Newminster - No.403 Superior Round Slices
Wow! That is good.
Received a sample with my order and I am pleasantly surprised at what a delicious and interesting blend this is. The pouch note is inviting, sort of figgy pudding. This packs easy and smokes with a slightly grassy/hay note backed up with a rich dark fired Kentucky that plays throughout the entire bowl. My first bowl, I did receive a good tongue bite because I was pulling too hard,I learned my lesson there. Also, the wife did not complain about the room note, so I guess that is a compliment!

I ordered this based on the reviews seen here and I am glad I did. The pouch note is enticing, a strong canvas of dark fired Kentucky followed with a hint of raisin and a smidgen of vinegar. The fine shag cut makes this easy to pack and light,it burns cool and a little fast if you don't pack it fairly tight. The flavor and body are deep and rich pure tobacco, with a pleasant room note. Definitely an everyday smoke for me.

Deep rich smoky goodness, with very little bite. A little on the one dimensional side as far flavor goes,however if you let an aromatic dry out completely and rub it out to almost dust and mix it in with a bowl, you can have some fun tuning your smoke to your mood.
