Warhorse, last sold in the UK in the early 1980’s, is a robust “everyman’s” pipe tobacco, consisting of earthy, hearty Burley, ripe red Virginias, a good share of smoky, spicy dark-fired Kentucky and a bit of Perique for a hint of sweetness. It has a very light top-note that helps to smooth out the flavor. This is a bold smoke, best enjoyed after a nice meal with a nice libation.
I was looking forward to trying these but if they're going to be a pain in the ass to acquire there are others easily obtainable. Don't get me wrong, the reviews sound great and I want to try it but there are enough unobtainable tins out there. The Warhorse Plug may be a different story though.I would suggest getting your John Cotton's orders in ASAP, however, as there will be fewer tins available at first than expected.
