I was pleasantly surprised by this blend. Since it’s a “pouch blend” I wasn’t expecting much. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This is a truly great, full flavored and delicious medley of DFK and VA. It is very close to HH ODF, but less tangy/BBQ flavors/aromas. This blend is sweeter, and smoother. I really enjoy it.
Amphora Kentucky for me was a surprise, in the fact it came in a pouch. Dark Kentucky in a broken flake. Not to overpowering as some Kentucky's can get. ODF is my other go to. Defiantly will add this to my buy again list.
I love the dark-fired blends, and this is a favorite. Always a satisfying, long smoke whose aroma is strong but never overwhelming (my wife loves to sit near me when I use it). It makes for such a slow, long smoke that I have to be sure I have the time before lighting it up. Wonderful stuff.
This is a very good Kentucky blend. similar to Old Dark Fired, but slightly sweeter.
As with all Amphoras produced by Mc Baren Company this very Kentucky Blend is a fine tobacco being quite a similar to Mc Barens HH Old dark Fired but has a bit more floral notes, less Bbq ,the strength is about the same as ODF which presumably is of a higher quality blend, hence the price.
