I really do appreciate the fact that Altadis has been, without fail, sending a box of its blends to our monthly pipe club meetings for almost two years. Sometimes the blends are a big hit, sometimes a true disappointment. Peaches and Cream produced a mixed bag of opinions. So, I'll give it a two star rating as it did please a few of my fellow puffers.
It was the sweetest tasting tobacco I've ever tried, and burned hot. I reserve an old GBD Canadian shaped pipe for aromatics because it is a good smoker that didn't cost me much. My wife loves the way that pipe smells. After a load of Peaches and Cream, she may want to marry it. As for my relationship with Peaches & Cream; it was a quick divorce.
I REALLY liked this tobacco for a short period. It smells fantastic out of the package and in the air. The taste is pretty good for maybe the first half of the pipe but falls flat after that point. Good for if you're with a group of people who really hate pipe tobacco but not much else.
I bought this because I knew that my wife would love the smell. I figured it would be a typical goopy, over flavored aromatic. I like an aromatic and am no snob. I also can enjoy an English blend. I really liked this blend. It was a desert smoke for sure. Not something to always be smoking but I did like it.
Smells a bit like unripe peaches upon opening the package and some vanilla and milk mixed-in. Smoke is smooth as can be. Tastes very good without being overly juicy. Compare with Peterson Summertime 2010 but a notch below. You can taste the peach juice in the air. Very pleasant and a nice springtime treat.
A nice aromatic that smells good. The peach flavor will last throughout the bowl if it doesn't get too hot. This is a great blend for use in a corn cob pipe with a natural finish and a slow, contemplative pace.
