The only drawback I have found is that the smoke can be often not quite as cool as I would prefer, however I have never experienced any bite. You will be hard pressed to find anything finer if a light aromatic with a proper tobacco taste is what you are looking for.
Latelly i am in an aromatic blend mood.once the tin breaks a wonderfull smell of cream and caramel comes out.a deeper smell adds some citruses and nuts.the blend has nice texture with some broken flakes included,high moisture and some drying time is needed because it can’t be smoked as it is.after dried it packs and lights easy with some relights needed through smoking.while smoking i expected a taste consisted only from the flavouring but thats not true.virginias stand equally with the cavendish leading to a nice combination.the virginias are mostly citrusy and lemony working great with that cream caramel taste.i also got some alcohol notes.the burleys add some nice nuts and cocoa notes making the overall taste nice.generally the flavours combine well and natural leading to a nice smoking taste.burns at medium speed and hot to ash with some moisture being created at the filter.nicotine level is medium and the after taste tongue bite but if you puff fast there might be some harsh spots.the room note is very pleasant.generally i enjoyed this blend though it might ghost a pipe easilly.not an all day smoke unless you prefer highly aromatin blends.
