Package note of vanilla, molasses and spices. Tobacco is a ribbon cut of orangish tan, brown and a tiny amount of dark brown. Moisture content is ok. Some pipe smokers will want to dry it out a bit. Burns moderate with few relights. The strength is mild to medium and nic is mild. Flavoring is medium, with notes of malty sweet. Several flavorings seem to be present; I concede some may be casings. I tasted mostly sugar, and at times it seemed there was a malty vanilla/maple and cinnamon, or similar spice. Taste is mild to medium and moderately consistent, with notes of spices, burnt sugar and cinnamon, maple like, orange peel, brown sugar, malty, toast, wood, nuts, mildly sour, tanginess, slightly acidic, slightly spicy, a sweet peaty vegetation background note, and a peppery retro. Flavoring is leading with Burley and Virginia supporting. Room note is pleasant to tolerable, and aftertaste is good.
