|Acquired for smoking in the matching pipe. In spite of the friendly ribbon cut the results were worse yet than with other tobaccos that I've tried with the torpedo, the record time without relight being around sixty seconds. For evaluation purposes I've thereafter used a number of more, eh, regular pipes.
The tobacco emits a strong Irish Creamy note. Definitely both vanilla and cherry in the casing. Surely we've all smoked a hundred bulk aromatic blends similar to this. Nothing distinctive here. The manufacturer's sticker mentions Carolina Bright, Old Belt Virginia, Kentucky, Black Cavendish & Syrian Latakia.
Trying to figure out what's so masculine about this tobacco the closest I've come to is a fire dept. Smoked in even the slightest breeze of wind the tobacco tastes of nothing but a sun-burnt rubber hose. I imagine those are common at the fire station, therefore masculine. Supported by the fallic tin art for sure. But hey, I learn lads wax their chest hair nowadays - eventually a tobacco without any nicotine to speak of is masculine as well.
There is no way I can finish the tin. Fortunately there is still room in the gallon jar that I dump all the tobaccos I get from the mother-in-law for Christmas in. When the world runs out of tobacco I'll still have that jar to go to.
