|Although I have been smoking a pipe casually for several years, I consider myself very much a novice and have not educated my palate to the subtleties of various tobaccos. I enjoy aromatic blends and have been trying some of the Schürch blends for a while.
This is Schürch's most heavily flavored blend. Although the synjeco web site description states that it has an intriguing taste and aroma of "cloves" I am not able to detect this. The pouch aroma is a wonderful vanilla aroma with an underlying aroma that I would describe as molasses (almost like cherry).
The tobacco has a perfect moisture content and burns well. The "wild" cut consists of complex mixture of flakes, ribbons, and black cavendish. Their description states "Several Virginias, RR Flake, Burley and sweet Black Cavendish"
The room note is very pleasant and the flavor while smoking is consistent throughout the bowl. The only tongue bite is from smoking too fast. If paced properly I find this to be an extremely pleasant smoking experience. My wife also likes the aroma and complements the lack of "tobacco smell"...
One of my favorite blends, which I return to on a regular basis. I would be interested in hearing opinions from more experienced pipe smokers!
