Nov 12, 2023 Mild Strong Mild to Medium Pleasant
The tin note brings out pretty much exclusively the pineapple and banana toppings. For me it actually tasted more like melon, but seeing the ingredients, I understand that it's actually pineapple. The banana is nice and very noticeable.

Smoking notes: The pineapple and banana again are the main flavors passing through. This doesn't have a strong vanilla essence. Actually, it's barely noticed at all. Some body is provided by the Virginia leaf, but the flavorings are the main players. Flavors are fairly balanced with themselves and with the Virginia. Not an especially complex blend, but not boring either.

Best smoked after some drying time. This review covers a month after the tin has been opened. It's easy to pack and smoke. The flavor carries itself throughout the smoke with minimal relights, if any. Smokes in moderate pace. Can be an all-day smoke, but for me the uniqueness of the flavors will probably not be as noticed if this is all you smoke, so I'd keep it to occasional smoking. No tongue bite.

Mild-medium in body, mild in strength.

Nice blend, decent amount of flavor, but for me this wasn't enough for a strong recommendation.
