I'm a fan of G&H's "american" aromatics Cherry & Vanilla and American Delight although I have to mix them with a plug or rope for nic hit. Top Black Cherry is my absolute favorite. Anyone tried G&H kentucky nougat or American Whiskey, American Peach? What's your opinion on them...I like SG Celtic Talisman...but the flavor is light...it's like Cherry Chapstick. Does SG perfection have the same amount of topping as CT or is it a stronger dose of Vanilla?
What's your favorite american style lakeland blend?

My favorite is Top Black Cherry, probably the best cherry blend I've ever smoked. Your post led me to fire up some of the Kentucky Nougat sample that I had only tried once before. It's VERY mild and I can't say it's to my taste at all, but it isn't goopy or overly sweet in the way of some American aromatics.

I too enjoy Top Black Cherry, it's really well done. One of the very few flavored straight cavendish blends that I smoke.

Thanks john for the description of kentucky nougat maybe I'll give it try but it sounds like it doesn't have too much flavor. Does anyone like perfection? The reviews vary but many say it has no vanilla they can taste

I can chime in on Perfection. As far as cross overs go, say providing a sweet aromatic quality with the smokiness of a good latakia, I thought it was a miss. The vanilla was barely there if at all, and as far as latakia blends go, it's decent. If I were after a Sam Gawith latakia, I would rather smoke Skiff Mixture or Squadron Leader in that order. Of course neither are aromatics, but both are quite good.

Personally I think Westmorland mixture is sweeter tasting than Perfection and has more of a noticable flavor influence coming from its topping, which I believe is good ol' Tonquin.

I'm not much of an aromatic smoker, but just had some of G & H's American Delight, tinned. Seemed pretty tasty to me, quite mild, great scent. Very moist directly from the tin, but I smoked 'er that way anyhow, with no drying time, and I'm glad I did. I like the restraint used on the topping; it's definitely there and quite "juicy" to my taste, but not cloying at all. In comparison, I don't like Reiner's Professional Mixture at all. Or Lane's 1Q. Or Captain Black. Apparently it's a bit lacking in nicotine, as I wanted another bowl immediately after knocking out the first. A far cry from another "delight," Haddo's, which is a favorite of mine, so I'm probably depraved in the taste buds. Might keep some on hand for smoking around the girls of both sexes--or, as today, a change of pace.

Yup American Delight has such a delicious vanilla topping, probably the best vanilla flavor, but it has like no N and I can only smoke it mixed with something strong like 1792 or bosun etc. I;ve come to hate sams flake..I mean I really hate it. Its the only SG blend I dont like
