Now don’t go thinking I’m not the sort of guy to give this tobacco a fair chance; I smoked the whole tin of it before making up my mind
This one is an aquired taste, I believe. This is recommended as a good after-dinner smoke. Although for me it takes a backseat to some other more subtly topped blends.
This is my favourite “desert tobacco”. As other reviews have stated it has a rich caramel flavour and just in general is an enjoyable pipe. The room note is also pure caramel, and so is not likely to offend non-smokers (unless they also happen to hate caramel).
This is an odd one. I have dabbled in aromatics from the mundane and downright awful (Cherry Paladin and Borkum Riff), to the subtle and sublime (Poschl Tabak’s Blue Train). I thought, well, I can tolerate Peterson’s Irish Oak, and I like Old Dublin. Maybe Sweet Killarney is a winsome Irish lass? Not! I found this tobacco to be a bit too sweet, a tad on the moist side, and the caramel flavor was cloying. The room note went along with the flavor for me. To be fair, I’m going to give it another try, on another day. Can’t recommend this one at this time. I might throw some Latakia in and see what happens. if you never hear from me again, I will have expired from caramelitis! (more…)
