A mild topping of Irish whisky is the star flavor, though you can get a little taste of the Virginia and sweet burley with a light bread note. It’s a short ribbon cut that burns well, even and cooly with a consistent creamy smoothness, and no sour notes. An all day smoke that doesn’t overwhelm and has a pleasant room note.

The tin pops, and a lovely forest of Virginias and Burleys are awaiting you. An invisible mist of Irish Wiskey Cream mixed with the earthiness of the Burleys are the tin note. It's surprisingly dry for an aromatic. Not very sticky at all. This tobacco pack very easily with little to no drying time.

Not difficult to get this tobacco lit, nor to maintain the ember. Room note is pleasant as it is somewhat reminscent of grandpa or that pipesmoker who lived down the block when you were a child.

The first half of the bowl is a very smooth and creamy smoke. Very enjoyable for post-meal/dessert bowls. The Burleys acts as support for the sweetness of the VAs and the creamy whiskey.

But after the first half the Burleys present themselves as the main players and stay there. Now, I am a Burley fan. I love my blends with a nice earthy, nutty burley flavor. But if you're buying this looking for a sweet smoke throughout the bowl, you may be disappointed. I'm imagining that the whiskey topping is burned off and you're smoking the reamining burley tobacco. I don't know the proportions of Burley to VA but I'm going to guess it's in the 1:3 ratio as the nutty earthy flavor becomes the predominant flavor profile for the latter half of the bowl. Some Cavendish added to this may help sweeten it up. Alas, I am just a pipe smoker, not a professional blender.

Not a bad tobacco just not what I expected. I would recommend the Dutch Masters Whiskey over this for someone looking for a sweet smoke and a great room note.

Sutliff Private Stock County Cork

Virginian and Burley Tobaccos

Tin Note: Appearance is of Good Cut and Colors Tobaccos Slightly Moist. The Aroma is Very Nice with a sweet whiskey smell

The Burn: Straight out of a newly opened tin, the tobacco smokes good from start to finish. The actual tobacco flavors are of good quality leaf and provide a light to medium bodied smoke. The top note - I agree with Jim that this is smooth and creamy not overly sweet.

Very Flavorful and Enjoyable

When Slightly Dried out before smoking the tobaccos do smoke better and while you loose some of the top notes you can better understand that these are really good tobaccos

My 5 Star rating = 3.5 I recommend this tobacco for those who like an aromatic
