Kentucky Club Continental Blend is one of my favorite smokes... My fondness for it makes me want to try Kentucky Club Mild. Sadly, as far as I can tell, the iconic 1.5 oz box has been discontinued and it's only available in a 14oz tub.

I tried a pouch of this many moons ago when I was about 18... All I remember about it was it came in a blue pouch, was cut very fine, and was very dry. I may have got an old pouch, and I'm sure this was before it was a Middleton product.

Just wondering if anyone on here smokes this blend or has smoked and what their thoughts on it are...

You can still get the pouch? I thought it was discontinued in the pouch? If so, let me know, I'll send you the $$ for a pouch & postage...

I enjoy KCM a lot. I find it on par with Velvet.

I would like to hear from smokers, like yourself Don, who smoke KC Continental Blend and or KC Mixture. I'd like to know how they compare in taste and room note. How they are different? Are they aromatic like SWRA or CB? "English" in nature? Etc...

I'm very fond of KC Continental, too. But I have to admit that I've never really been able to make the "Mild" work for me. It's not bad, but I do find it a little bland. I bought a tub a couple of years back and I don't find that I'm going through it very quickly. The Continental has more flavor to me (that subtly sweet coconut quality) and tends to smoke cooler. Of course, everyone reacts differently to such things.

I have no idea where you can buy a pouch of the Mild, though. Sorry.

KCC is really just a mild, lightly sweetened Burley. The ad-copy claims that it is a "European Cavendish" but that is misleading for most who associate the word "Cavendish" with post-Captain Black American aromatics. To me, it's very similar to Carter Hall. On occasion, I pick up the faint coconut top-note that is supposed to be there, but usually I don't.

Ditto on the coconut note. Every now and then I taste it. I think it's just such a great burning, cool smoking tobacco that I totally enjoy.
