I’m hardly qualified to do any sort of an expert review as I’m unsure of the correct verbiage or to comment on the nuances of flavors. What I am sure is this is a very enjoyable full flavored English comparable to Plum pudding or Nightcap. I enjoy this in the evening just before retiring smoked in a German clay find the experience to be quite relaxing. This is my first time purchasing from tobaccopipes.com and the product was delivered within the promised timeframe and in good order. That being said, this certainly won’t be the last time.
I really like this one after the second or third bowl. At first, I thought I would hate it but now I find myself reaching for it often. A full smoke with an interesting and unique taste that I think people will either love or hate. Hard to compare since I have had none like it before. It is a smooth smoke and doesn't burn hot. Give it a try!
The product description is very very accurate and the only thing I noticed is that the strength seemed to vary from puff to puff which I actually liked. I would buy this again but can't help wondering why the tin had no printing but was just shiny metal.
