Soft, tasty aroma clouds. Very mild cake for prolonged smoking.
Don’t buy this,please, save it all for me. This is my second purchase of this blend. I don’t know if it’s an aromatic or a Virginia with a topping but I love it. Smells like baked goods and taste like vanilla bean and dark fruit.
A pleasant smoke, not overpowering in the aroma nor the taste. But tasty enough to know its vanilla.
In so many vanilla tobaccos the vanilla acts as a dictatorial overlord, cloyingly obscuring the tobaccos in the blend. Here, though, it is used well, enhancing the excellent tobacco and letting nature of the tobacco itself shine. I personally like to let the coins dry a bit before loading my pipe. I did this by accident once and have not failed to let it dry since.
This tobacco is nice and smooth, stronger than what I am used to though. My wife let me smoke a bowl in the office with a window open, in Upstate NY (COLD out!). I did not taste or smell much Vanilla at the time, but the next morning the office had a pleasant Vanilla aroma.
