Excellent tobacco. Tin note is great, packs and lights well. I like that the rum/molasses topping is lightly applied and you only get wisps of it in the taste. You can also taste sweet, nutty Burley throughout, with occasional hints of Virginia tang and sweetness and spicy dark fired. It would be 5 stars from me if the nic strength was just a bit higher.
Arghhh this be some good ol pipe tobacco
Highly recommend it's one of my favorites, flavor isn't overpowering and isn't like those fake added flavors that make you sick ,pretty strong and smooth.
The more I try C&D blends the more I find good tobacco. The basic leaf is very good with a soft feel to the cake. The topping seems to be a type of berry liquor added to the rum. It is a light topping and not chemical tasting, just a soft berry over the rest. I do find that very slow puffing is best to keep all the flavors balanced. I like rum/navy blends in a bowl from time to time and redburn was an okay blend for me.
Smooth, rich, creamy, full of wonderful flavors. Burns well with no tongue bite. Totally taken over by this blend. It makes me want to smoke bowl after bowl. Well done C&D!
Man, this is a great good quality codger burley blend! It’s basic but by no means a cheap type blend. I mean you won’t find it in ‘value tobacco’ sections. A nice medium nic hit and smooth smoking as long as I smoke it slowly. Direct from the tin it smokes just fine. I’m loving the aftertaste this I get Rum, period. The tin blurb pretty much tells you what you NEED to know as a review. I’m looking into a pound of this it’s so nice
