Sutliff Tobacco Co. - SPS-2003 Strawberry Delight.
The strawberries dominate the pouch-note, but there's a notable trait of vanilla and chocolate, too. It's a little moist but that's how I like a blend to be. Some of it's fairly coarse and the smallest addition is the black Cavendish.
There's no contending that this is a strongly cased aromatic. The strawberry flavour has quite a sharpness and is very sweet. This over zealousness is somewhat placated by the other ingredients. Somewhat placated, not completely vanquished! This placation takes until after about a quarter bowl, up until then the strawberry monopolizes the smoke, completely. Personally, after the strawberry, I find the Vanilla more of a player than the other additions. I only get a smidgen of black Cavendish stickiness, the Burley and Virginia account for a lot more of the flavour. The burn from it's good: consistent, even, and cool. The strong topping can cause a spot of tongue bite if a gentle technique's not employed.
Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: very pleasant.
SPS-2003? It's a well made blend but falls under the header 'too sickly' for me. Somewhat recommended:
