The smell of the peach bandy flavored tobacco is a little more intense than it is in the smoke. Not much tobacco taste, but that’s not the point of the blend. The same goes for the original, where the peach brandy taste is stronger and a little sharper. The Match burns cool and smooth whereas the original loses a little of the flavor at the finish, and is bitey if puffed fast. The Match doesn’t have that problem. I found the peach in the original is slightly chemically with a sour note whereas the Match avoids those characteristics. Has virtually no nicotine. Burns at a reasonable pace, and leaves a little moisture in the bowl, as did the original. Needs an average number of relights. The after taste is okay. Not quite an all day smoke. I gave the original one star.

Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Match John Rolfe.

I had it in my head that this was an English, that couldn't be further from the truth!

Anyhoo, the presentation of it's coarse, and blimey, it smells strong of peach brandy. The moisture's how I expect a blend supplied from bulk to be, it's smack on.

MJR takes to lighting with only a few quick touches. The flavour? The way the peach brandy comes over is with a 'WHACK!' of very sharp peaches; quite natural, and not overly alcoholic. The tobaccos, although pushed aside by the topping, have a pleasant enough taste; a little mundane, maybe, a VaBurCav, but are perfectly inoffensive. The burn from MJR is a good one, sitting in the middle with temperature, and the smoke only bites when forced to do so.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Match John Rolfe? A decent aromatic, but not a great one. Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.
