I Don't Often Aromatic, But When I Do... This One Is A Favorite Treat
August 01, 2018
Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
[Tin/Bag - Delicious! Sweet, rich, black and some blue berries. So deep at times, almost like a syrup. Way deep inside there are some hints of mild leathery tobacco. Very dark, traditional ribbon cut, black Cavendish. Comes with some moisture. ... Read More

I had hoped that this would be pretty good, but it exceeded all expectations. An amazing blackberry taste, right from the start. Smooth, rich, sweet and creamy smoke, with great flavor. I wanted to smoke this all afternoon. I can't wait to light ... Read More

I am new to pipe smoking, but ordered a bunch to try, and this one is my favorite, so 5 stars!!! Great taste, nice room smell. I smoke it alone, or mix it with the lane ltd. Very Cherry, good stuff!
Too Much For Me
January 09, 2019
Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
I found this much harsher than the the Lane Limited. This one did have a bite. I toned it down by adding it to the Lane Limited with a 2 to 1 ratio. 2 oz of Lane for every 1oz of Newberry. This toned it down considerable and actually made a good ... Read More

Great Aromatic and Wonderful Flavor

Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
Wow people weren’t kidding when they said this was a great aromatic blend. I love this tobacco. It is a moist one so I’ll let it sit out for a few before I pack it. Makes a much easier smoke.
PERFECT

Nice flavorful tobacco

Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy 2 oz
I realized after my second smoke that I just don't care for the blackberry/brandy flavor, but that is on me not Newminster. The tobacco has a smooth smokey burn. I tended to puff on it too quickly, but never got tongue bite. If you think you would en... Read More

Smells great in the bag. Leaves a fine room note. Not goopy. I’m not an aromatic smoker, but this is a fine example.

Great flavor. Sweet but not too sweet. You can smell and taste the blackberry and a hint of brandy. As good as any tin or room note I’ve smelled even the wife doesn’t mind this one.

I compare this to a tinned tobacco I used to buy called "Appalachian Berry". Sweet from start to finish.

really nice aromas out of the bag, once lit, flat and boring, good (very mild) blackberry aftertaste though.

Blackberry Brandy has always been my winter time tipple, so I decided to try this. I liked it right off, but then, with friends around, I naturally shared some. Every single person with whom I shared it liked it as well. One day I was smoking an E... Read More

Very good smoke. Tastes to me like dried apricots and brandy. Has a slight sourness to the smoke which is nice with the fruit flavor.Definitly one of my favorites.

Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
I received a sample of this around a year ago and never thought much about it. I just put baggy and all in a mason jar and put it with the rest. A week or so ago I rediscover it and gave it a try. Very, very aromatic. Not so much that it's unpleasant... Read More

While this is not my favorite aromatic, it smells really nice, tastes good, and my wife likes the room note. Odd thing though, it smells more like blueberry than blackberry to me. Still, I like it.
Satisfying !

Enjoyable smoke

The overall complexity of this blend is excellent. At times I smoke this blend straight but I also use this too make my own special blend. Get a sample and give it a try. Not to moist and goopy, you pipe smokers know what I mean. No tongue bite.
Aromatically Smooth.

Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
I enjoyed Newminster No.23 Smells delicious. However not so fragrant when lit. Smooth smoke, and little to no Tongue bite. Would buy it again, and mix with others perhaps.
Wonderful Smoke

Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
Yes, very aromatic and wonderful smelling. After smoking 2 ounces of this tobacco, I have discovered that keeping it in an air-tight container is VERY important. Dried out-it is very plain and not nearly as delicious. However, fresh and moist...... Read More

There is no question that this potent mixture smells true to its name. As a matter of fact, it is so potent that its fragrance could be detected outside the shipping container! I agree with other reviewers that the flavor evaporates soon after lighti... Read More

This is one of the nicest-smelling tobaccos I've ever had. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to light it or put it on toast. Yes, it smelled THAT good. Once lit, however, it doesn't live up to that first impression. I'm sure it smells great to those a... Read More

Cobbler for your friends
December 22, 2012
Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
VERY aromatic! Flavor fades rather fast after the 1st few sips. Will ghost up your bowl big time. Like most aromatics, it's definitely a smoke your company will love more than you will.
True to taste....
August 19, 2012
Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
Tastes exactly like Blackberry brandy, which is outstanding. Tends to become less distinct in flavor for the last third of a bowl, which is a bit disappointing. Best to reserve a single pipe for this blend - the ghost haunts with a vengeance.
Strong and fruity.
July 23, 2012
Product: Newminster No.23 Blackberry Brandy Bulk
I could smell this while it was packaged in the box, it's that strong! A great smelling blend, good tasting too, definitely a good anytime smoke. Like most serious aromatics it can become a bit of a wet smoke.
Seriously aromatic
