Ive been following the SG Black XX thread and have found in my own smoking adventure that my tastes seem to be getting darker and darker. I was wondering what other DARK tobaccos people here really ENJOY? The flavor descriptions like: Diesel, Steak, Oil, Stout are right what Im looking for.

Some rim charring is to be expected.

SG Black Irish XX is the only one that I've had that those adjectives of yours fit to a 'T'.

Stronger, darker (likely nicotine laden) blends with different adjectives would be SG 1792, G&H Dark Flake unscented, G&H Happy Bogie (I'm guessing...never had it), Peterson Irish Flake,. and Five Bros. None of these come off as carnivorous meal, mind you, but they can be 'filling', just the same.

There are surely others, but I'm limited by what I know, and can think of at the moment.

(Dark Star, Marc? Really? It doesn't cross me as a beefy blend.)

He asked, dark tobaccos, Dark Star is most definitely a dark tobacco... looks like strips of tar...

I really like Petersons Irish Flake, but i could see enjoying it if there was a darker, "burnt" element to it as well ... I def. want to give the Black X a try.

Taste wise, I'm thinking SG Commonwealth, or McC Anniversary. Not too old, or the virginias really sweeten up on you.

Hi All,

The Old Brit stand-by Condor long cut does it for me. Though I have smoked it off and on since 1966, I have trouble describing it's unique taste. It's got strong dark virginia in there, liquorice and something maybe cough medicine - y too. It ghosts, it's a wet smoker, has a powerfull room note, but Heavens it's one that has stayed the course.

Another of my favourites, particulary in winter is Carey's No & Dark Flake - Carey's take on Revor, which is available in America. Strong dark stoved virginia with a slight hint of spice and an earthy room note. You get a pleasant tang in your mouth with this one - just like when you take the first pull at a pint of Guiness,

Best to all

Gerry

......agreed on the Condor Gerry - I've smoked it a bit longer than that!, but I think that in America it's like finding rocking horse sh....er....droppings! ;)
