Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

Yes, it has a undistinguishable fruitiness about it which one would expect from a pear flavored tobacco. I do like it, sometimes it gets a bit bitter about half way into it which is a put off for me and smokes rather hot. It would be better suited for someone who normally doesn't like aromatics I believe.

Pipe Used: several

Age When Smoked: fresh and aged for a year

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

Well, it's obviously not for everyone, but I like it. The pear taste comes through a little better if you let some of the broken flake in the mix stay as-is. No rubbing. I def. taste the pear in the baccy and I likey...just had another chunk sent my way.

Only if you like this type of thing.

Extremely Mild Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant

A flat, hot-smoking aromatic. It's alleged to taste like pear, but I can't really see it. Pear is a mild flavor even when you EAT a pear, so it's hard to fathom that a tobacco could impart any kind of pear flavor. Even the bag note betrays the description. It's pretty much your standard aromatic underneath the hood -- at least the tobaccos in it are of good quality. Still, you can do better.
