Really nice tobacco, a little pricey! Smooth smoke with no bite.
As it says on the label, the dark fired Kentucky makes it smoky and robust, and the aged Virginia makes it smooth and sweet. Easy to see why it’s been around so long. I love the smoky tin note and way it makes my hands smell when rubbing.
A fine tobacco that has always been one of my favorites as it smokes wonderfully and tastes Fantastic.
If you’re just starting on the pipe, you should try this. Why? Because it will seem quite strong and off-putting to you. Then I want you to seal the rest of this tobacco up in a Ball jar. Put the date on it and come back to it in a few years to see how your taste has changed. Veteran pipe smokers crave ol St. Bruno. St. Bruno is aged Virginia and dark fired with a slight tonquin topping. This is superior tobacco!
This is one of my favorite tobacco's. Great flavor and smokes perfectly. Just the right amount of nic. Not too strong, not too mild. If it wasn't so expensive, this could be my all day, everyday smoke.
I love flake tobacco, really enjoy rubbing it out to my liking. Once again I add a little Turkish Ribbon which mellows it out and it then becomes an all-day blend.
I've used this tobacco for many years and it has always been a favorite.
Great smoke, very original. Remember it from the 70s, all most as good as the condor.
