McConnell: Mature 50g

Product Number: 003-042-0019

Using what is, as far as we can tell, the identical ready-rubbed, high-quality dark Virginia, they've topped this smoke with a sweet, exotic star anise aromatic.

This tobacco gave me a great caramel flavor, its defiantly not an all day smoke but for those certain occasions it fits in, its well enough invited
