|Very decorative tin, opening the tin this is a broken flake blend of Virginia, Burley, Black Cavendish and Oriental tobaccos with very little to no aroma, although, the tobacco was fresh.
It took me about three matches in attempt to get the tobacco lit, the aroma was very mild, and a mild taste. The tobacco did taste better as it very slowly burned it's way toward the bottom of the bowl with a very mild sweetness.
As an aromatic pipe smoker IMO this is not really that predominate in an aromatic tobacco. Although, there was no tongue bite or a harshness of the blend. I did detect a little gurgling, but not enough to be too concerned about.
The aroma of this tobacco was a little too lite for my liking, IMHO the Cavendish, Burley and the Oriental tobaccos take away the from the Virginia.
