An extremely mild, aromatic mixture with an intriguing flavour of vanilla and spices.

11/24/2005: Highly recommended as an Aromatic. Real tobacco taste in a tasty, flavored blend. Vanilla is the dominant flavor. Ny pouch was bone dry, almost brittle. The big plus here is quality, taste, and aroma. I almost never rate tobaccos above "pleasant to tolerable", this one has an exceptional aroma. Minuses: Burns faster than I like, a bit tough on the tongue although no real bite. I may try adding a bit of moisture to this pouch and see if that slows the burn time a bit. Also for you nicophiles...it is fairly satisfying for an Aromatic.

11/25/2006 Update: Still better than most Aromatics. Re-hydration led to slight burn improvement. Drop one star in overall satisfaction.

A good mild all day tobacco with a little vanilla flavour. But not as dominant as in other ones. Also I can't find the citrus taste in it. The tobacco is really cheap and therefore a good alternative for an all day smoke. There are no tongue bites at all and the tobacco has a very cool smoking temperature. For me it was ok but I prefer Mac Baren's Virginia No.1 more.

I got a small sample of this tobacco from my tobacconist. Let's start by saying it's not a bad tobacco, but it's not great either.

In the pouch, its smell may appear as somewhat "synthetic" but in reality it's just rather concentrate. Fruity and pleasant, reminds me of cherry tea. The texture of the cut is very thin and pleasant to the touch. Filling the bowl is a real pleasure.

It burns quickly, probably due to the very thin cut, so don't expect to smoke for long. However, despite the larger surface area it is hard to keep lit. Probably it's due to its humidity just out of the pouch.

The taste is mild, and so is the strength. It's almost like smoking air. The aroma and the notes, however, are pleasant and remind of cherry and vanilla.

I recommend it for first time smokers and those who don't like the nicotine kick. For an experienced smoker, this blend is probably nothing to be remembered, yet it's probably a good choice once in a while, to break the routine with the favorite blends.
