Granger is a classic American Burley blend, using rich, ripe Kentucky Burley, that delivers smooth natural tobacco flavor with a moderate, pleasant aroma. This is certainly an all-day type of tobacco. Generation of pipe enthusiasts have kept some Granger on hand at all times, and once you try it, we think you'll want to as well.
My father smoked granger for years and now im carrying the torch.
I enjoy Granger. It has a nice nutty flavor and doesn't bite at all. I think it's right up there with Prince Albert, Carter Hall, Sir Walter Raleigh, etc. Will definitely try to keep some on hand from now on.
I really enjoy Burley tobaccos and this one is no different. However, it gives me cottonmouth like I've never had with any other Burley blends. The flavor and room note are nice, cottonmouth not so much. I may try it again in the future but for now, I'm passing.
Nice and fresh. At a good price compared to local pipe shop.
I first smoked Granger Pipe Tobacco about 45-50 years ago. It still has the fresh, sweet aroma I remember in the can and the smoke has the real, "undoctored" tobacco taste I love.
This is definitely what I remember a good ole USA pipe tobacco should taste and smell like. Not only good by itself but a good blending Burley as well. Granger is my go to everyday, don't have to think about, no nonsense tobac. And just a note: It is better now than in the past.
Perhaps I should begin with a disclaimer: I don't typically enjoy a very nutty burley. This is one of the reasons I enjoy Prince Albert when it comes to OTC's; mild, straightforward burley that you can smoke without really thinking about it. But when I was told that Granger was the meatier, fuller bodied PA, I was eager to at least give it a try it. Sadly, I was disappointed. To begin, this truly is a codger burley. You are getting what you would expect. Opening the tin releases an intense plum-like aroma that whets the appetite for what comes next. Upon the first light and tamp, I was greeted by an old fashioned smoky burley (as that is all there is). It lit well and burned steady. Unfortunately, this was a bit nutty for my taste, which reinforced my choice for PA if I'm smoking an OTC. But if that's your thing, you WOULD be in for a treat; that is, if it weren't for Granger's damning flaw--about three bowls in I started to recognize a strong taste of burning plastic the refused to quit. This remained for many bowls until I finally gave up. After some research, it seems to be an issue of quality control. For this reason, I can't recommend buying Granger. On a good day, Granger is a nutty, flavorful burley for a good price. But on a bad day, it tastes like melted down Tupperware that will leave you running for something to cleanse the palate.
