It is good flavor and excellent taste but because of poor paper in the can tobacco is drying very fast

A good product but there's still a little debating going on.
As others had said in the reviews, it has that mild caramel smell, and I've gotten that remark when smoking it, but it really doesn't have a prominent sweet flavor, mostly just tobacco. I would've preferred a little more aromatic to the flavor but it still smoked fine for me. I would've given it a 3.5, if I could personally, but I feel 4 stars tends to be a bit more objective considering it meets in the middle for different smokers.

I normally don't like aros
I normally don't like aromatics that are sweet, usually opting for a stronger and more nuanced tobacco profile, but Melange is different. It has little to no bite and tastes like coffee caramels. I believe you should treat yourself with this tobacco just once to smoke with a strong coffee; perfect to get rid of that morning grogginess.

Stanwell the unfreindly ghost
Will ghost the hell out of your pipe. Tastes like old dried apricots, not fresh fruity ones. If you like stale old fruit cake, this might be up your alley.

My new favorite Aro.
Hands down one the best aromatics I've tried and it's one of those rare cases where the blend actually tastes like it smells. The tin notes and flavors I get is definitely the apricot majority of the time but also some coffee and some times close to a Werther's Original or a Buttered Rum Lifesaver. Highly recommend and definitely I will be keeping a tin on hand when I'm in the mood for an aro

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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
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.

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.

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).

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.

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!
Customer Testimonials
I am a dedicated-die heart aero smoker so I am looking to taste something outstanging. This is my second tin and I keep it in my regular rotation.Pleasant light taste,great aroma,no bite or goop left when finished.Only one other tabacco I have ever tried that lived up to the fruit and light taste is Petersons Connisseur Choice. They are both wonderful.
JM of Iron Station, NC
An easy mild smoke. There is a lot of flavors going on, bright and flavorful.Burns well right from the tin. I will finish the tin and feel pleased.
JM of Iron Station, NC
This is an awesome blend. Apricot and hickory is the flavoring it seems, the aroma and taste is to die for, so good! I cannot smoke anything but this since I tried it, very addicting !
TS of Folsom, PA
This is a nice change of pace tobacco. Tastes great, has a wonderful aroma and is mild to boot.
My favorite smoke with strong black coffee at sunrise. Just enough hint of apricot to seem almost like nibbling on a danish - not overwhelming but delightfully complementary. Due to fact I have heard that it has strong ghosting potential, I have a dedicated MM Diplomat Cob for it.
TF of Jacksonville, FL
I opened a tin of Stanwell Melange and to me it smells of apricots and brown sugar. My wife said it smells really good (coming from the wife who normally will leave the room as soon as i open any tobacco). So I proceed to go outside to smoke my pipe and shortly after starting the front door opens and my wife comes out and sits next to me. I was absolutely stunned never in my 5 years of smoking a pipe has my wife come and sat with me. normally she tries to get as far away as possible and promptly says I stink afterwords. This on the other hand was paradise she said she hardly even knew i was smoking as the smell blended well with the smells of spring outside. she even comment that she loves the after smell on my beard a plus for sure. This tobacco tasted like it smelled while being smoked and was to this day the easiest tobacco I have had to keep lit. Only one relight and that was my fault as i set the pipe down while having a conversation with the Mrs. I had no tongue bite at all. I did notice towards the end of the bowl it had a spice taste to it not to far from a spice tea which I really enjoyed. I will definitely be buying more of this specially with the reaction I received from my wife. For those interested I smoked this in a Stanwell Bent Bulldog
HA of Norfolk, VA
A splendid aromatic tobacco that never gets old in my opinion. Best if aged a little, I usually open my first tin and allow it to age for a day or so.
JH of Pocatello, ID
I agree with previous posters. This is a nice, flavorful tobacco. Not goopy AT ALL. Nice citrus/fruity flavor. Different. And good. Found myself wanting more, after I finished !
A nice summer blend. Reminded me of sutliffs Taste of summer. Sweet but not overbearing.
TD of West Glover, VT
Stanwell Melange has a nice fruity-tart character that sets itself apart. I keep going back for more. It's very tasty. Will be ordering more!
WC of Fond Du Lac, WI
The Stanwell line of pipes is itself outstanding, and when I was sent a sampler of Stanwell's Melange, I was hoping the legendary name would fit the tobacco also bearing the famous Stanwell name. From the outset, I knew I was in for a special treat. Upon cracking open the tin, I was immediately hit by an incredible aroma; a hodgepodge of vanilla, apricot and coconut, with a slight hint of nuttiness. I then wondered if the casing would be overpowering and just lay in the tin and smell great. A pinch told me it wasn't gooey and overdone, and a taste of my fingers confirmed that. The look of the tobacco was very good, a nice blend of burleys and Orientals, with a bit of Virginia and a slight touch of black Cavendish. The quality of the tobacco seemed very good. I packed up a bowl and commenced a char light, and was immediately pleased with the amazing taste and room note. In fact, my non-smoking wife drifted into the room somewhere after the second light and commented that she had arrived in Heaven. I couldn't agree more. All the way through the burn, all the way down to the heel, Stanwell's Melange burned bright and merry, filling the room with an amazing scent unlike anything I have ever smoked. This particular flavor is now a very heavy hitter in my pipe smoking rotation, ousting my previous standby, MacBaren's 7 Seas Royal.
CG of Lincoln City, OR
Nice apricot and vanilla (and slight almond) scent in a very non-goopy mix. The blend is a gold and tan color with a scattering of black cavendish. The smoke is enjoyable with a slight sweet taste (from the burley, I am presuming) that doesn't overpower the Virginias and Orientals. Highly recommended and a pleasant surprise, especially the price.
DR of Bowling Green, KY
A very good smoke, I detect a slight citrus flavor, possibly orange, don't know if I'm alone in this might just be my palate, I'll have to really pay attention next bowl. Would definitely buy again!
DS of Durham, ME
A very flavorful cool smoke. An almost butter aroma and taste. Very satisfying.
TG of Crown Point, IN
This is a wonderful smoke. Don't expect the apricot smell (I don't detect too much of taste here) at first , but once you get it lit well and smoke slowly, you will detect it... so the key here is to be patient. A great room note . .. a great evening smoke with some Drambouie..This will be on my top smoke list along with BCA, RLP6, Very Cherry, and Vermont Meat Candy. I am still exploring. Pipe Type--Stanwell Billard
