Mild Mild to Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

An Argentine tobacco that almost makes you never smoke again.

The first tobacco you buy when you start smoking pipe, recommended by a vendor who referred to it as "the tobacco that everyone carries". To be carried away by this comment at the moment of starting my journey through the world of the pipe almost kicked me out of it.

Composed mainly of Virginias and Burley, the caramelized aroma of the supposed vanilla takes away completely the odors that could have the tobaccos. To the touch it feels quite humid and slightly sticky, and at the moment of smoking it feels excessively sweet, almost false, with a caramel flavor with slight tones like chocolate, but that bites like the devil.

At the time of smoking, perhaps because of the inexperience of the first few times he heated the bowl like a fireplace and constantly biting, over time manage to lower the temperature of the puffs, but even then there was no time that it did not bite.

Not recommended for people who are starting in the world of pipes, and within the wide variety of options vanilla flavored tobacco seems to me to be far behind in the list of options.

Extremely Mild Strong Very Mild Tolerable

Bueno, Argento no hace aromáticos de mala calidad, el de whisky y chocolate y el de vainilla, creo yo que no son ni mejores ni peores que otras marcas que hacen aromáticos a un precio accesible (Mac Baren por ejemplo)

Al abrir la bolsa del Argento Vainilla Mixture, nos encontramos con un aroma que lo podemos separar (En el Mac Baren loose cut, el aroma es igual en todo el paquete) podemos oler la virginia joven de un lado, el aroma a vainilla del otro. El encendido es un poco complicado ya que vienen bastante húmedos.

El sabor es un poco parecido al aroma, podemos sentir tanto el gusto a virginia joven, como el sabor a vainilla,flan, caramelo de la mezcla aromática.

En definitiva creo que es un aromático que está bien, la fuerza es muy leve y nunca nos llega a llenar, en un punto es como fumar aire.

Edición 4/11/2021 Bueno no sé por qué compre otro pouch de esto, la cuestión es que lo compré. Vino totalmente empapado y con un aroma a flan muy fuerte, casi que te descompone; del sabor ni hablemos, horrible, químico hasta decir basta. no puedo terminar ni una pipa.

Le pongo una estrella, pero si pudiera le pondría cero

Mild Very Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Tolerable

Tempted by some reviews here, i decided to give it a try. The pouch smells alright, when you open it, the strong aroma of vanilla and chocolate welcomes you. The tobacco it's fairly wet, so wet that has trouble staying lit. With some eagerness i filled up the bowl and light it. after some puffs that eagerness changed to disappointment, oh boy, it was a bad experience, the vanilla aroma disappeared i don't know where, wasn't there, maybe yes but the smell and taste was from a cheap cigarette, overwhelmed everything, so i did my best, and went to empty my bowl and call it a day. After an hour or so you could notice the vanilla aroma.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Probably the best aromatic of argento. Virginia and burley of good quality, better than those used in the other aromatics of this brand. Cut and humidity are ideal.

The vanilla casing is of similar quality to other European tobaccos, as pleasantly natural or unpleasantly artificial as the taste of each one determines, but not inferior to other commercial blends which usually cost twice as much.

As all American-style aromatics should be smoked carefully since if it is not done properly it may bite quite a lot. Doing this the mixture can provide a very pleasant smoke where a definite vanilla flavor and perhaps some caramel does not dull the taste of good quality tobacco
