Erinmore is a brand that I haven’t had before. As long as they have been around, I have not been smoking long, so this is my first experience with them. I honestly did not expect this to be an aromatic. Although, it does have a lot of sweetness on the aroma, it didn’t seem more than natural. Have to see how it smokes.

Tin/Jar Note: Fruity. Has a smokey, Fruit Loops smell.

Visual: Wide, pressed flakes. Predominately dark Burleys, with interspersed light Virginias.

Flavors: Starts out with a lot of nutty Burley notes, then the sweetness of the Virginias come into play. It isn’t until a quarter of the way through that I start to get the fruitiness. And it is a nice aftertaste of fruit.

Smoking Experience: I used the fold and pack method this time, instead of rubbing it out. Considering how wet the tobacco seemed, it burned well. Needed no more or no less relights than I was expecting.

Tobacco Strength: Medium

Body: Medium+

Room Note: Pleasant

Comparable Tobacco: This one is unique.

Conclusion: Very interesting, At first, I could not detect any of the flavoring and when it did come out, it was really only on the finish. The draws were all quite natural tasting of Virginia and Burley, but became fruity on the exhale and aftertaste. And, yes. The fruity flavor is very similar to that of Fruit Stripe gum. It was good, I enjoyed it and would definitely smoke it again. I don’t think I would throw it in my rotation, but it would be worth grabbing some on sale to have on hand.

Rating: 3 Stars AKA "When it is on Sale" – Wouldn't pay full retail but would purchase it on sale

Sounds like an interesting smoke. I've seen it for sale, but never paid much attention to it. Thanks for the review.

Thanks Jeff! It was definitely an interesting smoke, but good too. Was NOT expecting it to taste like Fruit Stripe either...

Interesting, I'd give this a try if I could find some on the cheap sometime. Definitely seen this around.
