Mild to Medium Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Full disclosure: I am the co-creator of this blend. The star attraction is the deeply rich, mildly creamy peanut butter topping. The nutty, earthy, woody, toasty white burley has a very mild effect. The noticeable aspects of the Virginia and burley cavendish are light floral, nutty, earthy, woody, honey accents. The Virginia faintly offers grass, tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, and sugar. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is just short of the medium threshold. The nic-hit is a notch past the mild mark. Won’t bite or get harsh. Has a few very light rough notes. The blend is a little moist, but I saw no need to dry it. Burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent sweetness that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl. Requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Has an attractive room note. Can be an all day smoke. Four stars.

Something different. First few puffs were more butter than peanut. Then the nut mildly appeared. Not bad alone, if aromatics is your thing. Excellent with Wilke's Chocolate mixed in, with a sprinkling of burley. Even better with some of Wilke's Englishes mixed in. To each his own. I think I like.

As a newbie pipe smoker this tobacco is great. Very pleasant aromatics with nice toasted peanut notes. Burn is excellent as well. Highly recommended. Will keep this one stocked.
