I was online browsing about a week ago and saw this one and bought it as it appeared to be something new on the market and different. This tin dated 12/16/19 is barely a month old. Upon opening the tin, I was greeted with some nice brown flakes with a distinctive sweet, slightly fermented sourish smell but in a good way. I asked the missus to smell this one and the only thing that could come to her mind was the scent of pears. Obviously, it is not a flavored tobacco but this there is a sweetness to the tin note. I took a flake and folded it and rubbed it out between my fingers and put it into a cob. The first 3rd of the bowl I did not get much but then like turning on a light switch the flavors kicked in. I also got a little nose tingle which from past experiences is the Perique kicking in. The Criollo leaf which means ‘native seed’ really gives this blend a nice rich dark taste to the smoke. I really enjoyed and do not anticipate the tin lasting very long. The flakes were a little moist so for those who dry out their tobacco which I do not you might want to let it rest for a short period of time. Also, this is only the second time I have ever been the first to review a blend. Lucky me.
