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,

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.
