Engine No. 99 Tobacco !

A decent light smoke
Ok, this is a fairly solid blend. I want to give it 3 stars, but I've added an extra star because of how affordable it is. I'm smoking a bowl right now from my 1 ounce bulk sample. I'm disappointed with the blend because the flavor is a little bland, and to my tastes way too mild. Granted, I do prefer blends with heavy flavor, or a lot of flavor to put it another way. I'm not into toppings, and this tobacco doesn't have any to my knowledge, all natural. But man for the components that are in it, and the profile given by the website, I was expecting a heavier or more potent blend. To me this is a light latakia blend, and latakia takes the forefront, but just barely, which is fine. It has a very earthy smokey flavor, and when you really get it going just right, I would say the flavor is medium to maaaaybe medium heavy. I think what would really make this blend shine is if it had just a hint of sweetness. I think it would do well with considerable age on it. I probably won't order it again, because I think Hearth & Home 10 to midnight is a much tastier more refined option at basically the same price. I feel like this blend has a lot of potential, and maybe I should have tried it in a few different pipes to be fair before reviewing it but eh... It's good, definitely a great tobacco for the price. Just doesn't have any complexity or charm to me, a little bland. Don't let my review scare you, it's worth trying, and might fit your bill perfectly if you want something not too heavy but not too light.

I got it because I love Pirate Kake and was told it was similar. Good but not as good as Pirate Kake.

This is an awesome smoke. This has quickly become 1 of my favorite blends. A good strong English blend with a couple extra flavors.

Good stuff
Rich, redolent, heady. How I imagine the captain's cabin of an old square rigger in the East Indies trade would smell

Excellent tobacco full of interesting
Excellent tobacco full of interesting flavors. For me it tasted like slightly sweet, tangy, and smoky cocoa powder. No bite and full of flavor. This is my everyday english blend.

I love this blend. Latakia has a strong presence in the blend, but it does not overshadow the other components. I definitely get some Burley, Virginia, and Oriental as I smoke, not much Perique. Burns cool, no way it could bite. Its a nice change of pace in flavor that your typical English blend.

Arrived very dried out, not moist. Don't know if that is how the blend is since first time trying. Burns very quickly.

Great for pipe/cigar smokers alike!
As a cigar and pipe smoker, I Was anxious to try engine 99. It is very reminiscent of Kentucky fire cured cigars by Drew Estate Which I love, and is in my regular rotation. This will now be in my pipe regular rotation.

English blend perfection meets bulk pricing
I've been searching for a really good bulk English/Balkan blend to stock the cellar with and this is it. This blend is very similar to Hearth and Home Blackhouse with a very Latakia forward earthy campfire flavor that I personally can't get enough of. If you like English blends than you have to try this one. This blend matches it's great flavor with good manors with an effortless burn and no bite even when pushed. It probably won't win over any non-pipers with the room note but you will be too busy enjoying it to care!

my favorite blend so far
The tobacco smells perfect to me; latakia-forward smokiness. To me the room note is like God's Own Breath but non-pipers may think they are downwind of a campfire. I am tempted to give this 5 stars but I am just now returning to the briar after about 25 years away. Don't want to make any rash decisions. :-)

A new favorite
It's a great blend, with lots of complexity, that smokes best in a wide bowl. With a subtly sweet flavor, it's the lasted mixture in my regular rotation.

Lotta lat
Latakia forward blend with varying spice throughout the bowl. Very tasty. Not as smooth or creamy as other heavy lat blends like Russians, but not as pricey either. Since it is available in bulk, it is certainly worth a try for a lat lover. Not in my daily rotation but I certainly enjoy it a few times a week.

Serious competition
Move over Big English, Engine 99 might just have the right of way. Good complex heavy English. Smokey, thick, creamy and full. Big chunks and ribbons. Burns well. Tastes great. Cheap price. Are 'ya smokin' yet?
