CAO - Bella Vanilla 50g
When I opened this tin, it didn't smell at all like vanilla. When I actually smoked it, it was even less vanilla tasting. Now, on that note, this is not a bad tobacco. It smokes quite smoothly and has a decent mild taste. I just feel as though calling this tobacco a vanilla flavor is just not right. If you truly want the vanilla taste, stick with something like Stanwell
Borkum Riff - Black Cavendish 1.5oz
Black cavendish is my favorite tobacco in a good mixture. The only problem with that is I have become picky with the mixtures. I found this mixture is good but I felt I expected more than just the basic flavor this gave me. On another note, it burns consistently with little to no tongue bite. Room note was not anything amazing but was still very pleasant
Reiner - Yellow Label- Rum/Vanilla 50g
This is a very nice blend. Great room note and no tongue bite. Burns very evenly and has a good draw. The overall flavour is just a very mild cavendish,nothing more. Maybe this is what Reiner was going for when they made this blend, a mild tobacco is usually nice. The problem here is that the title makes you expect more
Captain Black - Cherry 1.5oz
This tobacco was amazing from the minute I opened the package to the bottom of the bowl. The roomnote was fantastic and the smoke was very smooth and delicious. If you are an aromatic fan, this is a must have.
Solani - Tropical Mango Flake-639 50g
This was my first tin of flake cut tobacco. The roomnote is very nice. I am still working on being consistent with packing and I have been experimenting with a few different methods. The flavor is nice and mild and a nice change from a lot of the similar aromatic flavors that come with most other flavours. I prefer a stronger flavor than this myself but it is very nice
Cornell & Diehl - Green River Vanilla 2oz
The roomnote of this tobacco is very nice. This packs easy and burns evenly. The flavour is very nice, but for me it is a little bit too mild. I often smoke the Stanwell Vanilla which is a much stronger blend. This aromatic would be really good for someone who doesnt like strong flavor but would like to venture into the realm of aromatics
Nording - Hunter Blend: Labrador 50g
This tobacco has a fantastic roomnote. The only thing that had me a little bit dissapointed was that the flavour is not as obvious as the aroma would make you think. I found it to be quite a bit more mild than expected. Still has a very good taste and smokes very nicely.
Sutliff - A Taste of Summer 1.5oz
This tobacco is great. I couldnt find anything wrong with it. Nice roomnote, burns great, tastes wonderful, no tongue bite, just a great tobacco
McClelland - Premium: Tastemaster 50g
The roomnote of this tobacco is amazing. I really enjoy strong aromatics so this was an obvious winner for me. Due to the smell I expected the flavor to be a little bit stronger then it turned out to be, but the flavor was still quite fantastic.
Mac Baren - Modern Virginia Loose Cut 100g
This tobacco is a really smooth smoke. it has a subtle enjoyable flavour and i wasn't expecting it to be near as good as it was. I found the first half of the bowl tasted better but it got a little bit more just smokey closer to the end and lost the flavour. Still a great tobacco
Brigham - Ripley Ave 50g
This tobacco has a really nice roomnote. It packs well and smokes so smooth. The flavour is kind of mild and i was hoping for a bit of a stronger flavour, but it is still very enjoyable.
Sutliff - Maple Street 1.5oz
When I opened this tin and breathed it in the aroma was fantastic, reminding me of the smell of maple syrup that I would smell when my mother made pancakes when I was young. The roomnote is fantastic! When I smoked it the flavour seemed to be just a little bit lacking compared to the smell (which is nothing new for Sutliff Private Stock) but it is a very smooth and pleasant smoke. I do enjoy it!
Sutliff - Honey & Chocolate 1.5oz
The smell of this tobacco is very nice, The roomnote is quite pleasant. Unfortunately when i smoked it I was slightly dissapointed only because I was hoping for the flavours to be a little bit stronger. Some drags had very nice flavour in them but more than not most drags just tasted like any other tobacco. So this one is nothing special but still a nice tobacco.
Stanwell - Melange 50g
I tried the Stanwell Vanilla before this so I bought this with high hopes. The roomnote is really nice and really reminded me of butterscotch. when burning the smell was still pleasant and the taste was nice but it was a little bit more subtle than I was expecting. I enjoy this tobacco but i was hoping for a bit of a stronger flavour.
Captain Black - Premium Edition Red Sky 1.75oz
I used to smoke Captain Black cigars and even though they are well known for their aroma, they usually didn't have much taste. When I first opened this tin the aroma was fantastic. I lit my bowl and was getting the same sort of taste like the cigars. But once it began to burn more evenly the cherry flavour started to come through more and more. The taste eventually came and it was really great, a very well mixed blend. The room note is definitely Captain Black worthy and getting a quick wiff of it with every drag on the pipe just added to the experience. This turned out to be a great tobacco.
Stanwell - Vanilla 50g
This aromatic is the best tobacco I've ever smoked. the room note is amazing and sweet, the flavour is just as sweet and very very smooth. No tongue bight whatsoever. it's just an amazing tobacco!
Ashton - Smooth Sailing 50g
Name Doesn't Lie
The name of this tobacco doesn't lie, it is a very smooth smoke. Has a very nice taste that isn't too strong but very noticable and delightful. Barely any tongue bite to this tobacco. It's a nice aromatic, this will definitely be one of my regulars.
CAO - Eileen's Dream 50g
I found this tobacco to have a good smelling room note and taste. the problem was that both the room note and taste or extremely subtle. Even with a really good even light there was not much flavour and the room note was very faint. I found to get occasional bite as well. It's an ok tobacco but i found it bland for an aromatic.
Peterson - Irish Whiskey 50g
This is the first tobacco I ever owned. I'm fairly new to pipe smoking but personally i wasn't a big fan of this one. I found the room note to be tolerable but not that great. A great thing about it is that it is very easy to light and keep lit throughout the whole bowl. The whiskey flavour is almost non-existent to me which was rather dissapointing.
