Mild None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant

The mildly citrusy, grassy Virginia also offers a light woodiness, and is well complimented by the nutty, toasty, earthy, slightly sweet and floral burley. The taste is a couple steps shy of being in the center of mild than medium. The nic-hit is mild. Doesn’t bite, but burns fast and warm, so it needs to puffed slowly. Has a consistent, low-key flavor that lacks depth. Leaves virtually no dampness in the bowl, and hardly needs a relight. Has a decent, short lived after taste. An all day smoke.

James Barber - Golden Dutch Shag.

I can't say this is anything special, nor is it anything bad. It's just a bit boring.

The pouch contains a medium brown, finely cut shag. On the plus side it has a decent amount of moisture. The note from the pouch has a strange herbiness to it, which is also very slightly present in the smoke. It doesn't bite, and it gives a good burn: quite even, and consistent.

The nicotine's mild, and the room-note's okay.

This is a short, sharp review as there's not much to say about this blend, it's just too boring for me:

Somewhat recommended.
