I know why people rave about it. It's a wonderful, relaxing smoke. I haven't decided if this or Three Nuns is my favorite thus far in my month or so in of pipe smoking.
Beautiful with Age

I've been smoking Escudo off and on for a dozen years now. While it's excellent young, it is extraordinary with a few years of age on it. I recently found some that I'd cellared a decade ago. Wow. It's softer, mellower, sweeter, more rounded. An... Read More extraordinary smoke. Read Less

Escudo is undeniably one of the finest tobaccos. I enoy an occasional bowl but the cost can be prohibitive for everyday use. Luxry Bullseye Flake is not a substitue for Escudo as some have clamed, but I can afford to smoke it everyday.

I just tried my first Escudo and WOW what a smoke!! Had to follow it up with a second bowl just make sure. The room note is pleasant and has a good flavor. Got so excited I had a mild hot spot to the back of my throat but that was my doing and not... Read More the blend. I'll deffinately keep this in my regular rotation. Highly recommended to anyone looking to begin with a flake as it has some of the flake characteristics of other blends that are harder to master for newbies. Read Less

Years ago this was my first tip toe into the world of tinned tobacco. Years later, dozens and varieties later, I still keep a tin or two of this about.
It's good, little more need be said. Smokes nice with little to no bite, good tobacco flavor... Read More with a bit of peppery spiceyness, yet mild enough to smoke all day, every day.
If I weren't such a wandering soul, I'd just smoke this, every day, all day.
Other's are close, and some are almost as good and cheaper but for me, this is the best I've found in VA/Per. Even compared to the venerable Three Nuns, I prefer Escudo, it's a little milder and after completing a full tin of Three Nun's, I'd have to say it at times can be harsh. Read Less
