Mac Baren - Club Blend 3.5oz
Pretty straightforward
A little peppery and fairly light and sweet. Nice on a fall day. The rolls themselves are nicely sized and are very easy to rub out and fill with as they hold just the right amount of moisture. It’s very easy to light and once lit it does not require many re-lights. It really is pleasurable indeed!

Peterson - Sherlock Holmes 50g
This one works for me
An all day mixture that produces a decent volume of smoke. This is a nice vintage blend of mello Burley and VA with subtle sweet flavors.

Peterson - Royal Yacht 50g
An all-time classic
It is outstanding. RY is my favorite blend, and the perfect way to start each day. If you enjoy true tobacco taste then you will enjoy this powerful blend. It can be smoked all day with no fatigue or tongue bite. The topping is a little citrusy with a few raisin, fig, and very obvious plum notes.

Savinelli - Essenza Cipriota 100g
No bite or harshness
The Virginias and I believe the Macedonian leaf seems to take the lead in this blend with the Latakia adding a pleasant non-typical smokiness. I could easily see this as an all-day blend, leaving the heavy artillery for night smoking. The room note is really nice and the flavour is simple and easy going.

Two Friends - English Chocolate 2oz
An all day smoke
Burns clean, cool, oodry and slightly slow with a very consistent, mildly sweet and lightly savory flavor. The Virginias are smooth as silk, the Latakia becomes a true condiment, and the chocolate is very sweetly subtle. This is a great tasting smoke. I have no problem giving this a full recommendation.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
I like it
It had a taste similar to sweet maple since it has in it maple, sugar, rum, vanilla,citrus flavors, and whisky. This one is probably as close to perfection as there is in an aromatic. Burns cool, clean and smooth with a fairly consistent taste. If you love aromatics, this one needs to be part of your next order.

Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Wonderful cherry aromatic
This is in my opinion a perfectly balanced blend of flavors. I'm impressed. An all day smoke. The room note is absolutely amazing, and unlike most aromatics I've smoked, you taste cherry and chocolate. I think everyone should try this at least once; the best cherry blend ever.

Davidoff - Danish Mixture 50g
Very impressed
The Virginia shines under what I feel is a subtle aromatic. The tin note is fairly sweet, with a light honey and fermented fruit aroma. I enjoy smoking this when I am in the mood for something mild with a slightly enhanced flavor.The room note is old-fashioned slightly sweet maple, but not heavy at all, and dissipates quickly.

Warped - Scarecrow 2oz
Highly recommended
Sweet, fruity, sharp. The kake isn't too damp, I easily crumble, load, light, smoke. The tobaccos are more Cavendish, without being too heavy or sticky. A great aromatic.

Ashton - Artisan's Blend 50g
The Royal
A lovley blend for the winter, especially for those of you who like complex and spicey blends. There are a lot of very nice, rich flavors, which all muddle superbly to make a balanced blend.
