Nice smoke.
It's not bad. Smooth smoke, slight after taste. Burns okay. I like a little more flavor.

Cellar Reserve
My wife bought me the three tobaccos from East India Trading Company, and I love all three! Cellar Reserve could very well be my favorite of the three. Love the aroma, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience smoking this tobacco. I would recommend Cellar Reserve to anyone wanting a great smoke!

with it tasted as good as it smells
great tin note, great room aroma, lacking in flavor and complexity. smokes cool, stays lit, not much bite at all. some people love having a pipe smoker around for the way the room ends up smelling, ill smoke the rest of this tin around them, when i want something to thoroughly enjoy ill reach for other blends.

Lovely!
This one is a winner. The aroma out of the tin is nice and the tobacco is very dark; it looks and smells great. The rum flavoring is enough to be noticeably pleasant, but not overwhelming. The addition of a bit of Perique really works well in this blend as well. I love it! The tobacco was a bit moist out of the tin, so I was worried about how it would burn, but it wasn't an issue at all -- it burns very well. So far I've mostly been smoking this out of one of my cobs, a decision which was rather arbitrary to be honest. But, thus far, I'm really enjoying it. I'll have to try it in one of my briars or hardwoods. But, so far so good!

outdoors smoke
Peterson's Connoiseur's Choice is a pretty good blend. It has a pleasing flavor, but tends to bite if not smoked REALLY slow. Around my house it is an 'outdoors smoke' due to the not so pleasing room note.

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.

One of the Better Aromatics
I like this blend, though I smoke aromatics rarely, I’m glad to have found this one; it’s not coated in flavoring, it is a blend where the flavoring compliments the tobacco, instead of masks the taste of bad tobacco, like many aromatics do.
4 out of 5
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.

Perfect
This is my go to tobacco. It's mild with low nicotine. Nice room note. An all day smoker. No tounge bite. If your a mild fan buy it. Strong tobacco lovers not for you.

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.

Very pleasant and smooth smoking tobacco. Very nice tin & room note.

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

A new favorite
I like a milder blend and this is one of the best. It's now on my rotation list.

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.

Excellent 5 star blend. I love it.

Nice easy smoke.
It's a good smooth smoke for anyone.

This is a true-balance Aromatic Blend.
The maple & rum flavoring (in tin, room note, and bowl) balanced with the citrus, is what makes this a unique and excellent aromatic blend from Peterson.

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.

A smooth and pleasant aromatic with a touch of spice!
This is a well-balanced aromatic (Black cavendish with Red & Golden Virginias) with a good blend of citrus, vanilla, rum, and delicious maple flavored (both tin and room notes). It is smooth but also has a slight zing to it. A winner from Peterson!
4 out of 5
Very Nice
As a new pipe smoker I enjoy Cavendish's overall. This was purchased because of the reviews, the smell and aroma is very nice and no tongue bite. The is a lot of fruit going on here. Overall a very soothing tobacco.

A change from Ashton Guilty Pleasure.
Yes, I smoke aromatics. It keeps the peace in my home and allows me to partake of my pastime indoors during the winter months. I alternate between Guilty Pleasure and Connoisseur's Choice for a little variety and find that the Peterson blend is slightly sweeter and the Ashton has a little more of the flavor from the flake tobacco. Both are excellent and can be interchanged without tainting your briar pipe. No tongue bite from either if smoked correctly. A bit moist out of the tin but dries to a nice smokable texture in a pouch very well. Room note is very nice. Recommended highly if you like quality aromatics.

Awesome
I have been searching for the right tobacco for some time and finally stumbled on the perfect blend, no burn on the tongue, but yet bold flavor, perfection!

Makes the pipe an enjoyable experience for novices!
Smoking a pipe should be enjoyable, especially for the novice and this label will not disappoint any pipe smoker of any stripe. If you enjoy aromatics then this is your blend in my opinion. Great nose right from the opening of the can and the flavor is simply wonderful. The room note cannot be beat either and the strength level makes this blend a wonderful everyday smoke from beginning to end. This is my current favorite.

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.

Smooth to the last puff
This tobacco tastes great, smells great and is smooth to the last puff. No bite near the end like others. You won't be disappointed.

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.

Connoisseur's Choice
Great aroma opening the tin. Mild non biting. Bursts with different flavors throughout the entire smoke. Very pleasant room note. Very satisfied with this tobacco and will get it again.
4 out of 5
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.

Buttery Rum
I am generally an English blend pipe smoker, this was an exception as I love Peterson's pipes and this was my first foray into their tobacco. I have become something of a fan of this tobacco. It has little to no tongue bite and has a delicious buttery rum flavour. Its smokes smoothly and reduces to a nice ash. I am definitely adding this to my daily rotation.

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.

My longtime favorite
I've been a pipe smoker for 16 years and prefer aromatics. Connoisseur's Choice is by far my favorite. There's no bite to it and I can actually smell and taste the first 5-10 bowls (every other flavor I can only smell and taste the first bowl or two), so I alternate. The only thing I don't like about it is it's hard to spell!
5 out of 5
Connoisur's Choice
This is one of my favorite tobaccos. I keep trying new ones, but always go back to this one. The "fruity" flavor has no after taste. Smooth smoke from the first light, to last tamp. And "BITE" is not even in the vocabulary with this tin of tobacco! If you haven't tried it, don't wait. You'll being adding this one to your list of the MOST SMOKED tobaccos!
