First of all - I am a total Maplephile and I have been checking out Maple tobacco blends for some time.

Based on the previous review - I really wanted to like this blend -and give it 5 stars - but I am finding the Maple in this tobacco tends to lean towards a Maple Sap kind of taste.

This Maple blend will appeal to those folks who don't like their aromatics overly sweet. In comparison - Vermont Maple Cavendish by Pipeworks & Wilke - is definitely on the sweeter/praline side of the Maple Spectrum - which is something I really enjoy.

The blend smokes well and is layered with a buttery/toffee component - sometimes vanilla. There is a lovely fullness on the palate. I don't get rum or brown sugar per se - but it does have a wonderful complexity.

I would love this blend more if the Maple Flavor would be a wee more pronounced. I will definitely order more when I am looking for a Maple blend ala Naturale.

I have been smoking this blend more often - So - I may upgrade it to 5 stars - right now - 4 stars. Vermont Maple Cavendish gets 5. This blend is Definitely Recommended.

4/9/2015 Ok maybe my tastes have changed but I got new shipment of this Fine Blend - and I am finding it smokes just right. Lots of Maple Flavor, Brown Sugar, Vanilla and a hint of Rum. Two thumbs up on this one. Bumping it up another Star!

Another 5 star aromatic blend from Rich's! I love maple beyond all belief. Maple syrup, maple candy, and Maple Ice ream are all my favorites. In my search for the perfect Maple Tobacco I have tried Autumn Ev. (TOO HOT), Vermont Maple CAV.(not enough flavor), and Townsmen Blue MAPLE( a waste of good tobacco and$$). I was about to give up when Steve at Rich's suggested this CUSTOM MIXTURE. This is a Pancake breakfast and very well balanced. The major difference with this tobacco and others of this genre is the following. :BROWN SUGAR.This is a wonderful sweet maple/brown sugar flavor. The addition of Rum is also a nice touch.This is a sweet ( Bleeker Street) and very MAPLEY smoke. Never hot, no goop, and very little gurgle. 5 Maple stars for this one.
