The birch taste is not nearly as pronounced or as chemical-like as it was in the original, where I found it to be overwhelming. The vanilla is slightly more obvious here. The burley is lightly nutty and earthy, and provides a little molasses hit, all of which were basically missing from the previous version. Overall, it’s a little milder and much smoother ribbon cut, and doesn’t bite (another failing of its predecessor). Burns well with a consistency of flavor that doesn’t vanish at the finish. A pleasant all day smoke. As a Match, it gets four stars.
