This is a great tobacco flavor. The sweetness is balanced perfectly. I’ve had it in my gnome for a full day now, and have zero desire to switch this one out. I would consider this to be a lighter tobacco blend, such as Turkish. Steep-wise, i let it sit with the cap off for about 6 hrs. That’s all I could stand! Perfect right out the gates. For a 50/50 blend it produces a lot of vapor. If you want it to hit hard it will. I was very surprised how fast I grew to love this one.
