Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Casanova.
The pouch has quite a potent aromatic smell and there's a slightly higher proportion of black to brown ribbons, the black ones are coarser. It's a little too moist, but not soaking.
The smoke isn't the usual heavy vanilla black Cavendish affair. As well as the alcohol there seems to be another sharp addition, citrus fruits maybe? Although this doesn't taste bad in the smoke the same can't be said for the aftertaste. The greater quantity of black Cavendish gives a gentle vanilla flavour. The Virginia and Burley are of an equal weight, both tasting like they're the sweeter variants of their family: some fruit and molasses, as opposed to just grass and nuts, alone. B37 gives an extremely cool smoke, and a good burn.
Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.
B37 Casanova? The description says this 'will catch the ladies attention', but I'm a married man who has no want or need to catch the attention of ladies! So that said, I'll go with my gut feeling, two stars:
Pipe Used: Atinok Meerschaum
