Sutliff - Vanilla Maple #131.
The blend's more of a coarse cut than a straight ribbon, and although it includes some chunky pieces, there's no twigs; it's all smokeable. The pouch-note is sweet, being stronger with maple than it is vanilla. It's a bit too damp, not soaking wet, but slightly moist to the touch.
I enjoy the flavour, I must admit, it's sort of like a guilty pleasure! I find the same situation with the smoke as I did the pouch-note: the maple outweighs the vanilla. The tobaccos' give a simple flavour: honey from the Cav', and some grass from the Va. The flavour's consistent throughout a bowl, with hardly any fluctuation: heavier with maple, than any other taste. It's a very cool, and thick smoke, that doesn't bite.
The room-note's very nice, and the nicotine's mild.
Because I get heap loads more maple than any other taste I'd re-name it Maple #131, and get rid of the word vanilla!
This is a great quality aromatic:
