    Has anyone smoked, Sleepy Hollow tobacco from Strauss tobacco company. As you can guess, it only comes out this time of year. It's priced around 4.35 an oz. Seems like it has good reviews. Debating on supporting the local B&M and buying a few oz's.

    Never heard of the tobacco, but I've been to Washington Irving's Sunnyside.

    I go to Strauss every other month or so..
    I'm not much into aromatics but they have a huge selection of store blended bulks.
    I typically make the short road trip to enjoy their lounge, a cigar or two, and to pick up some of their bulk Stokkebye RYO. I really like the Danish Import and Amsterdam Shag.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    I've never tried it, but many of my YouTube friends smoke it and really enjoy it. I've only heard good reviews on it.

    That's great to hear, I had heard that they weren't going to make anymore because of the FDA insanity.

    I will say the tin note is incredible on this stuff. They never seem to match the room but man...almost hate to light it!

    I jumped in and ordered 4oz. 4.15 a oz. Shipped it was right at $24. They give discounts as you buy more. I think they said over 4oz 10%, over 8oz 15%, and over 16 oz. 20%. Shipping is a flat $9.

    It smells like a pumkin and spice candle in the bag.

    Similar to Bluegrassbrian, I visit Strauss roughly 6-7 times per year but mainly do mail order from them. Sleepy Hollow is a very enjoyable aromatic. Not overly complex but has a wonderful aroma. If you're looking for something you can smoke in public or around others who may not be pipe smokers it is certainly a win. I'd say give it a go. Cheers!

    All I get is their Facebook page and a link to http://www.e-straus.com/index.html

    Do they have any online page that I can order from?

    Be that as it may, it probably never was...

    They were sold out last weekend but I was told they'd have more this week.

    They're happy to take orders by phone.

    Just ordered 12 ounces. Was assured more was on the way. As far as FDA, they said things were still in the air, and Straus is trying to fly under the radar with Sleepy Hollow.

    Been smoking this all week. While you can pick up hay from the Virginia on the retrohale, the pumpkin and cinnamon are the stars here. A few obligatory relights, and does leave moisture in the bowl, but is a great smoke. Shines in a cob, but also is welcome in a briar. Puffed hard a few times to see if it would bite, as it is a very wet aro, but not even the slightest burn. Have to order more!

    I have about 10oz of Sleepy Hollow I picked up last year. Guess it's time to break it out.

    It's a great tobacco and worth the price! Stock for the year, they run out fast!

    I read a review that suggested that Sutliff Pumpkin Spice is a better Sleepy Hollow. YMMV. One of the reviewers went as far as to say it is the main component of Sleepy Hollow. In any case, I surely do not know. SP has all of their Sutliff blends 20% off so it might be worth a few ounces to check it out.

    I am not sure if you can really dry this stuff out... ever lol. I forgot I left 1 or 2 pipefull's out for 2 days and was still sticky. Did seem to lose a bit of its uniqueness however...

    Pumpkin, I don't like in tobacco or beer. But many do, in both.
