Quality black Cavendish and light Virginia leaf are combined in a rough cut here, then given a strong dose of Sambuca liquor.

Very Mild Strong Medium to Full Very Pleasant

I was pleasantly surprised with a sample of this delicious blend. Ever since i was a kid i've always loved black licorice. Well this blend is full of it. Nice and mild with no bite, with a full taste of anisette which stays on the palate after you finish puffing. Wife friendly! I had just enough 1792 flake to make a tall meerschaum bowlful and i kept capping it off with some of this sambuca every time i did an ash dump and it really did a nice job of flavoring the already delicious flake .Next up was straight up bowl of the sambuca in my falcon. Very satisfying .

If you are one of those people who picks out all the black jellybeans out of the mix, you will love this blend. Quality tobacco with a flavorful topping. Like all of Peter Stokkebye tobaccos I have smoked it is great quality at a great price point. I guess that is why his line has been sold as house tobacco at som many shops for a great number of years. Pack well in the pipe and smokes cool and flavorful. It says Anise and that ain't no lie! One thing though you may want to dedicate a cob to this one cause it will leave you with the ghost of jelly beans past.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

As soon as I received my latest order from Pipes & Cigars and opened the box, I could smell the PS Sambuca tobacco. So, being someone who loves licorice, I couldn't wait to try it.

Well, having now smoked about half a dozen bowls in different pipes, I must say I am rather disappointed. PS Sambuca does have a licorice flavor when lit but the taste is not nearly as intense as the aroma and, once the pipe is lit, dissipates rather quickly. What one is left with is a rather mild tasting tobacco that reminds me a lot of Captain Black White, which I used to smoke on occasion 15-20 years ago.

Oh well, PS Sambuca is so inexpensive that I don't regret my purchase and I'm sure I will eventually use up the half a pound that I bought, but I'll keep looking for a tobacco that satisfies my licorice craving.

Good smoke, nice flavor - the licorice really comes out. Nice tobacco blend, burns well. BUT - the room note was not a wife pleaser. Sorry, I won't be smoking this one again!
