Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

The vanilla in the topping and from the black cavendish is the star flavor. You can taste the nutty, earthy burley a little, but it's a minor player. Has a very mild nic-hit. Burns on the warm to hot side, and leaves too much moisture in the bowl. Needs some relights. I got a chemical note or two, and too much syrup. The after taste is plain. Is an all day smoke.

Tastes sure do vary when it comes to our likes and dislikes in pipe tobacco. A friend and fellow pipe club member absolutely loves this stuff and buys it by the barrel. At a recent meeting he offered me a bowl. Since I'll try just about any legal tobacco, I loaded up quickly in a pipe I reserve for aromatics. I unloaded just as quickly. I've tasted goopy aromatics many times in my life and this one ranks right up there with the best (or worst) of 'em.

Very Mild Extra Strong Extremely Mild (Flat) Pleasant

There are a few decent drug store aromatics that are decent Steady Eddie smokes. Sometimes I'll got to them for a change of pace, or working on the road and run short.

This stuff is horrid, wicked heat and bite, sickly sweet, sticky like jam. Maybe it was cased with Robitussin cough syrup . . . "drugstore blend". They took the term way over the top with this one.

This to me is a cheap version of Capt. Black white, but not half as good.It tastes cheap and lacks flavour a good black should posses, and it bites a bit too.

Mild Medium Mild Pleasant

Just because it can be found everywhere and it is inexpensive, doesn't make it any good. But because I didn't find it so bad when using a filter I can give it 2 stars. Might be good for someone starting out if they use a filter because it doesn't bite or get too harsh, but the filter does remove almost all the flavor; casing and tobacco. Otherwise, it would have to be the last thing available for me to smoke it on a rare occasion. Probibly would try summac before that though.

Extremely Mild Very Strong Overwhelming Pleasant

The epitome of a drug-store, hyper sweet, goopy, cloying-vanilla-laden blend (or, if you prefer, the antithesis of what pipe tobacco should be).

Mild Strong Mild to Medium Tolerable

I concur completely with the other reviewers. Middleton's aromatics are usually decent, if not exciting. This blend is unfortunately a perfect example of all that is wrong with drug store tobacco. If you must have an inexpensive aromatic, buy one of the giant "sack o' smokes" blends from a drugstore. It's cheaper, and tastes better to boot!

Extremely Mild Very Strong Extremely Mild (Flat) Pleasant to Tolerable

I have to agree with my fellow reviewers on this one. Chemical tobacco at its worst (or at its best, depending). A hot tasting cough syrup would fairly describe this blend. A warning from the Surgeon General on the pouch of this tobacco should read: Caution, smoking this blend will permanently impair your sense of taste.
