This is a really interesting tobacco. It's a very unique flavor. It reminds me of cedar incense, and if you give it really light sips, there's a tanginess that tastes like lime to me. Sounds like an odd combination, but it's good. I think it's appropriately named--it smells like something that would be smoked on the bayou, or in a voodoo museum in New Orleans. If you want something different, try it. It also raised my view of Sutliff tobaccos. I have a few pounds of Sutliff aromatics, and I like them, but this one is like a high quality flake. I like it, I'm glad I have it.
I have a little bit of everything in my rotation. I usually have about 10-15 blends that I choose from and this hit a flavor that my rotation was missing. No issues with it, very pleasant, smooth, burned nice. It will be one I continue to enjoy.
The best of the best, as far as my taste buds go.
This is a remarkable tobacco. I bought five pounds of this tobacco, and I have smoked 3.5 lbs. of it. It is the only pipe tobacco that I can enjoy all day and night. Yes, I smoke a bowl of cigar leaf or Dark Burley once in a while. This tobacco smokes cool, full of flavor, and no tongue bite. The ash is a light gray in color. As for the aroma, so far, no one has complained. This is not an aromatic tobacco, but it is not an offensive, or a heavy tobacco. I'm so pleased with it that I will buy another five pounds in the near future.
I have to say, I enjoy this one quite a bit while I'm in the process of smoking it. The smoke is good, and the taste reminds me of bbq and sweet tea. Where it loses me is after I set my pipe down. It leaves an unpleasant sour ashy taste in my mouth that lasts several hours, even after brushing my teeth. I haven't had this issue with other tobaccos, so it's not just your normal pipe breath. For me, it makes me not reach for it when I have any other options to hand. I won't be getting this one again.
I LOVE this stuff. Spicy, smoky, mocha, pastry, coffee. I stock pile this blend. Definitely a bit unusual but that is the attraction. The first bulk blend I tried and immediately ordered more to cellar.
Been branching out of aros in English. I have some heavy hitters. If you want a heavy hitter it's not. BUT this is a great tobacco. Sweet grass and incense is a great description. It's well rounded, complex without overbearing. Room note is great for me, wife hasn't complained but I have a nice breeze and she isn't too close. I can't imagine anyone not at least finding some worth out of it, especially for the price, I will buy again. Tobacco.pipes.com is all I buy from and they are phenomenal in every aspect.
Voodoo Queen, horrible name but my go to morning blend. My daily rotation includes +- 8 tobaccos. I like to start with this subtle smoky blend and progress to more flavorful and robust smoke through out the day.
It's a great smoke! it burns cool, and you can taste every ingredient in there. The second half of the bowl gets stronger, and I liked the aftertaste. Will buy again definitely.
