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.
