Extremely Mild Medium Extremely Mild (Flat) Overwhelming

This is the second tobacco I have reviewed in a 24 hour span and I do not wish to sound overtly negative, but but just seems to have happened this way.

I don't wish to recount anything as to how I happened to purchase this tobacco, I prefer to forget. I plan to forget everything about this abomination. This is the worst tobacco I have ever smoked. I know full well that it is a drug store blend and that I, a former tobacconist, should know better. There are drug store blends that are among my favorites. Royal Comfort, though, is a boil on the honest body of redily available domestic tobacco and on tobacco in general. Dear me, but I do hate it.

Now, let us never speak of it again.

Royal Comfort is a typical cased black Cavendish. It is not as moist as some, and doesn't goop up the pipe too much. It has a grassy undertone to the flavor that I did not care for. It is very mild with a mostly semi-sweet chocolate taste to me.It has very little tobacco taste, and no oomph either. I would think it a less costly alternative for those who like Captain Black.

Another Middleton I enjoy very much.

Recently, I sat smoking some in the car waiting for my wife to come out of the salon. "I could smell you as I came towards the car," she said. I asked if that was a good thing. "You bet! I like it very much!"

If mamma is happy, everybody is happy!

A very pleasant all day smoke IMO. Nice room notes, mild smoking and no biting or burning. Stays lit to the end. A mild cousin of L 1Q or CB in some ways. This is another blend I wish I could pick up in 12 or 14 oz tins!

The only positive thing I can say about this stuff is that it is infinitely better than Captain Black and somewhat better than Prince Albert. There are certainly better OTC blends available.

My expectations were pretty low for this one, i find the only middleton blend i enjoy is PA and if it wasnt for that id never give them a second glance. I had never heard of royal comfort until i saw it on the shelf(beside middleton cherry, the only two blends in stock so it was a no brainer)Upon opening the pouch, i was surprised how dry the blend was, i expected a goopy mess, the aroma was musty and woody, not terrific. it took the match well and stayed lit the whole way down. I expected more of a cavendish presence but the pouch was dominated by ribbon cut burleys.The flavour was that of aromatic cedar and the room not was similar. The heat this blend gave off was "Royally uncomfortable" and i was not impressed in the least.Another crappy middleton blend with cheap cigarette tobacco and little flavour. Given my choices at the store id say it was the lesser of two evils but there are definatly better OTC blends out there. I will finish the pouch because i hate throwing anything out, but i will not be buying this again.

If you are just starting off as a pipe smoker then this is a good "starter" blend. Very mild, packs, lights and burns well, and can be satisfying if unexciting.

If you are starting out with pipe smoking or want a "generic" tasting, mildly sweet blend, Royal Comfort will fit the bill. I smoked this on and off many years ago and was never disatisfied. Over the years I have had the pleasure of smoking much better blends and as a result, Royal Comfort has fallen by the wayside. It is too minor league for me at this point in my pipe smoking experience. I can still give it a hearty recommendation since there is nothing wrong with it. If you are smoking out, you probably won't get any of those "it's a crime to smoke" stares that are all too prevalent in society these days.

I have smoked royal comfort for years and would not change. I have tried others but come back to royal comfort.

I remember this tobacco, Back in the 1980,s they had a Tv commercial featuring this, some of you oldsters may remember the old sea captain battoning down the hatches to ride out the storm. Well that inspired me to make this a regular blend at the time, it was alot better and cheaper than borkum riff.

Bought in semi-desperation, low expectations, pleasant surprise. Not half bad for a drugstore type. Not heavily Aromatic.
