I recently purchased a Castello Sea Rock (G)(Estate: Unsmoked). I decided to include a tin of Castello Sea Rock tobacco. What a dynamic combination although I'm sure this delicious tobacco would enhance any pipe! As soon as I opened the tin, an aroma... Read More of chocolate-mocha permeated the room. Simply delicious! Smooth and medium-full; not-too-moist and not-too-dry. And if you add a cup of freshly-brewed dunkin donuts coffee, how can you go wrong!? Read Less
I too am a Non-secular smoker. And have a number of great aged, and not so aged tobaccos in my stash.
This blend has been a revelation.
An aro/blend that has become my 'every occasion' smoke.
It satisfies, it is appreciated by all and is neither sw... Read Moreeet nor tobacco'y.

Sweet start bitter ending. This is my usual thought on this tobacco when I smoke it. It smells delicious in the tin, a deep smell of almonds, warm bread, subtle vanilla notes, and a background of mabe chocolate cake. as the title states, its like war... Read Morem fruitcake, but not overly sweet smell like other aromatics. The smoke itself is very smooth, I remember the first time I lighted up, I immeditely was hit by the nutty flavor, no sharp synthetic sweetness (which I despise), and genrally you do get a bready, nutty, creamy smoke throughout the first half of the bowl. The second half is where it looses its shine, it can become harsh, almost acrid at times. I believe this is more to due with the fact that the blend does leave quite a bit of dottle and changes the last 1/4 to 1/2 of the bowl. It is a very good tasting blend however and not something that has stopped me from smoking it, bu tfor a longer smoother smoke, I packa small amount of sutliff J4 then this over it, which nullifies the effect and tames the harshness. The aroma of Old World, lol, is thus: Picture yourself in FRodo Baggin's home, he is cooking sweetbread in his hobbit oven, and pulls out elven sweet bread, that instantly makes you hungry once again and each bite reminds you of home, friends, and peace. It, in short, has a wonderful aroma that is sure to please all; as a friend once told me "it smells like good stuff", indescribable, but inevitably pleasant.
I hope this helps, give it a try; its not a complex blend, rather a good smoke to have when you need a change, but you dont want a fake tasting aromatic tobacco. Read Less
I'm what a Non-secular smoker. I smoke what I like and don't mind expressing my opinion as I see it.This is a good aro. Probably in my top 5 as it has some fine base tobaccos and delivers a good amount of topping flavour without being overwhelming.... Read More
