A base of tangy bright Virginia and silky smooth black cavendish, along with some nutty white burley is finished with a combination of fruit and berry flavors with just enough creamy vanilla to keep the taste from being too sharp and sweet. If you’re a lover of the fresh, sweet flavor of fruits, this is a blend you’ll want to try.

Excellent easy going aromatic blend. Smooth cavendish with just a wisp of vanilla, grassy Virginia and nutty Burley topped with subtle fruit flavors. Puts one in mind of a good hand pie, or as we call them in rural Ky, fried pies! Well done blend, no excess moisture, burns clean throughout all the bowl. Could be an all day smoke for many. Solid 3

I'm surprised I'm the first one to review Russ's Tartlet. This is a excellent blend IMO! The appearance is a mix of darks and light browns and visually appealing. The moisture content is perfect and drier than most aromatic blends. It takes a flame well with no issues or Tounge bite.

Flavor is tangy citrus with berry notes. Sweet but not cloying or overly done. This turned out to be a very good tobacco and will likely repurchase when/If I finish the 1oz sample.

This is what a aromatic blend SHOULD be. Taste great with a present room note, easy lighting with no Tounge bite.
