Where to Buy


Mild, golden Virginias, that have a naturally high sweetness, are mixed with a mild Black Cavendish. A fresh flavor of exotic fruits and a touch of Bourbon Vanilla is added to make this an extraordinarily mild blend.

Notes: Very mild with a pleasant room note. Another "Go To" Dan Aromatic that meets all expectations set forth in its description.

The smell is great when you open the pouch or tin, and the people around you love it when you smoke it. Of course, that's not a reason to buy this, so here's your reason to consider it: it's a strong aromatic with a multiplicity of flavors in it. The grassy, citrus sweet Virginias are of high quality and form the base of the blend. The toppings have a nice fruitiness, and the bourbon taste is not overwhelming. The vanilla topping has some depth, though it's mildly applied, and works well with the vanilla from the sugary black cavendish. The coconut topping is mild, but always noticeable. The topping do sublimate the tobaccos a bit, but you will still observe them in the background. The nic-hit is mild. Burns at a moderate pace with a cool, clean, creamy sweet consistent flavor. Has no harsh spots or weakening of taste. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, but no dottle. Needs an average number of relights. Has a very pleasant and lingering after taste and room note. Not quite an all day smoke, but one that may bear repeating during the day. A different twist in the aro genre.

Ya can't go wrong with Dan Tobacco. This isn't just a review of Blue Note but all their blends in general. I am primarily a non aromatic smoker as I love the natural taste of tobacco but every now and then everyone needs a change of pace. This is where Blue Note, Black Velvet and DaVinci come in. They give an excellent flavor where the tin aroma actually translates to taste. So far in my 4 year search Dan produces some of the finest Aromatics(along with Sillem's Back...both German.) they also have some delicious English blends. So if you're an English kinda guy lookin for a good aromatic. Ya can't go wrong with Dan Tonacco. Every blend I've tried thus far is a hands down 4 stars!

Oh my...what an aromatic, and that's aromatic with a capital A. This is the sweetest blend I have ever tried and certainly one of the most unique. It is not goopy or gunky, just plain sweet. I smoked a whole tin in just three days because it was so different.

Having said the above, I will never purchase this blend again. Once was enough. I personally enjoy pipe tobacco that tastes like tobacco. Blue Note is cotton candy disguised as tobacco.

Aromatic fans, listen up. This will be your creme' de la creme'! Don't let Sherlock taste it though, he'd turn over in his grave!

I bought a tin of this due to all the favorable reviews. I don't know what other people were smoking, but it couldn't have been this Blue Note.

This tobacco has zero tobacco taste or smell. It burns hot. There is a vague smell and taste of fruity boiled sweets, but otherwise this thing is so mild it's like smoking fresh air with a slight fruity taste.

By all means try this 'tobacco' (I hesitate to call it that because apart from looking at it in the tin, there's no actual smell or taste of tobacco), but why not save some money and just buy a tin of boiled sweets and suck fresh air through your pipe - you'll get the same result and save a lot of money.

Well, I've never considered myself a connoisseur of tobaccos, just a smoker who enjoys rich aromatics. I love Sutliff's Molto Dolce and Lane's Black Raspberry in particular. I'm a solid Cavendish lover with no particular liking for Virginias and a dislike of most burleys--except the ones I grow myself. I bought several tins in a combination "try them" sale and absolutely loved this one. Usually I stay away from anything that indicates it has a citrus content because they always smoke hot for me, but not this one. The taste is enticing and almost as pleasant as the smell, which is divine. I can't really say why I love this blend, just that I do. It's different from all the others and kept drawing me to it until I hit the bottom of the tin. Must have more. It's habit forming in the best way I know. Hot smoking? No, not at all. Burns well and leaves a clean ash with no wetness.

My favorite aromatic blend. It has a faint but noticeable tobacco flavor instead of the "dry air" most people experience with aromatics. The room note is AMAZING. Vanilla, coconut, custard, bourbon whisky. This is a great aromatic that every pipe smoker should try at least once. A great example of what an aromatic can be.

Well if you were looking for the perfect Aro YOU WILL BE THRILLED!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not a big Aro smoker for different reasons,that being said Blue Note is a fantastic aromatic. The tin aroma is so sweet/alcohol like reminds me of Mogan David wine, The interesting thing is the flavor holds through the entire bowl. It has a good tobacco flavor and sweetness at the bottom of the bowl,It smokes dry for entire bowl but the ash is dark I smoked two bowls in the same pipe (Ascorti 3/4 bent) to see if there is any ghosting going on. Going to fill it with McCLELLAND #5110 Dark English Full and see how it does be back...................shortly!.........Back and //wow except for moisture in the heel (3- bowls in a row gave no time to dry out.... one of the best Aro's I've ever smoked holds it's flavor well and when that diminishes your left with a good tobacco flavor. The moisture content is low and it tasted wonderful. I've smoked a lot of Aro"s in my like and the thing that is amazing VS. American Aro's is how fast they lose there flavor and how wet they get at the bottom. Blue Note leaves a dry heel and a flavor that holds thru 3/4 of the bowl and then the good tobacco flavor comes through. An amazing trip, I've been let down by the American style that so I was nervous to try this . So I waited 6 yrs to pop the top, I wish I had done it sooner! If all Aro's smoked like this I would be mostly an Aro smoker. Imagine here in America the blend in the jar tasting just like it smells thru most of the bowl and at the end, a clean dry pipe! Wow wouldn't that be nice, well here you get that quality smoke! If only all tobaccos were of this of this quality, this is very a rare blend, fantastic! I hope you pick up a tin and see for yourself. Pick some up and fire up a bowl and enjoy the journey!

While this blend only has Virginia listed without any Burley it is a surprisingly smooth non-irritating mild but flavorful smoke. And that just about covers it. Blue Note smells wonderful in the pouch (I purchased it from bulk)and as you smoke it. The tobacco taste is very muted so I can see why some would shun this. However it is there in a nice pleasant way coated in a mild but rich sweet but hard to identify flavoring. I experience no tongue bite with this aromatic tobacco. It's a very nice, mild, unobtrusive and friendly tobacco that is nice to gently puff away on while driving. Recommended.

Found a tin of this lying forlornly on a back shelf in a tobacconist in Johannesburg and it being a total unknown snapped it up. And a good snap it was...for an aromatic. The tin smell is probably the best I ever smelled: chocolaty sweet, caramel, fudge, almost an ice cream smell. The initial taste is not far from the tin aroma, which is quite nice for an aromatic. A rich sweetness, not a candy sweetness. Again chocolate and almost a cappuccino taste dominates. Unfortunately like most aromatics, the taste wanes towards the second half of the bowl, but never turns rank or sour. Room note is such that my wife chided me from the kitchen for not making her a cup of hot chocolate as well! :-) Overall I'm not such an aromatic fan anymore, but for an early morning light smoke with my morning coffee this is not bad at all. 3 stars.

Try as I might, I just can’t find a happy medium with this blend. I dried it, smoked it right from the tin, tried different sized bowls, packed it both loose and firm and took my time with each bowl. Careful or carefree, the results were the same. Blue Note just doesn’t have enough flavor for me. From charring light to the bottom of the bowl, any amount of flavor was fleeting at best. At a gentle sip, I found subtle hints of coconut, fruit & vanilla with a flash of booze, but these flavors came across as minuscule blips hidden within vast amounts of sweet smelling, vapid smoke. Dan Tobacco describes Blue Note as an “extraordinarily mild blend.” Without a doubt, a most spot-on & honest description. Anyway, Blue Note does create an excellent room-note. I just wish there was more to taste.

Fantastically good room note, a tobacco to impress/please others with. Splendid tin aroma, hard to keep lit, even after 15 minutes of drying. What I got from it was what I've found in many of the Pipeworks & Wilke blends, a very rich but subtle tobacco flavor in the low end of the registry with a light fruity casing furnishing the top note. The bourbon spike comes and goes in an interesting way, providing a bit of heat to the citrus and vanilla flavors. Did indeed locate something akin to coconut from time to time. I wanted to like it more than I did, but as has been said, it's quite good and one I hope everyone interested in aromatics would try and enjoy.

I'm very disappointed in this blend. I hear so many great things about it, but I get very little taste or smell out of it. The tin smell adds insult to injury - as it smells like the best tobacco ever. Unfortunately, in the pipe it does not deliver. It tastes like a weak aromatic, but doesn't smell like anything but smoke.

Popped this tin a week ago and after 5 or so bowls I've made up my mind that it's good but I can't dig it like some other aros. The tin note is a fruit explosion... almost a bubblegum aroma. Not a bad thing I guess. If you're into that then rock n roll (reminds me of the first whiff when busting open a box of Fruit Loops and jamming my head in the bag - I'm ok with admitting that I do that). Smoking this is nice... fruity... sometimes someone sprinkles a little pepper on my fruit. The reason for two stars is I thought this blend was pretty high maintenance. Packed too tight and it burns hotter than the blazes of hell and damnation itself (stole that line from Back to the Future III) and bites like crazy. Packed too loose and I have to puff like a hypoxic maniac to keep it lit. Tried this in three different sized bowls but can't get this one right yet although I really want to. Every once in a while I get a nice taste but then it goes away and I'm fussing like a first time parent that brought their newborn to a fancy restaurant (been there, done that, got a t-shirt). Gets a bit more care-free after the first half of the bowl. I'm not ready to give up on this blend yet... it does taste great. Until I figure Blue Note out, I'll stick to only two stars and one tin for now.

I have to admit I'm not an aromatic smoker though I have tried many over the years. I smoke primarily Virginia, Burley, or Virginia-Burley blends and occasionally, a Balkan or English. Having said that, I find this tobacco exceptional as an aromatic. It's primarily a broken flake with a Virginia base. There is some ribbon and some wider pieces. The taste is tobacco and the room note piquent and sweet, though not "in your face" as some aromatics are. The fruitiness is not pronounced nor is the bourbon vanilla but both are there. If you're an aromatic smoker or even if not, you should try this. Recommended.

This product is marketed as having "...exotic fruits and a touch of Bourbon Vanilla... extraordinarily mild..." The casing is very tasty but I wouldn't have been able to identify it. And no way is this mild. This is actually a full-on aromatic with a good nico kick and an underlying robust Virginia tobacco flavor. It's better than the company's marketing department describes it to be.

Blue Note delivers a full load of [what we are told is] exotic fruit/bourbon vanilla flavor in every puff, down to about the last 20% of the bowl. The bottom 20% of the bowl is best discarded, as the flavor profile takes a major downturn towards the bitter and sour as the ash and goo start to pile up; it starts burning too hot; and moderate puffing begins to deliver a bit of gurgling and tongue bite. If you fail to discard the last 20% or so of the bowl, it will have a seriously negative effect on your mouth and pipe, and ruin the enjoyment of the second bowl, should you wish to have a second bowl. Of course, this can be avoided with some drying time, tho it tastes and smells much better when moist.

It burned best when packed tight in a narrow/deep bowl. If you don't pack it quite tight, you won't be able to keep it lit. The tin aroma is very powerful. The flavors aren't separate and distinct, but they come together well. I can handle about 3 bowls of this delicious candy a week. For the experienced aromatic smoker who also appreciates top quality Virginia tobacco. Requires a dedicated pipe, obviously.

With all the hype surrounding this tobacco, I had to give it a shot. Upon opening, I found it to have a wonderful aromatic smell. The tobacco itself was as dry as the sahara desert and burned even hotter. No flavor at all, just scorching hot air. As far as the incredible room note it is supposed to have, I could not smell anything. Dry, tasteless, tongue biting, no thank you. If you like smoking vanilla scented candles, you will love this tobacco. If you want something with a little substance, go pick up some Frog Morton instead.

For several years I have been smoking the "english" style blends but was craving a change about a year ago.So upon the recommendation of a local tobacconist ( a cigar shop really) I opted to buy a tin of blue note. When I got home and opened the tin I was shocked at the intensity of the aroma from this tobacco. It smells wonderful in the tin ,sweet and fruity with vanilla undertones, I couldn't wait to try it, to taste something that smelled like a candy shop. I remember pulling a bowl full from the tin and the tobacco being a bit tacky and wet to the touch. Once packed into the bowl however, I had a real fight on my hands. For the life of me I could not keep the stuff lit, It smoked incredibly hot, gurgled , sputtered and bit the bejesus out of my tongue. I managed to get through the bowl, which ended up a nice white fluff of ash, and thinking I was done with my evening smoke went about the rest of my evening boy was i wrong. This is a smoke that will stay with you very much like a cigar in that respect. The ashy aftertaste and ghost left in the pipe will remind you for quite some time that you have just finished a bowl of Blue note.

Needless to say that was the first and last bowl of blue note for me until today. with a bit over year of age on the tobac it still has the same wonderful aroma. it has dried a bit and is no longer tacky to the touch as i remember it being. Age seems to do this blend well and it is burning quite nice. very little bite this go round but I admit I have slowed my smoking down tremendously over the last year. I still find the aftertaste to be just to much for me which is why i never took to cigars. It has a lovely room note that my wife almost seems to enjoy.

2 out of 5 for this one. I still like to pull this one out of the cellar and bury my nose in it every once in a while but overall this is still not the smoke for me but Im OK with that.

The aroma from the pouch (I bought mine from a tobacconist's jar) is delicious-- a strong sweet fruity aroma. I would like to try this out of a tin when I get the chance. This burned extremely well--a charring light and then one more light--it burned slowly and evenly right to the bottom. I enjoyed the taste--lot's of citrus and a little sweet, but not too sweet. The citrus flavor definitely dominates, but the Virginias and the Black Cavendish come through as well. The Bourbon flavor comes through too (I would have appreciated even a little more of this). It's not very complex, however; the taste stayed pretty much the same throughout the bowl. It's just a good quality smoking experience, very relaxing, and the room note is quite nice. One of the few aromatic tobaccos I can actually smell in the air while smoking it. It bites the tongue a wee bit during smoking, especially if pushed (and it burns so well it doesn't need to be pushed!), but this doesn't last long after completion of the bowl. One could drink soda after this without any discomfort. Overall, I find this a tasty and enjoyable good quality tobacco. 3.5 stars.

This aromatic is an ode to subtlety, beginners who prefer really sweet blends will have a hard time in order to appreciate the true character from this blend, it has a very complex and limited palette of flavours that require certain expertise and disposition to get. It is very "jazzy", that is subtle.

I read somewhere that "Blue note" was made as a tribute to the famous jazz club in New York, the person said that it was mainly a sensuous re-enactment from the place, the general jazzy atmosphere, the odour and sensation from the leather furniture, the warmness and the coolness altogether, the blue note... I think i can imagine all this while i smoked this blend, it does have all those nuances and its intriguing.

It all starts as a timid note flat and constant of virginia and as it gains intensity the musicality from this smoke tunes in. An aroma of leather and soft bourbon takes in, the band is now developing the jam, tobacco dominates above the aromatic and it just varies the intensity from virginia, moderated by the bass lines from the cavendish. At times a little vanilla note jumps in very vaguely adorning the trumpet lines from the domminating virginia, sips from bourbon as you sit and contemplate. The band is in full digression till the mid of the pipe, jamming hard, drums kick in, wildness in the air. Intensity is moderate.

The last quarter is where there is more aromatic approach, a lot more into smoothness, clarinet submerges you into volutes of blue smoke and the atmosphere in your palate receives all the most intensity from vanilla and bourbon, a little citric which remits to general coolness, a little sweetness wall of flavour and virginia strength. You get in, youre seduced by the rhythm, it is endulging and appetizing, it maintains this cadence until it finishes.

Very interesting smoke. Truly complex and mysterious. The flavour is certainly undetermined even though you can detect the components, but the trick is to find the "atmosphere" it creates, the whole blend flavour which sums up the "blue note". Recommended.

Dear god, my teeth hurt from the smell of sugar. If blindfolded you would have a hard time identifying which was the bowl of Fruity Pebbles. For how sweet it is, you would expect it to be simply dripping with syrup topping, but it is oddly not too gummy to the touch.

Once lit, everything begins to calm down, though there isn't much subtly to the flavor, just pure uncut white crystal sugar. It is a dessert smoke in the purest sense, as hours afterwards your saliva will remain sweet. Others in the room will love it, since it doubles as an amazing air odorizer.

On my quest for the best vanilla aromatic, this one did not hit the mark, there Sweet Vanilla Honeydew did a much better job (and to this day is my favorite vanilla).

Quality Virginias. Nice chunks of pressed flake. An "adult" aromatic I'd buy again. Not goopy but very sweet. Interesting fruity/vanilla casing. Great room note and nice smooth taste. The one draw back I encountered is that between the natural sugar in the Virginias, and the sugar in the casing, I had to nurse the bowls to avoid tongue bite or sting. As time went on and the casings weakened a bit from airing out, sting wasn't as much of a consideration. I bought this tin in September of 2014, then cracked it and started smoking in February of 2015. Here it is a year later and I have probably four or five bowls left. As you can conclude, I didn't smoke this blend very frequently which isn't to say I don't really enjoy it. I usually smoke English blend and enjoy aromatics now and then. Well worth trying.

The tin note of this baccy is simply outstanding; I just wish it translated a bit more in the taste department. It gave off gobs of aroma, just like Da Vinci, a very pleasant aroma at that (sure to be a crowd pleaser). There are a few downers, it burned hot, especially towards the bottom, and, because of this, it smoked really wet for me and left a horrid backwash. Still, the front end of the smoking experience was relatively pleasant. This is a true aromatic, let there be no doubt. I'm sure an aromatic smoker will find this blend delivers, however, for a piper such as me, maybe not so much.

I'll give this a grudging three stars. Aromatic smokers will likely enjoy this one.

Well - here is one i have been meaning to try for a long time. As a fan of the output from the record label of the same name, and someone that appreciates a good aromatic, what better pairing could there be? So, cue the melodic and soothing sounds of the Herbie Hancock quintet, and nearly 50 years after he set forth, I took my own Maiden Voyage with this highly recommended blend from Dan Tobacco, my first from their stable.

And it started so well. The pouch note was not at all overwhelming or too reminiscent of a chemists laboratory, and a single charring got things going in a very relaxing way. As we set forth, I had recollections of the half penny tray at the local sweet shop and the micro packets of refreshers that it used to be possible to buy in the UK. Moving along, and as Herbie and crew set forth into The Eye Of The Hurricane, I was navigating a more sedate course, although reviewing what was coming out of my funnel, I was at risk of soon entering a fog bank. As I pulled back, I took a look at the packaging and tried to work out why Dan decided to package 50g of tobacco in what looks like a 100g tin, certainly, it is not a Little One like the tin they use for their devils holiday tobacco. Any, it is at this point in the bowl where a tobaccos true colors start to show and it becomes a case of Survival Of The Fittest. Blue Note came through for me and as herbie played out, the Dolphins were indeed Dancing!!
