I smoke aromatics mostly (I prefer cigars for real tobacco taste). So I was looking for a strong room note with a good taste. This was it! Smells great taste sweet but I can still taste the tobacco. And it burned PERFECTLY right out of the bag!

I am not an expert, but I am smoking pipes since 2005. This is my first vanilla tobacco and I like it a lot. Easy to lit, taste is good, smell in my office is pleasant. I think I will order more of that in the future.

Sutliff continues to be my go-to with this flavor. Very strong delightful flavor and smell. I keep a separate jar to mix with sunset rum by sutliff. They pair wonderfully but this is definitely tops and always on the reorder
Wow! I should have wrote this review ages ago. I first discovered Vanilla Custard a few years ago while I was on an wintertime-fueled aromatic kick. This great Sutliff blend is by far the best tasting vanilla tobacco I've ever tried. To put that in p... Read Moreerspective here's a list of some others I've had: Captain Black Royal, Lane 1Q, Mac Baren Vanilla Cream, C'est La Vie, and Sutliff's own 1M. All good vanilla blends, sure, but Vanilla Custard ramps things up a notch. Tin note: vanilla (from across the room), color of ribbon: vanilla (a nice golden brown), taste: vanilla and then some! Vanilla Custard is aptly named. You're not just getting a generic vanilla taste, you get the whole taste of a rich creamy dessert akin to, well, Custard. Think vanilla gelato, or pudding...maybe even a slight eggnog flavor (nutmeg?). Creamy and rich all around. As for it's smoking properties I have to say it fairs far better than many aromatics. It has strong flavor but it is not artificial tasting vanilla. It has a consistent flavor that weakens, but never quite goes away throughout the bowl. It is somewhat moist but doesn't turn to steam the minute you put a match to it like so many others. It will leave your bowl with a bit of moisture and I can't warn you enough how this will ghost even a cob. And, as you would expect, with a flavoring like this you wont get much natural tobacco flavors. This is a Cavendish for when you want pure vanilla flavor and a room note to match! Enjoy. Read Less
A friend gave me some of this to sample, and I ordered it. We were smoking on my porch. I am not much of a vanilla fan, but when it comes to smoking it, something is different. I like it that way.

The question: can Vanilla spoil and become rancid?
The answer: apparently so, based upon this blend.
I'll put it this way, I'm prone to storing the Bag either in a far corner of the house OR out in the garage.
Let me begin with the Positive: at som... Read Moree 8 ounces in to this 16 oz. bag, I conclude that the lit flavor is pretty good; that is, as the smoke connects with the tastebuds.
The aroma from the bag is horrible.
The aroma as it hangs in the air (the smoke), also horrible.
Handling of this tobacco instantly stains your fingers and leaves the them feeling like they've been dipped in Molasses.
Separating myself from the noted negatives, I have to admit that the Taste is pretty good. Put another way, I'm over my inclination to throw in the towel and buy a carton of Camel Filters—an obsessive thought, which plagued me during the first week of this smoke.
Thankfully, I see that my old standby, Peter Stokkebye Vanilla Creme is once again, IN STOCK. I should have known when noting the word, CUSTARD, in the blend name, that this would not end well. Read Less

Sutliff did an outstanding job creating this tobacco. It is my favorite aromatic and is my daily smoke. It takes an initiall light well, does not bite and leaves just a little moisture in the bottom of the bowl.

This is one of four tobaccos that I keep at least a pound on hand at all times. It’s a regular in the rotation. It can have a little mild bite but nothing that can’t be handled by slowing down just a hair.

I will most likely cut this with some Nutty Irishman to lower the sweetness. It's not bad. Tastes like wedding cake, butter frosting.
