    half and half i always thought was ok. mixture 79 i could do without. step (or more) below either of those is middleton apple. might be the only one i ever threw out.

    as a long time cigarette smoker i can actually deal ok with borkum riff. not as a steady diet but on occasion. it's kinda like smoking a cig.

    War Horse Green - At first it seemed okay with that marshmallow thing going on but by day three it was a disgusting almost cheap fragrance waste of excellent leaf. The dark fired in their is choice, it's a shame because it was eventually disposed of. Others have mentioned the same thing.
    What I wanted to know is if it is indeed like a tobacco of Europe? as the description claims. Which one?

    It was 50 years ago, but Middleton's Cherry Blend stands out as one that didn't agree with me.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Skandinavik mixture yesterday. Not worst tasting tobacco because it had no taste but definitely a bad tobacco.

    My first ever pipe tobacco was Captain Black which I tossed out only because I didn't get any flavor from it. I was a big cigarette/cigar smoker way back then. So, I'm sure my sense of taste was out of whack.

    Other than that, I've never met a pipe tobacco that I didn't like. Some more than others. But, I tend to enjoy everything I smoke nowadays.

    Germain's Balkan Sobranie - It resembles the original about as much as I resemble a speedo model. I've tried on more than one occasion to smoke it but can't get past the first couple of puffs without feeling the need to barf. Calling it crap would be an insult to crap.

    Without a doubt the absolute worst tobacco I've ever smoked was SG Fire Dance. It is without a doubt absolute garbage. It takes like puke that was shit out of a rabies infected raccoon as it was dying by the side of the road after being drown in a port-a-potty.

    Hmmm. I actually like a number of these worst-tasting blends including 965, Iwan Ries Three Star Blue, Borkum Riff (Bourbon), Five Brothers, Royal Yacht, among others. I find Half&Half a little harsh for a good old OTC blend, but not awful. I tried Mixture No. 79 on Embers' advice, and it's kind of a good old aro, not first prize but not bad. My worst experience was with a Mac Barens Mixture of about six or seven tobaccos that was all bite and no taste. I tried to like it, but didn't. Over months. Finally discarded.

    Yeh, someone's favorite is always going to be someone's worst experience ever. Someone's worst pipe is going to be a pipe that someone else is in love with.

    Tastes are not universal, and it's why I think ranking blends or paying attention to rankings is worthless. It is like looking to see what is on the Top 40 to see what music they should like, when there are so many songs and bands than never make the list that are awesome, but just never got the commercial exposure, so many great artists that never got into a gallery, or great foods that never make the 5 star rankings.

    Even people with the same tastes as me will occasionally surprise me and like something that I detest, like the Sutliff Vinegar blends. I have actually been amazed that so many people weren't as disgusted by it as me. But, it just goes to show that tastes are very individualistic.

    Safe Harbor Flake from C&D.
    It was only on the market for a short while and reading the reports from TobbaccoReivews, you will understand why.

    I don't tolerate the blends with "kitchen spices" very well.

    That deduction is based on the very small sample group of blends I've had to give away.

    Two, so far. Angler's Dream (cinnamon) and Maltese Falcon (ginger).

    Lane BS-005. Hands down horrific. I assume it’s literal bull shit that has been burned 4 times then mixed with fresh buffalo shit and bagged once it stopped steaming. It got 000 on my 1-5 scale. And full disclosure I am a fan of many Lane blends.
    As said though, there are some others I found to be tasty that caused physical illness for other folks.
    Different strokes. I’m glad we currently have so many options!

    This is a tough question. I don't really think this is bad tobacco, but The Artful Codger made it sound so good that I HAD to try Velvet. To me, it smells like the paste we used in kindergarten.

    I would like the name of the treacle flavored cough medicine. For over a week, I have been sucking down grape, honey, and orange flavored blech... but treacle, that sounds delicious. Or, maybe just Stonehaven flavored cough medicine.

    Non-drowsy, ahhhh, nevermind.

    Maybe most Americans hate grape and berry flavored pipe tobaccos because of mainstream cough medicine, and Embers hates the really good tasting pipe tobacco because his mother gave him obscure cough medicine. JK

    I' with Craig -- I tried Velvet once. Actually, *half* of once. I left what was left of the stuff on a bench in the park. No idea what ever happened to it. And like John (jpm), that was 50 years agoi. If you remember something as bad for that long, it was really really badddd indeed.

    @ Bill Nichols wasn't Velvet the stuff that was once advertised for both Pipe and RYO cigarettes? I tried it once and it sort of reminded me of sucking the farts out of a Swan taste wise!

    Two, so far. Angler's Dream (cinnamon) and Maltese Falcon (ginger).

    Is that what the mysterious spice is in Maltese Falcon? I would have never have guessed that. I love MF but I could never quite put my finger on that mysterious spice... I’ll have to taste it again with ginger in mind.

    Condor thats the one War Horse Green is supposed to be condor; i've never tried condor.

    War Horse Green, tastes nothing like the almighty Condor. Don’t pass Condor up based on your dislike for War Horse. Although rumors are about that the new Polish Condor is not what it used to be, I’ve been gifted some Polish made Condor Plug and Long Cut and they tasted like the real deal to me but I am still happy that %99.99 of my stash was made in Ireland.

    As for my “no-go” tobacco blend (if you can even call it tobacco) is Molto Dolce. That stuff is nasty! If this is your favorite blend than ya may as well just take up vaping.

    because his mother gave him obscure cough medicine

    That was our grandmother. To her, even groundhog grease was a medicinal miracle. After a while, my siblings and all of the cousins had to be at death's door before we would dare to admit we were sick.

    I tried to bury Borkum Riff so deep in my memories, but I can still sense some cherry and whiskey aroma in my nose. Horrible

    So far, I'd have to say BriarWorks Pete's Beard Blend. It just didn't really work for me. Felt like the individual flavors didn't jive really well together. I have it in a jar and will likely let her sit there for a while and see if it's any different in a year or so.

    There is only one hated blend for me: 1792 Flake.

    I do not like Latakia, but I could still appreciate plenty about the various English blends I tried. But 1792 Flake was instant and undying hate on my part. But there’s that much more for the people who love it.

    As autumnfog says,

    Kentucky and latakia together doesn't work for me.

    That was an unfortunate deal-breaker on BlackHouse and 1882 Founder's, both of which I tried very hard to like.

    Also, the latest incarnations of BB1938 and London Mixture had to be gone from my sight, along with F&T Waterloo #2.
    McClelland's Syrian Full Balkan, to my grave disappointment, I found unsmokable.
    And Rainier Levant, Hood Canal and HH Latakia Flake.
    It's all subjective.

    In my fairly short pipe smoking journey, I've only tried two cheaper, OTC blends--Prince Albert and Carter Hall, and I liked them both (actually, I love PA.)

    Of all the others I've tried (25+, which covered a range of aromatics, English, and Virginia blends), some I liked more than others, and a few bothered my throat--but I don't know that I've found any of them objectively bad tasting.

    Peterson's Irish Whiskey. The shallow whiskeyey sweetness paired with the flavor of burned nuts. Not for me.
    And of course Grousemoor, but that one doesn't count as a tobacco.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Yeh, you know, I tried and rejected Grousemoor early on in my piping, but then in hearing Embers and a few others talking about it, I thought that I would give it a try again. I'm pretty sure that it's not tobacco, but some sort of sadistic herbal torturing device.

    Off the top of my head of the more well known brands, Middleton cherry, BR cherry (and their other offerings) , and paladen cherry are all tied for worst. Those 3 specially taste like someone took floor scrapings, poured chery cough syrup on them and splashed in a nice perfume /chemicals and called it a day. I dont know how anyone could enjoy them, but they must have a following?

    Mixture 79. There are plenty of blends I’ve tried that just weren’t my thing but the only one I’ve simply flat out disliked is Mixture 79.

    Fortunately there are other blends available.

    In the last five years the only thing that was bad enough to throw out was John Bull. I tried several times over a period of of about six months and each attempt was worse than the previous.
    I just couldn’t get over the metallic chemical taste.

    War Horse Green. Lots of people love it, and I want to love it, but dear god just no. To me it tastes like a half smoked cigarette that sat in a wet ashtray for a week, with a faint hint of stale bubblegum. Bleh.

    A lifetime ago when I was but an ignorant undergraduate I sampled Clan.

    I thought I had poured perfumed petrol on my tongue and set it alight.

    Hideous.

    And yet it remains one of the best selling blends in Europe. The Germans in particular are most fond of it.

    The worst smoke I recall off hand was from a pouch of Middleton Cherry blend. After I bought it, it was obvious that it had been sitting on the shelf for a very long time. Quite dried out. (It was bought from a smoke shop that specializes in cigarettes and had only a few pouches of OTC pipe tobacco.) - - I'm not a big aro smoker and maybe a fresh pouch is better. But, this had a metallic taste with no cherry at all. I might have gone ten puffs before calling it quits.

    To me Velvet smells like and tastes like cough syrup, the general nasty flavor that most have, but especially Robitussin.

    Mixture 79 doesn't bother me to much, but Sutliff Great Outdoors and H&H Burley Kake have a fake licorice flavor that is very off putting.

    Last is Granger, which I have complained about many times. When I was a kid I would sometimes suck on my T-shirt collar. It would get soaked in spit and had a very distinctive flavor, which Granger has and it grosses me out. It remains even if you let the Granger get crispy dry. Blech!

    The worst I ever tasted was Samuel Gawith Firedance flake. Absolutely disgusting, tasted like I puked in my mouth.

    Good to know Harris. I've been thinking about sampling Firedance, but now I think maybe not.

    workman, there plenty of guys who love it, you might be one of them. Maybe get a sample, just be prepared as it will ghost whatever you use.

    Condor, I think you may well be right on that! I laughed when I saw Alex's re sutliff spiced rum. I bought 2oz on the description & after one bowl was glad it was *all* I'd bought!

    Haven’t tried it twice, it’s in a jar but Kajun Kake freaked me out pretty successfully. I like Vapers but I dunno, it’s...different. Will try again. Other than that I’ve been lucky. I’ve enjoyed most things.

    Tobacco is a highly personal thing. My tastes and those of my dear friend Weezel would cause most people to hurl their lunch pales not because of the alleged strength but simply for our 'one dimensional taste' when it comes to stuff we like to smoke. Plenty of you guys have PM'd me over the years and I've happily 'turned you on' to the various plugs I smoke. Its not for everyone and my search for the ultimate 'get you totally out of your skull' plug will continue until they nail the lid down on my box. In the mean time enjoy what you like and enjoy taking the piss out of those blends you hate! Happy Labor Day.

    Def know what you mean. I'm not a plug man as such, but when I'm into my lat bombs most normal people wouldn't want to be around me. Except my wife. She loves the stuff, & I won't go into he details as to why. }:)

    Had to chime in!

    My tastes lean toward balkan and English tobaccos. I can tolerate and enjoy lat bombs. I've never met a Balkan I didn't find something positive to say about.

    Germain's Royal Jersey Original Latakia Mixture is the only pipe tobacco I just can't stand! I've tried it, cellared it, tried it again and cellared it again, many times over.

    The taste makes me wretch! It has a sour apple room note and the smoke is acrid nothingness. The only tobacco I can't get through.

    Middleton's Apple Pipe Tobacco. To paraphrase Ralph Wiggum, it tastes like burning.

    McConnell’s Glen Piper. No matter what pipe I used, no matter how dry it was, or how long I let it age, it was just bad, bad, bad. Yuck! Just my opinion; I'm sure there’s someone out there with a much better experience.

    I didn't particularly care for Amphora Virginia but it's not the intense dislike of some of the blends here. It's been sitting in a jar for about 6 months now so maybe I should give it another try.
