This will account for detectable flavors like cherry or chocolate. Taste i TASTE: although a wholly subjective measure, it is one of the most important in that it measures how tasty smokers find the blend.
Like food, some dishes are tastier than others.
Basically, how strong does it smell, and how pleasant do those around you find that smell. It is in excellent moisture content out of the tin and I recommend you smoke it as so without drying as it will take away a bit of the flavour and aroma. The tobacco cut is excellent, it's a mix of long ribbons and broken flakes, it backs well and can pack tightly without hindering the draw and it leaves a little bit of nice aroma on your finger tips.
Also a dry draw test reveal the flavour profile in a teasing way. Upon first light the ribbons catch a nice kindle, but the flakes require a bit of attention.. But once lit, it stays so, and burns well to a perfect, white ashy bottom with a few to none relights. The body of it is quite medium and the aroma makes me inhale the smoke with my nose to get more of it.
And the taste is pretty nice and never overpowering. It gives me hints of Vanilla and some creamy, pastry flavour as if it is a freshly made croissant baked with honey. I thoroughly enjoy it, despite my lesser tendency towards aromatics and I see this making my rotation. Very nice review, makes me want to retry this blend, it's been quite awhile since I've had any of the Vanilla Cream.
It was a surprise to me as well.. Bought it a while ago and never opened it.. It's a really, good mild smoke..
Even if you don't like vanilla I hate custard! While obviously flavored it is done really well and I can't tell if it is cased or simply dressed as the humidity levels are very good. Halfway down the bowl and after resting the pipe for a few minutes I got the sweet and cool smoke that I was looking for. Either way, your reviews are bound to get better over time. Read More ugh not as much sweet or vanilla taste as I had hoped for, if you sip it slowly and slightly breathe through your nose you will get a little sweet vanilla fairly often. This worked out badly for me as I could not get away from tongue bite until I graduated to English blends.
And it works well while socialising. Thanks Ahmad! This is one of the few blends my Girlfriend likes the smell of. The room note is excellent and even when I burn too hot, as I tend to, there is still enough flavor to do justice to its name.
I've been smoking a tin of flake one year old and can see myself getting more. Not only is the flavor a joy, but the combination of ribbons and broken flake makes for a smonth and even smoke. Smoke a straight virginia in the same pipe later, I found that to be my favourite way to enjoy this aromatic, as a sweet ghost aka a Casper friendly ghost.
