Gauntleys-Deliverance. When I open the pouch I see a very dark mixture. I'm happy that it appears to have the right content of moisture in it as well, I detest wet blends! The smell from the pouch is rich indeed, it's a little different to the usual blends as I can't quantify if it's aromatic or not! Slightly aro', slightly smoky with a decent Virginia note. The smoke does qualify as a little more aromatic though. It isn't too strong at all with added tastes but I find them easy to pick out. The vanilla is of a good weight, giving the smoke a great creaminess. The chocolate is also perfect in the mix, I actually find it gets easier to discern the longer the pipe burns.

Of all the included tobaccos I find that it's the smokiness from the Latakia that steals the show. It works perfectly alongside the vanilla, this sort of calms the flavour and stops it becoming too harsh.

I find this to have a good nicotine quantity. Being medium so it would probably suit most smokers.

Although the added flavour is easy to identify it doesn't bite me, I often find aromatics can be a bit nippy! The smoke is fairly cool too so it oozes relaxation!

I find this a good tobacco, worthy of three stars.

Stand and deliver is more like it! It's a bit of smokey chocolate with a hint of English sensibility. Naughty but nice. Tasty, but at the same time quite refined. The Latakia comes through just in time to stop the mouth watering too much with the sweetness. A triumph of British mixing. These chaps have really used the best combinations to make this round and terrifically loveable blend. Goes well with a robust red wine or a sweet coffee. Enjoy, but let it get some air before you light it. Bit damp out of the pouch. That said, I defy anyone to not want to stuff and light as soon as they have smelled it!

A lovely smoking experience. Tried after the reviews of others and I am delighted. No more Three Nuns for me! Great to have this made in England too.

Smells great in the pouch, and has an excellent room note. From the description, it sounds like this is a lot more of an aromatic than it is, with vanilla and latakia fighting it out. However, once lit I didn't find it to be much of an aro at all, but still a masterful blend. The lat steps back and the casing blends very well into the mix to produce a relaxing and flavourful smoke which is as smooth as silk. It's quite Nic-lite, but is nice change of pace from a hefty flake or English blend. Great stuff for an evening unwind.
