Ole Shenandoah Appalachian Harvest may well be the most pleasantly aromatic blend you'll ever try. Golden, sweet, Virginias are blended with slowly-steamed black cavendish and topped off with the richest note of raspberry flavor available. The room note is nothing short of astounding, and the flavor is rich without being overly sweet.

Ole Shenandoah - Appalachian Harvest.

One of the blends I purchased from a new Ebayer I found ever since UK Ebay has now adjusted the rules to permit tobacco sales. I reviewed Planta Anno MMX (After Dinner Mixture) yesterday and found it thoroughly disgusting so decided to opt for another aromatic to try and rid my palate, and pipe, of the dismay caused by MMX. As it states Aromatic for blend type I thought I'd roll with this.

It arrives in one of the old fashioned, shallow, 50g tins. It isn't like one of the new Dunhill 50g kegs! Although there's no room for the blend to breathe there's no problems with the moisture. The blend includes an equal amount of each: black, light brown, dark brown.

The smoke has the flavour of rich, ripe Virginias, with some of the creaminess of black Cavendish; the ripe Virginias lead. The added flavouring has been done lightly; it gives some zestiness, but doesn't take over. The burn from it's consistent, even, steady, and generates a very cool, bite free, smoke.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: nice.

Appalachian Harvest? A good, semi-aromatic, blend. Three stars:

This is a winner. An aromatic that delivers flavor throughout the smoking experience. With a very pleasant room note and a tin note that actually matches the flavor of the tobacco, I don't know how this isn't a top-rated blend. The tin price is inexpensive, too.
