Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant

Got this 1.5oz pouch as a complimentary extra with an order of tobacco from pipesandcigars.com. Pouch smells like vanilla granola with raisins and dried figs. Hardly a trace of the expected “cheap aromatic” chemical note. Really pretty pleasant. Cased to the point of hiding any hint of the tobaccos used. But the vanilla aroma is pleasant enough.

Once lit this stuff really is light. Vanilla is not overpowering, Tobaccos come through in quiet tones of Burley and Virginia (maybe?). Sweet, dessert-like, baked cookies, sweet grass, even slight cinnamon notes. Sweetness increases as the bowl burns down. Near the bottom of the bowl, develops a sort of stale ashtray taste which makes it hard to smoke it all the way to the heel.

Better than your run-of-the-mill drugstore blend. But generally, too mild, too weak, too boring. It's obvious this is lower grade leaf like most bargain aromatics, but the casings are pleasant and don't taste quite as chemical-like as most bargain blends.

Super Value - Ultra.

I often like to see what quality so called budget blends can give. A few of my 'value for money' endeavours transpired to be not bad, but my last attempt at researching into value went down like the Nagasaki bomb: Super Value Whiskey Cavendish. Disgusting. But Ultra isn't as bad, although it wouldn't be a desert island smoke it aint the worst I've had!

It's presented as a medium brown ribbon that's a little on the coarse side. The pouch-note's one of sweet additions and the moisture's good.

On the low side it can be quite tricky to get lit, even though it's not soaking. But once the burn's been established the smoke has quite a nice flavour. The tobacco flavour's driven by the Burley, with a finishing touch of sweet hay coming from the Virginia Cavendish. The topping doesn't seem like just vanilla, there's an extra flavour reminiscent of candy floss or marshmallow. The burn can creep a bit too high in temperature, it needs quite a bit of maintenance from the flame and tamper, and can also be a biter.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Although the flavour isn't offensive I'll rate it with just two stars: it's like one of many sweet aromatics, the quality of burn reduces the score, and the tongue bite can be quite perturbing. Somewhat recommended:

Two stars.

If you like Lane BLWB try this. The flavor is not exactly the same but it is very good. This makes a great stand alone smoke or as a blender to tone down something that is too hot or strong. It is mainly burley and smokes as such. If you think cause it comes in a bag it isn't any good be ready to change your mind. This is not goopy and does not have to air dry for days to smoke. I keep this one on hand as it gives a longer burn than the Lane BLWB does. The flavor and aroma are every bit as good. I've tried several Super Value blends and have liked all but one. If you need to watch dollars then consider this tobacco. I like it and keep it on hand to smoke especially in the summer when something cool and mellow is appreciated.
