When it comes to aros, I prefer liquor cased or vanilla/toffee kind of flavours. But for a fruit essence, Firedance Flake and Rattray's Exotic are two top smokes. The Rattray's is a fantastic summer smoke. Light and very citrusy. The Firedance has always been an autumn smoke for me. Both are quite heavily cased in their respective flavours, but neither are goopers in my opinion. The tobacco used is quite high quality, but there's no mistaking the flavours that have been added. If you're smoking around other people, you'll get a LOT of positive comments with these two as well as a quite enjoyable smoke. If you're looking for a good nic hit, the FF is the stronger of the two by quite a bit I'd say. But both will ghost a pipe like a banshee. I like a stout Latakia blend in the same pipe I smoked FF in. Some good smokey, blackberry action going on there.
