I'm a fan of many bulk non-aromatic blends, but for aromatics a clear favorite is the pouch/tub Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic -- burley based, with Virginia as a condiment, and flavored with three liqueurs. Tobacco forward and one of the most sophisticated pouch/tub tobaccos I know.
Thank you mso for recommending SWRA. I tried this blend a few months ago based on your recommdation and it has become one of the few aromatics that I enjoy and one of my favorite blends in my rotation.

Any number of Wilke tobaccos. Very pricey but very high quality and in my mind worth the price and far superior
to the larger companies like Lane, Sutliff , and C&D

My favorites include:

191-a vanilla and honey cavendish in the 1Q genre
194 -a very lightly cased cavendish that reminds me of McClelland Chocolate cream
Rumcake- A cavendish blend infused with rum and vanilla
Vermont Maple Cavendish- Similar to Rumcake with a maple casing instead of rum
Gramercy Park- flavored with vanilla and liquers

They also make me a custom crossover bend
80% 194 15% latakia 5% perique that's slightly sweet, savory, and delicious

As you are seeking for some aro not that sweet, try university flake. it is burley and Virginia based and not to be considered as aromatic, but you can detect some plum aroma not strong at all.

Also can try Peterson summertime 2017 that has peach and apple notes.
May try Peterson Killarney but bear in mind that it is sweet. it may be called as sweet Killarney in the US.

I mentioned a pouch blend on this thread. I've enjoyed a number of bulk aromatics, but I admit none has stayed with me. I liked Queen Anne's Revenge, named after Blackbeard's flagship, and a number of others, but I haven't re-ordered.
