Thought I would try this as a dedicated Va-Per smoker. Bag note was of hickory camp fire, Room note the same. Mild and very smokable, however the taste and nose of this was truly like a very well done, did I mention VERY WELL DONE charbroiled sirlo... Read Morein steak with a ketchup topping. Not my "bowl of Baccy" you can only discover what you like by trying and this was a valiant effort to expand my tobacco horizons but at least I know what I don't like in a tobacco now. ------Excuse me while I load up a bowl of Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake with Virginia and Perique to kill the taste of this stuff....

Velvet smoke, charred sugar, bitter chocolate and caramel, for me the sweetness over-rides the strength. Compared to a bowl of straight Perique this is medium in strength and full of flavor. More char and smokiness than a stoved Virginia, yet still ... Read Morepleasant sweet complex flavors. Fantastic straight and should make a great mixing component. I was delighted with the tremendous amount of smoke this produced. A couple reviewers stated they tasted licorice, happily I did not. Read Less
Delicious! I prefer strong tobacco and I appreciate great flavor. This tobacco is the best of both worlds. Robust tobacco taste and great subtle Liquorice flavor make this tobacco a pleasure to smoke. Smokes cool and smooth, never bites. Not a head... Read Morebanger as far as nicotine kick but stronger than most tobaccos. The best nicotine kick I've found in a flavored tobacco. Always satisfying. One of my all time favorites. Read Less
This was the first tobacco I've ever tried, and was shocked on how the tin note was! It was rich, dark, and sweet, like a dark roast coffee with a little sugar! When I tasted it after lighting it was like a light bulb moment. So this is how good t... Read Moreobacco pipe smoking is. Since then I've tried other blends, and was disappointed that it never measured up to the very first tobacco I've tried. Great story about it was it was given to me by a friend in a little zip lock, about a few grams. I didn't even have a label on. Since then I asked my friend what it was, and was glad to find it here in Smokingpipes, thank you Smokingpipes for making it easier to have the very best tobaccos available! If you have doubts on trying this blend, do yourself a favor and just do it! It's like the scene in Lord of the Rings when the 2 hobbits found two full jars or very rare pipe weed. This is how i feel about this tobacco! Read Less
While I do not have much experience with English twists, I found this blend to be "OK." Beefy, charred, slightly sweet notes. The flavor intensity, for me, was mild-medium, but the nicotine intensity was medium-full. As with anything fro... Read Morem Lakeland, give it some drying time. While my comments are not illustrious, definitely give it a shot. Read Less
I really enjoy this one. It makes my mouth water when I open the bag. It does need some drying time. I really like to mix this 50 / 50 with the brown rope. Others say it is really strong to them. If you have not tried it before I would say eat a... Read More good meal before smoking. Read Less
This stuff is strong and strangely appealing but it is not an everyday flavor I want but every one in a while on a Saturday Night when I am going to have more than one strong drink this is the strong tobacco I want to go with it. I am always keeping ... Read Moresome on hand for those moments. Read Less
Wow, what a tobacco ! Strong and rich, but oh so smooooth. The 'slices' are actually very long thin ribbons, that at first light remind me of Semois with a dollop of blakstrap molasses added to keep it company. Sip it slowly, and enjoy the flavor.......

A glass of sweet sherry is a good accompaniment with this one, too. Read Less

It looks black and harsh. It's not. Quite the contrary, it's rich and has great depth.
