Tin description is very accurate on this one. This is a nutty, surprisingly spicy and dry burley. Surprising certainly with regards to the tin scent, which is very sweet and overpowering, bordering on artificial cocoa and figs. Also the room note is a bit incongruous, woody, spicy and smoky; not always appreciated. This is the main weakness of this tobacco: it just doesn't quite come together. The second being the far from reasonable price, which is, as you know, not the fault of the seller... On to the good points, this is probably one of the coolest burning tobaccos ever, and delivers a really quite pleasant smoke with almost cigarry overtones. Probably ideal for breaking in briars. If not for the price and availability issues, I would probably rate this higher. I know that this is a favourite of many pipe smokers, so if you like burleys and get a chance to pick up some of this you should give it a go.
