Nog & Grog

What happens when you mix Egg Nog and Pirate's Cove together, you get Nog & Grog. Russ' Pirate's Cove is a pipe tobacco composed of Burley, black Cavendish and a bit of ripe Virginia with notes of honey and vanilla and Hearth & Home's Egg Nog gives you a complex aroma that is pleasant and faintly sweet. You can not go wrong with either one of these tobaccos but what we want to know is who is the best of the best. So we call on our P&C Faithful to help determine which is the Nog & Grog battle leader. At this time you can purchase both tobaccos at a low price and be able to smoke them side by side. Once you have tried them, come back and leave your review and tell us who the clear winner should be.

Best Christmas Tobacco, I Think
Egg Nog has always been my favorite holiday indulgent and this tobacco does not disappoint with it's wonderful flavor and aroma.

Not Much Flavor
It was smooth enough tobacco but I really couldn't pick up on any egg nog. After I smoked the pipe my mouth had a little sense of the viscosity of egg nog but that was it.

Egg nog
Great flavor and appeasing aroma.

Like Christmas in a pipe.
I love this almost as much as Cult Red Blood Moon. It has a great flavor like egg nog, and room note that's a crowd please for people who aren't anti smokers. I will defiantly stock up on this tobacco.

A great choice
Wife loves the room note. Nice mild with a good flavor and not overly sweet. One of my go to blends.

Hearth & Home's Egg Nog
Great tobacco!. I am new to pipe smoking but I would highly recommend this product. It has a sweet somewhat vanilla taste and an excellent room note that smells well... like egg nog. Very nice for the holiday season.The tin note was very pleasant as well. It smells a little woodsy too me but like I said very pleasant. I will definitely buy more of this when my Mason jar runs low.

Nice relaxing choclaty (think brownie) mustache note. Light on taste, but great smoke.
Good smoke, initial taste is a bit light for my preference, the side benefit though is the mustache note is relaxing. That nice light smell as if you were on the other side of the house while mom (or grandma) had just finished cooking some brownies and letting them cool. Note: I use mustache note. I feel room note can be confusing as some refer to it as pre smoke and some after smoked, they always smell different in either state. Mustache note leaves no guess work ( unless your trying real hard to misunderstand and think someone rubbed their face in it, in which case, keep the zippo fuel away from them)

Very nice blend!
So, I think this is more of an old school egg nog type taste, so if you are looking for something out of the grocery store dairy dept this isn't it. You will definitely taste the vanilla, nutmeg and rum flavorings though! Packs very well, and smokes easily without bite. So far, my regular smoking aromatic tobacco over Lane 1-Q, Capt Black and Sutliff Vanilla custard.

Pretty good
Rustic and nice blend. Very light room note and not a whole lot of sweetness. The vanilla/rum notes pull through randomly and give you a hint of good flavor but only at just the right temperature, smoke a little to hot and it goes rough and leaves you wondering where the flavor went. Overall not bad.
4 out of 5
Not too shabby
Nice spicy-sweet taste. Room note definitely gives you a hint of the holidays. There truly is little to no bite. Overall a good blend and great smoke for a cool night with a glass of bourbon or rum. One star off for the fact that it lights like a wet sock. May order again.

Russ" blends are quite a find.
Pirates Cove is a delightful smoke, smooth, tasty and an aromatic aroma which pleases all. Just ordered a different blend for variety,. Each I have tried have been first, an excellent smoking tobacco and second, a good value.. Plan to make them the choice option for my aromatic tobacco purchases! A sure winner in my opinion.

Great burley/cavendish combo.
Great burley and cavendish combo. I'm a big fan of combinations made from burleys, virginias and cavendishes. I have tried about two dozen tobaccos and this is one of my favorites and definitely my favorite burley/cav combo. You might be disappointed if you are expecting something that really tastes exactly like egg nog, but this has a rich, sweet cav flavor and the earthy tobacco flavor of a burley. In addition it has subtle vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and spice flavors. Has a little nicotine from the burley, a little tongue bite but not much, and a really nice, sweet, mild aftertaste. It burns well, you will only need to air dry it a little if you like dryer tobacco. A great tobacco, I'm about to order a little more.

Egg Nog, a wonderful blend to add to rotation!
Another HOMERUN by Russ! What a great flavorful, mellow, smooth everyday aro! Superb room note, zero bite, finishes well. I would have loved to have tried the Nog and Grog, but it was out of stock. But this alone is a very satisfying blend. Definitely recommended!

Dry
The last time I ordered it was nice and moist. This time it seems really dry! Only ordering two times I hope the first order is more common...

Excellent
I’m really enjoying this blend. Pirate’s Cove leaves a mild room note that my wife enjoys. In my opinion this blend pairs well with coffee, Irish and Scottish breakfast teas. I recently attempted to purchase more of Pirate’s Cove but unfortunately this product is back ordered. I would recommend Pirate’s Cove to a friend or someone new to the pipe.

Hit and miss
There is good news and bad news for me, at least, in this blend. It is very smooth and bite free, and it burns clean....no gooey by product of a wet over sweet smoke. HOWEVER, it possesses very little flavor, and there is something in the blend that gives me a slight taste of soapyness...(is that a word?).... But only during the initial light. I have tried Russ' Cavendish in the Woods, and it is superb. However, I will have to pass on Pirate's Cove.

Good not great
This is a light blend for the holiday season. Lightly sweet with hints of egg nog pulling through. Best smoked on a cold winters day.

A smooth blend
A few weeks ago I ordered some Pirates Cove. I like its easy all day smoke characteristics that I ordered a half pound more!

Yo ho ho
Pirate's Cove is a good tobacco, with a good flavor and pleasant aroma. It isn't my favorite, but I think it could be something some people may really enjoy. I got a hint of tongue bite no matter how slow I smoked it, so that deterred me from really enjoying as much as I had hoped. However, it still is a good tobacco. If you're even mildly curious about it, I say get some.

Give it a shot! Glad I have it another
Ah, yeah this stuff is legit. I moved away from aros and got into English and capers, but I picked up a other oz of this (tried it befire and scorched my tongue). It's very pleasant and I am enjoying it. The aroma it lets off is very nice and I defiantly recommend. Packed in a Morgan Bones Poker

What A Perfect Combination!
I love this blend because it combines a well-rounded sweetness with cool burning, a rare combination in my experience. Most blends with the kind of flavor I like tend to cause tongue bite, and the blends that burn cool taste harsh. This is a tobacco to linger with.

Not egg nog, but not bad.
I like it. I do not love it. I'm not sure what I smell in the bag, or taste while smoking, but it is not egg nog. If they called it something else, I might give it 4 stars, simply because my expectation was egg nog. Burns pretty well, little bite, doesn't need relighting unless you forget about it. Room notes are pleasant, but not because of the good aromas so much as the lack of offensive smells. The taste is mellow, and every now and then I can taste some kind of dairy based sweetness, although I usually got it shortly after lighting. I might buy it again out of curiosity.

Not worth the cost

#1 go to Aro
This is now my #1 go to Aro, I love this stuff.
3 out of 5
Nice flavors
Definatly a cinnamon/spice & rum mixture. A little wet, let set out 30 min or so to dry A bit. Lights and smokes well, no tongue bite. Smoke slow or flavors diminish quickly. The smell of the bag is very nice. Creamy, tobacco, spice and rum. Once lit the flavor & aroma are about the same, but you gotta take your time. Very nice aromatic

Egg Nog Bulk
My choice was always the 8 ounce tins, last time I ordered it was on back order, so I ordered a pound of bulk. My opion is the bulk is better. I like this blend and smoke it daily. Very mild, flavorful, and good aroma.

No flavor
I normally enjoy Russ' s line very much, but found this one to lack any flavor. To me it reminded me of the days long ago when I smoked the flavorless cigarette. I smoke a variety of aromatic and non-aromatic and some english, from mild to medium. But in terms of other tobacco qualities such as moisture, and temperature when smoked this tobacco was up to Russ' s usual standards..

Pirate's Cove Best Aromatic ??
I have tried several of Russ' monthly blends and they all have been good. However, I believe Pirate's Cove is the best one- It delivers a flavorful smoke which burns well right out of the package. It produces a large amount of smoke as I gently puff - I like a tobacco that easily draws smoke and the aroma for those around is very pleasing- no tongue bite- maybe best aromatic I have tried.
4 out of 5
Pretty good
Very nice mild smoke with nice mild flavors. This is not a flavor bomb, but whats there is pleasant. I probably will not purchase this again simply because I have so many other tobaccos with similar profiles that have a bit more flavor kick. Its a good quality blend though, and is worth a try...

Old Huck would love it
Loaded up a cob pipe with this batch and found myself day dreaming of floating down the river on old Huck Finn's raft. Great taste, great note, relaxing and a real pleasure. Even though Pirate's Cove at the Outer Banks of NC in real life smells like fish and bait and stale beer, thank goodness this batch doesn't ;). Buy some and give yourself a treat.

Very nice!
Smoking this one now. I honestly can't taste the egg nog flavor but I do enjoy the taste and room note. Smells even better which is important to me as being a woman, I am big into nice smells. Smoked cool and there was no bite. I like this tobacco very much.

Russ' Pirate's Cove
Pirate's Cove is a winner in my book. It's a well balanced, not too sweet, aromatic. I would definitely recommend you try it.

'Tis the Season
I ordered this as a seasonal tobacco to smoke in my new Savinelli 2015 St. Nicholas prince pipe. The aroma is very pleasant. it is not soggy like some other aeros I have tried. Packs very nicely in the bowl. I think this was the first tobacco that I was able to smoke down to the bottom of the bowl. Thinking about it makes me want to go some another bowl right now. This is definitely worth it for any aero smoker.

Merry Christmas!
Decided to get this since so close to December. I finally smoked a few bowls of it this week. Such a nice smooth and mild smoke with a awesome aroma. Even though this is Egg Nog and more of a Christmas tobacco. I could smoke this any time of the year. Makes me wonder what it would be like mixed with a rum tobacco. Note to self may have to try that.

Nice smoke every now and then.
As a beginner pipe tobacco smoker this being my 2nd smoke. The room note nor the taste is nothing like egg nog. However the taste to me is quite pleasant. I wouldn't smoke it everyday, but it would be nice every now and then.

Russ' Monthly Blend - Pirate's Cove
I have been thoroughly enjoying Russ' Pirate's Cove tobacco blend. It's exactly as it was described in Pipes and Cigars magazine. The flavor is satisfying and I've smoked it in many of my pipes. I smoked a bowl today as a matter of fact. Thanks for quickly shipping it to me.

Another great one from Russ...
Unashamed I ordered this blend because of the name. Opening the 1oz. bag sent me back to my childhood where I have fond memories of my father smoking his pipes. There is no bite and the aroma is outstanding. I could almost imagine myself smoking this while on the deck of a 3 masted pirate ship.
5 out of 5
A GREAT blend
This is a REALLY smooth, no bite, aromatic tobacco. Smoke it as often as you want, as then is no after taste. This has become one of my favorite blends. I hope P&C carries this as a regular seller!!!
