 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.

What is in it?
The plug is pressed from smaller pieces of leaf and is very dark looking.  A milder topping adds sweetness and a licorice/vanilla flavor.  This blend uses the following tobaccos.
Dark Fired: Dark Fired Kentucky is at the front in this blend.
Burley: Burley is present, but is hard to notice as a seperate component .  It blends nicely with the dark fired.
Virginia:  Virginia is a component as well.  The Virginia is dark and bittersweet 
What does it smoke like?
War Horse is a strong and full smoke.  Listing the individual components seems a waste of time, as the plug processing has melded every tobacco together into one unified taste.  The topping provides a sweetness and a light coffee or almond flavor.  I can't find where the topping stops and the tobacco starts in the profile.  The blend changes little as it is smoked, but the topping decreases in the bottom half of a pipe.  Suprisingly, for a stronger blend, War Horse is smooth and easy to smoke.  This does not burn the throat or nose like many heavy tobaccos seem to.  The strength of this blend does tend to sneak up one the smoker.  A smaller pipe and a full meal are strongly recommended.  This has enough nicotine to make driving while smoking a bad idea. 
How to prepare it?
One large block of tobacco is waiting in the tin.  Since this plug is comprised of small pieces of tobacco I was able to break off a corner without using a knife.  Rub this out fully and you will see the tobacco is not as moist as it seems in the plug.  My bar was ready to load without drying.  A light pack is best, and you can expect some relights.  Room note is strong to others, but I love it.

    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.
