Until the End pipe tobacco is fragrant, comforting, mellow, and rich — a broken flake boasting a combination of top grade sun grown Ecuadorian cigar leaf, Virginias, the same cigar leaf cavendish used in Kings Stride, and a specially selected dark fired Kentucky grade that's a tad less smoky than normal varieties. Also like the wine blend that shares its name, Until the End delivers deep, robust, and earthy flavors, sure to be a loyal companion from the charring light onward.

Until The End is a cigar blend that is mild enough for those who wish to try the genre but aren’t sure they can handle strong tobacco, or they just want something smooth and mild, as cigar blends go. Note also that there is no Latakia in this blend. The reviewed tin is dated 05-19-20. In the tin, moist, well broken flakes feature varietals that run from tan to medium and dark brown, with a tin note like earthy, faintly musty, cigar-ish bread. The ribbons can be plucked straight from the tin, stuffed and smoked, or - better – dried some, then stuffed and smoked. Dried some, it handles, loads, lights and smokes down fine. I am not up to speed on cigar Cavendish, but this blend is mildly earthy, musty and cigar-ish, with added floral whiffs if snorked lightly, and it has a very nice mouth feel. The lot is very well melded, also consistent, top to bottom. I honestly can’t draw a bead on the KY, either, except to say it’s more nutty than smoky, and it has a little of the buttery tannin that I enjoy. The bright/flue cured VAs almost “sparkle” as they temper the mildly peppery cigar spices. There’s plenty of smoke. Strength ramps up to medium, with the nicotine trailing that. Tastes can get past medium if one tugs, as I tend to do. Room note is tolerable. Aftertaste is a lingering trailing off of the best of the smoke.

Until the End surprised me a little, as I was expecting something stronger and bolder. It actually seems like a “luxury” blend to me, in that it’s so smooth and generally civilized. It’s a perfectly good smoke, and I will smoke it all, but for me it does not quite make it to the top of the heap, either in its “class” or overall. 3 stars.

@Moniker nailed his review. I give it 3 stars as an after dinner smoke. Though it's mellow enough for it, the flavor profile would be unfavorable for most gentlemen as a morning smoke.

Cornell & Diehl - Warped: Until The End.

Some of the blend is in flake form but the majority has assumed the construction of VERY coarse ribbons. Overall it appears dark brown, it takes a closer look to identify the fluctuations in colour. The hydration of my tin (dated 04/16/20) is perfect for me; a touch moist but smokable.

I lit a bowl first thing this morning and haven't smoked any other blend today! It isn't a dry, sharp, cigar leaf flavour, but much creamier. Like I said in my Kings Stride review, the Cavendish process has turned the cigar leaf into a more luxurious, butyraceous affair; mild and silky. There's a tad of smoky, musky, Kentucky, but the support slot goes to the sweet, succulent, ripe, Virginias. The burn from it occurs without a hitch, needing only the odd tamp. And the actual smoke? Icy-cold, thick and totally free from bite; to my palate.

Nicotine: just below medium. Room-note: not 'that' bad.

Until The End? I love it! Four stars:

Highly recommended.
