Daily Pick
August 20, 2017
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
This is my everyday smoke. It fits its description perfectly and is a smooth balkan with just the right amount of latakia to keep it flavorful. The virginia serves to mellow it out just enough to keep it in your bowl as long as you wish. I recommend ... Read More
The best
October 26, 2018
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
This is my absolute favorite blend. It is my all day smoke. I love that it is mild and smooth. The latakia is the star here, but it is not over powering. It has this nice musty room note that reminds me of an old wood panelled library. I have several... Read More
The essence of nasty
May 22, 2017
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
Sutliff has done it. This is the most deliciously nasty blend I've seen. Nasty, in the realm of the crust on a smoked brisket, black dark chocolate, or a good Dutch licorice. There is no perfect blend, but this rates a strong 4+.
Great!

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I was skeptical but now I'm thrilled I tried it. It's a nice break from a more tame everyday blend. Good strength and flavor. The wife doesn't mind the smell either.
A+

Totally lives up to the description and name exactly - a new favorite worth keeping in stock.
Flavorful but not overpowering
January 21, 2020
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
This one requires significant air drying, I suggest at least a couple hours. It's a finicky smoke if not dry enough. It's a tasty English blend, burns rich but cool when dry. Usually needs 0 or 1 relights if you don't overpack it. Balanced flavor, th... Read More
AMAZING

I'm not sure words can really do this tobacco justice. After letting it dry an bit, from first light to last puff, just an all around amazing smoke. I believe I just found my new everyday smoke.
A New Go To
October 23, 2018
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I absolutely love this blend. Is it Balkan or English? Does it really matter? The most interesting aspect is the development of the bowl towards the bottom. A super creamy and sweet finish that inspired me to pack another bowl. Not too heavy on the L... Read More

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
Love this Sutliff blend. A great everyday smoke. Only complaint is it's a teet on the wet side but nothing 10/15 minutes of drying can't cure. Good stuff citizens.
Outstanding...

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
Initially underwhelmed, I felt like I was sitting in a Women's Studies class, until halfway through the bowl the flavors hit me. Creamy, bitter chocolate, spice. Although it is a medium strength blend it really came through with what I would call dar... Read More
A Surprising Staple
February 08, 2020
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
If I'm being honest with you, I can almost always smell a typical Sutliff tobacco from a mile away. Typically, all of them have a similar tin note about them, English or aromatic. That said, I'm not a huge fan of most of Sutliff's stuff; usually that... Read More
Wonderful tobacco
October 29, 2018
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
The latakia really shines through most on this stuff, but if you focus a bit you can pick up the virgina too. The room tone is absolutely wonderful, I smoke this stuff in my truck all the time to sort of ghost the scent into all my upholstery. I woul... Read More

Taste: The taste of a burning fireplace much like that of an old professor's classroom. Note: Much like that of a fire without being overbearing in open areas. Bite: Let it dry out first, but not until its brittle, just drier than received. Other th... Read More
Great Beginner English Blend

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I normally do not leave reviews for things. But I thought I would on this one as most of the reviews seem to be from more experienced smokers and a beginner like myself may be unsure about this blend. PULL THE TRIGGER. I just took up the pipe about a... Read More

Latakia comes out strong but the mix is so pleasant and smooth that is has become an all day smoke.
Really Good

It’s really smooth . It’s a great blend I could smoke this all day
Mild
March 22, 2021
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
This blend is such a mild English, the Latakia is barely there. It's mild to the point of blandness.
Solid English blend
March 22, 2021
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I offered this to a friend with no experience of English blends. He liked it in fact. Yes, the amount of Latakia is considerable but it blends well with yellow virginias and maybe orientals that play in the background. There are other great English b... Read More

I was a big fan of McClelland Dark English Full and was saddened when it was no more. In search of a substitute, I eventually tried this blend. Although not as full bodied as the McClelland blend, this is a very nice substitute. Think of it as a m... Read More
Uncomplicated
March 01, 2021
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I like it. I turn to this blend when I want a little bit of a plain, uncomplicated smoke. I'd classify it as a bit more of a balkan blend than a typical english, but that's not a problem. What is a problem is that every now and then I pick up some ki... Read More
Great English

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
As I have found with most sutliff products, I have to let it dry a bit before packing. After it is lit though, this is easily my favorite sutliff tobacco. Great latakia content!
A Perfect English Blend
November 24, 2020
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
Sutliff Old Professor is a very flavorful and balanced blend. The smoky flavors of Latakia, spiciness of Turkish and the sweetness of Virginias blend together nicely and produce a cool flavorful smoke with low amount of nicotine. I truly enjoy smo... Read More

Very Relaxing

Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
I left it out to dry... probably a bit longer than I should have (honestly forgot about it), but was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and dry the smoke was. Very relaxing smoke, I’ll be purchasing this in bulk, for sure!
Very Nice

I go through phases of aromatics and English blends and this has become my #1 English blend now that McClelland is gone (cry!). It's very smooth and the amount of Latakia is just right. I thought I might miss the perique, but I think that's what ma... Read More

I agree with everyone, a bit moist when first opened, but still excellent. This is my second Sutliff blend, and so far, it's two for two! Sutliff is my new favorite brand!
Unsatisfying
September 06, 2018
Product: Sutliff 526 - Old Professor Bulk
As an old professor, this was a natural choice for me to try. It is not agreeable to my palate: I find it to be too harsh for my taste, with leaving behind an oily aftertaste. It'll go into the storage jar...

Pouch note suggests English, but the smoking experience is so incredibly mild that I can't think of an audience that would enjoy this except maybe aromatic smokers looking to try out something with Latakia. It really feels like a drug store version ... Read More

I've tried other's by Sutliff and since I prefer English/Balkan blends I thought I'd try this. So,If I was out of my favorite blend, this would be a good backup to have around.

I use to get this in the 90's when I started smoking a pipe. Or something with a similar name. I came back to it unfortunately. It doesn't have much of a taste and burns hot with a strong bite. Ageing it a few months cuts down on the bite and tastes... Read More

Dry taste, did not deliver much. I'll stick with the "tend to also" smokes.
