|In my current run to catch up with tobaccoes that I haven't tried (but should have) since I picked up pipe smoking over 20 years ago, I got this blend a few days ago in a package I had ordered from Dan Pipe.
The Wittkittels comes in a tin more reminiscent of a small can of chili beans. Pulling off the aluminium seal rewarded me with a good VA tobacco smell with a side note of something fruity.
As with all ready rubbeds, stuffing is easy, and lighting a bit hard unless you finely rub a pinch of the tobacco to top off the pipe. It burns slowly and coolly, and the taste is predominantly mellow VA. The room note is also mostly VA tobaccoes with a hint of fruitiness in it; unobtrusive but pleasant.
I could smoke this weed all day; it's got a gentle sweetness, is easy to handle, and won't burn hot. Then again, it's not something to get you excited about either. Good solid tobacco.
