Tin/Jar Note: Very slight smoke note, with lots of fig/plum notes and some very nice natural tobacco aromas.
Visual: A finely shredded ribbon, with about a 50/50 mix of dark and light tobaccos.
Flavors: Mostly woody and nutty notes, but there is a hint of sweet, dark fruit on the finish. There is also the slightest tinge of smokiness from the Latakia and some spice from the Oriental.
Smoking Experience: This tobacco smokes very cleanly, and need no extra fire.
Tobacco Strength: Medium
Room Note: Tolerable
Conclusion: Very good smoke, with a perfect burn. This is a great tobacco for those that like a natural tobacco with no other flavoring or too much sweetness from Virginias.
