|I received this tin by mistake as I was supposed to get the Peterson 2013 edition. How glad I was to get this tin!
Upon opening the tin, there is a full bouquet of different fruity fragrances that feels absolutely amazing. Also, I felt a sort of a creamy/vanilla smell.
The cut is ribbon, coarse and broken flakes.
I especially enjoy this type of coarse cutting as the tobacco will burn slower and cooler, but you may have to relight once or twice, which is fine by me.
As I am not a big fan of aromatics, I thought I would like it, and that's pretty much it. The smoke is just excellent; the different Virginias are delicious, the black cavendish is felt only very slightly as a taste weakener for the Virginias I guess. This way the fruity/creamy taste is more imposing. I suppose the burley is there for a bit of a kick and some dryness.
My first highly recommended aromatic tobacco and goes to my favourites!
