The Untouchables is a special mixture, as advertised . An attractive black and gold ribbon with a tin note of cedar . Nice moisture level , really ready for smoking . Primarily a virginia mixture with it's slightly sweet , hay like qualities. The black cavendish adds a sweetness and some body . Both tobaccos are of high quality . I( don't think it will bite. Although this is an aromatic the qualities of the tobaccos come fully through , a skill of HU tobacco blenders . It comes across as sort of a sweetened virginia with cedar qualities , but lightly applied . The cedar taste is unique in that I have never seen it used in pipe tobacco .I wasn't able to pick up the rose at all . This tobacco illustrates how a lightly applied aromatic agent can embellish fine tobacco . I was surprised that this tobacco was made by Dan , a company that usually has a heavier hand with aromatics . I will bring a sample of this to Chicago and share it with Jiminks so we can get a more exact description .
