Black Bayou Mist is a full-bodied Latakia blend made the traditional way. With the best Virginia grade tobaccos, the finest oriental leaves, dark fired Kentucky,a good pinch of Louisiana Perique and of course a good amount of smooth smoky Latakia. A full-flavored F&K blend, but not overly strong. A pleasant, gentle, and cool smoke.
I haven't been smoking pipes for long but am a long time cigar smoker. I stumbled upon this blend quite by accident and found that it was my favorite blend by far. I cannont extol its greatness too much. I am actively looking to buy every ounce of... Read More this I can find. If only I could convince F & K to start making this blend again I would buy 2 pounds per month..... lol Read Less
If I could smoke indoors I would brew some espresso to accompany this really nice Dark-Fired/English blend. A really nice strong smoke with complex tastes that need to be smoked more than once to fully enjoy it. I might edit this review sometime late... Read Morer to add another half star if it totally wins my tastebuds after a few more bowls.
Edit 2/23/2016: Raised it to 4.5 stars. Wonderful smoke! Read Less
I wasn't sure I was going to like the smoky smell and flavor of this blend, but I was happily wrong. I like to mix this with some Mac Baren ODF for an extra smoky treat. Very outdoorsy - smells like a campfire. Perfect for evenings around the fire... Read More pit! Read Less
I just recently started smoking pipes, so I have been trying various blends. I tried this one about a month ago and absolutely LOVED it. I went back to my local pipe shop to buy more and was told that they only had what was on hand as no one had pu... Read Morerchased it in years and the manufacturer had quit making it. I purchased every bit they had and went on the hunt for it online. So far I have found 7 pounds of it and have purchased every ounce I've found. It is, by far, my FAVORITE blend and I will buy it wherever I find it. It is the best smoke ever. God help everyone who likes it as I will outbid them all for it. Read Less
The Black Bayou Mist is a great blend of latakia, dark fired Kentucky, Va/per and orientals. The combination is very smooth and distinct. I am enjoying this right now in a corn cob pipe with a cup of coffee. If you enjoy latakia blends, give this ... Read Morea try. I have found a new favorite. Read Less
I was looking forward to this one, but it just didn't quite work out for me. It had a bit of a taste of a burning stick to it....and not necessarily a hickory or oak taste. Just plain stick. A little extra "more" of something might have mad... Read Moree the difference for me. The Dark Fired is there....but not enough to get excited about. The Latakia is there....but same story. The Perique is barely there. There just wasn't enough of anything, and it made me want more of something. But, I definitely know the Virginia is there from the minor case of tongue bite I got. Probably my fault, trying too hard to get a more decisive flavor. It's really not a BAD smoke. It is actually unique. But, it's just not for me. Read Less
Smoky Latakia up front, blended perfectly with tart oriental and tangy Virginia. The DF Kentucky settles down around the first third of the bowl. There it dances hand in hand with the subtle fruity perique, giving the blend a strong backbone and a ha... Read Morerdy campfire deliciousness. Each component is easily detected as this blend is deftly balanced. Tasty and creamy with good smoke output. Can be a bit harsh if pushed. Burns a bit fast, so take it extra slow. I load it up in a large bowl briar. This tobacco is, to me, a fantastic English, and now is one of my all time favorite blends. ETA: this isn’t an ‘all-day’ but in the words of the notorious ;-) JimInks, it’s repeatable. Read Less
This one I tried on a whim, glad I did. This blend makes a perfect morning smoke with black coffee. Smokes cool, burns good, very few if any re-lights. Packs good. Burns exceptionally well in a tall short stemmed billiard. I found it to have a f... Read Moreull flavor in my Sav Giaus 101 w/ balsa made the differance. If they have it in stock give it a try.

Needs to be dried out a bit to dissipate the pouch note of a burned down house. Not a bad smoke, smooth lightly smokey flavor which hopefully will improve with age.
