Plantation Evening

Worst tobacco I ever smoked.  I'm not even sure this is tobacco.  It looks, smells, and tastes like what I would Imagine cut up newspaper and grocery bags would smell and taste like, if one were to shred such things and smoke them in a pipe.  This stuff is AWFUL and should be avoided completely.

Review by smokey strodtman

One of my favorite medium English blends

What a fabulous blend this is! Craig Tarler has hit a perfect balance between the Latakia, Perique, Turkish, and Virginias. The smoke is wonderfully complex, with the sweetness of the Virginias, the smokiness of the Latakia, the creaminess of the Turkish, and the spicyness of the Perique all having a chance to shine through. We've all heard those hypothetical "what tobaccos would you want with you on a desert island" questions. If I was only allowed four tobaccos, this would be one of them. Five BIG stars!
