    So today i have picked up some of my favourite aromatic....Gawith and hoggarths cherry and vanilla.
    I can smell the tobacco through the pouch and its almost enough to make my mouth water, but im not smoking it just yet as i want to savour every draw.

    any of you have any particular tobaccos that make your senses go into overload in a good way :D.

    LOL, it's McClelland Blackwoods Flake. Not Backwoods cigars. Not really a fan of aro's anymore, although I still have some hanging around.

    ahh im sorry, i havent seen McClellands mixtures over here the only blackwoods ive heard of is the cigars, but i wouldnt say im a die hard aromatics fan, but i love having that cherry and vanilla around when im having a sweet tooth day and just want something light and easy going and very flavourful, strange thing is though i normally hate anything artificially flavoured with cherry, but that is my favourite aro by miles.

    Lane 1-Q, but not in the same sense you are talking about. 1-Q was the blend my dad smoked when I was a kid, so to me it has the quintessential "pipe" smell, from pouch note to room note.

    I know exactly what you mean, i remember when i was a kid a man in my street used to smoke condor bar, he was a small man who was dwarfed by neatly trimmed privet bushes, but when you went past his house in the winter you would just see puffs of smoke and the vinous, soapy floral heedy smell of his pipe, although not available now, the ready rubbed version of this i sometimes smoke reminds me of this old english staple, which makes me smile and makes me think of an almost meditative trance i get myself into when i have a looooong slow smoking session on it.

    There's some burley in it; the rest is mostly black-magic and port wine.

    im actually quite jelous because over in america you seem to have all these exotic tobaccos that sound like it would suit me down to the ground, mind i suppose we will have tobaccos over here that arent easily available or at all over your part of the world :) .

    If it makes you feel any better Craig, we can't even find Condor!
    And Penzance is mostly a myth. Oh sure, it comes around every so often, but Russ and Berg buy it all.
