James Fox - Celtic Mixture.
The first thought to come to mind when I took a whiff of the unlit blend was "dust". Quite a strange sort of smell, one where it's tricky to actually identify anything other than a sort of dusty smell. This is pretty much the same situation with the taste; it lacks any of the sort after characters from the included tobacco's. From the description I was expecting a rich and flavoursome smoke but disappointingly all I got was the same dusty taste I got from the aroma with a sort of perfumey taste that lingers on the palate. This perfume taste actually seems stronger on the tongue and won't go away afterwards; not exactly what I want from a blend!
The nicotine's quite mild in this, it's not 'weak' but it is still a lot less than medium.
The burn's good but that's no redemption for the taste! I don't enjoy this blend at all. It's flat, empty, a bit bitey, too hot and not my bag.
