Smoker's Pride Rich Taste

Rich Taste is a smooth blend of flue cured and air cured tobaccos, with real tobacco taste but a gentle enough flavor to smoke all day. It also makes a very good blending tobacco.

Smoker's Pride - Rich Taste.

I bought this from an eBay dealer for one reason, and one reason only: £5.27 with free shipping from the U.S.A.........Bargain! That is, unless it's rank!

It presents itself as medium size, quite dry, light and medium brown, ribbons. The moisture makes it simple to ignite.

And then it gives a 'no nonsense' smoke. The Burley outweighs the Virginia, by a mile, having a rough, nutty, somewhat aggressive nature; it isn't an over molasses-sweet Burley, but more of a 'rough and ready' one! The Virginia only gives a speck of flavour, it needs more of a deliberate tasting. Although the hydration increases the ease of igniting, it makes it burn warm and fast.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: pleasant to tolerable.

Was it a bargain? It would do in an emergency, but wouldn't make it into my rotation. Two Stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Pipe Used: Savinelli 320
