Autumn Evening

I had a tin of this sitting around for about a year, so I thought I would finally give it a try.  When I opened the tin, it revealed loose, coarse cut tobacco that had brown and black tones with hues reminiscent of chocolate.  Even before I could see this blend, I could smell it when I popped the top.  All things that can be coated deliciously with maple syrup came to mind.  My mind bounced between French toast, pancakes, and maple cured bacon as I took in the scent.  The tobacco was slightly moist to the touch as I packed the bowl, and an unlit sip of the pipe tasted of light maple syrup.

As a matter of fact, that is all I got from this blend, a light maple syrup flavor from the charring light to the bottom of the bowl.  The finish was long on this blend, and my taste buds felt like I had just eaten French toast and maple syrup for up to an hour after smoking.  I actually had the urge to wash my beard, as if it had syrup stuck in the whiskers.   This blend did leave a goopy mess in the bottom of a couple of my briars, but overall it generally left clean ash.  The room note was a pleasant maple aroma that had toasty undertones.

Overall, I like Autumn Evening.  It is a good mild smoke, with a very mild casing that is pleasing to my taste buds.  This will not make it into my regular rotation, but I wouldn't turn my nose up at another tin.
