Salty Dog is more than slang shouted by Pirates. Dan Tobacco has created a Navy style tobacco plug for the American Market. Plug tobaccos are a historic form by which many of our forbearers were accustomed to. Perfect for storage and aging, yet easy to slice for enjoyment whenever desired. Virginia and Perique tobaccos cased with rum for a classic Navy blend.

The product is good...Never had plug tobacco, I like the taste and the old style of prep. I would like to get more of this type of tobacco and try different flavors. This plug isn't as flavorful as I expected though so 4 stars...a customer for life....small company large care...
You need a sharp knife and a steady hand. Just a few flakes will rub out an fill a bowl. Rum is in the background of this highly pleasant smoke.
I thought this was the finest tasting & most satisfying plug of tobacco I ever stoked into a pipe bowl. I purchased 1/2 dozen pouches & it has mated with the top five in my rotation. Needless to say, I truly enjoyed it. Try some if you get the opportunity & you won't be disappointed. If you like Escudo or other similar blends, you'll be amazed with Salty Dogs. Great stuff!
