Sail - Aromatic (Green) 1.5oz
I am new to pipe smoking and have tried several different tobaccos already. Sail is the very first one to burn perfectly from the top char all the way down. The moisture level was as “Goldilocks” as it gets, with a very good pouch aroma. The room note is great, and the only area where it might lack is in the “robust flavor” department. I wouldn’t say that it is bland, but it is certainly smooth and mild. I think Sail succeeds at what it is trying to do. Giving pipe smokers a hassle free, pleasant experience. I can already tell that this will be a staple for me. Especially when I don’t want to do several relights. I almost think you could win a slow smoke contest with this stuff. I smoked it in my MM Country Gentleman cob, and it lasted about 40 minutes. The smoke I expelled would get a little thin, as a prompt to give it a tamp, and it kept on going. It took a few tries to get a get that top char, but once I had it, it smoked better than anything I have experienced all the way down. If you are a noob like me, I highly doubt you will be disappointed. I’m sure some veterans could find things to criticize, but it smoked better than anything I have tried so far - and I have tried many well known, popular (and more expensive) tobaccos. 4.5 out of 5 - highly recommend. I only removed half a star due to the very mild flavor. PS - it smokes so well that it can get a little hot on your tongue, watch out for that, ha-ha. Great stuff, though.
