Pleasantly Surprised

I must say I was somewhat skeptical when I originally purchase my first tin. Upon opening the tin, a natural sweetness filled the air. Filling the pipe I notice a somewhat sticky tobacco. From the first bowl I discovered a mild smoke with the delicate, yet complex taste that leaves you wanting more. A slight hint of apricot gave the mixture a delicate sweet taste. The aroma was nice and as mild as the flavors. If you're looking for a mild, yet flavorful blend I would recommend trying this. I now keep an extra tin on hand.

Stanwell Melange


It's said to have a fruity, citrus, apricot like flavor to it, but myself I find it more of a coffee type flavor. To me it smelled, and tasted, like something you'd get at Starbucks. Burned pretty well, and didn't require much relighting. I have heard complaints of it ghosting pipes, but haven't encountered this problem myself. Surely worh a try if you like aromatics.

For the Virginia / Oriental Smoker and Pleases the red of the crowd around you!!

  • I was introduced to this blend in 2008 by a fellow pipe smoker in the finacial district of NYC
  •  
  • It is defiently a lady pleaser room note is that of Apricots and Honey the only blend my wife enjoys

 A good summer park smoke.

Pleases the Virginia / Oriental Smoker and all else who are around you.

Now for the smoker it offers a Melange of flavors. The Virginia is toasty and upfront Followed by the sweet aromatic oriental with the background note of fainlty apricots and honey. and a good boost of nicotine. A wonderful blend I was skectical at first when recomended but I am forever a fan and only spring and summer time smokes. It makes me long for spring in Dec

Burns clean and clear no gunk left in your pipe

moisture level is perfect not moist not to dry lights after two hits with the timber ( match)
