Too Much Trouble - Too Little Return
Sweet Cask has a pleasant enough taste, but I will not buy again. It burns hot and I cannot tame it. I tried smoking it in various briars and cobs and have come to the conclusion that it is just not worth it for me. I even took one man's suggestion and tried rubbing it to break it up better so it would burn better, still needs plenty of relights and continues to burn hot. There are much better burleys to pursue.

Good for blending.
A bit too mild on it's own, and not very sweet. However I have really been enjoying it mixed 50/50 with Smoker's Pride Black Cavendish (or Lane BCA). I would recommend that the casing on this tobacco be revisited and improved. Not very smokable on its own.

Smokes Too Hot Initially
This tobacco has potential however, let it dry by taking the top off for a few days to dry it. Initially it smokes much too hot due to excess moisture. When it dries some I am certain it will be fine however. My favorite is tinned Macanudo and I will go back to that in due course.

Russ did outstanding yet again!
I'm blown away, I never got the opportunity to try Sugar Barrel, but I read the reviews and set out to find a copy. This is amazing! I love it and I'm going to start keeping at least one tub at all times now. Russ you did amazing I can't wait to try more of the mid town series!

Sweet Cask
Meh... boring burley. Nothing sweet, touch of cinnamon. Close to the original if that's what your after. An all day kinda smoke .... other otc out there better. Tried this in my relentless search for the late Chief Catoonah's Sugar Hallow.... give my left arm for that back.

Sweet cask tobacco
Very smooth tobacco , I like it and will last a while. The other tobacco the butternut is also a good smoke just wish is was. A little cheaper and came in a bigger container. The tobacco is great.

Sweet cask
Its been a while since i smoked the sugat barrel but i recal it to be much sweeter and the cut was more cube cut while this version lack in sweetness and the cut is rough. Room note is of tobacco and nothing more to write about. The price was good though but that does not justify me buying it again

As Compared To...
I actually have some real Sugar Barrel at home. The real Sugar Barrel should never have been discontinued. It is slightly sweet and not pretentious at all. It's a wonderful blend that's simple and straight forward, not to mention bite free. Sweet Cask is pretty close. It gets closest when smoked in a corn cob and when that's the only blend you smoke in the corn cob. I find myself enjoying it quite a bit but lamenting on the days when I could get the real thing. I don't think the real Sugar Barrel was necessarily any better than Sweet Cask but hey Sugar Barrel is the only Sugar Barrel. This is an alternative, quite good and rates 4 stars for getting me close to home.

Customer Testimonials
Tried an oz of this, and glad I only bought an ounce. Huge chunks, very little flavor. Not for me.
Never had sugar barrel, wish i had but it was gone before i took up a pipe. This was just a grasp at what i thought I was missing based on the loyal following it had during its life. The appearance is about as close to bark mulch as i think pipe tobacco could get. This is just my own weird observation and is not meant to be a negative. Aroma, to me, was buttered toast with a bit of sugar. light and pleasant. Mine was very dry upon delivery, dont know that this was a bad thing either. I tried it out of the bag, as well as re-hyrdated. Honestly, the dryer version was more pleasant. Lights fine, burns nice. The chunks slow down the burning pace so the fact that is looks like bark mulch is a good thing! No discernible sweetness, just an up-front light tobacco flavored smoke. Light and wispy, easy to get along with. Mixed it with some Gawith Black Irish X plug. That stuff straight is too much for me, it helps lighten up the punch while not intruding into the plug's dark fired glory. I liked it both on its own and blended with some other more powerful leaf. can i compare it to sugar barrel of old? Nope. Do i enjoy it as a straight-foward smoke or a good blender? Yep. Would i hesitate to buy a tub of it? for $20? Nope. But with the impression left and the price point ill be trying the other midtown series.
Got a Tub of this today and what a GREAT SMOKE this is! Smoked it in a Cob, Meer, and Briar and all were great. Smooth, mild, and just a hint of sweetness. All day blend in my opinion. Russ, "You Da Man"...
Like this one a lot, quickly becoming a permanent part of my tobacco rotation. It's simple burley with a little Virginia an all-day smoke that burns well. Love the cut it's a thicker rough cut that stays lit longer/easier so if you're a slow puffer no relights needed.
Great old school smoke-exactly as I remember.
I have never smoked sugar barrel, so I can't compare. The tin I got was very dry and had little flavor. Maybe this is normal for the style. I doubt if I would buy it again since this series has so many other good tobaccos to buy.
I like it! A little different cut than what I am use to. Very earthy pure tobacco taste, mild and not overwhelming. Tastes old school. Nice switch up from other aromatics. I recommend giving it a try.
