Sweet Virginia mixed with smooth burley. A unique and mellow blend.

Notes: Colts pipe tobacco is inspired by the Colts cigar range. The brand was launched in selected markets in 2009.

This blend of rough-cut gold and brown leaves is probably my favourite over-the-counter tobacco. It has a nice rummy/caramel scent in the pouch, lights easy, burns clean, and yields a slightly sweet and mild-tasting smoke that is pleasant for both the smoker and anyone else in the room. It is relatively cool and dry, and burns down to a medium-fine white/gray ash that coats the bowl nicely. I enjoy this blend both for its smoking qualities, and for breaking in a pipe (new or cleaned) after lightly coating the clean bowl with a thin layer of honey or agave syrup. This seems to establish a nice, neutrally flavoured cake fairly quickly.

Availability note: In Ontario, I have found this and the Colts American Mixture for sale at some convenience stores and smoke shops, which is nice if I don't have the time to visit a specialty tobacconist.

STG - Colts Deluxe Gold.

Inside the pouch resides a medium brown, simple ribbon cut blend. The smell coming from said pouch is ever so slightly aromatic; sort of fondant and sweet. The moisture's good and as it's from a pouch the blend isn't all compressed together. Due to this it's total bliss to load and fill with.

Sometimes I've stumbled upon a lesser reviewed blend that's absolutely awesome; e.g. Orlik Royal Club, other times I light up a less popular blend and imminently see why it has very few followers.

On the plus side, it's easy to light. After that, it's all down hill: firstly the smoke's far too hot, it's like sucking on a furnace. There's a sort of added flavour that comes through but it's really mild and I can't quite tell if it's from alcohol, nuts, or something sweet. The burn's fast, really fast and it bites like absolute hell; to the point of becoming unbearable. The point I'll finish on is the room-note: horrible.

Not recommended.

I was pleasantly surprised with this tobacco. I received this and the american mixture as gifts and wasn't giving these much thought, but one whiff of the rum flavouring and my interest was piqued. The rum flavour and aroma is the star of this tobacco. The sweetness compliments the flavouring nicely. While the natural tobacco flavour is masked a bit by the casing, I don't have any problems with that. I enjoy it and recommend it to people who want a flavourful aromatic. I definitely enjoy this one more so than the American mixture.
