Previously known as an A&C Peterson blend, No.150 Mark Twain now flies under the Sutliff banner. A Danish-style aromatic, this mix of black Cavendish, Burley, and Virginia is known for its creamy aromatic flavors and mellow strength, making for an easy smoke and a pleasing room note.
For the vaginae that can't handle full flavored aeros, this is neutral ground. Very pleasant smoke that has a hint of laziness in it. Laying in a hammock while reading a good book preferably by Samuel Clemens is the epitome of smoking pleasure! Very ... Read Moremild and sweet texture with the creaminess of a nougat that has a dash of some kind of liqueur for a noticable tang on the end of a draw. Pretty f*****g mild and hardly any ghosting effect. Almost makes me want to be accommodating in my mannerisms of speech! I said almost f*****s. Heh ha! Read Less
A nice blend that reminds me of one of the Lane Limited blends and or Carolina Deluxe. It’s a Mild darkish chocolate flavor, probably including some vanilla, and I think a small touch of a fruity berry like flavor. Its tied together in an unoverpowe...

I however add that although the name Mark Twain is what caught my attention, I could have sworn he smoked English Blends. … Could be wrong.

I finded perfect for me. This aromatic tobacco is not sticky and its very fresh. Soft flavor and burns very well. Very interesting. I pretty sure that this tobacco will be part of mi cellar for long time!.
Love the aroma unlit. Burns to a fine dry powder. Not harsh or hit burning. Not as much flavor as aroma. Might be able to tone down a sweet blend with it? Want to smoke a few more bowls before I pass judgement.
It's pleasant and it's mild-- not as sweet as the pouch note suggests. The Mark Twain blend reminds me of a nougat/amaretto mixture I used to blend years and years ago and its main strengths are a very nice room note and not a lot of thought. This on...

I just got this and I can't say I've ever been so impressed by a flavorful tobacco. I'm usually a very sweet Aro guy. I really want a punch of flavor in my tobacco and sweet has been the only way I can get it without overloading on latakia. This is... Read Moren't sweet, but it is creamy and I loved it. Just a very nice balanced blend with a great room not. This is going to be my fall go-to for a bit and I'm ordering more now! Read Less
I'll admit, I got it because I'm a Twain fan and because of the overall good reviews.
Its not a strong blend. It has a good mild taste and is an easy smoke.
Tasted much better after jarring for a few weeks.
Most enjoyable blend.Smooth and consistent all the way to the end with no surprises as in where's the taste I started out with. Great taste and aroma.Almost let back into the house with this one.Highly recommended.Will buy lots more.
Received this today and tried a bowl of it, too much moisture for my taste, but has a very good taste. Lit up, smoked a little, then let it sit for about an hour to dry. Lit up again and am very pleased with this tobacco. A very comfortable smoke, ev... Read Moreerything about it is very good, just needed a little drying. Read Less
A fellow pipe smoker here reviewed this blend by saying: "If you don't like this tobacco, you don't like smoking a pipe!"
That's what made me try this blend, and that gentleman was 100% right!
I'm a Captain Black original smoker for years; ... Read Moreyes I keep other blends on hand for a change of pace, but the Captain was my mainstay...until now! Mark Twain is now tied for first place in my rotation and I will keep equal amounts on hand to rotate every other pouch!
A delightfully mellow and flavorful smoke with never a bite. Consistant balanced flavor with Ansi, light coco and a faint hint of vanilla that while predominant still allows tobacco through. But make no mistake! It is 100% American aromatic so tasty and sweet you'll be craving your next bowl as soon as you finish your last!
In my 45 years of pipe smoking this blend is the one that was a hit from the first puff! The only one I would ever place next to my beloved Captain Black; which is very hard for me to do. I'm picky as heck and only the Captain grabbed me on the first puff like this one!
I'll always try this or that blend occasionally but Mark Twain is now my other main daily pipe tobacco! If you love a good aromatic that you can smoke all day and want more, buy some Mark Twain! Read Less
I am a longtime fan of Sutliff tobaccos and Mark Twain is no exception. A delightfully pleasing aromatic! Vanilla seems to predominate, but there are other good things going on underneath.

Did this used to be marketed (or labeled) as MT150? I remember it having almost an anise or licorice flavor. It was my "go to" in my early days of smoking (30 years ago). I think I'm going to get some and see if it brings back any memor... Read Moreies... Read Less
It's actually fitting that this will be my first review here: This was the first aromatic blend that I bought for myself at a local pipe shop some 20 years ago when I started smoking. Out of the collection of jars (some maintained better than other... Read Mores) this one seemed to get heavy traffic (at least the jar was one of the cleanist) and I really fell in love with the smell and the look of the cut immediately. Still can't really put my finger on it.. Nutty, Bourbony.. hint of cherry cordial and caramel.. hmm. Very mild danish- I should warn that it has a sidestream smell that may have some odd notes from time to time, though maybe that's just me. It's still, for me, a cut above many of the other comparable bulkblends- a true jewel in the sutliff cap. Anywho, I'd forgotten all about it for years and years under other more prominant blends until I wandered into a pipe store that ended up being a place that had been opened by a former employee of that same former store! So, I am another customer that called up SP to ask about it and I'm a bit thunderstruck to now see it here. Good customer handling guys, for sure! Read Less
If you don't like this you don't like smoking a pipe.
The people at Smokingpines.com went out of their way to stock this after my humble customer request for it apparently alerted them to it's existence.
