    today at the local B&M.. I had never heard of it and the guy working had no idea either. So, on the way home I try it in a new cob I picked up and it's really good. I don't have the talent to do a real review but the car smelled great and I went through 3 bowls today. I don't think I've seen it mentioned on here.

    I'll give it a shot..

    I opened it in the car the smell was kind of sweet but wasn't as strong as my other aro fav Autumn Evening. It packed easly and after a quick char and one relight it smoked nicely to the bottom of the bowl. No bite or odd aftertaste. I took the wife to the grogery and as soon as she got in she said the car smelled nice for a change. So I fired up another bowl while I waited for her and it didn't require a relight and the 3rd bowl on the deck while grilling burned nicely. It's kind of a sweet, maybe fruit? Wife guesses apricots and vanilla. No info on the tin.

    So after all this I liked that it didn't require constant attention, didn't bite, smoked dry, tasted nice and the wife enjoyed the smell.

    Thanks for the review guys. I'm going to the indoor market later today to see the tobacco man. He has some in a jar so I'll get a 25g wrap from him and give it a whirl [​IMG]

    I score my toby's out of 5 and keep a record of them in each pipe I smoke them in. 1 being awful and 5 great. I score on taste and burn, and this one got a 5 & 5 from me, I loved it [​IMG]

    Sounds like a nice aromatic...not always my style, but I'll try anything once... :whistle:
    Paul...no tobacco deserves a 5. A rating of 4 31/32 is as high as I go...1/32 off for the "health hazard" involved..... :roflmao:

    If I remember right .. it reminded me of cotton candy with other stuff going on . Very aromatic ! Was a bit much for me . Wonder how it would be toned down ?

    Lol T-Bear, nice one!

    Ruffinogold, it is very nice. I tend towards aromatics at the moment. It has to taste nice, which is why I'm and Ale drinker and not a spirits drinker lol.

    Paul.
