Visual: Fairly large flakes of tobacco leaf. Lots of dark and light colored leaf.

Flavors:

Smoking Experience: Burns very hot, but also very well. It starts out fairly flat, but the flavors do rise up. There is a lot of nuttiness from the burley and a fair amount of hay notes. The Virginia eventually starts to kick in with some nice sweet notes. And I can detect slight hints of the rum casing. Towards the end I got a little gurgle as well, but it wasn’t horrible.

Tobacco Strength: Mild-Medium

Body: Mild-Medium

Room Note: Pleasant

Comparable Tobacco:

Conclusion: Nothing great to me. Probably be a great option first smoke of the day because of how mild it is. Flavors were there and not bad, just a bit on the mild side. Not a bad tobacco, but there is so much more I would rather smoke.

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