    I always hear about favorite pipe tobacco's and their descriptions as not being TOO sweet. Name me some specific tobacco blends that you find ... TOO sweet.

    Obviously excluding aros - I find McClelland 5100 to be almost too sweet for me. Hamborger Veermaster is another that's on the verge. Both are great tobaccos though.

    I've never had it - but 'Sugar Barrel' sounds a likely candidate? :ohyh:

    I found G&H to be verging on too sweet. Mac baren cube is also pretty close, but a great blend really.

    I find McBaren's Navy Flake way too sweet for my tastes.

    Actually it isnt at all. Not sure where the name came from, but it is barely sweet at all. Some wouldnt even notice a sweetness. Weird.

    Yep. It's a brown sugar barrel, really. Not too sweet at all.

    Erinmore Flake is definitely too sweet for my tastes, and I have a sweet tooth when it comes to my favorites. I smoke va, vaper and vabur flakes exclusively and many are nice and sweet to my tastes but Erinmore is over the top for me. It has a cloyingly sweet flavor that just won't quit.

    Marlin Flake is about as sweet as I can enjoy on a regular basis - 'cause I'm sweet 'nuff already. :beck:

    Anything cordial is sickly sweet to me, also, whatever that casing is in tobaccos like MacB Dark Twist and Pete's Connosiour's Choice and Irish Oak are not only too sweet but chap my tongue something awful.
