Burley-like leaves are fire-cured with aromatic wood to add a distinctly smoky note. This is a strong and spicy leaf, and should be used sparingly to keep it from overpowering a blend. Can also be smoked straight.

Mahogany colored thin ribbons with a bag aroma of spicy mustiness. I picked up some of this to use in some blending experiments but smoked 5 bowls straight as well. While doing so, I had to remind myself that this is primarily for blending. It had a nice spicy flavor, but it was on the thin side. Comparisons to Old Dark Fired or Cumberland are pretty unfair, so I tried to be objective. As a straight smoke, I could see this working for someone that wanted the bold flavor of dark fired Kentucky but wanted to tone down the richness and nicotine. This would work that way, for sure.

As a blender, this one showed more strengths. Mixed with various Virginias, perique and orientals, the weaknesses of it as a straight smoke were minimized and the spice that it lends maximized the potential of anything I blended ( not that I'm really much good as a blender). As noted, a little goes a long way and it will easily overcome less flavorful components if not mixed conservatively. It may not be the most inspired dark fired blend out there, but it doesn't embarrass itself. A nice addition to a blending table.

Smoking as I type. Smokey, spicy, pretty mono, but not bad. I blend some but haven't this one. I really see it as a medium all day smoke. Have it in a small briar. Four or five lights. Wife says it has a light chocolate room note and would be an insider for her, big plus. Burns a little fast , but nothing near Five Brothers. Pretty low nic. Maybe Irish Fakes little brother.

Pipe Used: Various briars

Age When Smoked: Not sure, came pretty dry

Purchased From: Pipes and Cigar

Similar Blends: Irish Flake, 1792, Dark Birdseye, but much lighter....
