This is the only Uhle's aromatic I've tried. It won't be the last. This is the very rare aro that tastes like it smells! Wonderful! Beautiful creamy smoke. Even a little damp straight out of a sealed pack, it burns well. In my Peterson system pipe, there's no hint of bite. Same flavor throughout the bowl. Quality tobacco base enhanced by a quality topping. I'm regretting getting only 1.5 oz, but because of WI taxes, it's better to mail order when your from out of state, like me. I'm a FIB or FISH, as some Cheeseheads like to call us.

I don't always smoke aromatics. But when I do, it might just be Marquette Blend from now on!

I bought this blend on a whim and I hadn't read the previous reviews. But by and large I thought the positive reviews were spot on in their analysis.

Out of the packaging this blend smells like an aromatic. But it also smells like something else: real honest to goodness tobacco. And good tobacco at that. Unlike many aromatics, it doesn't smell sweet to the point that you're tempted to top it with whipped cream and eat it with a spoon. Just an overall pleasant smell but not cloying in any way.

The taste follows a similar pattern as the scent. What I get is a foundation of very good tobacco, with the flavoring accentuating the base tobaccos. Most aromatics seem to use sub-par tobacco with a load of goopy flavoring that simply dominates and overpowers the mediocre leaf.

To my surprise, for me this tobacco ended up being that sort of elusive blend that somehow encapsulates the best of everything I could hope in both an aro and non-aro. On the one hand I can taste a good deal of meaty, natural tobacco but I also taste a nice bit of sweetness and flavoring that enhances it. In that regard I think this is everything an aromatic should be but in reality almost always falls short of.

As someone who favors Latakia blends but also enjoys a nice aromatic, I can see how some diehard non-aromatic smokers might find this blend too sweet or too flavored. However, I think this has to be a tobacco that would truly appeal to a wide audience, and raise many eyebrows at the same time.

Uhle's tobaccos are blended locally in Milwaukee and to my knowledge they don't have wide distribution in B&M stores outside of Wisconsin and Minnesota. This is a shame because I think this blend is truly top notch. I only tried a couple other Uhle's blends, and I can't say I was jumping out of my seat from them. But I found something really special in this.

If you feel so inclined, jump onto Uhle's website and try this. I think you will be happy you did.

ChicagoPipe is right on: this IS what an aromatic should taste like.

For the last few weeks I've been smoking Uhle's blends exclusively. Day to day I love Blend 71, at night Golden Shag. But I wanted an aromatic for occasional use, something different, so I got a pouch of Marguette Blend.

Wow! Mine is dry and it smokes great that way. (Uhle's pamphlet warns against keeping their tobaccos too moist and advises their customers to allow the tobacco to stay on the dry side) No stickiness or goop ala 1Q. The quality of the leaf appears to be topnotch, it packs easily enough. The usual light-tamp-light sends you right off down the road. What raises this blend above the fray is the silky smooth mixture of flavoring (subtle) and tobacco intermixing during the smoke. While you'll definitely know you are smoking an aromatic, the tobacco seems to display a quieter approach to taste for the smoker, yest has a fantastic room note. Very cool, no bite. Smokes down to a very dry gray ash with not a hint of sizzle. I would think that this would appeal to different types of smokers: the regular aromatic smoker who wants excellent quality or the non-aromatic smoker who wants to avoid the typical goopy/wet/drama of many aromatics.

I have been smoking Uhle's blends on an off for about 30 years. I am glad to see the attention their blends are getting on these reviews. Uhle's is one of the last of it's kind tobacco shop, in business since 1938, and still blending their own blends. I think they have some of the best burley aromatics around!

I tried this blend with my last order, and as with their other blends, this is an excellent aromatic burley based blend. The flavors of rum and vanilla come through very subtlety with excellent flavor of the burleys and red VA. This is what a aromatic should taste like. No sticky sweet taste, no tounge bite and no hot smoke. Burns easily and smokes cool and dry. A great all day smoke!

Highly recommended
