Optimum has been one of Peter Stokkebye's most popular blends for over 40 years. This combination of top-notch Virginias, Stokkebye's signature steamed black Cavendish and mellow Burleys is topped with a unique mixture of fruit essences and creamy vanilla to create a singular flavor and aroma. this may well be the Optimum smoke.
I am new to pipe smoking so to try out some aromatics I got the Danish Sampler which is awesome. The Optimum has set itself apart from the others. It is very smooth and somewhat creamy. It burns cool and even. It was difficult to get it lit, but I just blame that on me being a newbie. My wife loves this aroma! She is not the biggest fan of smoking, period, but when I light a bowl of Optimum up she loves it, she says it smells like cotton candy. I do not think it tastes like that but it is good.
