This blend caught me by total surprise a couple years ago.
Upon 1st light, I was totally bombarded by a heavy chalky butter & rum. Something, at that time, I was not use to.
The entire smoke was mild, no bite. I had no trouble keeping it lit and there was no moisture problems or gurgle.
After an ounce, I realized that I had acquired a taste for this blend. Although not really my cup of tea, it grew on me. I think what captured me to this blend is it's lack of (or masked) sweetness. I find myself with an ounce or two a year.
I graded this blend as might trying it again, knowing full well, .........I will.
