Still fairly new to the world of pipes and tobacco, but I didn't really care for this one (which came with the Dr Grabow starter kit). It seemed to be covered with a tar or resin gunk that needed to be washed off after handling. Then it would leave a pool of the resin in the bowl after use.
Maybe there are many tobaccos like this, and maybe this is fairly normal, but it just seem strange to this newbie...; My wife also commented on the aroma, which wasn't flattering.
I liked this one though it did have a oily texture and took a bit of cleaning on the pipe after smoking. It was everything it advertised with regards to taste, it was easy to taste the caramel, vanilla with a hint of honey. I would recommend this to anyone with a sweet tooth, a great morning smoke with a cup of coffee.
Got this as part of my starter kit and it is without doubt my favorite. Rich creamy notes of vanilla. Magnificent room note as well as right out of the tin. Very wet, and you are likely to need at least 2 more lights, likely more after the char light. If you are after an aromatic with rich, thick smoke, this is the one for you. This is my goto favorite, and better than the bork rum Riff cherry.
This is one of the best pipe tobaccos I have tried. Smells great, when I light up outside someone always asks what brand are you smoking, even non-smokers because it seems the aroma does not bother anyone. If you have not tried it yet, please give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Taste is amazing, smells like candy. The perfect balance between aroma and tobacco flavor in my opinion. My can came a bit too moist but it smokes well nonetheless!
....This blend is smooth, rich and very pleasing to the olfactory senses! Because the tobacco is dense and oily it helps to let a little sit out before packing the bowl, plus keep a pipe cleaner handy to swab during your smoke. When used with my 9mm filter pipe I pretty much had to change the filter after each smoke. I will be purchasing this tobacco again!
1st thing , let it breath and dry 20-30 minutes. Its a great light flavorful smoke with wonderful room note. I tried it on a suggestion and ordered 4 more tins to cellar some of it. It is sticky and wet if you dont dry it. First time I smoked it was way too much gurgle in the pipe. After that its one of my favorites and will be in my stable for a long time. I am a new pipe smoker for transparency sake
Very smooth smoking experience. I have already ordered more.
This Is, By Far, My Favorite Pipe Tobacco. It Does Get Hot If Your Not Careful With It, As It Is Pretty Heavily Cased, But Other Than That, No Complaints. I Love The Flavor And The Wife Loves The Room Note. What More Could You Ask For?
Sutliff Private Stock Molto Dolce is the most relaxing mild smoke I've came across in years. And I would recommend it to
any pipe smoker and do. And of course CI makes it even better with the price and ease of buying.
Love this stuff, nice and sweet, but not the tangy fruity sweet - and no tongue bite, which is great because I am a fast puffer! This is like dessert for your pipe!
I love this stuff!!! Smooth and silky with a hint of vanilla and caramel and NO BITE!!! I could smoke this all day every day!! Thanks CI for stocking this product.
For a flavored Tobacco this really great stuff. Gonna buy a lot more of it. Definitely recommend.
An absolute favorite of mine! Little bit of sweetness and a mild smoke. This is a must have in my stash.
