A soft, sweet and very fragrant blend with either the new smoker in mind or the seasoned smoker looking for a break from the heavier blends.

This was a nice little surprise! I was gifted a ME sampler, and was skeptical about the aromatic, but I'm glad I popped the tin.

BF comes in a user-friendly ribbon cut, perfect moisture out of the tin. The taste begins as a straightforward Vanilla cavendish. Unlike a lot of aromatics, the flavor doesn't burn off early on - in fact, it develops throughout the bowl. I found that if I smoked this in a large bowl and get the pace slow, the vanilla become almost caramel-like by the end of the smoke. Room note is pleasant (think Lane 1-Q), nicotine is minimal, burns clean with little maintenance, and doesn't bite in the least.

I don't smoke a lot of aromatics, but this is one I'd buy again.

Pipe Used: Briars, Cobs, Meers

A very light aromatic that did have a tobacco taste, but not much strength at all. Kind of like sucking on Vanilla air. The topping was not light, but not strong either. A pleasant aromatic smoke overall, and it did burn a lot drier than many blends of this type.

WOW is all I can say. If like me you've been looking for that perfect everyday aromatic then look no further. Not only is Nat a really cool guy to talk to (kinda reminds of a surfer dude) but his blends are all really well put together and priced perfectly. I have already bought more to cellar and will continue to have this in my rotation hopefully for ever :)

One of if not the best aromatic blends I've smoked! The different tobaccos are perfectly executed to bring out the the natural sweetness in each different leaf. I think there's vanilla Cavendish in here which adds just a wonderful vanilla note.
