It has a dark, fruity smell. I can detect the smell of the Perique but there's not enough of it to cause the characteristic tongue tingle that Perique often causes. The Dark Fired Kentucky and Latakia compliment one another without competing, or one ... Read Moregetting lost in the other. It must be the Virginia that adds some sweetness as well as the plum casing. The Burley rounds it out and gives some body to the smoke. I had the original House of Windsor years ago, and I did not like it. I like this enough to call it one of my favorites and to try to always have some on hand. Read Less
Want to smoke something slightly fruity, fragrant and a little complex for a reasonable cost? Then this is it. My favorite every day blend. Smoke this and you will find out why Albert Einstein. Seems to love an earlier version on this.
this blend is exactly what i have been looking for.upfront a slight casing overload but turning into plum nut taste followed by a slight spice grassiness.latakia ghosts in and out .will be purchasing again and again.
Revelation mixture was reputed to be Dr. Albert Einstein's "go to" favorite. From the best I can recall from "Back In The Day" times this is a mighty close approximation. For a blend with Latakia composition this is a mellow smoke... Read More! "Doc Pete" Read Less
I bought this and Epiphany at the same time. You can read my review of Epiphany at Smoking Pipes too. I found this to be an awesome blend. I think the combination of tobaccos and the right amounts were masterfully blended because this creation is a p... Read Moreleasure to imbibe. It is something one could easily smoke all day, everyday. The aroma is enticing, and the savor flavor compels you back to another bowl. I can see why Einstein smoked this. I just don't know how he did everything else too! Read Less
This isnt a bad blend its actually good. Its a tad sweeter than HOW Revelation and sweeter than C&D Epiphany. Burns slow and cool. Not a nic bomb kind of leaves you hanging that way but good to have around.
I've tried 3 different Revelation copies (Epiphany, MATCH, Sutliff) and I find it interesting that none of them taste anything like the others. Heck, this blend actually has different component tobaccos from the others. That said, I think I like th... Read Moreis blend the best of the 3, and always keep some on hand. Read Less
This, I am told, is a match to Einstein’s favorite blend, and since the great man discovered Relativity, it’s somehow appropriate that this blend be his favorite. Now, we know from Special Relativity that time slows down the closer one gets to the sp... Read Moreeed of light. In like manner, as I smoked this, time slowed to a crawl as I contemplated how I had managed to find a tobacco that smells like a nun emptied a can of her toilet spray in a truck stop rest room. Still, I toughed it out for until it needed a relight after about a half-hour, only to realize it had only been about 15 seconds and I still needed to tamp it. The phrase “throw up in your mouth “takes on new meaning, especially since the flavor tastes like Old Spice and a rotting peach had a two-headed tobacco love-child named Revelation. Pretty much unsmokable. But I will give one-half star for the fruit cake aftertaste. That said, those who like aromatics that remind them of their wives’ scented bath salts, then this is for you.

Whoever blended this tobacco has surely never smoked Revelation, perhaps the greatest American tobacco blend of all time.
This sweet and gooey "match" has neither the flavor nor fragrance of the original.
