MATCH Sugar Barrel

Sugar Barrel was a staple for many of our customers. This Burley-based blend with some Virginia added had a nice, lightly-sweet note, and was a great all-day kind of tobacco. Sugar Barrel fans can rejoice and enjoy with this great clone of the original.

Surprisingly good by itself but mixes well too. A hidden gem.

Very close to the original
Very close to the original Sugar Barrel but I recall the original being somewhat sweeter and stronger in flavor than this Match blend. It's a very enjoyable blend and not as damp as the drug store version. It's a great nostalgic blend but the "sugar" part of the name is somewhat misleading, yet a very nice blend and all day smoke.

You can't smoke sugar Barrel
You can't smoke sugar Barrel like other tobacco's. You must puff lightly to get the wonderful flavor from it. A slight bite is countered by the lovely sweetness, and a pipe will last longer than most others. It is a pleasant smoke for a quiet afternoon.

Really Good
I have never had the pleasure of smoking the original Sugar Barrel, but if it was anything like this it is a shame they took it off the market. This blend is a simple, mellow blend that doesn't bite and has a fantastic flavor. I bought 2oz originally and have already come back and bought 16 more. If you want a simple good tasting all day smoke this one is worth giving a try.

Sugar Barrel
I never had the chance to try the original Sugar Barrel so this isn't a comparison. To me smoking this blend reminded me of being a kid and smelling ginger bread while it cooks. Its not bad at all but it also had a cigarette taste to it.

Good blend
Never had it, so I had no expectations. It is a nice, mellow blend and I'm glad I got as much as I did. It's on my list for next purchase.

Not too bad
The cut is kind of an issue when starting. It seems like I have trouble getting it lit but once it starts burning it keeps on going with a pretty decent flavor but nothing that really jumps out. All in all not a bad smoke if you have the patience to get it lit.

Nice Burley!
Nice mildly sweet codger blend. I have reordered and will keep it in my rotation.

Good Codger Style Burley
I never had the original, but I'm exploring the old school burley-forward codger style blends. I enjoy this one. I definitely get brown sugar, but it's not wholly overpowering. It's not a complex, contemplative blend. It's utilitarian, does a fine job at being what it is. It's a blend to work in the shop, mow the lawn, and go about your business with. A fine workhorse that needs no fiddling, or meditation. Of course, I would say the same of most codger blends, but the sugar topping in Sugar Barrel Match makes it stand out.

Not for me
I generally smoke black cav. w/vanilla. I wanted to try something different, so I ordered an ounce of this. It is not for me, not to say it is bad, just not my thing.

Good tobacco.
Not sure how close this is to the original sugar barrel since it's been many years since I smoked the original blend. This is a good aromatic blend. Not exactly my "cup of tea" so to speak, but I don't think that's a problem with the tobacco.

It reminds me of the first time I tried it, fifteen years ago.

My New Favorite Burley
I smoke a bit of most types of mixtures but mostly I enjoy "English Blends", both traditional and the American-English variety. Otherwise I prefer the "Codger" Burley pipe mixtures. Sugar Barrel is just wonderful. This is the comfort food of pipe tobaccos. Creamy, nutty, cereal like flavor that is reminiscent of a bowl of warm Cream of Wheat with brown sugar. No tongue scorching like a nasty Virginia forward blend, Sugar Barrel is straightforward tasty, sweetened Burley that if it has any Virginia it is in a small quantity as a condiment. Match Sugar Barrel lights up easily, tastes good from the get go and the flavor builds and becomes more tasty as you puff away. The stuff is a great buy, very inexpensive and very enjoyable. Highly recommended, I like this better than the new Lane Ready Rub reincarnation.

MATCH Sugar Barrel
Lots and lots or large pieces. Spent half-hour w/ scissors cutting down to size. Having done that, perhaps I no longer remember the original Sugar Barrel flavor, but this doesn't seem to match it. Burns up very quickly and rather tasteless.

The leaf was bone dry. Burned very harsh. Poor quality.

Not as sweet as the original, but better I thought. More Balanced.
