WILKE No. 515

This is the blend smoked by Basil Rathbone, Wilke's famous No. 515. A blend of ribbon cut Virginias and toasted Black Cavendish, or as the Wilke sisters described it: " exotic tobaccos aged in a rare Jamaica Rum - smooth, mild with a delightful aroma".

WILKE No. 515

  • Jamaican rum is richly sweet, lightly creamy with a little spice and is the star flavor. You will taste a light honey note from the gold cavendish from time to time, and some vanilla from either a topping or the lightly sugary black cavendish or both (I suspect both is the correct answer). I occasionally get a hint of nutty, molasses sweet burley, but it's strictly condimental, as is the Virginia, which is slightly grassy when you notice it. Has very little nicotine. May need a slight dry time because it is moist, but drying it will lose you some of the rum, so you'll have to decide how you want to play it. Burns a tad slow, but needs to be sipped to lower the moisture content in the bowl, and the tongue tingle that can arise for the super steam engine puffer. Shouldn't bite anyone. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, but no dottle. Requires some relights. Has a very nice after taste and room note. An easily repeatable, comfortable all day smoke.
