Rattray's: Red Rapparee 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-055-0018

Exhilarating and elusive, quaint and seductive. Prepared from choice Red Virginias, dusted with Latakia, and heavily flavored with Orientals, giving it a red tinge. It burns in the pipe with the spontaneity of a fine cigar.

I smoked a shit load of this stuff in college back in the 80s in Norman, OK. Bought it at the Tobacco Barn at Sooners Fashion Mall. Bring back fond memories. Taste the same: Latakia based, medium, slightly tangy and sharp but a steady all-day Englis... Read More

I only review tobacco’s I have positive things to say about and every Rattray’s blend I’ve tried has been worthy of review. Although made by K&K in Germany (along with just about every overseas blend) Rattray’s has its history in Scotland. These toba... Read More

Smooth smoking tobacco with no bite. My only suggestion with this Rattray's blend is to mix the tobacco well in a bowl before enjoying. Then store back in the can. For some reason my last 2 tins were not mixed very well. But, this is a very satisfyin... Read More

I found this to be a mild, pleasant smoke. Faint sweetness and background of Latakia. Nice billows of smoke from the Cavendish...clean burning... This is a very mild sipping blend, good room note, a little too mild for my wheelhouse but a nice chang... Read More

Rattray's knocks them all out of the park. Their blends are just fantastic. You are in rapture when you get a bowl of this smoking cool in a great pipe.

The VA's and Latakia, just absolutely compliment each other in this blend and then the Orientals come through, making this a great all day smoke, somewhat creamy and a very rich flavoured smoke.
Dream like blend.

On my latest Pipe Club meeting a fellow-member offered us one of his treasures: a RED RAPPAREE of 1974. He carefully kept the tin sealed and cellared for 42 years! Of course, this old-timer is appreciably different from a new one. Pleasant tin note a... Read More

Wow! The flavors in this tobacco are wild. I love it. I have never gotten the same asortment of flavors from this tobacco twice in a row. Some people might not like that because they want/expect consistency. Well, it is consistently great. I love the... Read More

RRR pipes magic notes as it burns down the bowl. Sometimes sweet, sometimes salty, sometimes smoky; sometimes it all melds together and tastes like salty smoked fruit. The present incarnation of Red Rap is a milder version of what it was years ago;... Read More

Lucky that this 100 year old classic is still made. Currently have a 10 year old tin open, and it is unique. There is nothing else similar to it. The sharpness in the aged tin has diminished enough to makes this fairly mild on the palate. The aroma i... Read More

Fantastic blend. I understand now why this tobacco is never in stock. Will pick up several tins whenever it is available at SP.

Best blend ever. Yeah it's that good. Every bowl is a reminder of what it's all about. An absolutely perfect amount of each tobacco. It's like a great Balkan blend with mellow Red Virginias, a nice amount of Latakia without overdoing it, just a touch... Read More

I am referring to the product description with the title. I had a few really great experiences with this blend and a few bad ones (sometimes in the same bowl). I assume that if the right pipe/packing method/smoking cadence was found, it could be cons... Read More
