|being new to pipe smoking my experience is still limited when comparing to other products. so i will just give my views on this one by it's self.
the smell when you open the package is nice, not overpowering like some aromatics can be. just a nice smooth but sweet smell ...
while packing my pipe the only minor issue i had with the tobacco was that it has a few (not to many) hard peices of stem or other sorts in it that must be picked out...
first impression while smoking it, was that it was real sweet. but real mild. about mid bowl it got a bit stronger but still kept the sweet 'creamy' taste to it ... not sure if i can say coffee taste ..
after a few more bowls of it. the sweetness hasn't gone ... and it still tastes good to me, nothing to spicey in it or to 'heavy' .. seems like a great tobacco for smoking all day long without the flavors overpowering you.
in 3 different style pipes i have yet to get a 'hot' tounge, as i am still learning that is fairly common with me and smoking but this one seems to just not do it.
