MATCH Blue Boar

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

Blue Boar was a classic "American/English" blend, made by the American Tobacco Company. It was made of different cuts and types of Burley with bright Virginia and a light touch of Latakia. The MATCH version of Blue Boar combines rough cut white Burley, white cube Burley and a ribbon-cut toasted Burley, with golden Virginia and just the right amount of smoky Cyprian Latakia. This blend is an all-day type of blend, with just enough Latakia influence to be interesting, while not overpowering the palate. Transport yourself back in time with a modern interpretation of an iconic blend with MATCH Blue Boar.

Close to the original as I can remember.
I remember smoking Blue Boar , but to be honest it's been many years ago , so my recollection of it has faded . But I will say I enjoyed it then and I'm enjoying match Blue Boar vary much now !!! And have added it to my large rotation.

Match Blue Boar
This stuff is as close to the original as I have tried. Maybe just a little sweeter than I remember. There is something different ... maybe unsweetened black cavendish? I can't really say but is is a great smoke even without a comparison to it's name sake.

A Quality Blend
I am still looking for a blend that is light on the aromatics and flavorings.

Almost Perfect
I loved Blue Boar back in the 70's & this match is almost identical as I remember it. I do believe the original had slightly more Latakia in the blend. I simply added 1oz of Latakia to 4oz of match & that did it for me. Love the blend. I have smoked 3 or 4 bowls in succession & have found no difference between them. Very consistent quality. Keep up the good work P&C.

SPICY NIGHTCAP
I don't know what the original was like but I can say it reminds of the Frog but on the lite side in the pouch, but spicyer to smoke a good nightcap. Burn is a little rapid even after raising the case, otherwise I would be giving it 5 stars.

Blue Boar
Had several cans back in the 1960 and 70s. This is a good match as far as I recall the original Blue Boar.

Smoke in a large bowl pipe
I liked it. Unfortunately, MATCH Blue Boar didn't "wow" me due to a fast rate of burn. I recommend smoking it in a large bowl pipe.

Winner, winner Blue Boar dinner!
I never smoked the original Blue Boar so I won't be comparing here. This match version is a winner in my book! There is just enough Virginia and Latakia to enhance the nutty toasty Burley. This for me is enjoyable Enough to smoke all day long. As a matter of fact I have gone through several bowls on a given day. Give this one a try, I don't think you will be disappointed. Another excellent job by Russ O.

An old standard comes back…
If anything the Match Blend is superior to the original blend in quality.A very pleasing anytime of the day pipe blend.Maybe not for the sophisticate but for a lover of the old time OTC blends it’s great to see this one back.

Home Run!
Russ flat out nailed this one and hit a home run. It is a perfect match in my book to a classic of the old days from the American Tobacco Co.
