Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant

The smooth, lightly sugary black cavendish seems to be unsweetened since I detected no vanilla. The Virginia is very mildly grassy sweet, and the burley offers a light essence of toasted nuts and molasses. The rum is decent and a little creamy, though it gets just a little syrupy near the finish. Has little nicotine. Burns fairly smooth at a moderate pace, though it may need some dry time. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs some relights. It's okay for an all day "go about your business" smoke if you dry it a tad.

Tinder Box Rum Runner; is a Burley, Virginia, with a touch of Black Cavendish blend; topped with Rum. Broken Flake cut, it packs well, lights well, and burns well to the bottom of the bowl. It is a cut above the Drug Store/Supermarket styles of pipe tobacco; but not as "smooth & creamy" as CupOJoes #3 Chuchunaa. The Rum is not overpowering as sniffed in the poly-pouch, nor as it is smoked. A three star blend that can be smoked all day

This tobacco really appealed to me when I first tried it, but after a few weeks of giving it a go, it lost all appeal. I have done since tried other rum mixtures, and I think the blend lost steam with me because it was not very complex. It was a bit sweet, mildly aromatic, and pretty much bland. It had great potential, but never seemed to deliver the knockout punch. It would be good for the beginner, but after trying other tobaccos from the same genre, most would probably say, "yeah...tried it, but.........."

Pipe Used: All types...briar, cob, meers, clays

Age When Smoked: Fresh out of the store jar(whatever that means)
