A medium bodied blend, developed to be smooth and flavorful, with no bitter taste on the palate. This satisfying blend of flue-cured Gold Leaf, air-cured Burley and Oriental tobaccos tastes great. A Combination of Flue-cured, Burley and Oriental Tobaccos.

Mild to Medium None Detected Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The flue-cured Virginia is grassy and mildly sweet with a touch of citrus. The burley is a little toasty, nutty, with an essence of cocoa, but has very little sweetness as a second lead. The Oriental is slightly floral and woody in a supporting role. A thin ribbon cut that burns fairly quickly, this needs to be sipped to avoid harshness, and provide a smooth smoke. Won’t bite. Leaves no moisture in the bowl, and has a mild to medium nic-hit. Has no casing or topping. I recommend a little hydration as the tobacco is very dry, which will enhance the flavors a bit. Burns fast, but not hot, clean with a consistent flavor as it easily burns to ash. Hardly needs a relight. Has a pleasant after taste. An all day smoke that wears well in repeat performances.

D & R Tobacco - Vengeur Regular.

Sadly this has an issue I've found quite common for D & R, dryness. This one's not the worst, but it causes the lower recommendation. On the brighter side the mix is fairly uniform in its cut, and there isn't any unsmokeable pieces.

The dryness makes this light easily, and if I'm honest I quite like the actual flavour: some creamy Orientals, raw and nutty Burley, with a lesser amount of light Virginia. It tastes nice, but the taste has next to no time before it's all over; the dryness spoils the fun. The lack of moisture also raises the temperature, and with the bite I get causes an experience which isn't what I'd call 'enjoyable'.

The room-note's alright, and the nicotine's medium.

If it wasn't so dry I'd recommend it, but Vengeur can only have two stars; nice flavour, rubbish mechanics.

Somewhat recommended.

Reviewed as a cigarette tobacco: for me this one is not as good as Vengeur Silver. The added Va's in that one lift and balance the blend. Without them it's still good, but a little muddy in comparison, with some harshness the Silver doesn't have. C

This one has some value. The Virginias give a sweet note. The Burley some earth and a little more sweetness. The Orientals a mild touch of butter. The only thing dragging this down is the dryness. This one might be worth the effort to re-hydrate. It's hot but manageable.

Mild to medium in body and flavor. Needless to say it burns well and quick.

D&R (Daughters and Ryan) Vengeur Pipe Tobacco

Reviewing as RYO (Roll Your Own), MYO (Make Your Own), SYO (Suff Your Own) cigarette tobacco. Stunned by this one, must of got a bad bag. My finding are contrary to everything I researched. To me, does not fit the description at all. First couple puffs detect sweetness, with a little honeysuckle, then acidity takes over, total hot astrigency towards end of smoke. Aftertaste lingers on the back of my tounge, can't smoke two in a row or ruins the taste of smoking anything else. What is up, "no bitter taste on palate"? Suppose to be a balanced blend, all I get is sour. Hate to ding a reputable mfg or the merchant, but I can not smoke this anymore.

Edited 4/1/12 Sampled another bag, none of the enduring nasty sensation on the back of my tongue. More deeper honey/floral/a little roasted chestnut flavor. A bit much aftertaste for mass consumption. This bag would rate two stars. Based on inconsistancy, still a zero to one star overall.

Edited 5/7/12 Sampled third bag, more like the second bag. A little less floral, more apricot in flavor. Notice some throat harshness. Assuming the first bag was defective, two stars for the last two bags.
