HU Dockworker in a Sasieni Perfect Ten Canadian.
HU tobaccos are blended by Hans Weidermann. While most HU tobaccos are manufactured by Kolhase & Kopp, Dockworker is manufactured by Dan Tobacco. It is a burley forward blend with Malawi 🇲🇼 Burley leading, backed by Orientals and Virginias. While I don’t have much experience in burley it tastes quite different from Cornell & Deihl burley blends. It is a flake, but comes very wet. All my flakes were crumpled together. Despite being a flake and soggy, it will still yield about 20-22 smokes (for me) from a 50 g tin, so I think they compensate for the water in the tobacco. I purchased this from Estervals Pipe House in Germany 🇩🇪. HU is not available in US.

Oops, entered this in the old July thread; thanks BROB.

The discontinued Dunhill Durbar, a Virginia based non-aro, in a rusticated straight Sav Venere apple I won in the pipesmagazine and SP cartoon caption contest along with a Sav t-shirt some years ago. This is a great little pipe for this sturdy blend.

Didn't even know there was a "Night", only ever had the Morning.
See this is why @mso489 told us to add details 🤣. My fault. It has Burley, Latakia, Oriental/Turkish, Perique, and Virginia. Kind of a strong, full flavored blend. I’d maybe even go so far as to call it an acquired taste for most. I enjoy it straight or as a mixer to give body. Available pretty much anywhere as bulk.
