I received a sample in my tin society box and as it was an Orlik I hadn't tried yet, I was interested to give it a whorl.

tin/bag note: sweet with some sort of topping for sure. Packing: ready to go from the bag with good level of moisture, easy to pack into my waiting cob. Lighting: Char then relight without any problems. It smoked really well and I only had one relight when it went out.

Taste: Upfront I got the same taste as the smell. Not sure exactly what fruit or liquour. As it burned I picked up more of the virginas in the background along with burley for sure. The Black Cav seemed there to deliver the flavoring.

Overall: Good quality tobacco, but sort of a "non-exciting" smoke to me. Won't replace golden sliced to me, but I wouldn't refuse to smoke it either.

Opening the tin, I was greeted with that Fig / Raisin note that I find very appealing, I couldn’t stuff the bowl fast enough. I sat back, relaxed and slowly worked my way through the bowl. While I enjoyed the quality of the tobacco in this blend it just did not deliver the complexity and depth I was expecting, it just fell short of the mark for me. I tried changing up the pipe I used but did not see any improvement.

Not wanting to give up on this blend I packed the remaining half of a tin for an eight-day business trip to Mexico. There is a nice coffee shop on the hotel property with outside seating so I took this opportunity to grab a Macchiato and take a seat in the courtyard and have another bowl in the morning sun. This was the fit I was looking for, I did enjoy this blend with my morning coffee and that is how I will finish this tin.

I have another tin in the cellar and think I will let it age a couple of years and revisit to see if it improves. Will I buy again, only the future will tell? (2.5 stars)
