MATCH Revelation

This is a match to House of Windsor Revelation. The original was one of Albert Einstein's favorites, and this blend captures the essential character of the old classic, combining yellow and red Virginias, nutty cube-cut Burley, smoky Latakia and zesty Perique with a soft, dark fruit top note to create an distinctly old fashioned flavor and room note.  Fans of the original will find MATCH - Revelation to be a fine substitute.

NOT like original Revelation, but not bad either!
First of all, this match is NOT like the original Revelation at all! It is too sweet...a somewhat sweet casing of some sort, the cut is all wrong, more coarse with big twig like hunks of burley & large pieces of virginia flake, and more latikia. It burns a little hot and faster no doubt due to the semi sweet casing. The mixing is uneven as well. I am an older very experienced pipe smoker & smoked Revelation as a regular until it was finally unavailable.....and this ain't it!! HOWEVER, all that being said, this 'match' is a not bad lighter Americanized 'English' style blend and for what it is is not bad and quite smokeable..(is that a word?) I bought a pound to try and am enjoying it... even though I will probably not reorder the same 'match' again. It's certainly NOT like the original Revelation, but a pretty good smoke anyway!

2017 batch different from 2016 batch
Never tried the original, so I'm no help there. Ordered some in 2016 and was knocked out by the experience. It was out of stock most of 2017, so when it finally reappeared I ordered. Unfortunately, what I received was not the same thing. "New" batch looked and tasted more like Epiphany that what I received before. Not necessarily a bad thing, but rather disappointing.

I remember seeing the original Revelation many years ago, but never tried it. Now I wish I had, if it was as good as this, I sure missed out on some good stuff. I ordered 16 ounces of this, and after one bowl in a well behaved Savinelli bent apple, I am hooked. This is good tobacco, no negative comments from me, will order more.

Revelation Resurrected!
Its but a small touch off from the original Revelation. It was wonderful to smoke the MATCH Revelation, bringing good memories and good taste. Well done!!

Pleasant smoke -- no Lat bomb
Latakia is present in smaller amounts and not over-powering, and I did not even notice the Perique, two characteristics I really liked. Bite-free. Got a rare thin, weak smoke, probably from how much of the very wide and long ribbons that are a small part of the mixture were loaded in that fill. Sometimes needed a little drying time before loading to prevent leaving some un-burned, wet tobacco in the heal before the taste got funky. My rating is based on it doing very well for the type of blend it is, and not on how much I liked it personally. A pleasant mild-to-medium American English aromatic. Latakia forward, but far from a Lat bomb, and, of course, Einstein was against any kind of bomb. Smoking it didn’t seem to make me any more intelligent. If you want a pleasant, flavorful, mild-medium, smoky and slightly sweet experience, you’ll find it here. As Einstein might say (but probably wouldn’t) “Smoke what you like, and like what you smoke”.

One of my favorite tobaccos, good anytime.

Even My Wife Likes It
I'm really enjoying this blend. I never tried the real thing, but, on it's own, this is a nice, light, and balanced English. I generally prefer Latakia bombs, but those usually make my wife complain about the room note. This is one that satisfies both of us.

Nice flavor, but not enough of it
I don't have experience with the blend this is a match for, so no comparisons here. This blend doesn't have enough body for me. It's a bit too light in strength. The aroma and flavor are nice, but very light and, to my palette, unsatisfying.

Great stuff!!
My favorite go to choice right now.

Nice blend for a great price
Revelation is a decent blend on it's own, but I use MATCH Revelation as the base for my blend. I combine it with a good amount of either 10 to Midnight or Plum Pudding, and sweeten it up with a bit of Russ' Old Glory. It makes for a nice balance that burns cool with sweet dark fruit top note. It's also a great way to stretch your tobacco supply too.

A mild but delightful blend.
I'm a fan of bold latakia blends, but when I saw that this had been one of Albert Einstein's favorites, I had to give it a try. As others have mentioned,it does not have the punch that latakia lovers may be looking for, but I nonetheless found it a pleasant smoke, mild, a little woody, a little herby - like sipping a nice cup of herbal tea. While I do enjoy it on its own, I enjoy it even more when mixed with a heavier latakia blend. Overall, I was very pleased to find that Einstein's preferences in tobacco were much more sensible than his views on space and time... and now I'm wondering what tobaccos Henrik Lorentz and Henri Bergson enjoyed!

Darned good stuff!
A new favorite for me. I never enjoyed the original but, this is one that I have added to my regular order. I will surely keep this in stock . Nice flavor and aroma. Perfect for relaxing after a long day.

I love this tobacco. It reminds me of sitting in an old professor's private study surrounded by physics books and chalkboards scribbled with equations. It's smooth, woodsy, and not too strong. I smoke it in my Macqueen Seafarer pipe, perfect for a Saturday morning watching the sun come up. Highly recommended

So So
I thought this blend was kinda "blah". I added some extra Latakia and it perked it up to something smokable.

Just OK
Being a fan of all the types of tobaccos used in this blend I thought Revelation Match would be a shoe-in for addition into my rotation. Not the case however. I found it to be rather bland and unsatisfying although I did like the cut of the tobacco and it burned well right down to the bottom of the bowl. Given the tobaccos in this mixture I just expected more of a punch...didn't happen. I wouldn't say it's a bad smoke but just OK. May try it again in the distant future.

Personal favorite
As being a new pipe smoker I will try my best to be accurate. This is one of the few blends I've had to where it's one I will remember that just has that right taste. I only ordered an ounce but man I regret it. I'm use to quite moist blends and this one was ready to go straight out the bag. I only give it four stars because I don't have the expertise to expand on it anymore than that.

A Good Companion
A solid cured Virginia leaf flavor with English tones, and with an overtone that changes with my mood that day. Fascinating and relaxing, and a good smoke for reading. Good with a cup of coffee. For me, smokes best in a longer stem, heavier pipe. I have been using it for awhile now, and very much like the blend.

I like it!
Just got this from p&c a couple of days ago. I am a big fan of burley and Virginias. Nice mild smoke. There is a taste that is hard to identify that I really enjoy. Nice.

A most enjoyable mixture. Not an exact match with the original. Too much fruit casing I think. But still quite nice. Service on my order was outstanding. Thank you.
Customer Testimonials
The batch of MATCH I am now enjoying is probably superior to the last batch I had of the "original recipe". Will be ordering more when this lot is gone. A very tasty blend, recommend smoking slowly.
A milder, fairly smooth smoke. I kind of like it, may order more.
Seems close enough to the original to satisfy me, probably just a touch closer than C & D's Epiphany, if it matters. A great blend in its own right, if you like this type of pipe weed, mildly "English" with a slight fruit topping. I do, very much.
