Pretty much what I expected.
This blend is like an old friend. It has a nice anisette and sugar topping. The room note is sweet and “grandpappy” Pipe smellin’ it is all Burley and few ingredients, that’s it! I actually like it better than the Aromatic version. The cut is kind of strange but it is really easy to pack and light. This stays in my rotation consistently.
I was hooked on the Aromatic version of Sir Walter Raleigh for months! I absolutely loved the stuff. I went on tobacco reviews and was amazed at how many people wrote that they liked the regular version better. So, I bought a pouch of it to be on the safe side. If I did not like it it was no big loss. When I opened the pouch and took a sniff I was disappointed because the pouch aroma is kinda weird, like a Vegetable smell with sugar. But, the more I read up on it that was the norm. I packed the granola like substance in my Dr.Grabow Omaga and did the char lite and tamped it down and puffed away. When I tell you a was amazed...... I was in heaven!!!! It kind of tasted like a black jellybean, not a lot, just in the background. I tasted sugar and star spice..... when I smell the room note it smells like the old pipe smell that I remember from the late 70s from family members long gone. Very reminiscing!!
I just drop a cube into my pipe until full. Sometimes I scoop it out of the pouch with my pipe. A lite tamp and fire it up. Taking it slow I find a nutty sweetness. Very pleasant and satisfying. Works well with blending.
