I am not someone who is able to pick out specific tobaccos in a blend; however, I find this blend to be quite enjoyable. I smoke a pipe about two or three times a week, but I can see how someone would find this blend to be easy every day, all day smoke. This is the blend that I consider my everyday smoke. If you like Burley I believe you will like this tobacco.
I am still smoking this tobacco, I am not sure if I like it or not, the nic hit is the for sure the perique is there but there is a strong ash flavor to it. yet I do keep coming back to it. I can't figure out if I love it or hate it. I am smoking a bowl of it right now as I type this review. This tobacco is hard to figure out, I will keep smoking it until I do. Give it a try you may love it looking around the internet a lot of people seem to.
The name, the blend description, the reviews left by others, I was expecting something outstanding... I was a bit disappointed with the actual experience of smoking this. Was it bad, definitely not! It was a nice blend that I will happily finish the tin, but probably not order again or wait a couple of years and give it another shot as my palate changes with experience. I didn't get the pepper notes, but nice flavor and easy to light/smoke with a bit of tongue bite at times (I am still learning to slow down).
The Emperor has no clothes. At least for me. Too strong. Taste no burley, only Virginia and Perique. Not going to throw it out but not going to order again either.
mixed with other stuff even better
Not bad, going to get some more soon.
Burley tobaccos are what I always lean towards when looking for an all-day smoke. I like the strength of this for all-day enjoyment. Nice how a nice hint of perique warms it up near the end of the bowl. It's one of those smokes that leave you wanting more at the end of your pipe, really enjoyed all the way through.
This was good but very strong. I only go for more mild aromatics, although a friend wanted to try something more like a cigarette. Still too strong for a pipe.
A super smoke with just the right amount of Perique !
