|Pouch: Dry, bulky. Smell of anise, delicate application, flavored, not cased. Maybe 2% black cavindish, rest light virginia and some burly.
Flame: Burns well, thin bodied dry smoke. No harshness, slight nose tingle. Little tongue bite. Taste of coffee, slight vanilla when the small scraps of cavendish light, no cream at all.
Sidestream: Smooth, cigarette aroma, dry smoke. Not steamy like Lanes. Ever so slight nose tingle. Virginia predominates, the pouch aroma does not translate into the smoke.
Down Bowl: Stays dry, no bitterness. No wetness in pipe. Flavor changes to a spicy tobacco as flavoring burns off. Oriental is great, slight cigarette flavor. Call it tongue bite?
Aftertaste: Tobacco, no bitterness, slight tingle in mouth. Flavor in nose is coffee. Half a hour after and it is a nice peppery taste and light tobacco taste in nose.
Conclusion: Mild strength, mild tasting dry smoke. A nice tasting virginia, not a sweet cavendish or burly. If you like Stokkeby products you may like this one, but for me it is to mild, and I will not buy again.
