If you've yet to experience Borkum Riff pipe tobacco, you're missin' out. A well established brand known for its mellow, smooth and sweet profiles, Borkum Riff has become one of the pipe industry staples. To get you acclimated with the brand, I've put together a ho-hum of sampler containing all five blends. All delicious and all discounted.
Original- Too bland. No flavor, and not much aroma.
Chery Cavendish- Not a great taste, and those around me said the aroma was "offensive."
Bourbon Whiskey- no favor and not a great aroma.
Black Cavendish- I prefer aromatics it was not to my liking. One who likes non-aromatic tobacco might like it.
Cherry Liquor- Some flavor. But not great.
I really miss Honey and Orange. It had a decent flavor and the aroma was pleasing to most people. I'm very disappointed that Borkum Riff no longer offers it.
