This blend has #1 graded American AAA Burley, Gold Cavendish and Virginia tobaccoswith a mild vanilla casing. A mild smoke and has a wonderful aroma. Very popular if you like vanilla but not too strong. One of J.M. Boswells blends that has been selling well for over 30 years.

Sweet - on the milder side, vanilla. Smooth, cool smoke. Lovely dessert smoke. Tastes a little toasty. Some caramel notes. Big puffs of white smoke. Stayed easily lit. It isn't in my opinion Boswell's best aromatic offering, but it isn't bad either. Their tobacco is always quality no matter what!

This is a good one for me--had a good vanilla taste but not overpowering. No bite and very smooth all day smoke. A nice change from Boswell's Best. Not so harsh on the back of the throat that Boswell's Best seems to leave after smoking every day. I liked it. Nice & mellow satisfaction .

It might be that I just don't like burley based aromatics, but I couldn't really detect much of the vanilla flavor in this one. It has plenty of burley flavor but the vanilla is severely lacking. Does smoke fairly cool and dry, I smoked an entire bowl on just 1 light.

Another good one from Bosewells!

Nothing special here, aside from it being supremely ungifted. I hear the term "all day smoke" tossed around quite often here, but this just may be it. This is hard to get sick of because of how mild it is, yet it does deliver good tobacco flavors when you sit and look for them. No aftertaste that will cloy everything you eat or drink either.

Flavor is light vanilla ontop of a decent burley/VA/cav mix. The tobacco is actually in harmony with the casing rather than caged by it(however mild they may be). Smokes like any other Bosewell; cool, dry, sweet and very little nicotine. May keep a bit better than the other blends as this one is much less cased.

I quite liked this smoke for what it was. It was fairly mild and the vanilla casing definitely doesn't take over. It did have some taste though, but it doesn't exactly hit you in the face. It was a pleasurable smoke and I cannot complain about the price that's for sure. As with most Boswell tobaccos, the room note is great.

This is the only Boswell blend that I can truly say I heartily disliked! It is bland, bland, BLAND! If you want a great vanilla blend, try their Paradise. I bought this blend after having tried both Chocolate Cream and Raspberry Cream, both of which are top notch aromatics. But this was like sawdust with a slight touch of vanilla. Don't waste your time or money. Try one of their dozen other great aromatic blends.

Not nearly enough vanilla for me in the aroma or the taste. Good for those who want a relatively mild tobacco with just the slightest hint of vanilla on the palate and nose.

It's difficult to write a review on a Vanilla flavored tobacco because of its status as a staple in the pipe tobacco world.

With that being said, either you like Vanilla pipe tobaccos or you do not. The best you can do when writing up a review on a blend like Vanilla Creame is to comment on the quality of the blend as a whole, and not on how you view the style of blend.

The tin aroma, or bag aroma I suppose, is delicious with Vanilla Creame. If you leave the bag open for a few minutes, it fills the room with a warm sugary vanilla note that is just wonderful.

Upon lighting this tobacco, you get a pleasant vanilla flavoring that doesn't mask the quality tobacco Boswells always uses. About half-way down the bowl, the Vanilla casing is surprisingly still hanging around, while it's not as strong as the beginning of the smoke. The casing pretty much falls off by the very end of the bowl, with the a toasted tobacco flavor coming through while still maintaining a light body.

All in all, this is another quality blend from Boswells. If you're a fan of that classic vanilla-cased tobacco, this is the blend from you. The room note is amazing too, so you should be well-received by even the nonsmokers around you. It's not my favorite blend from Boswells but it's definitely one I would recommend if it suits your taste.

This Boswell Blend is just as it is described. Mild flavor, very light, and is a good choice for a new pipe smoker. For me....This blend is lacking in any real flavor but it is described as being mild so that is what you should expect. It has a pleasant sweetness, but the vanilla just didn't come through enough for me. I would suggest Boswell's Paradise or christmas cookie if your looking for an awesome vanilla blend!!

Like all the Boswell tobaccos I have tried this is quality tobacco that packs well and burns easily. The moisture content is fine. My only concern really is that it is so mild that it has almost no flavor for my tastes. I burn a hot pipe and so I enjoy the Boswell tobaccos because they have no bite.

If you have a sensitive tongue I recommened this tobacco but if you are looking for flavor then this would be a waste of your time. I would recommend several other Boswells in place of this.

Another fantastic blend from Boswell. I absolutely love the nutty flavoring from the burley and the sweet vanilla tones.

This is one of my favorites from the Boswell's for sure. It smokes very mild and has a great flavor. I do agree with one of the other reviews though, it loses its flavor rather quickly. I would advise not leaving it in the pouch.

Great job, 4 stars!!

Smokes a bit wet. Some of that could be me being a novice.

despite gooping the heel of my pipe up a bit this is probably my favorite vanilla aromatic and I really do enjoy vanilla. Not too strong, not too bland it hits the spot for what it is.

oh and I might add I cant even force it to bite

This is one of my favorites from Boswell. It also has to be the best vanilla blend I've come across. It's just a mild, tasty vanilla blend with a touch of earthyness, maybe a touch of spice. It's a blend to go really easy on to get the full flavor, the minute you start to draw too hard for a fuller smoke it gets a little bite and you can say goodbye to the flavor. It's not an overwhelming vanilla, not too sweet and no fuss...to me it also has a decent tobacco flavor in it's balance. It's one I will keep around...it's a "go to" smoke.

Loaded up a Boswell nosewarmer to enjoy the moment.That's just what i got.Upon lighting this blend it reminded me of Boswell's Christmas Cookie,but as I puffed away the vanilla flavor and aroma became more prominent.This tobacco is not over powering, no tongue bite,lights easy,stays cool,and has a nice aroma.This is a no fuss blend that's on the mild side, but pleasing.Smokes like butter.Nice relaxing smoke.

A nice burning mild smoke with the perfect creamy vanilla backdrop. Does not bite. A great smoke if you are looking for JUST good vanilla flavor without all the other fruity tastes going on.

I confess that I do have a more than occasional desire for a vanilla aromatic. This is indeed one of the better that I have run across. The vanilla is there all the way down the bowl but it does not overwhelm. Not wet or goopy, no bite, very pleasant. Personally I prefer Boswell?s Best for its fuller vanilla flavor.
