I was looking for another tobacco similar to my favorite English tobaccos (965 and Nightcap). This tobacco is not my cup of tea and I discarded after trying to like it for a few weeks. By the way, I expected the strength to be comparable to that of Nightcap, and it is not. I consider it to be medium strength at most. It doesn't have the relaxing quality of Nightcap. I did not like the cut, which is more like a rubbed out flake than a ribbon cut; that made a bad first impression after being conditioned to the superb ribbon cut of the Peterson tobaccos. Flavor was not the rich complex flavor I expect from an English/Balkan tobacco.
