I love it!
I was first turned onto this a couple years ago at my pipe club. Where I live it isn’t readily available.
I ordered 10 pouches about a month ago and I am just about out. My favorite tobaccos are F&T’s Blackjack, Capatan Blue, Gawith & Hogarth Best Brown No.2, St Bruno, and Condor... I really hope it comes back in stock soon, it was next time I’ll buy 30 or 40 pouches easily, I prefered the flake, just cause I like that’s always what I got from other people at my pipe club and in my area when it was available on occasion, this was my first time getting the “ready rub” and I must say it was just as good, I was very pleased with it. In the future I’ll most likely buy both. If they ever get in the condor plug, I would get that, I’ve only had it twice, and that is a wonderful treat!
I live in the States, and have tried all the pouch/drug store pipe tobaccos, and Condor, by far is not one of those typical tobaccos. It has a premium tobacco flavor, that you get from the Gawith blends that I love. It has its own unique smell right out of the pouch. You don’t smell the lakeland, but when you smoke it, the wonderful soapy flavor is there along with the sweet virginas. I felt very lucky to have found that Mr Snuff will ship this to the US. I recommend this tobacco 100%, and will keep it in my rotation. Smokes wonderfully right out of the pouch.
