Motzek Tom's Dark Twist

The dark side of power. 50% dark fired Kentucky and 50% perique provide rich aroma and powerful spice. Still gentle and mild, almost velvety. Very rich, but never aggressive. Hand-spun and carefully baked for flavoring.
Notes: Comes in pouches of 100 grams, and [your] experience may vary from the pouch to pouch.

I ordered Tom`s Dark Twist a few weeks before. As I got it I was happy about the nice looking, but a bit sad about the wet condition of the Twist. My first pipe I smoked was not really a great smoking pleasure. I decided to put it a few weeks beside to dry it a bit. Now, the Twist is a bit dryer and it burns very a well. It´s a strong Perique/Kentucky blend with a great taste. The sweetness and fruitness of the Perique is well balanced to the Kentucky leaf. A very well made twist, I like it more than the Lakeland twists, but for the daily smoke too strong. I would give it 3 stars because the twist was too wet and the taste is not soo complex I would wish.
