Sam Gawith - 2015 Limited Edition.
When I smell this one the amaretto seems very mild, it doesn't have the heavy attribute associated with aromatic blends. For a change with Sam G' blends mine is of a good moistness, but as mine was a 5 gram sample it may be more moist from a sealed tin.
The flavour of the smoke isn't what I would expect from an aromatic, the Amaretto is easy to notice however I don't find it as full as you would anticipate from an aromatic, it acts more like a 'gentle' enhancement on the flavour. The nut quality from the Burley is a little tricky to ascertain as I get confused between the amaretto almonds or the Burley's nuttiness, either way it's nice! An easier flavour to identify is the Black Cavendish's sweetness, it comes through perfectly! The Nicotine is at a mild amount, N lovers will be disappointed! Throughout a bowl of this it gives a decent burn, it doesn't go out easily but burns quite steady. The temperature of the smoke has been cool, a quality that is embellished by zero bite. The room note is a pleasant one, not too heavy and not too light with little added flavour noticeable.
As I usually find with Samuel Gawith this is an exceptional pleasure, hence four stars!
