I bought a 25g packet of this just out of curiosity as much as anything. It was dirt cheap so what could go wrong?

The aroma packet is nothing special, possibly reminiscent of Gold Block. The cut is quite coarse shag, much as described elsewhere. Packing and lighting are no issue. Initial puffs taste much like those of a RYO tobacco, probably confirming what other reviewers have said about this. In then sinks into a mild smoke with hints of citrus, the virginia has flavour. It occasionally has little wafts of Royal Yacht, though, to be fair, that's probably like a third division player who bends it like Beckham every couple of matches so it's probably not a good comparison. There is a little bite towards the end of the smoke that even slow puffing can't dispel but it's no real biggy, maybe a smaller bowled pipe is in order.

On the whole, not a bad wee tobacco. Far from classic and there are a hell of a lot of better tobaccos on the market, it certainly can't hold a candle. If it were more expensive I probably wouldn't buy it, but being on a tight budget, I would quite happily smoke it till I could afford better stuff. Okay, if I were more flushed with cash I probably wouldn't smoke this, so taking price out of the equation it's probably worth two stars. But plugging the cost back in, it's a slightly rough but none the less reasonable tobacco at a decent price. It just sneaks in at three stars. Buy it, but only if you're skint.
