Borkum Riff Bourbon Whiskey is a traditional Cavendish tobacco made of ripe, sweet Virginias and mellow Burleys, finished with the flavor of warm and tangy eight-year-aged Kentucky bourbon whiskey. Full of complex flavor from the tobacco combined with whiskey, a captivating taste and aroma appear in the Bourbon Whiskey tobacco. This Borkum Riff blend has been one of the most popular aromatics on P&C from day one, and it continues to be right at the top of our list.

Bought a few pouches at a retailer that was discontinuing Borkum Riff. It was OK but had a bit of bite.
My go to smoke for a long time. Nice flavor but has a little bite.
Sorry, can't agree with the positive reviews. Simply stated, it bites. Tried it in my estate La Scala briar, then a day later in my estate Nording. Still bites. Actually, by the finish it's not so bad, but by then maybe my nerve endings have just been sanded smooth. Threw out the pouch halfway through second bowl. And... she doesn't like the room note. Loser all around. I do like the Borkum Riff original, however. Nice start-to-finish for me, and her.
I JUST BOUGHT A POUCH OF BR BOURBON WHISKEY,NOT BAD AT ALL ,SMOOTH VERY LITTLE BIT,IM A BOURBON DRINKER SO IT GOES WELL TOGETHER,GIVE IT A TRY IT'S GOOD.
Thought I'd try a little BR Whiskey in my Missouri Meerschaum corn cob and let me tell you....Wow!!! Outstanding smoke with almost no tounge bite.
My late father was a lifelong pipe smoker, and Borkum Riff's Bourbon Whiskey was his brand. When I took up pipe smoking as an alternative to cigarettes, his tobacco was readily available, and so it quickly became my brand as well. It's a potent, aromatic, delicious blend that will leave the smoker with a wonderful aftertaste after smoking. I cannot overstate how strongly I recommend this to both long-time smokers and folks who are just getting started pipe smoking.
I was recommended Borkum Riff by the father of a good friend of mine. I recently branched out and tried their Bourbon Whiskey. It's got the right mixture of flavor. Its fuller than I am used to, I usually stick to the mild aromatics. But this is Great. If you are also a drinker, this compliments Makers Mark. Overall, i would recommend this blend.
