This is a great upgrade from its predecessor. Cool Menthol with TPA Western leaves an almost bitter aftertaste. It'll work for a couple of dollars, but for a couple more you can get some better flavors and still get that leathery note with a fuller more pleasant experience. I upgraded the mint to INW Natural Mint stolen from Arctic Queen by @Fear. Added Cured to mitigate some of the Western off notes and add that body it does so well. It fills out the middle nicely. Added that 1% Native as per @MaxSavage and you have a solid 123 tobacco base that has the leather from western in the right place and a softer mint with enough body and flavor. Slightly reminds me of a Nat Sherman hint of mint with that sweet coming from the mint rather than the tobacco. but dont quote me on that!
