McGahey - Bovey Orange.

I expected to hate this, I ordered it by mistake so thought what the hey, I'll give it a try anyway. I opened it this morning solely to use it up, it's knocked me a bit off kilter!

The pouch note was the first thing to suggest it wasn't going to be as bad as I expected; it's orangey and sweet but not too strong. The mix is course and chunky with a few big leaves of tobacco in there.

Once lit, again, it's not like I thought it would be; the orange flavour is dominant but it's well backed up by the sweetness from the honey, this calms any sourness that could come from the citrus.

There isn't too much nicotine from Bovey, I'd say it's about mild.

For me the only low point is the heat. Despite the fairly heavy topping it doesn't bite but sadly the temperature necessitates gentle sips nonetheless.

This is a surprisingly good aro', I couldn't regularly smoke it but I'd still recommend it.

Three stars.
