I usually only smoke house blends but I included this with a recent order because its what my uncle always smoked and it had such a wonderful room note. I was pretty disapointed to find this tobacco extremely dry and tasted like I was smoking yard clippings. I wasn't too optimistic and maybe I just got a bad batch but I will not be smoking this stuff again.
My first dip into pipe tobacco...and I am very pleased. I wanted something with a sweet hint of cherry and this gave me everything. Sweet, mellow, and for a first timer, very satisfying. I am looking forward to trying some of the other tobacco that came with my starter kit.
