    What tobacco has the biggest nic hit for you? I've smoked Peterson's Irish Flake and Dunhill's Night Cap and neither one do a thing to me as far as nicotine but they almost floor most smokers. At the same time, I've smoked tobaccos that threatened to sit me down that had no effect on others. Just curious how other people react to tobacco/nicotine

    LOL. Always a great topic for discussion mate. I am not affected by nic. X cig smoker for 30 yrs and just gave em up a yr ago. Baccy's reputed to be great nic hits; 1792 Flake, 5 Brothers, Dark Birdseye, Kendal Kentucky, Hal O The Wind, Dunhill Nitecap, and the list goes on and on.

    One of my favorite bowls of tobacco is: Pinch of Dark Birdseye, pinch of 1792, pinch of Kendal Kentucky, repeat process until bowl is full.

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    Never smoked before the pipe, but I do not get a nic-hit. Apparently university flake is pretty strong, but I did not feel it at all.

    I don't think I've ever gotten a nic hit from pipe tobacco. I've gotten it from cigars and ciggs though

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    I get the hic-cups with any powerful nicotine blend. One such blend that I do love but have great respect for is C&D's Riverboat Gambler. Be careful to tie your pants legs shut! But, if sipped, it is a great blend for sure. Also, it is a great mixer as well. Just don't smoke it too far into the heal or you will get the hic-cups!

    +1 on this.
    Also an ex cigarette smoker (though less time than Mr. Fisher here) and I loaded that stuff in one of my larger pipes thinking I was invincible having built up a resistance. Half way through I found out that no...I'm not. Head swimming and all that...just let my head fall back in my chair, put the pipe down, and let it wash over me for a while. Fantastic taste on that stuff and I'd happily go back to it. Just a smaller pipe and a slower sipping.

    Blends that have kicked me in the gut with Viamin-N?
    Two Friends English Chocolate (I know. By all rights, it shouldn't have, but it did. I still love it though.)
    GL Pease Jack Knife Plug
    SG 1792 Flake (I really love the flavor in this one but it's a day-long smoke for me with lots of DGT'ing throughout)
    G&H Rum Twist & Sweet Maple (both ropes, both full-strength)
    I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I really remember.

    Triple Play is pretty strong and has given me some light headedness on occasion. Definitely have to eat before and have learned that the consumption of sugar before/during the smoke eliminates the problem. I'm no doctor but I've heard that large amounts of nic cause your blood sugar to drop which is why one gets nic related problems. Anecdotally it's worked for me.

    Petersons Irish Flake

    1792 Flake.....only smoked a couple of times, don't mind the strength, just don't like the flavor.

    Haddo's Delight

    Escudo

    Nightcap

    I still smoke cancer sticks so pipe tobacco doesn't bother me at all. I am down from 1.5 packs a day to about 7. Soon hope to be cig free.

    Just ordered an ounce and will have it tomorrow, I'm hoping I get that full bodied Vitamin "N" hit for the evening smoke, also have some cake coming that I hope I get by Christmas

    No pipe tobacco has ever approached some of the cigar nic-hit's that I have gotten.

    I feel the nic in some pipe tobacco blends, but nothing to write home about...and I have never been a cigarette smoker in the past, occasional cigar smoker though.

    95% of the time nothing happens. I smoke the high nic blends before bed. Every once in awhile I get hiccups and gulp water quickly to stop them. When I got gluttonous twice(smoked two bowls back to back in a huge Upshall) I got woosy and nauseous but felt fine after stopping.

    I've smoked tobaccos that threatened to sit me down that had no effect on others.

    This is exactly the problem. Some people can handle the nicotine and others can't.

    Have you eaten? How much did you smoke? Did you inhale?

    Personally my sensitivity to nicotine is a constant challenge for me. For example, I love Irish Flake, but if I smoke too much at once I'll regret having picked up the pipe that day.

    I've been smoking Lane Crown Achievement and Hearth & Home "Black House." Especially the Black House: If I smoke it a little too fast, it'll make me feel a bit woozy and make my stomach hurt. (I smoked cigarettes for 27 years.)

    I've been smoking ciggys for 15 years now so i'm used to nicotine (although not inmune).
    Every single time i let my guard down and inhale a puff off Five Brothers is like getting hit in the head with a cartoon mallet within 10 seconds of inhaling.

    Peterson Irish Flake and Dunhill Royal Yact. Can't finish even a small bowl of either without making my head spin.

    Warrior Plug, good amount of nic when still wet/moist. Eventhough I smoked ciggs for years.

    This is getting to be a good list of vit-N tobaccos. Got me wanting to try some of them. So I'm going back and make a list.

    Try C&D Exclusive. It's 50% Perique.

    C&D Old Joe Krantz is good too.

    Life is good. But it's better with a pipe.

    I've been a smoker for years and I inhale as well and the only tobacco that ever gave me pause was a rope that Morton had me try on a smoke night. First time I ever have my lips start feeling numb..... it was wonderful. lol

    Briar Fox and Irish Flake when I first began smoking them.

    Every once in a while I'll be surprised by a tobacco I've smoked for months with no hint of a nicotine hit - and then one day I get up from smoking and I'm a bit wobbly on my feet.

    One not listed yet,
    Robert McConnell Latakia Flake

    - it's not really a Lat tasting blend, more St. Brunolike almost,
    as well as being scrumptiously delicious, it gives a gloriously satisfying N hit.

    I've recently made comparisons with 3 C&D blends that have ratings as strong in the nic dept.
    Old Joe Krantz, Billy Budd, and Big n Burley.
    Of the 3, I find the Big 'n Burley to have the most serious nic hit and also an overall cigar like quality.

    G&H Rum Twist snuck up on me once and really put me out of condition for a day. Nicotine never bothered me before... I was a long time cigarette smoker. Finally gave them up at the end of last February. Since then, my nicotine shield has dropped a bit

    A Brazilian rope, Arapiraca Castanho Super Forte (aka Brown Super Strong) from the Arapiraca Tobacconist at the Mercado Central in Belo Horizonte, Brazil knocked me out - no head spinning, hiccups, nausea or palpitations, just an overwhelming, irresistible need to sleep. "Lights out" for an hour in the middle of the day. And I have a very high nicotine tolerance. I did enjoy the smoke though. Too bad that it is not available outside of Brazil.

    +1 for Tambolaka, Five Brothers, D&R Picayune, Cotton Boll, & Haddo's Delight (& most of the others listed, though I have not tried Condor or Warrior Plug)

    Well, several of the blends listed here have had me whimpering like a nic wuss: Old Joe Krantz, Big N' Burley, Billy Budd, PPP and Jack Knife Plug.

    But 1792 Flake gave me an out-of-body experience. I was in my outdoor hammock. Just kicked back on a beautiful afternoon and began puffing without any thought of slowing down. Afterall, I had taken on some pretty big burleys and was still standing.

    The Flake beat me like a bad bet. I got the sweats, the hic cups, nausea, then hurled and hurled some more. I went to bed. After I arose from the apparent dead, I hurled again.

    I have never smoked that blend again. Nor will I ever.

    I've smoked a pipe, never cigarettes, for almost 50 years. I thought I could handle anything. Goes to show that sometimes you bite off more than you can smoke.

    I smoke cigars and use nasal snuff, so from my perspective the only pipe tobacco that contains any nicotine is Tambolaka

    I tell ya what, sometimes I feel the Vitamin N and other times with the same tobacco I don't. Another thing is there is a little difference in the type of feeling a particular nicotine head swim is brought on by a blend. Different batches of the same blend can do this too. Lately the green bag Condor has been the tobacco that has delivered the most pleasant experience. Some blends make me feel bad and others quite nice. At times I can get the Nic blast from a milder tobacco like Carter Hall or PS Lux Twist though. I cant figure it out specifically.

    Anyone else like this?

    Are those Tobacco Brownies?
