The pouch aroma of this blend smells very nice. I am picking up on mostly Vanilla with hints of Chocolate. Moisture content is on the wet side and a little sticky. Some drying time would be recommended. I did not let it dry and just loaded up my pipe and proceeded to the charring light. Upon the charring light, I smelled the vanilla right away. It smelled great and left a very pleasant, lingering room note. The flavor of vanilla was also there and it tasted very nice. I finished lighting the pipe and settled in for the smoke.

Some drying time would be recommended. I did not let it dry and just loaded up my pipe and proceeded to the charring light.
