It's wet, and you'd better dry it some or you'll have too much wetness in your bowl. The buttered rum topping isn't deep, but it does tone down the tobacco to some extent. You can also taste the nutty, lightly sharp burley and a little of the grassy, citrusy Virginia cavendish. Dry it first, and you'll have a pleasant all day smoke, though it does lose a little flavor toward the finish. Has little nicotine. Won't bite or get harsh. Needs a few relights, and leaves moisture in the bowl. Has a decent after taste and room note.
Very pleasing tobacco, with no bite, Fully cased and top flavored. I would like to add a note that this brand has moved from Rite Aid and is now sold at Iwan Ries out of Chicago. Ries has a lot of excellent tobacco's as well. You can visit there site here http://www.iwanries.com. Just found out that they are now selling all Vintage Flavors.
I saw "Vintage" brand butterd rum in a rite aid store in another state while vacationing. Always on a struggling budget I didnt buy the butterd rum as not a necessity but now that we are back in New jersey NO rite aid store here has butterd rum and OHHHH how I'd love to try it! My regular pipe tobacco is admiral's choice vanilla: its all she'll allow me to puff but honey got curious too about the butterd rum!! Well I used an email address I found and got to working with representatives of rite aid for the butterd rum: they merely disappeared on me! SO has anyone any idea how where I might find affordable ("Vintage") butterd rum pipe tobacco please???Hey THANK P.S. I included made up ratings only to make sure this got posted. you!!!
I love this tobacco. Taste is great, smell is great, price is great. Everyone loves when I smoke this. One of my most smoked tobaccos. Been coming back to this for years. Someone said "only a novice would smoke this". Didn't know pipe smoking was a contest of skill. It's all about the tobacco. I like the pipe and good tobacco. This is one good tobacco.
