Quick Note: To view the Pipe Tobacco rating system used, click here.

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
Body: 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.

Rating: 2 Stars AKA "Only when it is Free" - Would smoke a bowl if it was free and had nothing else

I've been wondering about this one.  Some people LOVE it and other reviews are more like yours.

Yea, it smelled amazing, but smoking it was only so-so.
