Given the price of the package, and that I had previously found the other Radford's blends I have tried to be acceptable, I bought a pouch of this when I saw it.
On opening, the pouch aroma does not really hint at rum; I can make out the Burley with its cocoa note as well as something fruity/honeyish. The leaf felt somewhat dry at first touch, but that turned out to be OK. The mix is about 3/4ths bright tobaccos and about 1/4th Black Cavendish, all in longish ribbons.
Stuffs easily, lights easily, but I find I need the occasional re-light. The taste does not give me any indication of rum, either, but it's nicely sweet and nutty. Nothing out of the ordinary or overly exciting, but solid enough -- as is the room note.
There is a little spice in there, and RRR is not as weak as some other "cheap" blends. I judge this one to be worth the money, at least, and not a bad smoke. Also nothing extraordinary, but at the price asked where I live, I have to at least somewhat recommend; I may buy more of this in the future.
