This is a real nice blend that has a smoothness to it that works real well in a large bowl Peterson Deluxe. Not strong on the nic front, but enjoyable and worth a box or two.
This blend is very flavorful, strong but not overpowering. Peaty is a good description; the dark fired Kentucky lends its deep earthiness to the mix, and the Virginias are sweet and bready. This would be a five star blend if you didn't need to apply for a loan to acquire it! I understand the whole small batch concept, but I just don't think that it justifies the hefty price tag.
Good now, will be great after a year or two .
The presentation was very nice. A mini cigar humidor with nice raised lettering. The tobacco coins themselves were beautiful, consistent in size and shape. In the description it said it had a Virginia wrapper with dark fired KY filler. Here is where I was disappointed. I noticed on site alone that the center of the coins were mostly light colored like the wrapper and not at all dark like I know my dark fired KY is. Only a few coins here and there contained ANY dark fired KY. I ended up mixing some dark fired KY in with each bowl to attain the desired flavor it was supposed to have. Disappointed.
Superb taste, put together well, burns smoothly. Highly recommended.
After shipping costs, this was over $35 out of my pocket for a mere 50g of tobacco, the most I've ever paid for smoke. The humidor was scuffed up, right out of the box. It was poorly constructed, and catches a little upon opening and closing. The Mac Baren coins within were bone dry, bite-y, and unsatisfactory for such an expensive product. I won't be buying another Stokkebye product. Shame, Mac Baren got tied into this. Extremely dissatisfied.
It’s VERY MUCH like my all-time favorite tobacco, Escudo, but without the perique that brightens Escudo. Wasn’t sure how good it would be, but I needn’t have worried. I love this tobacco and will buy as much 4TH GENERATION SMALL BATCH PEATY KENTUCKY ROPE CUT PIPE TOBACCO as I possibly can!
Full Virginia coins with a healthy dose of Kentucky support (1/2?). Dry smoking and natural tasting with some citrus. A spicy touch at times.
