Daughters & Ryan Athey

This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

Daughters & Ryan's Athey is a unique tobacco with an intriguing flavor. Top quality bright Virginias are used to make this blend, with no other condimental leaf, What sets D&R's Athey apart from  every other blend is a three-layer top note. The first is a deeply sweet molasses flavor, applied lightly, Next, a Scotch whisky essence is added, along with a faintly floral botanical. At no time does the top dressing mask the naturally sweet goodness of the premium flue-cured tobaccos.

I like it as a quality tobacco. It seems a little harsher now I've tried again years later though.

Scotch and Soda--the song, the drink, and now the tobacco
Athey is a favorite of mine. Excellent quality Virginia with a sweet undernote and strong Scotch Whisky top. It is a great tasting blend. Maybe not an all day smoke but a good end of day pipe, At the price it is amazing. It is a well integrated blend. There has to be a good amount of Scotch in this tobacco. Moister than most D&R offerings. Very cool smoke.

Whack for my daddy-o...
Athey is a delightful treat. It has the distinction of being the most heavily cased whiskey smelling blends I've ever tried. The aroma wafting from the tin smells like an glass of Scotch! It is almost too strong, but I like it. It's a Virginia blend and with its casing it must be sipped or it'll turn hot and harsh in a hurry, but I still like it. The flavor is just great. I can't even say I taste the Virginias, but I don't care, it's still good. I can't even say I call it an aromatic. For all the aroma and flavor, it's not wet or moist, and certainly not sticky. It's a nice soft ribbon cut that takes a flame fine. I prefer it in a small bowl pipe, so I guess I smoke it as I would an aromatic, but it behaves more like a VA blend should. It's nice. I never could detect the floral essence or molasses, but they probably effect the overall taste making it as unique as it is. Fans of whiskey aromatics, or the like, deserve to give Athey a try. I hope this helps.

Light and bright
Athey is a light tasting tobacco, but there is also a taste of what I call 'brightness' - for lack of a better word. It tastes like a small amount of menthol and fruitiness blended and waved over the tobacco. It is almost imperceptible. I always keep this tobacco on hand to 1.) smoke by it self - which is a very light taste, or 2.) blend with other tobacco that I want to lighten. (Ryback Gold is the tobacco I use to intensify taste.)

I blend this with 1/3 part picayune for an exceptional rolled cigarette. By itself it is very nice and suitable for more tastes. It is definitely unique. I think the cooling sensation is just enough to make it a bit interesting, and I do not like menthol cigs. Definitely citrus, molasses hints, would not say hay. Does not burn throat (check your RH). Just enough throat hit, and this is coming from someone who felt like venguer platnium had a tad much throat hit, while windsail platinum and gawith hoggarth's virginia (neat, each) were too light.

Not for me
This was dry and like RYO cigarette tobacco. Mild but no taste. I may use it to tone down some stronger cavendish.

So refreshing
An intriguing blend. Fresh, good tobacco flavor with a hint of ... what? Not menthol, not mint, something else. A profoundly different smoke. I only RYO and this is something special. It gives you the refreshing cool of a menthol but without the overwhelming, cloying menthol effect. Mind you, it is NOT menthol. It is an ingenious, satisfying tobacco blend that is bright and light while being a satisfying smoke. I don't know how they do it but it's great. I love every D&R blend that I have tried and while this is not to my particular taste it is still genius. Do yourself a favor and try D&R, find your blend and enjoy!
