Mystery Review: March 2020

Welcome back to The Mystery Tobacco Review! Grab some popcorn, a cold beverage, and a pipe, because this episode is a long one. After months of being duped, tricked, and beguiled, it was finally my turn to sit in the Inquisitor's Chair and choose one blend for the guys to blind review. Of course, taking my place on the panel this month is C&D's Head Blender Jeremy Reeves. Will Jeremy's super palate be enough to save the guys from weeks of planning on my part? Or will I finally taste some sweet, sweet revenge? Watch the full video to find out.

What did you think of the review? Did you guess it right? Don't forget to share your thoughts in the comments below.

*A quick note for those watching at home: We filmed this episode several weeks ago, before it was encouraged to practice social distancing. We're still currently working on a way to safely bring you next month's episode without a hitch. Thanks for your patience.

What is The Mystery Review?

For those of you unfamiliar with this little game, each month one member of our team selects a tobacco for us to review in a blind taste-test. Then we gather around the camera, scratch our heads, and smoke, all while attempting to guess the mysterious mixture's components, origins, and name. There's only one rule: There are no rules.

    • Great Video...nice to see Jeremy smoking the clay pipe, he didn't say anything about it though...C&D scraps...isn't that Boneyard?

    • @Old Timer We're glad you enjoyed it! While they were joking that Andy's blend of different tobaccos was good enough to be a blend on it's own, it is similar to the Grand Croupier blends. Grand Croupier blends are made from a random assortment of like blends (Boneyard is all English-based for example). Andy’s was a little different because his mixture was from several manufacturers and regions. It definitely made for a great mystery review this month!

    • If you don't know what the tobacco is how do you know what pipe to smoke it in?

    • I think this is a testament to how good you three are at blind tasting. You were all correct but not sure enough to pinpoint it even towards the end. He gave you an impossible task and you were as correct as you could possibly be. Well done, gentlemen. Well done.
