Edward G Robinson Pipe Tobacco has returned to a form as classic as the roles the blends names’ sake played. Black Cavendish, Burley, White Cavendish and Latakia are combined with a fantastic topping lightly applied.

After reading that this pipe tobacco was a favorite of the late Civil War historian Shelby Foote and was the original blend of actor Edward G. Robinson I had high hopes that I was in for something very special. Unfortunately, my experience proved less than my expectation. The tobacco was fresh and moist in its tin but I found the both the aroma and taste disappointing. The taste proved somewhat harsh and the aroma not pleasing. Even with tamping, the tobacco continued to go out. I could not recommend this tobacco nor would I purchase it again. Disappointing experience.
This is a good aromatic that doesn't overdo it. Not a complicated blend but not one-sided either. An old-time smoke that I reach for more often than not. Will be purchasing more.
This is indeed a very nice light and sweet blend with just a hint of Latakia. It needs a little air-dry time to burn well. It smells great and is very satisfying. All in all, a very pleasant tobacco blend.
Has the blend changed? It doesn't seem as mild and aromatic as it did many years ago.
It was around back in the mid-1970s when I first took up pipe smoking. It wasn't my first or second choice back then ( Edgeworth and Amphora Brown were). Yet when push came to shove I bought along with Kentucky Mild. Burley mainly with wine and a little lat for taste. Smokes great and if not pushed will not bite. I still include it in my rotation. By the by great with an Italian red.
Very nice smoke. Arrived with no moisture problems. Very nice room aroma. Is my after-dinner smoke of choice. Highly recommended.
This is really outstanding tobacco and I can't believe I haven't tried it before. A slight smokey taste is in the background but not as heavy as a typical English blend. I recommend the 12 oz tub for consistency of product. It can easily be an all-day smoke but if you push it you might find a slight tingle... not even a bite. A Peterson Plip will eliminate even that. When I don't smoke Carter Hall, which is my year-old favorite, this is my new go-to tobacco. Highly recommend. Semper Fi Mike
