    I was going thru my cellar today and came upon 2 jars of deer tongue tobacco. been hidden away 3-4 years. Grabbed "The General" and filled it up with Gentleman Caller. It was a very enjoyable revisit. Later on today I Grabbed "The Country Gentleman" and filled it up with Crooner, another nice revisit. I think these two revisits of an old smelling aroma will last me for another 3-4 years.......but still a nice visit... Any deer tongue fans out there........

    I've been really curious about it, but it seems people have an even tougher time describing it than tonquin, and I've yet to make the leap and try it.

    It's a good sweet taste.. with a distinct aroma... Deer Tongue is a wild vanilla plant...

    Sort of minty vanilla, yeah. Leaves the pipe smelling excellent. I smoke a bit of Crooner once in awhile.

    The bag I have is just straight Deer Tongue, do you smoke it that way, if not, what kind of tobacco do you recommend mixing it with?

    I would not smoke just the deer tounge. It's nice mixed with a plain burley.
    Edit: A little of the Deer Tounge goes a long way.

    I buy Crooner by the pound. Another C&D Deer Tongue blend that is good is Trinidad

    Thanks, that's kinda what I was expecting. Some how, I just couldn't imagine it would be good straight up.

    I don't think you could get but maybe a puff or two of plain Deer Tongue before you passed out.

    I think if you were to smoke straight deer tongue, you would have the smell of it on you for years to come...

    Yeah, I think I'll just mix it with some Burley as suggested. Thanks!

    I've had Crooner in my rotation for a week and a half now. I really like it. Never heard of Trinidad. Think I'll give it a try sometime.
