Mystery Tobacco Review: March 2021

Welcome back to another episode of the Mystery Tobacco Review! While our blind taste-testing series failed to win any Golden Globe awards this year, we were honored to host our very own celebrity Inquisitor for this month's review: Former Smokingpipes employee, host of the Pipes Magazine Radio Show, and die-hard Disney aficionado, Mr. Brian Levine, Dr. of Pipes.

Tune in as Shane, Truett, and I smoke through a bowl of Brian's chosen mixture, and attempt to guess its components, manufacturer, and name. Did we guess it right? Or did Brian's reputation as a mad tobacco scientist leave us stumped? Watch the full video to find out.

Did you enjoy this month's Mystery Tobacco Review? Were you able to guess the blend? Leave us a comment below with your thoughts.

What is The Mystery Tobacco 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.

    • Rule #1: There are no rules ... more DIY blends

    • D. on March 28, 2021
    • Rule #2: Refer to rule #1.

    • @Oom Howard @D. There are no rules!And I do love it when "I'm pretty sure this doesn't exist" is as close as we can get. DIY or modified blends are the purest form of blindly reviewing! I was certain that I tasted DFKY on the cold draw and in the smoke, but it was just high percentage of Perique playing tricks on me.

    • Yeah, that perique seems pretty tricky. I always enjoy watching and learning something new. Always a pleasure.

    • You the man Shane!! I like your style. Very knowledgeable and humble. All you guys are great. Keep these reviews coming. To Andy's point about not having access to these blends: I agree. Use these videos to learn and build your knowledge. Thanks guys.

    • I know that some people didn't care for Mac Baren's HH Rustica flake, I like it. Sometimes I like to take 2 flakes of Rustica and 1 flake of Solani Virginia Flake and either fold and stuff them together or rub them out together. I find that the Solani adds just the right amount of sweetness (for me). I enjoy smoking it at a slow pace. I don't know if that would be considered a DIY blend, but I like it.
