Edward's Sweet Vanilla

An exquisite blend of shortcut Dark Cavendish, ribbon cut Light Cavendish, and Carolina Flake for appearance, this deliciously aromatic blend adds just the right amount of vanilla to carry the flavor to the finish of the bowl. Don't let the "sweet" in the name mislead, this is a very aromatic, yet cool, dry smoke that is sure to satisfy.

I was in the Tampa store searching for a blend that had that satisfying aromatic room note, but one which also yielded up a mild flavor, ie, still allowing some of the room note flavor to come through without overpowering. The sweet vanilla was suggested, with the tobacconist cautioning that the 'sweet' was merely part of the descriptive name, not to be confused with suggesting yet another goopy aromatic. From the first bowl, that vanilla scent eminating elicited comments, all positive. And the taste was delicious, the nutty flavors came through nicely with a satisfying dose of the vanilla casing, and every so often a rich burst of it came to the tongue as a creamy accent to the nut-like blend. I went through one pouch quickly and returned to the store to compliment them on one fine blend, catching Manny Busciglio tending the tobacco bar that day. His comments were that the Sweet Vanilla blend was formulated precisely to give that vanilla the staying power to last the entire bowl, without being 'overdone'. I contend Manny hit the mark with his blend, and Sweet Vanilla has been a top seller since its inception in August 2003. It's my 'go-to' tobacco when I really want a flavorful smoke that is cool, dry, and with no bite...and a lingering aftertaste that tempts another bowlful. As far as 'wife-rating', mine tells me it's her favorite, and it was validated one evening while having a bowl outside a trendy Tampa restaurant. A female patron walked from the restaurant and passed by, got about 10 paces away and then turned and remarked, "wow, that tobacco smells heavenly...really nice". My suggestion: order it up and enjoy!
