Customer Reviews of “Best of the Rest Pipe Tobacco”
Very good, I have ordered this a few times and have not been disappointed. Plus, the mixes are always a nice surprise.
JW of Sappington, MO
I'm very happy with the bag I got. The flavor is excellent, it packs nicely, and stays lit. I won't hesitate to buy it again and see what I get.
RR of Drummond, MI
$14.95 per pound!!! I just received a pound of Best of the Rest. Not a bad mixture and for the price, I will purchase a pound or two with all of my future orders.
KB of Memphis, TN

MF of Mount Ida, AR
Just received my first Best of the Rest order! A pleasant aroma when I opened the bag, nothing really standing out maybe a hint of vanilla. Using it to break in my new Falcon pipe that I received with this order. So far it has been most enjoyable, packs easily, stays lit and burns down to a nice white ash. Will be ordering more!
JK of San Bernardino, CA
A very good, if a bit generic, tobacco. Smokes incredibly smooth with zero tongue bite. The room note is unoffensive. It is a light aromatic with a very slightly sweet taste. Would absolutely recommend for anyone who is just starting out with pipe smoking and wants to get the hang of it before trying much more expensive and finicky blends.
TP of Chantilly, VA
Surpisingly even. A little of this and a little of that seems to balance the flavors out nicely, if you're an epicurean with butterfly-like appetites like me. If your mantra is "variety is the spice of life" then give this a try. Nice thing is, no two batches are the same. At this price you have very little to lose and lots to trade away.
BC of Venice, CA
I got either pink lemonade or cotton candy. It's good.
DG of Trenton, NJ
First let me say I am happy for those who have received wonder blends as the reviews say. My expereince had been different. Never, ever again will I buy this stuff. I've bought it twice and both times it was aweful. I know the old saying holds true, "You get what you pay for". Even at this low price it is not worth the money to me
SB of Clarkson, KY
This stuff is nice. a cheap way to fill up your "I'm too broke to buy more tobacco, at least I have this" cellar. It smokes well and is different every time you order. a good bang for your buck.
AG of West Valley City, UT
I'm going to stock up, if your looking for a great smoke either for all day, morning, afternoon or evening, this is one to have on hand all the time. Smooth, no bite, great room note, awesome taste. Its just like Forest Gump said: its like a box of chocolates, you don't know what you'll get, its all good. I hope they keep it going and the price is GREAT.
AF of Nancy, KY
Varies but generally very good. Good value!
RR of San Diego, CA
Blend varies but the best value for quantity.
LF of Eldorado, IL
I decided to try a pound of this stuff with my second pipes & cigars order. I'm new to pipe smoking, and have only smoked aromatics, and some Christmas cheer. When I got this package in the mail it smelled so spicy that I literally had to take it to the garage because it was giving me a headache. I considered giving it away, but decided to jar it and see what a little time would do. I came back 5 months later, and it is great! The overwhelming Perique or Latakia or whatever it was, has really mellowed out. It's now one of my favorites. I can't believe I was going to get rid of it. I'm looking forward to buying another pound and seeing what kind of surprise I'm in for.
AL of Marietta, OK
I have bought two pounds of this. The first pound was kinda like lane 1Q with some latakia thrown in and I liked it. A good everyday smoke and good to blend with. The second pound I just received smells amazing and tastes like rum with hints of chocolate, burns white, no bite..very good.
DD of waldron, AR
Not bad, but a little rough.
An okay blend, once it dries for a few days. I stick to Latikia, and I was expecting at least some in my "off the countertop left-overs," but the label that says "Best of the Rest" was stuck over another sticker that read "Aromatic Blend".....not my first choice. If I would have known I was getting a straight aromatic blend, I would have passed it up, not saying that I didn't expect a lot of scraps to be aromatic, just not the Whole bag. Overall, not a bad smoke, and very flavorful......but I do feel like I was possibly given the wrong product, just relabeled and moved off the shelf.
WB of Braselton, GA
Good value. Always a different variety.
GL of Henderson, NV
I'm sure the upcoming holiday has a lot to do with the mixture I received, but I am really pleased with my order. It arrived very moist and needed some drying time, it had a wonderful aroma and minimal relights. I will not be afraid to order this on a regular basis.
MW of Piketon, OH
What a fantastic deal! I am about to order my second pound.
CJ of Martinsville, IN
well I think stuff taste like a cigar did not like the taste at all.
JH of Gainesville, GA
This is a great tobacco for me since I like Aromatic and English blends. This smokes with a lot of flavor since the Aromatic blends fall short on the flavor side. Burns well to the bottom and stays lit. This is great with a cold beer. Will order a pound next time.
DC of Cameron Park, CA
It is a overall good blend the room note well don't know at all I'm not allowed to smoke in the house. My wife don't want me to smoke in the house. Some she doesn't care about most of the time it I need to go outside. For the price one can't go wrong to stock up and can always trade for something better or add to it to make the taste better.
OS of Garland, TX
I dont know what to say about this one. When I 1st opened it it smelled like crap. So I put it up until I needed a smoke. To my surprise the tobaccos' great. Now that being said I might have just got lucky but with the price I say just try and see what you get.
BG of Brewerton, NY
I like my bag. Overtones of liquor and fruit but nothing specific jumps out at you. Then in the background you pick up a little spice, some smokiness. Smokes good. Tastes good. Keeps getting better the longer it sits in the jar. Wife always comments on the aroma when I smoke a bowl. Thumbs up.
MM of Metropolis, IL
Not bad, batch I got mostly a Virginia, burley, and cavendish blend with a bit of cherry, but at the same time not like straight cherry. Very pleasant room note. Smoked slow in a meerschaum, didn't have any bite. Usually use a cherrywood but figured I'd use a different one in case it came up a bit moist. I put it in a jar and I'll revisit it in a week or so. I'll order again in a month or two, if it's drastically different I'll jar it again, if similar I'll combine them and intersperse it with others for variety. Price is right, I didn't have any objections with it.
EB of Eden, NY
Ordered some knowing the variable nature, aromatic with a decent amount of Cherry, but of more underlying complexity than a drugstore blend. Little bite though somewhat moist. Would make a decent blend for daily use if you enjoyed an aromatic. Put it in a jar and I'll revisit it in a week or two.
EB of Eden, NY
Like to see a little more gold colored tobacco, but overall A+
KK of Fort Pierce, FL
When I first tasted my bag of Best of the Rest I thought it was so weird that I couldn’t smoke it. I smoked it the next time and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed the flavors in it and the sweetness. I will buy it again.
