I did not enjoy this blend. Tastes acrid, in an herbaceous way. There is no sweetness from the Virginia, or even spice from the perique. It’s all just muddled together and bitter. Maybe it will be better with some age, but I wont be reaching for this anytime soon.

Bought a couple of tins of this on Ebay and opened one today.

I have no idea how old it is as there's no code stamped on the tins....however the one I opened was bone, dusty dry and smelt very faintly leathery with a hint of faded richness.

I thought I'd get the tobacco out of the very small tin...it really was rammed in; only to find that the tin has rusted on the inside at the base and the last quarter of the tobacco was spoilt. This is the second tin that I have found to kind of rot from the inside (the other being a McClelland). There was absolutely no sign on the outside that there was rust or any chemical reaction going on with the can.

I have set the remaining tobacco to rehydrate and will review in due course. I really only post this to give you a warning about the possibility of you getting a spoilt tin. I might up the stars a bit after I've got the tobacco smokeable.
