Vauen - Zeppelin 50g
Oh, the humanity!
My first thought was that this was a tobacco that would not need to be relit. Once lit, there was no stopping it. Dark humor aside, I enjoy the German aromatics. The flavors are a bit more subtle. I will keep a couple tins to sample from time to time, but it isn't anything special.

A little moist
I found it a little moist. It stained my fingers packing it. Despite that it did not bite, but I found the flavor elusive and faint when I did find it. Not for me, but it could be for others particularly if they like Black Cav.
Sutliff - J12 - Chocolate Truffle
Aroma is great, flavor not so much. This is not a bad tobacco just not a great one.
Sutliff - Buttered Rum
It is a mild flavor, but you are rewarded if you sip the smoke.
Vauen - Bavarian Blend 50g
My Curiosity Was Rewarded
I really enjoyed this. It is almost an English Aromatic, but just across the line of aromatics. The flavors tease you through the entire burn of the bowl. Worth checking out!
Sutliff - Christmas Spice
I bought this in the Christmas spirit and tried it for the first time when I happened to be in a Grinch spirit. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor combinations. [envision Grinch's frown turning to smile]. It was full-flavored through the entire bowl even when I puffed a little too hard. Worth trying!
Newminster - No.23 Blackberry Brandy 2 oz
Make this a summer experience
Too sweet. I have canned it and will try it again in the summer.
McConnell - Code: Relax 100g
The flavor combinations really had me curious to give this a try. It will be my only tin. The flavor combinations just did not work for me. Otherwise, perfectly fine tobacco. Not too moist.
Mac Baren - Vanilla Cream 3.5oz
Did they forget the Vanilla?
I don't care for over-the-top flavorings, but I do like a bit of flavor especially when they advertise it as such. I compare it with Sutliff's Vanilla Custard and with that this tobacco is very weak.
Lane Limited - RLP-6
I tried this based on the sales rank. - I need to stop doing that! - Burns great, flavor is there, but the combination just doesn't work for me.
Lane Limited - LL-7
Worth a Try
A nice tobacco that you will really enjoy if you like the flavor combinations.
Lane Limited - Hazelnut
I'm moving away from aromatics, but I do love Hazelnut so gave this a try. I'm disappointed in the lack of flavor. I really had to work hard to get it. Burns nice and everything just not what I was hoping for flavor wise.
John Aylesbury - Dragon Blend 100g
Fun, but nothing special
You should try this if you are interested in the flavor combinations. It is a nice tobacco, but not a great one.
Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Considering the reviews I tried this out. I did not find the taste to be at the level advertised. It burned fine and don't really have too many complaints about the tobacco itself except for the flavor.
Sillem's - Councilor 1695 50g
I think everyone who enjoys the Virginia/Perique should sample this. It is now in my rotation.
Sillem's - Mayor 1814 Flake 50g
Flake with a touch of flavor
Much like the Sillem's Black approach here is a flake that sets it apart from the rest with a slight touch of flavor. The honey and orange combination works so well with this Virginia.
Sillem's - Black 100g
English with a very light touch of flavor
With so many English blends to choose from here is one that uses just the slightest bit of flavor to set it apart. Great for someone who primarily smokes English blends and wants something a little different that is not a full aromatic.Also a nice starter for beginners looking to shift from aromatics to more English.
John Aylesbury - Edition 2018 100g
Wonderful blend and flavors
A nice aromatic. Full flavored without being over-the-top. Flavor was there through the entire bowl.
Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
Maybe my Expectations Were Too High
Considering the reviews and sales rank I thought this tobacco couldn't miss. It does tingle the tongue if you are not paying attention. I did not find it to be particularly flavorful for some reason. I think I will select another tobacco next time instead of reordering this.
Sutliff - SPS-2013 Zurich Delight
Good but not Great
It smelled fantastic, but the flavor doesn't quite match. It was a nice easy smoke. Not too wet and it did not bite.
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Very Good If Careful
As others have mentioned this blend is very wet. I got careless and smoked it kinda quickly and it got hot. That ruined the flavor. When I let it cool there was indeed a nice flavor bomb. It is a nice blend if you are careful. Not much margin for error.
Sillem's - Linea Epoque Antique 3.5oz
Smooth and Easy with Nice Flavors
This is added to my favorites. Have started a collection of this tobacco. It is a smooth tobacco and the flavors are there, but no one flavor really outmatches the other. They are all in compliment to one another. Worth a try.
Newminster - No.23 Blackberry Brandy 2 oz
Nice flavorful tobacco
I realized after my second smoke that I just don't care for the blackberry/brandy flavor, but that is on me not Newminster. The tobacco has a smooth smokey burn. I tended to puff on it too quickly, but never got tongue bite. If you think you would enjoy this flavor then you should definitely try it out.
Sillem's - European Blend: Copenhagen 50g
Sometimes I think I'm smoking an English, but then the subtle hint of Amaretto tickles your nose. The perique level seems to be set perfectly. An easy and delightful smoke. Moisture level is perfect.
Sillem's - Blue 100g
Nice subtle flavors. It doesn't overpower, but the flavor is there if you sip it. Nice experience.
Sutliff - Z92 Vanilla Custard
Added to my Favorites
Terrific all around. Not too moist, nice smoke and nice flavor without being overpowering. Another review mentioned this is a good one for beginners. I wholeheartedly agree.
Sillem's - Red 100g
Great aroma and flavor
I enjoy smelling this tobacco in the tin almost as much as smoking it. Great flavors, but not overpowering.
Sillem's - Green 100g
A delightful smoke. I enjoy most of Sillem’s tobacco and this is one of my favorites.
