Something outside the box... Sillem’s Black. I just ran some websites and didn’t come across any in stock. Read the reviews and see if it’s something that appeals to you. If so, I have some cellared that I can send you.

As stated. Blue Note. It was all the rage for a while. It is so sweet it probably raises one's blood sugar! Yeah, I succumbed to peer pressure and bought a tin once.

Not an aro smoker, but I'm pretty sure Russ Oulette has blended some winners in this category. Also, Scotty's?

After all, from what I've read, 85% of all blends sold are Aro's.

Smoked Aro's all of my life, mostly BCA and the like, but once I found straight Virginia's a year or so ago, the Aro's have all been thrown out, except for one which I've kept around because I like the pouch aroma. :)

French, eh?
I like HGL from Lane. It was blended for Herman G Lane and is a mix of sweet aromatic and Latakia. Wife approved.

A Forums member sent me a sample of Molto Dolce. I certainly enjoyed trying it, and it lived up to its super-sweet reputation. I did finish off the sample! Mostly I like non-aromatics, or for a change of pace, tobacco forward aromatics.

I’ve followed my sweet tooth quite a bit. Sutlif maple street really hit the mark for me. Molto Bulce was so wet it was almost impossible to keep lit. 1Q. Mixed with MD 50/50 was tasty and that’s how I finished the tin. I also like Mac Baren vanilla cream flake quite a bit. It’s the only tobacco I have a pipe dedicated to.

I'm new to aromatics. I've been smoking Russ O's Match Hickory and Sillem's Blue.
The Hickory is available in bulk on P&C and is inexpensive. Burley and fruity.
The Sillem's is in stock in a few places, only in 100g tins and more expensive. An odd combination of limes, maple and caramel.
Neither is goopy and both respond well to a moderate cadence.

To me Molto Dolce and Creme Brulee are very similar. I don't think I could differentiate between the two in a blind taste test.
I don't smoke them often but when I do, I enjoy them.

Got a real sweet tooth and trying to substitute tobaccos for eating desserts going to be getting some Solani X Sweet Mystery and Cult Blood Red Sky and would like more suggestions thanks for any replies.
How did this work out? If I am smoking a pipe, I am not eating dessert, so there's that. But I don't see smoke as a substitute for sugar or chocolate.

Working real good I haven’t had a sugar loaded dessert in close to a month but have tried some awesome tobaccos. My favs so far Blood Red Moon. City’s Own which is 1Q, RLP6, Kitsilano Cherry Blossom. In that order and I’ve dropped 15lbs.

I don't see smoke as a substitute for sugar or chocolate.
It may be an odd sensation, but I swear I can be satisfied with a good bowl of something with sweetness to it after supper over a dessert if I don't have any.
This is a little late to the party, but Country Squire Old Toby is one of the best aromatics I have found. I bought 4 ounces and smoked through it in no time. It can be a little moist, but I swear, even right out of the bag, it smokes great. I got a real kick out of loading a bowl, lighting it and listening to the slight crackle of moisture as the flame hits some wetter tobacco in the bowl. I smoked it that wet several times and it went right to the bottom on minimum relights.

A generous member sent me a sample of Molto Dolce. I had always somewhat dreaded it, but took the challenge. It truly is a dessert. The tobacco is just a carrier for the sweets, but I enjoyed it as a sort of guilty pleasure. Mostly I'm a non-aro guy, or aromatics that are decidedly tobacco forward. I did pack the pipe but let it dry overnight, so I didn't get gurgles.

Molto Dolce, Solani X Sweet Mystery, and Sillem Black are my next tries, I’ve also got Boswell Raspberry Cream and Black Jack which I quite enjoy. Be interested in hearing any others also thinking about ordering some assorted Country Squire tobaccos.

The sweetest ones I've tried are Rattray's summer blends, 2018 and 2014. I like both, but they are loaded with topping and I had to dry out the 2018,which was fresh. The 2014 was 5 years old and didn't need it.

I don't know how they compare to the ones mentioned above though.

I’ll back Dan Tobacco’s Blue Note. It was the first aromatic that I found that I liked, still smoke it to this day, I just buy it by the pound and it ages great, top dressing doesn’t seem to fade and the base tobaccos are high quality. Really, it’s worth dedicating a pipe to.
