Fan of Amphora Original, and saw that they had a newer Amphora Burley blend. Interested. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

I tried a pouch and really enjoyed it. It is different than the Original in the sense that it relates, taste wise, more to the Burley Flake, but with a light molasses (I think) topping added.
The tobacco is on the darker side than Original and offers big partially broken flakes.
Nicotine is pretty much on the medium level.
I liked it.
I will definitively buy more of it.

I am going to try it one of these days. I always have Amphora on the wish lists, and my wife has a soft spot for it since I smoked so much of the Amphora Red over the years. It sounds like something I would like.

The Flake is earthier because it has no topping or casing that I know of.
The Amphora, while fairly earthy as well, adds a little sweet twist because of its topping/casing.
I seriously wonder if the Amphora is made with broken ('defective') flakes from the HH Burley Flakes, to which
a light casing/topping was added.
But I would have to smoke more of both to gather a more definitive opinion.

Ruff, I believe both were released this year.
