3 weeks of aging totally changed the flavor profile of this tobacco. The jar note is so strong now, it smells like buttercream cake icing, my wife says the room note is fruity pebbles, and the taste! It's so smooth sweet and creamy!!I don't know how 3 weeks could possibly change a tobacco this much, but I'll be ordering a pound my next paycheck!
In my opinion, this stuff is overrated, got hardly any vanilla in the tin note, or the taste while smoking. This stuff is to be sipped very slowly or it will bite, but in my opinion, is harsh regardless. I won't be buying it again.
I was pleasantly surprised by this flake. I enjoy a lighter aromatic in this checks all the boxes!
First time trying this band and cut and really enjoyed it. I think this type of cut burns well. Good flavor and room note. Will buy more for sure.
Excellent aroma and flavor for a change of pace smoke.
I call this blend my end of the day. Only because I don't to burn out on it to the point I can't taste the hint of vanilla. It would make a great all day Va. base smoke. This is my only my view but I feel just a light rub with this blend and a little drying best suits this one. That's just my view. I would tell anyone this blend is well worth giving a try. I intend to keep it on hand.
Will be getting more.
You have to nurse it a bit but it's worth it. The flake cut smokes way cooler than the loose cut and has way more consistent flavor. Very good aged vanilla-like front root beer or cream soda with little bursts of honey and brown sugar.
I have smoked 20-25 pipe tobaccos. This is by far the best.
