You won’t regret this purchase
I had purchased this best of the rest tobacco two years ago. I was low in funds but still purchased it. When it first arrived it was really harsh and appeared to be cheap tobacco so I set it aside leaving it in the original packaging for two years-long and forgotten. I did some closet decluttering, came across the bag decided to open it up, surprisingly it was moist so I loaded my bowl and was amazed on the nutty and raisin scent especially since I didn’t properly store it in a mason jar. You will not regret this purchase even more so if you properly store it. The burn is smooth, no bite and undoubtedly satisfying! I was an aromatic type of guy until now.

Best of the Rest
The tobacco was fine, but a little dry.

Best of the best!
Rather than thinking of this as a cheap substitute for a good tobacco, try it. You will find that it isn't the "best of the rest", but in fact is the best of the best!

Prefer the regular best of the rest
It is a nice English blend, but I prefer the Best of the Rest regular. Hope to be able to order some again soon as it is out of stock for awhile now.

Quality blend, as always from PipesandCigars.
I order the regular Best of the Rest as my daily pipe but it was back ordered. I'm an all day smoker. This is a more aromatic, earthier smoke and very different than the original, closer to many of the store bought packs. This is chunkier and a little drier but burns good. I'll continue to buy the original but think I'll add a bag or two of this blend to my future orders.

Very plain
This was one of my worst purchases. I guess the saying you get what you pay for is true. This not only was very nondescript but had a bite to take your tongue off. Now I have to figure what I can mix it with to try and salvage my purchase so I am not out $25.

Excellent tobacco for the price. I like heavy English so I use this as a blending tobacco. I add more latakia and perique. Great smoke out of the bag. Very light bite. Burns to bottom of the bowl. May have to relight several times. This would be an excellent tobacco for a person wanting to try an English blend. Low room not. I highly recommend this tobacco.

Mellow blend that brings back a good memory
I was not sure quite what to expect when I opened this bag . I typically smoke English blends that are strong and loaded with Latakia. Thats not what this was. Upon opening the bag there was a subtle sweet aroma that represented itself. I was worried. But after smoking a few bowls over the past few days I am pleased with this blend of “the rest.” It is mild, has a hint of pepper, and yes, sweetness to it, but not too sweet. I always love a blend that brings back a memory or transports me somewhere. Like when I smoke Pirate Kake, I find myself in front of a Smokey fire in the forest. When I smoke this blend I find myself standing as a 5 year old in my grandfather’s old emporium he used to run. He passed away about 20 years ago, so this blend has now taken on a special place for me. Its strange who the brain stores sence experiences. I have not thought about that emporium for decades and would not have even been able to recall the smell. But once I lit this tobacco up it instantly came back to me, “Thats the smell of Granpa’s emporium.” I can tell you why the emporium smellled that way. Perhaps there was a pipe smoker in there one day and I got a good whiff of the smoke aroma. What ever it may be, I am grateful for the memory this blend bring back.

Fragrant, aromatic but burns a little 🔥and has some bite to it. Overall, a nice smoke and a good value

Very, very mild and sweet.
Well, it may be “best of the rest” but it ain’t the “rest of the best.” Very mild, maybe an all day smoke. Burns cool. Not tasking any of form of Latakia and there is a sweet aroma to it. Im a fan of of Pirate Kake, Night Cap, and Billy Budd so I’m not likely to order much of this in the future, if at all.

Mild English
As an English--pretty mild; nice latakia aroma and flavor, very little oriental that I could taste, but it had no bite. A nice room note if you are a pipe smoker, probably a yucky smell if you are not. All over, a nice, mild English blend at a great price.

Make your own choice.
Smokes ok but, drier than the regular and the overstated "nicotine is addicting" packaging seemed like government thinks we all dummies. Hope this does not offend anyone.

Some flavored in there
I love P&C and this was a fine purchase. The best of the rest is a great product and so I do not want to complain. But the pound I got has a bit of vanilla or other flavoring that was put in, on purpose or as an accident, its hard to say. But that flavor mixing with the latakia gives a great smoke something that I was not prepared for. I thought that this would be several Virginias and english blends mixed together without any aromatics in it as in the original Best of the Rest. It is totally worth the money and I'll smoke it.

Too mild and burns to quickly, although no bite.

Nice surprise with a bouquet of flavors
I am new to pipe bare with me. The initial scent out of the package was beefy like jerky. After lighting, the flavors were unexpected. There was an overall sweetness like granulated sugar that transformed into a sweet citrus like a Pixie Sticks or Tang; then to powdered sugar and back to granulated sugar. There was also notes of vanilla with occasional cherry. The lit tobacco had an odor of a nice cigar. Overall, I wasn't expecting the bouquet of flavors, but its a keeper and hard to beat the price to quantity ratio.

Great Buy
Very good tasting, and pleasant to the smell. Everyone in the room likes the aroma. There is no bite and is great for anytime of the day

Surprisingly Very Good
For a discount tobacco this stuff very good. Not to heavy on the latakia but you know it's there. There are a ton of latakia based blends out there and none of them can give you quality like this at such a low price. I'll reorder this forever. Exceptional value.

Buy something else!
This is the worst tobacco I have ever received from Pipes and Cigars. I have been smoking English for over 25 years and my 43 year old son for over 10 years. We both find that we can't smoke this stuff. It burns the inside of my mouth and tongue. It should be called "Bite of the Rest." I called about it and was told that my comments would be noted. Now they are.
