- Room Note:
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.
It is Where the quality and price meet
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.
