    Does anyone know if there is a blend with a hint of pine taste?

    I get hints of smoked pine in Latakia mixtures but nothing comes to mind of a pine flavored blend.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd be wary of pine flavoring. I'm good with strong non-flavored tobacco, but have had a bad experience or two with so-called holiday blends with non-tobacco flavorings meant to suggest holiday spirits -- cinnamon, pine, etc. Whatever the flavorings actually contain, they bite me like junkyard dogs. Maybe it's just me. Buy a small quantity and do a trial run; it may be great for you. On the other hand, if Latakia has a slight pine-reminiscent scent, that is really tobacco, I think that would be fine. I'm not a Lat hound, but I enjoy a number of Lat blends.

    It's not pine-flavored, but White Knight has a big pine taste after the first half of the bowl.

    I'd be interested in this, too. I tried P&C Pine Grove and it's not pine flavored at all, despite what TR reviews say (probably the same people who claim to taste mushroom in Shortcut to Mushrooms - the power of suggestion). There some nice piney snuffs, though.

    You want to taste pine? Go to a pine tree in the late summer. Grab some dried pine needles and roll it in a brown paper bag and smoke it like a cigarette. You will taste pine. Yes me and a buddy did this when we were around 13-14 when we ran out of cigarettes. 1 drag and I was choking my guts out.

    Spray some tobacco with gin and let it dry.

    Blends like true bird's eye blends will occasionally deliver a burst of pine flavor. I assume that it's because those blends contain cross sections of the rib where more of the residual sap lies.

    Calumé, if you can find it....Has an evergreen topping, very interesting. Not sure it's made anymore.

    It's funny you should ask this. When I smoke St. Bruno I interpret part of the flavor as "sweet pine" and always have. I've never heard or seen anyway else mention this, so it might be my faulty receptors. I'm usually drinking some bourbon when I'm smoking SB, so that might have something to do with it.

    You could always get some Greek Retsina wine to flavor your tobacco. They use pine resin in fermenting the wine.

    In my opinion Retsina is an acquired taste, and not one I wish to acquire. Oof. If you enjoy it, have at it. Yup, that pine resin all right.

    Might just jar a blend with a pine cone for 6 months and see what happens.

    I have a large bottle of food grade pine essential oil. I have yet to try my amended tobacco. The smell is very subtle.

    Weird how this works as I’ve never thought of pine when smoking St. Bruno but now that ya mention it, I can totally see what you’re talking about. I love the stuff, it’s very complex so it serves as a sit down and contemplate smoke but it also works as a “honey do” smoke.
