I avoid aromatics simply because you never know what chemicals may be used...when I read this was a Virginia, Burley, Cavendish blend with Frangelico and Irish Mist, along with the positive reviews I bought 4 oz to try. The initial taste was deliciou... Read Mores, the subtle hint of whiskey and honey hits the tongue. Combined with a good tobacco blend, I was completely surprised how much I liked this. Toward the bottom of the bowl, the flavors settled and notes of Burley and Cavendish took over. This is not something I will smoke often, but on occasion, this is a great change from a proper English diet. Fine smoke here. Read Less
The blend smells nutty, a bit like a syrup for flavoring coffee.
The burley is nutty, and the hazelnut flavoring makes this taste even nuttier. The specific hazelnut flavor is very prevalent on the retrohale, while the smoke has more of a general nu...

I had high hopes for this blend, especially after smelling it in the bag. Sometimes, that's the kiss of death.
The blend never lived up to my expectations. The first few puffs were great, but like so many aromatics, the flavoring quickly fades and... Read More you're left with mid-to-low grade leaf. Read Less
As a two-week beginning smoker myself, I found the aroma upon opening absolutely amazing. It's like walking into a coffee shop and ordering a cup of caramel, hazelnut, vanilla creamer for a strong blend of coffee. This tobacco smell so good I just wa... Read Morent to open the jar and let the aroma fill the room right by itself. As a virgin pilot that I have for being only a two-week smoker, I find the smoking of this tobacco really needs to be very slow for those new pipe smokers if you smoke this too fast it will bite you and it will be harsh. I have found for me if I take my time and slowly sip like a fine wine or like you was drinking hot coffee the characteristics and flavors of this blend really come out very nicely nicely. Read Less
Una suave y placentera mezcla. El toque de Frangelico va excelente con el sabor del whiskey, produciendo un suave humo con aroma que se disfruta en cada bocanada. Sin duda la recomiendo a los amantes de los aromáticos.
I wasn't super impressed by this one. As most Cornell & Diehl, it packed/smoked/burned well. Minimal dottle at the end of the bowl. I didn't get much nutty flavor at any part during the bowl. I got what seemed to be a slight hazelnut flavor. ... Read More I did catch some Whiskey every so often, but it wasn't very pleasant. It didn't lose it's flavor throughout the bowl, however there wasn't a very distinct flavor at any point for me. Read Less
As with all C&D blends, the quality of the tobacco is very high. It is light and mild smoke and because of this the Virginias offer a hint of grassy flavor. The Burley is not detectable, but it undoubtedly adds to the light hazelnut flavor. It burns... Read More well and leaves a nice dry ash at the bottom of the bowl. Ultimately though, there is not enough of the nutty flavor, yet still enough to mask the the natural tobaccos (as is the case with most aromatics). As a previous reviewer noted, taking your time is necessary to appreciate the subtlety of the flavoring, and this is also when the Virginias tend to come through. This is not a bad blend, it is just unexceptional and underwhelming compared to aromatics like Autumn Evening or Dan's Blue Note. Recommended for aromatic smokers who appreciate a good quality tobacco, and especially recommend for those breaking in a new aromatic pipe without the leaving a condensed PG taste in the bottom of the bowl or ghosting it during the break-in process.

This was one of my very first tobaccos back in 1993 and has been in the rotation ever since. Like most pipe smokers I enjoy experimenting with and continue my quest to find the perfect blend, but sometimes its just good to go back and enjoy the comfo... Read Morerts of home. It is a outstanding smoke when dried for an hour or two, loaded ultra loosed and sipped slow. Unlike other aromatics it doesn't loose its flavor at the halfway point, retrohale with a gentle tongue smack and you'll chase the taste as far down the bowl as you want to go. I think the reason this blend doesn't rate higher is because people haven't taken the time to figure out its smoke characteristics. You really have to go slow with this one, it will reward you when you do. Read Less
The description of this blend sounded pretty awesome and the pouch / tin note smelled fantastic. However, the flavor while smoking left much to be desired in my opinion. I really didn't get any flavor at all from this tobacco except a very slight s... Read Moreweetness at the beginning of the bowl. Based on the look of the leaf in the pouch and what I researched on Tobacco Reviews online, it seems this blend is mostly burley. Burley's always knock me for a loop with nicotine and at the end of the bowl my head was swimming. As usual I will always try a tobacco in a couple different pipes, so perhaps I just need to try it in a different pipe. I wouldn't say this blend is bad, I was just hoping for something different. I imagine if you like burley's, you may like this blend. Read Less
