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


vintage pipe tobacco

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
