Tried the standard Plum Pudding, and really enjoyed it, so I decided to get the Special Reserve and give it some aging time. Gonna be tough to wait, but I have to be strong. I'm sure it's going to be superb.
Well worth the money! There's a complex array of flavor notes which can be confusing at first.
As I grew more familiar with plum pudding I became increasing fond of its very complex yet comfortable flavor/aroma.
One of the best tobaccos I've smoked. A deep and rich English with excellent Latakia. On par or better than Penzance.
One of the best Latakia forward tobaccos out there. At least as good as Penzance if not better.
Expected it to be more aromatic.
This is a great evening smoke with just the right amount of Latakia to put your mind on seeing minarets in the distance. The plug breaks apart easily for filling your bowl and usually stays lit for the entire bowl. Definitely a keeper.
This was recommended to me by a friend, and I have to say it is better than he described. Great complex tastes and smells. Well worth the couple extra bucks.
It is a very nice smoke, tasty and smooth. It is not obvious to me that the 'Special Reserve' represents a premium over the regular PP. I am not likely to buy it again at full price.
Plum Pudding is one of my favorites, but I've not been blown away by the Special Reserve.
This is a phenomenal blend, quite possibly the best I've ever smoked. It's neck and neck between this and my beloved White Knight for my favorite tobacco I've had.
