Low Country - Rum.

Like the picture here it's a medium size ribbon, constructed of mostly brown and dark brown pieces. Only a few border on being black, and to ascertain the true colour I had to take the pouch into the garden to use the morning light to help quantify: dark brown or black?! It has a slightly sharp, alcoholic aroma. The pouch looked like Smokingpipes.com had brimmed it way beyond the prescribed one ounce, bless them!

Sadly I can't reward their generosity with any higher than one star. It isn't all bad, the smoke's cool, it doesn't bite, and the tobaccos have a sweet, nutty flavour. But the wheels come down on L.C.R. when the rum's taken into account. The best word I can use to describe the topping would be bitter. Rum? Well I get no molasses, sugar, or actual flavour, the only thing I pick up is an astringent alcoholic character: tastes like it's been cased with methylated spirits.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant to tolerable.

Sure, the tobaccos don't taste too bad, but considering the topping tastes like rubbing alcohol there's no way this gets any more than one star:

Not recommended.

Low Country, Rum: A standard white burley blend with a little rum topping

The white burley is the star of this blend. It is a little nutty and produces a pleasantly thick smoke. The cavendish seems to be made up of barely processed Virginia tobacco, which offer some bright-grassy notes to be smoke. This is not your standard black cavendish and it adds no creaminess to the blend, though the blend as a whole has no harsh spots. The topping is barely there. I can taste the rum but not the maple syrup. As such, I tend to group this tobacco with other codger blends and not as a heavily cased aromatic. The room note is almost a dead ringer for cigarettes, which I don’t mind, but my friends commented on it. Overall, I like this blend but not enough to buy more of it.
