I’ve never really seen compressed heicha like this before, so of course I had to try it. The little mini is so cute; much smaller and more compact than an average dragonball and with a more perfectly smooth and marble like shape!! Steeped grandpa style, the taste is less dark than expected and almost syrupy in mouthfeel with notes of wet grass, dark chocolate covered nuts of some kind, and pipe tobacco – but all tinged with a golden syrup sweetness. Sweet tobacco is a little strange to my palate in the way its presented here, but not in an offensive way – just one of those flavours that makes you stop and think. A lot.
