GQ Tobaccos - Peach & Apple.
The smell from the pouch is like a perfumey Balkan. Of the different tobaccos it's the Latakia that comes through the strongest in the unlit smell. The moisture amount is great and this makes for easy lighting and once lit it tastes 'different' to other things I have smoked!
Like the unlit aroma it's like a perfumed Balkan. The Latakia is the most formidable of the tobacco flavours. The Black Cavendish really softens the taste and cools down the smoke. The additives aren't as strong as I expected them to be in the flavour. They are perfectly noticeable but not too strong. I find the most difficult taste to acknowledge is the cinnamon, possibly as it's quite a full flavour. Next to that in the line of difficulty is the Virginia, again as Virginia is a fairly subtle taste it seems to struggle cutting through. I find the N is at a medium amount in this. Satisfying but it doesn't churn my stomach!
This is a unique blend but that's worth a try! Three stars.
