E. A. Carey - Mixed Coconut.
Like a lot of heavy aromatics it's too wet when opened, and with how tightly packed into the tin it is just removing the lid won't be enough to get the water to abate; it has to be fluffed apart to let the air get to it.
The coconut is the heaviest of the flavours (tobaccos included), but not too domineering, surprisingly the vanilla and bourbon don't go unnoticed: they're both present from word go. If anything, from my point of view, the bourbon reduces the rating: I find the harsh alcoholic note conflicts with the smooth, creamy, coconut and vanilla; I'd remove it from the recipe. The tobaccos give a nice flavour, with the Burley being the loudest of the three. Along with the moistness, another common aromatic attribute this shares is tongue bite; ow!
The nicotine's medium and the room-note's quite strong.
This isn't exactly 'bad', but I won't do anymore than somewhat recommend it.
