Carey's - Highland Fling.
With the smell from the mix it's easy to notice the whiskey and spices, I'm not sure if clove is one of the ingredients but I can definitely pick clove out in the smell.
The flavour has again a noticeable clove addition to it, the whiskey is also recognizable but the spicy/clovey side outweighs it somewhat. To be honest, this tastes very different to any other blend I have tried! Sadly there is another point that I find disagreeable, the temperature and bite. Right from the off this is too warm, a poor quality that is increased a little by some tongue bite, it's not a really heavy biter but whether it's tongue bite or heat it's not a comfortable experience! Out of the tobacco tastes the only one I can pick out is the Black Cavendish, the rest seems a little covered by the topping. The nicotine is quite light, it takes some large puffs to get any of it. After smoking this my mouth is left with a sort of sticky taste in it which isn't pleasant at all!
I score Highland fling two stars rather than one as I feel it just isn't bad enough to score only one, but only just!
