Robust and possessing a subdued sweetness, Cumberland, from G. L. Pease, is a delightfully orchestrated suite of American tobaccos. Red and matured Virginias establish a theme; dark fired Kentucky and a pianissimo of Perique create the variations. Pure, natural tobacco flavors are harmonized by delicate arpeggios and underscored by deep, resonant tones. The coda is lovely and lingering — a perfect finish to a rich performance. Best savored slowly.
The pipeful I’m smoking right now is the remains of an 8 oz tin I jarred three year ago. During that time Cumberland went from a slightly harsh vaper to a Virginia with an apricot flavored blend with a bit of pepperiness and a dark note of Kentucky... Read More. This is a complex blend in terms of flavor and has an in-your-face kind of strength. But it is altogether a very pleasant experience. The high level of nicotine is what keeps me from making it an all day smoke, though. If you like the buzz you will love this one. Read Less
The complexity of this blend is simply fabulous! After a few puffs I got this woodsy spice and chocolate flavor. Burns slow with only one re-light. For me this is an anytime of day blend. Not to moist with very little dottle at the bottom of the bowl... Read More. Has an excellent room note, praised by those sitting near by. I highly recommend this ESPECIALLY IF YOUR A JACKKNIFE PLUG FAN! Read Less
This VaPer is one of those sleeper blends I didn’t warm up to so much at first try (such as Escudo Navy Flake, James J Fox’s Provost, etc.), but bowl by bowl I came to truly appreciate. Infantry of mature and red Virginias carry this victory, with pe... Read Morerique and dark-fired Kentucky comprising the light cavalry on the periphery. And while G.L. Pease hasn’t delivered quite the number of great victories, to my liking, as Cornell & Diehl or Peterson has, with this blend they’ve made me smile, bowl after bowl.
At times while puffing this I contemplated the name and the general makeup of the blend and I imagined America’s fighting men puffing their Virginia tobacco as Burnside faced off with Frazer in the Battle of the Cumberland Gap, 1863. Rare insofar as it was a bloodless battle. I know...a bit fanciful, but so goes a typical smoking session in my world.
This will mantain a spot in my cellar as something I reach for when I want a smooth, easy smoke.

One of my favorites right now. Tin note is tobacco heaven. Very earthy, grass, barn, outdoors, leather. I get natural and sacred. A time gone by. Smokes similar, lights and catches easily and goes all the way to ash no problem. Just a joy.
Opened the tin and Jared it overnight. First smoke being enjoyed with a glass of burnt orange peel dropped in Bourbon. This has a nic kick for sure..not complaining about that. My impression is this is akin to smoking a fine cigar.If you appreciate t... Read Morehat then this one is for you because I'm savoring it. Read Less
Milder than the Jackknife plug, same great flavor!
A great after dinner smoke like Jackknife plug, milder flavor but just as good! The nicotine is there, the flavor is fantastic! If you find Jackknife too much, this is yours, otherwise, if you like this, you'll love Jackknife plug or Ready Rubbed, lo... Read Moreoking for more flavor? Try Triple play! Read Less
This is a very complex blend. With lighting this tobacco I didn't get a whole lot of flavor but about 1/4 through the bowl a pleasant hard wood favor with a little chocolate started to come out. As I kept smoking the wood flavor deepened with the a... Read Moreppearance of an English tea blend emerged. The tea took the lead through the middle of the bowl. Near the end a nice spicy note came out to finish. I only give this 4 stars due to the fact that it is quite strong and hit me all at once when I was at the end off the bowl. Granted, this might be due to me being a fairly new pipe smoker and not being used to stronger blend. Buy this tin, you won't be disappointed. Read Less
Go ahead and buy this, you know you will end up with it anyway...
I found this to be a nice pleasant smoke. It has a lot of flavor and is complex yet refined enough for the inexperienced smoker. Smoke it slow and steady and see how much flavor this affords oneself. Great stuff.
This is what Granny had in her corncob pipe. Well, maybe with a G.L. Pease California twist... But seriously, this transports this Southern boy back to the Cumberland plateau. Tin description is accurate, I think. Need a dictionary for those big ... Read Morewords. Read Less
I ordered a tin of this, and a buddy told me not to open it, to try some of his aged Cumberland first. Simply Amazing!! I smoke this in a churchwarden, and usually that means I have time to sit and relax, and slowly "sip" on my smoke. Cumbe...
