Blend Name: Sutliff Taste of Spring

Tin Note: Febreeze, or some other perfumed detergent. Lemon/Lavender. Not the best tin note, but don’t let that turn you off.

Leaf: Black Cavendish, Burley, Virginia

Taste: A wonderful honey flavor. Not very sweet, but the honey flavor is still very prominent, with the grassy/hay flavors of the Virginia underneath. A great medium aromatic for those who want to try something different. The tin note may turn you off, but give the tobacco a try – smokes much better than I was expecting from the note, and I actually enjoy this one quite a bit.

Smokability: Nearly perfect moisture level from the tin.

Room Note: Honey, straw, hay

Sutliff Taste of Autumn by Joshua Cooper

Blend Name: Sutliff Taste of Autumn

Tin Note: Dr. Pepper cola, all spice, vanilla, honey

Leaf: Black Cavendish, Burley, Cavendish, Virginia

Taste: A medium-strength aromatic with complex flavors. The tin note is very strong, but the actual tobacco is much more mild. Hints of vanilla and autumn spices (think pumpkin pie), but it is not overly sweet. The topping does a great job at letting the vanilla from the black cavendish and the Virginia flavors exist on their own. The more I smoke this, the more I like it.

Smokability: Perfect moisture level right from the tin, but some may prefer a little more drying time.

Room Note: Vanilla, pumpkin spices

Sutliff Breckinridge Review

Blend Name: Breckinridge

Tin Note: Chocolate, cocoa, nutmeg

Taste: This is a great blend for the Burley connoisseurs out there. No topping, no nonsense. Just creamy, nutty, slightly cocoa-tasting Burley. Mild but not weak, pleasant but not bland. Goes great with coffee in the morning. The flavor lasted throughout the smoke.

Moisture: I had to rub the tobacco out a little before I filled my pipe, but the moisture level was perfect. No drying time needed. It smoked well all the way down.

Room Note: Cocoa, leather, earthieness. Not a strong room note.

County Cork Review By J Cooper

The tin note is of sweet Irish Cream over a bed of Virginias and Burleys, but not in an overwhelming way. All flavors are detectable in a cohesive blend.  The moisture level was perfect…not wet like I was expecting of an aromatic.  In fact, this blend is closer to that I call a “crossover” blend that has traits of an aromatic and a virginia/burley, and Sutliff managed to pull it off perfectly in this offering.

Not difficult to get this tobacco lit, nor to maintain the ember. Room note is pleasant, with just a hint of Irish Cream over the sweet burley notes.  The smoke is very pleasant and this blend smokes very well…no bite at all even when puffed a little faster than normal.

The first half of the bowl is a very smooth and creamy smoke, however the more you smoke the more the virgina and especially burley flavors make themselves known, but not in a bad way.  This is a ver mild smoke, and not overly sweet, so I can see this being an easy everyday smoke for burley fans out there.
