Bull Run tobacco
Like this tobacco very much. Smooth and burns good. Having been use it for over 2 years, but a few times Pipes&Cigars runs out of inventory.

Very smooth
Best of the Brigadier Black I have tried so far. I especially like larger tins as they sealed well and very easy to open.

I bought a can of this 2 years ago. I'd give an exact date, but that info has been wiped from the P&C Order History... Anyway, I just opened it. This is a FANTASTIC SMOKE - As is the ALAMO.

Buy a couple of cans!
I bought this in the 8 oz can without any high hopes or expectations. It's the sleeper surprise of the decade. Definitely an absolute aromatic with zero hint of English. Fantastic room note little or no bite and easy to smoke to the very draw hole of the bowl. A little wet at first opening, but an easy fix, aired about half of the can in a wooden bowl for a few hours the remixed it with the remainder of the can and ..... Near perfection.

Not bad, I like black Cavendish better, with a vanilla or chocolate note

It is a mild to moderately tasting tobacco.
I liked this tobacco and more importantly my wife appreciates the room note. It smokes down dry a fine gray ash. It has a pleasant taste of tobacco and chocolate/vanilla aroma.

Good Tobacco Blend
Being fond of vanilla blends, I've given a number of different versions a whirl. Brigadier will see me coming back for more Bull Run. Not a strong vanilla but overall a good quality tobacco blend at a reasonable price. One reviewer noted it tends to burn "fast", and agree it does. Nevertheless, it doesn't burn too "hot."

Faint Hint of Vanilla.
I bought this on a whim, and it is a good smoke, but when the description says hint of Vanilla, that is what it is. Just a very light hint. This is a good tobacco at a good price, but if the lingering vanilla is your main reason for the purchase, you may be disappointed. There are better vanilla blends, but I am not sorry I purchased it. Smokes well in my Missouri Corncob.

Good Balance
Not as "vanilla" as I was expecting, but still a very good quality aromatic

Simply good tobacco. Smooth but not too light. Good anytime blend. A lot of Virginia but still produces a great cloud of smoke with a pleasant room note.
Customer Testimonials
Very pleasant tin note upon opening. It has a light vanilla taste, not overwhelming, but the room note is distinctly vanilla. No bite, suitable for all day. Good cheap smoke.
Wow this stuff is amazing. I open the can all the time just to smell the tantalizing mixture but wait till you smell it burn. Absolutely outstanding in every way. You cannot go wrong here.
Ordered some last fall. Opened it May 23. Although I am not a fan of most aromatic blends, the tin note was very pleasant. The tobacco tasted good. To me it was a nice dry smoke, did not burn hot or bite or require relighting. This blend is heading for the top of my rotation. Good stuff and nice price.
Great tobacco. Buying another pound. Smokes great in a wide Trevi.
Very nice vanilla flavor, did not burn hot at all. Flavor was not overpowering at all. Reminded me of the local B&M house type blend. Room note was very pleasant. For a basic vanilla aromatic, no complaints. However, I think that Mac Baren Vanilla is a better taste and room note.......but for the price, this is very good smoke
I just received my tin of Bull Run moments ago in the mail, and like a little kid at Christmas, I cracked it open. At first whiff, it smells pretty nice. So I loaded my pipe and lit the chimney. After reading the description, I was expecting a bit more of a Vinilla flavor - couldn't really pick up on any whatsoever. Also, there is a bit more bite than I'm used's kinda harsh. It's not the worst I've ever smoked, but I will go back to my Captain Black without hesitation after the tin is empty.
This turned into my new favorite tobacco, it has a beautiful tin aroma and tastes very good.
Very good aromatic at a great value will be stocking up on this.
My main sin has been alteranting pinch-pack of Frog Morton Cellar & SPS Molto Dolce, starting with the Cellar (which is dryer) to catch the moisture leaching from the Molto Dolce. This Frankenstein blend gives me a good smoke with a lot going on. I've been wanting to try the Brigadier Blacks for a while and I finally went with the Bull Run. It has a sort of velvety taste - Imagine a 50/50 mix of vanilla & chocolate pudding. I'm not disappointed. Packs good and burn evenly. Only one ash purge and spike it before the relight (after the initial ... & tap) usually is all that's necessary. However, it burns and smokes quick, too quick = almost like smoking a cigarette. I've been using my MO Meerschaum Ozark Hardwood Cherry Bent, filtered, w/Danish Replacement Stem. I found that I get a better, longer smoke in my MO Meerschaum Country Gentleman, unfiltered, w/Walker Briar Works 4-3/4” Mini Churchwarden Stem. TL/DR = This is some good stuff!
Very nice tobacco at a reasonable price.
A nice blend that is similar to the Alamo blend, but a little sweeter. Good stuff!
