|I tried this from an old tin that has been open for a while. There seemed to have been a liquor topping at one time, but that has faded. All that was left of it was an underlying sharpness that I didn?t really like. The base Virginias don?t really shine, and there is a weak Oriental leaf trying to dominate. The overall taste isn?t sweet, yet not bitter either. Now and again, the flavor comes up the a ?medium? level, but not for long.
Rather mild, completely uninspiring. The only reason I could see for keeping it around would be to use as a ?working in the yard? smoke when you want something unobtrusive.
