    This is the first time I smoked it. heres my observations.after three packs 1.25 ounces.
    starting out with the pros

    Its got nicotine.
    It taste kinda like a camel cig but not as rough.
    It is satisfying.
    There is a distinct taste , kinda nutty but I cant figure what it is.
    It truly is manly however it seems similair to smoking cigs.
    Now lets observe the cons.
    It will burn fast.\
    It will set youins back in your seat. nic. sometimes but not always.
    It is stringy and clings together similair to hair fibers.
    nothing else to say negative about it.
    Final diagnosis
    I find nothing un remarkable about this tobacco. Its really good to smoke. the only problem I encountered was a inability not to want to inhale. But I found shallow inhallations quite pleasing.
    Would I recommend this to a friend? yes.
    I like it and will continue to smoke it, however it is very good mixed with a cavendish for better flavor. When mixed its very much a heavy smoke that Ive been seeking. It also smokes good in a cob. However, It does burn hot enough to scorch the out side of the cob so use caution.
    Prognosis.....buy more

    I like the stuff, and if they would just pack it a little more moist it would be ideal. I still prefer Kendal Dark, but if I want just a good, solid, straightforward burley, it's what I go for. I am in the minority, it doesn't make me think too much of cigarettes...heck, I rolled one with it one time and didn't enjoy it, personally....I actually think a slightly quicker burn time is one of it's strong points. It's THE perfect smoke break blend

    haha...I'm not advising one way or another, but in MY experience it wasn't all that pleasant. I think Kendal Dark, on the other hand, makes darn near perfect cigarettes for my tastes. Haven't done that in a really long time, though....

    It has been around forever. I am 67 and my grandfather smoked it as a rolled cigarette, and chewed it! I bought some awhile back and found it to be an easy all day smoke in a pipe. I don't think it had the nicotine wallop that my dad had warned me about. Four Brothers is a must try for the pure tobacco lover. Time to order some again:D.

    Four brothers, eh? See that's your problem, man...it's only got four of them...you should try some five brothers, it's got one more brother in there and he's tough as nails...if you aren't too careful he can open up a can of oh-my-goodness on ya! :puffy:

    (If I haven't eaten and haven't smoked strong tobacco in a while, anyway)
