Medium to Strong Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

I bought 2 pounds of this on sale from Thompson because often I am really cheap. It is not quite a cigarette cut so it packs and smokes fine in a cob. Taste is an OK non-aromatic Burley blend. Not a good one but not bad. The down side for me is that it gives me serious briar breath. I cant blend that away by mixing with another tobacco. I know that can vary from person to person but it keeps me from rating it as a 2

Pipe Used: cob

Age When Smoked: fresh then aged 12 months same result

Purchased From: Thompson

I picked this up because it was the only pipe tobacco I could find at the only store that was open at the time. It was very cheap, and I figured I'd give it a try. The tobacco had almost no noticeable flavor to it when I originally smoked it. I got fairly bad tongue bite, and it felt like I was just smoking hot air. This tobacco was not necesarilly horrible, it just didn't have anything going for it. So, I put it on the shelf, and ignored it for nearly a year. When I came back to it to try, I noticed I had not completely sealed the bag up, and the tobacco had consequentially dried to a crisp. I decided to smoke it anyway, and it seemed fine to me. Again, no flavor or taste. It took me 3 weeks of smoking this exclusively to start picking up on the slight vanilla flavoring in it. About the only people I would recommend this tobacco to are 1) People who genuinely cannot afford tobacco, and are looking for the best bang-for-buck option, and 2) People who wish to inhale the tobacco through their pipe to get a nicotine hit.

I have started to use this Blend. I have also tried the blue. I Roll my own and this works very well. (using a spoon feed electric). It burns a little slower than a production cigarettes and there is a sorta sweet taste to the tobacco. There was a slight bite the first time I tried it but that pretty much passed.

I do find it rolls better when a little dryer but then i place the cigarettes in a humidor and add a touch of water and the tobacco comes back to life. It seems to need the moisture to give off a pleasant odor and taste.

This isn't an expensive tobacco and I wouldn't compare it to them. It just works well and brings down cigarette cost to a buck a pack. I am finding I don't like the taste of production cigarette any more.
