From Pipes&Cigars website: Super Value Bourbon Whiskey uses fine Virginias and burleys to create a cool smoking blend that is made sweeter and more fragrant by the addition of premium bourbon whiskey flavor. The flavor is subtle, and the room note is enjoyable, but most of all, you get all of this at a price that will make you smile.

The Virginia is a little grassy and has some citrus. The burley is a little nutty with some earth and molasses, and is just a little more noticeable than the Virginia. The black cavendish is mildly sweet with a touch of vanilla in a support role. The bourbon whiskey topping is creamy sweet with the flavor you would expect from a high quality brand. It does sublimate the effect of the tobaccos to a fair extent without overwhelming your senses. The strength of the blend is medium. The taste is nearly full and never weakens, nor does it ever get harsh. Won’t bite. Has a mild nic-hit. Doesn’t leave much moisture in the bowl, and will burn to ash. Whether you consider it to be an all day smoke depends on your proclivity for bourbon whiskey, but it is a blend that wears well on your taste buds during your smoking day. Like a fine bourbon whiskey, I find it works best when sipped at a slow to moderate rate. Has a very pleasant, lingering after taste and room note.

I received a good sized sample of this from a friend and had very low expectations. Now the sample was of good size, but only really made three bowls as I used three extremely large bowled pipes to smoke it.

The first bowl was my Altinok Canadian (Meerschaum). I smoked this and thought it terrible, lacking in flavor and told my benefactor so. He assured me I was full of crap, noticing later in the day that I had sinus problems forming I started to believe him, but would not let him know until I could rule out the fact that it may actually be him that is full of crap.

The second bowl was had last Saturday, and for that one I used my extremely large Randy Wiley Feather carved Freehand (briar). I lit this up and smoked it amongst many stops while running errands in the morning and I must say I really enjoyed it. Very nutty and very sweet. I was starting to believe that my friend may have been right, that I may have truly been full of crap. Well, at this point, I had nothing left to do but blame the pipe, so it must be that it just burns better in briar than Meer.

Fast Forward to my last bowl in my large Baki Volcano (meer). It is confirmed, I was full of crap. This is a very good aromatic. I also take back my earlier statement to my friend that I preferred Borkum Riff's Bourbon Whiskey to this. This is, indeed, a better smoke to my tastes. It will not overwhelm you with complexity, but I doubt anyone buying this would even expect it to.

It is nutty, biteless and pleasantly sweet. I am not sure if this is a true whiskey taste or a sweet whiskey flavored syrup, but it doesn't matter as it tastes good and is not over applied. This one is not goopy and I am sure anyone looking at it would expect it to be. For the dollar amount and depending on the smoker, this could easily go four stars, I am giving it three as I have had Aromatics that I think are much better, but this one is deserving of three stars.

I had pretty low expectations when I ordered this, but the reviews were pretty favorable. Wow, talk about bang for the buck. It is not as refined as most tobacco's - a few stems, etc. The flavor was a great surprise. I have consumed a bit of bourbon in my day and the casing on this is realistic as I have tasted in a whiskey blend. Does it overpower the tobacco? Well, yes, but is that always a bad thing? If I had wanted the strong tobacco flavor I would smoke a blend without casing. I think I will buy the big bag next time.

Wow I was not expecting to enjoy this blend as much as I did! $4 price tag at the very expensive Davidoff store in a Casino on the strip was sending me a bad vibe since the tins are $20 but I plopped down my $5 and got change back! It's weird they dont seal these pouches, no ziplock or adhesive etc.. Aroma is nutty and slightly alcoholic but nothing is over the top, chunky ribbon / OTC rough cut in various browns and black. Didn't burn hot or bite, great room note and tasty! Make sure you get the gold pouch, these new pouches are much better leaf than the giant super value bags.

Super Value - Bourbon Whiskey.

This is my choice today as it's my Aromatic Sunday!

The pouch holds a blend that has an appearance which isn't what the description says. It isn't a ribbon, but a coarse cut/mixture. It contains more Burley and Virginia than black Cavendish, isn't too damp, and has quite a potent smell of whiskey to it.

When I lit my first bowl the smoke I got wasn't as I expected. I still feel the same. See, the name Super Value imbues a feeling of 'budget', but the smoke is much better than that! The black Cavendish gives the least flavour, Virginia and Burley account for the prominence of the smoke. The tobaccos have a 'regular' taste, for this type of blend. It's the topping which surprised me, this doesn't taste cheap. It isn't astringent, bitter, alcohol-sharp, or the way I'd assume a cheaper blend to be. It has sweetness, is slightly fragrant, and the alcoholic note doesn't consume the flavour; the alcoholic trait adds a minor 'zest', but nothing more. The burn from it's faultless, being cool, steady, and below medium in speed. I get no tongue bite.

Nicotine: above mild. Room-note: quite nice.

Super Value Bourbon Whiskey? Although I don't tend to favour whiskey aromatics I think this is as good as any in this genre. So, for cost and quality I'll give it four stars:

Highly recommended.

This beats Borkum Riff or Erin Go Braugh in flavor and price. I also smoke Stokkebye Highland Whiskey and this compares to it in quality. The taste is different as one is a bourbon and the other is a highland whiskey with malt that has been smoked in a fire of peat. The flavor hangs on for the entire bowl rather than disappearing as a lot of other whiskey blends do. It seems to have a better balance between the burley and Virginia components than a lot of other whiskey blends do. If you like whiskey blends or know someone who does then this is worth a try. I was surprised by the depth and intensity of the flavor. Don't expect performance equal to the high rollers that cost $5 per ounce. Take it for what it is. A good honest tobacco for everyday use or those on a budget that have to make every dollar count.

Smells of whiskey infused cigars, musty candy.

The flavor is of sweetness and vanilla, typical of the Cavendish in the blend and of Bourbon. Good as a budget/value blend, but not interesting to the more discerning smoker who isn't terribly restricted by budget.
