This is one of a kind! Reminds me of dark chocolate when preparing the flakes, both smell and appearance. This blend will satisfy your nicotine needs. The taste is absolutely amazing, I won't even try describe it (plenty of reviews already.) I just f... Read Moreelt the need to express what a wonderful blend this is. I don't care if you like aro's or English blends.... This will reward the smoker who truly loves the taste of tobacco! Absolutely essential!
Down side: Everyone seems to know how good this blend is and it's very hard to come by. If you see it, stock up and cellar as much a you can. It only gets better with age. Read Less
Stonehaven is without comparison. It is a finely crafted VaBur flake. The tin note will probably make any Virginia tobacco lover weak in the knees, massive wafts of dried plum/apricot typical of a fine fermented VA flake, with the heady sweetness f... Read Morerom the traecle topping. The smoke is very smooth, with very consistent medium strength through the bowl, with the typical bloom of more complex flavors in the 2nd 3rd. Peparation is all about drying time. They flakes are pretty thin, so when this stuff is properly dried it almost rubs itself out into shag. You don't want it straw dry, as a little moisture is necessary for this stuff to truely sing. I will always be on the lookout to add more Stonehaven to my cellar. Read Less
Personal favorite here.
Very flavorful without being overly complex. Don't need to think about this too much when smokin. Strong enough but never had tongue bite or any "nic-

Sampled from a three year old Mylar bag when purchased in 2010. The large flakes are neatly arranged in a clear plastic tray inside the bag. It is very dark & thinly sliced... needs drying out for sure. They were very moist from this eight ounce pouc... Read Moreh. An interesting flavor this one has... I tasted a little chocolate. This is & probably always will be my favorite VA/Bur. It is unquestionably the BSOM of VA/Bur blends.
It's a tangy, zesty, sweet smoke with a mild topping that enhances the flavor and allows it to deliver a cool, sweet, chocolate flavor that doesn't detract so much from the tobacco taste. Whatever, the smoke tasted good & I felt a cool, tingly sensation on my palate that felt... soothing. It left a pleasent aftertaste in my mouth.
For me, the taste is indescribably delicious. I like to fully rub out the flakes to remove the little stems. It burns relatively slow & delivers a soft, mild smoke with a good Vitamin N blast & is totally biteless & forgiving. Good flavor, for me, anyway & this should satisfy any demanding pipe smoker. Varying flavors & nuances derived therein will perk up your palate
Seems to take on a little sweeter note as the bowl progresses and Brother Burley's flavor becomes more dominant near the end. Can't see why anyone wouldn't like this. The nicotine content is fairly substantial... you'll be doing fine long before the bowl is finished. Read Less
I bought a tin of this at my Favorate B&M store,after a friend said it was better than blackpool.It's not very good,hard to rub out,really dry,smokes ok,but not a whole lot of flavor.I slow draw and some people said if you slow draw that you will...

My absolute favorite tobacco. That familiar delicious "jar" note of a fine aged VA flake only gives you a hint of what's to come.

this is probably the most unique tobacco I've had. I've tried many, many blends and have yet to run across anything remotely close to Stonehaven. this tobacco comes with some drying time for sure but it's worth it.

After all the hype and effort exerted to locate a bag of Stonehenge, I was a little disappointed by the smoke. The tin note was strong and delicious...very rich and damp...with made me even more excited to smoke. Once lit, the smoke was a bit single... Read More-minded to me. Maybe some time alone in the mason jar will help it mature a little...or maybe I'll let my portion dry out more prior to lighting if off next time. Either way, this one doesn't find it's way into my top blends right now. Read Less
