This one of the newer (at least to my knowledge), blends that G&H has released. The Vanilla employed in this one reeks of quality and is as fine a Vanilla flavored blend as I've ever had the pleasure to put in one of my pipes.
The outstanding Virginia employed, plus the discreet Vanilla flavoring presents a true tobacco taste (even with some punch in the strength department), without overwhelming the palate with Vanilla.
This tobacco is somewhat finely ribbon cut and burns clean, cool and dry all the way to the bottom of the bowl. G&H has done it again with another quality blend and I think lovers of Vanilla flavored tobacco will go nuts over this one.
I was so looking forward to trying this one, but unfortunately I was disappointed to say the least. Vanilla, yes, but it didn't work at all for me, I dunno, it just didn't seem right. Had a few bowls from my 25g pack, but the rest ended up in the bin!
Another step on the eternal journey to find the best aromatic for me. At best this is OK. Not completely unpleasant but halfway through the bowl the vanilla gives way to a generic "playdoh" flavour that most aromatics seem to get to. This doesn't have that cloying sticky coating that makes the blend impossible to dry out and coats the inside of the mouth. A good relatively dry blend which is easy to pack and burns great without tongue bite. Not terrible but not great.
