A terrific aromatic for everyday

Dan Tobaccos make a wonderful range of tobaccos and Blue Note is their execution of a terrific Vanilla aromatic.  Opening the tin, the blend of tobaccos looks like any number of quality Vanilla aromatics but the nose reveals the light fruit scent along with the Vanilla topping.   Its natural to compare this blend to Lane's 1Q and the comparison is deserved but they are different blends though I like to think of Blue Note as an upscale 1Q.  They share many of the same great qualities but Blue Note is slightly more refined. slightly more delicate but just as smooth and relaxing.  The fruit topping is light and mostly disappears at the match.  The vanilla shines through as does the underlying quality of the tobacco.  It remains consistent from the top to the bottom of the bowl which may make it sound monotinous but it finds its groove and its a great groove.  Highly recommended.

Sweet Blue Note

This tobacco is a mild blend of golden Virginias, that posses a naturally high sweetness, mixed with a mild Black Cavendish.  The flavor of fruits, Bourbon and  Vanilla are in this extraordinarily blend.  This is a Dan Tobacco of Germany product.  The Dan Tobacco Company's catalogue describes it thusly:  "Bright golden Virginia leaf with a high content of natural sweetness is blended with rich aromatic extra smooth Black Cavendish and then put aside to mature for several weeks.  A fresh flavour composition of exotic fruits and a whiff of mellow vanilla crowns this extra soft and fragrant mixture with 'that certain something' a very special flair . . .  as does the 'blue notes' in Blues, Jazz and Pop music." I enjoy it as a desert pipe tobacco after an evening meal.  It does not have a high nicotine content.  The room note is very nice.  I recommend it.

A natural chocolate

I found this blend to be a definitive chocolate blend.  The flavor was about 40/60 Hershey's Dark Chocolate candy bar and their Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate.  I have usually found that if the blend favors dark or unsweetened chocolate that it is inherent to the tobaccos blended rather than an added casing.  This means that the flavor will last until the bottom of the bowl.  If it is just a casing then the casing sugars of the bottom of the bowl will get distilled away with the heat of the top burn.  This flavor lasted!  No goop at the bottom also indicates very little casing.  Great job Dan!  I will be adding it to my chocolate stock.

Blue note hard to keep lit?

I am new to smoking a pipe and i must admit that i love this blend. this is my first purchase besides from my local tobacconist.


I do have a question though, it seems as if this tobacco is hard to keep lit.

I see the cherry in my peterson but Its weird my tobacconists' tobacco seems harder to light but it stays lit. This stuff seems to light quickly and then keep going out (more than normal)

I have been smoking for awhile now (few months) and I dont know. Is this a novice mistake? I have tried packing the pipe multiple ways and multiple pressures. 

If anyone has an answer please email me;
