If you just read the old Can opener's review, then you have really don't need to read mine. The tin looked inviting. The smell in the tin was very sweet (thought I was whiffing rose petals), and at the match, well, like I said, ditto Can Opener.

If you like aromatics, I guess you can try this, but if you like more of a tobacco flavor, duck and run from Como!

This is perhaps the most unusual tobacco I've ever tried. I can see how people would have a love or hate relationship with it. As for me, I love it. It's very smooth, smokes very dryly and leaves a very pleasant floral and tobacco room note. Sadly, there is nothing else on the market like it.

I picked up a tin of this after not being able to find any more Lombardo. It is certainly a different tobacco. The tin note is one of the most unusual I've ever smelled. As the description above states, this aromatic is infused with Hickory Nut and Exotic Fruit. I can't identify the fruit but its pleasant and translates into a very likeable room note.

In the tin this was dry, appropriately dry, along the lines of a Cornell and Diehl aromatic. In the pipe, I have to say, this is the driest aromatic I've ever smoked. I found it to be very smooth and pleasant without changing much down the bowl. I could see where this might go hot for some but for me, its been a cool smoke without any bite. Not much of a rich tobacco taste but not as artificial as other have found. Overall, I like it a lot and recommend you give it a try if you enjoy unusual aeromatics.

Let me start off by saying that I like a good aromatic. However, the flavoring in this tobacco leaves a stink-stain in my pipes comparable to roses. If you like smoking leaf that tastes like it should come from a botanical garden rather than from a tobacco farm, this one's for you.

I smoke this in the evenings after a long hard day. Very sweet smell in the can, also is sweet as you smoke it. You must like an aromatic to like this. Will bit if puffed to quickly.

This was a great tobacco but died through obscurity. I wish it would relaunch. It was slightly stronger tasting than blue note, in which class I place this. Take reiner professional, and add some strawberry, and you get a good idea of what this blend tasted like. It was almost fruit punch like, but due to the nut topping, came into a class of its own. I hesitate to call it floral, but it was close via the medley.

I had a couple of high end pipes dedicated to this blend, and the last I saw of it was on tobacco market before they closed down unexpectedly.

It was one of the best aromatics ever, with a very family friendly room note.
