Pleasant all-day smoke
February 14, 2018
Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Mildly aromatic is pretty spot on. It's black Cavendish, Burley, and just a pinch of Latakia. The top note was dark fruit and some spice. I could make out the Latakia, too. Upon first light, the spice was strong, almost over powering. But then it mel... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Overall impression of this blend is that it's not too much of anything. Subtle on the tongue, aromatic but not too bold, delicate sweetness paired with leathery smoke... It's a perfect all-day blend. Like the previous reviewer, I find myself reaching... Read More
A nice all day tobacco!

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend 12oz
I first tried this most excellent light blend 2 years ago. It is a good way to start your day, and an even better way to end your day. It has a mild fruit taste. The best way to smoke this blend is slowly. To truly get the full flavor/ aroma, try a c... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
I received a tin of this for Christmas and I was absolutely blown away. Best way I can describe it is a perfect 50/50 balance between English and Aromatic. The epitome of the old time "American English" style blend. My Dad used to smoke Bru... Read More

I had never tried any of this, but I've read that Shelby Foote smoked this mixed with other tobaccos, one of them was H&H. I mixed a pouch of H&H with the 1.5 ounce tin of EGR. This makes a great smoke, to me anyway. I have it jarred and smok... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
A semi-sweet, smooth, and mellow mixture of black cavendish, burley and a hint of creamy smokey/leathery latakia, with a prune juice topping and a hint of cinnamon or allspice. A predominantly balanced, but slightly alkaline mixture. The burley is u... Read More

A blend that brings back memories - as a little boy, entering a local tobacco shop (it was perfectly ok back then) and smelling a sweet nutty smoke in the air, the patron's pipes fuming gently.... This, a blend actually overseen by Robinson himself ... Read More

Rewarding Blend

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Cover over the name on the tin and just try it, and this blend starts off straightforwardly enough, then begins to grow on you. I'm sampling a lot of different tobaccos to find my keepers, and this is one that contrasts nicely with my other "all... Read More
Very Pleasant

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
This tobacco is mild, yet flavorful. The room note is sweet and subtle. There is no after taste or tongue bite. Good for a long smoke. The taste is sweet and nutty with just the perfect hint of smoky Latakia.

Classic in every way from start to finish. One to repeat often paired with the late great Edward G. Robinson's fine films .
Really enjoyed this tobacco

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
I found this a nice pipe tobacco. Great tin aroma, reminds me of H&H AJ's Vaper. Great right from the tin, great room aroma, no bite and burned to the bottom of the bowl. Will buy some more of this!
Good blend

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
This tobacco reminds me of plum cake. It has a raisin-y taste enhanced by the smoky robustness of some latakia. I found the tobacco to be just the right moisture level out of the tin, and it lit and smoked nicely. There was no tongue bite or other... Read More

I have smoked 5 bowls of this tobacco in a day and a half, and it's very tasty. It has a very pleasant aroma when you first smell it: maybe a plum, or a very light fruit aroma, not heavy at all. But unmistakably there. It's cool smoking with no bite.... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Pleasant is the perfect word to describe this aromatic. It won't knock your socks off, but it is tasty and smooth. Perfect for an all day aromatic.
Wonderful Light Aromatic

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Edward G. Robinson makes for a very enjoyable smoke. It is lightly aromatic, not mucky or sticky, and it's an easy smoke without being boring. You could smoke it all day, but I like it enough to savor just one bowl. Makes you feel like an old time pi... Read More

I don’t know what possessed me to buy this. Maybe because of E. G., whose acting I liked so much. Definitely tasting the nuttiness, black Cavendish and hint of Latakia. A very different tobacco than I’ve ever had. It starts off very strong, but fini... Read More

EGR is what I keep in my pouch at all times. It is like comfort food. Is it really merely a ‘drug store brand?’ Sure doesn’t act like one. The cut is generous. The texture rich and interesting. Though I have smoked what we might call ‘premium to... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Just as the description implies, mildly aromatic, as I could not detect any aromatic notes, but I detected the spiciness of the burleys, which were o the medium end, and not too overwhelming as some burleys tend to be. Very nice and smooth, for ... Read More
Boring
March 05, 2019
Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson 1.5oz
Just as the title states, I found this blend boring. The tin note is very light. I could smell the small amount of Latakia and a fruity aroma like grape. I guess that's supposed to be the liquor. When I light it up, though, I don't taste much at all.... Read More

Product: Edward G. Robinson Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend 12oz
I don't enjoy aromatics, but this stuff is really enjoyable. Lightly topped, and containing just enough Latakia to know it's there, this is a very good blend. I couldn't smoke this all day, but 2 bowls here and there is definitely advisable. Very tas... Read More

This mild aromatic combines fruit tones of grape and red fruit with darker notes of campfire and dried meat. At first, I found it inclined to smoke a little hot, but after practice and experiment, I discovered how to keep that in check: shallower bow... Read More

This is a great blend that is lightly aromatic but with just a hint of Latakia. I think I'll definitely purchase more.

Difficult to keep lit. Bites and flavor mediocre at best. Wanted to like it but no matter what I did, the results were still the same.

I've always been intrigued by older, long gone blends, somehow expecting that because it was once considered a "bread and butter" standard by many, there MUST be something to it. Well this terrible tasting tobacco proved me wrong! I don't... Read More
