After 5 years, I opened up the tub it has been stored in, and the aroma is delightful. It was somewhat dry, so I placed some fresh thin sliced apple peel with a bit of apple flesh, and sealed it again for 2 weeks. Now it is perfectly moist but not at... Read More all a wet smoke.

As others have said, this blend will bite you if you smoke it straight out of the tin. I cellared a tin for five years and was blown away by how tasty it had become. The VA's became sweeter, burned cooler, and the vanilla case-note mellowed out an... Read Mored was not as cloying, but still ever present.
(I know cellaring aromatics goes against conventional wisdom. However, this is a straight VA leaf that's cased.) Read Less
It’s good quality Virginia tobacco with a bit of vanilla, not much though. I didn’t get the burning everyone talked about, smoked cool, stayed lit, and wasn’t overly moist in the tin. If your looking for big vanilla flavor though, this isn’t what yo... Read Moreu’re looking for. Wouldn’t throw it out, will definitely smoke it all, but if I’m looking for a vanilla tobacco, I wouldn’t buy this again.
I guess maybe my expectations changed when I smoke it now and I’m starting to really enjoy it, I’ll probably buy this again. Raised the score from 3 up to a 4. Read Less
I'm not an aromatic fan, but DTM makes some of the better aros in the European style of aromatics, which is less applied flavor with greater focus on leaf nuance. Fresh, the invert sugar adds considerably more sweetness to compliment the grassy and ... Read Moreslightly woody VA, but this will eventually evaporate and result in less sweetness. The vanilla is barley present, but still offers a bit of vanilla bean here and there. I get more tobacco flavor from this vanilla topped blend than the horribly comprised concoctions of Sutliff. Contrary to some, this has never bit me. It's mild in nicotine at 1 out of 5. Read Less
Nice aromatic, with an incredible room note. It got me time to get used to it and avoid the biting, but now I can say that I enjoy it. Anyway, it seems to me that I get more of the honey taste than the vanilla .
This is a great vanilla blend. The tin aroma smell like real vanilla. And the flavor transfers through to the smoke. The vanilla flavor stayed through to the end. Don't push this blend though, because it will bite and lose its flavor when too hot. Sl... Read Moreowly smoke/sip it. Read Less
I am mainly a smoker of aromatics. Not matter what I try with this I cannot enjoy it. Vanilla? Where? Honeydew? Where? All I taste is burning. I try and smoke it slow but this just torches my mouth. The tobacco is high quality but the experience is n... Read Moreot. Room note is the peasant but the mouth feel is thin and tasteless. Like smoking hot air. Got a lot of gurgling and a sour taste at the end and I still have a third of the bowl left. Even when I try and back off and let it cool down a bit the bowl of my pipe remains hot to the touch.

This is my favorite aromatic for long term cellaring. People always say not to bother cellaring aromatics but I have a 12 year old tin that I tried when new and it was nice but I mason jarred the rest and forgot about it. I recently reopened it to ... Read Morediscover the natural virginia sweetness shining through and the vanilla & honey flavor subdued but very pleasant. If you like heavy aromatics this won't be for you but if you are looking for a light aromatic that still lets the tobacco flavor come through check this one out. Like most VA blends it can bite if rushed so take it slow and easy. Read Less
Generally do not smoke aromatics, but I'm not against them either.
This one, it's worth a try. The room note is simply enchanting. Folks will flock to the aroma.
For the smoker, there is still a hint of real tobacco back there, and some nicotine f... Read Moreor you. It does tend to be dry in the tin and it does tend to burn hot so you'll need to slow down a bit. It's light and clean, burns to a nice ash. Surprisingly for as sweet as it is, it doesn't leave much of a ghost.
I don't smoke it often, but when I do I thoroughly enjoy it. Sometimes on a warm summer evening with a glass of sweet tea, this is just the ticket. Also, when pleasing those around you is of import, it's a rabbit in the hat, even the most adamant anti-smoker will be drawn to the scent. Read Less
This is my second favorite aromatic. Well, I only smoke two aromatic tobaccos so I guess that's a compliment worth having. My wife always compliments the room note when I smoke this one. Vanilla over a sweet, almost melon like flavor; the name doesn'... Read Moret disappoint. Read Less
