Sliced Black Twist is the leading cause of stroke in pipe smokers. I think Brown Twist is even stronger. It's definitely worth a try. A dark, potent fired Virginia, with none of the sweetness McClelland dark Va's have. For the nicotine jaded.

Right up your alley. Reasonably (some say very) strong, a little soapy. Odd aroma.

Give Dark X X twist a try if you can get it Brim. It has a nice strong plum like old fashioned tobacco taste. I like to have this and some brown bogie lying around. Methinks you'd like em ;)

This is my kind of tobacco, the black Irish twist is good but I like the brown the best , strength , flavor, it there. I sliced it real thin so that it almost makes a shag type cut because it is pretty moist almost oily like , but with the thin slice it works great.

Thanks

Best I remember the BB is sweeter but still a strong smoke.

Anything can cause strokes. Classic Burley Kake can cause strokes. I nearly had a fuckin' stroke through frustration trying to find any nicotine whatsoever, not to mention the stress I then went through trying to get that overly hot sickening taste out of my mouth :lol: :lol:

Hey Clint, what pipe did you smoke it in. I always seem to struggle in keeping the stuff lit, maybe the pipe is a secret.

yeah I was just a little shocked the first smoke. I now smoke this and Brown Bogie without thinking about it, but in a small bowl.

Hi bud, Try letting it dry a bit before you pack your bowl, I smoke it in a small to medium size bowled pipe, Ehrlich Bulldog , & several grabows, I also slice the coins very thin so I end up with not quiet a shag cut, but close & I let it air a few minutes 15 to 20 minutes at most, that should do the trick. If you don't have a small bowled pipe pick you up a Dr. Grabow on ebay cheap , there great smokers .

Makes sense matey. Besides, unlike mixtures / ribbon cut they burn very slowly indeed so a small bowl is all that's required. I usually smoke strong twist tobacco in either my MM Cob pony, my unnamed straight / narrow billiard briar I bought cheap, or my straight Peterson shannon.

I gave my Father an ounce of the brown bogie along with a card for Fathers day,you should have seen his face when he lit up! He loved it!
He has been smoking a pipe for over 40 years and has never smoked a flake or a rope tobacco,Im giving him a tin of Irish Flake as well,im sure he will like it.
