A superior aromatic mixture characterized by extra mild black cavendish tobaccos, mature Virginia and a touch of burley. It has been flavored with an extremely mild blend of sweet vanilla type flavors and fresh fruity notes to obtain a longmlasting taste and a very pleasant aroma. Easy to fill into a pipe, slow burning with a cool smoke.

This is a nice quality aromatic.

Vanilla & some fruity component (most probably cherries) are not heavily applied, leaving some true tobacco flavour to show. Nic is mild but not overly so. Burns surprisingly cool and refreshing, never sharp nor goopy. Not my cup of tea, but a nice chance when the sweet tooth comes.

Some cigar leaf will add some meat to the smoke…

Three stars are given as the balance between the quality of the tobacco per se, and my personal preferences.

W. O. Larsen seldom fails to deliver, and Sweet Aromatic is no exception. It's got all the flavor of its base tobaccos, plus a mix of vanilla and cherry to round up an excellent aromatic mixture with no tongue bite and great burning qualities.

When compared to other black cavendish based aromatics smelling like a detergent or fabric softener, it's a well-balanced burley-virginia-black cavendish mixture. I would say 20%, 10%, and 70%, respectively. Virginia is unnoticeably low whereas the burley inside plays a very significant role, that's why the black cavendish does not give any overwhelming taste during the entire smoke. Licking my lips even increases the initial burley note.

Apart from all, the cut of the tobacco is quite unusual. I thought, at first, that my smoke will surely be hot and the bowl will suffer from it because of its thin ribbon cut. Contrarily, it burns perfect.

One should notice that "Sweet Aromatic" (SA) and "Scarlett Passion" (SP) are said to be the same tobacco by its manufacturer. However, in my opinion, they are fundamentally different, still both are fine and worth to give a try. I did not notice any cherry or vanilla in SA, but SP will surely give a nice changing taste of both cherry and vanilla. SP is more aromatic than SA, if compared.

Pipe Used: Corn cob, some Stanwells, some Savinellis

This light aromatic was suggested to me by a Facebook contact, met in one of the various groups dedicated to pipe-smoking. Guys, I'm really glad I followed his advice!!! This is a very good aromatic, not overwhelming, classy, tasty, with a great pouch scent and room note, with hints of fruit and vanilla. This mixture is very easy to pack and to light, and once started it provides a very pleasant smoke. Just be careful not to draw too fast, it can burn!

Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

This was my first pipe tobacco I ever tried and must I say, it is tasted somewhat bland compared to many other blends. When I first got it, I expected the taste to be as glamorous as how people praised pipe tobacco in those pipe forums, but it was , like I said, bland. As for tongue bite, take it slow because the bowl tends to get real hot with this puppy.

In retrospect, it was a horrible starter pipe tobacco for me and it still sits in my drawer till this day. I am not sure if i'll be able to finish it...

Just finished my second pouch of this tobacco and I think W.O. Larsen never disappoint you, their tobaccos give you want you want. The Sweet Aromatic is not to strong and doesn't punch your tongue with a strong taste. Also, the cut is fine and easy, it smokes by itself and it doesn't requires a strong attention during your smoking session. It is an all day tobacco.

A quite decent aromatic with a pleasantly sweet-tart flavouring which remind of vanilla and red berries (something like red currant and sour cherry) it smokes easy, cool and is absolutely tolerable to the mouth, the hitch is that it has just a bit of tobacco taste.

As most Larens? tobaccos, Sweet Aromatic is made from high quality leaf, careful blending, and a topping that is at once flavorsome, sweet-ish, but not at all cloying, dense or enervating. The tobacco taste is there, but it?s mild, elegant and fresh.

I like most Larens? blends because of these qualities, and because they are far from having an artificial or chemical undertone. The tobacco, as noted, is not musky or humid. Like Selected Blend No. 80 it?s rather dry, but not in the CD sense of dryness: it?s more a natural state, perfect for immediate consumption, and with excellent burning qualities.

The flavor and aroma are very nice. There?s a certain politeness to most Larsens?, and this one is no exception. Most civilized people will compliment the smoker on the aroma. It does lack a bit of strength and it can become slightly dull. But if having coffee and just wanting to relax without annoying anybody around you, this one of those ?perfect blends?. A nice change of pace, even for those none-aromatic smokers.

I picked up this tobacco while visiting Japan. Prices there are very similar to retail prices in continental Europe, and about 1/2 of the duty free prices in Singapore or Dubai airports. I enjoy the W.O Larsen offerings due to high quality of tobacco and careful blending in their aromatics. This was no exception.

While others commented on "blandness" of this blend, I find it superior to MacBaren's "Vanilla" version which I found overwhelming (and I am a committed aromatic smoker). The pouch releases amazing aroma upon opening, with good quality tobacco smell combined with a gentle vanilla and possibly cherry undertone. No chemical scents detected. The leaf is a ribbon cut mix of light brown and medium tan with no loose sticks or dust. The moisture content was low enough to light up without drying first. I did not pack the bowl tight, relying on gravity and gently helping the contents to settle only with a minimum use of the tamper. The aroma is very pleasant and the taste is mild without bite. Contents burn gently to a fine ash, with no gurgling or aftertaste. Vanilla and cherry / currant tones are light, perhaps best described as a more refined and complex 1-Q or a less sweet version of Red Amphora. The first half of the bowl is very pleasant and attracts good comments from non-smokers. Second half is slightly flatter but remains pleasant. It has no complexity of "Signature" blend, but is a very decent, undemanding all-day smoke. Recommended.

I tried this tobacco about a month ago, and i have to say that it's not bad at all. It is a mild tobacco, for every occasion. The aroma is great, but sometimes the bowl can go really hot. Pipers searching for a change, and pipers who like vanilla tobaccos, you have to try this.
