|Flavor: Not much to speak of. Like putting sweet and warm air in your mouth (if that makes any sense). Most of the flavor that is present if PG.
Complexity: None. There are FEW aromatic blends that show any degree of complexity, this isn't one of them. In my opinion, Virginias and Perique are tobaccos that must be enjoyed naturally or with a light topping at the most. I couldn't taste those tobaccos.
Aroma: All you can sense is sweet PG.
Tin/pouch aroma: You can smell the vanilla, rum, honey and coffee with a hing of PG. Good pouch aroma but it doesn't really translate into flavor.
Room note: probably the only good thing about this blend. I received multiple compliments on the room note. Honestly, it was pleasant, but I need more than that to like a blend.
Burning characteristics: Burns cool, few relights. Leaves some gunk at the bottom of your pipe but not excessive.
Cut/Moisture content: Loose cut. I don't necessarily like dry tobaccos but this stuff is soaking wet, it will leave a greasy a greasy/sticky residue on your fingers after touching it. It is so full of PG that it won't actually dry out so leaving out for a few hours before smoking is useless.
Overall: Not something I'd recommend to a more serious pipe smoker. I mostly smoke Balkans and, on occassion, enjoy an aromatic as a change of pace. Even when looking for a change of pace I like my aromatics to have a degree (even if small) of complexity and tobacco flavor. A casing (when properly applied) isn't all that bad but I prefer a light topping. There are few aromatics out there that can offer complexity and tobacco flavor, this is not one of them.
