John Cotton's Double Pressed Creme

Here's a first for the rapidly growing John Cotton's Double Pressed series, John Cotton's Double Pressed Creme. What makes it unique is that it's the first member if the lineup with a mellow aromatic note. It begins as a flake tobacco made of Virginia and black Cavendish and then rubbed out. The tobaccos are given time to allow the leaf to re-oxygenate to liven the flavor and to prepare for the next step. Then the tobaccos are pressed again into a crumble cake, so further fermentation can take place. But what really makes the difference is a subtle bit of vanilla to give it a slight sweetness and a pleasant room note. Now you can see what time and pressure can do for an aromatic blend.

Creme is creamy!
Nice flavorful bowl. The vanilla comes through but never produces that acid so typical of an aromatic blend.

One of the best slight aromatic blends available
Currently my favorite tobacco by far. Could easily be an all day smoke except for the price but still worth every penny. A perfect blend and just enough on the aromatic side to give it an almost melt in your mouth, buttery vanilla flavor and I'm not a big fan of vanilla. Highly recommended!!

Would Recommend
I've been curious about the Double Pressed series for a while, but I was sure that my wife would not approve of any of the previous offerings. My personal palette leans toward Virginia, Perique, and Latakia, but my wife prefers that I smoke aromatics. As I'm sure is common among pipe enthusiasts, I'm constantly on the search for blends that we both find appealing. This stuff is great. The topping is not overly sweet, but it provides a lovely room note. I usually rotate my blends so as not to get bored with anything, but I keep coming back to this one before it's place in rotation comes up. Other reviews have spoken more eloquently about the particular flavor nuances, so I'll just leave it here. Will definitely purchase again.

This stuff is fantastic. It's not like any aromatic I've had before. It's not sticky sweet or lack of dimension. Nope, it's super tasty with complexity and dimension. I mean just wow. Personally, I like to switch between English, to Aromatic, to Vaper so that every bowl is new and different, and I don't get so used to one thing that it loses its charm for me. Thus, I always rotate. And let me tell you, this stuff is really good. Not overly sweet. Some sweet flavor yes, but not overly done and is Very complex and interesting. I bought two tins a week ago, and just now placed an order for 4 more. I mean, wow. This stuff is good.

A Pleasant Smoke
The aroma is wonderful vanilla, my first bowl also, tasted good as, the second bowl I discovered other flavor beside Virginia, dark tobacco from Kentucky. I like the long burn, with one or, two lights, this works well during the pipe staying in your mouth while, doing some activity. I decided for the second bowl, to show more appreciation by enjoying the taste because of the delicious aroma, that started at the first light. I like the smell and taste which, brings a memory of pipe tobacco being really worth it.

Pleasant taste
This is a nice blend and don’t let the name catch you up into thinking too much about a sugar-type taste

Pressure + Time + Aromatic = Very novel and unique blend
John Cotton's Double Pressed Creme is such a marvel, but be warned you need some experience to really appreciate it. This is a significantly superior product to others attempting to incorporate fermentation and pressure into their blends. It's simply done right and the flavor as well as the experience are testament to this. Just make sure you dry only the portion you'll be smoking for about 30-45 minutes (break it apart prior to drying). Pack light cause it expands like crazy in the bowl and can burn very hot. Smoke very slow and you will get such a unique aromatic flavor it's hard to describe, like plain effervescent and slightly tangy Kefir mixed with vanilla ice cream. Room note is ok-ish for guests but note Mrs. approved
