On rare occasions, this one pops up on eBay and when it does the bidding is usually low enough where I can scarf the tin. I love it! I am a fan of maple flavoring in my aromatic blends and this one has a strong maple flavor added to the Burley. The Virginia taste never came through for me although the descriptive indicates there is some Virginia leaf in this one. Not a strong tobacco regards nicotine, but sure is strong regards maple flavoring. Whenever I smoke it my wife says it reminds her of breakfast. Bring on the waffles!

Radfords - Black Maple. This is what I call a good aromatic.

When I opened the pouch I couldn't believe how black it was; it's one of the darkest blends I've ever encountered! The smell instantly implies 'sweet smoke'; this is dead right!

It only takes a few puffs for me to realize how good an aromatic this is. The maple is without a doubt the captain of the ship, it leads the way nicely! I find with the flavour, the topping doesn't seem too thick, it's strong but it's not gloopy.

I find any tobacco flavours from this to be very mild, exactly as I'd expect from the tobaccos included; it's a very relaxing smoke.

Nicotine fits the caption 'very mild' too; it wouldn't harm a fly!

This is a cracking aromatic; a perfect beginners blend, great evening smoke and the note makes it superb to be smoked in company!

Highly recommended.
