    I love LL RLP-6; however, I really enjoy the end of the bowl were there are much stronger flavors. Does anyone have an aromatic recommendation that is a bit more fuller flavor?

    After hearing about it constantly from the aro fans I finally picked up a tin of cult blood red moon recently. And all of those aro-heads were right. It's absolutely delicious. Better than I expected and my hopes were high after all the praise. Get involved!

    One of the few Aro blends that I regularly reach for is Sutliff #706 Tropical Sunset.

    I second Perdurabo's suggestions. Golden Days of Yore and Autumn Evening are two of the few aromatics I will do.

    I am not a big aromatic fan but when the mood strikes I have a few very nice ones in my cellar. I would recommend Cult Blood Red Moon, Sutliff Molto Dolce and Mac Baren Modern Virginia Flake. Give those a try and see if you like them.

    Captain Black Red Sky is the only aro I regularly buy, it's another cherry blend to try along with Blood Red Moon.

    Boswells Bear Blend, not too sweet and good flavors.

    +1 on Modern Virginia Flake, a distinctly tobacco forward aromatic based on high quality Virginia leaf.

    Im not big on aromatics, but East India Trading Co has some good blends, Cellar Reserve and Officers Club

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Sillem's Black. Very unique and amazing aromatic. A sweet, fruity, latakia bomb for lack of a better description.

    Dan a Tobacco Blue Note
    + 1 on the Sillem's Black
    +1 on the Golden Days of Yore.
    Cult Blood Red Moon.

    Overall Blue a note is the absolutely best aromatic I've ever had, I guess it's because it delivers some good nicotine as well.
    If you really want some good flavors that I don't consider aromatic, try some of GH&Co's tobacco. They are my favorite house.

    Thank you, aromatic smokers, for stepping up to the plate, and pointing out that aromatic smokers make a valuable contribution to the fine art of pipe smoking. I'd like to suggest three classics that have the requisite oomph and deliver flavor not found elsewhere: Pipeworks and Wilke Royal Scot, Peretti's Coffee Blend, and Tewksbury's Hobbit's Weed.

    Ooooo! I'm gonna have to try that Peretti's Coffe a Blend. I really enjoy their Original Mixture and I've been wanting to try others from the same house.

    Wow, I have many new tobaccos to sift through and decide what to try first.

    Reiner Long Golden Flake is also very tasty. Brigham Klondike Gold is aged in the tin 2-3 year before being released. It has a very smooth flavor from the get go.

    Hi jndyer. Not a tobacco recommendation, but aeros do very well - in a well pipe. The opening to the bowl is located above a well, which lets the annoying moisture fall down and avoids the gurgle many aeros produce. A long stem is a plus too. They like to burn hot and it cools the smoke.

    Some (widely divergent) aromatic faves with me:

    +1 on the Cult Blood Red Moon.
    EITC Cellar Reserve
    SG Fire Dance Flake
    SG Grousemoor
    Mac Baren Vanilla Cream
    Peterson's St. Patrick's Day 2015, now morphed into Founder's Choice

    Most recently Samual Gawith's Brown Sugar Flake... fine VAs, VERY tobacco-y, mesmerizing aromas and flavors. (I wanted to buy more but can't seem to find it now... it was just "out there" very recently.)

    And C&D "Bijou"... "married with a hint of honey"... I guess not technically an aro, per se, but my family loves the aroma and I get all that age VA smooth complexity and tobacco satisfaction. (Don't know if this is one the C&D mold cases now or not.)
