Well,I finally tried it based on this thread and the reviews I have read. I ordered two tins off the bat as I usually liked SG stuff (SL ad full Virgina). I opened the tin last night. It did remind me of full viginia and McClelland X-mas cheer 08 in consistency. I rubbed it well and chose my larger bowl meer to fill. My experice with these types of baccy in smaller bowls has not been good(maybe I do not rub well enough) as they tend to clog as I tamp.
After sitting in the pipe overnight I partook on the commute to work this AM. Very good first experience. I has some of the sweetness of the full Virgina and yeat a hint of some sort of spice. I did notice a bit of a punch as I tend to puff pretty good. At the same time it was smooth and did not bite at all.
Overall a big thumbs up and looking forward to the next bowl.
