|I actually managed to smoke a full tin of this blend, back when I didn't have the experience to call it a day and ditch a package of tobacco that is no good.
Well, OK. The tobacco that went into the tin probably was not all that bad. But the flavouring...
Plum is OK. So is Rum. Unfortunately, the blenders of this concoction went not only over the top, but also around the courtyard, took a Saturn V to the moon and back and probably were trying to prepare for a trip to Mars. I'd love to smoke whatever they were actually smoking while putting this beauty together. So long as it's not this blend.
To the nitty-gritty, this 'baccy is actually not bad in leaf quality, but the double dose of aromas somehow grates. Makes me wish the blenders could have decided on one or the other. The result is a very hot burn that loses all its aromatic characteristics (even when using filters...) after a few puffs and leaves a fading taste of cheap tobacco that probably does not do justice to the leaf actually used.
Unfortunately, that is the impression I got back when, and still get from a recent sample I got to try thanks to a novice to whom this "blend" was recommended by a "tobacconist."
