Dear Mr. Crace :

In your letter dated October 25, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling for Scansmoke R909 Flavor.

The product is a medium smoke flavor, exhibiting a strongly acidic burnt, wood aroma. Scansmoke R909 Flavor is an intermediate smoke flavor used as a raw material for further processing or directly as a flavor, e.g. in spirits and liqueurs. The product is packed in 225-kilo drums.
