Gauntleys - Red Lace. Quite a full bodied smoke.
There is no messing around where the pouch note is concerned; it's strong, earthy, woody and gives off a true whack of tobacco. This itself is a good representation of the smoke that's on its way!
Once lit the flavour is great. I don't get any undernotes or nuances of anything false, instead what I get is a steadfast tobacco taste. Although this contains quite a large quantity of Perique it doesn't seem to have developed too much of a ketchup/vinegar flavour, it's been well rounded off by the Virginia's grass notes and the smoky nuttiness from the Kentucky.
Nicotine is a above medium for me. It's not too strong, like some blends where inhaling it makes you feel practically drunk!
The room note's good for me. It has good character to it without becoming over the top.
Throughout a bowl I find the burn good. It does so consistently and evenly with the smokes temperature being about medium.
In all, this is a top notch smoke. Four stars.
