The grassy, citrusy Virginia is the base of the blend. The nutty, earthy burley plays a support role. The unsweetened black cavendish adds a little brown sugar. The amaretto topping tones down the tobaccos a bit, but it lacks a little depth. The nic-hit is barely noticeable. Won’t bite, but will get slightly warm on the tongue if puffed fast. Burns fairly cool and clean at a reasonable pace once dried a little, and the flavor is consistent to the finish. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. Has a pleasant, very short lived after taste. An all day smoke. Two and a half stars. This is also sold in the Super Value line, hence the duplication of that review here.
I really like the taste of this tobacco. It's not for everybody. A pleasant taste of Amaretto without any bite. This tobacco is generally wet out of the bag. It takes a couple of days to get the humidity right where it smokes well. I rotate this with my Prince Albert as my daily blends. I enjoy this tobacco and what can you say about the price, it's dirt cheap. I've been paying about $12 for a 14 ounce bag. My wife love the aroma of this tobacco the best of all the tobaccos I smoke.
This is probably the best "drugstore" smoke i've ever enjoyed. $2.50 at my local Drug Mart. The scent of the pouch is amazing, and the tobacco is very moist, so naturally, I threw some in a cob and lit up! The taste is delicious, and retains much of the enticing scent. The room note gives Captain Black a fierce competitor. Best "cheap" brand out there, hands down.
Bought this as a "Super Value" sample. Very moist out of the bag, needed a few hours to dry out before smoking. Strong sweet smell from the bag. Easy to pack and light. It has a sharp flavor that does remind me of amaretto. It will bite if pushed, but I found it pretty forgiving. I will probably pick up some more to keep around.
