At first I was kinda optimistic about this one but once it was in my pipe I was surprised it's pretty good stuff I'll definitely be a return customer on this one
I find this blend to be a really good aromatic blend, it has nice hint of vanilla & a pleasant sweetness. I highly recommend this blend to any aromatic fan.
I love this stuff, one of the best Aro/English I've smoked. I'll admit it has certain similarities to FMC, it's close enough to fill the hole in my soul that McClelland left, this and Cult Embassy.
The blend started me on a wonderful journey from an almost exclusively aromatic cellar to more robust and varied tobaccos. I cannot speak its similarity to Frog Morton, but the earthy tin note stays through the smoke, with sweet and smokey hints lingering throughout. Just thinking about it has me wanting to find a campfire and grab a Tolkien book.
I was totally blown away by this blend. I never got to try the original Frog Morton. Someone on Instagram said this was a tribute so I ordered some. It became an instant favourite! It's got the qualities of a light and delicious aromatic whilst being an all day English at the same time. On the nose I get some lovely black current/fig with an almost Malbec wine note, surrounded with warm vanilla accents with a little punch of glorious Latakia. It's excellent! I'm going to keep this in stock, right along side my go to Presbyterian. Thank you Sutliff!!!
Now, I have have shown absolutely no aptitude for tobacco reviews, but I know what I like. What we have here is Sutliff's Private Stock Eastfarthing. Cup o' Joe's describes it as "Mature Red Virginias, stoved Burley & aged Latakia with a hint of sweetness. A similar blend to McClelland's Frog Morton Cellar." Does it match FMC? Well, to begin with, there's no whiskey taste/smell, (and no barrel stave cube!). It does have that "... hint of sweetness" to compensate. The taste is similar to, but not the same as, FMC. Cool smoking, no bite, no dottle, no mouth coating. Smells delicious while smoking and on the retrohale, but I cannot tell you how it smells to others (room note). I am an aromatic smoker; my favorite blend for three years has been Barbados Plantation. Now it's Sutliff Panna Cotta. I like this Eastfarthing stuff even more than the FMC. It fills the hole left by FMC's passing; and more to the point, it's a' delicious smoke. A Latakia blend certain to please an aromatic smoker. Whether it'll please those who smoke English blends -- it being an English blend, but a very different one -- is up to them. Of course, that's just my opinion..... I could be wrong.... it's happened before..... just ask my wife.
