I have to agree with Gent Zombie on this one. This baby was really, really dry. I can't remember ever having a bowl of baccy that lasted so, well, short (less than ten minutes in a medium bowl!). I liked the taste, but just when you think you might be getting used to it, the experience comes to an abrupt and unsatisfactory end (up in smoke, as it were).

I complain frequently about heavy, nicotine rich blends, Penhooker is not that, which is more than fine with me. I think there's room in the pipe smoking world for light baccy's like Penhooker, really, there should be many, many more of them, but honestly, if you want baccy's like this to fly, make it so the experience lasts a bit longer.

I'll give this one a strong 2 stars (2.75). I'd have given a solid 3 stars if it hadn't of been so fleeting.

Keep on Pipin'

This comes bone dry and as a result burns quickly with some heat. The flavor is sweet and only very mildly citrusy, tasting somewhat orange-like. If you push this one you will create a flame-thrower. Smoked moderately a small amount of pleasure can be derived from it.

Mild in body. Mild to medium in flavor. If you need more than one match per bowl you're doing something wrong.
