After 20 years, and after having gone through every proverbial phase of pipe smoking- from aromatics to English, to fine aged Virginias... I came back around to old-fashioned, lightly topped burleys. Of the many great OTCs, Velvet is my favorite. L... Read More

Another good codger blend. Sweet smelling of the tin. Nothing but compliments from everybody around the smoke.

I am a middle of the road smoker, favouring light to medium English blends and modest aromatics. This is one of the latter. It is definitely not pretentious, but it is not really like Captain Black -- a blue collar blend that will work for you in m... Read More

And its definitely a hit for me! This is a great daily smoke. Its been around for quite some time and you either like it or you don't. For the price, its worth a try.

As much as I love TK6, Bob's Chocolate Flake, and my remaining stash of Friends, Velvet remains my all time favorite blend. It's as smooth as the name suggests, flavorful, unpretentious, and has a terrific room note. I have more Velvet in my cellar t... Read More

[Tin/bag - Wow, overpowering whiskey/bourbon. After several whiffs, I can start to catch a little dark sugar and some sweetness. Soft to the touch, cube cut that does give a sense of Velvet with its fluffiness.] Mild Burley with slight fruit no... Read More

When I started smoking Velvet pipe tobacco, I had explored every type of blend except Burley. On rare occasions when I had tried Burley blends, it had been too harsh, too cigarette-ish, or just plain tasted ...well, unpleasant. It wasn't the Burley o... Read More

Product: Velvet Velvet 1.5oz
This is not a bad OTC. It's just not as good as Half and Half in my opinion. The two are very similar in cut and taste, but Velvet is missing the extra anise flavor I love. It also has more of a bite. It's very mild, so I always mix in a little F... Read More

Overall I enjoyed smoking this tobacco. I did receive a few complaints roomnote wise however which kind of surprised me. I would probably choose a different tobacco in this range next time but I wouldn’t shy away from this in a pinch.

This is a very low quality tobacco, infused with the essence of play-doh. Tobacco should probably not be infantalizing, but this one seems to be marketed for toddlers. The play-doh notes dissipate halfway through the bowl and you are left with stale... Read More

I love Prince Albert. I thought that meant I would like Velvet as well.... but... it's not for me. I get bit every bowl and the flavor isn't worth the work.

Taste like burley and propyleneglycol. Haunted bookshop has a similar flavor profile sans the glycol and is by far it’s superior. If you’re looking specifically for a Codger blend go for Sir Walter Raleigh.

I tried giving this 4 stars but for some reason it got stuck on 3.5. I don't know a single person that's ever been a pipe smoker. No saintly grandfather, no beatnik uncle. I have zero formative memories of pipes or smells. But smoking velvet makes... Read More

Granted, I haven't smoked this stuff since it was sold in 1.5 oz. tins decades ago , but I doubt they've changed their recipe since then. On a par with Prince Albert, which isn't saying much. The miracle is that it's lasted this long. Much bette... Read More
