Boswell Pipes & Tobacco Majestic 586

A blend of toasted cavendish with some burleys and broad cut Virginias with a satisfying sweet taste. Dark tobaccos contrast with the golden yellow of Virginia. While smoking, the taste mellows and remains very rich until the end with out losing any of its personality. Especially good on relights.

Well for an aromatic this is a somewhat interesting blend. Opening note is some fruity and a little chocolate aroma. Lights fine and is not that damp of a blend. Taste is a come and go experience with some honey, fruity and perhaps some chocolate flavor. No taste really stands out and none of them are anything but mild. It's a decent aromatic with some interesting flavors; however nothing stands out in this blend. Room note smells of mostly fruit and a hint of chocolate but all aromas are very mild.

Wow- first let me say I'll have to revisit this after a few more bowls. Second, I've never had such a tough time trying to figure out a tobacco before.

I just picked up an ounce of this on my visit to Boswell's last week. I'm a huge fan of their blends and am in the process of running through them. So I picked this because of the description on their website more than anything... but also on a recommendation... AFTER they offered the more typical ones, no-bite delight, piper's pleasure, and others... they came to this because I love their Sweet Tea blend so much.

Opening the bag it was incredible... strong caramel smell mixed with slight hints of vanilla and coffee is what my nose picks up. Packs well and the charring light opens up an aroma that is to die for. The relight unleashes a half a bowl of heaven. Sweet and tasty but not sugary. Since I always compare tot he sweet tea, I would say similar sweetness, but not as light or clean.. it has a little more of the heaviness of the Virginia tobacco in it and definitely more of the caramel, chocolate, vanilla notes of the more bodied Cavendish blends I've had. Think Captain Black almost... but better. The room note and sweetness of the first half of the bowl had me thinking I've found a new favorite. Really, I was impressed... sniffing the bowl and the smoke a lot... it was intoxicating.

Then I got to the second half and it all fell apart. The aromatic quality was still there with a great room note, but the flavor fell out almost completely and the taste for the entire 2nd half of the bowl was unpleasant. I figured based on the other reviewers and the fact of the Virginias in the blend it would be awesome to the bottom, but it got worse and worse.

So I'm left a little befuddled... how could it start out as one of the best out there and finish as a 2 star blend? I'm going to give it 3 stars only because the first half really was great... if I were rating on the 2nd half it'd be a 2 star blend.

Like I said I should update after a few more bowls and see how it changes.

This is an OK tobacco, just a wee bit too mild for my tastes. Not too much going for it strength wise, and very mild on the flavor. This was one of the only aro'tobacco that tastes better as it smokes down and on relights. Seems to taste and look like the 'nobite delite' except with a different/less topping. No bite to it at ALL just like the rest of bosewells stuff although it can heat up if you puff away at it trying to taste something.

. This would only get two stars if not for the amazing room note--It brought back memories from when I was a kid and first smelled pipesmoke, you know, that smell that is intoxicating and smells so amazing from 50 feet away that it made you want to smoke a pipe as soon as you were old enough. The taste is a-lot like captainblack, maybe a bit more burley/vanilla taste to it. Might order more of this in the future so I have something I can smoke in public or just puff away mindlessly while working on the car ect. If you love aromatics then you need to give this one a try, like the reviews before me "you wont regret it"

If you are a beginner and reading this, then don't hesitate to try any of the Bosewell's tobacco. Its all 10x better than Drugstore brands and are extremely forgiving (puff as hard and fast as you want!)
