Dang this is Superb! Love it - mild enough for an all day smoke, with enough taste to make lighting up worth while. Room note is wonderful as a bonus - MY personal FAVORITE

Mild to Medium Medium to Strong Medium Pleasant

Another sweet ultra topped Cavendish Aromatic from Boswell. Compared to other vanilla tobaccos I've smoked, this one has a beefier burnt sugar coating plowing up your nose (the listed butterscotch perhaps), so nothing refined here.

Like their other sticky products, extra drying time is pointless since the "resin feel" doesn't go away, and burns readily anyways. I never got much nuance in taste beyond a general sweetness that never develops. It was neither awful nor exciting. Route 22 felt a tad stronger than their other Aromatics, creeping up on medium, though certainly not a strong or nicotine heavy product out of context.

It may seem a bit suspect that I am giving all the Boswell Aromatics the same 2 star rating, but they honestly all perform about the same. When it come down to it, just pick the name you like best, as no matter which you choose, expect the same overly topeed product that won't bite and fills your cheeks with sugar. That said, this was my least favorite, with No Bite Delight being the frontrunner for being the closest to represent it's flavor (chocolate).

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

My first review and I'm not terribly skilled in detecting nuanced flavors. Came here to say I bought this and forgot about it for over a year. Sampled it from the zip lock bag Boswell ships it in. It is basically a better 1Q. Had perfect moisture content out of the bag; not sure how moist it may have been a year ago. Very easy to keep lit, satisfying voluminous smoke, pleasant room odor. Sometimes a simple smoke without having to analyze it to death is very satisfying.

Pipe Used: Stanwell legend. Bent apple.

Mild Mild Mild Pleasant

Very nice mild smoke. Light vanilla top note with possibly and even lighter caramel touch. I have also detected a slight occasionally noticeable flavor that strikes me as cinnamon . The flavor remains constant throughout the bowl with no bite. Route 22 is certainly not a powerhouse smoke but is a very good all day blend.
