Description Ref # 4413

Borkum Riff tobacco was first launched in Sweden in the 1960's. It was a roughly cut blend of Burley and Virginia tobaccos, it has been developed with the US pipe tobacco market in mind. It is now manufactured in Denmark by the third largest tobacco producer on the Swedish market.

Borkum Riff Cherry Cavendish is a premium quality, heavily aromatic mix of dark Kentucky and Burley tobacco, enhanced with the soft delicious taste of cherry and just a touch of vanilla. The blend is heavily fermented to give a warm, luxurious smoke with a light sweet aroma.

Borkum Riff Ruby is a Cavendish style blend, made from fermented Burley and Kentucky tobacco. As is the trademark style, the cherry casing is noticeable, but doesn’t totally dominate the taste of the tobacco. There is a pleasant, toasty and sweet taste from the tobacco, which harmonises nicely with the casing. Speaking of which; the cherry taste is pleasantly fresh and they’ve also snuck a hint of vanilla in there, but cherry is very much the focal point of the blend.

This pipe tobacco is mild and smooth, if you haven't tried it I highly recommend it. Slow burning and a great aftertaste. Recommended it with a strong coffee and time for relaxing.

This morning I received 2x50g pouches of this wonderful aromatic tobacco, on opening the pouch and teasing the tobacco loose there was a beautiful sweet scent of bourbon, it provoked me to recall a wonderful evening with a bottle of (Jack Daniels)+ good company :_) Another relaxing thought provoking tobacco :_)

An aromatic mixture of dark Kentucky and Burly Tobacco with flavours of Cherry and a hint of vanilla. The aroma is welcoming with a powerful scent but delicate and sweet, pleasant to smoke with plenty of enjoyment. Medium bodied in taste and flavouring. Ideal for those that seek a sweet aromatic tobacco. Michael - C.Gars Ltd

A bright and rich aromatic burly tobacco, enhanced taste using the finest Kentucky bourbon whiskey that has been matured for several years of developing its full complex flavour. Quite a distinctive aroma, although not full in flavour, It's strength is classed as mild to medium with pleasant room notes. Best smoked slowly to avoid tongue bite. Michael - C.Gars Ltd
