    This has to be the most creamy soft smoke I have ever had. Consistent even smoke from first light to last puff. Needless to say I was very impressed with this tobacco. This is the first plug I have tried, normally I prefer flake tobacco, but this has made me rethink albeit only after smoking.

    I opened the tin half expecting a golden ticket style wrapper but, was greeted with simple white paper. I opened it further to find the plug wrapped in cellophane like a large piece of hard candy. The small plug only filled about a third of the tin. I thought at first I was jipped.

    But, I had opened the tin and was committed. I stripped the cellophane away and placed it on a small cutting board I made in anticipation of it’s arrival and pulled out my favorite pocket knife. Slowly I pared a few paper thin flakes from the plug and rubbed it into a ball that grew many times larger than I had expected, with little effort I stuffed into my large Peterson. It lit right up, no need for a second light even after tamping!? I thought it was a little moist when I rubbed it but, I was determined to try it so I did not bother to let it dry. This was not a problem.

    To my chagrin, It was ever so slightly sweet, not sugary but it was there. Nothing took the forefront. I tasted the Burley and not, the Virginia and not, the casing and not. It was so well balanced I had a hard time trying to pick out any one note. In this it was not unremarkable, it quite the opposite. Nothing over powered anything else. The smoke was creamy and thick without any harshness what-so-ever. I felt like I could swish it around in my mouth like a good whisky.

    I thought for a moment it was going to bite me, but realized it was just strong and when I say strong, I mean it is a sit down and do nothing else smoke. I could feel the tingles starting from the inside of my mouth making their way from my lips and mouth out to my face and wash over me. This stuff would turn a inexperienced smoker as green as the label on the tin and then some. For the experienced smoker it is a relaxing and seminal experience, blowing thick sanguine rolls of billowing relaxation and enjoyment. This is definitely a smoke to be savored and enjoyed.

    The smoke and flavors were consistent from the first puff to the bottom of the bowl. In fact it was so smooth, I hit the bottom of the bowl not realizing I had done so. I tried to relight to no avail, pulled out my Czech tool tamp and realized I was at the bottom. I stirred the ashes to make sure it was gone, not one little fleck had remained. Only the finest talc like ashes that hung to the inside of my bowl like frost when I emptied it.

    My only regret with this one, is that I did not order a truckload. The price is great for what you get. Do not let the small plug fool you. It expands like a balloon when you rub it out. It is every bit one of the finest tobaccos I have ever tried.

    Grab your favorite whiskey, a glass of port, a cup of coffee. Sit down and whittle away. Rub, light, puff and enjoy!
