Newminster - No.403 Superior Round Slices
Orlik in bulk
I happen to enjoy Orlik dark fired strong Kentucky. This is every bit as good, maybe better! It’s sold in bulk at a very affordable price. It can be rubbed out, or the coins can be folded over and packed in your bowl. This is sweet, savory, smoky and just plain good. I highly recommend it... just don’t buy it all up
Sutliff - Maple Street 1.5oz
Best maple aromatic
This is an aromatic, except it’s not goopy, it burns cool, and it doesn’t bite. This tastes wonderful, this smells wonderful, and what is that taste other then maple deliciousness? Oh it’s fine quality tobacco. I’ve tried Boswell, I’ve tried Autumn Evening, I’ve tried a lot of maple aromatics. This is by far the best! Wish it came in bulk. You like maple? You like quality tobacco flavor? Don’t like tongue bite? Not into gooey tobacco? Smoke some Maple Street! I dare you. You will be glad you did.
Peterson - Sweet Killarney 50g
Good sweet nic hit
It always amazes me when people review a blatantly aromatic tobacco and give it a low rating because they don’t like aromatics. This is an aromatic! And it’s a very good one at that. It is sweet, it smells wonderful, and if smoked correctly it doesn’t bite or burn overly hot. It’s not goopy, and burns to nice white ash. This does seem to be fairly strong in the nicotine department, especially for an aromatic. I’ve never had it ghost a briar or a cob. However, I use a pipe sweetener/ cleaner on a pipe cleaner after I smoke anything. If you want a nice sweet aromatic and want to still savor the flavor of the tobacco( which is high quality) I would recommend this blend.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
Sweet and relaxing
I really enjoyed this tobacco. It is high quality.It burned thoroughly and extremely cool. Never did I get any bite, even when puffing hard. It started out sweet and stayed that way until the end. It left me disappointed that the bowl was empty and I wanted more. It has a fruit sweetness but I can’t really say that it tastes like any particular type of fruit. The tobacco flavors came through without any artificial taste. It wasn’t goopy at all. It was perfect right from the tin. This will be something that I keep around and smoke a lot of. The price is decent and I enjoy it very much. Many people say it has a strong nic hit, but I never really noticed it like I have with some other blends (Old Joe Krantz).
Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
Wasn’t a favorite
I enjoy aromatics. I had read the reviews and saw that everyone ranted and raved about this blend. I tried it and found it burned leaving an acrid taste in my mouth and gave me hiccups. I ended up giving the tin away. Many people really like it, but I am not a fan. Many better aromatics out there. But hey, we all are entitled to our opinions, our likes and dislikes. This just didn’t taste good to me. I like cavendish, I like maple, I like brown sugar. Just not this blend
Lane Limited - BCA
Mild sweet smoke
This is a very mild, not heavily cased or goopy aromatic. It burns cool and sweet without bite. It hardly seems to need a relight and has a wonderful room note. I started with 4 Oz of this to try it. The next week I bought 8oz more. If you like aromatics this is a winner! You definitely won’t be disappointed. If you prefer the smell and taste of bonfire smoke and burnt leather, this won’t be pleasing to your palate.
Sutliff - Blacksburg
This has been one of my favorite sutliff blends so far. It is a tobacco for those who enjoy a subtle sweet aromatic. It has no bite, burns well and keeps its flavor. It has a taste, and aroma of raisins, figs, and dried plums. This will be in my rotation from now on.
