Erinmore Mixture Pipe Tobacco Tin

This is a recent and current Orlik produced tin.

The tin aroma is sweet tobacco with a fruity type essence. It smells familiar, but I can not place it. It kind of reminds me of a tropical fruitiness. The moisture level is a bit on the moist side. I recommend some drying time before smoking. I loaded up the pipe and proceeded to the charring light.

On the charring light:
Flavor: Tobacco flavor with quite a bit of sweetness to it. There is also an indistinguishable, fruity like flavor that I can not place. I also picked up on a little bit of sharpness on my palate from the Virginia tobaccos.
Aroma: A sweet tobacco aroma with some hints of the fruity like flavoring.

At the beginning of the smoke, I taste the sweet tobacco flavor accompanied by a light hint of the fruity flavoring. I still can not really describe what the flavoring is. The closest that I can come would say a tropical type of fruitiness. The flavoring is not over powering at all and is actually pretty subtle, but it is noticeable. There is also a rich earthiness to the flavor that reminds me of the body of black coffee. Don’t misunderstand me; it does not taste at all like black coffee, it just has a rich, earthy backbone to it that reminds me of the body of black coffee. This flavor profile lasted from beginning through to the end.

Erinmore Mixture is a decent blend that smoked relatively cool. It also smoked dry and didn’t leave a goopy mess in the pipe. While it didn’t bite me, I could tell that if it was pushed too hard that it might have the potential to do so. This is a light aromatic blend that relies on quality Virginia tobaccos as its base where you can actually taste the tobacco during the smoke with the flavoring used to enhance the flavor.

This is a blend that never really jumped out at me and while I would maybe smoke it on occasion, it will not make it into any sort of regular rotation for me. If you are a regular smoker of aromatics, you may really enjoy this blend. I Recommend it.

    Nice review, cheers for it. I have a tin of the flake open. Quite similar, but it really packs a nicotine punch. Which is pretty nice.

    So, it’s a light, fruity, high quality aromatic. That’s what I got out of your review, Bob. Is it kind of a typical “Danish-style” tobacco? Your description reminds me of Stanwell tobaccos.

    Thanks for the review, Bob. I can’t recall how many times I’ve threatened to buy this stuff, but something else always caught my eye. Now that I’ve begun exploring the quality aromatic tobaccos, maybe this will command a little more attention from me. Again, thanks for the write-up and the pix.

    @ Kevin
    Yes, your summation is accurate. While I didn’t really dig this blend too much, that doesn’t mean that it is a bad blend. We are not going to love every single blend that we smoke whether it is a high quality blend or not. Some people may really like it and should try it for themselves.
    And Yes, I would call this a typical “Danish Style” tobacco blend.
