Toffee Brown – Montblanc

It seems that in 2010 Montblanc changed the manufacturer of their ink as well as the design of the bottle. The company’s issued a new, larger (60 ml vs 50 ml) bottle. To be honest I find Montblanc bottle not only nice but also practical, much better than Iroshizuku or Sailor.

The new colours launched in 2010 include:

  1. Burgundy Red
  2. Irish Green
  3. Lavender Purple
  4. Mystery Black
  5. Midnight Blue
  6. Oyster Grey
  7. Royal Blue
  8. Toffee Brown

Toffee Brown flows well, has no detectable odor, and no negative qualities that I discovered so far. The ink is not waterproof. At all. If you like brown inks but need them to be permanent take a look at Platinum Sepia. Toffee Brown dry times depend on the width of the nib you use and the paper you write on (as with all other inks), but it’s rather  wet ink that offers nice kind of shading. In older flex pens it can look very dark while in most regulat pens reddish components are quite visible. Personally I’m not crazy about the color but the facty is Toffee brown is very good ink.
