Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant

When I started smoking a pipe in the early 1970s, this was my go-to tobacco. Yeah, it was bitey, but it tasted good (compared to the Whiskey and Cherry) and the room note was good. I smoked cans and cans of it, then switched to Sir Walter Raleigh regular (big switch, I know) and lost track of it.

I have moved on to other blends, but I remember BR Cognac fondly.

Pipe Used: Kaywoodie Zulu, Yellow Bowl metal, Grabow Omega

Age When Smoked: fresh from pack

I smoked this back in the 80s and the cognac was the best flavor out of all of them. I was mad when they stopped exporting this !

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

It burned hot as most BR products did in those days, but I thought it also had a little more flavor than some of the other BR products. The cognac taste was a little bitey, but had a decent mild flavor. Sometimes, I did get a taste of Virginia when I smoked it, something not always true of their mixtures. Burned fast, but didn't bite as often as some of the other BK products.
