A very fine cut ribbon, with good variety of colrs evident. This came very moist, absolutely unsmokeable right from the can. The aroma was definitely of an aromatic nature, but not pleasant at all. I couldn't identify it, nor did I want to. After drying it for a few days, and allowing some of the aroma to dissipate, I tried a few bowls. The flavor was sort of a mild crossover of English/Aromatic. I had difficulty picking up the "Havana" leaf, and found Latakia also elusive. There is some Oriental leaf. My impression is that it might do for a hot weather smoke for anyone not seeking a latakia flavor. It might be a good intro for an Aromatic smoker who wishes to try an English blend (assuming it can be found). My can was given to me by a friend who bought it in Europ.
