The Virginia is grassy with some citrus. The burley is nutty sweet. The black cavendish offers some vanilla. The rich vanilla topping is compliment by a light caramel and a drop or two of honey. The toppings fairly sublimate the tobaccos, though you will notice them just a little more after the half way point. The nic-hit is extremely mild. Burns at a reasonable pace, cool, clean with a very smooth, consistent flavor. Won’t bite or get harsh. Requires a few relights and leaves a little moisture in the bowl. Has a pleasant after taste and room note. It’s similar to 1-Q with a moderately deeper taste.

This aromatic is nicely done. It has a sweet caramel nuance and a hint of liqueur that subtly rounds this one out. This is a soft aro on the palate with a great subtle flavoring to savor. It burns smooth and mild and doesn't get hot. Burns nice and even til the very end. If you are an aro lover who loves the heavy flavoring, this one isn't for you. This is a delicate nuance that is a smooth as silk smoking experience. Easier and softer than lane 1Q on the smoking experience, and not as heavy on the topping (not the same flavor note of course). More enjoyable than simply the black cavendish based only aros. This has a great room note. It is a great smoke to enjoy around others and a smoke you can enjoy milking the subtly out of. Definitely not an in your face over the top aro. A mild enjoyable smoke you could hit all day. The liquor/liqueur doesn't give you a harshness like some alcohol flavored tobaccos can give - despite a heavy or soft draw, it remains delicate. I'd say if you like the discerning flavor of an aro, this is one to give a shot. If you are new to pipe smoking, this is a great offering. If you like power aros and lots of flavoring, this probably won't fill your need. In my opinion, this is nicely done and worthy of keeping a tin or two around for that time of need for a change of pace.

F & K - Bat With a Hat.

I bought this without reading any of the information, barring the name; it cracked me up!

It's quite a rugged cut, and even though the tin's fairly roomy, allowing breathing space, the blend's still moist. There's less black Cavendish in comparison to the others, and the tin-note's sublime; my first thought was "if it tastes as good as it smells, it's a winner!".

At first light it tastes like quite a simple caramel, vanilla, aromatic, there's no alcohol. It takes until about halfway through for the alcohol/liqueur to strengthen. When it does I'm still unsure as to what sort it is, but the alcoholic piquancy's notable. The casing stops some of the tobaccos getting through, and, given the larger quantity, the tobacco that gets the most of the stage is the Burley.

There isn't much nicotine in B.W.A.H, and the room-note's very pleasant.

I got this because of the funny name, but it's a good smoke. Recommended.

Four stars.

From beginning to end it's an enjoyable smoke. Mild yet satisfying. Easy to smoke, burns well and doesn't bite. Any fan of aros will be in for a treat. I've gone through 2 tins so far and it just gets better. Room note is girlfriend approved!

Extremely Mild Very Strong Full Very Pleasant

This particular tobacco is more suited for the novice smoker as it is overly cased and presents no qualities indicative of tobacco being an ingredient. That being said, if you are into such products, you'll probably enjoy it as the flavoring is very confectionary and very pronounced. However, being a more seasoned pipe smoker, I find the casing to be very cloying and unworthy of a second bowl.
