This is a great full English blend. It's a ribbon cut pressed into a block. Very easy to pull some off and bust it up right into the pipe. It feels moist out of the tin but it burns like a champ, you'll get plumes of thick white smoke. It has a pretty stiff nic hit no bite and great flavor. A late evening smoke or after work. Don't operate machinery after consuming.
This is a favorite. Well balanced and flavorful and a worthwhile nicotine content. Perfect. Plus TobaccoPipes' great prices, great personal service and fast cheap shipping.
This is my favorite pipe tobacco. I should have tried this first because I would have saved many a dollar spent on other English blends. These adjectives come to mind as I try to describe it:
Heavy Latakia ( which I love ), Smoky, Woodsy, Sweet, and Creamy. This krumble cake is easily broken apart, and smokes very cool - no bite what so ever. It comes with a perfect moisture content and burns easily to the bottom of the bowl. I love the smoky aroma left in the room, but I’m sure others would not appreciate the campfire essence. This is my mainstay with Pirate Kake being a very close second. I keep plenty of both available. I don’t know what else I can say about an exceptional tobacco.
This Russian tobacco has a great savory, smoked pulled pork barbeque flavor. I’d say this Is an experienced pipe smoked tobacco.
