Mild balanced flavor with pleasant room notes even for non smokers!
Mild, cool smoke with an initial buttery mouth feel. The room note and flavor in the beginning is of caramel and vanilla. Super mild grassy notes at the bottom of bowl. Absolutely no tongue bite.

Perfect Aromatic
Where do I start?? This blend has an incredible taste and room note. It is perfectly smooth with little tongue bite, and the flavor is almost impossible to describe. If you doubt the taste of this blend then I would recommend taking a look at my other revues, I have never raved about another blend like this one. It has a smooth butterscotch taste without being overly sweet, you can manipulate the taste freely by adjusting the temperature that you smoke at, and the nicotine content is perfect. This is a smooth, strong, and delightful smoke and I will continue to buy warm-up as it is available. I currently have a collection of 10 sealed jars of tobacco but I am going to order a jar capable of holding a pound of this stuff. This truly is the perfect aromatic. 11/10 recommend.

Great Blend...Smooth Delight
This is a great tobacco blend with a smooth taste and somewhat long burn. It was not too dry or too moist and is a sheer delight at any time. Definitely worth the small price. I will keep a supply of this on hand whenever possible.

Excellent Blend
Excellent blend with fantastic flavor. The after taste is good. You can feel some mixed berry and pleasant room notes. It is an any occasion blend.I will add it to my regular tabacco rotation.

New regular baccy
As a new to pipe smoker, coming after having quit cigarettes, vaping, smoking quality cigars, chewing and dipping, this is the style of tobacco I had in mind when I picked up a pipe again. It's got a great flavor on my uninitiated palate, the room smelled great after, and I had a faint taste of caramel on my tongue after the smoke was finished. The pouch smelled fantastic when I first opened it, and I'm now ordering more. This stuff will be a regular purchase for me unless I try the other Russ' blends and like a few of them more.

Soooo good!
I bought a 2 oz sampler of this first time around. The pouch note is to die for. At least for me. Essence of caramel and vanilla pour out, but like most aromatics, the pouch note never quite translates as strongly in the bowl. Warm Up though might be one of the few exceptions. It really is a quite tasty blend. I'm pretty much a die hard Captain Black Royal guy, this might dethrone the Captain. I bought 6 oz after I finished the 2 oz and it was just as luscious. I plan on getting a full pound when I'm done with the 6 oz purchase and might just make it my every day smoke, it's that good. Mild and tasty with no bite, burns well. It's really worth a try. I'm very happy I did!

Nice Blend - soon extinct thanks to FDA interference
Always enjoyed Russ' Warm-up blend. Not over powering but with enough flavor to satisfy.

Russ' Monthly Blend - Warm Up
Excellent blend! Very smooth and mild. All of the pipe tobacco and cigars that I have ordered have arrived fresh, and in a timely manner. No issues at all. Keep up the good work P&C!

Favorite blend to date.
Like Joseph S. I too received this in the 5 sampler pack after waiting months for it to come back in stock and agree with everything he said. This is a must try for the aromatic smoker. My favorite of the sampler however all of them are definitely worth a try.

Don't Let Warm-Up Go The Way Of The Dinosaur
After receiving the sampler containing Warm-Up, Ice Cream Sundae, Cinnamon Bun, Candy Corn, and Snow Drift I was hooked on Russ' Blends. And Warm-Up became one of my all-time favorite aromatic blends. I immediately purchased an additional 8 oz. and have been enjoying it immensely. Around the same time I discovered his Spring Training blend and bought up a batch of that as well. And loved it. Then when it was announced these blends were to be discontinued due to the FDA regulations I panicked and bought another 10 oz. of Warm-Up for my cellar. Were I a wealthy man I would have bought more. Then once the reality of a world without these wonderful blends really settled in I instructed my wife to make this year a Very Merry Tobacco Christmas for me and presented her with a lengthy Christmas list of these discontinued Russ blends. I expect my cellar will soon be overflowing with these marvelous endangered blends, but I'll have to ration them to make them last. Warm-Up must not go the way of the dinosaur.

Good all day smoke
Russ's Warm Up-Warm Up blend is a good all day smoke. Light and pleasing, no bite. Have smoked it in several different pipes, no complaints.

Could be my Favorite Blend (so far)
Purchased the Warm-Up as a companion to Lane 1-Q I also purchased. The Warm-Up is different, but very mild and a pleasure to smoke. I am not a pipe tobacco expert and cannot really comment on technical aspects of the tobacco, but it seems to hit all the right notes for an everyday smoke.

Warm-Up met my expectations indoors and outdoors - I have another favorite!
This blend is a mild, pleasing, and flavorful smoke. The Virginias, burley, and Cavendish along with the sweetness of the vanilla and the fruity overtones made for an enjoyable experience.

A real winner! I don't like overly sweet or perfume drenched tobaccos! This blend, which I was afraid was going to be too sweet, turned out to be a very mellow, smooth,great smoke. Absolutely delightful! Obviously no bite, but no nasty aftertaste either. A wonderful mellow treat!
Customer Testimonials
I've tried almost every flavor of Russ' Monthly Blend and this is my favorite one. Results in a very relaxing and great smelling smoke.
KS of Grand Forks, ND
Amazing, just mind boggling. The reason I say mind boggling is that when ever I am up for a smoke my mind automatically goes straight to this blend out of 35+ others. I have a generous amount of samples I am still trying to get through but it is difficult as this blends keeps pulling me back. Arrives not over moistened nor dry but at a very acceptable level that will keep healthy and dry quick for a nice smoke. This blend burns very well and smokes pretty close to cool and i think i say only pretty close because the flavors to me are warm as its name is. Flavors are not overboard but provide a healthy does that leaves your self questioning another bowl. This has been probably the best bet I made and I am happy I grabbed 4oz and will place another order shortly.
NB of Annandale, VA
I have been trying out some aromatics and searching for one that is not too heavily dressed with a flavoring. Warm-up is definitely a contender as it is not so flavored as to overshadow the flavor of the VA's and burly. Very nice all day smoke with a pleasant room note.
JM of Romulus, MI
I'm new to pipe smoking and so far I've only tried a couple different types of Captian Black, which was pretty good, but I ordered some of Russ' Warm-Up blend and I can tell a difference in quality, as it smells and smokes very nice. It's smooth and flavorful.
