Welcome back to another episode of the Mystery Tobacco Review! For this month's review, we were honored to have our Writer and Editor Chuck Stanion serve as our Inquisitor, selecting one blend for us to review in a blind taste test. Chuck was the Editor of Pipes & tobaccos magazine for over 20 years before joining us at Smokingpipes, and if you've read any of his articles on the site, it's clear that this man knows his stuff. While he prefers Virginia/Perique blends, his cellar is vast and eclectic, so we knew he had something special in store for us. Tune in as Shane, Truett, and I smoke a bowl of Chuck's chosen mixture and attempt to guess its components, country of origin, manufacturer, and name. Did we guess it right? Or did Chuck leave us questioning the accuracy of our so-called discerning palates? Watch the full video to find out.

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.
