Got this in the mail yesterday......You can request a free sample online HERE. It was really unexpected because I ordered the sample so long ago that I forgot all about it. Always nice to get some free pipe tobacco, huh? I decided to sample it before looking it up online so that I had no expectation before smoking it. Opening the tin, it's obvious that there's latakia in there. It also looks like it has a good amount of cavendish as well. Smoking....latakia is mild and not overpowering with some sweetness. The problem I have is the smoke is "juicy". I think it has a lot of steam in it due to some casing on the tobacco possibly? Because of this the smoke seems kind of wet. Maybe it needs some drying out? But if it wasn't for this, I'd really think favorably about this tobacco. I'm going to leave the tin open for an hour or so and see if that improves it. Can't beat free tho...order some if you haven't.
