Just tried my first bowl of "DAN" Independence and wow, talk about strong. With the first smell (and light) this stuff gave me the first impression of a French whore wearing a cheap candy necklace! It might be my Hillbilly palate's used to drug store blends but this **** seems STRONG! Right now I've got the tin open getting some air in hopes it'll calm down a bit so more later on how it goes. I will say it seems to be a very clean smoke. Lots of fine white ash with no goo at the bottom. It seems to be a very coarse cut that's neither dry or wet. It say's it's A blend of the finest grades of Virginias - Manufactured in Germany by Dan Tobacco. I don't know what it's cased in but I swear it smells like a womans perfume. Anybody else had this weed yet?
