Awful blend. Seriously just sell the tin if you still have one cellared. Not worth the space. The chestnut “aroma” isn’t noticble. It literally doesn’t taste like anything. I love Lat in general but it doesn’t even come through in this blend.

Flavors of nutty Burley, Irish cream and the slightly woodsy flavor of Latakia comprises this no longer produced blend. I was fond enough of it to contact C&D about blending me some and they don’t even have any idea what the recipe was. So, if you find a limited edition Christmas blend from C&D that you enjoy, you had better stock up because when it’s gone it’s really gone.

A mildly aromatic smoke with just a touch of latakia. If I were to guess, I would say it's probably Nutty Irishman with some latakia added. Flavorful enough without being overbearing, it's really a shame that this is a limited edition tobacco and no longer being produced.
