Finished a second tin of this and just opened a third. WOW!!! If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and grab a tin of this (or a hundred). This stuff is outstanding! Imagine a blend that gives you the taste of a great Virginia flake perfectly married to a robust and earthy yet smooth burley. Add just a hint of smokiness and a hint of leather and you'll get somewhat of an idea of how good this blend is! It lit easy with a wonderful bloom after the charring light and burned all the way down to a soft, white, powdery ash.
This is the kind of blend that just makes me fall in love with the pipe all over again.
(Not really a review per se. Just kinda thinking out loud.) :D

I have been wanting some. How is the nicotine for you? Some say very strong.

I have 2 tins cellared and a half tin opened. I agree, great smoke! I have a few flakes to the owner of my local B&M and when he smelled the tin he said, 'now this is what pipe tobacco should smell like!' Hopefully he starts carrying it in the store!
@dhizzy- I didn't think the N was too bad at all. PM me your address and I'll put a few flakes in the mail box for you if you can't make it up December 1st

Unfortunately I cannot say. I seem to be nicotine resistant times ten. I've smoked many blends that were advertised as being heavy in vitamin N and never seem to notice it. Hopefully someone else can comment on the nicotine part. :)
I hope that you're stocked up on this stuff after that review.
I'm gonna go down to the local B&M and clean him out later today! It's all mine!!! Muhahahahahaha :twisted:

Hawk, don't count me out yet! I may be able to make it. No need to bother with sending me some. I will just get it when we meet up. That's a heck of an offer though, thanks. If I can't make it, I'll take you up on it and throw you something in return.

This blend is strong both in flavor and nicotine.

Juvat270 said it - it's outstanding.
Some tobaccos like a certain pipe, but this does equally well in a briar, a Kirsten or a cob. It's especially good with a cup of strong coffee in the morning. I like this one best rubbed out.

Hopefully it'll become more available in the next year or so.
I hope so too! I'm all for shopping at the local B&M and mine has a ton of it in-stock, but mine sells it for $17.95 per tin vs. $10.95 online. Ouch!!
