Mellow is a fitting name for this Super Value blend. Smooth Burley tobaccos dominate this blend, as Virginias are added for depth and richness. The mellowed vanilla casing never bites, but draws cool and finishes with slight caramel notes. A blend for anytime and every day. Super Value Mellow, 12 ounces is probably not enough.

This blend has an incredible aroma in the bag, which raised my hopes and anticipation. I packed a bowl and settled into my chair. From first light all the way to the last 5 minutes of my 40-minute bowl there was nothing. No flavor. No aroma. Not even the sensation that smoke was in my mouth or traveling my nasal passages. The last 5 minutes had very faint, nearly nonexistent hints of flavor and aroma, but still no satisfaction. The experience was so lacking that I almost couldn't wait to pack a bowl of something else to make up for it. I won't knock the brand for this, as I have tried and enjoyed other blends from the label.......but this was the equivalent of smoking lucky strikes for decades then being handed Virginia slim ultra light.......not an enjoyable experience.
I think I found my blend; good value, great aroma. It does get a little soupy.
Smooth and cool smoke
Reasonably priced, smooth & mild tasting, not overly aromatic; compatibly combined with other pipe tobacco, but very satisfying by itself.
