Low Country - Hazelnut.

The blend's made up of mostly mid-sized ribbons, and is fairly uniform. There's a lot more Burley than black Cavendish. In the pouch-note it's easy to identify it as an aromatic. I've had this for about two months and it's still a touch too damp; being loosely pouched that's indicative of it being a bit 'wet' when fresh.

I wasn't expecting to like this, but I do. The Hazelnuts embellish the Burley's natural nuttiness perfectly. These two couldn't work any more harmoniously together if they tried!! The black Cavendish gives a lesser flavour than the Hazelnut/Burley, adding just a slight sweetness. The temperature from Hazelnut is fairly cool, and I get no tongue bite. I find the burn good, not necessitating much attention.

The room-note: very pleasant. Nicotine: mild to medium.

Low Country Hazelnut? Cracking.

Highly recommended.

The nutty, earthy, mildly woody and dry white burley is the main component, and also has a hint of a rough edge. The unsweetened black cavendish adds some sugar. The hazelnut topping has more flavor depth to it than most aros with that topping. It also tones down the tobaccos to a moderate extent. The strength is a small step past mild, while the taste is a step below the mild to medium mark. The nic-hit is fairly mild. Won’t bite, but burns a little warm if puffed fast. Burns at a moderate pace with fairly consistent taste, though it gets a little syrupy in the last third of the bowl. Leaves some moisture in the pipe, and needs a few relights. The after taste is okay, but some may find the syrup distracting. An all day smoke.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

Perhaps I am spoiled, but I compared this one against the best (sadly extinct) hazelnut Aromatics that I ever tasted; Master Penman and Nording's Labrador, and there is simply no contest here. Those have velvety rich flavor, and are true masterpieces, while this 'stuff' is dry and dusted with candy Lick-a-Stick powder.

The topping gives off the semblance of hazelnut, but it smells cheap, as is my impression of most Cornell & Diehl products [I didn't realise who made Low Country, until it was too late]. The cut is quite thin and airy, so some packing is needed to get some density to burn. The leaves are dry and full of topping powder, sparking up instantly and making a crackling noise when puffed on.

The lit product is very mild with any intensity coming from the bitter artificial flavor, which is a shame as none of the taste comes through. If I was unaware of what I had in the bowl, I'd guess it was something that 'was' sweet but dried out into an unappealing old Aromatic. It is possible that the batch I smoked (being a bulk order) was in fact old and played into my low rating, but I can't imagine wanting to try it again.

The first thing that has to be known about this tobacco: it is not at all sweet. However this is not necessarily a bad thing, just good to know. What it is is very nutty. The hazelnut topping is pleasant and pairs well with the nuttiness of the burley. A pleasant flavour if not a little underwhelming. The hazelnut is somewhat dissipating throughout the bowl.

Will not burn hot or bite, very easy to smoke. Also as a much larger body than I'm used to which was a pleasant surprise.

The main ingredient has to be the burley, it is nutty no doubt, but extremely extremly mild. V

This is a perfect working smoke. Very mild, very inoffensive, just something to puff on for a bit without paying it much attention while still getting some nice flavours. For that, it's not bad
