This stuff is soooooooooo good it should be illegal.

There is absolutely no tongue bite, no matter how aggressively you smoke it and it tastes as good as it smells, rich, sweet caramel, but subtle.

Burns cool and leaves your pipe smelling nicely with a caramel afterglow.

The only thing I would want is more caramel topping......... I absolutely love this......... {I smoked a whole tin in 2 days and I normally only smoke a bowl a day}.....

A black cavendish smoker's delight. It crackles as it burns if you don't dry it first, and can leave a little moisture, especially if you're not a dry smoker. I prefer to dry it out just a little first, but not entirely because some of the flavor gets lost then. There's a pleasant vanilla, carmel, slightly buttery, molasses, honey taste that is rich and consistent throughout the smoke. The vanilla flavor is the main player here, as is usually the case in this kind of blend. I've smoked quite a bit of it even if it's a little sweeter than I prefer. But if you are a BC smoker, you'll become addicted to this and forget most of the other BC blends. As for the room note, well, if you're single, you may not be for long if women smell the wonderful aroma this mixture produces. One of the top BC mixtures on the market.

PROLOGUE: What I have noticed from the many reviews and forums I have read is that your love for Molto Dolce greatly depends on what you expect when you pop a tin of fresh tobacco. If you have smoked for years and have expectations set in stone, this one is going to be very off-putting at the start. However, if you are new to the pipe and know little, you won't even notice a thing. BUT I emplore you to give it a fair shot. It is a fantastic aromatic. I get to this in my tin observation....

REVIEW:

In the tin: The smell of Molto Dolce is absolutely incredible when you pop the tin. The description is dead on: notes of honey, caramel and vanilla. It smells like a very elaborate dessert. In the background, there are some spices, but they are very subdued. But here's the kicker....It is oily and moist...and not just a little. It is VERY oily tobacco. But as I said, don't let that scare you off. If you give it a good charring light, it burns just fine. It pops and crackles, my guess is, due to the oily coating. That being said, I would definitely dedicate a pipe to it or count on ghosting any pipe you use.

Lighting and flavor: I have never had a problem getting it lit after a charring light. The smoke is billowy and thick and the room note is incredibly pleasant. Flavor is mild to medium, but the caramel and honey comes through and melds with the vanilla perfectly. It is very flavorful and enjoyable. It is an incredibly cool smoke, but if pushed, develops a burnt taste, probably due to the sugars burning at too hot of a temperature. If you take your time, you can find the spices that were first noticed in the tin. They are so subdued, I could not nail down exactly what they were. Not "hot" spicy....more of a spice in the vein of a mulled cider, but certainly not strong. There is not a ton of depth to this aromatic, but definitely more depth than your average aro. The actual tobacco flavor is subdued and is mild through the bowl. However, overall aromatic flavor is consistent from beginning to end...which is a rarity with aros.

Final thoughts: Some drying may help a bit, but I have smoked it right out of the tin with no issues. Once lit, it has probably the most pleasant room note and flavor of any tobacco I've tried thus far. That being said, it is definitely more of a dessert tobacco, although I would never mind smoking it all day. It is sweet, smooth, creamy and enjoyable from first light to ash dump.

Molto Dolce

Tin Note: Great Aroma !!!

Tobacco: Nice soft leaf good quality tobaccos, with a variation of cuts, Good Color

The Burn: Straight out of the Tin it tends to burn a little wet towards the end of the bowl Slightly air dried helped. Either way this tobacco blend is full of great flavors ! Smooth Rich and Flavorful!

With the Honey, Carmel and Vanilla This would be a great tobacco blend to start a new pipe out on ( to get a jump start on a good cake formation)

Try smoking this one in a pipestone or clay pipe = you will love it

Room Note: WONDERFUL

my 5 star rating = 4

Now I see why everyone wants this to be sold in large tins or 1 pound bags !!!

I got a tin of this free from JR Cigar after purchasing some other pipe tobacco blends. Lovely tin note upon opening the lid, but a very wet tobacco offering. Literally drenched in casing. A predominantly dark leaf that was oily looking and stained my fingers with loading my pipe. While lighting, it sizzled as if I was lighting pure sugar. Surprisingly, it did not smoke hot. I could not actually taste any vanilla or caramel at first, but with slow smoking, both peaked through from time to time. There was a slight spiciness to the taste which I attributed to the honey - almost a combination of honey and sen sen, and mild at that. Not much in the way of tobacco flavor, and there was the ever present taste of PG. All in all, if you are looking for any tobacco taste whatsoever, look elsewhere. The room note may be appealing, but not enough of a draw to put this into regular rotation for me due to the lack of tobacco flavor and the PG presence. I can't recommend this one and most likely won't finish the tin. While I think about it, it reminded me of C&D's Pennington Gap which I did not care for.

A very remarkable blend from Sutliff Private Stock. The Cavendish process does bring out the tobacco's natural sweet taste. It comes through very well. This blend is mild to the taste and the room note is provacative and very pleasant. The flavoring is a combination of vanilla, caramel, and honey. This can be likened to smoking a creamy, sweet dessert. The W.A.R. (Wife Approval Rating) for Molto Dolce was two thumbs up!! A first! Even the grandkids came in, whiffed, and wanted some of Pappy's candy. A four star Aro. Moist, but not overly moist. I would highly recommend Aro lovers try a tin of this tobacco. Let your nose decide.

The only really nice thing about this tobacco is it's room note and the delicious smell coming from the tin.

It was extremely wet. So wet, I imagine you could wring water from it. I normally do not judge a tobacco on it's moisture, as most comes wet. Drying it is part of the "ritual". This however after an hour setting on the table under a ceiling fan was still as wet as it was in the tin.

On lighting it stated popping like crazy, almost like it has oil in it or something.

Taste was nothing really like the tin smell, just more of a plastic taste. I don't know where that came from but it wasn't really pleasant.

Overall, I would not recommend this tobacco. It may be good if you are just graduating from captain black or something, but there is much better stuff out there.

I found this tobacco to have a distinctive artificial smell. Despite the advertised flavor, I don't smell caramel or any other food product. Instead, I detect a vague alcohol topping that I can't quite place.

I detected no flavor in the smoke, even after trying this blend in several dedicated aromatic pipes. I persevered through the entire tin, hoping to detect the wonderful flavors which have garnered this blend much praise, but could only detect sweet steam.

There are many aromatics I enjoy, but this is not one of them. Too wet, too chemical smelling in the tin, no real flavor. I tried to like this one, but it just wouldn't click with me.

The ultimate social smoke. If you catch women staring at you while youre smoking Dolce chances are shes wanting to wrap her lips around your pipe. This is strickly a sweet aromatic and designed as such. So, if that's what you are looking for read on. The tobacco taste is stripped away and juiced up so much the rich flavorings leaves an oily substance on your fingers. I don't dry mine out, I like it wet and havent met a tobacco that is stronger than a flame for goodness sake. Even wet its not so bad lighting and it stays lit. Smoke it in a sweet new cob for an orgasmic euphoria effect.

I have to admit that I am really excited about reviewing Sutliff’s Molto Dolce. Full disclosure here; MD is my 2nd favorite tobacco. A few years ago when I became a piper, I asked some people on a few forums which Aros I should try and Sutliff’s Molto Dolce kept showing up. “I have to check that out” said my inner self. I even like the name. I knew that Dolce was Spanish for Candy so I was not too surprised upon researching this unique name Motlo Dulce, that I found that Dolce could be used in a sentence to denote sweet, the good life. It even goes so far to be used as the word Cherished. And Molto means Very or Extremely. So I am thinking this tobacco has been named “Very Sweet Candy”. That right there will eliminate this tobacco from some of the purists reading this. But if you are an Aro lover, as I am, keep reading. Even some of you purists out there may be a little surprised at what I have to say about this.

When I finally got my hands on a tin, I was not disappointed. In fact, upon popping the cap, I was “Molto Affascinato” by the tin note. Very Captivated. I know, strong words but let me explain. This is the first tobacco that doesn’t smell like tobacco to me. It smells like something different. In fact, I have never smelled something quite like this. It pulls you in and beckons you to keep sniffing it again and again. The can says it is “rich and creamy texture of vanilla, caramel and honey” but I can’t quite pick out any of those in the tin note. I wish I had the vocabulary to describe this better. It’s amazing though.

When you sift your fingers through the tobacco in the can, it feels a bit damp but it also leaves a bit of invisible residue on your fingers. This tells me it’s heavily cased and therefore, I would expect it to burn hot.

I am smoking this is a gorgeous Boswell straight that the fine folks at Boswell’s pipes made in 2012. I’d probably recommend letting it sit out for about 15 min before you light it up but I just can’t wait so here goes.

This is some dang good tobacco. The smoke is cool and refreshing. It’s amazing that there is zero tongue bite and does not burn hot like I’d expect. What’s really amazing about this tobacco is that somehow Sutliff manages to back down the Cady smell in the actual smoke to just the right level. It’s definitely not overly sweet but strikes the right balance. The Caramel and Honey are extremely subtle but my tongue doesn’t taste the Vanilla at all. The room note is pretty amazing and I rarely smoke this without someone commenting on how much they love this scent. Final grade is two thumbs up. I bet everyone here can guess what Molto Deliziosa means.

This tobacco is advertised as having flavors of honey, caramel, and vanilla. I have to say that if you like extremely sweet smokes with practically no tobacco taste then this is for you. "Molto Dolce" literally translates to mean "very sweet", and this blend is just that. This blend is highly cased and will give literally no tongue bite. I guess I will put my review as a two-parter: 1) if you like strongly flavored aromatics and very sweet tobacco then look no further, but 2) having prefer natural tobacco taste with little to no flavoring, this blendjust isn't for me.

Here I go again, bucking the wisdom of my peers. But, in my defense was moved to put this blend on my wishlist by reading the rave reviews of members whom I have gleaned wisdom from in the past.

Having said that, it's not for me. The tin note was inviting, vanilla, caramel and a alcohol scent...whiskey? It was propylene wet, slick to the point where when squeezed it lacked any tackiness. That right there let me know what I was in for-a inorganic experience.

Now it starts out tasty, I get a vanilla-nougat taste through mid-bowl, but as I reach midbowl a coolness not unlike that of a menthol cigarette starts to grow. No menthol flavoring whatsoever, mind you, just something chemically happening-attached to the burley perhaps?

It soon grows to the point that it's all I sense, and its absolutely chemical in origin....and not good. Then it's replaced with tongue bite, even though I'm sipping slowly. And get this, as you light it it crackles and pops like a pine camp fire. Any attempt to blow back into the stem is met by ruin, as the baccy becomes like a powder keg, blowing out the bowl game covering me as if I was in Pompeii back in the gap. All the while all of these reactions go on without any excessive heat in the bowl...weird.

So here in the States we the ill-informed masses are inundated with advertising about organic this and organic that, mainly concerning stuff that already is organic by definition.

Molto Dolce bucks that trend, however, by legitimizing the need for the obvious...its so laden with chemicals it doesn't qualify as being organic. Perhaps it's actually synthetic after all...?

For my tastes Deep Hollow has been the most authentic vanilla, but this blend only makes three attempts at findings a quality vanilla- there's gotta be something out there....sigh. Deep six time for this blend :(

I picked up this blend after hearing an add on pipes magazine radio show (podcast) the lady's voice in the commercial sold me - j.k. Haha. I looked up reviews here and saw the good ratings (esp. Jiminks) and thought why not. I bought a tin here in RI (expensive $17!) but can get it online much cheaper it's the taxes. So I am smoking my first bowl, although it may be premature to judge, I am really really liking this blend!! If it were based on my first bowl alone it would be a favorite already! I will say it is, as others stated, very wet upon opening and crackles when lit however there is zero tongue bite, great taste, smell/room note. It stayed lit pretty well but did require relighting a few times. Overall if you like aromatics or have a sweet tooth at times give this a whirl! Happy Smoking!

Absolutely delicious aromatic. Got a free sample from an order of a custom pipe. It is fairly moist in the bag, but the smell was very nice. Vanilla and caramel. Lighting it up, you taste the vanilla and caramel immediately. It's not too strong, somewhat on the mild side. I can taste a faint bit of honey too. This reminds me of the Boswell aromatics like No Bite Delite (this has no bite either), or Pennsylvania Dutch treat. Very tasty and enjoyable sweet smoke when you want it.

This is a great aromatic that is very mild on the tobacco end of the spectrum. It has a distinctive pop and crackle when first lit, and the flavors are primarily vanilla/honey with some bread and caramel in the background. My wife said this smelled a lot sweeter than things I usually smoke. Aftertaste was pleasant. I smoked it straight from the tin with no drying.

The mouth feel is very soft, and there is no harshness here at all. As an aromatic, this is a 4 star blend. If you are a fan of the vanilla/honey black cavendish blends, buy some now. You will really like it.

In terms of delivering a flavoring, this blend holds the record hands down for the sweetest, creamiest, and quite frankly the most flavorful American style aromatic that I have come across. The tin note is a heavy, almost boozy sweet spiced-vanilla flavor that translates quite nicely when it's smoked. Molto Dolce is very moist out of the tin so it's best to give it adequate dry time, otherwise the overall flavor profile takes a turn for the worse past the mid bowl point.

Upon opening my tin I was convinced that I couldn't smoke this blend. I'll try anything once and I am happy I did because I was wrong. I like this stuff. It tastes good, performs pretty well & smells very nice. It's sugary but has no bite. I will definitely continue to smoke this on those occasions when I want something that is uncompromisingly sweet and simple.

First opened to a sweet honey molasses flavored tobacco, dark mix. It sort of reminded me of what I imagine a candy factory could smell like. Upon lighting, I gave it no drying time, it took to lighting well, though it felt a tiny bit oily.

I found the smoke to be enticing. I caught hints of fruit, molasses, medium strength clove, honey, and a nice nutty sweetness. I felt no tongue burn, but did sense a tingle like smoking clove cigarettes. The after taste was nice, it did not last long... I love sweet tobaccos, and this was a great beginner tobacco beginner. I think I will keep this around for a bit.

Great tin note. 100% Pina Colada to me. Wonderful room note. The taste, however, is all topping and no tobacco. Vanilla's the top note in the flavoring with honey taking up the second spot, but tobacco taste is nowhere present. Extremely mild. This is for aromatic smokers who want something very sweet, but it was a bit too sweet for me.

The first thing one notices is the aroma from the tin. It is wonderfully delightful. It packed well and lit easy. The second thing is the room note. According to the gentlemen sitting next to me smoking cigars, it is very pleasant. An added bonus my wife loves the aroma. It is not offensive at all.

As for the taste, the sweetness of the Cavendish is present but not overpowering. I can taste a hint of the caramel and the vanilla of course and the honey as well, which is the flavor one is left with at the end of the puff. At least for me. It is slightly creamy (vanilla, I presume) and with the honey flavor, it lends itself to being more of a dessert smoke I would think.

The Smoke, some crackeling, which stopped once properly lit. I love the thick, rich and fragrant clouds of smoke this has. The tin aroma transfers itself over to the smoke, not like most aromatics, where it will dissipate. And the strong aroma stays throughout the smoke.

Overall this has all I like in an aromatic. From start to finish I loved this blend. Thick and rich, yet cool with no bite at all.

Smoked this right after finishing off a tin of their Mountain Pass blend. Got to say, I was majorly disappointed. The tobacco seemed a lesser quality than the latter, and very sticky. The smell almost made me think it was mentholated. Upon smoking it, I got the same feeling. Although it has vanilla up front, somewhere in the there made me feel like I was smoking a Newport. I am not completely turned off from it, just this pales in comparison to Mountain Pass blend in every way. On the bright side, room note was nice and zero tongue bite (and I smoke like a train).

Dessert in a pipe. It's smooth, sweet without being cloying, has a room note that makes smiling people walk over and ask what I'm smoking. In the tin it's so sumptuous that it almost seems a shame to burn it--just keep it in the tin, pop the top and smell it for a thrill. But no, the taste makes it worth the price, which is steep for me. Yes, it's wet to the point of gooey, and sometimes hard to light or keep lit. Nevertheless, it's my "treat yourself" smoke. If I could afford to smoke it all the time, that's probably what I'd do, and forsake all others. Sutliff doesn't make it in an 8oz. size, which is a true pity.

Terrific aromatic blend and a winner in my book. Smells good in the tin, and the room note is delectable. Tobacco and aromatic flavor are mild on the tongue, but not vague or wanting. Sweet notes, but in no way cloying. MD is a smooth smoking mixture. It burns well out of the tin despite something of an oily, sticky feel to the leaf. Absolutely no chemical, medicinal, or industrial taste as with so many American-style aromatics. Leaves little moisture and dottle at the heel of the bowl. A perfect indoor smoke.

I received a 1.5 oz tin gratis from Altadis. Good marketing, because I will try other Sutliff offerings I probably would not have otherwise.

As an unashamed fan of aromatics, I went for this on the basis of the reviews on this site and I was not disappointed. Opening the tin, I would describe the combination of aromas as rather "in your face", very sweet with the overall effect bordering on "feminine". A fraction more and I suspect I would have been completely overpowered but Sutliff obviously know what they are doing and have created something that really is a pleasure from start to finish - the smoke is as good as the tin aroma and develops beautifully as the bowl progresses. The snap crackle and pop of the burning tobacco as you take a draw is also something of a unique feature and one I rather like until I stop and wonder what chemical additives might be causing it. And talking of chemical additives, I have had a single tin on the go for over 10 months now and it still has not dried out and it still is very smokeable. Is that a good thing? And then there is the really thick soupy gloop left at the bottom of the bowl.............But hell, I am smoking tobacco here, what am I doing worrying about chemical additives? This is definitely not for those who like their tobacco pure and unadulterated but for the rest of us, it is magic.

You get what you paid for, and it is exactly as it is advertised: an aromatic. The tin note is precisely the room note. I would describe it as "cinnamon pancakes." The taste is incredibly sweet, and the natural flavors of the tobacco are overpowered to the point of nonexistence. Over all a very good aromatic blend, and a terrific dessert smoke. But it wasn't what I was looking for. It is a more potent version of Cornell and Diehl's Irish Blessing.

This is in a league of its own. Everything it says on the tin and then some. Burns cool and dry and long, despite the apparent wetness out of the tin. Some mild bitterness as the bowl progresses but nothing so untoward as to break the character of this fine tobacco.

Predominant tin and room note is vanilla, followed by caramel. I can't detect the honey. The chocolate I think comes from the burley itself. Lovely, creamy mouth feel and no tongue bite or gurgle at all.

The tin and room notes are full volume on first opening but if left in the opened tin rather than decanting, this tones down considerably within days, and subsequent bowls allow the quality tobaccos to shine. As long as this remains in production there seems no reason to cellar, because it smokes perfectly as it is.

Got this based on these reviews. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It is awesome! If you are not an aro person, stay the heck away. If you are, this is the tastiest blend out there. It beats any aro, particularly for sweetness, mildness, room note and longevity of taste. No bite at all. Strong casing, but if that's what you want......you've got it in spades. Only drawback is that the tin needs drying out for about a day. That being said, I'd be smoking this stuff 24-7. I just wish they had it larger tins.

Molto Dolce is my favorite aromatic, a friend sent me a few tins of Sutliff blends with my pipe and this blend was in it. Warning: it is a little different from your average aromatic. It's got a great flavor and the Honey and Carmel really show up in the smoke.

The tin note is fantastic, the room note is great. This will definitely please even the pickiest of wives. The taste is amazing, you can really taste every little flavor in it.

It is a little wet straight out of the tin, but it will smoke alright. For those a little pickier you'd be fine to dry it out for a little bit.

Easy enough to smoke, easy enough to keep lit.

I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. From the newest pipe smokers to the oldest. Just approach it with an open mind and know that you can and will be surprised.

Yes, it really is what all the other reviews say. The tin note is overpoweringly sweet with caramel and cinnamon and other sweet notes, and the room note, well the room note is the least smoky smelling, most aromatic and sweet room note I've come across in a long time. Guaranteed crowd pleaser. It is very sticky feeling, wet almost, and crackles madly on the first few lights but settles into an easy burn. Tastes decent too. While not something I would smoke a regular basis, a good tin to keep around for company.

I was very pleased and surprised to open my mailbox not long ago and pull out a box from Sutliff Tobacco. Inside were a tin each of their Maple Street and the much exalted Molto Dulce. I have to say; Molto Dulce is absolutely my favorite aromatic blend in my 35-plus years of smoking a pipe. The tin note is not just sweet, but it smells like cookie flavored tobacco. As others have noted, the tobacco does seem very moist. In fact it is sorta oily to the touch, and it will stick to your fingers, but please don't let that put you off trying this. It packs easily and should be done with a gentle touch to prevent it from heating up due to a tight pack. The charring light does take a bit of heat and persistence, and it will crackle and pop in the process. Again, do not despair for this is normal, as many have noted. Once lit, THIS is the way you should be able to taste an aromatic tobacco blend. For me, there is a hint of cinnamon, along with the sweet, smooth brown sugar flavor of the combination of tobacco and casing. It tastes much like freshly baked pastries. The room note is very much reminiscent of our kitchen while my wife is baking cookies (for the grandchildren, of course) Warm, and gently sweet to the olfactory senses. If you haven't already tried this excellent tobacco blend, I recommend it very highly. A solid FOUR STARS!

Upon opening the tin I smelled almost a fig aroma although the tin says vanilla, caramel, and honey. During the charring light there was some crackling and popping. On then true light the vanilla flavor became prominent. After the first third of the bowl the vanilla was joined by the caramel, and honey. From here the flavor stayed consistent. The room note was delicious throughout the bowl. The tobacco burned well with minimal re-lights and no tongue bite at all. This is a great aromatic.

A superb blend by Sutliffe and easily in my top 5 for aromatics. Very sweet, tastes to me like a cross between creme brûlée and a vanilla flan. Texture is buttery and gives off the most wonderful aroma - a sure fire crowd pleaser. Virtually no bite unless you chug away, so it definitely beats out MacBarren Vanilla in my book. Took a light surprisingly well too considering it was so wet straight out of the tin. Burned down to a clean white ash with no dottle, again, much to my surprise (and delight)! If you like vanilla aromatics, this may be THE blend to go with. So far, I'm quite impressed with the private stock lineup.

I've been smoking this since the sample I got from the last CORPS Show...should've gotten more. Been ordering it from Pipes & Cigars ever since. I smoke all categories of tobaccos, from burley on through. Great tin aroma, stickier than Black Cordial but surpasses it in smokability. Produces a caramel, vanilla, cherry flavor and aroma. I have enough tobacco to supply a tobacconist several times over (except for C&D), but this has been my primary Aromatic since Richmond. Since I learned a while back to pack "wet" aromatics very loose, my appreciation has magnified greatly. This is a great "public" tobacco. Everyone loves the aroma and the taste is incredible. It is wet in the tin, which is why you should pack it with a light hand. There is a snap crackle and pop upon first light that may distract you but stay with it please. Sip it slowly to get the taste and smell. The flavors change throughout the bowl IMHO. Goes from honey, to caramel, to vanilla and back. It's good on DGTeeing and re-lights. My only qualm is it's not in a bigger tin. Highly recommended year round.

Remarkable aromatic - never had anything like it. Tin note ? A real lady-killer; my receptionist nearly swooned when I offered her a whiff.

Very moist, but required only one re-light after initial charring / light.

Taste matches tin precisely.

No bite whatsoever - and I tried.

Room note is spectacular.

Immediately ordered more.

Update: smokes well in both filtered (Vauen) and unfiltered (Stanwell) with no gurgle or bite at any point, despite liberal casing, etc.

Burn does benefit from some drying (I dried for a half day), fairly loose pack, and some further tearing of longer ribbons.

Wonderful stuff.

This blend has an amazing room and tin note. It is on the sweet side so it isn't for everybody. To me the taste is a mix of vanilla and cherry. It was very moist coming out of the tin so recommend drying but not as difficult to light as I thought it would be. The only minor quibble is it has a slight aftertaste almost like burnt sugar or caramel that may not appeal to some. I like sweet aromatics so it is a favorite with me.

But not so tightly as to be unsmokable. The flavoring is quiet pleasant. And the tobacco being moist makes it easier to handle from tin to pipe. I do see that Sutliffe has a large tobacco selection.

He makes himself scarce in a hurry when I break out one of my English blends, but I have to chase him away whenever I'm smoking this stuff. This is my go-to aromatic and I especially enjoy it with my coffee in the morning. If I have one complaint about Molto Dolce it's the fact that it's only available in 1.5 ounce tins.

AROMA: Upon opening the tin, I was greeted with the pleasant aroma of vanilla and maraschino cherries. It kind of reminded me of a very sweet freshly baked fruitcake with a vanilla custard topping. Yup, it smelled delicious!

FEEL: Like many have said, the tobacco was quite moist (horrible word, I know) so I decided to pack the pipe and do the initial light and let it sit for 45 minutes or so. When I finally did light it and start smoking, I still had a lot trouble keeping it lit. No doubt, some extra dry time will do it good.

SMOKE: As for the taste of the smoke, it was quite mild with a bit of sweet vanilla flavour to it. There was no harshness whatsoever, and I picked up very little on the retrohale. As much as the tobacco kept requiring a relight because of dampness, surprisingly I didn't experience any tongue bite. The room note was very pleasant and had a sweet vanilla aroma, which I prefer to any vanilla scented candle I have tried thus far.

VERDICT: I quite liked Molto Dolce and will continue to smoke the rest of the tin. If for some weird reason something drastic happens to change how I feel while finishing up the tin, I will definitely report back. But, as it stands I would recommend Molto Dolce, especially to those pipers who like a good aromatic now and again!

I opened, smoked and set this tin aside some 6 months ago. I do this with tobacco's that do not meet my immediate taste. Rather than throw a tobacco away, i give it a bit of a rest before I try it again. This tin still had a pretty strong smell of honey and caramel when I lifted the lid, and was certainly drier than when I first opened it... I packed the bowl of my pipe with some skepticism but was profoundly pleased at what I found. A wonderfully mild tobacco with a ghost of a flavor balanced somewhere between juicy fruit and spiced rum. The room note was decidedly maple/honey. A great smoke for beginners or lovers of tasty aromatics.

This is my first review gang. I smoke strictly Aros, and prior to smoking this blend my fave was Admirals Choice - Vanilla Cavendish. However, now the Admiral has been demoted. This blend is now my Favorite!

Tin: Very moist. I actually dried this out some before smoking. The tin aroma was nice and sweet and I picked up what i thought was a hint of Roses?

The Smoke: Some crackeling, which stopped once properly lit. I love the thick, rich and fragrant clouds of smoke this has! Nice and smokey! The tin aroma transfers itself over to the smoke,not like most Aros, where it will dissipate. And the strong aroma stays throughout the smoke.

Overall this has all I like in an Aromatic. From start to finish I loved this blend. Thick and rich, yet cool with no bite at all. 4 stars all the way.

I have been puffing on this particular tobacco for almost a week solid. I have been trying it in different size/type pipes. I find this tobacco quite amazing. It is very wet, but that actually seems to help it out in XL bowl pipes. The taste, while pleasant and smooth in all of my pipes, does seem to be much better in the XL bowl pipe. I have tried drying it out a bit before smoking, and it does change the flavor slightly. I taste more of a honey flavor when it is dryer as opposed to the thick vanilla flavor I get smoking it without drying. The only tobacco I have come across with a sort of similar flavor is Mac baren Vanilla creme. If you tend to prefer aromatics like I do, you should definitely give it a try. If you also happen to have a B&M around the corner that is a dealer, like I do, Then chances are they will give you a tin to sample for free. As this blend is the most common for the company to mail out as a free sample when one is requested.

Definitely a very damp tobacco due to the casing. I received a sample at my local pipe shop and after smoking it I immediately went back and bought a tin. It smells great and has a good mild but sweet flavor to it. Makes me want to have a hot chocolate. I also taste a little cinnamon in it which rounds it out well. I had to relight it a few times but that wasn't an issue. I can sometimes smoke a little quickly which can lead to severe tongue bite if I'm not careful but there wasn't any with this. The wife loves the smell of this, also which makes it a slam dunk to smoke in the house. A definite plus in the winter time.

I wanted to try this tobacco for a very long time since many of my friends raved about it being the "ultimate aromatic".

It smells great out of the tin, almost like a creme brulee. It is a little too gooey as it is so some drying time is necessary. Some reviewers have talked about the cracking and popping they hear when lighting it. This can be minimized by letting it dry out.

In my opinion, this is a much better tobacco than Lane 1-Q flavor wise. It's a very complex aromatic as the flavors really do range from caramel to honey to vanilla and other realms altogether. Although it's very good, I prefer Archduke Ferdinand a little bit more than this tobacco for an aromatic.

It is a wonderful dessert tobacco that is great after a meal, or if you want to attract beautiful Italian ladies that will take your pipes ;)

Very Mild Very Strong Very Full Very Pleasant

(I am a newer and irregular pipe smoker. My reviews are subject to my preferences and tastes and pipe smoking habits)

Rich, thick, very sweet smoke that has a mix of honey/caramel/vanilla flavour. I like an aromatic to taste as great as it smells, and this does just that. It can handle a fair amount of heavy puffing before the great taste disappears, but seems impossible to get it to bite. If you have a taste for aromatics, odds are you will enjoy Molto Dolce. It doesn't dry out no matter what and when you light this up, it crackles and pops.

If you are not a fan of aromatics, this won't change your mind.

Mild Medium Medium to Full Very Pleasant

Great full cased aromatic. Everything it ways it is. Great creamy taste, very smooth and cool smoke with no tongue bite. sip it slow and it will urge you to smoke another bowl before your done with your first. A blend that keeps delivering full aroma and flavor all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. A little goopy at the end but no where near as much as i thought there would be. Baring in mind that this first smoke was directly out of the tin with no time to air or dry as most would think of doing because of it's stickiness. A little crackle and pop but only on charring light, from there on it's smooth sailing. Remember to pack light and smoke light, you won't regret it. Opening the tin and first sniff was very pleasing, the caramel and honey was definitely there but for me, the vanilla was more present during smoking. What a nice smoke, and no doubt a crowd pleaser, I would without doubt smoke this in front of any reformed smoker.

Received this free sample and gave it a try. Found it to be quite enjoyable and just the right moisture content for myself. My wife relegates me to the garage to enjoy my leisurely past time. As I was enjoying the Molto Dolce, she stepped into the garage and said, "Now that is how a pipe should smell". Needless to say, she was quite appreciative of the nice, mellow aroma.

Sweet, creamy with vanilla. None of the flavors or aroma over power. I was given a sample by a friend and at first, was not too fond of it. The second time I tried it, months later, I really enjoyed it. It is sweet, but not like a drugstore tobacco sweet. Get this burning right to where you can sip on it and it becomes a wonderful experience.

Creamy and Smooth. Sweet and rich flavors abound in this one. The complexity is amazing. If you like a sweet Cavendish, you fill fall head over heels for this one. Flavor fades over time.

The description is dead on.... flavor is just wonderful.. one of the few aromatics that I look forward to smoking.. being an English/Balkan fan. This tin note tells you that a treat is forthcoming and the blend is well balanced from the very first light to the very bottom of the bowl. If you like Aros.. you must try this.. if you haven't had an aro in a long time.. YOU must try this. Two Thumbs Up across the board. Happy Smoking All Cheers Mike

Extremely Mild Extra Strong Overwhelming Overwhelming

This is horrible stuff. It's not pipe tobacco - someone has found some old dark fruit cakes, crumbled them up, mixed them with oily flavors, then added a dose of lighter fluid for combustion. Put all this in a tin and write 'pipe tobacco' on the... lid. It's absolutely smothered with flavorings and preservatives - sticks to the fingers and won't dry out. Somewhere in the tin there must be some tobacco, but I'm blowed if I can find it amongst all the raisins, currants and orange peel. Smoked one pipeful then threw the rest away. Half a star for the rather nice presentation tin and plastic lid.
