The tin notes I found very nice but smoking the first couple of bowls I found it hard to burn well. I then started to rub it down well and then filled the bowl. It then smoked really well down to a fine ash and the flavour came through without any harshness. Would certainly buy more.
Nice, light and cool smoke. Medium flavor. Nice room note.
The floral, earthy, woody, herbal, vegetative, spicy, very sour Turkish is the lead component. The nutty, earthy, woody, rugged burley is a supporting player. The Virginia offers a tart and tangy citrus and grass in a secondary role. The Dutch toppings include a fair amount of coffee, sweet and sour raspberry, and some vanilla. They sublimate the tobaccos quite a lot, though they don’t totally drown them out. The strength and nic-hit are a couple of steps short of the medium threshold. The taste is medium. No chance of bite or harshness exists here. Barely has any rough notes. The strips easily break apart to suit your packing preference and need no dry time. Burns clean, cool, and a slow with a very consistent sweet and sour, savory, floral, spicy flavor from top to bottom. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires some relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste, and room note. Can be an all-day smoke for the veteran, and repeatable for the less experienced. Three stars out of four.
