The Country Squire Tobacconist Picayune Pancake

Take a step through the garden gate and take delight in a Southern breakfast. Picayune Pancake was whipped up in the kitchen with Toasted Cavendish mixed with a variety of Virginias with cased and natural sweetness to combine for a rich but complex smoking experience. Flavorful with a pleasant room note while still kind to the mouth.

Well, it's OK, and it has a nice taste, however the next day I had to thoroughly clean the pipe I used (Falcon Coolway, with Genoa bowl) - no problem removing the residue from the Coolway, (good old Propan-2-ol) however the old Genoa bowl, a relic of my time back in the UK (pre-1983) had been ghosted in the most dreadful way, so my solution is to exorcise the Second-Breakfast with several charges of neat Latakia! (…it's the only way, and you KNOW it makes sense!)
Pipe Used: Falcon Coolway (Genoa)
PurchasedFrom: it was a gift! (nope I didn't nick it!)

Disclaimer I’m not an aromatic smoker.

The tin note is a little sweet it’s a velvety quality to it like vanilla with out the vinilla scent.

Mild in flavor on the palette. Has almost a wet fresh raw unbaked bread quality to it.
Just a faint sweetness.

Pairs well with a medium roast coffee

Well, I spent the weekend comparing six blends that use maple flavoring. What did you do? Okay, since you’re not gonna fess up, let me tell you how I survived the sugar overload . . .

First round was kind of fun, but by the second round in different pipes, I had kind of had enough of the sweet aros. I like a good aro maybe once a week on Sunday morning, so it’s really gotta be good, and have some lasting power in the jar as it might take upwards of six months to finish a couple ounces. Second Breakfast is not one that will have a permanent place of honor in my rotation, simply because there are others that I enjoy more.

To know whether you will have the same shrug-of-the-shoulders reaction that I had, or have a reaction more in line with some of the other glowing reviews here, you should probably decide beforehand whether you want a really full-blown aromatic with a lot of character, or something more mellow and toned down that you can just load a pipe and let your mind wander. Lots of blends out there for either type of smoker. I’m not talking about semi-aromatics here, where you can still discern the underlying natural tobacco tastes, I’m talking about a sweet blend (with little or no discernable natural tastes) that is just very relaxed and merely suggests flavors rather than shout and waves its arms. This is the relaxed style of aromatic, or what I’d describe as bland.

Nothing wrong here, just in comparison to aromatics with more personality like Choctaw or 4Noggins Thomas, both of which I gave three stars reviews, this has to be rated lower. I wish we could do half star ratings as this would be a 2.5, and Choctaw would be a 3.5, but this is what we have.

Oh, review? Soft, smooth, comforting. Flavors of pancakes and just a teasing few drops of maple syrup, maybe a couple of specks of nutmeg. Winner of the smack down? Autumn Evening. Lots of flavor in that one!
