|I've been pipe and cigar smoking for nearly a year now. I reviewed this blend when I was first starting in my pipe smoking journey, and I liked it alot when I first reviewed it.
I still do! I absolutely love this blend! It produces a nice thick white smoke, and it makes for some really nice smoke rings! Also has a great room note! My wife loves the smell! The only downside, like many cased blends, about half way through a bowl, it starts to gurgle. It's rather mild, especially considering I like medium strength cigars, but a couple of bowls and I'm good! This is my go-to pipe tobacco.
I have tried many different types of pipe tobaccos and I still keep coming back to this one. I've bought quite a few pipes too, and it smokes well in all of them.
It's called "Rum Mixture" and I love high quality rum (liquor) but honestly, it doesn't taste like rum to me. Not quite vanilla either, but it's a nice sweetness that I still think tastes great!
I still give this four stars, like in my original edit, and I really have to recommend it if you like flavored tobaccos.
|This is my third sample from their 4-pack sampler. The description above states "black cavendish" only, however I can see different shades of brown mixed in as well as black.
The tin aroma is a pleasant sweetness, although I can't say it smells like rum. Nor does it taste like rum (no matter, I've not tried a rum tobacco yet that actually tastes like rum....maybe it burns off thus altering the rum taste). To me it has a very nice chocolate/coffee flavor. It burns very cool for such a moist tobacco; does produce a small amount of gurgle about halfway down the bowl. Light in the nicotine department.
All in all, it's a well rounded smoke. I'll give it 3-stars.
