Notes: Admiral's Choice pipe tobaccos are manufactured by Dream Castle Tobacco Company, a division of Sutliff Tobacco Company. and are now the exclusive online and catalog retailer of these blends, though they can be found in retail outlets also.

Mild Mild Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Attractive and eye catching label, good flavor and I didn't catch a bite. A old-fashion smoke that doesn't demand much, just cool burning. Soft vevelty clouds of smoke. Starts out sweet then tapers off. A slight citrus note throughout then the sweetness appears every now and then. Very noticeable in a cob. I can definitely taste the virginias (slight vinegar taste which doesn't ruin or dominate the flavor) and a hint of Turkish. Just an occasional tamper is all that's needed. I'm suprised by this budget blend, it's fine quality leaf for a drug store brand. Reminds one of Kentucky Club's Continental Blend w/o the heavy coconut flavor. As well as Alexander Bridge. Room note is a cross between maple, coffee and toasted coconut--well balanced overall. Far better than Blender's Gold NC. It's a smoke this while doing something else blend. Not overly cased and good cut. I think some of the less favorable reviews might be by those who lean more on the aromatic side. Non-aromatics may be new to the tongue. I found a good cleaning of the pipe and a little airing out is all that's required to reap the benefits from ACNC. This a great one for blending or seasoning your pipe with. One final thought, any blend you purchase in a tobacco shop is purchased over the counter. So the idea that OTC blends are inferior is only half true. I found great blends in a drug store and sometimes I found bad blends that I bought through the internet. If you find a blend that's economical and you like it then stick with it. Tins are better overall for quality and moisture. Bulk bags are a toss up and are prone to overcasing and contain more bite if not allowed to air out. Vanilla and Cherry bulks tend to be the worst offenders.

Only tobacco I've ever tossed in the trash can . I wouldn't even gives this stuff away to a enemy. It was so wet from being soaked in PG i couldn't even smoke it. Let it sit out for days and it would not dry. Total garbage. Don't waste your money.

Great for blending. Not so good alone. Blended it with Peter Stokkeby's Black Dansk, very good. Especially if you jar it and let it set for about a month.

This stuff is HORRIBLE by itself. I picked it up whenever CVS Pharmacies were liquidating their tobacco products. It was $5 for 8 oz, so I thought I'd pick some up. I mean, how bad could it be? Well, it tastes and smells like burning trash...I couldn't stomach a whole bowl. I jarred it up, and I have yet to open it. I think I'll end up mixing it with other tobaccos as a filler. There's just no way I can enjoy it by itself.
