I never smoked the original, though when I compare the reviews at TR.com to the Match I’ve been smoking, they seem to be similar in regard to taste, though not the cut of the tobacco if that description is accurate. The tobacco in the Match is cube cut, short ribbon cut, and coarse broken flake. The cherry birch topping is mild and pleasant. There’s also a little apple topping, too. The Virginia is a little grassy with a touch of citrus as the base of the blend. The black cavendish is sugar sweet with a very mild hint of vanilla. The burleys are nutty, molasses sweet with a light sharpness and earth, and offers the most noticeable tobacco taste in this blend, though all the tobaccos here play second fiddle to the toppings. Has very little nicotine. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns slow, cool and though it will require a few relights, leaves virtually no moisture. Has a consistent flavor, and decent after taste. Not quite an all day smoke.
