Sundowner is another Fairmorn blend I needed to check my notes from the late 1990's to get my impressions. I have not smoked it in years. A somewhat mild English style blend with a lot of complexity. The various types of leaf employed lent to a wonderful tin of tobacco. I smoked this one in the evenings as the flavor did not agree with my morning taste buds for some reason. In my notes I said that a fast puffing cadence produced a little nip.

Good English for the price. I got three 100g tins for about $4 a tin-of course that was a promo price, but I believe it's pretty reasonable in general. I can't sense any heavy flavorings, but then Latakia tends to cover flavorings up for me, so maybe that's it. This is not personally my favorite style of tobacco, and my favorite Englishes have been well-aged old tins, so I plan to cellar my two unopened tins for a while. It doesn't have as much character as some blends in this style, but it is inoffensive and a great value.

1-18-10 Three months opened. The tobacco is pretty dry now, so there must not be any significant topping. I can taste something here, but can't quite put my finger on it. Hell of a bargain, but this is one of those blends which give me some bite even if I go easy. Also, this reevaluation bowl made me salivate more than normal, though I tend to have the urge to spit when I smoke anything at all. Still, the taste is very good, and this is incredible quality for what I paid. I will smoke those tobaccos more often which punish me less, but will not mind having two unopened cans of this in reserve just in case times get hard. Tongue bite can be a personal reaction, and in all fairness I must also say that with this one the bite goes away-when I stop smoking it!
