I'm not sure if I received a bad tin or it's the tobacco itself, but the taste was so horrible I literally had to vomit at some point. I didn't even save it just in case I run out of tobacco, I threw it away.
I am doing my review again because for some strange reason it didn't fully post the first time. Upon opening my can of Autumn Evening, it was a tad bit dried out, I'm not sure if that's normal or I just got a bad tin. The maple flavor was front and center and it was very good, if you freight train smoke this blend you may get a little bite. I really liked this blend, I definitely recommend.
Tin note was mostly maple to me, the room note was a very nice and I can see where this blend gets it name. Taste wise I was not happy or sad, I can see me finishing the tin and possibly buying more later, but was underwhelmed by the flavor... Maybe it's C&D or just me (am newer pipe smoker) but it seems that all the C&D blends I buy have great tin/room notes (even when I can't smell the advertised flavors) but in tasting, the flavors seem subdued or missing, but the tobacco flavor is present and pleasant, which I don't get with other brands (e.g. - Sutliff). This makes me sad as I really like buying tobaccos in tins vs bulk in a plastic bag for both convenience, display and storage.
This is one of my favorites to smoke year around. Great room note. And to me, more complex than a goopy blend with too much topping. Smoked a bowl with my Neerup bent brandy purchased here. Smoked the entire bowl with zero relights. Great product.
Very nice. Very dry in the can. I attached a small disk humidifier to the lid and all is well. Good nic hit. No bite. Nice flavor and aroma. Will buy again.
I love this pipe tobacco, and isn't it appropriate for this time of the year! Be careful because it can sneak up on you. I've been a pipe smoker for 30+ years, but until recently I always smoked whatever my local tobacco shop had. I am new to C&D's tobaccos and really love their blends. They are magnificent but strong.
Smells good in the can. Just a so so tobacco.
By far one of favorite blends for the Aro side. It burns well, has an incredible room note that everyone seems to like, And tastes well too. Grab a bowl, and start the leaf peeping.
