Notes: From Smoking Pipes website: Shane says Sutliff Spiced Rum has the aroma of a strong rum cake; Adam differed, stating it was more of a rum raisin ice cream note. Either way, true to its name this aromatic black cavendish, burley, and Virginia blend doesn't skimp on the spiced rum.

If anyone has had Pipeworks and Wilke's Rumcake, then you will immediately recognize the aroma eminating from the bag. Now of course Carol uses much better leaf so let's not compare that but the flavor of the topping and room note are extremely similar according to my house mates. The usual black Cav, Burley and Virginia ala Captain Black White with a spiced cake confectionery topping applied. Also as usual one must either let it dry overnight or place a couple ounces worth on a baker sheet in the oven for ten minutes to eliminate the PG. One of Sutliffs best Aromatics thus far!!! I agree with StevieB that it's perfect for holidays when the feds take away the Christmas / Holiday blends in 2018. Santa will enjoy this on Christmas Eve as much as the family on Christmas morning or each night of Chanukah! Really sets the mood :-)

Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Spiced Rum.

The moisture of this was exactly how I like it to be upon arrival: slightly moist. I like that because I know it will hold it's own in the cellar. Now, I mixed things up today, rather than a morning smoke of a good English or VaPer, I opted for Peter Stokkebye's Black Currant Cavendish: big mistake! I had to have this to remove the aftertaste!

The smoke's a little different to the usual rum aromatics, there's more flavour than I expected. As well as the rum, I get lots of dark fruit/raisins, and a vanilla flavour. It tastes like exceedingly rich Christmas cake. The tobaccos form quite a heavy character, which works well with the toppings. I don't get any sharp/fresh notes from the Va, but more of a ripeness, with the nutty Burley and vanilla Cavendish completing the Christmas cake character. The burn's good, the temperature's cool, and it leaves a pale ash.

Nicotine: a touch above mild. Room-note: like Christmas.

Sutliff should have marketed this as a Christmas special. Highly recommended:

Four stars.
