I got a little surprise in the mail today. A large envelope from Dream Castle, containing a honking large tin of something called 'Great Outdoors.' I vaguely remember signing up online for a free sample of something ages ago; I assume this is it. The honking large tin was only about half full, but there must still be 50g here. Tin note is... well, it smells like dip. Skoal Long Cut. Looked it up on TR. Some reviewers compare it to SWR's licorice aroma. SWR does have a mild anise note (as opposed to Borkum Riff's strong anus note) but I'm not getting that from Great Outdoors, it just smells like dip to me. The cut is a little reminiscent of SWR, though. Coarse cut burley with a little color variation. I let some dry on my desk for a couple hours. It was still wet and sticky. Loaded a little in my claydog for testing (sorry, David!). It tastes... like free tobacco. Not bad, really. A light, biteless aromatic. No nasty chemical flavor despite the tin aroma. I can tell that it's at least mostly tobacco. A little burley and a little cavendish. Apparently this blend is supposed to be a remake of Field & Stream. Perhaps I travel in the wrong circles, because I'd never heard of Field & Stream before (then again, maybe my circles are just fine). All in all I'm pretty surprised with how mild and sort of pleasant it is. I'll definitely smoke a few more bowls before making up my mind, but I can't see it being something I'd ever buy. Not bad, though, Dream Castle, not bad. And thanks for the free smoke.
