When P&C was out of Old Companion once, I picked up a pound of this. It looked like the same type of smoke. The tobacco came very dry, and I hydrated it. The cut is like a slightly more rubbed out MacB's Golden Extra.
Initially I smoked this as delivered and found it bland and hot smoking. Adding some moisture transformed it. It is a fairly simple VaBur on the Bur end of things. It is slightly sweet, but it is mostly tobacco flavored. I did not get any bitter or sour. It is a very pleasant smoke that is easy for me to puff on while driving or working in the office.
If you are looking for an "all-day" smoke that satisfies and does not challenge, this is a great choice. This falls in the same camp for me as Old Companion, Golden Extra, Natural Dutch Cavendish, etc.
