This blend is well worth a try. It's not everyday you come across an aromatic flavored with GRAPE and whiskey. To tell the truth, I thought the grape/whiskey combo would be terrible.
You can definitely smell a bit of grape in the bag. The tobacco is fine ribbon cut of burley and virginias. Apparently, due to the stoving process I did not experience any tongue bite. The tabacky smoked smooth and cool. I enjoy it because it is NOT a "candy" flavored smoke. It smells and tastes sweet but not perfumy. The casings/flavoring do not overpower the tobaccos. I can't say I taste grape when I smoke it but there is a hint of whiskey taste.
An interesting aromatic for someone who likes tobacco as the dominant flavor. Reminds me a bit of Peterson Irish whiskey. Probably not a good aromatic for someone starting out.
