Presbyterian: Reformation 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-054-0002

Presbyterian Mixture has been an iconic, all-day English blend for decades, blended before the first World War for Reverend Dr. John White, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1925 and 1929. Presbyterian Reformation, however, is quite different from Presbyterian Mixture, its name a play on words between the Protestant Reformation and this blend's reformative nature compared to the original. Comprising Burley, Virginia, and Turkish tobaccos, this Aromatic flake has been lightly cased with cocoa and mocha notes that elevate the natural flavors of its components while leaving it pleasingly aromatic.

... if you make a bitter old Calvinist a little sweeter, that's called a "United Presbyterian."

I can’t actually believe that whoever put this foul concoction together actually thought it fit for a pipe! The tin says‘Danish flavourings are added to…’, if by that they mean a tin note like a two day old diaper and a taste like said diaper in a ch... Read More

I received this in the mail this morning. Presbyterian is my top favorite and I was really interested in trying this version. This tastes like any number of drug store aromatics I've tried over the years. The topping overshadows the entire blend. I c... Read More

Like prayer, it's a sweetness to enjoy any time. The aroma is sure to please. All the sweetness of a goopy aromatic without the overbearing "goopy" sensation on the tongue. Mellow and relaxing with the tobacco's natural flavor intact, albeit in the b... Read More

Tin note of chocolate, apricots and a nutty like vanilla. Tobacco is a flake of marbled brown, tan and dark brown. Moisture content is great. Rubs out with a little effort. Burns slow with a few relights. The strength is mild to medium and nic is mil... Read More

Not sure what all the fuss is about. I think people like it because they're supposed to. They assume, "well it's a very longstanding and much-loved recipe so it MUST be good". But it's not that great. It's just okay. Good virginias, not much else goi... Read More

Absolutely beautiful blend. The dark fruit and chocolate notes are just enough, sweet on the finish. Oily a little on the tongue, but I like that so it’s a plus. Smokes well and has no problem burning all the way down to white ash. If you have not tr... Read More

...But it left me wanting. It's not bad. I actually like the topping. Brunello Flake is one of my favorite blends and this one falls a bit short for them being so similar. I do think this will benefit from age, so I haven't counted it out yet.
It's ok

I am going to be completely honest, did not liked it at all. The Mocha side of it is the sweet anisé smell to it as like the splash of Sambuca added to a cup of Espresso and Cocoa side of it, the little marshmallows people put into a cup of hot choc... Read More

Presentation: well-formed flakes measuring approximately 1.5 x 2.75“ and very thin. Pliable but not especially moist. Good. Tinned scent: mellow, sweet without being cloying, cocoa followed by fruit, perhaps cherry, but not citrus or banana. Prepar... Read More
