Another great virginia, burley, black cavendish blend by Peterson which is cased with Amaretto. The Amaretto was very pronounced in the tin and carried over well to the smoke. I'd venture to say with a nice glass of scotch or Baileys it would be even more pronounced in the smoke. A good even cool smoke that takes lighting well and doesn't need much relighting. Definitely a top five if not top three aromatic for me.

A Solid Aromatic

The tin aroma of this blend is a strong, yet nice, sweet aroma of Amaretto. I also picked up some slight hints of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. The moisture level was a little on the moist side, as it is with most aromatics. And just like with most aromatics, I would suggest some drying time for the tobacco.

At the beginning of the bowl, I am picking up on a little bit of the amaretto flavoring of the tobacco. I can tell right away that this tobacco could probably bite pretty badly if pushed, so I recommend sipping the pipe instead of puffing on it. By sipping on the pipe, I am able to taste the amaretto flavor. It is light, but it is there. I got a pretty good taste of it right at the beginning and then it lightened up a lot.

For the sake of this review, I pushed it a little and it didnít take much to start feeling the sting of tongue bite and I backed off. I lost almost all of the amaretto flavor and the smoke started getting hot. I had to slow it back down to start tasting the flavor again. Maybe it requires a little more drying time than I gave it. I did dry it out so it was not clumping together when squeezed, but it could have been dried out some more. This is a blend that needs to be smoked slowly.

At about the half way point, I started losing a lot of the amaretto flavor even though the aroma of the smoke still had the smell. It was still sweet tasting, just not as much amaretto. It faded in and out for the rest of the bowl. This is a true aromatic. What I mean by that is that I couldnít taste hardly any tobacco taste, just the sweetness and amaretto flavoring. It is built of quality tobacco though and quality flavoring.

With a lot of cheaper aromatics, it has been my experience that even though the room note smells good and stays during the whole smoke, the flavor lasts only as far as about the first 1/4 of the bowl. Sometimes it is gone after the charring light. This is not the case with Sunset Breeze.

With a lot aromatics, the flavor does not transfer through to the smoke; but even though the flavor is not nearly as strong as the tin aroma is in this blend, you can still taste some of the amaretto taste in the smoke. The taste gets lighter the farther down the bowl you get, but you still get a taste of it through at least 3/4 of the bowl. After a couple of bowls in the same pipe, the flavor lasts all the way through to the end for me. It also did not turn bitter towards the end like a lot of the cheaper aromatics tend to do. It has a sweet finish. If you like aromatics and the flavor and smell of amaretto, this one is worth a try.

I Recommend it.
