Okay, aromatic fans will love this, natural fans won't.
The mixture's quite appealing on the eye: many different cuts, mainly medium brown, and a couple of large flake pieces. It smells sweet and false, it's this that initially turns me off about it. The moisture's good, so on with the smoke:
With the aromatics, it seems to me that the whisky sits slightly behind. It's not totally lapse, but a vanilla/sweet taste tops it. As this is heavily cased, it causes it to bite. This makes gentle sips more than expedient.
Regarding the natural tastes, I wouldn't say it's a simple VaCav: I think it has quite a healthy dose of Burley included.
The nicotine's medium, and the room-note's nice.
This is good, but not exactly my thing:
