This working man series is just messing up my routine and Five O'clock Shadow is no exception. This is really a pleasant smoke. The krumble kake is really easy to break down to pipe size. It crumbles easily and packs nicely. It does have a little more oomph than the others in the series. I enjoy it at five or later in the evening. You get a lot of creamy smoke and it is easy to get too eager so go gently. The complexity of it is kind of lost once you get going, but relights show there is a lot going on in the bowl. I recommend it. Oh and don't fill a large pipe this tobacco burns a long time. I small bowl it most of the time. A large bowl will take forever.

Pipe Used: BBB small yacht, Ashton Dublin

Age When Smoked: less than a year

Purchased From: Pipes and Cigars.com

Similar Blends: Reminds me somewhat of G.L Pease Jack Knife Plug but the burley presence makes it even better.
