I bought this some time ago, for the fancy tin. I opened it, smelt it, shrugged and put it away. I just wasn't in the mood for yet another Eurotrash banana-mango-maracuj√° concoction of the type that often gets packaged into showy multicoloured presentation tins. But then the other day I wanted some novelty, so I semi-hydrated some Old Tradition (the old tradition that fancy tins can be sold notwithstanding what crap you put in them) and stuffed it into a new Butz-Choquin junior calabash?breaking in new pipes is no fun, we might as well make it into proper Lenten penance by really frying the old glossy with dried-out aromatic nitroglycerine.

It was surprisingly peppery and not-so-surprisingly bitey to begin with, with some unexpected fire-cured Burley weight. By smoking very carefully, it settled into a pleasant, cool-ish, biscuit-y Virginia, nutty Burley experience, certainly a lot better than the tongue-murdering Larsen Classic.

So, if you must have the tin, and are a slow puffer, rest assured that you can make old tradition into a mildly pleasant exterience, if you let it dry somewhat and nurse it into civilised behaviour.

The experience I endured from this blend was a medium bodied smoke with a bit of burn to it,the casing was some kind of liquer which gave some unnecessary action to my tongue.I'll dry it out to see if it improves...

HOT,HOT,HOT!!!!!! This is a beautiful tin and the description sounded wonderful,but i have never had my tongue seared like this in my life!From the first puff you will feel the burn.I thought it was just me, so I asked my tobacconist to try it with me and he felt the same sensation of having sipped scaldingly hot coffee.The blend is a broken Virginia flake with toasted burley and unscented black cavendish.It has a mellow top dressing which enhances the aroma,but doesn't really affect the flavor. The really sad thing here is that the taste is wonderful. A really rich tobacco taste resembling a navy cake mix.I am going to add some latakia to this and let you know what happens but for now I'll let it sit. Proceed with caution on this one.
