Very Mild Mild to Medium Very Mild Pleasant

The burley is toasty, earthy, woody and nutty as the lead component. The Virginia cavendish offers a little grass, tart and tangy citrus and toast as a supporting player. While sublimated by the toppings, you will notice them to a small extent, and slightly more so in the last third the bowl. The sweet rum and butter are more noticeable than the vanilla, which is a minor player. The strength and taste levels are very mild. Has no nic-hit of consequence. Burns fairly cool and rather clean at a moderate pace with a fairly consistent taste, though it may get a little harsh near the finish if you puff fast. Won't bite. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, but it will burn to ash. Requires an average number of relights. The weak, short lived after taste and room notes are pleasant. The toppings lack depth of flavor which hurts the blend in general. An all day smoke.

A favorite of the wife and my son knew what the flavor was right from the jar! This tobacco was a very pleasant and tasty smoke. For me the tobacco was kind of ho hum but the flavor more than made up for the ho hum tobacco. This does not mean that this is a home run aromatic but is a smoke that I am not afraid to light up on my lunch break at work. That being said it is a decent tobacco to have when the smoking police are near and I can woo them with a very pleasant aroma!

In the pouch, Buttered Rum has a pleasant butterscotch scent. It appears to me mainly or all Burley. As American style aromatics go, it is fairly dry to the touch. In the pipe, the sweet flavor comes through although I don’t taste much in the way of rum. This was a sample bag so it is possible that some of it dried off. While a typical sweet aromatic, I was able to taste the Burley leaf coming through offering a bit of nut. I didn’t get any chemical taste and it was ever so slightly harsh if pushed. The problem that I have with this blend is that I just want more flavor! I enjoy lighter cased aromatics but some flavorings present themselves better to me than others (like chocolate). By mid-bowl, I found myself starting to over-puff it a little bit trying to squeeze out sweeter flavor. It’s not bad, but there are simply better bulk aro’s out there. I am not sure if it is still produced, but as a bulk, I would reach for Russ Ouellette’s Butternut Burley over this every time.

This one is OK for me but not as smooth as I had hoped. Has a bit of a cigar flavor to me with light buttered rum flavor. The flavor does come through and it provides a fairly satisfying smoke. Room note probably not so great and not one I would necessarily buy again unless I find myself liking it as a mixer.

What one would expect from a OTC style bulk tobacco. No real tobacco taste and a monotone flavoring of simple rum and vanilla that comes across more as caramel. However, unlike other OTC blends, this one is not heavily cased and only a moderate top dressing. This is all well and good for.me, as I plan to add a 10% blend of latikia to this Nancy. (My version of Sutliff's Trafalgar). Blend it or smoke it this is a decent tobacco for the price.

I picked this up on a whim since it was a free sample at my local B&M and it was a newer offering from Lane and it was Lane's 1Q that got me interested in smoking a pipe in the first place.The smell in the bag was spot on and it smelled wonderful. This did not transfer well to the flavor when smoking. The cut was nice and the product was light and fluffy in the bag. It was ready to smoke as soon as i got home. I will give Lane credit for not loading this stuff up with a bunch of PG. I tried it in multiple pipes and the only one that it seemed to like was a mini taster corn cob that I had. If you are a burley lover this may be right up your alley. I just couldn't get into it at all. The other reviewer mentioned hot steam which is what I also got from it as well. The room note was excellent but the flavor fell short for me. It was a uneventful smoke which I will admit I didn't expect it to be since it seems like it is a straight burley with some flavor added.

Purest tobacco snobs probably won't like the Burley based blend much. However, I keep a couple of pounds on hand and smoke it all day long. It is liberally topped with with what I detect is butter flavoring and a bit of vanilla. The rum flavor is there, but stays in the background. It burns to a fine Ash with minimal dottle. In a cob, this stuff is bliss. Overall, I find this to be the best of Buttered Rum offerings.

The name intrigued me, so I had to give it a try as a lover of all things rum. All I can say is MEH... The cut and consistency of the tobacco makes this an easy smoke. It burns well to the bottom of the bowl with no relights and no hint on tongue burn. The casing was the let down. I didn't really pick up on the rum, the butter provided a creaminess that would work well if the rum was more apparent. If Lane uses the base tobacco with a different casing, it might be something to write home about.

This golden-brown mixture comprises a coarse-cut tangle of both heavy white and dark Burley, tussled and flanked by humbled Cavendish. Spritzed with oodles of flavoring spanning rum, butter, and plain old basic vanilla spells a festive jaunt to Candyland. With a heavy sweet pouch note that is redolent of Brach’ Butterscotch candy, honeyed zest, and muffled vanilla nuttiness, Buttered Rum promises to deliver that timeless flavor of sugary-boozy satisfaction.

Well now that the celebratory marketing trumpets have quieted, let me tell you my objective assessment. Given its name, Buttered Rum turned out to be somewhat of a conundrum so to speak. The heavy scented flavorings are showcased indeed, yet they are excessively meager and mild on noteworthy taste intensity. Honestly, I found that the presence of the rum seems to be largely missing in action. The essential flavor registration projects very subdued notes of creamy vanilla-butter, honey, and some remote brown sugary nutty zest. Even with that, it was kind of a stretch to form a consistent clear impression and believe me, I tried in several different pipes.

The mentioned pattern ostensibly lasts for about the first half of the bowl. What rises for the duration is just a basic hot-aired earthy nut/woody Burley-Cavendish flavor which isn’t necessarily bad, but it is rather uneventful given my high expectations based on the strong pouch bouquet.

Buttered Rum on the other hand burns cool and evenly producing a pleasant extended smoking experience. The vapor produced is fairly thick and velvety offering a very nice toasty sweet, buttered nuttiness to the room ambience, feasibly tolerable for even the most fastidious critic. The blend is mellowed by a smooth smoky texture as its offering casts a considerably mild relaxed encounter. With respect to any notable nicotine disturbance, I would rate this one as a mild tempered specter.

Taking a more critical look at the quality of tobacco again, it does appear to be rather thrifty is nicest way I can put it. Buttered Rum was most definitely not what I was expecting,

A bit disappointing. It suffers from losing its flavoring after about one third into the smoke. The initial flavor is nice enough: a lot of nuttiness from the burley, and sweetness from the cavendish. The texture is very nice and creamy, and I would like it ... but it just becomes disappointing too quickly, with only the burley giving some taste.

However, I decided to try mixing in a bit of Sutliff's ZBC, and this makes a huge difference. Now there is a lot of flavor throughout, and some interesting development throughout the smoke.

So, I would say: as it is, it might not be the best. But it might be well suited as a blending component for an aromatic blend. Your mileage may vary.

Very Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

This is one of the Aromatics you buy because the flavoring is modeled after something delicious in real life, suspending rational thought when you know there is no way a tobacco will ever taste as good.

The initial bag aroma is certainly sweet and with eyes closed, the brain can't tell if some fresh bakery is inside. It is some spot on buttered rum. This "coarse cut" is more of a thin fish flake affair, which I try to avoid, as these un-coarse Burley bits tend to pack densely without much airflow; burning hot. Mercifully, there wasn't a sticky topping to go with the rich aroma, so I could get smoking right away. The lt product was OK at best, having a somewhat harsh chemical aftertaste atop what was otherwise a very mild smoke. I wouldn't say the experience was horrible, but certainly there wasn't much here to warrant rebuying.

I'm a huge fan of Aromatics that are done right and have a flavorful residue when smoked. This was not the case here, giving detractors ammunition to bellitte this category.

Lanes Buttered Rum V2.0 This awesome aromatic is on my top 5 in the morning blends and absolutely love the stuff and I just ordered more because its that good. The pipe tobacco is light and smooth but packed full of flavor. I realize it is a dominant burley blend which I love even more because I am a huge fan of Carter Hall. The topping is just so good it gives off a truly buttery taste all the way down with just a hint of rum and I mean a hint which is perfect because I actually do not like rum flavored pipe tobaccos except for Sutliffs Rum&Maple which has the same velvety taste effect as Buttered Rum but not a alcohol bomb of a blend. I love putting my sniffer in the jar with this one but love even more smoking it, this blend will not bite and is low on the nicotine scale but will give you a smooth buttery and sweet smoke all the way down. I highly recommend this because its a fine aromatic and the taste is just wonderful, I just can't smoke enough of the stuff but I haft to watch it or I will kill the jar fast. Every pipe smoker has different taste buds so if you like burley you will probably like this and if you like a mellow sweet butternut taste with hints of rum then you'll probably like this. Lanes Buttered Rum is pretty cut and dry, black and white you'll either love it or you will not but its worth a shot, depending on what review you read its either praised or its not but sometimes I think the bogus reviews are just that bogus because when you smoke something and its really good and high quality then someone chimes in saying all this junk that is so far off the mark it makes me really wonder, so novice pipe smokers Go For It!!!

The rough cut Burley used in this blend as well as the sweet rum flavoring makes this a near match to P&C’s “Out of Office - Up All Night” blend. The only difference that I can determine is the slight buttery tasting element to this blend.

Judging it for what it is on it’s own merits, it’s pretty top notch. Not overly wet, packs easy, burns well and no bite. The flavor is pleasant, monotone and consistent. This is one to be considered an all day smoke that doesn’t require a lot of thought. Well done, Lane Limited.

Lane Limited - Buttered Rum.

The pouch smells sweet, and candy like. There's both ribbons and coarsely cut pieces in there, where the coarse pieces are short, flat, and fat, rather than long or twiggy. Most of these coarser pieces are a lighter brown/yellow, whereas the ribbons are a steadfast medium brown. Moisture's good.

Like the pouch-note, the smoke has more of a sweetness than alcoholic piquancy. The rum lacks sharpness, instead giving molasses, and sugar. With the creamy attribute from the butter, it tastes a little like butterscotch, maybe. The smoke has a good thickness to it, making it palpable and relaxing. The tobaccos give a bit of a ho-hum flavour, not that they're bad, just quite mundane. Buttered Rum burns well, giving cool smoke, and no bite.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: very pleasant.

A good blend, but slightly common a taste. Three stars:

Lane Limited Buttered Rum is a very nice looking golden colored rough cut tobacco with a red hue. The White Burley and Golden Cavendish appear to be high quality. I didn’t experience any tongue bite or pipe gurgle and it all smoked down to a fine ash. Moisture of the tobacco is smoke ready. Pouch note is sweet butterscotch reminiscent of Scotty’s Trout Stream.

The buttered rum flavor is very light and accompanies the natural walnut flavor of the Burley. Both flavors seem to take their turn faintly enlightening the pipe smoker’s sense of taste. The faint buttered rum flavor reminds me of Werther’s Original Hard Candies. This blend is an excellent choice for those who want a little something extra in their Burley.

It's a pleasant smoke. I got this as a free sample from another order and I've found myself coming back to this pretty consistently. Usually when I'm smoking this it's because I'm studying for a class. It doesn't take too much focus, stays lit, and is light and pleasant and buttery. I don't get too much rum which is fine for me because I don't the alcohol cased tobaccos too much. Light, pleasant, and mellow.

I'm not surprised to be the first one to review this blend, I imagine anyone else that smoked this new blend from Lane either died of bordem or has quit the hobby altogether now. Normally I like Lane's offerings, as a matter of fact I bought this in hopes it would remind me of Lane's Rum & Maple which I used to enjoy regularly, but this blend falls short even when comparing it to an often viewed mediocre blend like R&M. The online vendor I purchased this from claims this mixture is a blend of burley and VA leaf, the description above only mentions burley (and im pretty sure that's the case). And what a bitter burley it is, it's one of those "smoking hot air" experiences and as soon as you push it a bit to get a glimpse of flavour it begins to rear it's bitter and acrid personality. The leaf appears to be over conditioned as its beyond soft, but not overly moist. Even the lightest pack/tamp will seal the bowl and create a hard draw, leading to more of those bitter bites mentioned earlier. The rum note is definitely noticeable in the pouch, and you get a bit of salted caramel in the background as well, this does not transition into the pipe at all.......just bitter burley. The manufacturer claims this is a fine all-day smoke, the only time I can see that being a possibility is if I was a prisoner (in a low budget lock up) and this was my tobacco ration, at which point I think I'd switch to dried orange peels rolled in bible paper. In these days of online retailers and availability of darn near whatever we want to smoke I cannot see how new blends like these will survive criticism yet old established blends get discontinued, that logic confuses me. This tobacco must have been taste tested by monkeys prior to its release on the market as no human would consider this palatable. My only relief with this blend is that I only purchased 4 ounces and not a pound.

The burleys and golden cavendish give something akin to a light cigarette taste. There is a buttery flavour and tongue feel, and mild notes of rum throughout the bowl. This blend suffers due to the middling quality of the tobaccos, which burn too quickly, and dry far too quickly due to the cut. It's decent enough if you are looking for a mild smoke and like the taste of butterscotch. I recommend not leaving a jar around for too long. This blend tastes much better fresh.
