The aroma from this is amazing, coupled with a nice, smooth and sweet flavor. Very enjoyable for beginners with a step up from your "starter" aromatics.
I purchased a tin this past summer and it has been stored unopened until today. We have a dreary rain and snow day; a perfect day to sit on the porch and test Rainy Day. First upon opening the tin. Very nice sweet aroma. Second upon lighting. A very pleasant taste and nice aroma to the smoke. I don't understand the reviews that state this has a bite. I imagine it could should I get it too hot and puff away too fast. I'd rate this a mild to medium taste with a very pleasant room note. I smoked a bowl in the house while reading. The Mrs. commented that I should smoke this more often as she enjoys the aroma as I smoke and afterward.
I got some of this from a local shop and it was older and very bland. Got a fresh tin to give it another try and its actually very good. Mild with a touch of spice, light fruit, floral, and oak notes.
This is one of the few tobaccos that taste the same smoking as it does in the tin. It is a sweet treat after a long day. I get NO bite and it smokes smooth and even all the way down. It may just be the way I pack my pipe but it only required one match and no tamping to smoke the entire bowl down to the bottom. My go-to sweet tooth tobac.
At first, I wasn't sure if I liked the tropical fruit flavoring on this blend, but it grew on me as I worked my way through the tin. It's light, flavorful, and rests pleasantly in between sweet citrus and tangy citrus. Even if you're not a fan of fruity blends - this one is worthy of putting in your pipe and smoking.
Not very smooth!
This would be a smoke I think is a bit too citrus for me but don't get me wrong if you are looking for a flavorful tobacco to me this would be all most a desert smoke or with a good rum.
This was surprisingly one of the best flavored tobaccos I have purchased to date. It is lightly sweet and nutty, with a nice whiskey undertone that pairs this smoke wonderfully with a good after dinner cordial like Drambuie, or for just sharing a flask of good bourbon around a campfire. I could go to this smoke every time and never be disappointed.
rainy day is good all day until night when a change is desired
