Rattray Exotic Orange (a.k.a. Exotic Passion)

Notes: From Smoking Pipes website: Rattray's Exotic Orange is fittingly named, the aroma from the mix of Virginias and black cavendish calling to mind black teas flavored with an orange zest. Due to EU laws, the blend is now called Exotic Passion, though in the USA, it's still labeled Exotic Orange.

Tin note: orange with vanilla, smells almost like some aromatic winter black tea

Needs a lot of relights, I had trouble keeping it lit. Taste wise it's a lot of vanilla, little bit of orange and a lot of "burnt" taste. Sometimes I got a little bit hope, when I tasted nutty flavors, but most of the time it just tastes burnt. Mind you, this tasted burnt when my smoke was cool, so I think it is not due to my smoking skills. I smoked it in cob with a filter (like always). I can only imagine how horrid this must be for those smoking it from unfiltered briar. I suspect the problem is the orange somewhat chemical aroma, so maybe leaving it to dry would solve this problem.

Room note is very pleasant, one of the best room notes I smelled.

Wife approves.

I would recommend this to someone who doesn't mind what he is smoking and just wants to bring a really nice aroma to other people.

Presentation: 10 out of 10 The packaging is beautiful, the tobacco looks appealing with its shades of orange, tan, and black.

Smell: Opening the baggy - it is bagged inside the tin - there is a figgy, fruit tea aroma. It's very sweet and sour like.

Feel: Slight moisture. I allowed it to sit for 15 minutes before trying.

Taste: Can someone say HOT ORANGE JUICE?

Due to the rave reviews and it always being "sold out" within days of restocking, I thought I was missing out on something amazing.

Don't get me wrong, it is amazing that this is an aromatic that tastes as it claims - like oranges- but the reality is not as pleasant as you would think.

If you enjoy drinking your orange juice after it is heated, this will be the smoke for you.
