Our take on an old Middleton favorite, "Our" Sugar Barrel blend is made primarily of coarse and cubed cut Burley with a bit of Virginia. The sugar flavoring creates a hint of sweetness, which enhances this mild smoking pipe tobacco.

A thick cut plug, thicker than the original, which was mostly a cube cut with little flakes. Both the nutty, molasses sweet burley and lesser component grassy, light citrusy Virginia are lighter in color. The proportions and aforementioned flavors seem to be about the same, but there’s a little less cinnamon spice and lesser depth of brown sugar here. This has a mild, rough sharp edge the original lacks, so I suspect more white burley is present in this version. The nic-hit is mild. Burns a little slow with a mostly cool and fairly consistent taste. Leaves a little dampness in the bowl. I gave the original two stars, and this gets the same as it’s not the closest match I’ve seen made.
