The 1957 blend from Erik Stokkebye is an all-day smoking Aromatic blend of Burleys, black Cavendish and fine Virginias. A restrained top note of vanilla and/or caramel-ish persuasion makes this ribbon-cut blend a favorite of new smokers and old-timers alike.

Of all the 4th generation options I enjoy this one the most. Great flavor and aroma, and pleasant room note. I give it 4 stars because it is hard to keep lit even after letting it breathe and dry.
This is my favorite of the 4th generation blends that I've tried so far (I bought the 1855 & 1897 as well). The other blends are good, but I really like that touch of vanilla and the smoothness of this blend.
