An Honest Smoke

This tobacco was purchased in 100g tin about 6 months ago.The tin aroma had the much expected McClelland ketchup aroma which overpowered the tobacco. The tobacco was very moist and requires a good amount of drying time or it will need several relights. Once dryed and lit the slighlty sweet taste and aroma of pure virginias is present. I found that the tin aroma did not affect the taste or flavor of the tobacco . As  an aromatic smoker  I wanted a break and this tobacco gave me a smoke remimiscent of a good cigar with a pure taste and nice spice(not bite) on the tongue which lasted throughout the smoke.I have smoked several bowls and find the DGT technique works best for this tobacco. The spice on the tongue is addictive and keeps you wanting more! The tobacco comes in a nice flake with a dark brown color and was smoked rubbed out.
