I'm admittedly not generally an aromatic smoker. The flavors in most aromatics hit you over the head without subtlety or complexity. This blend however had me embracing its layers.

As with most aromatics, the blend does benefit from a bit of drying prior to lighting but not nearly as much as most others in my experience. A fantastic smoke and one I'd highly recommend. Read Less
Very natural orange flavoring with no bite. Perfect moisture out of the tin, and burns down with little moisture. The flavoring only dominates the tobacco flavor slightly, and blends well with it.

When this stuff was born, all the other aromatic tobaccos brought it gifts of frankincense and myrrh. Seriously, I try a lot of aros for fun and most just fall into the same group of 'meh' for me- Very few turn out to be 'must have' blends. This is... Read More one I love. It is a singular pipe smoking experience.
Pure honey and orange blossom with a whisper of the light grassy tobacco underneath. This will ghost your pipe and your palate. Absolute flavour bomb. Read Less
That's about it though...the tin art fantastic. I wish ever tin could go nuts like this one. Just beautiful! With that said and out of the way. Not a great aromatic.

This is one you can puff on around non-smoking friends and they will say “wow what is that?“ It’s just an incredible fragrance. Really perfumes the world around you.

This is a blend that is awesome to smoke around people (which is what I bought it for), and it smokes mechanically wonderfully. I don’t personally like the exact taste I get, but that’s more of a preference of my taste and not about how the tobacco b... Read Moreehaves mechanically. I’ve had a couple of friends tell me it’s the best smelling tobacco they’ve smelled and constantly ask me to smoke it around them. The moisture was perfect out of the tin, but you need to jar it the day it comes to you because it’s in a non air tight bag and a non air tight tin. Also, the tin is perfect for keeping lighters and filters. Read Less
Why yes. Yes I am. I had seen a lot of praise for this blend and when it was restocked I grabbed a tin by chance while checking out with something else. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed.

I normally smoke English/Balkan blends, but during the summer months, I prefer Virginia blends. This summer I bought two “citrus” aromatics for comparison, Ashton Rainy Day and Rattray’s Exotic. They are both wonderful! A main difference I see is tha... Read Moret Rattray’s has a Tea/Floral/Perfume note to it that some might not like ( I do ). By comparison, Ashton’s has a deep alcohol note (rum, whiskey etc.) I’m so glad I got both as they both have their own niche to fill. If you’re looking for a good aromatic for summer that still tastes like tobacco, you can’t go wrong with either. Read Less
