An American style blend made from golden Virginia, Cavendish and Burley tobaccos with a slight vanilla overlay and flavoured with pineapple which provides a flavoursome smoke, mild to medium in strength.
My Smoking Shop-Pineapple & Vanilla. I must admit I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this, pineapple and vanilla? What a strange concoction I thought! It's not the best out of all of the My Smoking Shop range but it's not too bad.
The appearance is a lot closer to course cut than ready rubbed, it's quite 'chunky'.
The aroma is very pineapple like, it smells a touch exotic!
In the smoke the pineapple by far outweighs the vanilla, the vanilla sort of adds a slight creaminess but it's nowhere near as strong.
The nicotine is just below medium, it could be too weak for some smokers.
I get a very independent burn, once lit it only needs very slight attention. It can be smoked for quite a while without any re-lights or tamps.
I find the pineapple flavour is too strong to allow much of the tobacco flavours to come through. This is a full on aromatic blend.
The room note is very enjoyable. Exotic, tropical and not too full.
This is a blend that would suit a true aromatic smoker. I'm not one of those so I can only give it two stars.
Friend gave me a pinch or two to try. Well I tried it not expecting too much. I was not dolisappointed in what was expected. Simply.....not much at all. This is one of the most nondescript blends I have ever smoked. There is just little or nothing here. Not even a moderate tobacco flavor. Did I taste any pineapple....nope really kind of like smoking a cheap English blend to me and even that was not very good. I didn't tell my friend what I thought and thankfully he didn't ask me. I think he knew because he didn't even finish his bowl. This to me is a totally non-recommendation tobacco blend for me.
