MATCH Walnut

Walnut was a classic American-style English blend made of  nutty Burley, delicate Virginias, rich Kentucky, mellow Maryland, earthy Turkish and smoky Cyprian Latakia. It dated back to the 1800s, but recently vanished. The legacy of this all-day type of blend lives on with MATCH - Walnut, and we're sure you'll enjoy this classic American English blend.

A good one...
May not be like the original...don't know, never had it. But dang, this stuff is pretty good. Sweet, sour, tangy, spicy, nutty, earthy, and smokey...what's not to like? By far the best bulk blend I've ever tried, will buy and smoke plenty more.

I will take this blend forsaking all others, till the end of time. I've tried hundreds of English blends, but this one rings all the bells. I pity non-smokers when I'm filling my bowl with Walnut. As my excitement grows while I'm anticipating my first draw, I fleeting wonder how empty life must be for someone who has never enjoyed a great pipe tobacco.

Not a Match/Middleton comparison
If you are looking for a comparison to Middleton's Walnut, this is not the review for you. This is simply a review on Match Walnut. You see, I never had the chance to smoke Middleton Walnut. Apparently it was a pleasing smoke that many people enjoyed. I have never been into English blends much, but I decided to give this a try. I am glad I did. I really did enjoy this blend, and I would be willing to order more to keep in a jar. It is not overwhelmingly smoky like some English blends. It is what is described as an American English blend. I am fine with that. The oriental tobacco mixes wonderfully with the burley. If you are curious to give this a try, I suggest you at least try it. If you are familiar with Middleton Walnut, you might be disappointed or you might be surprised. All I know that is that I highly enjoyed this from first light down to final puff.

Rating should be higher
I have never had the original, so can not compare, but I have stocked up on this as it is absolutely delicious and should be scoring higher. I wrote a much longer review while smoking this and will need to see if that actually gets posted. If not, I'll rewrite as close as I can to that original description from last week.

Match Walnut a good blend
Well I would have tried Walnut long ago if I knew it was basically an American English, burley and Latakia, a good fairly mild smoke and not too heavy on Latakia (like salt u don't need much)

Not Walnut...
When I first heard that Middleton's Walnut was being discontinued, I was disappointed to say the least. When I saw that someone was going to try to match it, I was hopeful. But this ain't it. I wonder if the blender had even looked at or tasted the real thing. While the real walnut was a coarse, dense cut tobacco, this 'match' is mainly a ribbony, light cut. While the real is mainly a burly with just hints of the other tobaccos, this has an overpowering oriental flavor. While it's not a 'bad' blend per se, it's just not the Walnut that I was hoping to find.
Customer Testimonials
I never smoked the original so I can not compare. Latakia is enough to enjoy but not overwhelming. I had to smoke a couple of ounces before the other tobaccos started coming through. Has become one of the blends I prefer at night but it's also a good all day smoke for me. I will order more of this.
