No complexity to speak of, besides the molasses and brown sugar sweetness and a little nuttiness from the burley and a little black cavendish. If it does have a coconut topping, the coconut is very mild. I didn't notice a change in the flavor from beginning to end. It burned cool and clean at a moderate pace, though a little moist, and won't bite or get harsh. Has very little nicotine. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Sports a pleasant, if unremarkable after taste. A work and play all day smoke when you just want a pleasant tasting burley that you don't have to think about much. Probably deserves another half star.
Check for smoke coming out of the tobacco chamber. Otherwise, you may not know your pipe's lit... An extremely mild Burley with a hint of additional flavoring. Very similar to Prince Albert with a bit more sauce.
This tobacco is in fact Lane's Burley Light Without a Bite re-named by the fine folks at Just For Him. I know this because I am a regular customer and have watched them bag orders on numerous occasions. This listing shouldn't even be on this web site.
This tobacco reminds me of Burley Light Without a Bite, only with a little more of everything. It has a little more burley nuttiness, a little more sweetness, a little better room note, and the same ease of packing and lighting. Relights are better than average for a tobacco with an aromatic component, and it's a good DGT blend. The price is very good, $19.95 for a pound. Buccaneer's Blend is a good blend that can be smoked all day long and will please those around you. 13 of 20 points for taste, 7 of 10 for lighting and burn rate, and 8 of 10 for value. 28 out of a possible 40 points equals a solid three star rating for Buccaneer's Blend.
