The only tobacco I taste is a little nuttiness from the burley. The toppings are hazelnut, raspberry, and something else that I can't identify. Has little nicotine. Doesn't bite, but can burn a little warm if you are a fast puffer. Burns just a little slow with a consistent flavor. It's a little syrupy at times. Even with dry time, it can burn moist and leave a little dottle. You'll always have to wipe the bowl out after a smoke. An all day smoke.

Mild Strong Medium to Full Very Pleasant

This tastes very similar to other Lane blends. However, nothing about this one puts it above or even with 1Q, LL7, or RLP6. It's decent enough when mixed with some high nic five brothers.

I tried this blend recently to compare it to a Lord of the Rings type blend that I had heard quite a bit about. Just for hte record, I believe they are one and the same.

RHQ-3 can, of course, be found under a plethora of names in bulk. It's pretty much as I expected, and just as described. It is a cool smoke if you don't rush it. There is no real tobacco flavor, and the nutty - berry flavoring can be enjoyable, if the bowl is small enough. The taste never changes, and it has a definite tendency to get a bit bitter toward the end of the bowl.

Since it is heavily saturated with humecants (sp?) the end of the bowl isn't much of a concern anyway - it's going to be goopy and wet.

Load it up, smoke maybe a third, and when you're bored with it, toss the rest. Dry the pipe for a month or so...

Lane Limited - RHQ-3.

The ribbons are quite coarse, brown, black, and golden, in colour, nicely hydrated, with a strongly aromatic pouch aroma.

It lights up easily, giving a good burn, with a cool smoke. The toppings smother the tobacco flavours, making this a red blooded aromatic. I get quite a pleasing nutty note from the additions, some of the raspberry acidity, but the strongest flavour's more exotic: like papaya, or something. And atop of these flavours sits a sugary, sticky, sweetness. The smoke's thick, and I get no bite.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant.

I couldn't give this anymore than one star:

Not recommended.

This is the second Lane bulk tobacco I smoked, 1Q was the first. I am not impressed. It smokes a bit hot, and it has some bite, but at least it's not quite as moist as 1Q. It has a nice scent in the baggy. It seems to have a slight ghost of flavor where 1Q had none. I can only label this as "inoffensive". But what a disappointment that that's the most positive characteristic of a tobacco! Cheap, but not worth the time. Not recommended.

This is a decent tobacco for the new pipe smoker, it has no real strong taste and it can be smoked with total disregard for pace, and you will not have a sore mouth. If you can as a new smoker slow yourself down there are some nice flavors to be had, hazelnut, and berries (maybe raspberries). I would not want to smoke this one often unless I had enough pipes to rotate every two weeks, because there is a fair amount of goop at the bottom of the pipe when finished. This tobacco is very average and by no means exceptional.

This is your typical Lane bulk blend. Great aroma, pretty wet, not much tobacco flavor...but this stuff is good! For some reason, this is my Christmas Morning smoke, so I always keep a little on hand. It's flavored with raspberry and hazelnut and is a 50/50 mix of golden and black ribbon. This was also the first bulk blend that really got my attention. It can bite if you use it for an all day smoke, which is probably why I don't smoke it more often. Taste and aromawise, it's a fine blend.
