Previously known as an A&C Peterson blend, No.150 Mark Twain now flies under the Sutliff banner. A Danish-style aromatic, this mix of black Cavendish, Burley, and Virginia is known for its creamy aromatic flavors and mellow strength, making for an easy smoke and a pleasing room note.

As a huge Mark Twain fan, I was searching for a blend that was of Samuel Clemens taste when I ran across this tobacco. Needless to say I bought an ounce simply out of curiosity.

Very well done mixture of sweet Virginia along with the heavy, thicker smoke producing of the Dark Cavendish. This blend even smells great right out of the jar. The taste is smooth but strangely bold. I had to have more so I bought a whole pound so that it would ferment in a larger jar. The Virginia grows sweeter with age, so the longer you can age this stuff the better it gets. Highly recommend this mixture for a late night relax on the porch. You will not be disappointed.

I might seem curmudgeonly on this one. I admit I am not a fan of aromatics, but every several months in my rotations I return to them to sample a few blends. And I had to buy a couple of ounces of this one, simply for its name. 3.5 stars. Read Less

I finded perfect for me. This aromatic tobacco is not sticky and its very fresh. Soft flavor and burns very well. Very interesting. I pretty sure that this tobacco will be part of mi cellar for long time!.
Love the aroma unlit. Burns to a fine dry powder. Not harsh or hit burning. Not as much flavor as aroma. Might be able to tone down a sweet blend with it? Want to smoke a few more bowls before I pass judgement.

I'll admit, I got it because I'm a Twain fan and because of the overall good reviews.
Its not a strong blend. It has a good mild taste and is an easy smoke.
Tasted much better after jarring for a few weeks.
Most enjoyable blend.Smooth and consistent all the way to the end with no surprises as in where's the taste I started out with. Great taste and aroma.Almost let back into the house with this one.Highly recommended.Will buy lots more.

It's actually fitting that this will be my first review here: This was the first aromatic blend that I bought for myself at a local pipe shop some 20 years ago when I started smoking. Out of the collection of jars (some maintained better than other... Read Mores) this one seemed to get heavy traffic (at least the jar was one of the cleanist) and I really fell in love with the smell and the look of the cut immediately. Still can't really put my finger on it.. Nutty, Bourbony.. hint of cherry cordial and caramel.. hmm. Very mild danish- I should warn that it has a sidestream smell that may have some odd notes from time to time, though maybe that's just me. It's still, for me, a cut above many of the other comparable bulkblends- a true jewel in the sutliff cap. Anywho, I'd forgotten all about it for years and years under other more prominant blends until I wandered into a pipe store that ended up being a place that had been opened by a former employee of that same former store!
