Tin/Jar Note: Very nice, fragrant mix of dried apple and fermented apple cider.
Visual: Lots of dark Black Cavendish and light Virginias sticking right up front.
Flavors: Lots of natural tobacco sweetness and some nice apple notes.
Smoking Experience: Definitely could use some drying time, fresh out of the tin. It smoked quite well, but needed a few hits of flame to light and keep lit. No tongue bite and a burn all the way to the bottom.
Tobacco Strength: Mild-Medium
Room Note: Pleasant
Conclusion: This was another nice aromatic from Drew Estate. The Apple flavoring is not overpowering, and acts as a great profile.
