A cool-smoking, smooth, balanced aromatic blend of Black Cavendish and lemon Virginia's lightly flavored with rich vanilla extracts. Mellow, fragrant, mild... delightful.

Notes: Originally introduced in September, 1989 for the Conclave of Richmond Pipe Smokers, is now part of the Club Blends Series.

The room note rating is set up poorly on this site... It assumes that a strong room note is bad. This is not the case. The room note for this particular tobacco is very pleasing, but not particularly weak. The room note is a definite crowd pleaser. Even people who typically hate pipe smoke will be happy to be in the presence of this stuff.

The packaging is ultra ugly, but who cares, really? Upon opening the vaccuum sealed tin the first thing you notice is the scent of butterscotch. It's almost overpowering actually. The tobacco is mainly dark ribbons with a few flecks of brown and tan. I did find a couple twigs in the tin, which surprised me considering the other signs of extremely high quality.

This is one of the best tobacco's I've ever smoked. It will probably be far too weak for any seasoned pipe smoker, but if you enjoy aromatics like I do, than you will be very pleased with this blend.

After 3 bowls of the stuff, I haven't had to light more than 3 matches. It burns better than any other tobacco I have ever smoked. In this sense, it's perfect.

The taste is not overly sweet... A simple tobacco with a hint of vanilla sweetness.

I'm very impressed with this blend.

Bright citrus has its edge rounded with hint of vanilla. Reminiscent of Coca-Cola (without nearly the the same syrupy sweetness). This is what I smoke if I want something "for warm weather but with a little complexity".

Delicate aromatic with whisps of Vanilla taste throughout the smoke. Clean and mostly dry burn. Lots of Cavendish leaf in this one with a delicate balance of Virginia leaf to add a little body to the blend (but not much).

I submit that this is as good as it gets for those who enjoy light and airy aromatics.

And, for whatever it's worth... I do like the tin art. (-;
