|Its been a long time since i smoked ths one and had forgotten it completely until i found a peice of A4 with my pencil notes on it.
Dryish compared to other aromatics i have smoked;this was a compliant burner strait out of the tin.
Quality was felt - this was not an average sickly sweetshop gloopy confection;it had that quality dunhill tin aroma - simular actually to "dunhill international cigarettes"
Taste:cane sugar or something natural like a maple essense flapjack,,,perhaps tropical mixture(like what you can purchase in health shops by the bag)eg dried bananas,pineapple,coconut,amoretos,,,rum and coconut,,,fruit and nuts,,? whatever..
The brocken flake parts in mine which i identified as having a simular nutty note to "petersons university flake" keeps things serious as a counterpoint to the sweeter elements,and added a dry toasted wallnuts taste to the mix..
Contents appearance:golden yellows,browny,burnt orange,leafy and roughly cut like petal leafs ala potpouri(not ribbons)black cavendish pellets & what appeared to be a brown/grey burleyish/virginia maybe broken flake parts(possibly borrowed from their own "dunhill light flake" maybe?
This did not bite at all like a lot of aromatics i had tried up to that point - i smoked this in a "peterson 305 smooth medium calabash" with the obvious moisture trap system..
If i had to obtain another aromatic which i don't mind every once in a while - this would be a good choice - its well behaved for an aromatic and seemed to smoke OK out of doors in the wind.. (My memory on this appart from my old notes is very vague,,,but i can remember now where i was smoking it and that i purchased it as a lucky dip buy and try it.)
Not too wet in the tin means i could smoke without further ado - aromatics are tricky to smoke - let them dry out too much and the flavouring fades or changes;smoke them too wet & its hello the tongue bitting ferret,,;i got through the whole tin quite quick while the going was good,which was probably a few days so i cannot comment much about shelf life after opening or cellaring etc.
I used to inhale my pipes - and i can remember this when i was cycling to work the week after - ;i felt i couldn't get any fresh air in my lungs - i could breath OK,but there wasn't that usual minty internal depth of air feeling... This went away by the end of the week,but it goes to show how a heavy weekend of puffing and inhaling needs a few days layoff.
I was impressed also by the way it didn't shit my pipe up too much everytime,which mean't i didn't have to keep pulling my pipe apart and swabbing out gunk..It wasn't a gurgler either,,,my pipe still needed a clean at the end of the day but not after every smoke..
Update;i have no idea if this is even available anymore or not but the notes i made on this was when i was predominantly an aromatic man(long time ago);i had not discovered ropes and plugs yet,but i feel it was an OK smoke and reading my notes in my own words has brought back a total recal of a forgotten memory..
