A Very Good OTC

I just received a tub of this a couple of weeks ago. When I opened it I found the moisture content to be good, not to much, or to little.

It packed quite well, and when I sipped on the pipe, I got just a bit of sweetness, before lighting it. With the char light there was also some sweetness, yet not overpowering. Lighting it gave the same mild sweetness and mild tobacco flavor that continued through to the bottom of the bowl. It burned cool, and down to a fine gray ash. Stayed lit and consistent all the way, with very little change. There was a slightly sweet after taste, which I personally enjoy.

I found the room note to be pleasing, and some friends have also commented that it was nice, and not loud, or strong like other aromatics I have. I have to say that I enjoy several OTC blends, and this one will certainly be one I keep on hand. For as the tub says, a mildly aromatic OTC, IMHO it is at the top.

If you like a simple, slightly sweet all day smoke, I would highly recommend you give this a try.
