Alamo pipe tobacco brings to you the combination of mocha and nougat. The can note could be its own air freshener. Smoking this blend is cool and creamy.

A very pleasant smoke, my wife was not as wild about the room note as some others that I smoke. Burned to the bottom with a white ash. I really like the aftertaste. The mocha stands out. I will buy it again, to smoke when I am not around my wife

Mild to Medium Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The unsweetened black cavendish offers some brown sugar as the main component. The nutty, earthy burley is a condiment. The mild mocha is the dominant topping. The nougat has a little richness that the mocha lacks, and both work together seamlessly. The strength level is a step past mild, while the taste falls a hai short of mild to medium. Has a very light nic-hit. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with smooth, lightly creamy, sweet taste that weakens a little in the last third of the experience, and you’ll notice the burley more then. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste, and is an all day smoke, though it suffers from lacks depth. Two and a half stars.

Not a bad tobacco, not outstanding. The taste was not very strong, but there was a hint of caramel. Smoked easily without relighting. Bought it as part of a 4 tin sampler set, so the price was very low, making this tobacco a good value.

Tin was opened months ago. I think a little drying time has helped. Smoked and reviewed on March 6, 2015.

Very mild cool burning tobacco but not on a par with Trout Stream. Cut consists of rather large flakes. Great price and really attractive can.

Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

This is my third Brigadier Black blend that I'm reviewing. After the disappointing Waterloo and the excellent Bull Run, Alamo stands somewhere in the middle, albeit closer to Bull Run.

Instead of some of the fruit notes that I got with Bull Run, Alamo shows more of honey and light nutty flavors coming out of the nougat, also light cocoa notes. It's only a little sweet, with warmer notes rather than summery fruits. You could get some vanilla, but I think that it's mostly the honey that plays the main role. However, I can see someone gets a little bored of this if this is all you smoke. Nothing really stands out as interesting enough to get me to want more of this.

The tobacco is easy to pack and smoke, with the flavor remaining consistent throughout the bowl. Good moisture out of the pouch, smokes in moderate pace with absolutely no tongue bite. This is a nice all-day smoke for those who prefer the warmer notes over Bull Run's sweet fruits.

Mild in body and strength, well balanced although I would like a bit more of honey coming out.

Bull Run remains my favorite out of this series, but Alamo is very nice as well. Two and a half stars, rounding up to three.
