Great tasting classic American tobacco that will become an instant favorite. Well priced, burns slow, great taste, aftertaste that makes me think of walnuts or almond. Great for first time smokers or those who enjoys a comfortable tobacco with nice room note.
I am officially a huge fan. I usually enjoy classic American blends, so when I ordered some I was very excited to try it out. I was not disappointed. CH has for sure become my usual and go to blend when breaking in a new pipe or looking for something easy and pleasant to smoke.
a very good straightforward blend. The small packs are good to have stashed in the car as a backup. I was on an out of town job and stayed longer than planned. It was nice not to have to find pipe tobacco in an unfamiliar area.
This is the 1st tobacco I smoked in the mid 1970"s. I've smoked a lot of different tobaccos but always return to Carter Hall. It's a well behaved smoke that has that old time taste and aroma. It smokes quite good in a corn cob pipe. I have used it mixed in stuff I wasn't wild about and it usually makes it better. I have told my family that I want to be put in the ground with a pouch of Carter Hall, one of my Cob pipes and a bottle of PBR. I recommend it to young/new smokers who have been overwhelmed by all the sweet aromatics they tried.
This is a good simple smoke. I enjoy it all day, and it has no bad after taste. Not much in the flavor department, but simple Burley for all day smoking. Sugar Barrel was much better, R.I.P. Sugar Barrel.
Classic Virginia, Burley blend. Simple and straightforward. Light nuttiness which improves with time. Can get harsh if smoked too fast.
A great American classic Has the typical Burly nuttiness that is oh so delicious.
A mild smoke. As previously mentioned, not much flavor but mixes well with other tobaccos. Tames the harshest blends. This is my back up tobacco and I plan to always keep some on hand.
I just recently picked up a tin and it's been my everyday smoke since. Always smooth and mild to the bottom of the bowl with minimal relighting. I have more expensive tinned and bulk tobaccos, too, and they're excellent. But nothing beats CH for a go to smoke any time of the day. Don't listen to the snobs that turn their collective noses at OTC or "drugstore" brands.
I've smoked pipes on and off most of my life. I started with Carter Hall in the 80's and I'm still with it. I cannot stand the sweet blends. Just keep it simple and easy to smoke. LR. Brunswick, GA
I must admit that I was a true snob when it came to OTC tobacco, until a friend of mine insisted that I give it a try. I'm glad I did, because I now keep it on hand continuously. It has become part of my regular rotation, as both a stand alone, as well as a pallet cleanser between some of my more potent mixes. It is a nice cool smoke and has a great room note and flavour. It is worth saying that it smokes beautifully through both briar and cob, albeit a bit more butter sweet through a cob. I do enjoy it through both. A great little smoke this.
Good stuff and great in a cob! Very similar to Prince Albert.
On internet forums, Carter Hall is affectionately known as a 'codger' brand. Like Prince Albert and Sir Walter Raleigh, it's been a faithful, drug-store standby for decades. I tried it out on the (basically, constant and boundlessly enthusiastic) recommendation of a forum I visit. Believe the hype! This is everything people say it is, and so much more (for so much less!). An affordable, beautiful smoker with a nice, mild flavor, and a room note that won't have the wife or GF chasing you out of the house. Winner winner, chicken dinner.
I still remember where I bought my first pouch of Carter Hall, it was in a gas station mini-mart on Williamsbridge Rd in the Bronx. It was all they had and I was wasn't expecting much - boy was I wrong. This is the tobacco that made it clear that I liked burley blends. It has a great smell in the pouch, packs and lights easily, and is very forgiving to fast-paced smoker. And honestly, I love the taste - and its even better in corn-cob pipe. I've spent a lot more on other name brands but I always come back to Carter Hall.
I've smoked this on and off many times and every time I try something different, I want this ! A nice light burley /vs blend. Its nutty with a slight fruity cream soda flavor and aroma. Its not goopy and syrupy ! It just sweet enough. I always return to this and Prince Albert. Never let down with either one !
After two years of pipe smoking, this has become my go to smoke.
CH is probably the comfort food of the pipe tobaccos. It's not fancy or complicated. It is my meat and potatoes all day smoke. It also blends well with others. Nobody complains in the room when I smoke it. Burns good in any bowl shape. I don't get any bite with it. When something is simple, plain, and good you don't have to go into an in depth explanation of why something should taste good. Try it and enjoy it for what it is, a very good all day smoke.
Today I compared a fresh pouch of Carter Hall to Hearth & Home's Chatham Manor. I used a new MM Eaton cob pipe. Have to say I much preferred CH. The CH burned cooler with no bite and lasted longer. The smoke was also richer and a bit more flavorful, though both tobaccos are very mild. Easy to keep lit and burns down to a gray-white ash. Chatham manor is a good smoke, but takes more work to keep it lit; thus it burns Faster, hotter and with some bite. In the little Eaton, a bowlful seems gone in a flash. CH may become my go-to smoke.
I have to admit, when I first started smoking a pipe a little over a year ago I HATED this tobacco. I guess my palate was not ready for burley blends yet, but on a whim I decided to give it another chance. Now I see what everyone is talking about! This tobacco is a sweet, toasty, no-fuss classic that everyone should try at least once. If you don't like it at first, try it again you may find yourself smoking this incessantly like I do.
Excellent
I have stated most of my background information in my previous review of Mixture No. 79. So, I'll get right to work with my review of Carter Hall. I can't say enough good things about this OTC blend. It burns well, taste great from start to finish, and is always consistently good. I was very satisfied with the 14 oz tin which I purchased. The aroma out of the can is also wonderful. It has a sweet mild friendly, easy going taste. It definitely makes me feel relaxed and adds to my joy of pipe smoking. It is also a good bargan for its quality. I have recently tried Prince Albert in the pouch from my local convenience store and purchased a pouch of Sir Walter Raleigh from Pipes and Cigars in an effort to find a more strait forward plane tobacco and burley tasting blend. I plan to make a final decision on what to smoke regularly between Carter Hall, Prince Albert, and Sir Walter Raleigh. However, I will always have a healthy respect and admiration for Carter Hall. Its like spending time with an old Friend you've known for a long time. Again, Hats off to Pipes and Cigars for their superior quality, selection, and service.
