Many people think the opulently decorated Alexander Bridge to be the most beautiful in Paris. Much like the Alexander Bridge, this marvelous Aromatic Blend has key elements painstakingly brought together to create something aesthetically pleasing. Red and Gold Virginias mix with Rich Burleys to mingle in harmony.

Mild Mild Mild Pleasant

A mild and tasty mix of red and gold Virginias with some burley. The burley adds a very slight nutty note, and the gold Virginia chips in with a very light lemon hit with a touch of cavendish. There's a lightly added topping that reminds me of red wine, along with a light apricot and honey essence that hints of sweet bread flavor. The flavors expertly meld to create a well balanced semi-sweet all day smoke with no bite, no goop, and an even burn rate.

Sutliff Private Stock ALEXANDER BRIDGE

An Aromatic Blend of Red and Gold Virginian with Rich Burley Tobaccos

Tin Notes: Nice Ribbon Cut Tobacco with good leaf colors Slightly moist and sticky with a top note of Vanilla/alcohol not overly moist but may require a little pre-drying time

The Burn: This is a light/mild smoking mixture with a good sweet taste. The tobacco burned good from start to finish. If smoked slowly - this is an enjoyable tobacco blend. Top notes of Vanilla and Liqueur to start with good tobacco flavors as you get further into the bowl

Recommended for those who seek a mild flavored mixture

Room Note is Good !

Good base tobaccos, well blended. Mild topping flavor of vanilla/rum lingers through the bowl. Virginias come through, particularly on the retrohale. Lit well, burned clean. 3-.

This was an enjoyable smoke. I smoked it straight out of the tin with no drying or special prep. The tin note is slightly heavy and sweet - maybe caramel. Smoked it is a VaBur with a mild fruit topping with hints of hazelnut every now and then. Burn was good and the flavor was consistent.

This did not knock my socks off, but it is a solid, lightly topped VaBur blend. It is easy to recommend.

Mild Mild Mild Very Pleasant

Great after dinner or down time smoke. Caramel/cocoa taste, mabye a hint of red wine. Fantastic room note. A true smoker's delight (and you can smoke like a snob at a very cheap price with this one). A new addition to my rotation from now on. Thank you AB for taking me out of the daily rut and making me feel cultured and worldly. Both aroes and non-aroes will love this blend. Best of all, it's smooth with no bite. Enjoy!

Very Mild Medium Mild to Medium Tolerable

Rotten fruit, low grade tobacco, propylene glycol and plenty of gurgling: If that is what you like, then enjoy! I tend to avoid tobaccos that leave a goop in the bottom of the bowl and even create moisture on the rim of the bowl. I tried seven different bowls of the this stuff in a few different pipes. I waited weeks between smoking it. This stuff is outright garbage. If you try it and think it is good, then you really need to spend a couple of extra dollars and get a tin of quality tobacco from the hundreds of other blenders and marketers out there. Sutliff advertises like mad. You know a lot of their budget must go to that. At the same time, they charge almost as much as a much better quality tin. If all tobacco tasted and smoked like this, I would never smoke again. Garbage! Aweful, sickly-tasting sewage, rotten fruit and garbage tobacco marry together to leave the most unpleasant taste in the mouth this side of a swisher sweet or other drug store quality tobacco product. There is stuff that is actually less expensive and much better from Peter Stokkebye, Lane, the bulk jar at your local brick and mortar etc....... OMG!

Good tin note, good room note. Easy to pack, nice initial light, easy to stay lit. Flavor is OKAY (for me, YMMV), but not great. I have to be careful, crosses over into the hot zone easy, and then some bite... But, nothing out of the ordinary for most aromatics. In short - good, but not enough to recommend itself over some of my favorites.

Got a free can in the mail. It tastes great, the only problem I have with it is that it's so lite I smoke it to fast and get bit. I did have some McClelland Darkest Chocolate that I found would not burn without a fight, I mixed it one to one with Alexander Bridge. Turned out to be a great mix. Think I'll keep some on hand.

I went to my local tobacco shop to buy a tin of Mac Barens Seven Seas Gold. Unfortunately, it was not available. The Tobacconist reccomended a tin of Sutliffe Alexander Bridge. I decided to give it a try. Overall, I was "Impressed". The tobacco is a Blended-Aromatic mix of Red and Gold Viginias/Cavendish. The texture of this tobacco is dry. Lighting it was easy and it stayed lit for the duaration of the smoke. After a couple of Puffs, It quickly delivered a distinct smooth/sweet taste from the Red Virginias. The flavor notes of this tobacco are of Hazzelnut, Appricot, and Molasses. My satisfaction stayed consistent from the begining of the bowl, to the end. a good outdoor smoke on nights when the weather is warm.
