Russ' Monthly Blend - Cinnamon Roll features cinnamon and vanilla notes over a blend of Virginia, burley and black cavendish. The combination of flavors helps to avoid the "hot" cinnamon flavor; it has a flavor more like its namesake.

This is a nice blend. Smokes smooth to the end. There's an overall presence of sweetness with varying tones that keeps this blend interesting. The cinnamon hints come through periodically, but not regularly which only adds to the interest. A nice aromatic blend if you're looking for a change of pace. I found it went great with a good cup of coffee. Probably not in my regular rotation or on my short list of aromatics, but I wouldn't be disappointed if I had it again. The tobacco never seemed to clearly pull through, but I can't say it was heavily cased either. If you are looking for a decent smooth smoke with a hint of cinnamon, this is worth a shot.

This has become my go to morning coffee smoke. Lately continuing through my morning commute. I find the sweet cinnamon scent carries into the flavor of the smoke very well without being cloying. I've a cob dedicated to this blend, and find the cinnamon infuses the pipe itself, making for a nice symbiotic relationship between this blend and the subtle sweetness of a cob pipe. Makes a nice dessert tobacco as well. Tobacco flavors are there, but in the back round. Perhaps too sweet for an all day puff, but a tasty start to the day and a change of pace from more savory tobaccos. Enjoy!

Buttery and nutty, this is an easy-smoking, smooth aromatic with little bite. I don't really get any cinnamon notes (which might be a good thing.) Overall, a decent aromatic but I probably won't be getting any more, because it just lacks some of the flavor I crave from my other go-to aromatics (Dan's Blue Note, Lane 1Q, HG-2000.)

A crisp and cold, but sunny, January morning. Sitting on the front porch smoking a bowl of Cinnamon Roll while drinking a nice hot cup of coffee. Pure delight.

Russ's Blends are some of the best aromatics available and Cinnamon Roll is no exception. The sweet and cinnamon flavors are there throughout.

The first time I smoked this I did not like it, so I put it away for a month. This time I tried it in a new meerschaum, what a difference! The cinnamon was prevalent in the taste, but not over bearing. The tobacco was just a little stronger than most aromatics. Although my wife cannot detect the cinnamon roll room note, she does find it pleasant and I noticed it tend to linger longer that many of the others that I smoke.
