East India Trading Company Cellar Reserve

East India Trading Company's Cellar Reserve is one of the most unique aromatics available.  The base blend of Burley, Virginia and black Cavendish has been kissed with aged rum (anejo) and is finished by adding a touch of Perique which adds depth, a dark fruit note plus a hint of spice. If you're hankering for a great-tasting blend with superb aroma with a nice little twist, you've got to try Cellar Reserve.

a clear winner
East India Trading Cellar Reserve is the clear winner in the RUM PUNCH BOUT. While Peterson's Connoisseur's Choice is a pretty good blend, it tends to bite and lacks the room note of Cellar Reserve.

Great tobacco.
I didn’t know if I would like this tobacco or not. I smoke Half and Half, Stokkobey 52 English, and Frog Morton a lot. So I ordered this and a new pipe to try it. Man O Man, this is a very good tobacco. Fairly moist but it still burns well, and it’s a smooth smoke. I got lucky with this tobacco, will order again.

Ehhhh
Got this in a package deal along with some Peterson connoisseur’s choice, as frankly I prefer it to this blend. This is one of those “not tobacco all casing” blends, and while I respect that’s some people’s preferred taste, I’m not feeling it.

One of my Favorites
This is one of my favorite go to's when I want to indulge my sweet tooth. And one of my favorite rum based aromatics. A little sticky upon opening, needs a little dry time. Tin and room notes are flavorful. A cool smoke with no bite. I also get slight notes of toasted coconut on the finish. The addition of Perique as some additional depth to this blend. Definitely keeping this in my rotation.

Smooth, Flavorful, No bite.
This is a out-of-the-tin moist blend, subtle aroma. I like how smooth and cool it feels. The flavors are light, not over powering against each other. The rum/liquor is the most dominant. I will experiment adding a little Cest LaVie vainilla and I will let you all know how that goes. So far the 2 types of thins that I have order have been excellent choices, which are well described on the label.

A 'must have'.
I loved everything about this tobacco, and almost as importantly my family loved the room note. I will always have a tin or two around.

A hint of Perique adds a spicy nuance to this rum-flavored tobacco
Bought this a three tin sampler, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's fairly mild and great for a daily smoke. It has a hint of Perique to add a little fruit & spice to the rum flavor. An engaging, semi-sweet room note.

Exceptional
Possesses a great flavor and aroma. I'll not smoke anything other than this, Officer's Club, and Royal Challenge.

Wonderful. One of my top 10
Cellar Reserve has become one of my top 10 tobaccos. I was first given a tin as a gift and upon opening it, loved it from the first sniff. Very aromatic and smooth. I love whiskey infused cigars and tobaccos, so this was a fantastic find. Highly recommend it. Can't wait to try the other EITC tins.

Top notch
Reminds me a little of 7 seas regular, but the perique gives a very interesting subtle musk and this blend definitely has a bit of pepper showing through. Add vanilla and caramel tones and it's a deep and complex flavor. Smokes easy and pleases the room. Very, very enjoyable.

Awesome
Still the best I've found "smooth"

Perique pleasantly punctuates the palate with a pinch of pepper.
The Cellar's Reserve was part of a three tin sampler. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and room note. It has a semi-sweet rum taste with a hint of pepper. I came to find out this blend has some Perique, which I believe is what gives it the peppery nuance. I really enjoy this and have bought additional tins. This has also opened my palate to trying new tobaccos blends and venturing into the English blends.

Delicious
I am new to pipe smoking so I had to try several different blends to try to find a smoke I liked. I am a long time cigar smoker so I like a strong smoke with flavor. This blend not only smells great, but smokes very smooth on the tongue. Still looking for a blend I like better than Cellar Reserve.

Surprisingly smooth aromatic
When I opened the tin I was amazed at how wet-gooey it looked and was afraid it would be hard to keep lit. First bowl slow smoked really clean and was very easy to keep lit with slow smoke technique. Copious amounts of smoke that really sets it off for a room note. Love the flavor, a new favorite. Hope it's not out of stock long as I want several more tins.

Top Notch Aromatic Blend
I've been an adherent of the pipe ritual for less than a year. Started off with the more potent English / Oriental blends. While I do enjoy them still, I have a growing fondness for well-executed aromatics. Cellar Reserve is very well done, indeed. The blend is complex, yet mellow and very relaxing. My wife is pleased with the room note. The only minor gripe was the moisture content out of the tin. It required a bit of air time to dry out properly.

Excellent Aromatic Blend
This is a very good blend. The black cavendish really sets this aromatic off. The only problem was it was super super moist. I am more of an english blend smoker but i would recommend this to anyone.

A+
I will start by saying I normally am not a perique lover. Some of the vapers ive tried have jus been a little overpowering in the spice department. So when I saw it in the description I was unsure. I have however been looking for an aro with a bit more depth and flavor. BOOOOOOOM! This is it. The Virginias stay bright, the top note is sweet and delicious with the rum shining brighter than the vanilla and then there is the star of the show..... The subtle PERIQUE? Yes it is just present enough to give and added depth and keep the brain thinking throughout the bowl. It smoked cool, but I'm a controlled smoker. My wife would prefer I smoke CAO in the house but other than that..... Buy it

I'd buy it again.
Great flavor and it burns well for how loaded it is. It's similar in aroma to Ole Shenandoah. I think there is rum flavoring and it all coalesces to a sweet fragrant molasses like aroma.

Of the three, my favorite!
Of the three East India tobaccos, this one is by far my favorite. It has a just right taste and could be an all day choice. I love the aroma upon opening the tin and that starts my mind rushing to fill my pipe and taste its really wonderful flavor. I am not a good one at discussing what flavors constitute this smoke's make up, I just know that for me it tastes great.

One of my favorite aromatics
Excellent, high quality tobacco, good room note and pretty good flavor. I'm not an aromatic smoker regularly but this is a great change of pace when I do.

At last:
Finally, I have found the smoke that I have been searching for after 40 years of pipe smoking. Great aroma, great taste, and burns cool. Even my wife likes the smell and that in it's self is a big plus.

Smokes Well
Good aromatic, smokes really well. A little sweet for my taste, but that's not a reflection on the tobacco and more one of personal taste.

Very Nice
The first whiff when I opened the tin was of the "splash" of rum. I like rum and rum flavoring so that was okay but it is strong. It was also a bit too moist. 20 minutes in the bowl took care of that. I like this. Puff too hard though and it heats up. Lightly sweet and the perique is in there somewhere. All in all an enjoyable smoke. I'd buy it again

Cellar Reserve
Good airomatic, flavorful with mellow tones, but not as flavorful as the Officers Club.

Out of the Cellar, Onto the Pedestal
This stuff is glorious. At first I was a little worried about moisture given that my usual blends that are of the same consistency require a certain amount of drying before a smoke but right out the gate it preformed beautifully with no gurgling. With a more flavorful rum note than I anticipated, the sweetness of the blend definitely shines with a fantastic room aroma that even acquaintances of mine who use vaporizors appreciate. I, myself, couple it with strong beverages like coffee or (more) rum that I can enjoy that I don't have the tongue bite to worry over. Although initially purchased on a whim, Cellar Reserve has become a staple in my pantry and I'm eager to taste the other varieties the East India Trading Company has in their coffers.
Customer Testimonials
I typically steer clear of aromatics, having grown more accustomed to stronger pipe tobacco. I find the flavoring of most aromatics cloying. I usually stick to English, Balkan, straight VA, VA/Perique...you get the idea. However, I love Gurhka cigars. When I saw they released pipe tobacco I thought I would give it a try, if I didn't like it I could send it to a friend and keep the tin. With that being said, I have found a great breakfast smoke. The flavors meld extremely well together and smoked in my Nording Erikson pipe, the smoke was dry and bite-free. I highly recommend this tobacco, the addition of Perique is great, I may even add more in myself. I look forward to possibly trying the other two offerings. I only hope they end up releasing some stronger non-aromatics in the near future.
I really enjoyed this. While I haven't been smoking a pipe long and can't break it down for you, I found this one very pleasant. I wish I could say that about some of the others.
Beautiful smoke! An aromatic with Perique? why not, when I started the bowl it was Rum, Vanilla, and a hint of that Perique, then it changes to smooth caramel like those "caramel creme" candies, this is exactly what i was looking for, i will be buying more tins of this stuff!
Fantastic smoke! There is a rich sweet taste with a wonderful room note. This burns good and not too hot. It is the best "Rum" Aromatic I have ever smoked. If you don't like Perique don't get scared away from this because there is just enough to add a mild and pleasant spice to this wonderful blend. You bet I'll be ordering more of this one!
Sitting here enjoying my second bowl of this truly pleasing tobacco. I bought a tin of this tobacco in addition to some pretty well known blends but keep going back to this because it is really good
My experience with the Cellar Reserve is nothing short of fantastic! I find strong notes of vanilla and caramel radiate into the rum with ease but the rum takes the finish. The overall sweetness, combined with a fruity undertone makes this blend come across as bright, I was expecting it to be a bit dull from the description, Cellar Reserve has been a very pleasant surprise!
