Developed for the smoker who has acquired a taste for the European or Dutch style of extra fine cut, fire-cured tobacco. The highest grades of dark fired tobacco, from specific growth areas have been selected to provide a superior taste and aroma. Special attention was then given to the methods of blending and cutting the tobaccos to ensure that a unique Premium Dutch Blend was achieved.

Notes: RYO Tobacco.

As I sit puffing a bowl from a fresh bag sent over by pipesandcigars I find the questions a little difficult. How do rate a blend of the finest leaves cured and flavored by a time honored tradition of flue curing. No sprays of casing to cover up sub par tobacco. Mr Ryan single handedly saved a struggling industry of top shelf tobacco farms including Perique and brings simple tobacco to wonderful flavors. I like it natural and the moment you open the bag you are greeted with a heady aroma of wood smoke in a pure danish tradition smoking very smooth in a full mouth of bittersweet and complex tast. Each puff begs for another to pick out the different flavors. Wonderful stuff!

This medium-strong shag is a must have for folks who want something sweet, strong and easy to smoke. The shag comes quite dry and a couple of ounces fills a pint jar. Bag note: coffee and molasses. Like other dry shags, it smokes best when firmly packed, just to the point of a tight but open draw. Great for stormy weather and quick breaks as it packs easily and stays put. Initial flavor is super sweet, dark caramelized tobacco. Mid bowl, sweetness fades and I start to feel just how strong this stuff is. Can be smoked to oblivion, but gentle tamping and puffs are needed to prevent a hot ashy tongue. I think this would be a great tobacco for someone who's transitioning away from cigarettes, as it is powerful and extremely easy to smoke. Leaves my cobs dry and easy to clean. Just my opinion, but if you're trying to decide between Ryback and Ryback Gold, stick with the Ryback as it's more flavorful and smokes cooler. Available in bulk at an excellent price from pipesandcigars. Hope this review is helpful. Happy smoking!
