After the incredibly success of Blood Red Moon, Cult has released a new aromatic tobacco: Abacus. This complex blend is comprised of Burley, Cavendish, and Virginia tobacco and has an even more complicated flavor topping of cocoa, vanilla, and hazelnut. If you prefer strong aromatic tobacco with an overwhelmingly sweet room note, the Abacus is right up your alley!

Really like the chocolate scent, but it's not overpowering all the other tobacco flavors. If it weren't so expensive I'd get more.
Sorry didn't like this very much, just didn't taste like anything.
Great smoke! Wife hates the after aroma. I must buy more! Haha
Very sweet, and smooth. Lots of chocolate notes up front backed by the vanilla. Hint of nuttiness. The smoke was cool and light which I enjoyed cause I'm abut of a nic whimp. Overall my all day choice for a richer aromatic smoke.
I purchased a tin of Cult Abacus along with Cult BRM as my first tins of aromatic tobaccos. Abacus is very similar to BRM minus the cherry notes. The description of this product says its "Overwhelmingly" aromatic...and almost scared me away. Turns out the room note is pleasant and not so over the top...great anytime of the day smoke. I would purchase Cult Abacus again and now I can't wait to try Cult Conspiraacy....Cult does good pipe tobacco!
Abacus is a cool and mild mannered smoke with no bite. There is a definite sweetness on the tongue, but it is hard to detect a specific flavor. Taste is mild, room note is mild, strength is mild, just an overall pleasant smoke. A well crafted blend, where everything is balanced. I like it a lot. If you are a fan of sweet aromatics, this is a must try.
Picked up a tin of Abacus to try since I'm a fan of blood red moon. I'm enjoying it very much, it's just too bad the price isn't a little lower lIke brm. Still, it's priced well for a tin and I'll likely buy more.
