Lane makes the best aromatics on the bulk market. HG - 2000 is no different, and Lane uses a unique blending style for this pipe tobacco blend. Using all Burley varieties, half of the blend is sent through a Cavendish process. This process adds a touch of vanilla flavor, and it keeps the blend at a mild body. HG - 2000 is intended for an all-day smoke.
My bowl of Lane's HG - 2000 was a showcase of Burley Tobaccos, minus the usual medium body. The natural Burleys bring a subtle nuttiness throughout while the Cavendish adds a gentle touch of vanilla. This would be a great tobacco to start with.
