War Horse Bar is a strong pressed plug made with dark and rich tobaccos. A recreation of a UK plug made by Gallaher, which was renowned for smooth strength. Recommended for the experienced piper who can tolerate a strong dose of nicotine. A throwback to simpler times and stronger tobaccos.

Very good flavor and strong. I'm a fan of strong tobacco and war horse does the trick. Three Nuns, Erinmore flake and war horse are now my top 3 Tobaccos. We shall see if there are others who will take the cake.
This tobacco blend pleasantly surprised me. Immediately upon opening, a strong and pleasant tonkin/coumarin smell, very similar to 1972. Although Plug is listed in the description, the tobacco separates and crumbles very easily. Strong enough (I'm not a fan of strong tobaccos), but with slow smoking and of course not on an empty stomach - very pleasant. Of course, it will not become an everyday tobacco, but from time to time I will return to it with pleasure. It lights with little fuss and burns quite well. The scenting is fairly pronounced at first - even now its still hard to put my finger on the flavor. I'm reminded of Lakeland florality. However, as the bowl progresses, the scenting recedes some and the tobacco comes forward until at mid-bowl the two meld and it reminds me of gingerbread. It is so smooth and pleasant that I am puffing along at a slow pace.
Full on aromatic. Very prominent tonquin flavor. High in vitamin N so take it easy on this one.
Love this tobacco! Puff slow and on a full stomach otherwise this tobacco will kick you in the teeth.
If I could only have one tobacco to carry with me on a cross country trek, this would be the one. Make no mistake, this stuff delivers a lot of nicotine in a small amount of time and the rich flavor is smooth enough that it’s easy to smoke. Good stuff.
I ordered this along with the WH Green and can't say enough about how enjoyable this tobacco is. I like my tobacco strong and this is indeed strong. Doesn't seem to have any scent to it other than straight up, hard-hitting tobacco which this WH Bar is. This blend has a very strong tobacco flavor with no bells and whistles which after all is the reason I'm smoking tobacco. After looking over the flavor intensities of the three War Horse blends I'm led to believe they were made the way they are for the purpose of working your way up from a 3 of 5 to 4 of 5 and then a 5 of 5. As with the Green, hold off on this one also or you will get the real meaning of nausea and headaches. As for me, I love this blend as much as I do the other 2 WH blends and all 3 of these will be ordered regularly. Great tobacco, great prices, and super fast shipping at crazy low shipping charges, what more can anyone ask for? Kudo's to TP for caring more for their customers than they do about money.
