Upon opening the sample-baggie with the appetizing ribbon cut shining with black, brown and orange-to yellow colors, I got greeted by a very natural scent. Decent spice, very tobacco forward, with a touch of citrusy-freshness to it. Only addition this tobacco has is (I suspect) honey and/or Maple-syrup, due to the natural, mild, but present sweetness in the smell. Also Tom Darasz told me they only use those flavorings for all of their 'backys!
Came in perfect smoking condition right away, took the light very well and burns without problems, if not packed too tightly. Consistent flavor.
NoName's taste is far from being "NoName"-ish and has a balanced, "Allrounder"-ish character. Reminiscent of a less-sweet version of MBs Scottish Mixture, NoName offers a decent honey-sweet, aroma with refreshing citrusness to it. Very tobacco-y, with bready notes and hints of hay. A mild molasses-nutiness that's grooving in the back and a "toasted"/fermented feeling to the mouthfeel. I also perceive some earthy tone to it and a hint of stoved-fruits. Never too sweet, and a good leap less sweet than MBs Scottish Mixture, yet very comparable to it.
A tasty blend, that's beginner-friendly, and a fine alternative for the typical "Vanilla-Aro" that most pipe smokers pick up as the first blend. But also the experienced smoker will find this a uncomplicated, easily enjoyable blend, that's very All-Day suitable. Mild to medium in strenght (more mild on the nic-hit), solid medium+ in taste and flavors. I'd say there is a very mild honey-casing to this.
