This is my go-to all-day tobacco. Just enough Latakia mixed in perfect proportions with Cavendish, Turkish, and Virginia to create tobacco that delivers outstanding English flavor. The longer it burns the better the taste. Ten Russians have been my only brand for a while now and I’m very pleased with it.
Hands down my favorite tobacco. Rich, but little bite, stays lit well, doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth.
Ten Russians is a superb blend for those who like a strong latakia/English tobacco. It is rich, tasty and very satisfying. I can never tell the Nic strength of a blend because Nicotine does not affect me at all, but I would guess this is quite strong.
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.
