The golden tobacco base is quite mild and of medium grind, a bit on the dry side. It is quite easy to sniff with a bit of care. I believe the tobacoco here to be Virginia-, as there is a grassy undertonee to this. And yes, the top note is of wild meadow honey, a bit floral, mildly sweet and completely delicious. Is it worth the price? Absolutely. You'll want to decant this into a smallish glass jar to prevent it from drying; it gets sandy when allowed to dry more than a few weeks after tearing open the 10 gram refill pouch. I love this! Your Wicked Uncle Squinty can't recommend this one highly enough.
