Well my first tinned tobacco.

And in comparison to the Brighams I was impressed however I think it was still a little too subtle for me.

Now I will continue to try this now and again as it was quite tasty but the tastes where quite mild and subtle. Could be as I improve in my technique I will get a better smoke out of it and more will jump up. I truly loved the aroma.......reminded me of fresh tanned leather and it had a spiciness to it.

It was clear that it is a top quality blend as compared to what I have smoked to date.

Now to be fair I smoked it in a new cob and only smoked half a bowl so there is more to come I believe.

What this has shown me is that good tobacco's make all the difference, the flavour was there I just wanted more of it.

Looking forward to some more tins looks like I am in a free-fall down the pipe slope.

if you've smoked a cigar in the past couple days, you won't be able to notice most of the flavors from most any pipe tobacco that's not heavily laced with latakia or orientals.
