Grand Croupier: Double Down Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 005-651-0003

In one of his famous songs, Johnny Cash explained how to acquire a Cadillac on the cheap: mixing and matching one purloined part at a time from the assembly line. The results may have been a bit funny-looking, but every piece was quality. In a similar spirit (minus the purloining bit), Grand Croupier's Double Down is assembled from all-sorts of quality Virginia/Burley blends; the price is low, the proportions are a spin of the wheel, but the components are quality, coming as they do from an artisanal blending house.

作为其他调配草剩下的边角料混合,每次的上架的基草调配比例和风味可能都不太一样,为此无法给出客观的品吸报告。适合对风味没太多固定追求只在乎性价比的斗客,开盲盒也是一种乐趣~

I probably purchase more of this blend than any other on the Smoking Pipes' website. Similar to Low Country's Virginia and Burley, but smoother and a tad lighter on the Vitamin N. I've smoked pounds of this stuff over the years, and it's always con... Read More

完美的牛眼与黄花维吉尼亚混合

Product: Grand Croupier Double Down Bulk
我收到了某种揉碎的牛眼和黄花维吉尼亚的混合。牛眼看起来是ps403,v是黄花烟劲很大,我感觉里面没有白肋。

我的第一个订单是在2024年烟斗节下的2磅,收到后是较规整统一的粗丝带,像是切片打散的,试了一下感觉非常惊艳!主体是面包香加蜜甜,完全超过我的预期!最近看了一下降价了,17一磅,赶紧又买了2磅,希望这批和上次的一样好!

介绍说是CD边角余料的混合物,有3个分类,这是VB。如果是囤草的话,据说很难买到同一批次、同一味道的斗草,所以一切让上天来安排。这一批次B的比例较高,略显辛辣,恰恰get到我的点,完美,而且这价格还要啥自行车?必须囤一些,过几年开出来看看,也是一种乐趣。

没有突出味道,但持续的蜜甜香以及一点奶香,就证明他绝对值得购买,后面三分之一四分之一的地方不行。但是这价格,抽一半丢一半都可以。
性价比还行

Product: Grand Croupier Double Down Bulk
收到的时候有点失望,因为说是vb,但是我闻到了拉草味道,抽吸的时候很顺畅,味道也有点类似某种轻拉,相对来说性价比还不错,但是,我想要的不是轻拉啊,所以给这些分
物超所值,yes

相对于价格而言,烟草的味道还是可以的。你可能得不到蛋糕上的草莓,但是你可以尝到这块蛋糕,你懂我的意思吗! 放置一年以后重新点燃,天哪,更上一层楼,真的,简直不要太好,不比任何一款更贵的草差,好草

淡淡甜味及明显的坚果烤面包香味,b草明显占主导,细细品味能抽到可可及咖啡的香味,烟气饱满,满足感较好,罐藏陈化一段时间烟气更淳厚
别被价格骗了

陈化个半年,这草更加醇香,面包香,柑橘味,买了几个批次,但每次都不会让你失望,总有惊喜等着你

这款草很好抽,烟气饱满香甜,过鼻无压力,抽进嘴里没杂味,虽然是边角料混合的,但是真的很好抽,给4.5分是草到手里后草很干,要自己给回湿

价格便宜 品质随缘

Product: Grand Croupier Double Down Bulk
价格在哪里放着,每次购买的具体品质不一样,随缘。 放上3-5个月再抽味道会好些,V的香甜很容易尝到,一斗下来尾段差些。不咬舌、斗温不高、烟气适中。 作为口粮 与其他搭配

Great for this price. Nothing outstanding, but all you need to have from VA+Burley blend is there: sweetness of VA and woody-earthy Burley complimenting each other harmoniously. The blend is smooth, mild and light, so not for those who like medium a... Read More

Product: Grand Croupier Double Down Bulk
不看价格谈品质是在耍流氓,能够品尝出弗吉尼亚的满足感,后段的味道会有些复杂并不享受,灭火后从新点火会更加明显,但是尾段不抽就好,这个价格也并不会心疼。
听说每一批都不太一样

性价比实在是高,我大量囤了。希望放放上一两年能够有惊喜,到手抽吸没有很好,但也不差

开袋是浓浓的麦片香,烟丝干燥,直接装斗,燃烧很快,抽吸几口后淡甜,尾端杂味重,这时候就可以停了。价格无敌

I loaded up a new Old Dominion cob and was surprised at the sweet nutty flavor. I would say my bag was about 70% Burley, 30% Virginia...great quality. For the price it is simply outstanding.

Different Kinds of bright Tobaccos mixed (I guess Virginias, Burleys, Orientals and Perique). The cut looks like it was made at Cornell & Diehl, all broad cut, not Flake or ready rubbed. That tobacco tastes surprisingly good and very natural. It ... Read More

很常规的白肋草那股咸香坚果花生味,有点闹鬼书店那味儿但没有那么猛。我不是一个白肋爱好者但不用怀疑绝对是对得起这价格的,不难抽,可以偶尔调剂来一斗

我赌了三次,大概都是统一批次,都是某种切片的边角料,味道很香,刚点火,烤面包很浓,斗温还可以,之前在抖音好多说开袋很臭,我这几单都很好,果香很重,买了64盎司,非常满意,以后可以当口粮了,主要价格很便宜,够抽一年多的了,很愉快的一次购物

没有必要来赌他的味道,不辣,不甜,没有任何味道,干,不潮,不咬,枯草一把,不值得期待。 强烈不推荐国友选择这个。
性价比高

Product: Grand Croupier Double Down Bulk
对于这款草来说已经作为我的口粮,不要因为价格低就觉得不好。这个价格对应的口感还是不错的,尤其是前段中断,尾端辛辣感上升,斗闻不高,补火次数不多,室韵较好。如果有时间可以陈化半年以上会更好。 每一批次的口感质量参差不齐,就看运气人品了
口感一般,没有特别味道
