Odd. All these reviewers can't be wrong. I mean all of them say this tastes like soap.

I have to say that I find almost the entire range of Gawith's Lakeland range to be endowed with the aforementioned chemical quality, but somehow not this.

Yes, it is a bit odd when you open the tin that's for sure. Smellls really tasty to me. Like a virginia-burley-oriental hybrid should, not soapy at all. And the apparently solid block of compressed flake looks a little strange in a round tin as well. Reminds me of that plug I had from Dan Tobacco a few years ago. What was it called ? Ah yes, Salty dog that was it. Just everybody liked that except for me.

The only thing this has in common with Salty dog is the fact you need a sharp knife to carve off chunks, which was the only plus point I could see for said blend at the time.

This though isn't bad. No chemical taste here at all. Just a really pleasant - yes, mild - virginia taste akin to to those perennial classics like Capstan flake or Orlik's finest sliced. It burns really nicely in my new Savinelli pipe (you show-off git). It doesn't fug out the room either.

No, this is a good blend and one that doesn't break the bank either. At only 8.75 euros it's astonishing value, even when you add in the shipping costs. Dan Tobacco are back in the good books with this one.
