    Bag End is my favorite “Light Latakia” blend. I’m not a huge fan of very strong English blends or lots of Latakia in general. This blend is the perfect balance of Latakia, Virginias, and Orientals for me. It’s mellow and smoky and perfect for quiet contemplative pipe smoking sessions. It’s not for every day, but there are days when it’s the only blend I want. A must try for every pipe smoker!

    The description is spot on. Perfect blend for a contemplative evening. Nuanced and well balanced. This is a permanent fixture in my cellar.

    Bag End has become my go-to tobacco. It’s a solid, dependable, pleasant nonaromatic. Highly recommended.

    I love english blends, and this one is amazing. This is what hobbits smoke on cold winter nights tucked away in there holes. I could ramble on about this for quite some time. Suffice it to say this is a superb tobacco and will be in my regular line up.

    I bought an oz of Bag End to try after reading the description. I greatly enjoyed the other tobaccos in my order, but have decided after years of searching that this is my blend. I plan on ordering a pound in the future. As the description notes, this is a complex blend but also incredibly rewarding. So many wonderful flavors with the perfect amount of Latakia.

    Tobacco reviewers are limited by their own palate, the preference and predisposition. Further limiting are mixtures that are far enough off the beaten track so as to defy simple categorization. We can all readily agree on what makes an aromatic, for example, but what precisely divides english mixtures from scottish, or balkan?
    Regardless of which faction you side with in what is really an ongoing contention, Bag End should fall nicely in the scottish genre for most of us, with its muted, more subtle use of latakia and the addition of a very nice burley. The orientals used here okay nicely with the virginia, giving each careful puff a sweet/sour interplay.
    The prevalence of virginia here means that it’ll get really hot really fast with reckless puffing. Exuberant smokers will freight-train right past Bag End’s subtleties and think it pointless, but sipping this mixture, one finds the idea of a comfortable fire in a warm and cozy hobbit hole tremendously appealing.

    I have found this tobacco to be a pleasure to smoke. It has a subtle sweetness to it that comes out especially when smoked slowly. It can have a bit of a bite when it gets too hot so if you’re not in a hurry, (which why would you be if you’re smoking a pipe) it’s great. Now that I’m at the end of my bag I suppose it should get more…bag end that is!

    I was looking for a replacement for Frog Morton, and this wasn’t it. However, it is the absolute equal to my other favorite…Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River, maybe even a bit smoother. A nice creamy, smokey flavor with enough Orientals to add some spice, without any of the tobaccos being over-the-top. A nice all-day smoke. This is now in my permanent rotation. It is also similar to Comoy’s Cask #11. An outstanding smoke.

    I like the look of the ready rubbed Virginia’s. A thick looking blend that’s inviting from the 1st glance of the bag. The aroma and taste is reminiscent of my morning smoke in which I’ve been looking for a replacement. Lighter on the latakia but it’s there in the amount I enjoy and sometimes prefer over a heavier blend. There’s a sweetness to it and a spicy note from time to time and the latakia shines in the back ground if you sip it, though I taste it regardless but it is better sipped. When I pull hard on the drag it smokes hot but has a hardy tobacco taste that i like and tingles the nasals on the retro-hale. It’s so enjoyable no matter how I smoke it. The description says it’s a Scottish blend but I’m calling it my new morning blend. Is Bag End for the end of the day or an all day smoke? I say both please and thank you!
