Burley and cavendish intermixed in this ribbon cut blend. Uncertain casing, but very light and not goopy at all. Burns at average rate for ribbons down to gray ash.

Well Paul's review is several years old, but I agree with everything he said. I purchased a few ounces of this blend at a local tobacco shop near Seattle because I liked the smell and feel of it. Like Paul said, it wasn't goopy or overly wet. It felt like a good Cavandish should with a pleasant aromatic to go along. I have had several people comment on how great it smelled while sitting in various public parks smoking it. It is truly a crowd pleaser. The taste is excellent. Kind of "vanilla-ish" but there is more lurking behind the scenes. It is like a great glass of Cognac. It smells pleasant, tastes even better and leaves the smoker, as well as passerby's with a smile on their face as if the aroma brought back some fond memory. Yeah, it's that good.

Purchased From: Smoker's Choice

This is a bulk tobacco that my local tobacconist in Pittsburgh carries. Distributed by Lane, so I'm sure it's available elsewhere possibly under a different name.

Consistency: It's a speckled burely/black cavendish blend, ribbon cut, not too moist.

Flavor/Taste: It's an aromatic, but I can't really put my finger on what the casing is. If I had to pick something I'd say it's vanilla-ish, but not completely. The casing is by no means overwhelming, and provides just the right amount of sweetness to not clog up the pores of the pipe. For this reason I smoke it in my meerschaum a lot. The flavor overall is slightly creamy and semi-sweet. Overall I see it as what a good aromatic should taste like.

Room note: It's a crowd stopper. Another one of those tobaccos that will make other people want to smoke a pipe because of the knock out smell of your pipe.

Strength: I'd say this is would be a medium blend FOR AROMATICS. I don't compare it to English or VA's because those are completely different ballparks. When smoked in a fairly decent sized pipe this provides me with a great relaxing buzz.

Burn: This burns very cool, in meerschaum or in briar. It provides great billowing clouds of smoke, which I absolutely love. Being that it's not very wet it burns down completely to ash as well.

Overall comments: At this moment this is probably my favorite tobacco. I see it as my "comfort smoke" because I know that when I go smoke it it will taste, smell, and smoke exactly the way I want my pipe to do. For those times when you need something constant to settle the waters I turn to this and get lost in thought. If you can find it in your tobacconist, get an ounce. It's well worth it.
