|Tin Aroma: Absolutely superb; like a confectioner's shop but not sickly or overpowering. It's a melange of chocolate, nuts, fruit and vanilla.
Room Note: Very much like the tin aroma; this has 'em drooling! I'm sure if everybody smoked this the antis would never have latched onto this passive smoking lark! The aroma is like the mixture described above but also warm and homely with it.
Packing: Although described as a ribbon cut, I found it to be more of a wild cut and was thus a snap to pack, especially using the pinch method. Moisture content was perfect being just a tad on the dry side but nice and springy. Packing wise, this tobacco is excellent for beginners.
Lighting: The weed lights easily and well with one charring light, a firm tamper and relight.
Appearance: As previously mentioned, it's a bit like a wild cut with diamond shaped pieces of black cavendish with bright, golden strands interlaced with medium and dark brown leaf. A very attractive cavendish blend where one can clearly mark the burley and virginia complonents.
Smoking: Very flavoursome indeed with fruit, nut and vanilla topped off with a chocolote high note, intermingling with a good solid tobacco base. Burns suprisingly slow and cool. It also burns evenly to a fine white ash with very little dottle. However, if you're tempted to puff hard due to a burst of flavour it can bite and leave an overpowering aftertaste so it's better to sip and savour this one! However, things do deteriorate in the last third of the bowl. The flavour becomes remeniscent of burning woodchips. This is a phenomenum I have experienced with practically every Exclusiv blend I have smoked, but not Kohlhase, Kopp and Co. I'm not sure what causes it; maybe it's flavour overload. This blend is somewhat mild in the nicotine department so don't expect a headbanger if nicotine is your recreational drug of choice!
Pros: Wonderfully aromatic taste and smell. Burns slow, even and cool. Very tasty indeed.
Cons: Flavour can deteriorate and the weed can bite. Can leave an aftertaste.
