C&D produced a quality aromatic with Autumn Evening
As I understand, this is a blend that takes significant time for them to make. As others have stated, this can be wet out of the tin and can stand drying out. However, if you choose to smoke it right away, do yourself a favor and pack it just a little more loose than you would normally. If you tend to freight train your smoke, this blend will run hot and bite. If you sip it right on the edge of going out, the flavor pallet is amazing. I can taste the sweetness of the red Virginia Cavendish on the initial draw, then the maple blossoms. Not a sticky maple syrup, but a nice buttery maple that leaves a wonderful room note. All that said, I don't know if maple is what I could smoke all day, but this blend certainly makes for a magnificent digestif.

Good stuff
Nice and mellow. Nice room note. Definitely would continue to smoke this. Pleasant enough to smoke inside without being overwhelming to others

Decent aromatic.
It' good and it's strong. Definitely felt lightheaded from the "vitamin N" . There was no tongue bite whatsoever. I used a briar. Not an everyday smoker. The maple is there when you open the can and even in the flavor if you "sip it". The beard note as I call it is making me crave French toast with maple syrup and maple smoked bacon. Not bad, the 8 oz tin will probably last me a long while as I prefer less of a nicotine buzz.

It’s too strong for me.
It’s too strong for me. Probably the cavendish that I don’t like. It’s not on my list to buy again.

I wish I had a better Autumn Evening
I wish I could say my experience with this blend was pleasant, but it was not. The Autumn Evening blend sounded so good to me that I wanted to try it based on the reviews, but when I received it after it was back ordered for so long I couldn't wait to try out. I open the box took out the blend it smelled great but it looked old (gray Looking) not like the pictures shows and was in a million little pieces like it had been the last of the barrel. Then when I smelled it in the plastic bag it didn't quite smell like it did when I first opened the box. I give it a chance and smoked it and it was the worst tobacco I've ever smoked. I feel like I wasted my money. I dought it will ever try it again, but I could have gotten old left over tobacco which tells me something about the quality control. Which is disappointing because I really Like Pipes & Cigars.

Love Autumn Evening...
This is my go to. Smooth. I just wish P&C would work on their delivery. Very slow and last time my order went on backorder no email or feedback. To their credit they made good with a substitute.

Losing Appeal Over Time
Previous C&D product purchases were tastier and had stronger room notes than recent orders. Wondering if the casings have been decreased on some of C&D's blends. Many aren't what they used to be.

Soapy taste?
I gave it a 3 stars because at the beginning the tobacco was on point. A yummy taste of cinnamon and maple on the exhale. This was very pleasing at first, but with weeks going by and storage in my humid garage here in FL, I feel the taste has changed to a soapy not very pleasing taste. I will research if humidity has an effect on tobacco. Not sure. however, it was stored in a canning jar.

Out between 2nd and 3rd.
Mehhh... After 3-4 months in cellar it did same thing as when I first tried this blend. It has amazing aroma in opening jar, and loads very easy. (a fairly small cut, you could probably roll this in papers and smoke) It tastes really good right after lighting and progresses like it will be a home run. Then, about 5+ minutes into bowl it begins to turn a bit bitter. I think it may be a build up of a baccy aftertaste. It's not just a burn from smoking too hard, but an unpleasant taste. Been a very long time, but reminded me of cigarette after taste. It's good enough that I'll keep it around and smoke from time to time, but I won't purchase anymore. (I may use an ounce to try a frankenblend?)

Not yet.
Based on the reviews, I'm wondering if I got a bad batch. Aroma in the tin is delicious. Warm, rich, maple tones with maybe a splash of chocolate. Not sure how this is classified as a "coarse cut." It was cut so fine, it was reminiscent of opening a can of Copenhagen. The tobacco felt great between the fingers--light and silky. That's where the good ends. Stuff lights easy. Burns like paper in a brush fire. A bowl lasted like 10-15 minutes. Taste is sort of like maple at first, but then burns so fast, it tasted like a generic cigarette. Room notes are ok. Not sure if there's better batches out there, but based on this one, I was very disappointed.

Delivers on flavor
Full disclosure; I am not a regular aromatic smoker. The description intrigued me, a “rare aromatic that actually tastes the same as it smells.” They are right. When first lit I immediately thought, this is why I don’t smoke aromatics but if you give it time and sip, I assure you that it lives up to the description. It does have an aftertaste, not sure if chemical is fair but the smoke is on the acrid side when exhaled even gently thru your nose. Not tongue bite but something is going on. After finishing the bowl 10 minutes ago, I still get the sensation of maple. I’m surprised it’s so tangy but that may just be the combustion of the additions. It’s not going to make me give up my full English or Navy styles but it delivers on its promise. I was leaning towards 3 stars but since I’m not a strict aromatic guy, I think 4 is honest. I will smoke this again albeit occasionally. Smoked in a fresh cob, I won’t do aromatics in any briar. Btw, I’m not a complete aromatic snob, Vermont Meat Candy (yes!), EITC Officer’s Club & Molto Dolce are three aromatics that are in my 30+ favorites rotation, usually enjoyed in the cooler months. Merry Christmas to all!

a new favorite
This is a blend I was hoping I would like, and it exceeded my expectations! A nice sweet maple flavor that holds and even smooths out around mid pipe. The room note is pleasant, if a bit overpowering at times. I will keep this one in my rotation, c and d rarely let's me down

Lovely tobacco
I have smoked maple blend tobaccos all my life but have never found one that wouldn't burn my mouth up until now. Autumn Blend has a wonderful aroma and taste. Will definitely buy again and again.

A bit too strong for my taste.
I didn't care for this tobacco at all. I didn't taste any maple whatsoever, just a very strong generic tobacco flavor. I usually try to give a tobacco two or three bowls before I make my final judgement, but I only made it through half a bowl of this blend before I starting feeling sick from the high nicotine content. Those who are more into strong pipe tobaccos and cigars may find this satisfactory, but as far as autumn type blends go I enjoyed Tsuge's Mystery of Autumn much more.
5 out of 5
One of the most acheivable aromatic flavorings is maple, however many blenders rely on poor base tobacco and alot of casing which result in a poor blen that bite the tongue. I looked into almost all maple blends out there but this one is the only one i could taste real maple in. Given fact the flavor will be gone about 2/3 to 1/2 down but you will be left with quality red virginias. Everybody liked the room note more than any other tobacco however it will be kinda stale if smoked alot in an enclosed space, but then again isnt all tobaccos do that? You owe it to your self if you like aromatics to try this one. Just sip slowly so you dont burn your tongue or worse not taste the maple.

Wow. I know this one has been around for a while but it's the first time I've tried it. I now have a new tobacco in my favorites rotation. This is fantastic!

As Legendary As "The Great Pumpkin". A Fantastic Blend!
Gives the room a maple syrup note but to the smoker, you smell pumpkin spice notes. This is not an everyday blend but when you take a special moment alone for a smoking experience you'll long remember, this is a winner!

I'm not a big fan of aromatics. Except for this one. Liked it so well, I got it twice.

Not For Me
I was really looking foward to this blend after reading so many fantastic reviews of it, but for me the excellent tin note did not transform to the smoke. I love maple but found this blend to burn hot and somewhat bitter. Maybe its just me.......

Good Aromatic
I really like this one and suspect I will be buying more. Good taste, and good room note. I know this because my wife just asked what I was smoking and she told me well this one does not smell like you are burning a stump in here. That is as good a recommendation as you are going to get.

Can this be beaten?
This was my first non-OTC aromatic and it is amazing! The taste and room note are very close, but as the person smoking it, I appreciate that the taste isn't as sweet as it smells. I tried other high quality aros after this, and when I came back to it my impression didn't change at all. The tin note is very powerful, like caramel ice cream dip. But the smoke is perfectly balanced. Take your time and you will be rewarded. This will be my mainstay aromatic for a long long time.

Definitely recommend.
Very smooth, awesome flavor.

Not bad
I was looking for something comparable to 1-Q but doesn't quite cut it for me. As an aromatic it's pretty good but that's about where it ends with me

Smells and smokes great, wish it had stronger taste!
Smells just like pancake syrup, both in the tin and as you smoke. Taste isn't very strong, but I'm new at this and I guess I'm still getting used to finding the taste in tobaccos as I smoke. I like that it's virginia based. Isn't too wet, although whenever I buy aromatics I leave the lid off for a half hour to an hour to let them dry out a bit, don't know if this is a great practice but I'm pretty sure I saw it somewhere and it seems to be working for me.

Love it
Now that's a real maple tobacco. I will definately reorder. Pouch aroma and room aroma very close. I think I've tried every maple blend there is and this at the top of list.

Autumn Evening
simply delicious! Smokes cool and tastes sweet. It has more of a sugar maple flavor in the room note. It's my first time trying Autumn Evening, and I'm sure I'll continue with this blend. I've already gotten a lot of compliments from others around me about the sweet room note.

Good maple blend.
Typically I smoke English blends, but every now and then I break into an aromatic or two. My normal choice for aro would be McClelland Townsman Cavendish Blue(Maple), but after reading reviews on C&D Autumn Evening, I figured I'd give this a shot. When I smoke aromatics, I prefer lightly cased and sweet. Similar to the TCB this is lightly cased, but the maple sure comes through well. The tin note is just outstanding. As soon as I popped the tin, AE was ready to go. Not to wet, and not too dry, just right on the money. I found nothing bad to say about this blend, and even better it comes in bulk to save a few pennies. If you're an aromatic smoker, or like me, like it here and there, and like maple, give this a go, you won't be disappointed.

More robust than you'd expect from an Aro
This is a great tobacco. Most of my aromatics are a little more wet. This is a dryer smoke--one of the few that I can smoke all the way to the bottom of the bowl without even needing to knock out the ash--not that I mind knocking out some ash. I will say that it is a harsher and more robust tobacco than one might expect of an aromatic--I don't inhale, but this made me cough just when it hit the back of my throat the first time I tried it. Also, the nicotine content is actually a little higher than one might expect.

Very pleasant smoke. The hint of maple is nice.

A great intermediate aromatic
This is a great blend for those who want to like aromatics but find that most of them contain a weak underlying tobacco with all the focus on the flavoring. Autumn Evening's base of Red Virginia's should please the discriminating non aromatic smoker while at the same time giving a smooth flavorful straight up maple taste and smell . Be warned though, this blend might be a bit strong for some of those who are used to milder tobaccos.

Nice Natural Tasting Sweetness
I bought this late last winter and I'm more a Burley man than Virginia but finally decided to open it. The tin note is nice and smells like sweet maple. It has a pleasant room note that has a fresh maple smell too. I really like this one. It is not overly flavored but I can taste the maple. There is a very pleasant natural sweetness that I just love. I will have to buy this one again!

Outstanding blend!
This has become a regular blend for me and have even given samples to friends who enjoyed it as well. Will definitely be ordering more as it has found it's way into my top ten tobaccos.

Autumn Evening
This is my favorite aromatic. I purchase this every Autumn. The smell out of the tin, strong maple, reminds me of being around my family when I was young. It reminds me of a cold autumn day, contemplating the stars and moon. It brings me in line with smelling the leaves in the ground and the distant smell of wood burning from chimneys. This is more than a tobacco for me and in fact all my tobaccos bring specific memories to mind. I would recommend this to anyone interested in an aromatic which tastes as great as it smells to everyone else. Not too sweet and refreshingly creamy. Pipes and Cigars have also done a fantastic job on their website in my opinion. I've had great experiences and it seems their customer service end is tight. 5 stars. Don't even have to think about it. It just feels right.

Long time pipe smoker (from 16 until the present-- almost 70)
I really enjoyed the maple aroma and the smooth taste. It stays lit from beginning to end with no bite. My wife also enjoyed the subtle aroma!

Outstanding product! This tobacco has great room note, so much so that my wife loved the aroma and decided to start smoking this tobacco. So we got her a pipe that she likes. Also the bag note was great. This tobacco arrived in very fresh condition and shipping was fast.

Not buying the hype...
I am not buying into the hype on this one. Don't get me wrong, it is well constructed, smokes nice and the pouch note and room note were exceptional. One of the few tobacco's that had the right moisture level when I received it. But the taste was a bit of a let down - "Tastes the same as it smells" is the promise - I just didn't pick that up. A good tobacco - just not what I was expecting.

This is a fantastic tobacco. No bite, great taste and a wonderful room note that everyone around me loves, including my wife. It has become my every day tobacco it's a winner!

Customer Testimonials
Mine was a little dry out of the bag bought in bulk. Good quality leaf but has a buttery maple casing that sticks to everything, clothes, hands and pipe interiors. I smoke this in its own dedicated cob with a few Nording Keystones in the bottom of the pipe as a goop absorber. This is an above average aromatic sweet tasting tobacco.
I was very excited to smoke this blend. The tin note was very strong and very maple syrupy. I asked a few friends to smell and they commented "smells like breakfast!" In the bowl, it pleased the nose just as much. However, don't expect this blend to have a strong maple flavor - it was pretty light compared to the smell. It also left a bad aftertaste (chemically, ashy, bitter) in my mouth which wasn't pleasant. Overall not too bad, worth a try, but I'm probably not purchasing it again!
Despite the positive reviews, sadly I was a bit disappointed with this one. Maybe it has to dry out a bit or something, but honestly, though it initially tasted like a pretty good vanilla yogurt, it sort of turned into a bitter, ashy flavor about a third down the bowl. I'll give a couple more goes, but until then my opinion will stand.
C&D's Autumn Evening was surprising to me in that the maple topping and the aromatic-ness of the tobacco was not that overwhelming. It was VERY subtle. The natural flavor of the tobacco came through well. This tobacco is perfect for this Fall/Winter season. A great smoke that even non-aro smokers would like!
Absolutely love this blend, and smoke it year round!
This leaves a weird chemical aftertaste. I couldn't smoke the whole bowl.
I absolutely love this, will buy again.
Love this blend! The flavor was there for me and I truly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this one if you like aromatics.
I was referred to this tobacco by Russ himself when I inquired about a tobacco with a good room note. I was not disappointed when I opened the bag and smelled the maple right away. I smoked this in my Peterson that I just cleaned two days prior with Jack Daniels whiskey and the flavor was amazing. Very maple with a room note of maple syrup that left my fiance saying "That smells really good." I will be coming back for more of this.
If you are after a maple flavored tobacco, then this is it. i dont know how many people find it bland or taste bad (to each his own) but i tried all what the market have to offer in regard to maple excluding maple town cavendish by mccleland and pipe work and wilky maple? and i can safely say this is the most prominent. the virginia quality is good as well but is mainly masked by casing. get some and get pancakyy about it!
