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.
