The 125th anniversary of the Halberg family as owner of Mac Baren Tobacco Company is what lead to the creation of the Halberg tobacco line. The 4th generation of Halberg, Henrik Halberg, took great effort in this job to create a tobacco line which would serve as a highlight of 4 generations of tobacco manufacturers. From 3 continents, the best Virginia and Burleys have been selected with great care. One part are cut into a ribbon cut, one part is bigger pieces of fine Virginia as a cross cut and finally the last part is pressed and cut into small pieces of flake. Finally all tobaccos are gently hand blended into the final blend. The nose is greeted by a scent of fruit enchantingly combined with vanilla notes. When smoked the perfect balance between natural tobaccos, subtle flavour notes and cross cut Virginia flakes create a slow burn in your pipe and an exquisite aromatic smoking pleasure.
Strength: Mild to Medium
Flavor: Mild to Medium
Taste: Mild to Medium
Room Note: Pleasant
The tin note was of berries and citrus. On the charring light the flavor was of the berries. On the true light a citrus flavor was added. About a quarter of the way through the bowl there was an earthy taste that started to come through along with a hint of vanilla. A little bit further into the bowl the sweetness from the Virgins was apparent. The combination of all the flavors made for a great smoke. Halberg Yellow burned well leaving a light gray ash at the bottom of the bowl. I would recommend this blend to any pipe smoker and it also has a nice gift tin.
