Was excited for this blend. Presentation is nice and no need for drying. Jar note smells like a nutrigrain bar. Flavors are Really dull, and muddled.. kinda get a alcohol note some kind of corn liquor, moonshine maybe. I dunno, it has a decent spicy element to it when you get deeper in but it's not something I'd ever buy again it's too dull and kind of nauseating after a while, like moonshine infused gummy bears on the bus to Carolina cup. Tobacco almost seems of lesser quality. I gifted my buddy the cigar blend I'm still interested in that one.
Pipe Used: Mm country gent, barontini 505

Upon opening the jar (an exciting idea) I could smell something similar to the note of erinmore. I don’t think it’s a topping per say, but more the tobaccos together and whatever is used to saturate them in the press. That’s where the positives end, unfortunately. Lighting I get very little flavor, lots of heat, and almost an acrid note. Dang near burnt my mouth and just didn’t have any type of flavor or qualities I could enjoy. Dumped out the rest of the bowl ... I will revisit after it’s been in the jar longer but I’m not expecting much. Tobacco seems lesser quality than most others, and has a rubbery characteristic. I don’t smoke to save money or make excuses for a product so this one isn’t for me. I guess I need to figure out if something is a C&D product before I buy because I haven’t found a single one I can tolerate.
Pipe Used: One that was nearly ruined.
Age When Smoked: Direct from jar
