Gambler is a perfect name for this tobacco because that exactly what your doing if you buy this and you will lose this gamble. To be honest I would rather smoke fescue than this.

This isn't pipe tobacco - this is cheap cigarette tobacco branded as pipe tobacco for tax purposes. The only tobacco flavor is pushed out from all of the chemicals that they use to process it, good for cigarettes I suppose, but not for the pipe smoker.

I like this product, I've rolled my own for 30 years, and for the price, this product is top notch, let's face it, cigarettes taste like crap, and are a waste of money, and are gonna kill us, but we were stupid enough to start smoking, and are still doing , that being said, Gambler is alright and I will continue to purchase this fine product, all you people whining about quality , stems etc , move on..I like smoking, especially for around a hundred dollars a YEAR, than 7 or 8 dollars a pack.. let's roll people!!!

Virginia and burley says it all. A nice blend. Takes one match and burns completely to bottom of bowl. Put a damp sponge in bag. Moist tobacco tends to burn cooler and a nicer aroma. The key to ribbon cut tobacco is to smoke it slowly.

Pipe Used: Briar and meershaum

Age When Smoked: 74

Purchased From: Food Lyon grocery

Similar Blends: similar to half and half but the burley is not as extreme making it a milder more aromatic virginia note..

This used to be a great bag for rolling cigarettes. They have went downhill exponentially. The bags are full of stems, large, medium, small and tiny. It is impossible to get all of the stems out. The tubes....well...half of them are too small for a cigarette roller. I originally thought I had warped my roller but then the other half of the box fit perfectly. Now, every box I get, some fit, some are just a hair to small. I'm ready to move on to another brand and I suggest you do the same.

Pipe Used: None

Most tobaccos in this genre are just cigarette tobacco re-cut. The result often yields a flavor of hay stuffed into your bowl. This brand is Burley-Forward. Now, when you open the bag the tobacco is quite dry. I needed to re-hydrate the stuff to work in my cob properly. It lights well and does produce a good amount of smoke. The taste is earthy and smooth. there is some citrus from the Virginia tobacco that is present, but the star is the Burley. The nicotine level seems okay. The room aroma is that of dark leaf and will not win any friends. Even hydrated, it does burn a little fast. The difference is I usually get a 25 minute smoke from this cob and this smoke is about 20 minutes. The ash is fine and jumps out of the bowl. The flavor stays the same down to the bottom. All in all, a good smoke. The price helps too. With a lot of the Codger blends I like in danger of disappearing, and others going for up to $50.00 a tub, I am on the look-out for a reasonably priced daily Burley. I am not saying this quite fills the bill, but this is one of my favorites from this genre. As I continue to search for that reasonably price codger blend, I will definitely keep this one in mind, especially at such a great price.
