Mild to Medium Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The very nutty, earthy, woody, deep molasses and cocoa sweet burley is the star component. The smokey, woody, herbal, floral, earthy, slightly dry Turkish plays a small support role. The unsweetened black cavendish chips in with a little brown sugar. The light brown, toasty Virginia cavendish provides a drop or two of honey, and is mildly grassy and citrusy in the background. The toppings are mildly applied, and the rum is a little more than the faint raisin essence. They tone down the tobaccos to a fairly small degree. The strength is a couple of steps past the mild mark, while the taste is in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a light creaminess and very smooth, rich consistent flavor that doesn’t weaken at any time. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a pleasant after taste and room note, and is an all day smoke.

This blend did kinda "blah" and had no real "rum", nor "raisin" flavor. I was expecting more from this blend when reading reviews elsewhere. It really doesnt deliver too much in the way of flavor.........it leaves you waiting for it. Another review mentioned rum raisin ice cream, and that sounded good, well, I dont get it. Id say steer clear unless you just want a tobacco only flavor. Not bashing it, some folks may disagree but im just a little put off.

This is great smelling tobacco that is fresh but despite not being "dry" it burned well for me. Not wet, but moist enough to be fresh and full of bouquet. I read the reviews saying that the flavoring wasn't apparent, but that was not my experience now having smoked this several times. Smoke it slow and if you take the smoke back and retrohale, sip it, breathe smoke it... It's there. I taste the raisiny delight in every puff. You get it on the back of the palate. It's definitely there, and pretty soon I will be ordering a large bag of this stuff. Priced really reasonable, too. YMMV and we know that what one taster experiences may not be what everyone experiences. Try it for yourself.

I purchased 4 oz. after reading great reviews on blend. After smoking 2 bowls there was no raisin taste at all, slight taste of rum. Burns cool and smooth.

I was a little bummed by this. Its a good smoke, packed well, tasted like a nice rum tobacco, with a pleasing room note, that even the mizzeruz approved of. Therein is the problem for me. A nice: "rum tobacco". Notice the absence of raisin in that description. To me this is a pleasant evening smoke, but to my tastes, did nothing more than other "rum" tobaccos I have already. (Honestly, it even looks just like S.V.Rum in cut, smell and feel). I suppose I was expecting a bit more dimensionally speaking, such as "rum-maple" which does offer a unique experience to the palate. I detect ZERO Oriental or Turkish. Actually, I'm kinda miffed at the whole lack of anything but "rum". I feel in many ways like I kinda got jipped on this one, or "they" tried to get one past me. A mildly spicy fruit cakey-ish flavor is what is what I was expecting. It is not even in the same zip code as that ball park. Super Value Rum is all this is.

I suppose I'm still glad I gave it a try, as it was on my wish list for a long time. I had to know. I kinda wish I'd just bought 2oz to try eek.

As a newer pipe smoker, I am mainly exploring the different blends (I favor aromatic blends, although I am dipping my toes into the non-aromatic blends now) to find what I like. Opening the tin, what I smelled was the rum but not the raisin. Room note was pleasant, again no hint of raisin. I really didn't get any rum or raisin taste, but it was nice with no tongue bite...
