A largesse of St. Nick's personal smoking mixture, this magical blend combines the finest golden Virginias with mellow Black Cavendish and a whisper of genuine St. James Perique for complex tobacco flavor enhanced by notes of orange liqueur and hints of ginger — alluding to an early legend of Kris Kringle secretly gifting gold to a needful family.

My second favorite holiday blend next to corn cob pipe and a button nose. The flavors that are described shine through very well! Unlike most aromatics where you can’t taste the topping. The tobacco comes through nicely as well. I’d recommend this to anyone, aromatic smokers or non aromatic smokers like myself.
Nice blend. Plenty of subtle flavors and no one overpowers another. Had to try it out but gonna conserve most of it for the Holidays.
Fantastic mild great flavor.
I generally prefer English tobaccos but with the approaching holidays I usually get a holiday blend or two just for the novelty of it. The thing about that is most of them don't seem to be all they are described as being but this one is different. Jolly Old St. NIcholas really surprised me with how good it is. Less than halfway through the first bowl I was thinking I needed to order more while I could still get it and that's precisely what I did. I've now got some tins in my tobacco cellar so I can enjoy it well after the holiday season has passed. Give this one a try. Chances are it may surprise you as much as it surprised me.
My first go around with the Christmas tobaccos with C&D, AND the fact that I'm fairly brand new to the pipe smoking hobby, but I just didn't have that "fall-out-of-my-chair" feeling when I lit my first bowl of it the night that they were released to the public. I'm an aro kinda guy, and I DO enjoy a lot of flavorings/casings, but just wasn't totally impressed. I'm not saying I won't order it again when it comes out next Christmas, but... It's a good smoke just not the top.
I scored two of these, I generally like Christmas offerings, some of them are my favorites. This is beyond bland. I have a full tin if anyone wants one....not impressed.
Very mellow and full of flavor.
