Sometimes the best things are discovered by accident, as was the case with Serendipity. Burley, Virginia and flavored black cavendish are highlighted with lemon, cinnamon and blackberry notes.

Sutliff Tobacco Co. - Serendipity.

I've had a few problems in my private life this week, but today has been more suited to post a few reviews of what I've been smoking when I've had time.

This isn't what I expected. Cup O' Joes packaged it as Blueberry Serendipity so I expected a plain old fruity aro', but there's more to it.

The Burley and Virginia account for a lot more than the black Cavendish, preventing it being a sticky, heavy, mess. I don't find the berries to be as formidable as I'd expected. They give flavour, but the cinnamon isn't far behind. The lemon gives a slight zestiness, but is the lighter of the three additives. The burn from Serendipity's good: even, cool and the smoke doesn't bite.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Serendipity? It isn't just a boring old berry aromatic, but I enjoy it no more than two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Pipe Used: Various

Age When Smoked: 4 months

Update on 3/19/08 I'm downgrading this a star because I've now had some true 4 star tobaccos. This is still a nice smoke, just not worthy of the 4 star rating.

Original Review on 5/30/07 follows Pop open the pouch and check out the aroma and it reminds me of caramel. This is currently my favorite after trying about 15 different types and it is by far better than the others I've tried. Pack it not too tightly and you are rewarded with an awesome smoke that usually won't go out, as long as you pay her enough attention. Gives off a really nice aroma that I just find myself sniffing all the time. Kick back in the favorite chair on the deck and puff away on this one, ahhh, not much better unless you've also got a cup of Trader Joe's Volcano coffee to go with it. I'm definitely keeping this one stocked in the humidor.

This is your typical Altadis aromatic. It has good flavor and good burning qualities. The problem with this and most other Altadis blends is that they have no idea how to balance flavors. There is a lot of cinnamon and berry flavor and just a bit of lemon zest. The problem is that there is no tobacco taste at all just topping. This blend is not as bad if blended. It is also fairly wet smoking.

Another in Altadis rather extensive line of bulk aromatic?s. This is a desert smoke, a heavily flavored aromatic. A good amount of Altadis? standard berry flavoring, with undertones of cinnamon. Personally, I find it very pleasant indeed. Very little bite noted, has a tendancy to be a bit hot, but less so than some other Altadis? heavy aromatics. Not an all day tobacco by any means but a pleasant occasional treat.
