Ashton Smooth Sailing
It is a good blend that is easy on the pallet that does overly linger.
Ashton Smooth Sailing
I purchased this based on other reviews as I was in search of a tobacco reminiscent of chocolate to add to my rotation for the upcoming holidays. Everyone’s taste is subjective, of course, but I got no hint, much less taste, of chocolate at all from it. It also burned hot. I gave it about half an hour of drying time and smoked it in a Nordic 2016 edition hunter (zebra) pipe. The taste was ok but not nearly as good as several others in my collection so I won’t likely purchase this one again. With that said it might appeal to those with a greater appreciation of Virginias as it is a rather “Virginia forward” tobacco.
A great taste and aromatic smoke.
Pairs well with everything from coffee to whiskey.
The pleasant flavor persists to the end without turning bitter. Smooth Sailing indeed as it agrees with my favorite beverages; coffee and whiskey.
One of my favorites
Insanely mellow and incredibly enjoyable. I usually feel like I should be on the beach with a piña colada while I'm having a smoke. Ashton makes phenomenal tobacco.
perfect morning blend
I am not a fan of the aroma blends. I prefer the true smell of tobacco, but for a morning or first part of the day, I looked for something more delightful and smoothy. This example works for me pretty well. The coconut & kind of rum or alcohol notes are present there with no more than enough. And I tried other types of Ashton, this manufacture is at my top.
It's in the name
If you're looking for a delicious and aromatic tobacco that tastes just as great as it smells - look no further. Smooth sailing is a perfect smoke for kicking back on a dock at a bay and wasting time.

Tastes just like it smells. Delightful. A tiny bit of reluctance to get established, but I liked it a lot.
Smooth smoke you can enjoy and taste the maple coconut and dark chocolate will be buying more soon.
