Tin/Jar Note: Very pleasant, deep, sweet fruit notes. Fig and raisin.

Visual: It is a collection of large, clumped flakes. Cut and broken up by hand, it a lot of various sizes but most are large and stiff, holding their shape.

Flavors: There is some fruity and sometimes citrusy notes, some sweet Virginias and just a hint of the peppery perique.

Smoking Experience: Lots of thick smoke and a decent burn. Required the occasional hit from the lighter, but nothing too ridiculous. The profile was really creamy with just slight hints of spice.

Tobacco Strength: Medium+

Body: Medium+

Room Note: Tolerable

Comparable Tobacco: N/A

Conclusion: It was nice clean smoke. No complaints, but it also just didn’t hit me to say that I need to keep it in the rotation, but I would definitely grab some more if I found it at the right price.

Rating: 3 Stars AKA "When it is on Sale" – Wouldn't pay full retail but would purchase it on sale
