Rivendell (Nutty, Woody, Cocoa)

(24 customer reviews)

One of our “Middle Earth” Series tobaccos, dedicated to the works of Tolkien.  Rivendell is woodsy and earthy, with the slightest hint of cocoa.  Mildly sweet with a hint of walnut.  Rivendell’s room note turns heads with each puff.

    I absolutely, unoquiviecly, unconditionally love this blend. It carries an amzing aromatic smell all the while maintaining an original tobacco taste. I lost a bag of this tobacco about a year ago and just found it again in my closet. I packed a bowl and it still smokes like a dream. Will buy again

    I am enjoying this blend. My daughter says it smells like s’mores when I smoke it.

    I can’t really do tobacco reviews as I can only tell you what I like and don’t like. That said I really like Rivendell. Sometimes I have a difficult time picking out flavors, however, here I do get the hints of coco and even the walnut when enjoying this tobacco. It is not overpowering and it does not cover up the choice tobaccos used in this blend. It is just perfectly done. It has become my morning commute tobacco for some reason though it sounds good to me anytime of the day. It will be a sad day for me if I ever run out of this (or the White Rose). If you haven’t tied Rivendell yet you need to, you really do.

    If you are an aromatic fan, this one is GREAT. Lovely room note that will please any bystanders combined with a good flavor with a hint of spice. Can imagine talking with Elrond while puffing it. Not usually an aromatic smoker, but this one is top notch.

    OMG!!! This stuff is delicious! I love the taste, and my wife will love the aroma. Thank you!

    This is one fine tabak! It’s smooth and mellow as you smoke, and I haven’t found anyone who can complain about the room note. Everyone loves the aroma, the flavor is pronounced but so smooth and rich, it’s like sipping cream. The sweetness soothes after a long day without being overpowering.

    Dreamy. You get a nutty, cocoa liqueur-like infused, medium thick, decadent smoke. You definitely get a heavenly aroma is s’mores around your face, hands, and clothes… absolutely divine. Sounds odd, but I find myself smelling my hands and upper lip to enjoy the aroma even after I’m all done LOL.

    This is not as wet or sweet as, say, Old Toby. It’s definitely nice as a lightly sweet, heavenly aromatic smoke on a cool spring morning (like today!).

    Bilbo didn’t want go to Rivendell to finish his book— that was a clever ruse— he wanted to smoke the Elves’s tobacco!

    I tried all the Middle Earth Blends and this one is by far my favorite!
    Tasty, easy to smoke, not wet, smooth… everything is perfect in this blend !

  9. Larry Bitar (verified owner)

    My favorite Middle Earth blend… Everything is perfect, taste, smoke….

    This is far and away the best aromatic pipe tobacco I have ever had in twenty years of smoking pipe. The room note is amazing, and it actually tastes like it smells.

    I cannot recommend it enough.

    Like all the rest of the Middle Earth tobacco’s, Rivendell is simply outstanding! The Middle Earth tobacco’s are just about the only aromatics I smoke anymore. I have others but I don’t reach for them. The Country Squire in my humble opinion is the finest tobacco shop in the country!

    Room note is excellent. Cool thick smoke. Really well done.

    On the subject of room note. If you are a social person, this is a bug deal. People gravitate to the wonderful smell of pipe aromatics. Some more so than. Others.

    I don’t smoke it for anyone’s approval. It’s nice however when you don’t clear the room like firing up your favorite cigar.

    Working my way thru the sampler pack. So far Old Toby is my favorite. Rivendell is my second fav. Will be buying more of both.

    Hands down my favorite aromatic. Rich and delicious. Nutty cocoa but the tobacco comes through. Burns great after an hour of dry time. This is one that never gets old. Rivendell with a cup of coffee with cream in the morning, or with a nice IPA in the evening is a slice of heaven.

  14. Adam (verified owner)

    Thick creamy smoke, smooth tobacco taste with a little hint of woody oak and cocoa and black cherry maybe… easy on the tongue and a really smooth room note.

  15. Gary Margolis (verified owner)

    Unbelievable. Now at the top of my list.

  16. ponderingprepper (verified owner)

    A true joy to experience. I suffer from severe tounge bite so a Virginia blend is very difficult for me. This has minimal to almost no tounge bite. Really smooth sweet flavor with mild cocoa on the backend. The sweetness lasts long after the bowl is finished. Love it! Will definitely be added to my rotation.

    As a moderator on the Brothers of Briar website I can attest that if we were to do a “member favorites” thing then Rivendell would most likely place in the top three of all aromatic blends. If someone mentions it, and I’ve never seen a negative comment, there’s typically a chorus of posts that ring the “Amen!” bell. It’s my favorite aromatic…delicious yet tobacco rich. And so again, Kudos to the Squire for another absolutely top shelf blend.

  18. Noah Richardson

    I smoked a bowl of this on the way home from Mississippi today. I stopped to get gas. My wife hugged me and said, “You smell good! ” You smell like the GOOD Tobacco”

    I’ll just leave it there brothers.

    Oh my word… I may have to order a lot more of this blend than I originally thought.

  20. Michael Spawn (verified owner)

    Initially, I didn’t think chocolate would be a good flavor of tobacco…I was wrong. I enjoy the the flavor immensely. I have paired it with my favorite coffee first thing in the morning.

    This is an awesome smoke treat yourself the nutty woody cocoa awesome together I will buy more and the customer service and fast delivery was great

  22. drmacdona (verified owner)

    In my most recent order I requested my first (2 oz.) sample and immediately regretted not ordering more. It’s flavorful, well-mannered, full-bodied, all with a smile-inducing room note. Rivendell is perfection in a pipe and if this were the *only* blend available to me I’d be wonderfully content. Will order more.

    After the loss of my prized Frog Morton, I considered giving up the pipe. Until I found Rivendale. A truly wonderful experience. Recommend!

    Man, I don’t know who at The Country Squire formulated this blend, but whoever it was deserves a raise. Easily my favorite TCS blend. Can not be beat with some kind of sweet sip in accompaniment, in my case hot, sweet tea or a bottle of good root or ginger beer. Good, GOOD stuff.
