Reading reviews about what are seen as foul smelling and tasting tobaccos has made me curious. Any smoke that made you gag and regret, please share here. I'd kinda like to take a tour of the nasty.

Most definitely any Lakeland blend such as Ennerdale. Might just as well try smoking a urinal cake.

Nothing directly gross. I had a really nice square tin of Peterson holiday aromatic, an elegant blend in a beautifully decorated tin, with fabulous room note -- cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and pine, or some really holiday array of flavors. But boy that stuff burnt like blazes. Whoo-eee. Then I'd go to brush my teeth with peppermint toothpaste, and I'd climb the bathroom mirror. That started my turn toward the glories of non-aromatic blends. Please.

I keep wanting to try Mixture 79 as soon as I find someplace that will sell me 2g of it.

It didn't make me gag, but it is still the nastiest tobacco I've tried.
In all fairness when Hawke sent the sample.....he warned me.

Mc Barren Cherry choice. Not close to urinal cake or gagging, but I really didnt like it at all. It didn't even leave a nice room note.

Well crap defargin, I just order some Rum Flake to try. Maybe it will agree with me...

My worst was Captain Bob's Blend. The grape flavor just turned me off so much, I don't know if I can give it another chance.

I read the description, that was enough for me.

Lakeland and Urinal cake. Check.
There are degrees of Lakeland...You have your light Lakeland, like Louisiana Flake. Then the hardcore Lakeland, like Dan's Liberty, (gagged me) and Ennerdale (almost another gag).

I am surprised no one mentioned the title of this....
"Here... Smell My Finger" made me both laugh, and get a little grossed out. Well done Nate.

Condor, Condor, and....Condor. Anyone who can smoke that stuff and enjoy it will be on the list to receive some Mixture 79 dottle.

I very rarely smoke an aromatic, but the description on that blend was also enough to make me gag. Sounds like a mixture of Welch's grape juice, Hawaiian Punch and Kool-Aid.

Most of the very strong tobaccos that I have tried, e.g. XX Twist, Brown Happy Bogie, etc. taste pretty nasty to me.
