Extremely Mild Medium Mild to Medium Tolerable

Tried it again just for giggles. The only one giggling was the evil little creep that sold it to me.

While I applaud HOW for reintroducing Revelation as it is now my all time favorite...I must scratch my head in disbelief that any company would waste their time reintroducing this acrid, foul blend. I have no desire to try the new based on my experience with the old! You might as well shave Ivory soap into your bowl and light it...while it may leave your mouth with a fresh and clean feeling like the soap, that would be the only positive...if anyone offers you this to try, turn and run away screaming!

Mild Very Strong Overwhelming Strong

I hope this stuff was better back in the day because in its current incarnation as Bourbon Street it is indeed horrid. I like the soapy flavor in some of the lakeland tobaccos but this is seriously ridiculous. Take cheap tobacco and dump joy dish soap on it and add some Jade East cologne. Whalla!!! Now you have Bourbon Street.

I seen the other reveiws but I just don't get it. It's cool but has a familiar taste that reminds me of mixture 79 . Ill pass on this one. If your'e wondering about my rating on this tobacco see mixture 79.

As I continue to weave my way through the recently re-released golden oldies now being produced by House of Windsor, the latest stop on memory lane was Bourbon Street. (Formerly Bond Street)

The smell in the tin and the taste at the match are quite different. Yes, Bourbon Street does have a tobacco taste, albiet a rather cheap one to me. I was not enamored with the Burley/Bright combined with whatever the flavoring may be.

When you first pop the lid of the plastic tin (unless you bought a pouch)and take a whiff, you will swear you have just unwrapped a bar of Ivory Soap. The chunks are on the dry side and easy to pack. Bourbon Street smokes fairly cool too. It is unfortunate that the taste is similar to the pouch aroma -- soapy.

Soapy with a touch of perfume, the ingredients are mostly covered under by the toppings. The black cavendish was just about the only taste I got otherwise (just barely), except for a dull, hay Virginia note or two. You're better off going down some other street for a good smoke.

I remembered this as a "fall back brand" whenever I couldn't find Edgeworth. That isn't to imply any similarity in aroma or taste. I was impressed by the cube cut and initially thought that it might add a special insight or unusual taste the blend. Recently I found an unopened pack and promptly put it to the test in a small meer. The soapy flavor was still there, and it tended to burn hot but it did serve to remind me of my choice to smoke it when Edgeworth wasn't available. The contrast was remarkable. Alas I can think of no reason to smoke this brand unless,of course, you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your favorite blend. Poor Bond Street.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

A so-so smoke. A bit soapy as others have described, but very minimally present to my taste buds. Not much in the way of tobacco flavor. Only thing is a non-offensive room note - old time pipey smell, but not as old time pipey as some other blends. Too mild for me. All in all, not enough here for me to want to smoke it again. It goes without saying, there are way too many other blends out there that are simply better.

By the way, my pouch was labled Bond Street. Some reviewers seem to feel the newer incarnation is now Bourbon Street. I have never smoked the Bourbon Street variety, but after having read the reviews, it seems they are describing something very different from what I have experienced with Bond Street.

Now sold as Bourbon Street. A plain mostly Burley cube cut with Va. and light topping. Easy to pack and light, stayed lit well. Gentle easy to take flavor, could be smoked all day without bite.
