Tin/Jar Note: Smokey, Hay, Plum
Visual: A very dry mix of irregularly cut tobaccos, all a mostly muddled brown in color.
Flavors: Smokey and very latakia forward. The Burley is also right in front. No sweetness, just natural tobacco notes.
Smoking Experience: As dry as this tobacco looked, it wasn’t too dry and smoked very nicely.
Tobacco Strength: Medium-Full
Room Note: Tolerable
Conclusion: This tobacco is perfectly in the higher end of the spectrum for me. It is pretty strong from the Latakia, but still has plenty of character. Lots of natural tobacco flavors and a nice burn.
