E. A. Carey - Black Twist (sliced).
The tobacco appears to be quite a simple ribbon, there's only a small amount of bigger pieces of the wrapper from the twist and no chunky pieces of twist. It's far too moist, but I think the seal on the tin's contributed to this; it was one of the tightest I've met, there was no chance of this one breathing, I about needed a crow-bar to get the lid off!
On to the smoke. This will please anyone who favours a strong tobacco; strong in both taste and nicotine. The taste is slightly fiery and very full; it's almost heavy, and the nicotine amount could be used as anaesthetic prior to major surgery; it has knock-out power, I'd dare anyone to smoke this on an empty stomach! On the plus side the smoke isn't that warm, and it doesn't bite.
Surprisingly, I actually quite enjoy this, it couldn't be a regular smoke for me but I'd still recommend it based on quality.
