As I always like to say something positive about the tobaccos I have tried, let me say at the outset that this looks like tobacco!!! Apart from that this is easily the most awful blend I have smoked in over 30 years of pipesmoking - YEUGH!!! Breaking the seal on a new pack is always a moment of anticipation as this is when the tobacco might reveal the delights that lie ahead.In the case of Malton the stench that hit me can only be described as nauseating - an undertone of fruit, but above all an overwhelming pong of perfumed soap mixed with disinfectant. the fruity bit reminded me of Erinmore - but this does a disservice to Erinmore which I actually like - Malton is in a different league of awfulness. Anyway I thought the taste can't be as bad as this - boy oh boy was I wrong! It tastes exactly as it smells, perfumed soap and disinfectant so strong that I was almost sick. The room aroma is exactly the same, at least this blend is consistant!! After struggling with great bravery for about 15 minutes I had to set the pipe aside, because the inside of my mouth tasted like the bowels of some vile and polluting chemical vat. After 30 minutes the taste was still there only now it had taken on a bitter metallic character. I just couln't face any more of it and I have thrown the pack away - I wouldn't even consider passing it on to anyone else - I might loose a friend for life! Another thing I think I have destroyed a good pipe forever (a silver banded "Mycroft", from Peterson's Return of Sherlock Holmes range.)It is so infected with this witches brew that I don't think it will ever smoke sweet again. I never, ever want to see this tobacco again in my life AARGH !!!

I tried several times to like this tobacco. Maybe it was the tin. Unfortunately, I found this tobacco to be unsmokeable. I'm hoping that the pouch version ages better than this tin.
Pipe Used: Several
Age When Smoked: 10 plus year old 25gram tin
