Tobacco Review: Backwoods Black & Sweet

I was at the local Super Save last week buying a pouch of pipe tobacco. I’m not usually the cigar type- mainly because I enjoy smoking often and I really cannot justify spending ten dollars or more on something that will be smoked on a day. But I saw a pouch of Backwoods cigars and thought five bucks wasn’t bad for five cigars, so I bought them as a backup smoke.  This particular variety smelled like Cocoa Puffs cereal, and was a simple tapered cigar quick rolled in a vein-y leaf and open at both ends. Unfortunately mine were rock hard, but after a quick cheat re-hydration, they were moist enough to try so I lit one up.

A very sweet, chocolaty taste and smell (again, think Cocoa Puffs), with a loose, cool draw. No bite, plenty of nicotine. It’s pipe tobacco in a leaf, basically, and the price is great.
