Five Brothers: Five Brothers 1.25oz

Product Number: 003-594-0001

Single-blend brands tend to be an eccentric bunch - they can range in direction, style, and prudence from the classic "Presbyterian" blend to something like "Whiskey Sweat-lodge Fruit Basket." The "Five Brothers", originally blended by the five Finzer brothers, keeps things simple, though: this is an air-cured, shag-cut Burley. That is not, however, to say that it is without distinction. Those who have reviewed this blend have been quite clear that this is some powerful stuff.

Burley at its Best
June 06, 2018
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
This stuff is simple and great---Elegance in simplicity. Best way to smoke is to find your favorite chair, install a seat belt, pour some straight scotch (or whiskey), fire up--- and get it on! You will love it.
It is what it is!

Gave this one 5 just because of what it is and not what I expected or what I wanted it to be. Pure burley in flavor and strength! Enough already said about burning properties so, if you’re a burley fan give it a try

5 Brothers! What a smoke!

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
No cherry, no vanilla, just very affordable, strong, no-nonsense tobacco flavor. It burns real fast and be advised, the 5 Brothers can deliver quite a kick!

If someone wants to bum a cigarette from you, always have one of these ready rolls handy. Better yet, have some Picayune ready rolls on hand. Not likely they'll come back for another but then again, they might want to tough it out if they have a comf... Read More
Choice Burley-Goodness
April 14, 2018
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Simple blend, simply an excellent Burley! The tobacco comes quite dry and is intended to be smoked this way. Pack a little more firmly than usal to work against the faster burn and you'll get most natural Burley goodness. Richly earthy, mildy nutty a... Read More

I am a working class guy with a working class job. I work outdoors, often. And, I am thus enabled to smoke during the day. I often smoke pipes for nicotine. So, this is my go-to, non-fuss tobacco. Mechanics of it are great for working with your hands... Read More

Nothing fancy, just honest plain tobacco. A bit strong, but very pleasant. A nice surprise!

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Very strong tobacco. If you have no tolerance for Vitamin N, don't bother. What you get is a very basic, dry, shag of burley. No toppings or casings so far as I can tell. The tobacco tastes like grass, faint walnut, shredded wheat, and black pepp... Read More
Strong Tobacco
January 25, 2019
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Wonderful nutty burley flavor all around. However, the nic hit is a punch to the throat and nostrils. It does work very well for kicking up other blends of tobacco. Try adding a few pinches to something dull or weak, and it will boost the flavor and ... Read More

[Tin/bag - Faint old shoe leather, dates/plumbs/ dried dark fruit, tiny bit of a plasticy smell. Ultra fine (hairlike) cut, smallest ribbons I have seen to date - threadlike. Dry just right, ready to smoke out of the pouch.] A little nutty a... Read More

Five brothers is a nice shag cut and it usually comes with a medium moisture. The smell tobacco me is a pure oats and honey smell. I didn't find the taste all that strong but there is a good nicotine punch. But not at all in a bad way. Now I said luc... Read More
Burley!
May 27, 2018
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Just straight burley in a shag cut. Very well packaged and great quality. I tried it just out of curiosity, too strong for me. If you like burley and a strong kick you will enjoy this.
Solid OTC
December 08, 2017
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Pack it tight and there’s no need to rehydrate as it burns very well. I like to mix five brothers with blends that don’t have enough nicotine. I also use this to break in pipes to build a very nice cake. Highly recommended
expected stronger
August 25, 2014
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
I heard this was the strongest stuff you could buy so I thought I'd try it out. I was disappointed. The flavor wasn't great and it wasn't as strong as I was hoping for.
Perfect For What I Need

I have a high nicotine tolerance. Like, problematically high. The only time I've ever felt any nicotine effects from pipe tobacco is when I smoked a HUGE bowl of C & D Redburn followed by a cigarette. That got me a little clammy. I kept seein... Read More
Nice and Simple

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
A classic straight Burley. Not fussy, not pretentious. Just a simple straight Burley shag with plenty of flavor and a decent amount of nicotine.

Add a little water to moisten the tobacco it is a great side chew. That is how I use it.
Vintage
September 18, 2020
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
This is a surprisingly deep and rich tobacco. It is definitely stout. My first impression was that it was an old school blend. After learning that it has been around since the late 1800s the vintage feeling I got from the tobacco made sense. A re... Read More
Rolling Tobacco
September 11, 2020
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
This tobacco is really a roll your own. When rolled it is good. When smoked in a pipe the initial light and a few drags are very good indeed. It gets harsher as the bowl smokes down.
Excellent pure Burley

Definitely a Top shelf leaf, very fresh tasting. Beautiful cut and extremely tasty. I wish I had tried this sooner.
perfect work blend

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Lights easily, stays lit very well. As everyone else said, it's straight up burley. I transitioned to pipes after 26 years of smoking cigarettes. This blend is perfect for satisfying that craving. Doesn't burn hot or bite me. Doesn't mess up my pipe.... Read More

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
I smoked 2 bowls plain and it is definitively too strong for me. The taste is good, pure and I like it for a while. However if I plan to smoke an entire bowl the last third is not my taste. However I like this tobacco to mix with aromatic tobacco esp... Read More

Bought this one by mistake. I received the best surprise of my life when I light a bow up. Wonderful burley flavor that was sublime. Also found it worked well to mix in with some aromatic blends that needed more body for my taste. Just don’t smoke ... Read More

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
I expected a lot more when I popped open the pouch. Five Brothers has an urban legend status as a super strong burley that will knock the most experienced piper on their butt. I'm not the most experienced piper. And it didn't knock me on anything. It... Read More

Find a MM cob, stuff it as full as you can (think Semois), light it and tamp, then puff away... Simple. Beware though, nicotine level is around the Royal Yacht level. GOOD STUFF!
Strong but Manageable
June 24, 2019
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Five brothers is an affordable straight burley with no top coat. Strong flavor, strong room note and strong nicotine. As advertised, not for the novice pipe smoker. Enjoyable when sipped. Great tobacco to kick up some weaker blends or for smoking... Read More
A Really Good Straight Burley

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
This is really good if you're looking for something that isn't complicated and just has a good old fashioned tobacco taste. Out of the pouch it has a really nice dark plum aroma. The cut is VERY thin, like pencil shavings. It is on the dry but very s... Read More

Straight forward simple burley
April 08, 2018
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
No fuss, no muss. Solid burley taste in a fast burning shag, and with nicotine to spare. Monochromatic? Yes. But that’s okay. I enjoy this as a quick smoke, and being a ‘burleyophile’, it’s a sure fire go-to when I’ve only a few minutes to enjoy a bo... Read More

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
Well, I must say that I like this tobacco. I thought I was pretty much immune to nicotine until I tried this. I love the flavor, the mellow smoking experience. I don't like the pouch aroma, and I really don't like the cut. The shag is like rolling t... Read More

I read the reviews, so when I received my order of 5 brothers i rehydrated it using a wet paper towel and clear wrap over it. 3 hours later, moist. Smoked it in my new Little Devil Acorn Cobb. Tiny bite yes, actually enjoyable first light taste. ... Read More

I love a high nic smoke. I was suspicious of this being an OTC and unfortunately I was right. I like burleys and I love nic so I though from word of mouth it would be a winner... to me the taste was like smoking a hand rolled cigarette, the smoke was... Read More
THE BEST OTC!!!!
February 28, 2015
Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
I have been looking for the best OTC pouch brand. I have tried Prince Albert, Carter Hall, Sir Walter Raleigh, Sail, John Bull, Borkum Riff. and this beats them all. I love the cut of this too, it packs really well in the pipe.

Product: Five Brothers Five Brothers 1.25oz
It's a simple blend, but a solid smoke. The very fine shag cut allows for easy packing and lighting. Not necessarily a positive or negative, but this is the fastest burning tobacco I have ever smoked, though it doesn't burn particularly hot. In terms... Read More
