War Horse: Bar 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-739-0002

War Horse was a popular brand of pipe tobacco in Ireland and soon gained a following in the United Kingdom and the United States before falling out of production. Thanks to the blending prowess of Russ Ouellette, though, War Horse pipe tobacco returns, now manufactured by Sutliff. A mixture of Burley, Dark-Fired Kentucky, and Virginia leaf, War Horse Bar is a plug that presents a full body and robust flavor profile fit for the experienced pipe smoker, with subtle toppings of anise and tonquin complementing the natural tobacco flavor.

What????
July 09, 2019
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
This is like nothing else on earth! I don’t care for aromatics and usually smoke VaPer’s but, damn is this good! Flavor is a vanilla, almond, cherry with some cocoa going on. It’s a total assault on your taste buds! Have gone through around 8 tins so... Read More
Plug Shape, Crumble Cake Prep
September 25, 2017
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
Upon opening the tin, you will first note that it looks like a plug but unlike most plugs, the prep for smoking is much, much easier as this 'plug' crumbles very easily. In fact, it is very easy to just pinch off a chunk and with very minimal rubbing... Read More
Better than a plug
February 25, 2018
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
This is one heck of a tobacco! A powerhouse on the flavor and aroma side of things, but I don't find it to be as nicotine heavy as others have. A european style aromatic with notes of tonquin, valerian root, and what I think is bergamot. Unique to be... Read More

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
Not nearly as strong as advertised. I was let down as I was expecting a nice nic hit and a punch of full flavor. The tin note is of Cherry and Anise, actually kind of pleasant smelling. Nothing really stands out in the smoking and I lost interest qui... Read More

My first experience with this was hard to put into words. As I am fairly new to plugs ect.,this was a new experience for me. I dont smell or taste licorice as others have. I really don't have a word for it. It was very pleasant. Made me think of my G... Read More
Totally Surprising
February 23, 2020
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
With a name like War Horse I was expecting something bitter, leathery and strong enough to knock you out of the saddle. That's the complete opposite of what you get here. Tin note is strongly floral and sweet. The plug resembles a firm crumble kake, ... Read More

Normally I don't smoke aromatics but I wanted to try it. I did read some reviews on it a while back and many were positive . Russ Ouellette did a great job with this tobacco and I had no doubt about it being good. I love that its in pressed form and ... Read More

It may wish it were a plug, but this is crumble cake country. A myriad of flavors your tastebuds will go mad trying to decipher laid over top of warm nutty burley and smoky kentucky, with a notable nic hit that shows up about the time the party's ha... Read More
Like a War Horse
February 21, 2017
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
This was surprisingly sweet and strong, a decent nic hit! I'm sure there's a casing on it that adds to the sweetness but whatever it is, it works. The moisture from the tin was pretty much perfect and it light and burn very well. The only issue I had... Read More

At request this was suggested as a substitute for a tobacco that is impossible to find right now. It is absolutely a good candidate for that. I like it And will be ordering more.
Saddle up.

This one isn't horsing around, so grab hold of the reins tight. This one will have you chomping at the bit. But don't look a gift horse in the mouth. It might kick, or even throw you. 😉 But seriously, I recommend rubbing out a few grams and let... Read More

This is as good as it gets, its not as strong as i thought but lets you know its there. I just got the tin a few days ago and i am already half way through.
Just a great change of pace option

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
War Horse Bar is in the same neighborhood as, say, a Dark Flake Aromatic, but with this one there’s even more added flavoring. So it smokes like a treat, as opposed to something you’d want all day, every day. That said, I still want a bowl or two of ... Read More

Lots of good flavor, hints of black licorice and molasses, but holy crap this stuff is strong, not for the new smoker

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
This is an amazing smoke. Russ did an amazing job with it and the price point is great!! The only wish I had with it is that I could get it in bulk! It has a very distinct flavor and room note. Nicotine level is on point. Buy a tin you won’t be disap... Read More

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
As I posted in a pipe group, while I know that my grandfather never smoked this, the aroma of the tobacco is so close to whatever he smoked, that it brought me back to when I was a kid poking around his stuff and enjoying the aroma of his pipe tobacc... Read More

I am about 3 years now into this hobby. Had smoked cigars previously and with, more maduro. Started with classics like 7 seas. I saw War Horse, and that majestic horse on the front, and i had to try. It was a complex, robust bright punch that was v... Read More

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
I was not expecting the tin note of cherry (and possibly, amaretto?) to be as strong as it was. I was afraid I'd accidentally bought an aromatic. Nevertheless, I proceeded, because Russ Ouellette has earned my trust forever with BlackHouse. The good ... Read More
New additiion to the rotation
January 30, 2021
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
The tin note is clove and a bit of vanilla, but I certainly would not classify this as an aromatic. Moderately strong in flavor, pleasing level of nicotine, and very consistent pipe to pipe and from top to bottom of bowl. This is not the most complex... Read More

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
I have now moved from cigars (mostly) to pipes. orders several brands that were rated 4-5 stars for taste and strength. Coming from Padron cigars I enjoy a strong flavor and nic kick. This tobacco does it for me. It IS milder than my usual cigars, b... Read More
Not that amazing

Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
After reading the great reviews I guess my expectations were too high for this one. It's definitely unique, but I found my first bowl to be very lackluster. The tin note is very strong fruity, spicy, Amaretto and room note is nice as well. The tobacc... Read More

Smells and tastes like something you’d freshen your house with around Christmas time. Definitely not recommended to new pipe smokers as the flavor is quite complex compared to your average OTC blend. Sometimes I’m not sure whether to love or hate it ... Read More
Not A Plug
June 14, 2017
Product: War Horse Bar 1.75oz
I picked up a tin of this hoping for a decent plug. While it is a fairly enjoyable smoke - **it isnt actually a plug**, but a tighly pressed krumble kake. You cannot slice off thin flakes, they just fall apart and turn to dust. Overall not a bad tob... Read More
