I have noticed a lot of tobaccos are coming out right now that have a Christmas theme. I am looking for a blend that actually has Christmas notes in it, such as maybe cinnamon or other flavorings. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Peterson comes out with a nice seasonal leaf. They're late in getting 2011 Summer out though. Their 2010 Holiday Season is/was good. Hopefully their 2011 Holiday won't be. McClelland Christmas Cheer is a pure va. No casings/flavorings at all.

I saw one on a review that sounded real good. Said it was flavored with Pecans, rum and some spice, but it is extinct.

If you're "into" aros, Boswell's in Chambersburg PA custom blends some mighty fine blends that many here can attest to. Sadly, I live 2 hours away and still haven't been to "Heir Boswell's" yet! Shame on me!

I can meet in 2 weeks. I can meet in Oct too! I really need to go there. Thursday morning is probably the best time to be there. When they open up and the pipes are up.......... although, it really doesn't matter if you've got great burners already.... :)

pm me and we'll have a mini-PSF live smoke!

Smokin a bowl of the holiday spirit 2011 right now and I think it's fantastic. I haven't smoked an aromatic since discovering English blends but this one is a nice change of pace. Just delicious and probably exactly what you're looking for in a Xmas based tobacco.

Hearth and Home has a holiday blend called Egg Nog; Cavendish and Black Cavendish with Vanilla and other misc. flavorings; jury is about half and half on this one, but it sounds interesting. May have to give it a go towards the holidays just to say "I did".

Manassas Pipe Tobacco from Old Virginia is a burley blend heavily topped with Grand Marnier. Personally, I don't favor aromatics but the smell and smoking quality of Manassas works for me. Nobody will complain - very orange smelling - very Christmas-ie.

If you can find it, try Samuel Gawith's Christmas Mixture. Cloves, nutmeg, orange peel and cinnamon. I'm not gonna personally say I enjoy it, but it is different. If you can't find it, I have a full tin here.
