The Country Squire Tobacconist White Rose

This soft burley and cavendish mixture will be one of the most unique aromatics in your cellar. The pronounced honey topping at times resembles tea, or even rum. The sophisticated pipe smoker will immediate appreciate the essence of Lakeland tobacco characteristics, as rosewater is apparent on the exhale. A sweet, perfumed delight!

Well, this one wasn’t for me, but if you do like it at least that shows you have distinctive taste! I’ve made some blends using both rosewater and one really heady blend using actual dried rose petals and Perique! So I was curious. I’ve also done a lot with different honeys in casing, even went to a Farmer’s Market where they were sampling eight kinds of honeys from different flowers. One of them had a spiciness that reminds me of what is used here.

Overall I find this too delicate and subtle in flavor to hold my interest. If it’s honey you’re after the best I’ve had is Boswell’s Honey Roast (review forthcoming). I also wonder whether there is batch variation or something has changed since the time of the initial reviews years ago which rocketed this up to a 3.8 rating.

Since my two ounces came rather moist I found some drying time helped, but that somewhat diminished the already delicate floral character. Sorry to say this is the only Squire product I’ve given away. So far the recipient hasn’t commented on the forum, so that may be an indication that he didn’t like it either!
