Just like the original, the Match is an uncomplicated burley blend with a sugar topping that tones down the tobacco. The burley is nutty sweet with a touch of molasses and hay. No chemical notes to be found. Both have very little nicotine. Burns clean and cooler than the original and is very similar in taste, though the original is a shade fuller flavored and barely nuttier and sweeter. Both have a consistent flavor. Some smokers have reported that the original could bite, but I did not experience that in either the original or the Match. Both smoke smooth with no harsh spots or bite. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and needs few relights. A very pleasant no-frills all day smoke that’s pretty darn close to the original. I gave the original three stars.
