HU Tobacco The Bullet

This is a medium strong pleasant spicy ready rubbed flake from dark red Virginia, mixed with a pinch of perique and a hint of Havana and Brazil tobacco. The pronounced malty and discreetly tart sweetness of red Virginia is wonderfully supported by the spicy tobaccos and great rounded. We have added a new, specially developed flavor as a topping to this mixture. The result is a pleasantly spicy and at the same time subtly fruity sourish blend, whose iridescent taste always provides tension without being uneasy. If you like great natural tobaccos and are not averse to an enigmatic topping, who wants to get involved in a taste adventure and always has the tobacco qualities in mind, you should try this tobacco.

This was a gift from a friend. I have been smoking it in a variety of pipes, but most of it was smoked in a Grabow pot. It came at a good level of hydration for me, and I smoked it as delivered.

I found this an enjoyable smoke. From Jim's review, I think he got more topping in the flavor than I did, and it is possible some of it flashed off in my sample. I got a good tobacco flavored blend with some pleasant fruit notes. In terms of intensity for the topping, I would put it in the class of an Amphora Full or a Sail Yellow.

There was a slightly harsh nose tickle on the snork. The topping is a fruit I can't identify, and the perique adds to the fruit taste. There is a somewhat sour, earthy bass note to the blend that I found pleasant, and the smoke is repeatable for me. There is enough there to interest, but I did not experience palate fatigue.

It was an easy smoke, and it was easy to keep at a simmer.

This is a classic 3 for me. If it were all I had, I would be quite happy smoking nothing but The Bullet. Distribution and the price point make it unlikely I will keep it around when there are other bulk options I like.
