    I've got an itch. What's the sweetest non-aromatic you can think of?

    Capstan Blue is pretty sweet.

    Do you want sweet because of the casing on a categorical non-aro, or just sweet as in a pure unadulterated Virginia?

    Not sure if Capstan Gold is considered an aro.

    Casings and toppings are okay. I was thinking along the lines of what would "typically" be considered an aro but I realize that is a very blurry line.

    It might be easier to ask to exclude added fruit flavors, rum & whiskey, etc. but sugars would be okay.

    I have been wanting to try some of the Gawith and Hoggarth cavendish. I believe it is unflavored but through the production process it should be pretty sweet. If anyone has tried it, I would love to hear it. I have had it in Top Black Cherry and Black and Brown where it is flavored and quite good.

    Orlik’s Strong Dark Kentucky has a licorice casing which makes the Kentucky very sweet. Stokkebye’s Luxury Twist Flake has a coconut casing to their Cavendish process which is really sweet also.

    I never look for sweet in a non-aromatic, so I don't have a recommendation. When I want sweet, I don't want it upstaging the tobacco, so I look for aromatics that are tobacco forward, often more in the whiskey, bourbon, liqueur, rum areas.

    I find when smoked very slow, C&D's Crooner has a nice sweet undertone.

    I'll second Capstan Blue. Marlin Flake is sweet as well. OGS also.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Like others have said before me, lighter Va's tend to smoke "sweetly". Capstan Blue is my personal favorite tobacco so I recommend it highly with every chance I get. Orlik Golden Sliced is another very bright and sweet Va.

    Rattray's Va blends are very unique but also tend to be snatched up quickly and not very "available". Marlin Flake, Hal O' the Wynd, and Old Gowrie are all very nice.

    For available blends Capstan Blue is a great choice. I get a lot of sweetness from Solani 633 and it is available as well.

    +1 on Marlin Flake, very sweet indeed. Also Hearth & Home Anniversary Kake, which I believe has a very light rum topping

    Its new to me, but liking it...C & D Winchester.

    Red Virginia and unsweetened black Cavendish (Kentucky Green River Burley) are mixed in a blend that is reminiscent of the old Rattray's 'Dark Fragrant.'

    I don't really care if the cup is half full or half empty, I just want something to sip on.

    retrogrouch I am a big fan of the GH Black Cavendish. I like it straight but, it is great for blending as well. It has a light very light sweetness and is the mellowest of smokes. I like it because it is a VA cavendish (I am not big on the burley candied cavendishes). shanez besides recommending this, Rattray’s Black Virginia might be worth a try. It is similar to the GH but a little naturally sweeter.
