pipesandcigars.com Mark Twain Memoir
Notes: From P&C's website: When Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known to us as Mark Twain, didn't have a cigar nearby, he had his trusty corn cob pipes, and he made it clear that they were Missouri Meerschaums. Opinions differ as to what he smoked in those pipes, but we think that he would have enjoyed Mark Twain Memoir pipe tobacco. Select, rich burley is combined with choice, zesty Virginia and aged to perfection. Then the tobaccos are treated to a singular cordial flavor that delivers a mellow sweetness to the taste, and creates a room note that's so enjoyable that you'll want to walk out of the room when you're finished and walk back in so you can take full advantage of the aroma yourself. If you like a smooth aromatic, you're going to love Mark Twain Memoir.

Package note of peaty vegetation and herbal mint like. Tobacco is a ribbon and ready rub mix of brown and dark brown with tan mixed in. Moisture content is good, some pipe smokers will want to hydrate it a bit. Burns fast with few relights. The strength is mild to medium and nic is mild. Flavoring is mild, with notes that remind me of spearmint. Flavoring remains in the background from beginning to end. Taste is medium and moderately consistent, with notes of spearmint, peaty vegetation, dry nuts, slight spicy, herbal hay, molasses, earth, spices, floral, wood, sweet tangy dark fruit, grassy, mildly savory, a mildly minty and semi-sweet bread background note, and a moderately peppery retro. Burley is leading with Virginia and Flavoring supporting. Room note is pleasant, and aftertaste is good.
