Medium brown, uniformly cut, perfectly moist ribbons. There's a sweet aromatic fragrance emanating.
The first thing to point out, for me, is the immense tongue bite I get from it. One star down! That aside though, it isn't that bad. The main flavour is an aromatic, sweet, one. Honey-like. It doesn't seem too sticky, but is easily above medium. Throughout a bowl the topping stays in the lead, the tobaccos never overtake. The burn's reliable, although it does seem quite warm.
Package note of sweet nuts, vanilla, and mild spices. Tobacco is brown ribbon and needs little drying. Burns modernly fast with few relights. The strength is mild and nic is mild. Flavoring is medium, with notes of mild vanilla, honey and sweet cream. Taste is medium and consistent, with notes of nuts, mild sweet grass, bread, a little dry and a slightly spicy retro. The flavoring is leading with burley and Virginas supporting. Cavendish is supporting from afar. Room note is very pleasant, and aftertaste is ok.
