John Cotton's Double Pressed Dark Fired

John Cotton's Double Pressed Dark Fired brings the boldest blend yet to this storied brand. A flake made of dark-fired Kentucky from two continents gets completely tumbled out and allowed to breathe for weeks before it gets placed back into a press and turned into a crumble cake. This process makes the flavor richer and deeper, with more consistency. The result is robust tobacco that burns slowly and with an earthy and smoky character with just the right amount of sweetness for fantastic balance. John Cotton's Double Pressed Dark Fired is a hearty smoke that's great after a nice meal or for the last bowl of the day.

Hickory Smoked Goodness
Just recently got into dark fired tobaccos, and boy this is a good one. Tin note is like ketchup or a hickory heavy bbq sauce, exactly what I look for now. Definitely on the stronger end of things, but thats not saying much coming from the realm of aromatics myself. Goes with the territory as they say; I'll be snagging another tin

Strong and robust!
I blend it with a little aromatic to tone it down as it is ultra robust and smoky flavored as I expected it to be. If you like a really strong tobacco flavor, you can't go wrong!

A very pleasant surprise that I will be ordering again. When they say dark fired they mean it. It's a very rich deep smoke.

Strong, rich Kentucky
Not for the faint of heart…one of the stronger tobaccos out there but absolutely delicious. I see people comparing it to Old Dark Fired but it is closer to MacBaren Bold Kentucky or Gawith’s Dark Flake Unscented in taste and strength. Even though it hits like a freight train in the flavor and nicotine department, it is masterfully blended and maintains a wonderful balance of flavor between sweet and tang of the BBQ taste.

Smoke with respect
I’ve had many blends that pack a powerful vitamin N punch, but this one wins. After just a few puffs I found myself drifting off into space and it was some time before I realized what I was doing. Then asked myself, “wow... are they sure this is just tobacco?” No lack of flavor here. Smokey and a distinct BBQ aroma. Its a bit stronger than Cottoman’s Kentucky but not by all that much. Bottom line: if you’re searching for a HIGH vitamin N tobacco with plenty of flavor then this is absolutely it. However tread carefully. Not to be smoked with impunity!

Slow freight train
I bought this because I love the strength and spiciness of dark fired tobacco. My first few puffs were super smooth, with good and sweet tobacco flavor but I was waiting for the hit. A few minutes later I stood up and immediately needed to sit back down. This stuff REALLY delivers the strength in a smooth, delicious flavor.

Great Dark Fired Blend
This is very reminiscent of MacBarens Old Dark Fired. It has a nice strength to it. Lots of that lovely Dark Fired BBQ spice, dark fruity, and delicious. It is a great blend and very well made.

A Work Of Art
Possibly the finest and most carefuly presented tobacco with a flavor to match its beauty. Worthy of the top shelf!

Good smoke
This is a very flavorful and beautiful smoke. It tastes similar to MacBaren's HH Old Dark Fired with a lot of deep smokey barbecue notes, mixed with some spice, and smooth red Virginias. It's a nice evening smoke. You may need to have something on your stomach, as its quite strong.
