For their Green River Vanilla, the folks at C&D took Burley from the Green River Valley of Kentucky, fire cured and expertly blended it to be mellow and smooth, and flavored it with an outstanding vanilla.
This, without a doubt, is the goopiest, moistest tobacco I have ever encountered. That said, I'm an impatient fellow and loaded the black slop into my pipe without drying. Surprisingly, it burned just fine with very little steam or goop in my pipe! I... Read Moret actually smoked incredibly dry and cool for how wet it was, and it produced the most smoke I've ever gotten from any tobacco. Literally clouds of white, flavorful smoke. The vanilla is present but lets the flavor of the burley tobacco shine. This is a hit for me. Read Less
A nice aroma and a mild smoke, I smoke 10 different vanilla tobaccos, but this is the one I smoke the most. It can be over moist, so I usually let a quantity dry out for a day, before I use it. I buy it by the pound. If you like vanillas give this on... Read Moree a try. Read Less
I love vanilla and so many C&D tobacco blends, so it was a no-brainer to try this one. I found a pleasant, easy smoke that leaves an agreeable room note. And what's not to like that every time I open the jar, it's like unboxing a freshly baked cake.... Read More Not for those who care not for aromatics. Read Less
I guess I have smoked just about every Vanilla flavored tobacco out there. C&D's Green River Vanilla is hands down my favorite.

This is my first all Burley blend, and a new attempt to enjoy aromatics. And I do enjoy this one.

This came quite wet in the bag (I’ve noticed this with other C&D cavendish blends) and it had a subtle sweet smell. The flavor is definitively vanilla and yummy after drying out the bag for quite a while.

When i was young, one used to be able to walk into any drugstore and buy like a 10 oz drum of this stuff. Well, not this stuff. That stuff was black, wet and generally unappealing. Actually, it looks a lot like this stuff, but the differences beco... Read Moreme clear when you light them up. I probably still have a can of that stuff from the mid 90s packed away somewhere.. I found it impossible to finish a bowl. The can, impossible to finish in much the same way. To be fair, straight cavendish has never been my jam really. That said, the C&D version is delicious to the end. I found myself shocked when i got to the end of the bowl. It starts out like any VBC but with a better flavour overall. The difference really, is how it finishes. Like any VBC, it's mild as it gets- steamy even, great aroma. Sweet. Won't burn the mouth. It helps to char the bowl and then leave it for a day, maybe even store it in a non airtight container. You could zap it (just a bowl worth) in the microwave a few seconds to dry it out.. It's best as dry as possible. Leave it to C&D to take the most ubiquitous american pipe staple and completely reinvent it. Better even than McClelland's. As a lover of all things vanilla, I bet I'll actually smoke the occasional bowl of this here and there. The "apricots & cream" version is also pretty great.. Read Less

This blend has a nice vanilla aroma that fills the room when smoked. I can definitely taste the Burley . The tobacco was too wet for my taste and I needed to re-light several times. However, it burns evenly.
