|I received as a free sample.
The most concise way I can put it is that this is what Boswell's Northwoods wishes it was.
The description says "naturally aromatic". Not sure what that means but this does have some kind of topping sort of a whiskeyish rummy, vanilla sort of thing. But it is not over done and does what topping should do....improves and enhances vs covering up cheap tobacco or disguising the rich "real" flavors.
Whatever's in it it's fabulous.
A little moist and benefits by drying and then burns properly without excess moisture.
Big flavor. Much bigger than Northwoods which I'm using as a reference give that it too is a topped "English Blend". But Bostonian is like Northwooods with a amplifier and subwoofer.
I've been smoking a lot of English blends lately with Lancer's slices being my current fave. But I get a itch or Bostonian that only it can scratch sometimes.
It's also excellent to mess around with for blending. I've found a bit more latakia and some perique make an excellent blend even better. Bordering on amazing.
Anyway....a terrific blend which I can't recommend enough to English Blend and some aromatic smokers alike.
