This mild, smooth blend of Burley, Virginia and Cavendish tobaccos is flavored with dark rum, pecan and cocoa. It brings a warm glow to the coldest winter day. The aroma of a favorite holiday confection wafts from the bowl bringing pipe smoking contentment. Happy Holidays!

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

A fantastic aromatic with a tin note that turns heads in the room: "Mmm, what is that?" says Mrs Perique. Similarly, room note gets rave reviews.

I've been smoking bits of this over the past few years and wish I could get my hands on some more. A mild blend, yes, but for an aromatic there's enough true tobacco taste that you know you're smoking pipe tobacco and not PG soaked goop. This is a very high quality aromatic with subtle sweet flavors that develop and interplay as the bowl progresses. While not a strong blend, it's got enough heft to make for a cold winter evening's smoke. The topping certainly evokes Christmas flavors, with the tin note translating nicely into the flavor of the smoke. The rum here is sweet, not harsh.

Burns evenly without the fast, hot burn of many aromatics - and no goop.

Overall a first rate aromatic and outstanding holiday blend. Top of its class.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

The Virginia is slightly grassy, and there's a minor nuttiness from the burley. The black cavendish adds a very mild vanilla note and there's a touch of honey from the gold cavendish. The toppings are not strong, and the rum loses a little of its impact after the half way point. The pecan is more noticeable then, being a little less obvious in the first half of the smoke. The cocoa notes are also very mild. The tobaccos and toppings complimentary meld fairly well together, and as pleasant as it is to smoke - no dottle, silky smooth with no harshness - it lacks depth of flavor to be any more than a work about all day mixture. If you like mild aromatics, this may suit you, but if you want a deeper tasting one, it may not satisfy you. Two and a half stars.

Apparently, this blend is the same every year, so my reviews for the other versions are the same as this one. I can't tell any differences.
