I like this smoke. I like the sweet plum taste that stays throughout the bowl. The virginias balance and compliment the cavendish well. The stuff is a bit sticky but let it dry for about 30 minutes before smoking and it will do well. This is my evening smoke. It is a bit too sweet for me to smoke all day, but great after dinner or a single bowl in the evening.

I gave this blend a try and the first bowl was not great, but once i lit it up in a bigger pipe and smoked it very cool it all started. there is a very slight plum with a lingering sweetness that fades in and out. i am giving it 3 stars, because it is a decent aromatic that has not been drowned in flavorings. this is how aromatics should be made. i enjoyed it and might even cellar a tin for a couple years. would recommend for people that liked Plumcake.

I'm smoking this pipe tobacco for the first time as I write this review. I have to say it starts very sweet very the light flavor. While the bowl keeps burning you can feel the virginias and the cavendish doing the work but the plum flavor stays in the aftertaste and the room note… It is a pleasant smoke from start to end, cool burning, and recommended for medium to small bowl pipes, if you want to get the most flavor.

Mild Medium Mild Very Pleasant

Very pleasant blend from Solani; possibly a soul sister to their Sweet Mystery blend (another well-kept secret success of Solani). A classic mild continental aromatic, with Virginia and Black Cavendish playing the melody and Burley providing the bass lines. As usual with Solani blends, the tin aroma is promising while not overwhelming. The tobacco, while almost too moist for immediate use, lit up obediently nevertheless with only one relight. Mild smoke with plum, blackcurrant and vanilla overtones. None overpowering, all well-balanced. Burned well till the end. A clear winner against MacBaren "Plumcake" on absence of bite and against Dunhill "Royal Yacht" on price. In summary, almost an ideal mild aromatic with dry fruit overtones, with the possible single comment that it benefits from a short amount of air drying before packing the pipe. This prevents a 'gurgling' embarrassment in front of the otherwise impressed one's other half, who said "now this is a tobacco that I do not mind". Luckily, I am of the same opinion and even more so.

Solani Festival . The initial sight of the mix is amazing , you have a good selection of the different Tobaccos included right from the jet black Cavendish to the lighter Virginia's and Burley's , all in quite big pieces . It doesn't give off much aroma unlit apart from a very basic Virginia one . The moisture level is superb , making for easy lighting up with a great even burn . The flavour of the smoke is very soft and not at all harsh , with a lovely hay note from the Virginia complemented by a superb sweetness from the black Cavendish . It is not saturated in falseness , you only get a hint of the Plums , but the small amount acts beneficially to this blend as you don't get a great wallop of fruity falseness ! I feel this would be a great evening Smoke for those who favour less aggressive Aromatics or for those who are trying Aromatics for the first time .
