    Not a review, but...

    I finally found some JackKnife Plug at a local B&M today, haven't smoked it yet, but I had to open and sample the tin aroma. It is incredible! I just want to eat it! I am trying so hard not to cut a chunk off and stick it under my lip!

    In no way is this a tobacco that I normally would try, being I only smoke a Latakia blend, but I may have to try something new... This is a Kentucky and Virginia tobacco, so is there anything out there that is similar? I'm just not familiar with other types of tobaccos.

    The best plug I have smoked to date. Just light it up and enjoy! I have some of the original release, and 8-9 months of age makes a huge difference.

    Age, even 4-6 months does wonders. Sure glad Greg did this. Now, there's a ready-rubbed JKP too!

    Enjoy!

    I bought a tin of this but have yet to open it nor try it. Looking forward to it, but I have too many other things to smoke first. Glad it gets good reviews here.

    From what I understand, the triple play is a less intense version of JKP but good as well. I've got a tin of each dating from last spring that I'm looking forward to.

    Keep meaning to order JKP and always forget. Like Mark, it is on the to do list!

    Doesn't the tin aroma remind you of beef jerky? Mine usually does, though there are times when I don't get that at all. Always an excellent smoke though.

    I think I would like it better if it were a bit more Virginia and a little less fire-cured. It's a rather dry smoke and I don't think I'm going to pursue a follow-up tin.

    Ken, when it's aged (even 8-9 months) that dryness disappears, and the Va will be more pronounced. Don't give up yet!!!

    I've been wanting to try this for a while, now. I think I might get myself a tin of the regular plug to age, and a tin of the ready rubbed for immediate enjoyment soon.

    When it comes to that dryness, Ken, I might suggest trying Cornell & Diehl's Night Train. It's not a proper plug, but an unsliced crumble cake. That said, it's a really nice VA/Bur/Per which is VA dominant, yet maintains a medium-strong level of nicotine. Nothing that will overwhelm you (or rather, nothing that will overwhelm me) but strong enough to satisfy. Which, for me, is a rare treat among semi-sweet Virginia-forward blends. I know JKP has no perique, but I thought that if your only complaint with JKP was a lack of sweetness then Night Train might be something that would interest you. I'm not saying they're very similar - as I've said, I've never yet smoked JKP.
