Hunting Creek (English Aromatic)

(7 customer reviews)

A truly exotic cocktail of tobacco; full-flavored, yet mild.  We refer to this blend as a “hybrid” because it has characteristics of English and Aromatic pipe blends.  Semi-sweet flavors are accented by a dash of Latakia to make each bowl its own adventure.  One of our most complex blends.  Extremely pleasing to your companions, Hunting Creek has an intoxicating room note.

    English-aromatic hybrids are not easily created IMHO but Jon David was up to the challenge on this one. Slightly sweet but rich and full bodied. This has an amazing flavor AND room note for a blend containing latakia. I can add a little Frog Morton or Bengal Slices to make the blend lean toward a traditional style English or leave it alone because it’s so good on its own. Bravo, sir!

    As advertised. Should be the next step for sure for an aromatic smoker.

    Very nice. I was looking for a smoke similar to McClelland’s Frog Morton so I contacted the Pros at The Country Squire. They recommended Hunting Creek. I tried it in a Cob and Squat Bulldog Briar. I must say, “it is close”. Hunting Creek is just a tad more aromatic that the Frog Morton and the Frog Morton has a bit more of the Latakia. However, I was not led astray with Hunting Creek. What a great smoke!

    Four stars for Hunting Creek, solely because it’s lacking just a hair of latakia. This is a five-star blend but more aromatic than English. It has, regardless, becoming a favorite for my first pipe of the morning because the creamy semisweet tone complements beautifully a morning cup of light sweet Colombian. There is enough latakia here to make this a blend that engages a huge bunch of my palate, but not quite enough to really stand alone as a crossover.
    Highly recommended as a mixture for aro fans who are lat-curious, but not ready to really commit to it. Personally I love both aros and Englishes, so this absolutely deserves a spot in my rotation.

    Nice after dinner treat, the room note pleasing to any one that may be around. but to just relax in your smoking chair after a good hardy meal skipping desert cause Hunters Creek is a treat in its self not to sweet but yet just enough to say good evening with a light hint of latakia reminding you of a fall evening of leafs covering the trail you had walked down earlier that day. Damn good job gentlemen keep up the outstanding work at The Country Squire.

    This is the sweetest, smoothest pipe aromatic tobacco I have yet tried. It is easily in my top 3. Smells so good that everyone asks about it. I plan to buy this for many years to come.

    Wow— I was looking for a crossover-like blend because I’m getting curious about English blends and I know TCS has the goods.I don’t anything about English blends or latakia other than that they’re “full flavored”.

    So here goes: the aromatic component reminds me of Old Toby but certainly not as sweet or strong.

    As for the English style, well that’s new to me so all I can say is that it definitely has flavor that the other TCS non aromatics (in my experience Green Dragon and Cowboy Coffee) don’t have— so new to my palate but fantastic.

    “Semi sweet “ as it’s described is pretty accurate. Aromatic aspect wanes toward the end of the bowl.

    If you want to take a step toward English and you’re fond of aromatics this is a good step. But I think I will agree with others who say this is definitely more aromatic than English but no harm there— it’s a wonderful smoke.
