    I generally don't smoke aromatics, however I've seen Molto Dolce mentioned numerous times while reading here in the forums. I regularly smoke Virginias and VaPers such as Orlik Golden Sliced, SG Full Virginia Flake, SG Golden Glow, SG Saint James Flake, and Escudo. I recently purchased a tin of Miss. River and absolutely loved it, hence I'm trying to make myself open to smoke other things. What I'm worried about is, will it still taste like tobacco? I thoroughly enjoy tobacco "taste" if you will. I've smoked aromatics in the past, mostly house blends from my local B&M, they do smell good to the people around me but frankly I did not enjoy the taste at all. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    I have not had this blend but everyone says it is very sweet and many comment that there is no real tobacco taste during the smoke. It's fairly wet out of the tin so drying is essential. If you have an occasional sweet tooth this may work for you. I don't smoke aros all that often and ehn I do they usually have some percentage of latakia in them so others here are bound to be better judges of Molto Dolce. Good luck.

    It's a good aro for a change of pace. Very sweet but with an awesome room note.

    It tends to turn my tongue black so I haven't smoked it in a while.

    I no longer smoke aro's either as I simply get no taste from them. I still have a few aro's stored in Mason jars including MD. Just for the hell of it I smoked a bowl of it about a week ago and it left me totally unsatisfied with nothing more than sucking in a hot vapid air with a pleasant room note. From now on if I have the taste for something sweet I'll just go to my local Baskin-Robins for some ice cream. At least I know I can taste that!

    That's exactly what I was concerned with Phil. In my experience most aromatics leave a smoker wanting alot more. Anyone have any recommendations of a tobacco that has a pleasant room note to a very discriminating non-smoker, yet still tastes like tobacco?

    Molto tastes like candy but not tobacco. It tastes good and is what it is. Most aros don't taste like tobacco. They aren't meant to. But everything is worth at least one smoke in my book. You never know when you will find a new favorite.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    Peterson's University Flake comes to mind... love it! Has a somewhat sweet taste married with a tobacco taste and it leaves, in my opinion, a nice room note. A MUST try.

    it's alright
    smooth consistent...maybe a good switch hit...in a cob
    when it comes to aros i go for Boswell's Christmas Cookie or Piper's pleasure.
    also the new Sutliff Honey and Chocolate is really good.
    so if you want to switch and try an aro
    i'd personally order it

    If I smoke an aromatic, I mix it at 40% with 60% Carter Hall. I still get some tobacco taste, and others around me can enjoy the aroma. Win/win. I don't have much stock of aromatic tobaccos, but I do keep some on hand for times when I'm smoking in proximity to others.

    I have a tin of this on its way to my house right now actually, haha. From what I have seen and heard, it is very moist and needs to be dried out a bit before you smoke it. I have heard it leaves an amazing room note, and tastes decent. Probably has no tobacco taste though, but I have not tried it yet so there is not much I can say.

    I think Molto is sweet to an extreme, though I haven't tasted it. Other Sutliffs aromatic blends are good,
    if you can smoke aromatics. I smoke aros in rotation now and then, to set off English, Va/Pers, and burley
    blends I enjoy. Sutliff blends that are more tobacco forward are The Great Outdoors and Taste of Summer.
    They do a good, milder English blend, Westminster, that is underrated but quite good. It doesn't displace
    965, Nightcap, or Nat Sherman 536, but is a worthy and pleasing blend.

    Molto Dolce is ok, but I like Taste of Summer better because I can actually identify the flavor I'm tasting.

    Blending your aro with a straight otc non aro will help. Drying it well will help it to smoke better. PS Peaches 'n Creme is the only aro I've tried since I was a kid....and it's ok...got some nic kick, and is very smooth with a nice note. I've got two otc's right now and I've mixed them both in some individually. SWR and PA...it works.

    Well... Molto Dolce should certainly accomplish that if anything.

    Light tobacco taste, but it's there relative to most other aromatics:
    C&D Autumn Evening
    Savinelli Cavendish
    Pipeworks & Wilke No.191, Rumcake, and Vermont Maple Cavendish
    Mac Baren Vanilla Cream Flake

    Fuller tobacco taste with an aromatic touch:
    H&H Classic Burley Kake
    Peterson University Flake
    Orlik Golden Sliced
    Pipeworks & Wilke No.5

    Tinner Pipeworks & Wilke is a tobbaconist owned by Carole Burns out of Vermont, she IMHO has the best aro's out there. Vtpipes.com or just search Pipeworks and Wilke, I smoke Carole's blends exclusively a great person to deal with!

    I agree with many posters here - I enjoy many aromatics, but Molo Dolce isn't on that list - sweet steam was all I got. My wife loves the room note of Mac Baren's Mixture Scottish, and it has some nice real tobacco flavor to boot. In fact, she preferred it to the room note of Molto Dolce, and it actually tastes like something.

    Thanks for all the responses, I'll continue to monitor the thread for new suggestions. I think I will take Shain's advice and go ahead and try it. I've also placed in my cart several of the other suggestions made by you guys. Thanks for all of the suggestions!

    If I could only choose one blender's product to smoke (a horrible thought), after GL Pease it would be Pipeworks & Wilke. And they don't even make a VaPer. Yes, Carole is that good. While I favor her American English blends*, if aromatics are what you go for, Pipeworks & Wilke should be very high on your must-try list.

    (*give me one good VaPer, maybe a Fillmore or Escudo, and I could smoke those American English blends forever. No.5, Pipemaker's Choice and the amazing Bestmake) [edit: ok, now I'm thinking of all the other VaPer blends I would miss.. but you get the point]

    And no, I don't work in marketing for Pipeworks & Wilke.. they won't even let me into Vermont...

    There was a review on here about Molto that was well written by romeowood. He suggested mixing it with Blackpoint, which I tried and was a big fan of. By itself, it does have a taste. That taste is sweet and not to my liking, but the mixing was awesome!
