Shepherd’s Pie (Full English/Oriental)

(19 customer reviews)


Frog Morton, eat your heart out!  A decidedly English-style tobacco that is incredibly kind to the mouth and packed with flavor!  A generous helping of Latakia is accompanied by noticeable Turkish Izmir, ribbon cut Virginias, unflavored black cavendish, and a dash of soft burley.  A complex blend and a non-aromatic treat!

    This is a great English blend, very smooth and burns well. It has a great flavor and produce a nice thick smoke.
    Don’t pass this one up.
    This was my first CS blend and looking forward to trying the other in my order. I’m positive it will be the same great quality and just as awesome as this one.

    Very nice, English/Oriental blend. It does remind me of the Frog Morton series, at least in flavor. It’s not as chunky as FM (more of a traditional ribbon cut) but tastes great!

    The smoothest non-aromatic that I have smoked to date – and without sacrificing any flavor. Great entry to Latakia and English blends in general.

    Excellence for those looking to buy this. Highly enjoyable.

    Excellent mild English blend!
    It’s leathery (in a good way), exceptionally smooth, cool-burning, earthy, and almost creamy in flavor. You may get a hint of natural sweetness, but it’s a mellow, creamy sort. Very nice flavor with a retrohale. No bite whatsoever. Great ribbon cut that packs easily and burns evenly. The room note and tin note are nice for an English blend, but won’t win you as many friends as Old Toby.
    This is pretty close to Frog Morton if you’re looking for a match.

    It doesn’t remind me of Frog Morton, but it is every bit the equal of another of my former favorites….Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River, maybe even better. It is also a lot like Comoy’s Cask #11. Wonderfully creamy and smokey, enough Orientals to give it some spice, without any of the tobaccos being over-the-top. A great all-day smoke. This is now in my permanent rotation.

    WOW, Why would any one try to compare shepherds pie to the frog? My opinion of shepherds pie stands in a LEAGUE of its own. I finely realized what happen to the frog, He smoked shepherds pie down in his cellar and never looked back. my goodness Mr. Cole you & Crew out did them all on this blend.

    Hands-down the best English blend I’ve ever smoked! Since moving on from the Lat-bomb phase of my smoking journey I’ve not been able to appreciate any English blends until this one. Perfectly balanced, just the right amount of Latakia and orientals to provide a symphony of flavors to explore even without much age on it. This is THE English blend that will be ever present in my rotation. I hardly ever leave reviews for products, but Jon David hit it out of the park with this one!

    Shepherds Pie is better than expected. I cheated somewhat by putting my last FM Cellar stave block in a jar. It is good after a few days; similar to the Cellar. But, it doesn’t need it at all. We try to replace certain products with new choices. The fact is, many tobaccos are great, but in their own way. We have to be open minded and expand our taste. It is like our favorite food from some joint. We are upset when it is taken away. We get over it and find a new favorite, eventually. This is a great tobacco that will satisfy your craving for other brands of past days. 👍🏻

    My new favorite tobacco. Smooth, tasty and no bite.

    Smoooooth! More often than not I reach for heavy English/Balkan blends. I would classify this as more of a mild/medium English, but it satisfied better than many of my go to blends. After the first bowl I immediately had to pack another. Not because it was lacking in any way but because it was so delicious and smooth. I can hardly keep my face out of the bag. Bravo Jon David and crew!

    Wow I purchased a half pound and wish I got more excellent English tobacco, I never had any of the McCelland blend’s came back into pipe smoking after a long hiatus and missed sadly but I’m very pleased that I found out about this it has a sweetness without being too heavy absolutely wonderful tobacco I’ll be back for more

    I was pretty bummed about Frog Morton’s Cellar going out of production because it was really the first blend I loved as a new pipe smoker, but I moved on. I tried a bunch of blends that were supposed to be a decent replacement and none of them were. I ended up trying some Shepherd’s Pie to kind of fill in, then someone sent me a little FMC and I got to try them back to back. I have to say that Shepherd’s Pie to me is easily just as good, if not a little better and readily available. An outstanding smoke.

    I’ve tried 7-8 of Country Squire’s aromatic blends and 4 non aromatics. Shepherd’s Pie is my favorite of them all and the best tobacco I’ve ever had from anywhere, period. The tin note is absolutely stunning and the flavor is unsurpassed. My palate is still developing so I don’t know how to describe what I taste but all I know is it’s delicious. I was surprised at how naturally sweet it is. I usually get 2 oz of a blend to test but decided to go with a 4 oz bag when I ordered this one and very happy I did! I’ll treasure every bowl full.

    I never tried Frog Morton, but was a fan of other McClelland tobaccos. Shepherd’s Pie, on opening the package, struck me as a very strong tobacco by the scent. On lighting it up, it was a very smooth and tasty smoke. It burned very well and had surprisingly few relights. Very enjoyable.

    Shepherd’ Pie has become one of my all time favorite blends. Beautifully balanced and complex, I find it never fails to deliver the experience I’m looking for in a Balkan blend. The interplay between the incense-like Izmir and smoky Cyprian Latakia is the main theme. The burley and black Cavendish add some nice body and a silky mouth-feel. The Virginia seems to add just enough of a citrus high note to complement the pungent Izmir sour soda taste. If you like latakia blends that are naturally sweet, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

    Superb! No other words necessary.

    I have not been disappointed with any of the Country Squire house blends I have tried so far. Shepherds pie is one of my favorites! I love the tin note and the room note is very nice. It burns to a gray ash all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Very few relights and is just smooth! I reach for this blend whenever I want to have a good long relaxing smoke while reading the Word of the Lord or a good book. Highly recommended!!!

    I enjoy smoking my pipe late in the evening before going to bed. When I smoked my first bowl of Shepherd’s Pie. I enjoyed it so much I did something I’ve never done before. I had to have a second bowl.
