Sweet Candy

Wow, from the opening of the tin through the smoke this is one awesome blend.  It is like smoking cotton candy with a strong good taste and room note.  Cool smoke and smokes drier than expected.  I enjoy this the best after dinner like a dish of Creme Brulee.

Easy All day Smoke


My tin of Molto Dolce was a recent purchase and if your into tin art this is a nice one.The tobacco is a mostly dark almost black ribbon with a few light brown strands. The tin note was very similar to Lane's 1Q and blindfolded i doubt i could differentiate the two.It needed no drying and lit quickly after the charring light.The smell was a nice vanilla, very sweet, and the room note was pleasant.Smoked easily with  nice billows of smoke,no gurgles and no bite at all.If you like 1Q you will surely enjoy Molto Dolce as well.Definately for aromatic smokers!

Superior in all respects

My rusty High School Latin tells me that 'Molto Dolce' means 'very sweet' or 'exceptionally calm' - and this is an apt description of this fine tobacco.

I received a 1.5 oz tin of Sutliff Private Stock Molto Dolce from Altadis as part of their free sample program. My thanks to them. Opening the tin unleashed a heavenly smell that I can only describe as 'German Chocolate Cake' - caramel, vanilla, and coconut, with a little whiff of whiskey. I can give the tin note five stars.

MD is ribbon cut, in very long, narrow ribbons. It looks wet, and feels slightly wet. (More on this later.) Flakes of cavendish are mixed in.

I smoked the first bowl right out of the can in a freshly cleaned 1964 Brewster straight apple. I did not employ any special packing technique, just stuffed it in 'til it "felt right". The draw gave me a taste of that same great aroma. A false light made the tobacco spring up like trod grass. Tamped it down and lit 'er up.

Great clouds of milky white smoke billowed, and continued thru the entire bowl. Molto Dolce makes more smoke than a brushfire, and people stood on tip-toes to sniff it. Four co-workers, half of them non-smokers, confirmed that the room note is a winner. Five stars.

And let me just say, Molto Dolce tastes good. It tastes like cake, like caramel, like vanilla. About halfway thru the bowl, I caught a taste of walnuts, or maybe pecans, from the burley. It burned down to a dark ash with a few blackened dottles - I rarely get to finish a bowl at work. There was zero gurgle and no tongue bite. I did get a little wetness thru the pipe toward the bottom, tasted like sugar water. After emptying the pipe, there was some moisture around the draw hole.

This is without a doubt the best-tasting tobacco in my (admittedly limited) experience. How about a second bowl?

This time, I left MD out on a paper towel under a desk lamp, and it was hard to work with that scent right under my nose! After three hours, there were yellow spots on the paper where it soaked up the casing. This tobacco is wet, but doesn't stain the fingers or clump. The aroma will remain on the hands until washed off.

The second bowl was smoked in a nearly new, clean Missouri Meerschaum Diplomat corncob. There was a difference in the taste, not better or worse, just subtly different. This smoke was much dryer, which I attribute to drying as well as the different smoking characteristics of the cob. Still cool, still clouds of tasty smoke, still no burn. I did draw on this bowl a little harder, but no ugliness reared it's head.

Overall, Molto Dolce is a superior smoke. Everything about it is good, and nothing disappoints. I give it the highest possible score, the best possible recommendation, and I will definitely be laying in a supply. A full five stars, no reservations.

Another Winner

I normally don't review pipe tobacco because I have allways been torn between English and aro. I'm not loyal to any brand or style, but I do have some favorites. Altadis has impressed me many times in the last two years, this is no exception!. This instantly became a top aro choice for me from the first light. This stuff is like a can of candy, sweet creamy, smokey, satisfying, and in general JUST DAMN GOOD. I gave it a four star on flavor because I want to leave room for something better, if it ever happens. What a winner this stuff is, if Altadis doesn't make atleast one thing you like then quit smoking.

Smooth and Rich Indeed - Molto Dolce

I am a complete novice to pipe smoking, started after my husband had picked up on it just last year. I have to say out of everything I have tried and bought, this is by far my favorite Aromatic blend.

A Good Smoke

I got a tin of this as a sample and it wasn't too bad. It is definitely overly moist in the tin and drying time should be given to it. It is a very goopy cased blend that carries its flavor well into the smoke. It's not too hardh or chemical tasting. I can see some aro lovers keeping a tin around. I wouldn't reccommend as a first smoke for beginners however as it can bite if you're not careful.
