An Amazing Blend

I ordered this after reading the reviews on this blend. Started out with 4 ounces and I will definitely be ordering more.

Absolutely stunning. Creamy smoke that has a mild cocoa taste that is not cloyingly overly done. Definitely tastes like tobacco. The pouch aroma is so yummy you will be torn between eating and smoking it. My recommendation is - you smoke it!

The tobacco burns well and burns to a fine white ash. There is no bite and the flavor is consistent throughout the bowl. I detected a nuttiness that makes itself known as one progresses through smoke. Wonderful.

I am falling in love with all the blends by Steve Books - and I highly recommend this one. Take a bow friend.

Wow - just got the New version of this tobacco (Called 'Grandpa's The Next Generation') - seems one of the tobaccos became unavailable and they had to reblend it. Have to say it is just as good as the original. I discern no difference - perhaps the new version is even better. This has become my go to blend when I want to have a mellow smoke after a hard day's work. Still highly recommended.
