My tin had Made in Denmark overstickered by Made in Germany indicating its current origin. The mostly redish ribbon cuts were intermixed with some lighter golden VAs and a few almost black pieces. I got improved smokes by reducing the intital moisture content but in doing so, a much faster burn rate resulted than my normal VA flakes. However, overall, we still maintained a cool smoke without bite. The tin and room aromas are slightly fruity but not sickening sweet. Some nuttiness from the Burley or casing was evident but as with most aromatics that I try, little true, tobacco taste came thru. This blend was also much weaker than my preferred choices and I remained unsatisfied even after long smokes in large bowled pipes. Back to my hi test Flakes again.
