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.

Simply OK
Not one of my favorites, it’s not bad but the flavor is far too faint for my taste. It’s not a bad morning tobacco just not quite enough punch

I tried revelation out of
I tried revelation out of curiosity because I read that it was one of the tobaccos that Albert Einstein smoked. It is very mellow and has a good smell. Very enjoyable.

This can be a good
This can be a good and smooth all-day smoke. Nice blend of flavors without much in the way of a topping. Not too harsh and just the right amount of smokiness. I ordered for the burley nuttiness and it doesn’t disappoint. The Latakia is not overpowering at all. Tin note is a little like dried fruit. And hey, it was Einstein’s favorite. Try it. I can’t give it 5 stars as I don’t like the cut. Doesn’t pack very easily.

I really like this stuff. Nice to throw in the tobacco rotation.

Flavorful, moist, memorable for this non-pipe smoker. Revelation was my Pastor-husband's brand, and since he died in 2012, I smoke one of his pipes on special days. Christmas is one of those special days. Smoked last night, lasted a full 30 minutes! A record for me! Tasted wonderful!

Pleasantly Complex
I'm a fairly new pipe smoker and found this blend to be pleasantly complex and easy to smoke. I don't have the refined pallet that many of the other folks on here do, but I give it two thumbs up.

What a Revelation.
I liked this blend back in the day when my grandfather smoked it. In 1983 when I turned 18, I bought my first pipe and smoked Revelation with him and from what I can remember of the original, the Match Revelation is pretty close if not spot on. I love the way the fruit topping marries up with the Latakia and Burley and I can detect the Perique and Virginia very easily. I recommend this blend as a great starter for someone wanting to switch from Aromatics to English tobaccos. It is beautiful cross over tobacco. wonderful flavor, mild to medium in strength.

Excellent Match Blend
Was very satisfied with the Revelation match blend! Felt like the original blend had returned as my "go-to" tobacco of choice!

Great mix
Bought a tobacco from a little shop years ago and really enjoyed it but hadn’t found it since they closed. Finally! The aroma on opening the packet was it! The flavor, when smoking, is perfect. The aroma is smooth. Finally found the one that I will stay with.

Comfortable easy puffing blend
Great as it came --smooth-mellow--all the tobaccos could be tasted --very easy on the tongue and pipe bowl---am going to try two more heavier blends to compare. Burns smooth --no re-lights. The tobacco rises while lighting--not a Lat Bomb or N Bomb.Love the cut but am not used to it--trial and error will be required for me--very easy to slow puff. All my pipes are large bowl billiards --poker sitter type --couldn't help but think this blend would be perfect for a pot or large apple

Better than the original! This is large, almost wild cut leaf. There is a very slight fruit note added that will fade some with airing out, which I highly suggest. The aroma and flavor are amazingly good. Very satisfying! Room aroma is good. Tasty blend!

Nice English blend with just a breath of smoothness
If you like Lane HGL, Frog Morton, or 965 you’ll probably like this. I let it age a few months and liked it better.
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.
BR of saum, MN
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.

It seems like there are two reasons to buy a pipe lighter - to light your pipe, and then to lose it. For that reason, I won't spend a ton of money to buy a lighter, but I want one that does what I need. Forget disposable butane lighters. I've burnt myself too often with those. Now, I found the balance between value and function - the Pipes & Cigars Pipe Lighter. This antique gold-colored lighter doesn't use a flint, so no muss and fuss. Just pull down the trigger and you're ready to go. There's a fuel window so you'll easily know when it's time to recharge and it has a pull-down tamper that can be removed for use as a pick. You get all this at a price that's hard to resist!
