Reiner: Blend No. 71 100g

Product Number: 003-056-0005

Reiner pipe tobaccos are all blended based on R.L. Will's historic recipes. Rudiger L. Will grew up in Germany and spent his formative years around his father's tobacco factory; he could often be found exploring the warehouse and naturally developed a keen sense for different types of tobaccos and their varying nuances. In the 1960s, Rudiger joined his father and managed tobacco production, eventually developing the flavor casings for Borkum Riff's first four blends. Over the subsequent decades, he furthered his mark on the pipe-smoking world, creating Reiner and Solani pipe tobaccos, as well as a line of handmade pipes alongside pipe maker Reiner Klein, branded as The Pipe Art Design.

Reiner's Blend No. 71 is a special blend of Golden Virginias, White Burley, and a touch of Perique to make things interesting. Pressed into long flakes, sliced, then rolled in the tin in long strips, it offers a bold taste sure to please those who prefer traditional VA/Per mixtures, with a light casing of honey and orange to complement the tobaccos' natural flavors.

Great Reference Point

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
The "paint can" tin is the best in the business and there is no need to transfer the tobacco into a mason jar, as it will hold the moisture level perfectly. The tobacco comes in long, rolled up flakes and the moisture level is just how I li... Read More
Premium Tobacco

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
Everything about this tobacco is awesome. The paint can is fantastic. The long flake is gorgeous and perfect moisture right out of the tin. The tin note is beautiful. And the taste is super bready. To me this tastes like toasted rye bread. I don't g... Read More
Very good

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
This is similar to Orlik Golden Sliced but very much better. It has a richer, more complex flavor. It is slightly expensive but worth the price.

Good but mild
April 13, 2017
Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
I don't believe this has a "wollop of nicotine" as some claim, but I suspect some folks are more susceptible to nicotine than others, so take that into consideration. It's also not Orlik Golden Sliced by another name. I believe the Orlik ... Read More

Great Flake
February 06, 2020
Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
Simply a great, mild bready flake. Similar to Orlik Golden Sliced, but vastly superior in taste and presentation. I award this flake best in class. I constantly compare newly acquired flakes to Long Golden Flake. And they all fail to stand up to ... Read More
almost a cult tobacco

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
First off its not orlik golden sliced. Its similar, sort of. But the Orlik has very little little there was an ongoing dispute as to whether it had any or not. This, the Reiners, has a fare amount. Its not Beacon Extra by any means, but ... Read More
Orlik in a different tin
September 24, 2016
Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
This is just Orlik Golden Sliced in a different tin with twice the price. Same thing for Drew Estates Gatsby Flake - these people just buy the Orlik, perhaps spray it with a slightly different flavor, then charge higher prices.
Simply the Best

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
This is simply one of the best tobacco blends in my rotation. I have smoked this blend for years and always have a few tins of it in stock. It is a bit pricy, but worth the price. The subtle orange/honey topping plays well with the other components c... Read More

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
I did a glowing review previously on a very similar tobacco, in my opinion, to this one. That tobacco would be Erinmore Flake. In fact, this tobacco is nearly identical in all of it's smoking characteristics to Erinmore Flake, it just does it all a l... Read More

This one is rarely mentioned when people ask about virgins based blends. I’m not sure why. It’s one of the best offerings currently available.
A Gold Standard in Virginia Tobaccos

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
The Reiner is absolutely fantastic. I love the paint-can tin - I found it helps preserve the moisture better than the typical twist-lid. You could consider this a high-grade Orlik. It maybe has less Perique. The Reiner is a fuller smoke, burns co... Read More
This is delicious
April 26, 2020
Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
But I liked this so well that I have to comment. I'm not generally a "straight Virginia" smoker. I like my latakia and perique and usually don't care for blends without them. This tobacco changed my mind. On opening the tin, I found these l... Read More

This is desert island blend (at least until I discover my next favorite). The sweet bright Virginias are focus with the light honey and orange flavoring there to bring out the natural sweet characteristics of said Virginias. The Perique is not too n... Read More
This is NOT Orlik Golden Sliced
October 31, 2019
Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
It’s a VAper, of sorts, but that is where the similarities end. Is it perfect... nope... but it’s close, and very enjoyable. If you like good Virginia tobacco in the realm of Orlik GS, than you should also give this a try for something just a littl... Read More

Been smoking Reiner's Long Golden Flake for several years now. Always delivers exactly where I want it to. Similar to Orlik's Golden Sliced as other reviewers have mentioned, but still in a class of it's own..IMO. Smokes great in my vintage Savinelli... Read More

I'm a flake fan, VA Flakes, DFK Flakes, VA/Per Flakes, etc. I rate Erinmore Flake and Orlik Golden Sliced highly and smoke both regularly. But, I had a favorite that sadly did not last long...Drew Estates: Gatsby Luxury Flake. When I read the Drew Es... Read More

This is a great summer tobacco. The tobacco is very mild and makes it perfect for a hot summer day. This tobacco in my mind is the premium version of Orlik (as others have alluded).

Anyone who thinks this is Orlik is just not a veteran smoker. The Reiner is a unique blend. The burley isnt very noticeable , nor is the very mild orange added to it.Its mostly Virginia of a very high quality....mostly lemon Id guess ...and a hint ... Read More

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
This is on the savory side of the yellow VAs, with a noticeable black pepper note in the tin and on the tongue. The burley will nip you if you start ignoring your cadence, but generally this is a happy, easy blend to hang out with, especially on a ho... Read More

For a flakophile as myself, this is something you'd want to always have around. A coarse, well-pressed flake, medium in its shade of brown, this flake has a most unique taste of something like salted caramel (albeit very mild). The moisture is perfec... Read More

Product: Reiner Blend No. 71 100g
Start here if you want to know what a proper Burley/Virgina Perique blend tastes like. This blend is very smooth and creamy, due the burley, with a solid whollop of nicotine, useful for waking the dead (read: myself at 7am), and then progresses into... Read More
