G. L. Pease JackKnife Plug

(3.43)
JackKnife Plug: dark-fired Kentucky leaf and ripe red Virginia tobaccos, with their deep, earthy flavors, are layered on a central core of golden flue cured for a hint of bright sweetness, then pressed and matured in cakes, and finally cut into 2 ounce blocks. Slice it thick and rub it out for a ribbon cut, thin for a shag, or chop it into cubes. The choice is yours.
Notes: The first blend in the New World Series - JackKnife Plug was introduced in January, 2011. From GL Pease: This one has been a long time coming. I’ve had more requests than I can count to make a plug, and to make some stronger blends. There’s something about playing with the tobacco, cutting it, rubbing it out, preparing it for smoking, that connects us more closely with the whole process. A plug like this can be sliced thick or thin, so the smoker gains complete control over the way it will pack and burn. It’s quite rewarding. My favorite approach with JackKnife has been to slice it very thin, about 1/32″, and rub it completely into a fine shag. Filling the pipe carefully, not packing too tightly, results in a wonderful, cool, effortless smoke, and the fine cut seems to enhance the sweetness of the Virginias and bring out the subtle, natural perfume of the dark fired Kentucky leaf.

Holy moly this has a lot of nicotine. And I smoke haunted bookshop and old Joe Krantz all day long. This does not have anywhere near as much flavor as I expected. Old Dark Fired is the only other Kentucky blend I have smoked, and this tastes nothing like it. The Virginias are too young, and at these prices I shouldn't have to age this. But it shows some real potential. I guess I recommend this. It is definitely a smooth smoke. Mostly somewhat grassy notes with a slight nutty spiciness. Two and a half stars
