Picked up a tin of this about 6 months ago. Popped it open today at work while I had some downtime. Nice dark brown flakes and what seems to be a whiskey? Scent that's really rather pleasant. Definitely something that smokes well and will need to be added to my regular rotation. I only detect a hint of a topping in this, or I guess it could be the baccy itself although I've not encountered this whiskey aroma/flavors before. My work pipes are all Dr. Grabows.
