I bought a one pound brick of this stuff based on the reviews here and I have to disagree with the majority, I think this is pretty nasty stuff. To me it tastes like cardboard or maybe a paper bag, real harsh smoke, tons of nicotine. I can't keep it going, I have to put it out and recover a few minutes, light and puff a few times, put it out, repeat. It almost makes me green from the nicotine, it's four star stuff if you like that kind of thing.

To calm it down I tried to mix it half and half with some Peter Stokkebye Balkan Supreme which I though could use a little kick, but instead I got a mix that tasted like smokey cardboard and it was still over the top in the nicotine department.

On the plus side, it may work well as a natural insectiside for your house plants LOL.

One other thing I really disliked/hated about this tobacco is that when smoking it straight I had an aftertaste of cigarettes, and as an ex cigarette smoker that really turns me off. When mixed with Balkan Supreme I didn't get that taste much at all, perhaps a further blending with some Super Value Natural Cavendish which has no nicotine and no taste would thin it out a bit.

However, if you smoke cigarettes and are looking for a stronger nicotine punch with the pipe this may fit the bill. Also, it may be a good smoke to go out and join the cigarette smokers during their work break because you don't need to smoke this very long before you are ready to go back to work. But for me the pipe should smell and taste great, and give you a nicotine kick but not a slam in the stomach. They should rename this stuff to 'Sledge Hammer' or 'Grim Reefer'.

Very acrid tasting when first lit, this blend does begin to develop a flavor after the first few puffs. Unfortunately that flavor is one of a sweet soap. I have smoked this blend (rubbed) in a virgin cob, a meer and a briar mostly used with virginias. In each and every case the opening fruitiness quickly vanishes and I'm left with a soapy aftertaste. The nic does kick in on the second half of the bowl, and adding insult to injury left me with a sour stomach.

On the plus side it was easy to keep lit and burned very cool. A slow smoking blend.
