Sweet Tooth

There is nothing better than having a Sweet Tooth. This battle of the blends gives you a way to help that craving for something sweet. First up, we have Peter Stokkebye's 31 Optimum, which is one of their most popular blends that is a combination of top-notch Virginias, black Cavendish and mellow Burley. This will give you a nice creamy vanilla flavor and aroma. Next up, we have Russ's Monthly Blend - Summer Splash, a blend of Virginia, Burley and black Cavendish with fruit flavors that is a huge crowd-pleaser. Now we call on our P&C Faithful to help determine which is the Sweet Tooth battle leader. At this time you can purchase both tobaccos at a low price and be able to smoke them side by side. Once you have tried them, come back and leave your review and tell us who the clear winner should be.

Really digging this one
Not as bold as some others, but a good all day smoke. Not cloying like many bulk aromatics.

Nicely niched nicotine
This is my work-a-day aromatic, and it's great for what it is - a light, sweet bowl I can contentedly puff while my hands and brain are busy with other things. It was goopy out of the gate (which makes tongue bite inevitable, imho) but after a short seven week sit it's just about right. Packs perfectly, stays lit and burns fairly cleanly. I smoke aromatics in the shop and English blends in the evenings, and therefore pay less attention to my pipes during the day, but 31 Optimum refuses to smolder in the background. Every so often I'll get a puff that has a beautiful creamy finish that grabs my brain and says, "That's why you smoke aros." Not the greatest most distinctive legendary bowl, but for an inexpensive daily smoker it's awesome.

It’s okay. But I find it’s better mixed with Mclleland Georgian Creme.

Awesome all day tobacco!!
I read a few of the reviews and decided to try this blend. WOW, what a great smoke!! Everyone that has been around when I’ve had this in pipe has commented on how great it smells while giving me the most smooth, cool and pleasant smoke I’ve had in years. After ordering a bit to sample, I immediately ordered a much larger supply. Summer Splash is going to be my “go to” tobacco from now on!

Summer Splash is my new daily smoke
Very smooth, aromatic, great room notes, my wife loved the smell of my workshop while smoking this one. I would recommend to anyone looking for a smooth all day tobacco.

'twas aight
Meh. I'm glad I inherited this instead of purchasing it. It wasn't bad but as another reviewer pointed out there were a lot of things going on flavour wise. I smoked through two ounces of this before writing this review and only two of the bowls were memorable. I don't know if maybe I was in the right mood or I packed it extra special. For the most part I just stuck this in a cheap Italian pipe and puffed away between work shifts. Good enough to unconsciously smoke but not memorable.

PS 31
2nd go round on this. Much less vanilla. Nice and fruity without that dreaded cassia berry. This is my go-to aromatic now.

Nice smoke no bite and doesn't gunk up my corn cob. Not a lot of flavor but just enough for me to enjoy
5 out of 5
this was a very pleasant surprise, I mean really pleasant. It's like taking in a mouthful of sunshine. It just has this really 'clean' soothing flavor that's like the first breath you take while stream fishing - after you've made your cast and it's where you wanted it and your settling back into a moment of contentment. This is really a perfect tobacco.

Great Mild Smoke, But a Little Light on Aroma.
Mild but is a little lacking on aroma. To add aroma, I discovered that cutting in Peter Stokkebye Old English gives it a unique aroma. To retain the mildness, I cut in only about one part Old English (4:1 ratio). That adds a wonderful unique aroma of Old English, without the burn. After trying out a variety of blends, the 4:1 (Optimum:Old English) blend is now my smoke going forward.

Gentle and Nice
I smoked several bowls of this before this review because if I wrote one after a bowl or two I would not have ranked this one that high. Such a bouquet of flavors in this that its hard to pick out just one. Give it time to grow on you and you'll be rewarded with a gentle, flavorful all day smoke.

Summer Splash
I have tried a couple of Russ' blends and this is by far my favorite. No bite, smooth and a very pleasing aroma. Will be getting much more. Russ, keep it coming!

Great aromatic for those starting out or for the experienced pipers.
What a wonderful aromatic! The room note was a huge, huge hit with our family over Independence Day Weekend and the flavors are fantastic for me, a win-win!

Must try aromatic.
Peter Stokkebye never disappoints and this one is no exception to that rule. I really enjoy this as an everyday aromatic smoke. I detected several different flavors to include just a hint of smokey cherry flavor. I would buy this again.

Great stuff
Awesome flavor, not much bite and is great for sitting on the back porch on a summer night.

My favorite Russ blend.
This really hits the spot with the hints of berry. Nice room note, incredible bag note and the berry even comes through in the smoke too. The blend marries into something unique with no harshness and has some substance unlike most other aromatics. Russ has a real winner with this one !

Perfect Blend
Russ' Summer Splash is the blend that I have desired for years. Perfect in every aspect of a fine smoke. Cool burn and a decent room note but most importantly the flavor is incredibly satisfying. I will certainly be purchasing more Summer Splash from Russia at "Pipes & Cigars"!!!

PS Optimum
I have been smoking this blend for about 15 years, I have tried several other blends and always come back to Optimum. Probably will never smoke anything else, mild, clean burning and a pleasant aroma, even for non smokers.

Good stuff
I have tried several Stokkebye products, and the are excellent. I especially like the 31 Optimum because of its mildness.

Too mild for me
Topping is a sensual, vanilla forward witches brew with fruit under tones. Very mild all day smoker. Too lite for me. Four stars for a pleasant tobacco. Age when smoked: Fresh.

Excellent products. Reasonable prices.
I am enjoying the Stokkebye 31 and plan to order some more. Perhaps explore some other blends as well. Thank you.

Excellent smoke.
Great aroma, not as sweet as golden dansk 48, I enjoy black Cavendish tobacco and this hits the mark. Cool smoking with no bite. Pleasing room note, and burns completely to a white ash. Great value comparable to Tinderbox Chartwell. Is definitely a regular purchase. Thanks P&C.

My Optimum choice.
Optimum is one of my favorite all day smokes. I was lucky enough to find it at my local B&M and purchased 2oz. To try it out. A few hours later I was back for half a pound. Now that I see I can buy it hear in bulk for less I will probably include it in my next order. It's a smooth smoking great tasting blend with just the right mix of Cavendish and vanilla/fruit flavor to be enjoyable with a coffee or something a little stronger in the evenings.

Optimum lives up to its name.
Received my Optimum recently. Finally tried it today. Wow! This is a great blend. Been smoking Nougat. Will definitely be keeping Optimum onhand. Extremely smooth, tasteful and aromatic.

buy in volume and save
optimum is by far my favorite daily smoke. sure I enjoy a late night dunhill and I have gotten many enjoyable batches of "best of the rest". but by buying the optimum in bulk at such a low price and storing it till I need some, I never run out. I live on the remote coast and delivery is a fantastic convenience .
