A mellow blend of bright Virginia from three continents with a hint of burley. Flavors of nougat, vanilla and chocolate create a naturally sweet blend with a delicious taste and aroma for the distinct pipe smoker.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Very Mild Pleasant

The bright Virginia is grass and a little citrus. The cavendish has a light honey note. The burley is nutty, slightly earthy, with a drop of molasses. I don’t notice the Maryland at all, which is not unusual as it is generally used to carry flavors of other components. I notice the vanilla and nougat a little more than the light chocolate. I’m not certain where the spice comes from, but it’s more a suggestion rather than anything else. The nic-hit is mild. The toppings are lightly applied, but they do sublimate the tobaccos. More of a shag cut than ribbon, it burns well, cool, clean, smooth with a little creaminess. Requires few relights, and leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl as it burns to ash. The after taste is pleasant, but light. It’s an easy going, gentle all day smoke, and though it could use a little more depth of flavor, it performs nicely enough. Two and a half stars.

This review is based on bulk tobacco and not the 100g tin:

Boy i hate being a spoiler, especially when it comes to a blend with so many positive reviews but i truly didnt like this stuff. I found the flavor profile to be nothing as described by the blender, the leaf seemed sub par and was just riddled with woody stick pieces and unsmokable bark like chunks. After sifting through and amounting a bowlful of smokable leaf i was greeted with a somewhat sour virginia that wasnt the least bit sweet, the heat really started to kick up about 5 puffs in and increased as the bowl burned down. There must be more burley in here than Comoys is letting on as things got quite bitter towards mid bowl and it certainly didnt have the nic kick a virginia blend should have. Room note wasnt bad and there was no ghost left behind afterwards.Id be interested to try this again out of a tin, sometimes i find quality control is better when you dont buy from the bulk bin. All in all i rate it as sub par OTC by north american standards, there are Middleton Blends i find more palatable than this stuff. I cant complain about the price, but i can certainly complain about buying half a pound of this tripe. Ask for a sample with your next order, i wish i had.

As noted by at least one other, Cask #9 in bulk had many bits and pieces of plant other than the tobacco leaf itself. The bulk I purchased was also very, very damp ... which may have been due to the seller and not the producer.

I found the taste quite flat and unvarying -- almost flavorless. And there was a definite note of spice, which contrasted unfavorably with the monotonic tobacco taste.

After I've finished the ounce I purchased to sample this blend, I'll be done with it.

When I first started smoking a pipe in 2011, I tried a few aromatics and didn’t like any of them and found I enjoyed English blends more. But wanting to try something new, I thought I would give it another shot. My first attempt was with Comoy’s Cask #9. The first thing I noticed is that the smell of this is softer and more subtle in the jar. It feels drier and is not sticky to the touch and it doesn’t seem to have any black Cavendish, which I was happy about. I find this to be mild and taste the vanilla right away. What I like about Cask #9 is that it is sweet, but not overly sweet. It isn’t overpowering and I can taste the tobacco. Along with the vanilla, I can taste the nougat too, but the chocolate is very much in the background. I really enjoyed this blend and it’s made me interested in trying others like it.

I've jarred this tobacco hoping that some age would improve its taste. I have been disappointed. I bought a few ounces in Nov of 2015 and try a bowel about every six months. I think I'm done and this will go in the compost. There is not much more I can say. (7/28/2017) Well, I didn't put it in the compost I thought I give it another go. No surprise changes after being jarred for 21 months. I can taste nothing of the casings supposed to be on this blend. It gets the one star from me and I am usually not hard to please.

Comoy’s Cask No. 9 is a lovely aromatic that isn’t overpowered by the casing. I find the vanilla to be the most forward of the flavors with a bit of nuttiness in the background. The chocolate seems to appear more in the second half of the bowl. I prefer Virginias over Burley, so it’s more to my liking. It burns clean, with no goop and the tobacco flavor plays along with the casing rather than be taken over by it. There is no bite that I could detect in the half ounce that I smoked. Sold in bulk, it makes for a nice, well-behaved lite aromatic. If you like Erik Stokkebye’s 4th Generation 1957, (minus the chocolate) you will probably find a home here too as they are of the same ilk.

I have grown a deep appreciation for all of the Comoy cask blends. Great tobaccos at bulk prices.

My personal favorite in the Comoy arsenal is Cask No.2. This blend, Cask No.9 is good, but not as good as No.2

An argument can be made whether this is an aromatic blend, or a Va blend this is lightly topped. I personally would put this in the aromatic category. The first thing to notice about this blend is the wonderful tin note and the perfect moisture level. The cut is a very fine and fluffy ribbon. I would even venture to say it could be considered a shag cut. this makes the blend very easy to fill a pipe and light. The cut does lend it to burn fast so pack the pipe a little more than usual and focus on slow smoking. The flavors are nice but not exciting.

I would not hesitate to recommend any of the Comoy tobaccos. Definitely give it a try.

Comoy's of London - Cask #9 Spiced Virginia (Comoy's).

The tobacco's practically a shag, quite dark, with a sweet, aromatic, aroma; albeit, a mild aroma, not heavy.

The smoke, to me, seems to be more of a Virginia, Cavendish, aromatic one. I find the Burley very lightly included. The toppings aren't at all heavy, the vanilla's the stronger of the bunch, but still nowhere near being 'sticky'. The chocolate and nougat sit much further back, lending the smoke just a touch of character. The burn's good in the fact it doesn't require much attention, but a bad point can be the speed.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

I rate #9 with two stars, not higher, solely because although it's not a bad smoke it's boring:

Somewhat recommended.

Cask No.9 is a fairly easygoing smoke, the bright Virginias are sweet and grassy with a slight tartness, cigarette-like. The Cavendish is earthy and creamy vanilla. The nougat flavors are coconut forward and the cask spice is woody with a nutmeg hint, cocoa flavors are subdued. Pack firmly to avoid harshness. Somewhat bitter, burns clean to ash and leaves very little moisture behind.

The stuff has little to no aromatic quality. Smells and tastes like a cigar to me. Smells bad burning and room note is cigar. Also bites like hell I smoked it too fast once and it blistered my lip. Overall not really a fan and not one I'd buy again.
