Nice smooth and reminds me of peach cobbler. A good bourbon helps to bring the flavor out.

It's ok. Mild taste, but smells great.
I would have loved more flavor on the tongue. Room note is nice though. Had to let it dry a bit before it would light consistently, but not unusually so.
4 out of 5
Decent
Pretty good. Not too strong on the sweetness or aromatics. It doesn’t stay as well lit as “bootlegged,” does but still makes for a decent summer smoke.
5 out of 5
Best aro.
Nice smell people ask what is it not even lit, Puffed the first day it arrived a few times it was nice. Forgot about for 2 weeks pulled it back out.....Oh yes great smoke now. This will be my aromantic from now on.

Give it a try
A very good summer smoke. The peach is noticeable without being overly sweet. Its a nice change up from the English/Balkans I usually smoke.

Stanwell melange
Since my house is not air conditioned, the tobacco turns to sludge in the summer. Melange is my go-to because it's in a little tin. By the time it gets too wet, the tin is empty.

Stan well Melagne
It is the only tobacco my husband will smoke. He says it is smooth, not harsh and he likes the flavor. I like the delicious aroma.

Fuzzy Peach Awesomeness
I thought I would try this out and I was pleasantly surprised. The moist mix needed to dry for a day or two before i could get a good taste on a long burn. But the peach is there and not overbearing. I will order this again for the rotation.

Good smoke for the price.
Good room note. Nice burn. Ready to smoke right out of the tin. Will probably buy again.
5 out of 5
WOW!!!! Better then I thought.
I loved it!!!, I can taste the peach and love every second of the smoke. I'm most definitely putting it in rotation. Plan on adding a dash to moon trance and seeing how well they pair.

Great blend!
I love this blend as an occasional departure from my regular tobacco; it has great taste, great room, and no bite. If I did not enjoy alternating tastes so much, this could become my ONLY tobacco.
5 out of 5
my number one favorite!
I have sampled hundreds of different blends, and NONE tops this one. Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding comes close - at twice the price! This Melange has a great flavor, wonderful can aroma, and a very pleasant room. Add to that the slow burn it gives, and you just cannot beat it!

Peach Bliss
I'm new to pipe smoking in general and can say this is one of the better peach pipe tobaccos I have tried! very smooth and I find no bad after taste!
5 out of 5
Great stuff
Probably the best aromatic I’ve tried. Love the flavor way it smokes and room note. No bite. Is great flavors.

Fuzzy schnapps
Yes, it's definely soft and fuzzy. This taste more like schnapps than of peaches. There is a mild sweetness, less than what the tin smell would lead you to believe. I like the Appalachian Berry alot, and thought this would be a peachy version, it is not. It's not terrible, and you may enjoy this light mild smoke with some sweet tea. I blend it with other fruity blends I don't care for to make a fruit bowl for entertainment purposes. Room note is good.
5 out of 5
Nice Change of Pace!
I usually smoke heavier English/Balkan blends, but I like an aromatic as a change of pace. The peach aroma and flavor is quite subtle, but the overall smoking experience is pleasant. Easy to pack, easy to light, easy drawing, no bite, no gurgle, smokes cool, and has an ample mouthful of smoke.

My new #2
Stanwell Melange is currently my second favorite pipe tobacco. It smells amazing in the can, is mellow to smoke, while still having a nice flavor and note. It's the first thing I've smoked that was buttery. Very pleasant. Keep in mind I'm still new to the hobby, so I have many more tobaccos to try.

Meh
The Fuzzy Schnapps was alright. I've pulled dryer things out of my sink. All the moisture made a mess of my pipe. By the end of the 2 weeks it took me to smoke the can, the flavor had really started to suffer.

Melange wins
The Fuzzy Schnapps was alright. I've pulled dryer things out of my sink. All the moisture made a mess of my pipe.

It smells amazing in the can, is mellow to smoke, while still having a nice flavor and note.

Decided to give it a try.
Not a fan of this one. Taste and smell both light. Kind of has a off putting smell and flavor reminiscent of old lady perfume.

Tasty...not overpowering on the fruit flavor, just a real nice smoke.

Just Peachy
This tobacco is a very good peach flavored tobacco. It has a mild peach taste and burns evenly without any tongue bite. I highly recommend it.

Schnapps
It's pretty good, I'll give it that. Tin and room note is great. But I gave it 4 stars because compared to stanwell melange it doesn't have the absolute best peachy flavor. Everything about it is great but the taste could be a little bit smoother and more flavorful.

Great Room Note
An enjoyable change up from my normal tobaccos with one of, if not the most, pleasant room note.

A good and smooth tobacco. But not what I was expecting. Not my bag of tea.

Great Aromatic
This could very well be an everyday smoke for me! This is an aromatic but it's not to sweet and not sticky at all. Had a great almost apricot flavor. You can't freight train it cause it will bite!
5 out of 5
Mild, tasty smoke
Just received a tin. Really like this stuff! Mild smoke, smells great and stays lit. This is my first try at Ole Shenandoah. Have a tin of the Bootlegger on order. Now if only P&C could get more Appalachian Berry .....
5 out of 5
Highly recomend if you like fruity aromatics.
I really like this tobacco. Great tastes, no bite, nice room note and excellent beard note. I will buy more - eventually.

Sweet, Luscious Taste
I saw this tinned aromatic on the P & C website but hadn't bought it. Recently, I did and was well pleased. Upon opening the tin, I detected a strong apricot aroma. Upon lighting, I tasted a fruitiness in the heavy smoke though not necessarily apricot. If you want a sweet tasting, change-of-pace aromatic, then this wonderful blend is for you.

It was finally in stock
Like so may of the items I want from your store, this one was out for MONTHS. I like Peach and this one was no different.....Like so may aromatics i smoke this one becomes a "normal smoke" when the flavor goes away. I still like it and will buy more when it becomes available....(Like so many other items from your site!)

Just Peachy
I have been looking for a peach flavor tobacco to add to my rotation and had been somewhat unsuccessful, until now. I was beginning to think I would not find one that was worth smoking. The pouch and room note is very good. The tobacco is consistent with Barrel 76, burning slow, with few relights and not even a whisper of tongue bite

Nice early Stanwell
Great smoker, from Pipes & Cigars. Great service, quick delivery!

Smooth
Smooth and a good fruity flavor. I use my church warden to get the coolest smoke and best flavor. I t has a nice, subtle, peach aftertaste.

One of the better Aros I've tried.
Great flavors, tin, and room notes. A light tobacco that can smoke all day. Can bite if you try.. but fairly dry out of the tin and if smoked slowly no issues.

Easy, Smooth Smoke
Very Smooth with deep fruits and mellow taste.

Nice flavorfull aromatic
To all the aromatic lovers this should be on your list, treat it lightly and all the sweet fruit flavors will come thru.

Melange
This is a delicious and flavorful tobacco and is one of my top 5 favorites. It does come a little damp and sticky and I sometimes get some liquid in the pipe stem. Keep your pipes clean and you should have quite a pleasant experience

Melange Intro
What a great find! Excellent aroma! A genuine pleasure every time!
5 out of 5
Very aromatic, really like it
Has a combination of ribbon and flake cut tobaccos with a medium moisture content. This one has both a tin and a room note akin to pecan pie with a touch of coconut to my senses which I really like (tin says apricot, but that doesn't register for me)! It lingers after smoking. A low-mid nicotine hit (great for those of us who aren't after high nic).

quickly becoming a go to smoke.

The mysterious must have Melange!
Fantastic! My tastes are all over the place, from aero to non-aero, and this is by far one of the best aero's I have ever had. The mysterious Melange offers up many intriguing flavours without being too sweet; there is something of an apricot top note to it but there are layers of complexity below that make this a curiously robust aero. Smokes evenly and cleanly, standing out from the crowd in quality and taste.
5 out of 5
Smooth, dry and wonderfully complex
this stuff is awesome. yes it's an aero, but it's not overly wet. The flavor is smooth but wonderfully complex. Pair it with a glass of that hard root beer... whoa! awesome!
