Since I don't like pouches, I bought Germain's Celebration in a 100 g tin.

The ribbon cut mixture is of mostly light brown color with only a few darker leafs. The tin note is sweet and woody as well as slightly tart with hints of honey and plum, the later probably from some Perique.

Filling your pipe is quite easy, in doing so I prefer the Frank method. A single charring and true light will usually do the job.

It's a mild smoke. From the tin note I had expexcted a sweetish, fruity taste. However, enen though there is a distinct honey sweetness to the smoke, especially at the first half of the bowl, I can't detect much fruitiness. The Virginias in the blend give it a tangy aftertaste, the Perique a certain acidity and slight bitterness, and the Latakia and Orientals some peaty smokiness, which dominates the finish. It's an interesting mixture. Enjoyed with leisure, there's no tongue bite at all. It burns down evenly with only a little moisture, leaving some powdery ash.

The room note is rather indistict with only a little sweetness to it, but rather a natural tobacco smell.
