Big fan
CAO's Moontrance is a tin I ordered after reading some "give these a try" threads. This stuff is a home run. Smells great opening the tin, smells great while smoking. About halfway through the bowl the fruity flavors show up just under the vanilla. This is my current favorite smoke. No bite and is friendly to puffer like me

Solid 5 Star Smoke!!
A solid 5 star blend. A most excellent blend of Virgina, Burley, & Cavendish plus aromatic topping that produces a vanilla/caramel nuance for an excellent smoking experience! This smooth, mellow smoke that doesn't bite at all. Burns well and cool right out of the tin. Try it & see what you think. I believe you will enjoy it Nice late evening smoke that kind of makes you feel like staring at the moon.

It's a very smooth tasty smoke at the end of the day. Great room note and smooth cool taste to enjoy as a night cap or way to unwind at the end of the day. I enjoy it very much.

Happy New Pipe Smoker
I've just begun smoking a pipe and having learned how to properly pack a pipe and avoid (mostly) the tongue bite, I've really enjoyed my sampler pack, as have those around me. Excellent collection, fast delivery and great price. I'l order again.

Happy accident
This is the most magical blend I have tasted in years...This was sent to me in place of another that was out of stock. What a happy accident. I sat there looking at the tin and was being my old skeptical self, and was unimpressed. Then I opened it. The smell was unlike any thing I have encountered. It was beautiful. Then I tried it a bowl..I used a medium tamp. It was awesome..I tasted several fruits in beautiful balance. Smoke it cool and the flavors will dance in and out in a really beautiful way.. No bite, with a stunning room note. When I smoke it at the bar everyone just loves the room note..This mixture my friends is destined to become a classic and will remain on my order form for years to come. One simply has to try this to be an experienced pipe tobacco smoker. But I think my description falls utterly short of the real experience..Try it.

New to the pipe world, but this is a forgiving tobacco while trying to get the hang of it. Great flavor and long burn... As long as I remember its a pipe, slow down... Its not a cigar. Wife loves the room note.

Great flavor
Very smooth smoke with noticeable yet not overpowering vanilla. Somewhat moist out of tin. I like to let it dry about 15-30 minutes before packing.

I will be buying this one again when I run out. Smooth sweet taste, great room note. Not as hard to light as Molto Dolce, but similar in taste. And I love Molto Dolce too.

Save your money
after a couple of bowls I found it very bland. I can't taste any of the vanilla bourbon at all and there is a slight hint of I guess exotic fruits. Wouldn't buy again or recommend it.

Great light taste
Very nice tobacco.... The flavor of the fruit and vanilla is nice and light with good quality tobacco that follows. The flavor intensity is consistent throughout the entire bowl that burns nicely. No bite from this and do recommend...

CAO Moontrance
Its not the same taste as the cigar thats for sure. Pleasant though don't get me wrong. Still very flavorful, just not as strong. Room note is a solid 3.5 out of 5. Would keep a tin around for some variety, but might not be my go to.

Good Stuff
my brother in law shared a can of Moontrance, I was pleased and surprised! I really enjoyed the experience, I have since bought a can and a can of Eileen's Dream which is also a nice smoke. I have Moontrance in my rotation of aromatics! Try it, I think you will like it!

Tried Moontrance and Eileen's Dream so far. Both meet my taste bud's approval but favor the Moon! Tried Toasted Black Cavendish by Drew and a really good all black sampler called Black Hole Sun and was very impressed with all, so I can't wait to try the CAO Black!
Customer Testimonials
Best damn tasting cigar I have had!
I cannot get enough of this Moontrance. The pipe takes it to another level and the aroma is amazing. It's my favorite aromatic tobacco.
I am a newbie, but the CAO brand is my favorite thus far. This flavor, and Eileen's dream are my two favorites so far. I like how reasonably priced they are considering the quality. PipesandCigars is a great site, always fast shipping and a wide selection. Thanks guys, without you I'd be stuck smoking stale Captain Black from the drug store.
A very enjoyable aromatic. The flavoring doesn't over-power the tobacco and makes for a nicely balanced, light smoke. I've found that the CAO tobaccos, including this one, tend to come out of the tin a little moist and need to be dried out a bit. Even then, Moontrance can produce a bit of a wet smoke if you don't take your time.
My first tin from these guys. Burns cool and rarely needs a re-light, tastes of mostly mild tobacco with little hints of citrus and floral notes, the flavoring takes a back seat and is in no way overpowering or artificial. Tastes best if you take little sips, room note is very pleasant even coming from people who don't like pipe smoke. Definitely worth a try!
