Sutliff Tobacco Company - Christmas Spice.

The contents of the pouch appear to be an even split between black and brown, and the cut's quite coarse. It's too damp to be smoked without any airing, and it needs quite a long one, at that! The nose from the pouch is pure Christmas, so on with the festivities:

Getting Christmas Spice lit, and burning well, requires some work; even after a good airing the heavy casing causes it to still be sticky. Once a burn's going the added flavouring tastes heavy: the cinnamon gives spice, the caramel gives lots of sweetness, and the vanilla gives a little cream. Sadly, although I like the casing, it can cause the smoke to be bitey.

The nicotine's mild, and the room-note's quite nice, even though it generates a fair quantity of smoke in the room.

I don't smoke heavy aromatics that often, but as Christmas is the time for indulgence this is a great choice!

Four stars.

The smell is vanilla and maybe a bit of honey; it is creamy and smooth. The flavor is very much vanilla. Overall there is a creamy and sweet quality to it. The cinnamon is there, but lightly, and it's good that it serves as a condiment flavor rather than a main one. Enjoying around Christmas time enhances the experience I think, and I'm not sure it's as enjoyable during other times of the year.
