Dobie's 4 Square Cut Plug begins with nothing but sweet, bright Virginias that are rolled, and then pressed square. This is a nicely sweet straight Virginia flake with a mellow room note that can be prepared in a variety of ways to suit your tastes. If you love Virginias without the influence of perique or any other tobaccos, this will quickly become a favorite.

Here, the great Dobie's name is attached to a nutty coconut aromatic. When I think of cut plug, I do admit that my mind and palate are at odds while smoking this blend. I do think that it is a fine smoke for what it is and aromatic fans, in particular, will get the best of both worlds here.

Very Mild Medium to Strong Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

Do you like Peter Stockkebye's Luxury Twist . I have enjoyed it for years. If you buy this tobacco , in my opinion , that is exactly what it is . Stockkebye's Twist. Now you can buy a 1.5 pound box of twist for around $60 . That is 24 oz . The Four square comes in 1.75 oz cans at around $10 . To get the same 24 oz. you would need around $14 cans which comes to around $140 . That looks like you would be paying around $80 extra to smoke the Four Square . If this isn't the exact same tobacco it is surly close enough . I cannot tell the difference . Your call .

The Virginia cavendish offers a light citrus, a bit of grass/hay, and a small amount of earth. The topping is coconut, and a little fruit and caramel. The coconut also provides a mild perfume note. The nic-hit is a step or two past mild. The flakes easily break apart and burns at a moderate pace, fairly cool with a light creamy, consistent flavor. Won’t bite or get harsh. Requires few relights, and leaves little dampness in the bowl. The after taste pleasantly lingers. Despite it being a mild blend, it’s not an all day smoke due to the perfume quality of the coconut topping.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

This plug has been sliced to resemble a flake and that enables much easier packing than a true plug. Any topping was not overpowering but the smoke was definitely sweet. With an ideal moisture content from the tin, it burned evenly without the need for relights and little condensation.

Standard Tobacco Co. - Dobie's Four Square - Cut Plug.

Pleasant surprise, I had no idea of how the presentation of the blend would be, but removing the lid exposed two stacks of curly flakes; think W.O. Larsen's No. 32. The aroma from the tin carries a slight aromatic trace, but nothing over the top. Moisture's good.

The tobacco gives a fairly eminent flavour, nice and sweet, without much sharpness. The topping may deter a few folks, but I quite like it. Coconut. It's easy to identify and taste, without being too redoubtable and strong: medium is the highest it could be categorised as, at a push. The strength of flavour doesn't really adjust much, it might be deemed as being more aromatic at the very start of a bowl, but after that it's a steady addition.

Bad points are burn and bite: hot/fast burn, with too much bite.

Room-note: pleasant to tolerable. Nicotine: mild to medium.

Although I like the flavour, I don't like a few of the other aspects. Somewhat recommended:

Two stars.

Sweet hay with an overly sweet topping that my buds find mildly offensive. Not terribly offensive, but I can feel my gag reflex wanting go active. Just gonna have to say that this one is not for me. If you like it, you can have it all.

Mild to medium in body, taste, and flavoring. Burns very well.
