If ever there should be a blend worthy of the Roman God of Wine that blend is Bacchanalia. In consensus among wine connoisseurs and smokers alike, this fine Burley and Virginia blend is worthy of lasting admiration.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

This presents as a mild VaBur with a fruit and wine topping. The tin note is pleasant and does not smell of checmicals. Mine was in a pretty good state of humidity for smoking and did not require drying.

The smoking experience is pleasant. The fruit taste is slightly sweet and there is a little tart flavor there. You never forget it is a VaBur. This makes a nice combination.

Mild Medium Medium Pleasant

The medium brown, lightly sweet Virginia acts mainly as a base for the mild earthy, nutty burley. The red wine topping is medium strength. Though it doesn't crowd out the other flavors, the wine taste is the high quality major player with some sweetness and some tangy tartness. Relaxing and smooth, burns well and cooly with no goop. This is a very comforting smoke that goes well with hot tea or coffee, but that's hardly a requirement for enjoyment. An all day smoke that leaves a very pleasant after taste, and keeps you interested in smoking it.

Extremely Mild Medium to Strong Medium to Full Tolerable

This stuff tastes like garbage tobacco that has been cased with cheap wine, propylene glycol and only God and Sutliff know what other chemicals. If the Roman God of wine favored wine at a grade somewhere between Sutter Home and Boone's Farm, then the description is not over the top.

I wouldn't buy this again if it was a penny. You couldn't give me the stuff for free and get me to smoke it. If all pipe tobacco tasted like this, then I would just stick with cigars. I must say that some people obviously like this stuff. After trying three different bowls at different times to see if maybe my palate was just off (nope), I gave it to the guy who cuts my hair and told him he is welcome to just throw it away if he does not like it. The next time he cut my hair, I asked him if he liked it. He said it "did fine in a pinch." Personally, I would rather just smoke nothing if I ran out of good stuff. Thankfully, I have a considerable stash with a plethora of blends and won't miss this Bacchanalia stuff one bit.

Mild to Medium Medium Medium Pleasant

I really like the wine flavor of this tobacco. It probably isn't for everyone but it works for me. It burns smooth and stays lit without much work. The flavor is not chemical or have an artificial taste like I suspected. Room note nice, but not overpowering.Tin note smells like red wine, very pleasant all around smoke.

Mild Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

The topping is sweet, fruity wine. Very tasty. The tobacco flavors are slightly more pronounced than the topping. A big positive is that the Black Cav doesn't take over the blend. It stays in the background becoming only a little more evident toward the end. A very nice blend.

Mild in body. Medium in flavor. Burns well.

The Tin aroma exhibits a pleasant wine smell ---red wine perhaps. The tobacco needs a little air time to bring out its tangy and comforting taste. I am writing this in the middle of a heat wave and this is a nice summer time blend.
