James Barber - Kentucky Shag.
There isn't an easier way of saying this: Kentucky Shag's a hard-core blend!
Personally, I quite enjoy it: there's a straight Kentucky flavour, it gives a large wallop of N (I don't inhale any), burns awesomely, and doesn't bite.
The flavour's a very pure Kentucky one, there isn't any underlying nuances: it is, what it is: a formidable, slightly smoky/fiery (but not as much-so as a lot of Kentucky's) , really raw tasting smoke; not for the faint of heart!
Nicotine? Again, not for the faint of heart: very strong!
The room-note? Strong: smoke it on your own!
I couldn't smoke this very often, I'm not 'man-enough'! But as it goes, it's a high quality Kentucky blend.
