I was a little hesitant about this tobacco as I was not familiar with mixtures with any orientals in them. After getting 12 ounces in (bulk) I set some aside to allow it to dry additionally. The shipped tobacco was not damp, but I always like to let it dry for 20-30 minutes before trying a new tobacco if it feels "damp".
This tobacco is milder than WhiteKnight or Darkhouse. It reminds me somewhat of Dunhills Early Morning, but with what is a nicer flavor profile for my palate.
I have yet to suffer any "bite" from it. The flavors are one of my favorite tobacco's so far (and why i've recently ordered another 5 pounds of it in). There is a slight sour note to the flavor profile (which is not a "bad" thing). I've had several bowls and all have been consistent, needing a relight here and there but burning very nicely throughout the bowl.
Definitely one that will be kept on hand as long as I can get it.
