I tried sugar barrel this morning. It tasted to me just what it is - a cheap tobacco. It wasn't bad enough to make me dump the bowl before I finished it, but I didn't particularly like it either. I don't understand what people see in this. I tried it because I have seen so many people online raving about it. I don't write off a tobacco based on 1 bowl, so I will be trying it again. It may be that it was my first pipe of the day, and I was drinking black coffee with it. The next time I try it, will be later in the day with no coffee. Then, if I still don't like it, I'll put it in the stack of "send to someone else, save for a box pass" tobacco.
