Here is a mild, slow-burning, soft Black Cavendish flavored with smooth, dark caramel. A rich confection for your pipe.

This one may quickly hit my top five aromatics list. I'm a fan of caramel flavoring and this dark Black Cavendish blend is loaded with the stuff! I opened the tin and immediately started salivating. At the match, wowsers, a strong caramel taste (frankly, almost overwhelming), washed over my palate but then settled down and became manageable. And typical of McClelland aromatics, #401 smoked mostly cool and the dottle at the bottom of the bowl was not overly moist. A very nice smoke that I think may become a really good friend!

Very rich and sweet caramel smell in the bag as well as smoking it. If you are looking for an aromatic that tastes as sweet as dark caramel, this is it. I did get a slightly salty taste with it - will have to re-review when I have some more to see if it was just that particular pipe.

I never thought I'd find anything as good as "Sutliff Molto Dolce" but "Bulk No.401 Darkest Caramel" equals it in every way "and you can by in bulk for a third the price".

This doesn't take the place of "Sutliff Molto Dolce" (which is the Rolls Royce of aeromatics) but is a good afforable alternative.

Buy a little of each and you'll not be dissapointed.
