Summer Daydream is one of four new blends, from the newly released Seasons line from Tsuge. The Season's line is a collection of four (one for each season), aromatic blends. Released at the same time as the God Series, which is a non-aromatic lineup, but those are for another review. It's still summer down here, so i am going to see how this tobacco holds up.

Tin/Jar Note: Nutty, sweet and pleasantly smooth. 

Visual: A fairly moist looking, ribbon cut pile of darker tobacco, with the light colored Virginias throughout.

Flavors: Pretty straightforward. Sweet Virginia and nutty Burley tobacco notes, with a mild amount of vanilla.

Smoking Experience: It smoked nicely, other than needing a few relights. I didn't hit it too hard from that since it is an aromatic and with the humidity outside my tobacco only gets "wetter" as I have it out.

Tobacco Strength: Mild+

Body: Mild+

Room Note: Pleasant

Comparable Tobacco: Nothing specific comes to mind. This is similar to most of the vanilla aromatics I've had, except it seems to be the mildest one to date.

Conclusion: Good tobacco, nice sweetened profile. Only real drawback to me was the strength and body. A little too on the mild side for me. Even though this makes sense to me, because for those hot summer days you'd want something easy going and somewhat sweet. I would definitely rebuy, just sure I wouldn't need to keep too much on hand.

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