Not quite the same as
Not quite the same as the original PA but reasonably close

Great Tobacco
No its not PA. But, I love codger blends and really enjoy this the best. Smooth, no bite and tasty. This might actually be my favorite all day blend from now on. Believe the actual Tobacco is first rate. Burns very smooth. I also love CH but this blend may be giving it a run for its money, even though this is a PA match.

Great substitute for the Prince
I miss PA but this match comes through wonderfully. No bite. Not overly thrilled with the ribbon cut but I can manage. The price is also excellent. I will get PA when available but will purchase this from now on. Good job to the person who mixed this.

Nice blend
A good every day blend. I don’t think it’s close to PA but tasty.

Very Very close to PA because the match DOES NOT have the aftertaste that PA has --I will prefer the match blend--needs a little drying out which is an easy fix. Smoked all the way down to ash with no fuss in a twice smoked pipe..will need more of this. I don't smoke as often as I used to so I don't like buying tubs--this is a problem solved for me

Closest match to Prince Albert you can find
This is the closest of the match blends I have found. I would have given 5 ⭐️ except it is ribbon cut, not cross cut. For me, I have a learning curve on how to pack ribbon cut Tobacco’s, especially in smaller bowl pipes. I will be cutting it with scissors to assist in this process. The bottom line is when I burn through the other blends I have accumulated and unsuccessfully tried to get use to since the unavailablity of Prince Albert, I will be buying more of this with the hope it won’t be backordered when the next crisis arrives.

Same Same
I’ve been a piper for more than 50 years and have had my share of PA and if there is any difference between the March and the original I have a hard time finding it. Perhaps a little more vanilla but not sure. I’ve been smoking them back to back and and seem to be preferring the Match but don’t know exactly why. I do like the Match cut better. The biggest difference, of course, is the price. You can get a pound of Match for less than a 14 oz tub of PA of you can find one.

I . Like It
This tobacco met with more than my expectations. It did not burn hot, it's smooth and there is no bite. I like it as well as I like Prince Albert.

I really like Burley, and this blend is one that I smoke all day everyday. While I have several cellared blends, I’ve been stocking up on this Sutliff “Duke Albert”. Love it.

Better than the original
Not exactly the PA I know. This is a sweeter, cooler burning tobacco than PA. I enjoy this as much or more. Thanks.

MATCH Prince Albert
I have always like Prince Albert. And this has a little bit of a price break from the pouch or the 12 oz canister.

Good and tasty
A really good blend that is sweet and easy to smoke. Easily made into my regular rotation and something I'll be buy on a regular basis.

not the best, but definitely not the worst.
This tobacco has a tin note, that I remember from when I was a kid. It came a little moist to my liking, but after a smidgen of drying time, this tobacco was a good all day smoke. As an aromatic, I found the topping on the shy side. I feel like there are better aromatic matches here, but if you are on the fence about ordering it, pull the trigger on an once. I feel you will find this tobacco decently pleasing.

MATCH Prince Albert
Nothing will match Prince Albert original. It's an American burley classic. Anything other is just a poor imitation.

Good smoke
A nice alternative to PA. Has a little more of the cocoa flavor and less anise aroma/flavor than Prince, thumbs up.

Match Prince Albert
This one of the pipe tobacco's I enjoyed when I started and when I lit up my first pipe it was like finding a old friend. It was a mild bend to smoke and it pass the "wife test" so I can smoke it the house. It is good bend for a first time pipe smoker to start with because it easy to lit and smoke.

Nice enough, but no match.
Milder and sweeter than Prince Albert. It seems to have a fruity flavoring. PA has a cocoa topping. You can smell it in the can or pouch. The original formula for PA was Piedmont Bright, a flavored and sweetened Burley from Kentucky, and 10% Turkish leaf. I have no reason to believe it has changed. Camel cigarettes still use that formula. So, nice enough tobacco, but by no means a Prince Albert match. Try again, P&P!

Nice tobacco, but not a close match
I am a long-time Prince Albert smoker. Prince Albert is flavored with cocoa. You can smell it when you open a fresh container. The Match blend seems to have a fruity top note. Originally, Prince Albert was 10% Turkish leaf, in addition to Piedmont bright and sweetened Kentucky burly. I have no reason to believe it has changed. The Prince Albert finish seems to suggest Turkish to me, particularly when the smoke is properly "sipped." Prince Albert is not a strong tobacco, but it is distinctly stronger than the Match blend. Putting all that aside, the Match blend is quite pleasant, and, like Prince Albert, is not overly aromatic and does not bite.

Excellent tobacco!!
Have smoked PA for years so had to try this Prince Albert Match. Seems a just a bit sweeter and for me I like that. Overall excellent match. Think I like it maybe even a little better than reg. PA. Excellent smoke, taste and burn. Will buy more. Thanks P&C.

Customer Testimonials
I am a daily Prince Albert smoker, so I had to try this just out of curiosity--and the fact that Middleton discontinued the pouches. This didn't taste anything like Prince Albert to me. It was much sweeter, too moist, and it gave me tongue bite. I've been smoking Prince Albert for years, and it never gave me tongue bite. I tried drying it out, but it was still too sweet and bit me. I ended up throwing a few ounces away. I was disappointed, because I've had some great P&C matches that I liked more than the original. I'll pay the extra money for a tub of the real thing.
