Soothing winter pleasure.
Mildly complex and surprising in its warm notes, with a lasting finish. Beautifully tinned with traditional Japanese woodblock inspired artwork. Something to savior.

Charming and approachable.
Tsuge Winter's Embrace is a nice and developed straight Virginia. When you open the tin, of which the artwork is truly beautiful, you are met with bright and dark ribbons and an amazing aroma. It is a very mild experience. In some circles it receives low grades due to its mild aroma and smoke. However, sometimes an approachable and unchallenging smoke is exactly what you want. It is a two note chord. The room note with its citrus, mild spices, and nuttiness are very compatible in a room with other people. I picture this, if you wish to embrace it's marketing, as a great experience at a holiday party with others around you enjoying their drinks and conversation. It's not so bold and overwhelming that you would be ushered out of the room onto the balcony. However, on a cold winters night with this in your pipe that could also be just as enjoyable. The grassy and hay-notes or understated but perceptible. A very light Cavendish sweetness can also be found. My first tin arrived a little bit dry for my taste. A few hours humidification made it just right for my style of smoking, pace, and Baraccini, medium size pipe I enjoyed it in. Again, if you set your expectations as this being a highly compatible tobacco to be enjoyed when you're in that mood, or around others who may not be pipe smoking aficionados, I think you will find this a nice tobacco to have in your collection. It is not bold, it's not complex, nor is it strong enough to withstand after a stout drink or heavy dinner. This is better suited for when your pallet is experiencing the tobacco first thing in the evening or when you want to play nice in the company you are around. I'm on my second tin and have a third in the cellar. Purely with these circumstances and expectations in mind I give it four out of five stars.

Not bad overall.
Not a bad tobacco, but I was hoping for a more complex flavor than what I got. It reminded me, somewhat, of cigarettes as I smoked down to the bottom of the bowl. I will cellar this and see if it improves.

disappointing
Disappointed. This tobacco looks, tastes and smells like a cheap cigarette tobacco. There is a sharp bite from the charring light until the time you decide you have had enough. The room note is that of a casino gaming floor. It is the only blend that my wife has ever asked that I please not smoke in the house, which will not be an issue because I will not light another bowl of it.

Tsuge-winter's Embrace.....coooool
I never thought I'd be able to taste the old town memory of my favorite cigarette.....what a suurprize, just a sitting there, our on my back porch -- near freezing temps last year- all groggy trying to wake up with the best serious face I could--when I just started sipping and thinking of new possible pipe grains of latakia or Hurley running around my head.....i was quite shocked at first, but now... after 4 whole tins it really didn't bother me anymore, and 4 later, i actually started to like it,....but now, I'm kinda quite addicted to it, i need to make it a part of my regular piping rotation.....!!! 5-stars

Tsuge Winter's Embrace: Too Mild to hold my interest, probably marginally better than most OTC blends.
Not at all heavily cased. Extremely mild. I suppose mild is preferable in an aromatic if the alternative is something that tastes like air freshener. That being said, underwhelming. Tin art is vastly more interesting than the contents.

Classic, simple everyday
Classic, simple, creamy, every day everywhen kind of smoke.

Wasn't horrible.
It wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't smoke it everyday. It just wasn't what we expected.

Great blend.
This is one of my favorite blends as well. I enjoy all of the four season blends by Tsuge. I highly recommend.

It's ok
Not bad , a bit bland, but if you smoke it just right you get a nice hint of what it could be. If you like a mild tobacco that's just barely an aromatic you may like this one. I find its a good smoke for my morning commute.

It's ok.
I'm not sure if this really fits into the aromatic category. It is mellow but I was expecting a little more flavor.

Boring, skip this one
I bought this when I tried Mystery of Autumn and was excited to try the rest of the seasons. I have to say, this one missed the mark for me. It's a bit boring with no pronounced flavor, and I'm not too exited about finishing the tin. I'd skip this one.

One of my favorite tabaccos
It's mild plain and has a smooth smoke. Like the title says it's one of my favorite brands of smoking tabacco. I would suggest this to anyone who likes tabacco without the flavors.
Customer Testimonials
This tobacco gives a decent buzz at the end and there wasn't any trouble with built up moisture, but overall the smoke seemed a little bland. It smelled good in the tin but not so much while burning. At the end of it, it doesn't feel much different than just a cigarette. Don't let it turn you away from the brand though and try one of the other varieties like the autumn or summer which are a much pleasurable experience.

Not an awful flavor, some bite but smokes down to a fine ash. The Cavendish is overpowered by the other flavors and to me, tasted like a bland virginia. Smoked out of a Peterson billiard pipe.
AC of Casper, WY
I am new to pipe smoking and still feel qualified to say that this blend is thoroughly unsatisfying. I have only smoked Supervalue Ultramild and this is relatively bland and prone to burning my tongue. I was rather excited about this brand and its packaging, but the smoke doesn't live up to the nuance advertised by the tin's aesthetics.
