An all-black mixture of unsweetened black Cavendish and a bit of Cornell and Diehl's Green River Vanilla is enhanced with a proprietary "cream" flavoring and apricot brandy for a mellow, flavorful smoke.
I ordered this because I watched a video from a while back when Chris Tarler was still with C&D. He was asked in this video what some of his favorite C&D blends were, and this was one he listed. I'm not much of an aromatic smoker, so I thou... Read Moreght I'd give it a go.
Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed this blend and found myself reaching for it more and more. It is great with a cup of coffee or as your final smoke of the day when you're in the mood for a "dessert smoke."
This is one I plan to re-order regularly so I can share it with my dad who is a dedicated 1Q & BCA smoker. Read Less
I get if you don't want to smoke these sticky, sweet concoctions. But I'm a fiend for this kind of stuff. C&D's "cream" flavoring is really good in just about anything, and this is almost evocative of holiday chocolates out of the tin. Smokes wet, so...

I bought this as one of my first tins of pipe tobaccos. After the first bowl i was hating my pipe and pipe tobaccos. I loved the taste but it was just a goopy mess. I tried drying but no better.

Avoided this for a while because of reviews but decided to try and am glad i did.

t like it in my Bulldog yes it will sizzle some toward the end and it takes a little extra to light it I usually put the flame to everything 3 times this one needs a 4th before it gets going but not that big a deal to me. Perfect for a quiet evening on the porch Read Less
This is a very wet tobacco. And it still has alcohol present I think, because it will hold the flame but not get the tobacco burning. This needs a lot of dry time, and will still leave a lot of moisture. It pops and cracks from the amount of moist...

This blend is the epitome of "whatever floats your boat." Clearly others like the blend. I do not. The tin note is strong, with a sweet, boozy aroma. The tobacco burns hot and goopy, even while sipping it. A bitter taste crept into the last... Read More third of the bowl.
I thought drying the blend would help, so I let the tobacco sit for about 30 minutes. No improvement. I left some out over night. That didn't work either.

I have tried a lot of c@d pipe tobacco, and hated them all and am glad to say I finally found better!

This is a lovely, sweet smoke with excellent smoke and a cool burn. The flavor of the apricot brandy does fade away toward the end, but it is replaced with an excellent, light vanilla amid the taste of cavendish tobacco. It is one I keep at all times... Read More. Read Less
This is an above average aromatic. Like anything else in life.....some folks like it and some don't. I am pretty much in the middle of the fence on this one. The issue I have is the flavor comes and goes as you smoke. When the flavor is there this is... Read More one of the best tasting aros out there. When the flavor goes it is just another mild smoke. The smoke is mellow and full with little to no burn if you smoke slow. Aromatics just like English, Balkin and any other mixture making slow (sipping) draws gives you much more from your tobacco than anything else you or the blend could do. I can make the best tobacco taste like crap by just puffing a hot bowl for awhile. Read Less
This is a nice flavored smoke. Now it is NOT as strong of a flavor as it is rated on this site. They have it at 5 "dots" for taste and I would put it more at 3.5 to 4 "dots".

The tin note is quite pleasant,Apricot smell at its best.
This is probably one of the tastiest aromatics,ever.
The room note is as sweet as it tastes.Vanilla smell and taste is present,here.
No bite.No tobacco taste.All in all,a great aromatic.
Not syrupy. Imparts an un-objectionable dryness that mimics that same quality of apricots. Less sweet than its name implies. Light in perceived Nic., it is quietly satisfying.

I tought it would taste more the apricot, but actually is more a vanilla/brandy combo. You can taste better the aprocit when you sniff the tobacco to smell it.
