Nice moist ribbon cut from the pouch, a very dark looking blend overall. The smell from the pouch is sweet, creamy, and a little fruity - a pleasant "grandpa tobacco" type smell. Maybe a bit of whisky nose, but pretty faint for me. Had a few problems getting it lit, but once I did it burned well. The sweetness was strongest at the start, but came and went to a lesser degree throughout the bowl. Only mildly aromatic in my opinion. A stronger smokiness developed about halfway through, and I enjoyed the last half of the bowl more because of that. No bite, and it didn't burn especially hot. Mild to medium nicotine hit - definitely noticed it at the start of the bowl, but it didn't knock me out by the end.
Overall, a good middle-of-the-road smoke which was pleasant but had nothing to really make it stand out. 2.5 stars, rounded down to 2.
Pipe Used: A variety of briars, and a Mr. Brog's oak
