Alamo pipe tobacco brings to you the combination of mocha and nougat. The can note could be its own air freshener. Smoking this blend is cool and creamy.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

Not a bad tobacco, not outstanding. The taste was not very strong, but there was a hint of caramel. Smoked easily without relighting. Bought it as part of a 4 tin sampler set, so the price was very low, making this tobacco a good value.

Tin was opened months ago. I think a little drying time has helped. Smoked and reviewed on March 6, 2015.

A very pleasant smoke, my wife was not as wild about the room note as some others that I smoke. Burned to the bottom with a white ash. I really like the aftertaste. The mocha stands out. I will buy it again, to smoke when I am not around my wife

Mild to Medium Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The unsweetened black cavendish offers some brown sugar as the main component. The nutty, earthy burley is a condiment. The mild mocha is the dominant topping. The nougat has a little richness that the mocha lacks, and both work together seamlessly. The strength level is a step past mild, while the taste falls a hai short of mild to medium. Has a very light nic-hit. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with smooth, lightly creamy, sweet taste that weakens a little in the last third of the experience, and you’ll notice the burley more then. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste, and is an all day smoke, though it suffers from lacks depth. Two and a half stars.

Medium Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

Very mild cool burning tobacco but not on a par with Trout Stream. Cut consists of rather large flakes. Great price and really attractive can.
