I am trying very hard to refrain from reviewing tobaccos. Since I sell pipe tobacco on my private website, I actually think it is a conflict of interest, but after seeing the lone review of this blend by McQueen, I just had to respond because my impression is totally opposite. I absolutely loved this smoky sweet compilation of exceptional Cyprian Latakia, spicy and mild Orientals and flue cured Virginia leaf that has that famous and delightful Germain special processing. It was smooth, refined and especially unique with the bit of rum added to the presentation. Bite? Hardly! Typical of all Germain tobaccos, this one baby oiled the palate rather than set fire to it! Delightful weed in every sense. Similar to St. Ives, not hardly. Both have some Latakia in it but the extract in St. Ives is like apple/plum where this one is definitely rum and the Latakia is much stronger in its presence.

This is a pretty nasty tasting aromatic by Germains. I believe it to be St Ives just in tin form. A strange goopy topping that tastes of curry almost. Bites like hell too.
