Frederick Tranter Comfort of Bath

(3.43)
In flavour and aroma this strikes a neat balance between traditional Dark Virginias and aromatic tobaccos. Rich and satisfying.

This was the first tobacco I ever smoked, as recommended by Frederick Tranter's, and I loved it. It's still my all time favourite and it has just about everything I look for in a good tobacco: flavour, complexity, room note and mellowness.

Depth and complexity from good quality tobacco, especially the Cavendish which gives it a fermented almost alcoholic aroma. Sweet fruitiness from good quality and well balanced flavouring that doesn't overpower the tobacco. A fantastic room note and a long cool smoke with no tongue bite.

Those who prefer their tobacco very strong or free from any flavouring will obviously not take to this one, but I would urge anyone who enjoys a top quality aromatic or who just wants something with a good rounded flavour to give it a try.

When first purchased it's often a little wet and can clump together in the bowl so I let it dry just slightly and then it packs and lights perfectly.

As a rule, I am not a huge aromatic fan, but this blend is a wonderful find. I have long sought after that Pipe Smoke smell from years gone by and this is so very close to that. It has all been said in the previous reviews about the taste and behaviour of this tobacco (which is excellent). I just wanted to add my voice to the few here saying how good it is.

STRENGTH: Medium tobacco strength. Average nicotine content.

TASTE: Outstanding flavor and full complexity. Tolerable aftertaste.

EASE OF SMOKING: Average. It smokes quite hot, requires relighting and causes occasional gurgling and tongue bite.

ROOM & BOWL: Very pleasant room note. Nice smell left in bowl.
