Tin/Jar Note: Sweet cream, of course. But there is also a fruit note. Smells like a blackberry cream candy.
Visual: A fluffy compilation of mainly light colored tobaccos. Wide, ribbon cut with a few clumps from the cutting.
Flavors: There is no fruitiness, but it is creamy and smooth. There is also a little liquor bite on the tongue.
Smoking Experience: Actually got a little gurgle in the bowl with this one, but it burned well.
Tobacco Strength: Mild-Medium
Room Note: Pleasant
Comparable Tobacco: Creamier than any other that I can think of.
Conclusion: Smells great and smokes great, but I wasn't a fan of the overall profile. It was kind of a mix of sweet & creamy notes, with a smokiness and it just never hit my palette quite right. Also, it produced some bad gurgling, even using the DE Tsuge, with it's filter bowl. Not unsmokable, but not something I need to get more of.
