This plug smells of malt, bread and hay. I can smell dark chocolate and a sweetness as well. This sweetness is even visible on the plug because there are small sugar crystals on the surface. The plug is very moist, but I couldn’t wait to smoke it so I cut some cubes and lit the pipe directly without drying the tobacco. The cubes where so moist that it took a while to light them up and a lot of relights were needed. The taste wasn’t that sweet as expected from the smell and from the sugar crystals, but nevertheless it was a bit sweet. The main flavors for me are malt and earth. From time to time the taste reminds me of bread. There are tangy dark fruits and a slightly grassy note too. In a few puffs I can taste a bit dark chocolate.

The next few pipes I’ve smoked with this tobacco I experimented with cutting styles and drying time. It was easier to light the tobacco and keep it lit the more it dried, but in my opinion some of the flavors got lost. The best solution I’ve found yet is cutting very thin flakes which fall apart while cutting and stuff them directly in the pipe without drying time. I still need more relights than regular but I found the full flavor profile from the first time smoking this tobacco.
