Sutliff - Molto Dolce 1.5oz
Very Sweet.
This is the epitome, or apotheosis, of the goopy, overly-sweet aromatic. Why am I giving it four stars, then? It is unique. The flavor and topping are unique, and it is an ├╝ber-aromatic. Open the tin. When I opened mine, the scent hung around on my shirt while I took a nap, and when I woke up, it was still there. Even my fingers smell when I have worked with this tobacco, a couple of days later. I get a bit of coconut from the scent, and a lot of vanilla and caramel. Don't bother trying to dry it out; it will not dry out (sure, probably after hours or a day), unless you were to put it in the microwave, though I would not recommend that. Changes the taste in a negative way. It's the best of the goopy, overly-sweet aromatics that I have tried at least. It has a smell that is pervasive; it just won't go away. Tastes nice in the pipe, and even though it will never dry out, burns in an acceptable way. It's a weird animal; one that is always clawing at your face, though in a very sweet way. That's what Molto Dolce means in Italian; very sweet, and it is. It clings to your shirt, fingers, or God knows whatever other parts. Every pipe smoker should try this, even if only once. It is a unique experience. It actually doesn't seem to ghost a pipe too much once it burns up; just make sure it is a pipe you smoke aromatics or topped blends out of. Do not smoke it in a pipe dedicated to unscented Virginia Flakes or VAPERs. The taste is less overwhelming than the tin smell, and how it clings to you.

Sutliff - Molto Dolce 1.5oz
Vey Sweet!
This is the epitome, or apotheosis, of the goopy, overly sweet aromatics. Why am I giving it three-and-one-half stars, then? It is unique. The flavor and topping are unique, though it is an uber-aromatic. Open the tin. When I opened mine, the scent hung around on my shirt while I took a nap, and whenever I woke up, it was still there. Even my fingers smell when I have worked with this tobacco, a couple of days later. I get a lot of coconut from the smell, and a lot of vanilla and caramel. Don't bother trying to dry it out; it will not dry out, unless you were to put it in the microwave, though I would not recommend that. Changes the taste in a negative way. It's the best of the goopy, overly-sweet aromatics. It has a smell that is pervasive; it just won't go away. Tastes nice in the pipe, and even though it will never dry out, burns acceptively. It's a weird animal; one who is always clawing at your face, though in a very sweet way. That's what Molto Dolce means in Italian; very sweet, and it is. It clings to your shirt, fingers, or God knows whatever other parts. Every pipe smoker should try this, even if only once. It is a unique experience.

Sillem's - European Blend: Copenhagen 50g
Very Nice Danish Aromatic
Had a tin of this in my collection from 2012, and looked up the reviews to see what folks were saying about it. Thought, well, haven't had a good aromatic in a while, and a good aromatic it is. Can't really add much to what others have said; smells goopy and overpowering in the tin but smokes lovely and one can still taste the quality tobacco, etc. Don't smoke many aromatics, but this one I would buy again. Lovely flavor, and not overdone. 11-9-2022 Well, my last pipe of this, in the Marxman Jumbo, and I will miss it. Might buy it again if I see it for a reasonable price, but you know; there are other quality Danish Aromatics. The Danes get aromatics right.
