This Dark Fired Tobacco goes to the top of my list as far as this thing goes. When I got my sample and reading some of the Reviews I was kind of prepared Not to like it. Well. Surprise! This cool smoking blend is delicious with its herbaceous smoky flavor. The coins are fun and easy to pack.

Recently I have been smoking more blends with Dark Fired Tobacco - some of my Favorites are HH Old Dark Fired Flake, D&R Ryeback and now this one.

Newminster has done a great job at providing folks with fine tobacco at a great price. Superior Round Slices are no exception. They are flavorful little coins! They are thinly sliced, making them easy to rub out and pack. My order was a bit too dry, so I threw a pouch button in the jar overnight and it brought them up to the right moisture level. After rubbing out a few of the coins and packing them in a Peterson 999, I charred it. The sweetness of the VA's was there. Boom. No time wasted. After the flame catches on, you'll get that dark, heavy flavor from the Kentucky with a nuttiness that really rounds out the entire experience. I am aging some right now to see how much better it gets with time. For right now, they're a damn fine smoke that is simply hard to beat for the price.

Bag note is sweet a bit musty some light citrus and tartness. Beautiful coins. I have tried both rubbing it out and folding the coins. It smoked much better just folding the coins and putting them directly into the pipe. This blend was much milder than I expected from Kentucky, Virginia its right at the medium mark. this is a bit more sweet than tart with a bit of spiciness. Great flavors of molasses and pure tobaccos. Even when puffing hard its stays smooth. I find it burns to more of a charcoal ash (not white) and requires a bit of tamping or dumping the charcoal at the midway point but its well worth the effort. Its very close in flavor to Dark Twist at a fraction of the cost and the quality very good. I will be stocking up on this as I am sure it will age very well. Nic hit is mild to medium.

My first reaction was, this must be a MacBaren product. Came here to get the lowdown and laughed to see I was on the same wavelength as many of my cohorts. Get a strong resemblance to MB Scottish mixture.
