To me the smoke had substance or weight on my tongue. It was a little hard to keep lit at first, but after going for a bit kept burning. No bite whatsoever, and I like to pull long, deep, frequent puffs. A hint of some type of fruit... Sloe perhaps? ... Read More

I have been skeptical about this blend due to the reviews. But then, I got my hands on 2 Tins and after one long bowl, I will say that this mixture is pure bliss. The casing is light and doesn't cover the flavor of the fine tobaccos. A good change of... Read More

Not for me, this one. I did dry it a little from the pouch and it lit and stayed lit well. However, from the first taste, all through the bowl it was sour and really unpleasant. It was so unpleasant that I can't bring myself to try it again. I could ... Read More

Way to wet and goopy to smoke when arrives. Bad tongue bite!!! Will not stay lit. Foul odor from the tin. Well, will give it a try again in 3 years, after aging.

This is very unusual tobacco. Very wet on opening. A little hard to keep lit. I will let it dry and try again. Tin note is very hard to define and does not really match flavor in pipe. Overall, a little harsh and not my cup of tea.

I have to admit, at first after a few bowls I put this blend aside. I really did not like it due to the fact that it had an almost black liquorish taste. But after coming back to it, wow. It is full of flavor. And such a unique flavor, it does not ta... Read More
