This tobacco just smells so good. Not to mention that it looks really sweet! This seems like a strong, natural tobacco based off the name, looks and aroma. After reviewing this, I read that it had a licorice flavoring, but I am not sure that I ever really noticed it. I would never have guessed there was any flavoring, and it is not classified as an aromatic either.
