    First welcome to the forum!! I have smoked the Super Value Black and Gold, it is ok. If you want a good aromatic at a fair price, I recommend 1Q, it is available at most retailers and B&M's.
    HAHA I beat Lawrence to the 1Q recommendation!!!

    I haven't tried the supervalu stuff but I would recommend any of the MacB seven seas from smokingpipes.com. You can get a pound of those for 22.69 last I checked

    Welcome to the forum, we don't get super value tobacco in the UK.

    Regards Ken,
    I am not young enough to know everything.

    The last time I tried Super Value I ended up boiling it to make an insect repellant ! It was literally soaked with PG. Left it out for a week and it was still a wet sticky mess. The only thing I've found to be worse is Mixture 79.

    *slaps forehead" $29 a pound?? So that is £18.50 for just over 450 grams. The cheapest pipe tobacco I have found online works out at $127 a pound! So that extra $100 all goes to the UK government!! I know I tend to go on about this but can you blame me when there is SO much difference in price between our two countries??

    withnail i'm sure it balances out somehow. in our screwed up economy at the grocery store you spend as much on a pound of red bell peppers as you do a pound of ground beef, and almost as much for a pound of tomatoes or a loaf of bread.

    Welcome to the forum Daniel, any questions you may have you'll definately be able to find the answer to here. Great bunch of members here. To stay on the SuperValue topic, if youre attracted to the price of the SuperValue, maybe you should consider a pound of the sterling bargain blend. Usually a bit aromatic and made with quality leaf. Same price, better tobacco.

    Hey Daniel, I saw in your other post that you said your sense of smell is about gone, so you have to rely on taste. Do you have some sinus issues, and have you checked with a doctor about what might be causing this? The reason I ask is the senses of taste and smell are closely linked, and if you can't smell much of anything, it's going to be hard to really taste anything but the strongest tobacco's, at least to be able to appreciate the nuances of most blends.

    Super Value to me is not worth the money I would get 1Q or RLP6 or something along those lines

    Welcome, Daniel. Never smoked Super Value.

    I've tried the Super Value Chocolate. The taste isn't bad but it kills my tongue. I don't know why but it does. Autumn Evening does, too, and it makes me sad. I'd recommend a Captain Black in bulk or any of the earlier mentioned ones. I've also tried Admiral's Choice Vanilla. It isn't bad at all. Welcome!

    I'd also recommend 1Q if you are looking for an economical aromatic blend. I've smoked some of the Super Value blends and didn't care for them at all, they burned hot and didn't have much flavor. It's been quite a while since I bought a pound of 1Q but I do remember it cost less than $20.

    Another good place for economical aromatics is Just For Him (justforhim.com). They have quite a selection. Their store is located in Springfield, MO.
