Not your typical aromatic
I smoked drug store aromatics for many years but, once I discovered Virginia
flakes, VaPers and English blends, I stopped smoking aromatics
altogether. About five years ago, while away from home, I found myself
in need of pipe tobacco and the only thing I could find that seemed
half-way decent was Skandinavik Full Aroma, so I bought a can. I'm glad I
SFA has real good (as in real and good) tobacco flavor,
which is the first thing that I look for in a pipe tobacco. While an aromatic (sort of cherry favored), the flavoring takes a
definite back seat to the tobacco and, as a result, enhances rather than
detracts from the enjoyment of the (high quality) tobacco. SFA has all the other qualities of a good pipe tobacco (correct moisture
content, easy to pack, light and keep lit, and burns to a clean
ash). It's also readily available and reasonably priced.
I smoke SFA mostly during the summer months. It's cheery (pardon the
pun) flavor seems to complement perfectly the fun and relaxation of
hanging out at the Jersey Shore. Whether you're a fan of aromatics or not, give it a try. I think you'll like it.
