Mystery Tobacco Review: May 2022

Welcome back to the Mystery Tobacco Review! For this month's Inquisitor, we had an in-house volunteer: Mr. Dana Mahanay. Dana's one of our gracious customer service representatives and he also assists our restoration department as an estate pipe restorer — needless to say, he knows his stuff. This isn't Dana's first time in the Inquisitor's Chair either; in fact, last time he stumped us good with an aged tin of Awakened Elder. But this time is different... well, maybe. Tune in as Truett, Shane, and I smoke through a bowl of Dana's chosen mixture and attempt to guess its components, manufacturer, and name. Did we break Dana's perfect record? Or is this the episode that finally sends us packing? 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.

    • Andy did guess it right on the last before Shane revealed the blend. I say the win goes to Andy. Good show fellas.

    • Fun, as always. You guys are seldom stumped. Don't quit. I learn a lot through your monthly reviews.

    • Dana really got you guys this time. I think cutting the flakes, rubbing it and bagging it exposed it to oxygen impacting the flavor. It’s happened to me when leaving tobacco in my travel pouch for a few days that I rubbed to make it easier to pack when I’m on the road. Very funny episode! Please don’t resign! Ha ha

    • Hey guys... great try. I've stored a tin of OGS (180 degrees for 3 hours) and after it settles, it smokes much as you described what you experienced... highs are muted and becomes an easy smoking middle-of-the-road blend. I typically rub it out and use it in some of my own blending. Better luck next time!

    • "Stoved" not "stored"... stupid spellcheck.
