Smoking nice and smooth, not bitter at all. No tongue bite either, which is something I am struggling with.
I believe this is all Virginia. It is not a sweet sugary taste, and not too smokey.
When I opened the can it reminded me a of a pungent BBQ sauce and had the earthy undertone of a damp forest floor. That greeny undertone had me worried that it may be bitter, but I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth light smoke.
I like it!
My Savenelli Natural is browning nicely. I have only had it for a couple weeks, and like it enough to buy another. It is a nice simple cheap pipe, and at $40 the price is right. The grain is different around the pipe, and it seems to be less than perfect or uniform, but it gives off a nice clean taste. Smokes well if I do my part.
Anyone else like these pipe? Any particular reason they seem to smoke so nice?
