, but also flavors of malt / Stout Beer, licorice...little sweetnes are tasted. Not for allday, but sometimes a good smoke for a nice evening.... Read More

I've been smoking this for a few months now and it's become a favourite. It's not that Dark or Strong, but that's okay. DSK smokes great and has a sweetness that tames the Kentucky better than the other attempts I've tried. Folded or rubbed, it's gre... Read More

This pipe tobacco is enjoyable from the first to last puff. This is a mellow and pleasant blend of select Virginias with some dark fired Kentucky. It is not overpowering even though it provides a smokey and complex taste and room note. Do not let a b... Read More
Aromatic
August 16, 2015
Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
I was expecting more of what the name intimated. It's just too much like an aromatic. Very sweet, but not in a natural way. I was hoping to get some earthiness or smokiness, but this flake doesn't offer that. I'd say if you like aromatics and want to... Read More

Not what I expected
June 13, 2015
Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
The name is somewhat inappropriate. Though there is some dark fired in this blend, it's accounts for a 1/3 maybe? It's not "strong". The dark fired is there, and it makes itself known, but doesn't dominate at all. The VA's in it are quite... Read More

Product: Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky 50g
Take a flake of Wessex Burley Slice, a flake of Orlik Golden Slice, and mix with just a pinch of HH Old Dark Fired - that's what this tastes like to me. It's disappointing as I was hoping for more of a smokey spicy dark-fired flavor. This looks alm... Read More
