Named after the mythical Avalon, the place where the wounded King Arthur once withdrew, Larsen presents with this mixture an extremely mild tobacco. Virginia and a pinch of Black Cavendish combine to form a finely balanced mixture that never lets you feel the spiciness. Its red wine aroma gives the Avalon a fine, fruity taste without covering up the natural tobacco notes.

Mild Medium Very Full Pleasant to Tolerable

My quest for that pure Vanilla pipe tobacco has come to an end. Stanwell Vanilla is officially one of my favorite aromatics as of yet. This blend smokes beautifully dry, sweet, and creamy. A treat for the connoisseur of aromatics, but also a good starter blend. Upon cracking open the tin, I was greeted with the strong (but pleasant) scent of vanilla beans, nutmeg, and sugar. Upon packing a bowl, I took a puff and was delighted to find that this beautifully topped blend smoked creamy, cool, and sweet. It has the obvious flavor of vanilla, without the sour smell or taste common in other vanilla aromatic tobacco, and it has a wonderful buttery note that rounds out the flavor nicely. Stanwell Vanilla reminds me of the holidays, when around Christmas time, my father and I made home made eggnog from scratch. It tasted creamy, sweet, smooth and was always loaded with vanilla. This is a delightful, mild blend that any pipe smoker would enjoy. A little tip though; when packing, make sure to use the Air Pocket or the Frank method. I've found that the three step method makes for a gurgly smoke, but maybe I just pack it too tightly that way. Pack it right, relax and light up! You'll immediately see your troubles wisp away in a creamy white cloud, and you'll taste the sweet joy that comes from smoking a pipe.

I could not perceive any wine here... Thh casing is strange, not bad, but not a delight either. It is a bland tasting blend, oky roomnote... Do not lose your time or money on this.

Bizarre tasting, very wet (I cannot say whether from the wine or the humectants), but a very attractive tin. I do not have the heart to recommend the mixture to anyone (deserves to be smitten with Excalibur) but the tin is a delight.
