E. A. Carey - Desert Island Mixture.

The mixture is practically a shag, apart from a few sporadic coarser pieces. It appears quite even with the quantity of each colour of leaf, and the moisture of it's good.

The lighting, burn, and temperature are good, they all put a tick in the positive box. The flavour's O.K., but not my ideal sort of aromatic. The bourbon gives actual bourbon sweetness/flavour, and little alcohol piquancy, the vanilla gives a creamy/custard note, and the coconut gives a sort of oily top flavour, but it all seems a little heavy for my liking. The weight of the topping renders the tobaccos almost redundant, having little room to shine. Like I said, it's not rank, it just tastes cluttered.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant to tolerable.

Two stars seems fair:

Somewhat recommended.
