Mild to Medium None Detected Medium Tolerable to Strong

I disagree with the description that this is a full blend. It's medium in regard to the taste level. The Oriental/Turkish spice, dry wood, and light butter is the star flavor with Cyprian latakia playing a back up role with smokey, woody, sweet notes. The Virginia is citrus sweet with a little grass and earth taste. Has a mild nic-hit. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a consistent flavor. Has a nice after taste. Not quite an all day smoke. The creamy texture of taste reminds me of a milder, little spicier version of MacBaren's HH Vintage Syrian with less latakia, and lack of body and depth. It's a two and half star product, but I rate it at two because of its shortcomings, though I did enjoy the spice.

Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

This starts with a very weird taste to it. Topping/casing or some really funky tobacco. I can't really tell, but I'm gonna go with casing. Taste a little like minty soap. Fades about a quarter of the way in and then I start tasting the tobacco. Mostly Lat with a little Oriental. Can't taste the Virginias or Perique. There is just a little sweetness and a hint of spice. Just don't care for this at all.

Mild to medium in body and taste. Flavoring is mild. Burns well.

Kramer's Pipe and Tobacco - New Mix.

The mix contains a few too many twigs for my liking, is an even split of black and browns, and has a decent moistness.

The initial part of a bowl is easily dominated by the Latakia, and is quite bitter. But it improves a little as it burns down. The Orientals gradually creep in becoming more notifiable, and rounding the flavour some more: earthy and woody. The Perique and Virginia are light, very light, struggling to compete with the Latakia and Orientals. The heat isn't too bad, but it has a propensity to bite me.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: quite heavy.

It improves a 'little', but that won't get it any more than two stars:

Somewhat recommended.
