Black Watch

For 10 years I have been smoking this beautiful tobacco, and for 10 years I have loved it. I won't say I love this tobacco as much as I love my wife...but I have loved it for a longer time. There is a wonderful sweet, cool, beauty to this tobacco that has made it wonderful for 10 years. The taste is vanilla. It turns out I just like vanilla.
It also turns out that it was named for a famous Scottish Military unit. I gotta admire anyone who can fight in plaid, though I imagine that they no longer fight in plaid. They are, however a pretty impressive group of soldiers. Gotta love a military tradition that has stood the test of time. You also have to respect a company that is willing to take advantage of the bravery and dedication of others to help them sell a product that causes cancer. Great stuff. Try it.


  1. Well, I'll certainly take a whiff.

  2. I don't usually do a lot with aromatics, even mild ones, but I'll see if I can find some of this.

  3. I have smokede Black Watch, daily for many years, seems to have changed, and not for the better in the last year, Tom at edwards in Colorado advises they have a new cutter, thus the change...your thoughts?
