    I like to smoke this straight,or blended with another
    Burley tobacco.Better if dried out for a day,or two.
    The Tonka bean flavor may be new to many smokers,but rest assured, this not an aromatic tobacco.Like the other reviewers have stated,this has some nicotine about it,so try it after a full dinner,or breakfast,as the case may be,and in a small bowl,or blended with a weaker tobacco.I like mine mixed in 1 to 4 with Amphora Original,or one of Peretti’s burley tobaccos.I don’t smoke for the nicotine so much as for the flavor.For me,the nicotine is something that must be managed according to your threshold limits..The strength of the flavor can be adjusted.,and I suggest that my fellow smokers try this 1792,if you are ready to venture up into the realms of stronger tobacco,just take it easy,a bit at a time,my brothers and sisters of the pipe…………Carl.

    I liked this tobacco from the first few sipps. It definitely needs some drying as even drying it in a pan on low heat until it’s somewhat dry leaves parts of it very soggy but as a nicotine lover this is absolutely not nearly as strong as some make it sound to be in other reviews I’ve read and it give me a nice nicotine fix without inhaling its smoke.

    I’ve heard some find its taste rather odd due to the Tonquin bean used in it but I absolutely love it, the taste seems very strong but very subtle at the same time.

    I have not smoked many tobaccos but out of a few great aromatics, virginias, english/latakia and vergina perike I’ve tried this is so far one of my favorites as I was seeking nicotine in pipe smoking.

    When I first tried this tobacco I was fairly sure I hated it. It had such a unique flavor and it caught me by surprise. I suppose “barnyard” would be the best way to describe it. After I had a few more bowls and actually had a chance to taste the remarkable flavors it started to grow on me more and more. It has a nice strong tobacco flavor with hints of cocoa and hay. It now has a place in my regular rotation when I am looking for something a little stronger. A+ tobacco; I highly recommend it.

    Very much like Peterson Irish Flake. Strong and powerful mixture, make sure you prep yourself for this one. It’s over the top for me but hey, you might like it.
