    Hi all,
    I have been wanting to try a tobacco with Deer Tongue.
    Since I like venison jerky, I figured I would like this too.
    (Just kidding! I know it's a plant)
    What bulk blends do you suggest, so that maybe I can buy an ounce at a time to try?
    Thanks in advance

    C&D Crooner has deer tongue.

    Careful what you wish for - just sayin'.

    C&D Crooner has a lot of it in it, and C&D Gentleman Caller has just a little.

    Makes it taste funky. Really weird stuff, I don't care for it.

    My hat is off to you, sir. Keep us posted on what you find.

    This could be a lucky smoke when going to the track to bet on the ponies.

    Smoke in good health,
    WK

    Old Tartan from pipesandcigars has the most three star ratings on TR for a deer tongue flavored blend.

    I think it tastes like vanilla. I enjoy it, if its not overdone. I've never had Crooner, but I have a little New Market in the ol' cellar. My B&M sells it in bulk and I think it's actually C&D New Market (available only in bulk). M-ing, I'd be willing to part with it if you want--just shoot me a PM if interested.

    Have tried Crooner and Mojo. Crooner tastes well when you first light it, but gets unbelievable sour by the halfway through the bowl. I gave some to a friend, telling him I didn't care for it but not saying why, and he said the same thing and stopped smoking the bowl.

    Mojo fared a little better, but by this point, I think I had lost my interest in deer tongue.

    Agree that it tastes very much like vanila--but without being an actual aromoatic.

    I'd be curious to try some in cake/flake or rope form.
