Drucquer & Sons Loch Ness
Artfully developed by Gregory Pease, Loch Ness is a Scottish-style crumble plug mixture comprising ribbons of small-leaf Oriental, smoky Cypriot Latakia, and rare Louisiana perique, elevated by bright lemon and matured red Virginia tobaccos. Once blended, the loose mixture is pressed and aged in cakes to meld flavors, then cut into plugs — combining the flavor-enhancing benefits of the pressing process with an easy, straightforward preparation for the pipe.

I expected to like this tobacco very much, but I was disappointed. Opening the tin, the smell is of fruit, not tobacco. My wife, from across the room said "Wow, that is sweet." She had the same reaction a week later. The smell is not unpleasant, but like perfume that might initially smell intriguing it is of the kind: I don't want to sit by that person while eating dinner. Other reviewers have noted the likelihood of some topping or casing. This is not one that helps the tobacco. It is noticeable at first, but the effect on the rest of the bowl is negative: it hides the tobaccos and tends to make the taste uniformly flat and even unpleasant. Its a shame, for the tobacco looks excellent. I admit my aging neurons might have destructively interfered with the signals that people who like it are getting, but I cannot recommend it.
