    I never have, but I have heard guys around the B&M say it's a good non-goopy Aro.

    Hey RC; For what it's worth I have tried it and wanted to like it but could not even get halfway through a tin. I love fruity high quality aromatics but this stuff was subpar for me.

    I highly recommend;
    4 Noggins - Lord Methley's, 3 Blind Moose
    Boswell's - Berry Cobbler, Raspberry & Cream, and Christmas Cookie

    I got some Christmas Cookie in a trade not too long ago, I enjoyed it. Thanks for those suggestions, i'll check that 4 Noggins out. :)

    It is a decent enough aro, but I don't go to it often, it's just too bland for me. It does smoke well though and won't gunk up your pipe.

    Seems like Blue Note and Sweet Vanilla Honeydew are better reviewed by pipers. I say this not ever having either. Just thought I'd mention it.

    Well, you could always buy one of CAO's little cigars in the same flavor and see what you think, though I suspect there would be some differences. Maybe if you unroll it and put the filler leaf in a pipe...

    I tried 3 CAO's including this one and smoked 1 bowl each and off'ed them. (They were dumped on me by someone who didn't like them either.
    As stated above; too goopy and was way to eak for my tastes. Not too much flavor (IMO).
    They need to stick with cigars.

    Not many tobaccos get consistently bad reviews, the CAO aromatics seem to. I 've tried 3 different aromatics from CAO and gave up; burn too hot and the casing is applied with an extremely heavy hand.

    Have you tired Erinmore Flake and Erinmore Mixture?

    I rather enjoy the tin I have, but it does have a couple of years of age on it. The vanilla and whiskey tend to come out a bit more than the fruit and it's not goopy.
