    I'll do a full review later, but Mate was asking about this one.

    I was already anticipating something good when seeing the tin saying "Full Strength Mixture" and I wasn't let down.

    Upon opening the tin, you see and smell a dark, smokey mixture. The tobacco in my tin was rather moist, but I just filled up a bowl and lit it up.

    Even though it seemed too moist, I had no trouble lighting and keeping lit.

    There is definitely a hickory aroma pre-light, and in the room note.

    Laura's son Miguel is visiting and he said it smells like hickory and like it would go good with a steak. (Not a bad compliment from a non-smoker in the room.)

    I thought the SG Commonwealth had a great full-bodied taste without being too strong to knock you over. The smokey hickory flavor stayed throughout as well as an underlying sweetness that reminded me of a dried fruit mixture I have - "a sweet, tart, and tangy medley of fruit flavors" (tart apples and tasty apricots) along with the hickory - in a word - "Delicious".

    I highly recommend the Samuel Gawith's Commonwealth. Don't be alarmed by the "Full Strength Mixture" tagline. I thought I would need to save this for after a big meal, which I did, but now that it is the morning after, I am ready to light it up again before breakfast or coffee.

    Looks like you are pleased.

    Also looks like Miguel has good taste

    Yes, Commonwealth is definitely on the favorites list now. Thanks for the recommendation John.

    The Bracken Flake is good too, but that one knocks me on my ass. LOL.

    See and you though all I could do was make corny, sexist, politically incorrect, anti-nazi jokes

    Seriously, I'm glad you liked it, but we seem to have the same taste in baccy and udder, sorry I meant other things
