The honey was not of high quality, and clashed with the maple, which was sweeter and richer. The vanilla was typical, nothing to brag about, but not bad. A few nutty, earthy burley notes here and there did nothing much for the taste. Had almost no nicotine. Burned a little too well, and needed to be sipped to avoid bite. Left little moisture in the bowl, and needed few relights. Was an all day smoke.
Revised 24 May 2005 - After chopping it up in a blender and allowing it to dry out for three days, its flavor, aroma and ease of packing vastly improved. While this is not something I would want to do regularly, it saved me from tossing it out. Now its a very good and pleasent smoke!
Original review- While this is a decent all burley smoke, the casing, while mild, puts off an odd flavor, that to me, is nothing like honey, vanilla or maple but instead is akin to cheap cough syrup. A course and ribbon cut blend that with its moisture content is a pain to pack. As far as taste, this is similar to Union Leader but falls short in comparison as far as overall quality. Union Leader is a much better choice.
