I am not terribly fond of aromatics but this is a good one. It’s similar in composition to Lane 1-Q but with a sweeter casing. It’s an aromatic mixture so it lacks the depth and richness of a Virginia flake, English or hearty burley blend. But it has a rich plum pudding flavor and aroma with some vanilla custard notes. I bought an 8 oz tin and though I’m not a great fan of standard aromatics, I’ll be smoking all of this. I’d give this a 3.5 star/B+ rating for my preferences but it is a very good American style aromatic.

I just ordered my second 8 oz tin of this stuff, and not because I enjoy aromatics but rather enjoy it as a high quality tobacco. It is very good on its own, but in addition to smoking it alone I have been mixing some of mine with either 101 or 1072, and it's outstanding.

Well I had this blend today. I've moved on from aromatic blends years ago. When I found English, VaPer, and now my beloved Burleys I never looked back. A few over the pass couple of years have peeked my interest. Peretti is a master at whatever they do. So I tried their Yuletide for the first time this year. Glad I did and glad I got the 8 oz tin. Virginia Cavendish with flavors of Plum Pudding. Not over done. They used top quality leaf. Very Mild strength and nice room notes. I liked it for a change of pace.
