As I have noted in the blend notes, this now has Gallaher Ltd on the pouch and is now called special Virginia ready rubbed due to new legislation.
Anyways this is the same stuff as it was when it was labelled Benson and hedges, a beautiful mixture of Kentucky, but let and Virginia with a caramel like flavour which when it is mixed with the tobacco, creates an almost ginger biscuit like taste and aroma.
Quite a mellow smoke, with a good dose of strength but it never overwhelms, it's a slow burner and although it is smokeable straight from the pouch I don't think a little dry time would be detrimental if that is your thing.
The room note is delicious, that ginger biscuit/caramel note transfers well into the room note as it does whilst smoking, either way the room note shouldn't offend even the most sensitive of company.
4 stars earned, perfect for when you want a nice medium smoke without a sledgehammer of strength and mildly aromatic.
