This is a disappointment.

There's so much to like about this blend.

Great sized 50g tin (feels bigger than a UK tin), a very slight mellow aroma from bright coloured tobacco strands and good moisture level straight from the tin.

But therein lies the problem : by 'very slight' I mean the merest whiff of something and that does not bode well for the taste.

Fact is, there isn't any, taste that is. None at all. At first I thought it was my loading, then the pipe I used. I chose my big old favourite olive wood German pipe with big old fishtail acrylic stem. It didn't help. It was utterly tasteless.

In desperation I dragged out my old corn cob, and yes, with the same result.

What a shame. I've got the best part of 50 grams of this. If it wasn't so well presented I'd suspect it was a 'filler' of some kind - like a mixing tobacco. It desperately needs a topping of some sort if not it needs cutting with something else.

Pipe Used: My favourite German Olivewood, corn cob

Age When Smoked: New

Purchased From: Dan Pipe, Germany
