The Prince is BACK!
So glad that P&C are once again hosting HRH Prince Albert. Couldn't be found anywhere for the last several months. My grandfather smoked it, and the aroma brings back memories. Mild, a little chocolatey, smooth burning. I love this stuff! The "matches" and clones were OK, but not like the real deal. Super every-day smoke.

My desert island tobacco. Not
My desert island tobacco. Not necessarily my favorite or what I would consider the "best" pipe tobacco, but it's that I could smoke exclusively for the rest of my life and I would be perfectly fine with that. You can never go wrong with a bowl of Prince Albert - especially in a Missouri Meerschaum cob.

Have smoked Prince Albert for years. When it was unavailable for several months recently I tried numerous other tobaccos. I had to mix and blend since none of them adequately describe the actual tobacco and none were actually very good. Thank goodness PA is back. James

Bringing home the past
Just received and tried my 1st purchase of Prince Albert. It immediately brought my grandfather back to me, all the wonderful memories of being on his farm and spending summers fishing , winters hunting with him and his almost constant lit pipe filled with Prince Albert. As for the tobacco it's self , I really am enjoying the cool smoke and flavor and can see it being an all day enjoyment.

I finally let him out!
I purposely avoided OTC brands throughout my first 3 years of piping. I am glad to see this PA was back in stock and received my first tub in the mail today. Out of the can it smells like boozy tobacco. Tastes nothing like that though. Its very straight forward, mild, simple, slightly sweet, the perfect blend for simple times. Carter Hall is next on my list. This is not an aromatic tobacco, but the room note is very pleasant!

Discontinued
I have discovered that this tobacco has been discontinued. Tragic indeed. I have a remaining 1.5 oz can of Prince albert (unused), and two packages of cherry vanilla 1.5 oz each (unopened). If interested please contact me at [email protected]

Not an exact match..
Not an exact match to Prince Albert, but pretty close. IMHO Prince Albert has a more pronounced cocoa flavor than this does, and this is ribbon cut while PA is cross cut. This burley blend is a great smoke on its own, and is definitely worth a try, especially since Middleton has been having supply issues getting product to market.
5 out of 5
Different smokes for different folks
P.A. had always been my favorite for over 70 years and now it is not available. I have called Middleton to see if they are going to produce it , but can't get a straight answer. I really miss the Prince and trying many other blends, but none compare to P.A. in my opinion. What a shame if another American classic bites the dust.

Similar but different than Prince Albert
The pluses. This is a very tasty tobacco. As a 20 year Prince Albert smoker it is similar, but different, like your wife using your mothers recipe, it does not quite come out the same. Smooth burning with little bite as an all day smoke. This does not have as stems like you will occasionally find in Prince Albert. Now for the negatives.This is a ribbon cut, so you have to pack it differently than Prince Albert. There is a learning curve, with relights more often required especially in smaller bowl pipes. I would definitely purchase again as a change from Prince Albert or should Prince Albert go the way of the chorded telephone and Gillette trac two razor blades, in other words, discontinued.

Complexly simple!
Outstandingly simple. It isn't anything complex but that's what makes this so nice. I have already decided that this will be permanently in my rotation. I almost don't want anything else now! I could seriously have this for the rest of my life and I would be completely satisfied!

I have smoked a lot of tobacco From Cheep to expentive
I always come back to Prince Albert. Great all day smoke. No Bite. And great price.
4 out of 5
It's a Draw
Both of these are in my daily tobacco rotation. Albert is slightly nuttier, and ready to load. Andrew takes a little prep and drying time. That's the biggest difference for me, both are worthwhile burley blends at a good price.

The old standby.
Tasty, simple and consistent. My all-day smoke. Nutty, mild with a touch of sweetness. As much as I enjoy small batch and boutique blends, Prince Albert is what satisfies me, day in and day out. If you're a burley fan and haven't tried it, give it a shot. It wouldn't have stuck around for over a century if it wasn't good stuff.

Nice flavor (from a newbie)
Bought it mainly for the canister. My mother has an old metal Prince Albert tin that she uses for buttons. Bought this to have the metal canister. However, as a newbie to pipe smoking, I enjoy the flavor, and it is very forgiving, while you learn to pack your pipe.

All day smoke
I've only been smoking for a couple of years, always trying new blends. I've found alot that I like but this is the 1at that I would say is my all day smoke. It's so mild and subtle while the price is so economic. Love it!

He's been smoking it for decades. I prefer a shag cut, but have enjoyed it with him many times over many years. If you have PA in the can, Let Him Out :)!

it's ok
would love to have a pipe tobac that isn't laced with all the added chemicals. everything I buy has a sameness to them and most burn hot. the industry is stuck with Federal reg.s so we end up with inferior pipe tobac.

Review Prince Albert...Seriously???
Another website with tens of thousands of members did a survey a few years ago and PA won hands down. Many of its members were so outraged that this simple old downhome burley could out score the fine tobaccos from the worlds leading sellers they forfeited their membership! In fact, I have drifted through literally hundreds of blends over the past fifty years and some I loved and many I didn't. Some I buy on a regular basis and some molder away in my cellar but when I get confused about what I really enjoy in my pipe I always go back to that big red canister of Prince Albert to reset my taste buds and remind me of why I started smoking a pipe in the first place. No frills. Just an easy packing, slow burning, stay lit, no bite, no after taste tobacco .

Pretty sure that Prince A. is now my daily smoke. Good Burly tobacco taste. NO Bite!

New Favorite
I really love the cut, long strings of tobacco is much better then the cross cut you see in other brands which when the can is running low it is almost dust. This has become my new favorite over Prince Albert. More brands should go for the longer cut and get rid of their cross cut machines.

Good everyday smoke
First time trying Prince Albert and it's a good all day smoke. Mild flavor with no bite, but I find it burns faster than Captain Black Copper which is my usual pipe tobacco. Still a well rounded tobacco that I'd purchase again.

Prince Albert 14 oz. Can 10 star 🌟 excellence!!
Prince Albert is a nicely branched hold her mellow cross cut tobacco that has me thinking about it more than talking 👄. I must say, every once in a while I think I have a very good fix on this, for some l nd of review, but it just isn't it....every time I try to put it down 3-4 more things come up after that....but in short it's a very exalted mild smoke with all the recharge a smoker wants Plus the most balanced flavor ever smoked, with a flavor that starts excellent and grows until the last bit of fresh smoke is burned but it also has 1 1/2 back Plus crutch support that lasts better and longer during that first bowl to needed second bowl of the day, without bothering the smoker at all!!

Pure Tobacco no frills
I am a Kentuckian and spent many days working in Tobacco. Prince Albert smells and tastes like Kentucky burley thats been air cured in the barn and stuck straight into a pipe like we used to do back then. Just a pure Kentucky Burley taste which has somewhat of a chocolate flavor. WARNING....must be smoked cool and slow to get the flavor. Even though it smokes easy and doesnt bite much it wont have much flavor if you smoke it to hot. Just because there is no bite doesnt mean your not smoking to hot to get the flavor. If your getting a " ashtray" flavor then slow down and let cool. Smoke very slow and cool and that chocolate flavor will come out

Prince Albert
I have tried several different types of types of pipe tobacco. But I always comeback to Prince Albert. Why? Because it is an easy smoking pleasant aroma tobacco.

Prince Aandrew
Mild, mellow, and more pleasant than my "go to standard," Sir WalterRaleigh. The Midtown version of this old favorite is better than the original version, and I definitely will buy it again.

My lifelong friend
PA must have a magnet in the mix because it keeps drawing me back. I've tried so many blends (can't count them all) over 50 years and the Prince always seems to be my go-to smoke. It's just a simple, down-to-earth, real tobacco with no frills or added come-ons and always delivers the same smooth, flavorful, bite-free anytime bowl. To me, it's not much when you first light it, but it gets better and better deeper in the bowl. PA is THE classic pipe tobacco.

Easy to pack, stays lit, little bite, nice nutty flavor. Try it in a churchwarden for a cool smoke.

This is a simple pipe tobacco that has stood the test of time. It's tobacco for when you want to just lite it and smoke. Nothing fancy just a good smoke. It has become my go to tobacco.

Needs improvement...
Having gotten most of the way through the can, I feel confident in writing a review. This stuff is unbearably moist for the week or two after the seal is broken. As such, it bites the tongue something terrible...my tongue still feels like 48-grit sandpaper. It burns to a powdery black ash and leaves a lot of goopy carbon deposits in its wake. Worst of all, of the several blends I've smoked over the years, this one is far and away the most difficult to keep alight. Though it does have a good nutty Burley flavor, I get no cocoa notes. If the cut was a little finer and the casing toned down, it would vastly improve. But if it continues in its present state, I won't be buying any more.

Ray Mocarsky
I received this tub about 5 weeks ago and at first it was very aggressive. It burned and bit horribly. I regretted having bought it. So I let it sit for 3 weeks, occasionally fluffing it by hand to air it out somewhat. I tried a bowl. Still hot. Not fun. Each week I tried a bowl on the weekends. Getting less and less hot and harsh. After week 5, it has reached its perfection point. My, my, my . . . how it has changed with maturity. Prince Andrew is a fine, satisfying smoke be it in cob or briar; I have not yet tried it in meerschaum. It is my first experience with receiving tobacco that had to be mellowed; Lane 1Q and HGL are good to go but this stuff has to be broken in, much like a pipe itself. While the above mentioned can get to be sorta like having pecan pie for a main course, (overly rich) Prince Andrew is subtle, satisfying, and not too much of a good thing. A good, mellow smoke. And my wife says she can barely smell it, but when she does, it is not unpleasant. Ray Mocarsky

My favorite so far
Burns slow, right amount of harshness, good smoke output, and taste amazing. About the only complaint I can even think of is it's picky the way you pack it. I barely pack this stuff and it still burns forever.
4 out of 5
P.s.
P.s. I hope Pipes and Cigars makes this available in bulk. There's no telling how many Prince Albert cans I have bought and discarded when empty. P and C does have a bulk tobacco called Prince Albert Match, but when I sampled it, I found it to be well off the mark.
4 out of 5
Pleasant. Try it.
Who is/was Prince Andrew? Never mind. It a pleasant tobacco, slightly milder and and maybe a little sweeter than Prince Albert. Both are flavored with cocoa. When I opened the plastic can of Albert, the cocoa aroma was very strong. Missing from Andrew is the hint of Turkish evident in Albert. To make a closer match to Albert, leave the can open for a few days to allow cocoa vapors to dissipate. Mix 9 parts of Andrew with 1 part Blended Turkish Ribbon. Pip pip, jolly good show, old bean.

The Prince has been rescued!
I have tried most of the drug store blends: Half and Half, Carter Hall, Prince Albert, etc. I enjoy Virginia and English blends; but, as a young husband and Dad I can't bring myself to purchase them except on occasion (as bad as I want to). I needed to find something I could buy a lot of for cheap. I thought I was home with Prince Albert until I found out about the extras they put in him (not good for you). I also noticed Prince Albert would change on me, mid way or towards the end of my bowl. I would get a chemical taste (similar to cheap gas station cigars). You won't find that here. This is by far the highest grade tobacco I have handled. It also has what I loved about PA, no fuss. It just delivers. A solid bed of daily comfort, for those of us who need it. Honestly, the room note is nice as well. It reminds me of everything I love: Grandpas, Grandmother's warm dessert, good conversation. It also brings with it a gentle manliness. It's what I would imagine Dr. Grabow smoking...on his North Carolina porch on a summer evening. Obviously, you can tell I like it. If you enjoy PA, you will love this. Thank you, Russ.
5 out of 5
Perfect and simple.
I always have Prince Albert on hand, it's an old favorite that I have smoked for as long as I have smoked a pipe. I have a whole cellar of expensive tobacco, but this is my mainstay. I love a couple bowls of PA first thing in the morning in my favorite cob with my coffee. Its simple, cool burning, easy to light and keep lit and completely bite free. It has that nutty burley taste, lightly sweet with hints of cocoa and possibly anise and scratches that itch for a clean tobacco taste.
5 out of 5
My first smoke every morning
This is straight burley done up in the classic American style, and it is an amazing smoke. I smoke prince Albert at least once or twice a day, sometimes it is the only blend I smoke all day. There are nutty and cocoa flavors that come naturally from the tobacco, in my opinion the halfway point of the bowl is where it really becomes a sweet, rich smoke. There are no bells and whistles here, if you are a burley fan you will probably enjoy it, but I am of the opinion that a cob full of prince Albert Albert Albert huge cup of coffee is a good way to start the day

Definitely NOT Prince Albert...
Stronger, harsher, more crudely cut. hotter burning, less-appreciated room note than with Prince Albert, this is STILL a very enjoyable smoking tobacco! Whenever I feel the need for a pipeful of PRINCE ALBERT WITH AN ATTITUDE, I turn to Prince Andrew!

A real Prince!
While it won't knock Sir Walter Raleigh off of the OTC Burley throne, this Prince ain't half bad... in fact it's real good! A close PA match and a good example of an old codger burley.

Hello, Prince Albert is a "OK" pipe smoke. Still looking for an old favorite called Union Leader. Will keep looking till I find anything close to it. All the guys who mix pipe tobacco could do allot worse. The off the wall mixes are a waste of time! Paul

Good basic smoking tobacco!
Mild, smooth, no bite, light and good burley flavor. Moderate mic hit. Great for my first morning smoke, great for rolling the occasional ciggerette. Perfect in a cob. I always keep some on hand!

You can take it in the pouch or you can take it in the can. Smoke Prince Albert like a man.

Almost a dead ringer for Prince Albert! The flavor and the nicotine hit is a little light but ok.

Not Great but not too bad

An American icon deserving of its legendary status
This one's a classic for good reason! Nothing too complicated here. The Prince is an easygoing smoke in every sense: easy to light, easy to keep lit, easy on the palate, and gentle with the nicotine. There are few pipe tobaccos I can confidently say I'd be able to smoke all day, every day without getting bored, getting bitten, or getting sick. Prince Albert is one of them! A must-try for every new smoker, and a warm companion for the experienced piper.

When all else seems too harsh, too mundane - Prince Albert always satisfies.

Still the same quality as I remember when my grandfathers smoked the Prince. It would have gotten 4 - 5 stars if it can in a metal can instead of a plastic one.

Pleasant flavor, and it burns very evenly. This tobacco is passive and not as flavorful as Carter Hall, but that might be agreeable to some.

Legacy to Burn
Mr. R. J. Reynolds named Prince Albert after Queen Victoria's son, who changed his name to George VI when he became king of England. Prince Albert was introduced in 1907. It was (one of?) the first tobaccos to be cured with licorice. Licorice contains a substance which is 50 times as sweet as sugar. It takes the bite out of tobacco. In 1913, R.J. Reynolds revealed that Prince Albert, like the Camel cigarettes that were introduced that year, has three constituent tobaccos: Piedmont Bright, a flavored and sweetened Burley from Kentucky, and 10% Turkish leaf. The flavoring contains cocoa. On opening the tub, one can smell the cocoa, but it is not obvious in the smoke. There is good reason why Prince Albert has been a favorite for over a century. It burns well to a fine ash. It is a pleasant, flavorful, and bite-free smoke that is neither overbearing nor cloying. Accept no substitute.

Still a great smoke!
Have enjoyed many aromatic blends purchased here at P&C. For 25 years my old standby is the Prince! My wife never has warmed to the aroma ( you know how wives are!) but it's really one of the only non-biting tobaccos I've ever smoked on a regular basis.......

I just want to say that I have a completely new respect and admiration for Prince Albert. In my search of the best otc burley, this has to be the best hands down! I admit I gave the prince a try when I first began smoking a pipe, and dismissed it as okay. However, after smoking half and half and carter hall, I decided to revisit Prince Albert as half and half was way too sweat for me, and carter hall was a good all around tobacco with some burley, it was still a bit sweet. I tried Sir Walter Raleigh, and found it too be a great otc burley, but still a bit too sweat for me. I purchased several 1.5 oz pouches from my local convenience store. How surprised I was upon retrying Prince Albert. I had finally found the nonsweat burley I had been searching for. Upon figuring I wanted this as my steady all day smoke, I promptly ordered a 14 oz tin. I found that it taste even better out of the tin than the 1.5 oz pouch. This is my newly found favorite burley and will probably remain so. The only acception is the Cornell and Diehl Big and Burley I smoke in the evenings for an even bigger burley experience.

Good, But Not Even Close To Prince Albert
While it is a good smoke with better quality tobacco, it lacks that wonderfully smooth Prince Albert top flavor. To my taste it s not a good enough substitute in its present formulation. Until or unless P&C reformulates, my advice would be to stick with the original. Come on P&C, you can do better than that, it is so easy to fix!
