I ordered a pack of this last year, and have just now got around to smoking it. I can understand why this has been around so long. ITS REALLY GOOD! I remember seeing Amphora being sold at Walgreens in the large metal tin. The label used to read, “ D... Read More

I last tried this tobacco 50 years ago taking hits off my father's pipe. I tried this tobacco fresh from the pouch with no drying out. The pouch smell was fragrant with the smell of fresh hay, figs, and apple. I did not detect the smell of chocolate... Read More

Definitely a bit more burley forward than the original. But the Virginia is in the background with a bit of the hay taste you would expect. Here’s what to do if you smoke it fresh...put the amount you want to smoke in a small dish or tray and air dry... Read More

This is a nice tasting pipe tobacco. I don't really taste the topping/casing. It's bland in that sense. But what I do taste is a very nice tobacco! A nicely balanced blend that smokes well, is easy to enjoy, simple, and honest. It's not a fancy ble... Read More
It's pipe tobacco

Product: Amphora Original Blend 1.75oz
Looks great, smells great in the pouch, but tastes like smoke. I've had it in cobs, briar, and clay pipes. I've let it dry, smoked right out of the bag, and let it age for a few months: its underwhelming. It will fill a pipe though! Good job amp... Read More

Been smoking for some 50 years now, and welcome this tobacco's re-arrival. It is robustly softer than a latakia, has a good after taste, and there is no bite. Will add this to my orders (smoke Lane ltd, Plumcake, and a cavendish strain)

When they stopped importing Amphora it became for me a long winter of discontent. I smoked Amphora regular almost exclusively, and I began a search lasting years trying to find its equal, to no avail. I even used to go to Canada to buy a supply onc... Read More
A delightful smoke.

Product: Amphora Original Blend 1.75oz
The virginias are hay and a touch of honey, yet they're overshadowed by the nutty sweet burleys that lend a slight note of cocoa. The kentucky is wood and leather with a slight bit of spice, and becomes more noticeable as the bowl burns past mid-poin... Read More

I was excited to try this after reading the review/story in the smoking pipes newsletter but I have to say I'm underwhelmed by the product. Tin/pouch note is pleasant, I get a lot of notes of apricot, chocolate, fig. However when you light it I get... Read More

From the pouch I smelled a little cocoa, vanilla and a nice natural tobacco aroma. once my pipe was packed and lit, I was pleaseantly surprised that the pouch aroma actually translated to the smoke. I can taste both the cocoa and vanilla, but not so ... Read More
Quality Tobacco

Product: Amphora Original Blend 1.75oz
This pouch of Amphora Original was made with quality tobaccos. Not bad. Didn't note much of anything but burley. Not really any better or worse than a number of other OTC tobaccos. Not as good as Prince Albert.

Dear God. What did they do between last years production and the just received 2017 batch? Last year's was fabulous. this batch is full of moisturizers. Like the difference between chalk and cheese.
Good tobacco,bad price

I really like this tobacco and could smoke it day in and out but too much money for too little tobacco. This needs to be sold in bulk or 1 lb bags. 7.00+ for less than 2 ounces is not worth it.

Original is a tasty blend of tobaccos. The coco note is well done and more dark, baking chocolate than milk chocolate bar.

I've just got 5 packs of these. Guys, for the first time in my life Amphora has nothing to do with Amphora. This is my favorite one for many years, and unfortunately I am forced to tell that my Original Blend does not have the smell of Amphora AT ALL... Read More

I'm smoking my first bowl of Amphora Original as I write this post. Like many, I've waited for this to come back to the USA for years. Last I smoked it was in the late 80s I believe. Well, it is simply superb. I ordered two packs each and they arrive... Read More

Natural flavors throughout. The Kentucky adds a bit of spice. The topping is very light almost unnoticeable. A very good natural tobacco experience. The pouch is even nice, it’s luxurious... seriously it should be a must try.

First impressions: The flavoring is really affective. The Cocoa/Chocolate is very subtle but the way it highlights and sets off the kitchen sink of varietals is absolutely delicious. Very smooth. With so much going on here the blend is surprisingly c... Read More

This is a decent and cheap pouch tobacco. Honestly one of the better otc blends out there. Plus it’s a good price.

Listen to your Uncle Jeff. This is good stuff. Amphora was one of the best pipe tobaccos you could get at any grocery or drug store. Try the original blend. Take a huge drag and slowly whiff it out the nose.WOW!
