Let me start out that I’m pretty new to smoking pipe tobacco, about a year, I bought this tobacco because I thought it might be good intro tobacco, especially to aromatics. I haven’t smoked a lot of different tobaccos so don’t hold this review as coming from a connoisseur of tobaccos. However, I did like this tobacco, the room note I think wasn’t too noticeable. The taste, although light, was lightly sweet. It is definitely growing on me as I smoke more of it. Not sure if I will get anymore of it yet.
The smell as I opened the tin was strong and inviting, but smoking it seemed to lose some of its strength. I might age it a bit and see what happens.
All in all, an enjoyable smoke.
Pleasant flavor, burns well, and my wife doesn't mind the aroma. I will be ordering more.
