W.O. Larsen Signature Pipe Tobacco employs Virginias, Mexican Burleys, and Black Cavendish tobaccos to create a medium-bodied profile that's brimming with flavor. Notes of caramel, strawberry, and vanilla characterize this highly complex, extremely enjoyable tobacco. Gorgeously presented in a special W.O. Larsen Collector's Edition Tin.
“Larsen Signature comes sealed in a mylar bag in the tin. The moisture content is about perfect out of the bag, maybe leaning towards a bit too damp. Should be even better after being opened in a couple of days.
The tobacco is a combination of rather coarse flake and ribbon cut with a wonderful aroma. Blend looks and smells dark. Aroma from the opened bag is nice…rich vanilla and fruit notes over the tobacco. The flake/ribbon cut doesn't pack particularly well and doesn't light easily. The standard two-match effort will work, though. Burn is about average, not too hot and does need a bit of care to keep it lit for a while. It is listed as a “Medium” strength and I would classify it as a lighter than that. No bite.
I would put it above Peterson’s Connoisseur’s Choice and Deluxe Mixture in taste and strength. The Signature blend delivers great flavors and really nice room presence. Well worth the price. I’m looking forward to trying other Larsen blends.”
