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!

This is a very nice Aromatic Tobacco that is sure to please lovers of BCA, Molto Dolce, Caramel Rush and VBC.

Cool smoking, lots of Caramel flavor - not overly sweet but done just right.

Like Msr. Pipestud this tobacco moves to the top of my Aro list. Definitely worth trying.

There's a very slight vanilla note from the black cavendish. The rest of what you will taste is a very rich and creamy caramel. Burns fairly well, though slightly moist, and cool with no bite. The flavor never weakens, leaves a very pleasant after taste, and the room note will make you a lot of friends. An under rated aromatic.

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".

============================

Correction.

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.
