Bought in a 40 grams pouch in Switzerland, AD 2013, at average price for common drugstore tobaccoes, quite cheap. Thin cut and less moist than in usual EM, when opened smells like EM, but with a sort of light chemical scent inside...
Aroma: classic EM aroma, with less latakia and less orientals spicy flavour than usual, but surely there is something desturbing inside, seemingly a bad casing.
Taste: not the best of EMs, barely decent. At the beginning it's apparently weak, but half an hour later opinion is changed...
Room note: lighter than classic EMs, not bad.
Burning: much faster than usual EMs (Dunhill Standard, i.e.), the cut is too thin.
Maybe the danish way to make an English Mixture... it's cheap (A LOT cheaper than usual or premium EMs) and not so bad, but classic mixtures are an other world! Try something else, and better...
Age When Smoked: days
Purchased From: drugstore, Switzerland
