You have probably heard of this blend. It used to be one of the most popular in the world until it was discontinued. Luckily, Orlik has shown the grace to bring back one of our favorite tobaccos. Made from a knockout combination of Dark Fired Kentucky and Virginia tobacco, the rough cut flake has been pressed together in a truly unique way. While this blend is delicious now, it is a prime example of a tobacco that ages well. Order a tin for now and a few for later!

A perfectly round, sweet smoke... a keeper for sure. With some age, it's even better.
Great tasting tobacco. Your delivery is so much faster than other online tobacco/pipe shops. I order it on Friday and have the order by Monday. Thanks!!!!
I wanted to thank you for the speed of your order also. I ordered tobacco from another online site who was charging shipping. My order would get here in about a week and a half. With Tobaccopipes.com I get my order in a couple of days. Thanks again!!
Seems I found a keeper. This is excellent tobacco. Ordering a couple more tins today.
This is a very unique blend. People say it tastes like licorice, but I don’t taste that exactly, I do taste the dark fired Kentucky and Virginia separately. The presentation is immaculate. The way they separate the tobacco layers makes it smoke like you pack it, Kentucky, Virginia, and then Kentucky again. Super interesting.
This is the first time trying this baccy. What can I say been smoking a pipe a long time and this is among the best I have ever tried. Makes me feel like I been kissed by my sweetie while being kicked by a mule! This stuff is beyond good. Sweet, has a good kick and leaves a delicious after taste. Definitely not for the newbie or faint of heart but oh so delicious. Wow!
One of the most satisfying blends to date from Orlik to date... Unusual from them is the dark-fired Kentucky tobaccos (heat cured Burley's) that impart a richness and depth rarely seen in the standard Virginia blends. Tin note is great with deep figgy and chocolate with a nice nicotine punch which is not so unusual in heat-cured, compressed pipe tobaccos. I enjoy this as a morning treat to level-off my nicotine levels... I swear the dark striations look like Cavendish, but it truly is the "fired" magic at work. As is befitting this magical blend of Virginias and "Burleys"... Enjoy
If you like a stronger, richer tobacco with a hint of licorice, then, you'll probably like this. Not overpowering, very little bite and a nice room-note. Wife loves the aroma and nothing but great compliments from those around. Give it a try, I think you'll be pleased with the results.---Note: Let dry about 20 mins. or so before loading pipe. You'll get a better burn and easier to stay lit after the first charring burn. ENJOY, I know I am.
