Not an aromatic in the usual meaning of the term: there's hardly any topping here (if anything at all). This would be rather a "natural aromatic", a tobacco with a slightly sweet aroma due to the processing of the leaves rather than the spraying of additives. I found an oldish tin of this stuff at a local tobacconist, so why not giving it a try? Well, I doubt I will finish the tin... It's not strictly bad: it is a rather competent blend of burley, virginia, oriental and (I suspect) black cavendish. It has a light taste, but a medium body: hints of sweetness, hints of citrusiness, a tobacco-feel that clearly divides this from the usual aromatics. Anyway, I find it terribly boring... When I want a natural aromatic, I'd better stick to Barbary Coast from now on... And the weird tickling in the mouth common to most other Dunhill's non-Latakia blends is present (as is their usual care in cut and burning qualities). Not a very rewarding smoke, in my opinion, but probably more because of my personal taste than because of objective reasons.
