It is perhaps ironic that a blend named Great Outdoors should be appreciated for its room note. Room note aside, most any sportsman will find this Sutliff Aromatic Mixture of Burley, Virginia and Black Cavendish to be good company when outside. The perfect companion, in fact, for snowy winter days, for warm spring nights, for lazy summer mornings, and for crisp, splendidly colored autumn afternoons.
First I "Luv" Sutliff blends, such as Maple-Walnut(MW) and Rum&Maple(R&M), so when Sutliff Private Stock blends went on sale I grabbed some.

The topping burned off quickly, leaving me an almost pure tobacco smoke. It makes for a great "Change of Pace" from MW and R&M, well worth adding to my rotation. Lastly "She" said it was pleasant smelling. Read Less
I found very little special about this blend. Could make a good hand rolled cigarette but it makes for so-so pipe tobacco. It’s just not very interesting or particularly enjoyable. Not even enough for me to finish this rev...
This blend has a bold taste of vanilla and anise, almost like candy but without being sickly sweet. It almost tastes like a gourmet version of Mixture no. 79 (which I like).

This is a good, simple, straight forward, burley blend, the casing is used with discretion and offers some to the overall profile but does not make the tobacco overly moist or goopy. It certainly has that character of the old classic drug store blend... Read Mores of yesteryear but would be " top shelf". I purchased the tin because it was on a very low price clearence but have found that I have returned to it on several occasions because it is so comfortable.
Upon opening the tin you are rewarded with the sweet aroma of the topping and the tobacco, the cut is somewhat coarse and chunky. If were not for the diameter of the tin being too small the blend would certainly invite thrust and pack method of loading the pipe and I found this to work very well when the tobacco was tranfered to a pouch.
The initial light does offer some sweetness but is not too sweet, as you progress in the smoke the sweetness does give way to, as others have noted, a peppery experience. Not bad! Not overly complex, and by no means hot. Just very comfortable.
The nic hit seems to be somewhat minimal.
The room note is pleasent enough, I heard no complaints but I also had no real compliments either.
I would say that even though I have returned to this current tin often enough. recently reordered Read Less
