Excellent OTC

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
Very nice blend for just a normal relaxing smoke. Not complex and just straight forward tobacco. One of my favorite OTCs.

I wanted to like this. I like cheap and simple nearly as much as I like olde tymme, but the casing on this blend was unbearable. In just a few puffs, my soft palate was very irritated. Velvet had the same effect on me..

I have been smoking pipe for over 50yrs and have to laugh at the newbies looking for thstbiltimste over priced smoke to impress other fair weather smokers. As a morning smoke this is just fine. I smoke the Frogmorton series in the afternoon and even... Read More

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
A no-nonsense American blend. It's granulated for easy and speedy packing. The taste is slightly nutty, a little fruity (perhaps cherry), and not prone to biting. There are blends that are complex beyond the words of pipe enthusiast, then there are b... Read More
Unique Codger Blend

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
A simple and no-nonsense codger blend. I initially found it bland and relatively flavorless, but after developing a strong fondness for Sir Walter Raleigh, I decided to give this OTC another go. It’s very burley-forward, which is a good thing and pr... Read More

Lately, I've been strolling down Codger Lane quite a bit. After years of seeking only premium tins like anything less was not worth my time, I've learned that the more I think I know about tobacco, the more I have yet to learn. To my surprise, with r... Read More

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
The first time I smoked this, I didn't like it. Very different from what I was used to. But! Came back months later on a whim and changed my mind. Super mild & straightforward. Flavor is uncomplicated, etc. etc. Would recommend. Delightful smell in t... Read More

I don't really agree with the description of this tobacco. I think it's rather flavorful, kind of a floral taste. Really pleasing room note. It's not a strong tobacco but it is a great smoke. No wonder it has been around for ever and a day.
Great!

I've tried all of the "classic" olde tyme blends and genuinely wonder what most of them are still doing around. Of the lot, this is the only one to which I can return with impunity.

Anisette and spicy peppermint over a nutty flavor. This is a great aromatic that has stood the test of time.
Great for all day

I would have given it a perfect review, but I received mine just a tad too moist. Let it dry for about 15 min and it's good to go. It's my favorite tobacco for an all day smoke working outside or just relaxing inside. I'm planning on cellaring some f... Read More

This was a pleasant surprise. It smells like honey. It could be my every day smoke.
Unsmokable

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
This isn't the old skool blend that I remembered. The topping is caustic. I literally could only smoke a few puffs after lighting. I couldn't bring myself to smoke it any further. I had to throw it out.

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
It's another old timer blend and I wanted to like it but it has so much topping I can't enjoy the actual tobacco. The flavoring faded out somewhere halfway down my MM Sawyer corn cob but the topping had irritated my mouth so much I could hardly taste... Read More

Granted this was the first pipe tobacco I tried when I bought my pipe. I almost gave up all together. Thankfully I didn't and ordered some good tobacco. Maybe I'll give it another go at a later date but at this current time I not in any hurry to try ... Read More

Here's a little secret: I 1st started pipe smoking way back 2003 and this was the 1st blend I tried out of a cheap China made rosewood pipe. It was like smoking something beautiful and beyond words for me. (Because I was a cigarette smoker before) . ... Read More

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
This is one of those good, dependable all day smokes that your grandfather probably enjoyed. I think people over estimate this tobacco and then end up dissappointed. This is a decent OTC burley blend, it is not complex, nor is it very strong, but if ... Read More

This is the third classic drug store blend that I've tried. I am not impressed with it. It was sweet but had an aroma very similar to cigarettes.

Ok so I dove in and tried something different. Purchased a 1.5 oz bag, filled my pipe, took about 10 puffs, uttered some profanities under my breath, emptied my bowl in the toilet, threw the bag in the trash, and filled my bowl with some good Frog Mo... Read More

This is a great tobacco. Do not head the negative reviews. It is a light, smooth smoke. A gentle and relaxing joy. No, it is not strong, not really aromatic, and no bite. You can smoke it all day, and not get tired of its taste and smell. Much ... Read More

Starts off with great smell and taste, but it all fades away with age, and just has a tiny bit of character, probably not buying more.
Better Than Last Time,but still harsh.

Nice smoke, no tongue bite and smokes to the end of the bowl. Better than a lot of more expensive pipe shop blends.

Taste profile is much the same, but toned down a tad and unlike the old Pinkerton formulation, it does not bite.
Pleasantly Surprised

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
Half & Half is a very nice cherry aromatic. It's not as heavily cased or sticky as your typical cavendish based blends. From the pouch, you get very sweet chocolate and cherry, along with a nuttiness that's reminiscent of Carter Hall. The cherry ... Read More
Old Time Favorite

Product: Half and Half Half and Half 1.5oz
This was and has been an old favorite of mine and my grandfather. It's about the only aromatic I smoke as the flavor is nutty and sweet and the room note is pleasant as well, and no bite like some aromatics tend to have.

Dad smoked it, it was my first back in the 60s and when I did Stunt work the Cowboys rolled it, that was good too. It's still one of the great American standby kick your A blends.
