Id like to start by stating that Condor long cut is one of my favourite pipe tobaccos, but this is a different kettle of fish entirely. Whilst the long cut is a lovely taste of tobacco, this is a very floral and soapy taste. I really did not enjoy this tobacco. To the point where I didnt even come close to finishing half of the bowl. Not recommended.

Upon opening the pouch there is a lovely scent of tobacco with mixed dried fruits. Ive heard people describe it as having a soapy scent and taste but I simply didnt get this. The flakes rubbed out very easily and it came at the perfect moisture content for smoking directly from the packet: not too wet that it was difficult to light, but not dry and crusty either. Ive smoked several bowls, using both my Country Gentleman Missouri Meerschaum corncob pipe and a Meerschaum pipe (Ive heard that these ghost briar pipes something awful). The tobacco lights without a problem and the first thing that I noticed was the plumes of smoke it produced. These werent overly potent in scent, but this was definitely the most smoke output Ive experienced from a pipe tobacco. Condor Long Cut produced a smooth and full bodied smoking experience. It produced absolutely no tongue-bite. Regarding tastes this was simply a straight up tobacco taste, I couldnt pick out which tobaccos exactly, I would guess that it is quite a mixture as none stood out. There were faint hints of a light alcohol casing and a bit of a woody note to the tobacco. Sadly the pleasant fruity note was present when in the pouch notes didnt come through to the lit taste, but neither did the soapy/floral notes that I had been warned about. Overall I would say that this is a solid flake tobacco. It seemed to be medium to full flavoured, but it did lack depth; the notes didnt change duration of the smoke. Certainly not for those that like a light smoke or are into aromatics, but if your a fan of straight up tobacco flavour then this is well worth a try.

This was my first ever pipe smoked and the bowl was filled with Condor Blended. The smoke at the time of puffing was quite a bit milder than smoking the majority of cigars, however the lingering smell lasted far longer (7 hours later and the smell is still strong). The taste of the tobacco was very mild and I experienced no bitterness or tongue bite. Sadly it also made for a slightly boring smoke as I expected it to develop a bit like a cigar does in the different thirds, but the taste remained the same throughout. It wasn't unpleasant: it was a mild tobacco taste, but little else with no hints of fruits, coffee or coco etc. The burn was very slow indeed. I'd been warned that smoking a pipe quickly, like a cigar, will lead to a bitter and hot smoke. I smoked the pipe for 50 mins and there was still more left in the bottom of the bowl but sadly my free time had run out and I had to put the pipe aside for the time being. Overall this is probably a very good pipe tobacco for newbies, certainly one for those that prefer a milder tobacco. However I normally smoke fairly full bodied maduro cigars (my current favourite is the Macanudo Inspirado Black) so for my next pipe smoke I think I will be looking to try something stronger.

This is fast becoming my favourite smoke. When I first pack the pipe, I get the flavour of rich fruit, almost like a fruit cake filled with currants and raisins. Over time this fades to a darker, heavier smoke, more woody but just as pleasing. The flakes are easily to roll and pack in the pipe and, once it's going, the tobacco stays lit. Highly recommended.

Easily rubbed out.A great smoke,some find it "soapy",however in a good quality meerschaum I find this non existent.As an everyday tobacco,it's hard to beat,English "Lakeland" at its best.A great favourite,my stand by for all seasons.
