|It has been my good fortune to have swapped a tin of ghastly Squadron for this tobacco.
Delighfully sweet tin aroma. A little dry perhaps, but then this tin has crossed the Atlantic.
The tin aroma lasts well into the smoke, which is unusual. Usually (particularly with Peterson's) the tin aroma has little bearing on the lit contents.
Takes a few lights to get the core going and seems to be better smoked at one sitting rather than several. I came back to a half smoked pipe straddling dinner and found it burnt hot, still flavoursome but verging on the bitey.
If you like mild aromatics you'll enjoy this one. Reminds me very much of Davidoff's Blue Mix.
You can't buy this in the UK. If you can I've never seen it, which is a shame as I'd happily include this in my rotation.
