Tin/Jar Note: Smokey & plumy.

Visual: A pressed and flaky square of tobacco, it is 90% very dark in color with the rest being spots of very light tan.

Flavors: Smokey, some natural sweetness comes through from the Virginias and the Latakia & Orientals dance around in the background. Never being to overpowering at any time.

Smoking Experience: This tobacco smoked very nicely. Very minimal relights and a full burn, down to a powdery grey ash.

Tobacco Strength: Medium

Body: Medium-Full

Room Note: Strong

Conclusion: Good, nothing special for me, but good. I didn’t get any gurgle or tongue bite and the flavors were nice and balanced. This would be something worth having on hand. And the pressed flake means that it should age quite well.

Rating: 3 Stars AKA "When it is on Sale"
