Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Medium Tolerable

This tobacco seems to have been wrongly labelled as Bull Dog in this review. It is actually a product of Dan Tobacco and should have been classified as a blend under Dan Tobacco. Having said that, I am surprised that early reviewers commented that the tobacco smelled and tasted "soapy". Absolutely not so in my view. This is indeed a good blend that gets more interesting as one smokes along. It is not unlike other Oriental/Turkish Virginias. One that comes to mind is Drew Estate's Meat Pie which contains a fair amount of Latakia. This 'guy' is quite spicy especially if the smoke is released through the nostrils and seems, IMO, to contain a small amount of Latakia though the makers do not (expressly) state so. There is also a background hint of pleasant sweetness from the Virginias. It lights well and stays lit for the duration of the smoke. It does not burn hot and has no tongue bite - highlights of its mildness. It's nicotine content is moderate and may not satisfy those looking for a strongly favored full Virginia with a high nicotine content. Yet it is very satisfying for those looking for something mild - for which reason I will rate it as four stars.

Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

this is more as a first impression. when i opend the tin(1-2years of age) it did smell soapy. it's says it's a golden flake but it does contain some darker leaf and was abit on the dry side.

i now smoke mostly VA/PER blends. i don't like aromatics anymore but this taste as it smells, soapy. for the first 20-30min it taste real soapy, but after that VA and Oriental comes forward and the soapiness goes in the background. the taste keeps changing and doesn't burn to hot.

i like it, i'll be buying a tin again for aging. it really is change in taste than my standard VA blends.

Pipe Used: clay pipe

Age When Smoked: 1-2

Mild to Medium Very Strong Medium to Full Tolerable to Strong

Here's one I had forgotten about. Then I was thinking about all these references to soap in Gawith reviews. Well, folks, if you want to know what soap scented (and presumably flavored, though I don't eat it) tobacco really smells like, this is it. Burning soap, mmmmmmm. And 0 nicotine. This dog has no place in my kennel.

Medium Strong Medium Tolerable

This was tolerable once it burned partway thru the bowl, but at first I thought I had my mouth washed out with soap. (Not that I have ever experienced this - Mom never caught me.)

Never found this with another tobacco - it tasted soapy.
