|Okay, this is rubbish.
But, there's a but.
I mixed this 60/40 with some Cyprian that I've had hanging around and it smoked fine, kinda calmed the Cyp down and added a little sweetness.
I think this stuff could supply a cost effective base for some blending experiments: on its own it's a waste of matches!
|This is my first review on here, but i feel i have to let people know what this so called tobacco blend is like. The positive side is its very cheap i paid just over eight pounds for fifty gram, and when you open the pack there is a lovely lovely Virginia and fire cured Kentucky aroma and it packs easily....unfortunately this is where the positives end.
Now i smoked this in a brand new unsmoked corn cob, but when i lit i had to check i had lit it, there was nothing apart from smoke, a few more draws and still nothing, after a while i got a faint taste of the lovely virginias and fire cured kentucky but this soon went to be replaced by a foul, sour chemical taste which then turned to creamyness, then back to sour chemical taste, and it stayed this way through out the smoke, i dont know where the gorgeous pack aroma went but its obvious to me that the makers have simply used chemical flavourings to make it seem appealing. Also when cleaning my pipe the smell off it was like when you go round to a chain smokers house and the smell of acrid stale cigarette smoke, luckily it never tainted my pipe too much.
Now dont get me wrong, i like to give tobaccos a chance i believe one persons hate is anothers like, but i really cannot see why anyone who has the cash to buy a decent tobacconist or over the counter blend would buy this "tobacco", actually if this really is tobacco i will not only eat hay with the donkey ill eat the hay, the donkey and its barn . But the sad fact is the shop were i bought it from, when i told the shop keep about my experience, he actually said its one of his best selling tobacco products, and i can see why, but the famous saying is you get what you pay for, but i have had other budget shags that have been way more tastier and enjoyable. The one good thing though is that other pipe tobacco makers dont use this crud as a bench mark, now im a not a religious man but i thank god very highly that this isnt the case.
