An Argentine tobacco that almost makes you never smoke again.

The first tobacco you buy when you start smoking pipe, recommended by a vendor who referred to it as "the tobacco that everyone carries". To be carried away by this comment at the moment of starting my journey through the world of the pipe almost kicked me out of it.

Composed mainly of Virginias and Burley, the caramelized aroma of the supposed vanilla takes away completely the odors that could have the tobaccos. To the touch it feels quite humid and slightly sticky, and at the moment of smoking it feels excessively sweet, almost false, with a caramel flavor with slight tones like chocolate, but that bites like the devil.

At the time of smoking, perhaps because of the inexperience of the first few times he heated the bowl like a fireplace and constantly biting, over time manage to lower the temperature of the puffs, but even then there was no time that it did not bite.

Not recommended for people who are starting in the world of pipes, and within the wide variety of options vanilla flavored tobacco seems to me to be far behind in the list of options.

Probably the best aromatic of argento. Virginia and burley of good quality, better than those used in the other aromatics of this brand. Cut and humidity are ideal.

The vanilla casing is of similar quality to other European tobaccos, as pleasantly natural or unpleasantly artificial as the taste of each one determines, but not inferior to other commercial blends which usually cost twice as much.

As all American-style aromatics should be smoked carefully since if it is not done properly it may bite quite a lot. Doing this the mixture can provide a very pleasant smoke where a definite vanilla flavor and perhaps some caramel does not dull the taste of good quality tobacco
