I ordered 8 ounces of this when Milan had it on sale a month or so ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the aroma when I opened the bag. I detected a rich tobacco scent with a significant fruit (apricot to my nose) backgound. Since this was categorized as a non-aromatic by Milan I was not expecting that much aroma. Since one of my other favorites is Milan's Sunset Rum, I was not put off.
The moisture level was moderate and I loaded up a pipe with a medium pack. It lit easily and I was immediately treated to a pleasant tobacco flavor with the previously mentioned apricot taste coming through without being overpowering. The room scent was identical to the taste.
I have now gone through the initial quantity and ordered more. I have never experienced any bite from this tobacco and it always burns pretty much completely to a nice, dry ash. It smokes equally well in both briar and cob pipes.
It has become one of my daily tobacco choices when I'm in the mood for a no muss/no fuss smoke.
