Does anyone have an idea on what topping they use on Warped The Red Hunt?

In the tin it smells of chocolate covered cherries to me and I very faintly taste it in the smoke.

I'm not a huge fan of tobaccos with toppings but this is not bad.

I think it would be better without the topping though.

I recently picked up a tin. It’s fantastic!! I didn’t notice any toppings. I will be buying more. It reminds me of HH Arcadian (my favorite,) but sweet and dry. If that makes sense.

I think it has a topping. We all know what raw untopped C&D tobaccos taste like, and this definitely has something on it. I'll try to review it if I can catch a break during this holiday. Let a little dry out completely then smoke it and see what you think.

Wow interesting! If there is no topping maybe my sniffer is broken :ROFLMAO:. I could swear though it almost smells like a boozy chocolate covered cherry.
I haven’t tried this one yet, but if there is no topping, my guess would be you’re probably tasting the Perique. It can be pretty fruity in some blends, so maybe that’s it? ?‍♂️
Sounds like I need to pick up a tin of this one. I like Kings Stride and Cloud Hopper.

It's really good and Until the End is a really good one also. If there is no topping (which sounds like the consensus) the blender is amazing to get that kind of tin note and flavor out of a straight tobacco blend.

Sounds good. I look forward to hearing it ?

First time I smoke The Red Hunt. Not bad but it's definitely smells and tastes like a flavored tobacco. It leaves a ghost in the pipe like a flavored tobacco. If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

Rum, vanilla, maple syrup?

No, not a consensus.

TRH seems heavily topped to me also. It’s to the point that I won’t likely finish my tin. I’ve been airing it out in a jar. But I don’t think it’s going to settle down.

I haven't smoked any of this in a while but I do have quite a bit aging in the cellar. I'm trying to get through some of what I already have open before I open anything else. I do need to revisit some aged 🙂

After falling in love with Kings Stride I was a little disappointed in the Red Hunt. Just not to my tastes. I’m a newer pipe smoker but it seems to have a very heavy boozy topping to me.

I gave it a couple months rest, going to revisit it soon.
