Thomas Radford Sunday's Fantasy

Deluxe quality for those who demand the best. Fine, hand picked Virginia tobaccos and high quality, twice-fermented black cavendish. An unusual combination of granulate and wild cut makes this an extremely loose pipe tobacco mixture. The aroma of natural fruit complements the tobacco to produce an extremely mild, balanced taste experience.

Again, the tin looks nice very classic. The tobacco, however, is modern. The leaf are processed and manipulated in pretty hi-tech way. It is big flake cut with very thin pieces of bright virginias mixed with heavily flavored black leaf of different kind. It smells fresh with vanilla and a mild hint of peach. The smell is pretty overwhleming but the tobacco fells very dry and smooth to the touch when loading it to the pipe...hum.....a real kind of technology maybe? Lighting is easy. The vanilla, to my surprise fades into the back ground. It was the peach that overwhelm in room note and the taste in mouth. No tobacco taste at all while smoking it. And when I stop puffing and try to engage in a conversation, the taste of tobacco some how creeps through. And as I puff I notice this is one of the closest thing to a bitless tobacco. I highly recomend this blend to weekend pipers. Also, it is a must have as a colllection for bohemian socialists. As for me who usaully who only do aromatic during gatherings, this is not too bad. I sometimes light this weed up in my own time.

Upon opening the tin the aroma is a mixture of sweet virginia and fermented fruit.

Because of the wild cut tobacco in this mixture and it's subsequent very loose nature, careful packing is required. Because I use the pinch method this doesn't present too much of a problem.

lighting is a synch; one carring light, a reasonably firm tamper, another light and that's it! Burns evenly to the bottom of the bowl. Doesn't burn as fast as some aromatics.

The taste is delicious: you can detect even amounts of sweet, very high quality virginia leaf and a casing of peach that isn't too faint or sweet and sickly. Not gloopy at all and smokes quite dry.

I'm told the room note is wonderfull. On the downside it does burn a bit hot and can bite the tongue, throat and palate quite badly if you're not careful; slow and even drawing are required! It's very mild in the nicotine department but still requires regular resting to avoid being bitten.

Pros: Wonderful fruity aroma and taste. Near perfect moisture content. No change in taste upon re-lights and smokes evenly and quite slowly for an aromatic.

Cons: Burns hot and does require very careful packing.

A very high quality blend that tastes and smells great but watch it's bite! If you like aromatics that are not too sweet and gloopy, this could be the blend you're looking for. A wonderfull, light smoke.

This was recommended to me by a fellow "latakia" junkie, actually he begged me to try this. I rarely smoke aromatics these days and lately I've been burned-out on "evening stroll" so after much harassing by my friend, I plunked down my $7.00 for a 50g tin. As i drove home, I coulnd't help thinking I could have saved my money and bought another tin of "Raven's Wing" to cellar. Well on to the review: Upon opening, you are greeted by a pleasant surprise of square-cut, high quality leaf in the half-gold, half-dark cavendish mix. The topping is strong out of the tin, but is very appealing. It smells like vanilla/berries. Moisture is dry for an aromatic but perfect for smoking. Packing is a breeze, lighting is a three vesta affair. You may have to run a pipe-cleaner through as you smoke this, but that happens with non-aromatics too. Flavor is the surprise. The topping is not as strong in the smoke as it seems in the tin. As a matter of fact, the virginia and cavendish are quite good and the topping does not taste "chemically" at all. This blend is truly a high quality aromatic. It is my new "holy grail" of aromatic blends. I smoked several bowls of this back to back without any of the acridity that some aromatics give me. The leaf comes out very nicely at mid to bottom of the bowl. Go out and get tins of this asap. You will be pleasantly surprised. Rating 5 out of 5 points, this would have been a perfect smoke for the Synod of Dort. Enjoy...
