The same as our Widecombe mixture only in aromatic form for those who prefer that 'extra' flavour.

McGahey - Widecombe Aromatic.

Of late, I've been making a conscientious effort to try and review some of the lesser reviewed/un-reviewed blends. This is one of the latter, so there's no other reviews for me to read up on first!

This is a slightly perplexing blend; the aroma from the pouch is indicative of a strongly flavoured blend; the only inaugural word to come to my mind was 'herby'. I'm confused by it as it's a lot more citrusy tasting than herby and not as strong as I expected it to be.

I was expecting, from the description a deep and rich tobacco taste; smoky, grassy and sweet. What I received was a bit clumsy and crowded. It doesn't have anything REALLY bad about it, it's just a bit busy and it doesn't work with the added taste; although the extra flavours aren't too strong in their own right they're strong enough to clumsily mask any natural flavour.

As the mixture's quite coarse I was anticipating a slow burning tobacco; that didn't come to fruition, it's a lot faster than I wanted!

I hate to sound like a whining brat but there's another low point; after a smoke I'm left with a lingering taste of lemons in my mouth!

Aside from the fact that subjectively speaking I don't like this, I think it has a fair few good points. These good points aren't enough to raise it up from two stars though.

Somewhat recommended.
