- Room Note:
Slightly underwhelming. The tin note and room note are pleasing but the flavors are a bit too elusive for me. I’ll let it age a bit and see how it smokes and tastes then. Great tin design though.
I am glad I bought 3 tins.
This blend was like a ghost. I could barely tell it was there. Little glimpses of what could be considered flavor, but fleeting. Mild flavor. I could see smoke, but no sort of mouth feel at all. Maybe it's just me being used to stronger blends. I couldn't tell you what was really going on.
If Dana Andrews smoked it you know it's gonna be good
Cool smoke ... Lights easy , burns well throughout... Very pleasant surprise
I was very satisfied with this pipe tobacco & I highly recommend it. It has a very pleasant room note & flavor.
Im not a reviewer kind of guy but this is a good one for me so far. This is more of a first impression as I've only had this about a week long and had a couple bowls of it. I was real pleased with the first bowl and knew that a single tin wasn't going to be enough for me. In my case, I found it to be pleasantly sweet, with brights and some deeper tones also and multi faceted. I had no issues with tongue bite and it didn't get boring for me. Made by K&K.from what I've had from them, I enjoy most of what they put out.
Tin note is natural Virginia, mild sweet breading with a hint of Piquant Perique. Nice broken, ready rubbed flake with a coin here and there. If you enjoy classic VaPer blends there's a lot to like in this one. K&K rarely disappoints, and they nailed this one.
It is hard to review blends that are special editions as they are usually sold out and what good is a review of a blend one can not obtain? Nonetheless I will offer a few thoughts. The various virginia chunks act to slow down the burn and keep bite away. the perique is a minor player with the virginias as the main top note. Smooth and flavorful, this is a great blend that will appeal to all Enthusiasts and new comers alike.
