A mixture of Virginia and Green River tobaccos blended with an extremely high quality black Cavendish. This blend is smooth and mild with exceptional flavors of toasted marshmallow, maple syrup and vanilla.

Mild Medium Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

If you like a sweet tobacco after a big meal, this one fits nicely. I can't smoke it to often as it is very sweet. I found that allowing it to dry for about ten minutes prior to lighting really helped.My wife likes the room note, an added bonus. My friend is just starting to smoke a pipe and he really likes this blend.

Mild Medium Mild Tolerable

This is a good dessert tobacco. It's aroma is that of toasted marshmallow, maple syrup, and vanilla. While it does smell great, it can be a little too much if you catch my drift. It has a very sweet aroma. Smoking this all of the time though is like eating too much candy. This is a nice sweet treat, but not an all day smoke. I ordered a pound of this, smoked it steady for two weeks { about 3 to 4 bowls a day } and I've had enough! For all you aromatic lovers out there, you'll love this blend. Im going to stick with mild burley blends from now on like Prince Albert and Carter Hall. Heavy aromatics are sickening after awile and you really have to keep up on your pipe cleaning and sweetening.

Mild Medium Mild Pleasant

For me, with the exception of vanilla, maple or spirits added as casing, many aromatics simply just taste sweet but don’t have much more of the flavor often described by the blender. I would go further and say that with some added flavorings, it would be hard to pick them out in a blind taste test. Milan’s Poochie’s is somewhat one of those blends. After drying it, as it’s too wet to smoke straight away, I get some of the vanilla flavor, but mainly it’s just sweet. That’s not a bad thing since I have a sweet tooth. But compared to lighter vanilla blends like Schurch’s Cornola or Erik Stokkebye’s Next Generation 1957, it doesn’t deliver that purer vanilla flavor over the sweet. The same would be true of the maple casing here. Compared to some of my favorite maple blends, this falls short. Poochies is a tasty, sweet aro, but not top shelf for me. It also coats my mouth a bit too, which is something that happens to me with certain black Cavendish’s and is no fault of Milan. In the end Poochies satisfies my sweet tooth, but not my desire for more tobacco taste along with a casing that complements it.

I enjoy this blend. Sweet but pleasing. Burns exceptional well. I am very impressed with the selections from Milan and will be purchasing more blends from them soon. All aromatic smokers should try this blend, it is a very well- blended tobacco and sure to make it in your rotation especially after a heavy meal. An excellent dessert smoke. On that note, I just finished up some spicy buffalo wings and finished the meal with this blend. One word: Satisfied.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

This was a pleasant surprise. This aromatic is definitely an after-dinner/evening dessert pipe treat, on the sweeter side of quality aromatics, and not chemically "drug-store-fodder-nauseating" in any way. The sweetness is not cloying or excessive, but is cumulative, as it begins with the first light and lasts to the bottom of the bowl. Smooth, sweet marshmallow and toasted coconut notes make a wonderful, crowd-pleasing aroma in the room, hair and clothes, with hints of sugared vanilla and cotton candy. The slightly sweet hit in every puff is close in taste to the latter, without seeming artificial or chemically. The tobacco is very good quality, and burns down to a fine grey ash right to the bottom of the bowl, with no gurgle, wetness, goop, dottle, etc. Occasional hard puffing makes nice, rich, silky smoke billows, and it will not bite the tongue, or turn bitter anywhere along the bowl. The aftersmoke taste in the mouth is mild, pleasant natural tobacco, and does not linger excessively. This is a finely crafted occasional treat and will surely satisfy primarily the aromatic sweet-tooth. It was far better quality than anticipated. An easy three stars. Beginner puffers looking for a quality aromatic can try this without reservation and will chuck their chemically, preservative-laden drugstore tins in the fireplace after a few bowls of this quality concoction. Did I mention it is sweet in every hit and, as such, is best appreciated as an occasional treat?
