Uhle's is an old friend. I lived in Milwaukee in the early to mid-1980s, and though fortune, good and bad, has moved me many times since, I have never lost touch. The two reasons I keep coming back are old world courtesy and complete integrity.

Unlike so many shops that claim to do their own blending, Uhle's actually DOES; I've seen their blending operation many times. Likewise, their store-brand pipes are made right there on Wisconsin Aenue.

Now...to Marquette Blend. This is definitely a treat for the aromatic smoker. As with all Uhle's blends, the components are first-rate, and the aromatic agent does not mask the tobacco flavors. The room note is decidedly aromatic, though never cloying. If one is used to entirely neutered and homoginized aromatic blends, Marquette will be educational. If one is accustomed to a natural blend, Marquette will do...in a pinch.

For me, this is not a tinkering and puttering-around smoke, unless you are simply looking for something to put in your pipe. There is subtlty and complexity to be found here; it can, and does, call attention to itself. I would therefore not recommend this while using power tools. And if one picks up the tempo too much, this can be pushed into the hot zone.

For a completely satisfying and effortless smoke, regardlss of preference, I would strongly suggest Uhle's Blend 300 instead.

Two out four stars.
