I purchased this tobacco because I liked the tin art and because I was interested in the write up provided by the manufacturer. Upon opening the tin, I found a very pleasant well behaved burly. No aggresive aroma to bombard the senses. The paper inside the the tin is not stained or discolored. The tobacco is kind of ribbony, smells like tobacco ought to smell and the topping is a mild cocoa. It is not wet or even damp. Dry and springy to the touch. It reminds me of SWR regular, although to my palette it tastes better. Good burly taste,tobacowy tasting. Good nutty flavor. The topping enhances the experience. The cocoa is there but muted in the background. IMHO,this is a quintessential all day smoke. Doesn't bite. Doesn't scream for attention. Room note is pleasant. No aftertaste. Smoked two full bowls and the pipe remained dry. Perfect for puttering around ,going for a walk or for me, sitting on the deck with a good book. Won't be a favorite gotta have it tobacco,but if you like burly, it'll be a very nice companion of an afternoon. Not much nicotine. Smoked in a beloved Boswell noseburner and a Neerup. I liked it. Plan to buy more and keep it in my tobacco rotation
