BAG END by The Country Squire.

About a month ago the Middle Earth blends from The Country Squire https://www.thecountrysquireonline.com/product-category/tobacco/middle-earth-tobaccos/ (Scroll down to the BRTV SAMPLER) started being “tasted” and as a fan of everything J.R.R. Tolkien I had to get in on this. As you can see in the next link, alot has gone into the “Club” https://www.briarreport.org/2020/08/20/country-squires-middle-earth-series-episode-2-bag-end/(give them a few days and this review will likely be there also).

Bag End, named after the mos famous of Hobbit Holes, is a Scottish mixture. Slightly sweet, a touch of smoke, and a nice black pepper Sting. A blend of Burley, Latakia, Turkish/Orientals, and some flue cured Virginia. The closest thing I can compare to it in food is Almond Brittle with a touch of JalapeΓ±o cooked on a wood burning stove. Absolutely delicious, hard to define.

Strength, the Burley can Sneak up on you like Golem in a cave. This is better savored slow and steady. The Smoke is thick, white to gray, and holds well, Perfect for Smoke Rings with any passing Wizard.

I prefer it in a Cob, it brings out the natural sweetness. Briar tends to make the pepper “Sting” just a little more pronounced. The Clay and Meerschaum didn’t hurt, but, didn’t really do much for the blend either.

It pairs well with coffee on a lazy morning or a good stiff drink at the end of the day. I find it enjoyable all day, but cautiously if you have much more to do than watching paint dry. Just not the right blend for a vigorous day of action, one bowl and you will see why.

On to the dreaded Binary. ONE, who didn’t see that coming? Let’s just say that when I reach the end of the bag of Bag End, it will not be the end of Bag End. I’m already planning on getting more.

As Always,

Long Lives, Big Bowls, and Long Ashes.
