|Tobacco||Burley, Cavendish, Virginia|
|Room Note||3 - Balanced|
The MM Great Dane pipes are their take on Danish designs. When we wanted to make a tobacco with the same name, a Danish-inspired aromatic would be the best choice. This blend consists of steamed black Cavendish, Virginias, and white Burley, which have been topped with a smooth combination of a dark cherry, without the sharpness of the typical "maraschino" flavor, and warm notes of vanilla and caramel, for an easy-smoking blend.
Wow! Delicious in flavor and very aromatic. This is real good. I ordered more.
Get any and all of these Missouri Meerschaum blends while you can at this price, bound to rise as the flavors catch on. I've got maybe 35 different flavors of other tobaccos at home already, but since getting my MM 4 pak last week, I've smoke nearly them exclusively, that is when not trying one of my old favorites to compare to MM... MM wins every time!
Just to follow-up my review from before... this is a quality tobacco that I more than enjoyed with morning coffee. Mild flavor that would be good for an apprentice piper like myself. I will buy this again for sure for those time I want a little more subtle smoke compared to say Cult Blood Red Moon which as I mentioned before is my new favorite at the moment. Smoke well my friends and thanks P&C for making quality goods available to this Ozark Hillbilly.
I thought it would be better. But will try again to be fair to this tabacco. Smoked and fell in love with Cult Blood Red Moon for first time an hour and a half before so my expectations were out of wack. MM was good as expected but will try and comment more later.
Good mild smoke.
Oh my! This stuff is the most delicious aromatic I have ever tried! Moist in the bag, so it packs a little tight and you'll want to ease up on the pressure you use packing it, but it lights easily and stays lit, and burns to the bottom of the bowl. Not harsh or hot like some aro's tend to get. Zero tongue bite for me. Delicious aroma in the bag, delicious and tastes like the pouch aroma. Sweet vanilla and the perfect touch of cherry. If you're an aro smoker, you will not be disappointed with this blend.
Great daily smoke: smooth, flavorful, and no bite.
Very mild yet fully pleasing vanilla, cherry, and nutty overtones. No tongue bite. Just might be my new favorite. Cobbers especially should give this a go.
I recently acquired a sample of this excellent blend at the CORPS 30th Pipe Expo in Richmond, Virginia. The Great Dane blend is wonderful. It smokes great, is quite smooth, and has a fantastic taste...not to mention it gets the wife's stamp of approval. All in all a wonderful treat.
Aros usually do not taste as good as they smell in the pouch or when lit. This blend does all three and a new personal favorite. It also has drawn praise from friends and family, who enjoy the room (or outdoor) note. Try a pouch and chances are you will be hooked too.
This is some good stuff ! I really liked the smell then I lit the pipe and man this is some good stuff .
Tried my first bowl of this and found it to be very mild, no bite and lots of nice white smoke. Nice vanilla taste, can't taste the cherry but a definite fruity flavor. A definite recommendation from me, very nice.
I got a pouch of this along with American Patriot to try out. I am relatively new to smoking pipe, but have to say that this is got to be the richest, thickest smoke produced from any of the others I have tried (including Apricots and Cream by C&D). It is very mild and as the others have said, very pleasant vanilla room note. For an Aro, it is very nice and mild enough to not leave the throat feeling parched. I will definitely be ordering another pouch once this one gets finished!
Great Dane was my first pipe tobacco. I wanted to try it due to the cherry and vanilla combination and I was not dissappointed. The vanilla seems to come through clearly in the room note. When I was smoking it with some coworkers they kept saying how amazing the aroma was. Great job P&C!
These guys simply don't miss when it comes to pipe blends. I knew it would be good when I ordered it as I've never been disappointed with any of their tobaccos, but their great dane is especially pleasing. Smooth and flavorful. Great vanilla and cherry flavors but not overwhelming at all. This is easily an anytime of day smoke. Thanks guys, another great release.
Just smoked the first of many more bowls to come. Delicious. Creamy vanilla with subtle cherry in the background.
Met Russ at the Chicagoland pipe show and got my hands on a pouch of this, I thought I was done smoking aros but this blend is superb. Super creamy, very mild vanilla and just a hint of sweet cherry. I didn't want to believe it was a aro but after the 2nd bowl I handed it to my wife and asked her if she tasted cherry, She said yes and started smoking the rest! I finally got my pipe back and packed another bowl. This blend is that good. Not the over the top cherry aro, but a very good creamy cherry tobacco blend for sure. Now my wife wants her own pipe and more of this! Nothing is sacred!!
