Ole Shenandoah Bootlegged

Ole Shenandoah Bootleged is a welcome addition to this series of wonderfully aromatic, bite free pipe tobaccos. Soft, nutty burleys are blended with a good portion of silky black cavendish and accented by the addition of some lemon Virginia. The superb aroma comes from a not too sweet blend of subtle fruit and warm confectionery favors- relax and enjoy!

Tin note is cherry cough medicine. Room note is cherry cough medicine. Taste is not far from cherry cough medicine.

Someday, the Robotrippers of this generation may find this pleasing, and will travel back to the days of yore, when they abused cough medicine and went on epic adventures, but I simply am disappointed. I really enjoy Barrel No. 76. I can't finish this tin of Bootlegged. I'll probably pass it on to somebody else.

The smell reminded me of one of those cheap fruit flavored cigars sold in gas stations and used for blunts. The smell is sooo artificial and chemically. It has a sugary cherry aroma, so that part of the description did match, any lemon topping inside would be of the cleaning product kind. This citrus was born in a factory and not an orchard.

The contents of small confetti bits was moist and springy, and would make a great pillow stuffing. It quickly burned to dust (yet to it's advertised credit) there was no bite. The gross smell just turned into a gross additive taste that lingered in the pipe after being tamped out.

This was an odd offering from from Lane, as while they never came across as high end, they always made products with a yummy sweetness. Akin to a Twinkie with no refinement, but has that guilty pleasure.

I can see why aromatics can get a bad reputation, when blends like these are lurking in our mists.
