Samuel Gawith - Apricot and Cream.
First things first, it's a blend comprised of Cavendish tobaccos', both black and brown. The pouch smells strongly of apricots, and strangely for Sam G' it's not too moist.
I wasn't expecting to enjoy the flavour much as I'm not a huge fan of apricots but it's actually quite good. The apricots are easy to pick out, but the taste is smoothed by the cream, so there's little astringency or sharpness. The nicotine's just like I expected from a blend of Cavendish tobaccos': very mild. And something that's in keeping with a heavy aromatic blend is tongue bite; damn!
Apart from the bite I like this. That's LIKE, not love, ergo, three stars.
