|This is a very nice aromatic pipe tobacco. It has a pleasant taste and surely will be a good choice for aromatic pipe tobacco friends.
The tobacco seems of a good quality and it burns nice without great effort. When you light it and it gets started it goes on nicely. Nice honey and light bourbon vanilla taste gives a very nice smoking. The room note is pleasant, I felt no tongue bite. Virginia tobaccos of good quality and Cavendish tobacco with a spicy taste that is adding interesting character in this blend.
I believe aromatic pipe tobacco lovers should give a try to this good aromatic blend.
|One of the favourites of an old friend, I tried this blend a few times over the last year or so, and must say it is a nice tobacco.
The tin note is very nice, the VA shining through with a touch of something sweet and honey-ish. The leaf stuffs easily and lights up in one go to please the smoker with a creamily smooth, mild smoke that still has a very nice and full taste; sweet, with a very slight note of vanilla and honey, and a hint of spice provided by the Black Cavendish.
The room note is beautiful; light, sweet and lingering, a true pleaser.
Unfortunately, like many other aromatics, this 'baccy turns bitter and tarry towards the end; I have not managed to smoke even one bowl to the very end.
I admit it: I am spoiled by having smoked many truly great blends recently. Otherwise, this would get three stars. As it is, I am missing punch, and I had to re-light a few times too many for a blend that I can't smoke down to the bottom.
I still recommend heartily to the light aromatics smoker: it's not bad, just doesn't fill my needs at this time.
