I have a brother who used to smoke roll your own cigarettes before switching to a pipe. I had a tn of this open and was smoking it when he came by the house one afternoon. I told him this pipe tobacco had a somewhat bitter-sweet taste and was not very strong. I thought it might make a good RYO. My brother whipped out his pocked knife and cut the strands up a bit and rolled one. He loved it and said it burned slow for a cigarette. I thought the blend burned fast for a pipe. The flavor was great and the fine cut made for a wonderful presentation... for both of us!

Very fine shag cut that is more for RYO cigarettes than a pipe. It burn fast and if puffed fast is harsh and has no taste. The taste is of citrus and hay slightly sweet. It's a quality tobacco for cigarettes but it misses the mark, for me, as a pipe tobacco.

Medium to Strong None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant

Sweet hay with just a touch of citrus tang and a hint of honey. Needs to be packed firmly and smoked slowly or you risk heat and harshness. Has a fair amount of body. For my uses it makes a better blender than a stand-alone smoke. 2 stars by itself. 3 as a blender. Gonna rate it as 2.

Body is medium to strong. Nic is medium. No added flavorings. Taste is mild to medium. Burns like tinder.

I the spring time I used to brush the matted winter coat of my wife's golden retriever. McConnell's fine cut appearance reminds me the balls of fur that would accumulate in the dog's brush. This stuff - the tobacco, not the fur - is not simply cut into shag tobacco, it is shaved super fine into something unique. It has a mild, straight Virginia taste and I couldn't detect any preservative or flavorings. It is one of those mixtures that you are glad you tried but you wouldn't be eager to stockpile a hoard of it.

Age When Smoked: 3 years

A mix of light and medium colored Virginia's in a true shag cut. Damp when tin first opened. I'm thinking Glycol or one of the many other agents or chemicals that the industry will not confirm or deny that they use. The tin & packaging are nice but the poor print quality & off center label placement seen to be the standard, since so many of the old British labels were taken over by (German tobacco giant)Kohlhase Kopf. If your a fan of shag's than give this one a try...

Pipe Used: Molina briar & Club Modiano's

Age When Smoked: fresh tin
