I expected next to nothing from this tobacco for it's next to nothing price. I was surprised with something very acceptable. It is mild and it has very little nicotine. I agree that it must have some kind of a topping because it has a very nice aroma and I get the start of the tongue feeling I get from cheap aromatics but nothing I would call tongue bite. It is a ribbon cut with some stems and odd pieces. It is better in the cob. Because of the quality to price ratio I rate it as a 3.
Ever been flat broke and need a smoke? I have been. You could do worse than this by far. Recommended because it's cheap, easy to smoke, didn't leave crap in my pipe and I found the more natural taste pleasant. Very mild and pleasant.
You may have to let it dry out a bit at first. Once lit it stayed that way for me all the way to the bottom. This one doesn't really have any flavors that will ghost your pipes so use what you want. Some may say this smokes like hot air but they aren't used to real unflavored burleys. I have to say this is much closer to the tobaccos I grow myself than just about anything else I've tried.
If you are hard up for cash and like a real strait burley then go for it.
