For a brief time, this blend usurped Black Knight as my favorite local tobacco. It's still a favorite and I'll probably flip flop 4-5 more times throughout my lifetime, but I really like this blend.
Light in color and ribbon cut, with a pouch note that is mildly oak(y) with a minted whiskey smell (likely coming from the topping).
The flavor of the light blue, thick smoke, is very nutty upfront with a caramel taste very faint throughout. Truth be told, predominant flavors here are the nutty burley playing off sweet cavendish, and some oak flavors. The topping is not so much in the taste but more in the room note, which smells pretty much like Irish Cream as the tobacco burns.
Speaking of burning - take care to puff slowly on this one... I am a "hot" smoker and I've gotten quite a bit of bite out of this one. It's really hard as it tastes great and those giant clouds of blue smoke are as addictive as the nicotine within...
As far as tobacco strength, this blend is a pussycat. It's a great morning tobacco and it won't leave your head swimming after half a bowl.
