Missouri Meerschaum Independence Day

The newest version of Missouri Meerschaum's Independence Day blend is very intriguing. This is a softly aromatic blend with vanilla leading the way, but underneath is a light splash of Cyprian Latakia to add a smoky note. This one should appeal to fans of aromatic English blends that are no longer available and for folks who wax nostalgic for some of the old American English blends that had a bit of an aromatic scent. As is typical of the Missouri Meerschaum blends, we find that the flavor of this cool-smoking blend are enhanced by the buttery sweetness that a genuine Missouri Meerschaum corncob pipe adds to the mix.

Pastors' Choice
I smoke with a group of pastors. Our "go-to" smoke is Independence Day. The flavor is excellent, mild, a great, smooth smoke. We find that if you keep it at 62% humidity, you'd have to smoke like a furnace to make it bite. Simply no complaints and all in is our impression. We pipe puffin pastors keep a good stock cellared too. We don't ever want to run out of this until Jesus returns! :-)

MM, You Can Do Better
What can I say about this? I really wanted to like it, I tried it in the morning, evening, front and back porch, with coffee, with water.., and I just can't like it. Maybe it takes a more discerning palette than mine, but the only difference between this blend and wet cardboard is the slightest hint of Latakia occasionally. Three stars because it's not a bad tobacco. Just a completely bland tobacco.

Good Change
I really liked the balance of this tobacco, a good break from the tobacco that I normally use. A bite that wakes the taste buds up. A nice aromatic smoke.

All Day Success
Nice light English, American style. Not too heavy, not too bland; good balance. One of my go-to all-day blends.

Taste was mild and did not bite the tongue. Great aroma and flavor with a hint of Latakia, that I find very pleasing. Already bought two more tins.

I’m a sucker for a gimmick.
Got it in a timely manner. I felt at a good price. I will be smoking it on Memorial Day and the 4th weekends in my corn cob. Looking forward it.

Interesting tin note. A bit
Interesting tin note. A bit smoky. Smooth smoke and, when smoked slowly, very little bite. Leaves a nice aftertaste, but I was left wondering where the smokiness went. Overall a good evening pipe, especially now that the weather is turning cooler.

Nice smoke
Mellow room and tin note. Nice to smoke sitting on the deck with a good rye. A little bite, burns nicely.

The smoke heard 'round the world!
Darn good. Mellow sweetness with an unexpected buttery note. Perfect smoke whilst overthrowing the British monarchy.

Love it!
This is a new favorite to add to my rotation. Just enough smoke and sweetness to notice both. Neither one over powers the other, a perfect balance. One reviewer compared it to a BBQ ...I thought he was kidding, try it and you’ll see!

Independence Day
Not the best,but not a bad smoke. I'm sure it will appeal to some. Just not so much for me.

I actually can't believe how much I like the tobacco. The smokiness is great, but not overpowering - like delicious BBQ. The taste is really incredible, new favorite

Great mixture!
You can taste the latakia with the sweet notes as well. I can’t say enough how great this was.

A blend that leaves a positive lasting impression
For my bachelor's degree, I took a film studies class as an elective. On the first day of class, the teacher asked us how we decide if a movie is good or not. My primary response was any movie that I think of after I finish watching it is a good movie. I apply a similar philosophy to rating other things, even pipe tobacco. Does it leave a lasting impression on me after I finish a bowl? With MM I.D. 2019, I can safely say that this tobacco blend left a positive, lasting impression. After I finished the first bowl, I immediately wanted another, I didn't want the smoke to end. It's a light English style blend with just the right amount of sweetness on top to give you the best of both worlds. This is coming from someone who loves the 2015 blend for its own merits, in fact, I still have a jar of the 2015 blend that I smoke on special occasions. The new blend is one you cannot overlook in a corn cob or a briar, either one the blend will excel in. I may pick up a couple of more tins before this run ends.

Excellent all-day smoke
Independance Day is a welcome addition. My B&M had to discontinue my favorite bland (thanks, FDA!) and I've been seeking a replacement. This blend, with its base of Virginia, Burley and Cavendish, is just waht the doctor ordered; and the Latakia amount is just exactly right for my taste buds. A great tobacco - thank you for the recommendation!

One of the better English style blends
Very smooth and tasty. No bite and easy to keep lit. The room note is not up to the aromatics but then most English blends are no better.
Customer Testimonials
Ordered this with Great Dane and American Patriot and a selection of MM cobs as an intro to cobs in general. I have enjoyed the experience and will continue to smoke a cob now and then to supplement my briars. The other blends were good, but more on par with a decent OTC blend. Independence Day deserves the tin - a step above the rest of the MM blends IMHO. I ordered another tin almost immediately because it is a limited run. A great social smoke - this was in my pipe when I was lightin' the fireworks on the 4th.
MC of Slidell, LA
A wonderful tobacco! The tin aroma is great has a clean fresh smell. Taste is great, no bite and burns to bottom of the bowl. Have already ordered more to keep in my small stock of pipe tobacco!
JK of San Bernardino, CA
This is a great smoke. Finished the tin in a couple of weeks. No tongue bite, and can be enjoyed any time of day.
AA of Brooklyn, NY
I'm new to pipe smoking, thought I would give the a try, very..very happy with it. It has a great taste, no bite, and my wife loves the smell of the light chocolate. I would highly recommended giving this a try.
SP of Carthage, TX
This is a winner. I have to say as a Missouri Meerschaum pipe fan I haven't tried their tobacco until I.D. 2015. It has a nice flavor and sweetness but not over sweet. Very satisfying smoke. I bought two tins one for now and one to save. The Virginias and Burley with Black Cavendish really work well with each other. Put this in an MM cob or hardwood and you have a very tasty very satisfying smoke. I plan to smoke nothing but this on 7/4/15.
DB of Steelville, MO
A wonderful blend of tobacco with great flavor and aroma. Absolutely delicious.
