​They told Julius Caesar to beware the ides of March, but we Americans have to beware the ides of April, when the IRS comes a-knockin'. As Tax Day approaches, you need something soothing to melt your troubles away. So try our newest blend - The Taxman Cometh. This is a comforting blend of Burley and black Cavendish with a subtle flavor that's not-too-sweet, has a pleasant aroma, and is gentle enough to put you back into a peaceful frame of mind.

The burley is lightly toasty, nutty with a little molasses, and you’ll notice it to some extent most of the time. The black cavendish has a light vanilla taste, which is amplified - or disguised, perhaps - to some extent by the mild vanilla topping. I get a sense of caramel which would come from a topping, too. No nicotine; maybe it ran so it wouldn’t pay any taxes? Lightly moist, it burns at a reasonable pace, cool, clean, and even with a smooth, consistent flavor. Requires few relights, and leaves just a little moisture in the bowl. Won’t bite or get harsh no matter how fast you puff. Has a pleasant after taste and very pleasant room note. A tamer version of 1-Q in some ways and a lighter version of Sutliff Burley and Black in another, it’s a very mild, easy going all day smoke that might make a decent mixer, too, though it does suffer a little from a lack of richness.

This is a great blend for when I want an aromatic that isn't too sweet. It has the vanilla and caramel there, but it doesn't slap you in the face with sweetness. I can still enjoy the tobacco underneath the flavors. It is a bit like lane 1-q, and goes great in a pot shaped pipe bowl. I use the Morgan from Missouri meerschaum for this blend. All in a decent aromatic blend with a very nice aroma

Medium Medium Mild Pleasant

Opening a fresh baggie of The Taxman Cometh, I was greeted with chocolate brown and black ribbons, with the brown dominating. It smelled of vanilla and cocoa, and it was moist but crisp. An unlit sip brought a light vanilla taste, and the initial light made the vanilla come through solidly. Overall this was a very straightforward aromatic; there is nothing fancy about this blend to me. The Cavendish taste dominates the light vanilla topping, and every so often there is a bit of nutty burley. This blend did not bite and probably could be smoked all day if someone was inclined. The finish was long and left a good mustache note and a pleasant room note. I wanted this blend to be more than it was, but if someone likes simple all day aromatics it may be worth a try.

This blend kind of reminds me of a slightly sweeter Lane 1Q. If you like 1Q, you will like this blend. Mildly sweet kind of like vanilla, all day smoke.
