E. A. Carey - Old Scotch.

I didn't enjoy the first five minutes of this, the words 'boring aromatic' came to mind, but after a little while it became rather good; I wouldn't say great, but it's worth three stars.

Inside the pouch is a very rugged looking mixture, mainly medium brown, but there's one or two black pieces. The aromatic side comes over well in the pouch-note, an easily labelled whisky aroma.

For me, this can bite a touch, but everyone varies with that so I'll list some more useful features: Although the whisky's definitely present in the smoke, it's not too strong. And then there's the tobacco flavours, these are superb. Although the pouch contained only a small proportion of Black Cav', the whisky addition works alongside the Virginia to create a brilliant sweetness that more than fills the void. The Burley gives a prominent note to the smoke, it really fills it out.

The nicotine's just below medium, and the room-note's very enjoyable: this smells more like a pure blend as opposed to an aromatic.

An easy recommendation:

Three stars.
