    As of right now i have only had my far share of aromatics and I have really liked Sutliff Private Stock Molto Dulce and Mcellands Town Topic. What are your favorites and what would you suggest?

    I really like H&H Vermont Meat Candy

    I have really been digging the 4th Generation 1897 as well as the new Borkum Riff LTD 22 fruit and vanilla blend.

    It's a 3 way tie for me. Hobbits Weed, Boswells Berry Cobbler, and a local Hazelnut Blend that I'm still trying to determine what it really is. My local B&M doesnt blend so I'm dying to find out what this stuff really is.

    My all-time favorite aro right now is Wilke Rumcake (a blend that goes back nearly 100 yrs, blended by Pipeworks & Wilke).

    My other fav of theirs is Wilke 191 (another blend that goes way back). These are really worth trying. Carole (who runs the place) also offers a sampler pack where you can try several blends to get a feel for them. IMHO, these are the finest aros out there today.

    I also like Newminster Blends: French Champagne and Danish Black. Both of these are inexpensive, not the least bit goopy, smell heavenly and taste great.

    I agree with Six. Carole Burns, master blender at Pipeworks & Wilke, makes some of the finest aromatic tobaccos in the world. I've smoked 5-6 of them, all are terrific. Off the top of my head, I'd add Nut Brown Burley, Rumcake, and Bleeker Street to Six's list.

    1Q won't set the world on fire, but there's a reason why many of us here like it. 1Q is the best selling bulk pipe tobacco in America; itis also hard to beat for a mild, innocuous, decent quality with a great room note, that burns cool, without goop and 1Q is a great value.

    While some say every aromatic will "ghost" a pipe, it's been my experience that I can smoke out the ghost flavors in a pipe with a couple bowls of Carter Hall or the like.

    There are rare exceptions -- some aromatics, including all Lakelands, are tenacious.

    Everyone should at least try a Lakeland blend and Grousemoor is a great choice for those taking a first venture into the world of Lakeland essence.

    I will remind everyone that Samuel Gawith Grousemoor is a Lakeland and as such, Grousmoor will ghost a pipe and likely pose a challenge to remove, so, like any Lakeland, it would be a good idea to dedicate a pipe to it, or try it in a MM Cob.

    Thats premium baccy. Now if you said Smokers Pride or Super Value, I may judge you. But with the volume they sell obviously someone likes it. Even still who cares. Smoke what you like.

    i bought some "meat candy" and was really not all that impressed, not as much flavor as I had hoped. Jarred it up and will give it another shot down the road. Right now I am still trying to find a flavorful aro.

    Ive been moving away from aromatics as of late but there are still a few that I enjoy. My latest favorites are:

    MacBaren 7 Seas line
    Butternut Burley
    1Q
    Apple by Middleton
    Cornell and Diehl Autumn Evening
    Any of the Boswell aromatics

    Good to know - I haven't heard from anyone who's tried it.

    As a former tobacco purist snob who has been trying to find a good aromatic, I liked:

    Low Country Santee -- apple-ish.
    4noggins Three Blind Moose -- butterscotch.

    Peterson Christmas blend (always full of Christmas flavours and spirit). Surprisingly Holger danske black and bourbon is one of my favorite tobacco blends. It is both mild and full of flavour.

    I really like the flavor of a few of the Boswell aro's like Christmas Cookie, Penn Dutch treat, Berry Cobbler and Raspberry Cream. Unfortunately they all dry my mouth out something fierce. It must be the small amount of pg because they are not super wet aro's. I don't have much experience with aro's but the Boswell's actually taste like they smell.

    I know some people do not consider this to be an aro, but I think Peterson University Flake is a good one. Nice plum flavor in the background of a quality VA flake. I like it after dinner as an aperitif.

    It's worth trying. The maple flaovr is wonderful(though I'm a bit biased as I love maple), and the bacon part isn't all that bacony. It doesn't have an artificial bacon flavor. The bacon flavor come from hickory smoked burley. So it does have that smoked flavor similar to bacon , but it doesn't taste 100% like bacon. I really wanted to try it out, and was given a sample. I was pleasantly surprised. It's actually really good.

    Harris, Boswell is testing a new Pea Soup aromatic. You should try it. Apparently, it is better than the real thing.

    Definitely 1Q but I also love Mac Baren's 7 Seas line as well as Peterson's yearly Christmas offering. McClelland's Premium Aromatics line is another good line of quality good tasting tobaccos as well.

    W.O. Larsen Signature Vintage Mixture, Amphora Full Aroma, Boswell's Berry Cobbler and Christmas Cookie, Samuel Gawith Grousemoor and C&D Autumn Evening. I do, smoke full bowls of W.O. Larsen Signature Vintage Mixture, Amphora Full aroma, and Samuel Gawith Grousemoor but I rarely smoke full bowls of the others. Usually mix them in with a bright or red Virginia like Dan Tobacco Hamborger Veermaster, Dunhill Light Flake, Samuel Gawith Best brown and the likes. Some times 50%, some times as little as a pinch just to add a hint of aroma to a fine fine Virginia.

    I have too many favorites aromatics to name 'em all, but I'd recommend almost anything from Uhles, LJ Peretti, Milan Tobacconists, pipeworks & wilke, or Boswell.
