It came very dry and I hydrated it before trying it to see just what I was going to be blending.
While I've rated it only three stars because of how mild it is, given the price (~$25.00 per pound), this could easily become a regular smoke.

It begins with a slightly hay-like taste on the initial and true light fading to a slightly sweet smoke with the presence of hay diminishing.
About mid-bowl the sweetness increases slightly and there is almost a hint of oranges present.
There is a little citrus/hay in there, but not much.
