I ordered this as a sample on my order. To be honest this smells like a tobacco I once had. This smells warm and dark. The brewed flavor does not at all remind me of gingerbread. Despite this, I think that it is very nice. It has a deep almost clove flavor and what I feel it really needs is more bite. I think that the molasses quality of gingerbread is there, but it needs a few improvements to make it truly awesome.
