Pretty good stuff. This blend has a fantastic per dominant raisin/prune flavoring which I found to be quite sweet. This blend is not goopy or wet. Nor is it chemically tasting or smelling. Not too bad give it a try
Not a bad smoke at all

I am new to pipe smoking. It was with this tobacco that I made my breakthrough in pipe smoking. Perhaps you will remember your own breakthrough. Started puffing too hard and/ or too deeply. Tobacco ended up getting singed. I finally learned how ... Read More

The BR TV ads of the 70's (when I was a teenager) made me want to smoke a pipe. Lovely Swedish girls filing and lighting your pipe.....

One of the best borkum riff. But you need to smoke this slowly and with good pacing or else tongue bite.

Back in the early 1980's, when I would run out of the tobacco shop blend, I'd choose this over Captain Black. There weren't too many choices back then on a college budget. It snorkels smoothly when fresh, and had a decent finish note compared to Capt... Read More

My Grandpa used to smoke this, when I started smoking I wanted to try it. I will buy the other flavors with time. This one though was really enjoyable. Fruity and chocolatey notes, low nicotine (which if you don't like, add some Five Brothers in it! ... Read More

I could taste the fruit flavor. Like a sour plum in a good way. It does get hot though, there is some steam at times. Dry it out a little.
nice change of pace

Pouch notes of strong vanilla and mild chocolate liquor. Tobacco cut is mostly shag with a little fatter ribbons mixed in. Further it looks like 3 different leaves of mostly medium brown and a smaller amount of black and tan. Tobacco is soft, no prep... Read More

I don't exactly know what this is cased or topped with, but I can taste top-shelf tawny port - especially when retrohaling. Very smooth and refreshing.
surprisingly alright

I smoke this from time to time when I'm in a pinch. I was skeptical at first but it has a pleasant sweet taste, and is true to the description. Not bad for the price range. Very light so not really all that satisfying. Widely available (it is drug st... Read More
