Discontinued
I have discovered that this tobacco has been discontinued. Tragic indeed. I have a remaining 1.5 oz can of Prince albert (unused), and two packages of cherry vanilla 1.5 oz each (unopened). If interested please contact me at [email protected]

Different smokes for different folks
P.A. had always been my favorite for over 70 years and now it is not available. I have called Middleton to see if they are going to produce it , but can't get a straight answer. I really miss the Prince and trying many other blends, but none compare to P.A. in my opinion. What a shame if another American classic bites the dust.

Complexly simple!
Outstandingly simple. It isn't anything complex but that's what makes this so nice. I have already decided that this will be permanently in my rotation. I almost don't want anything else now! I could seriously have this for the rest of my life and I would be completely satisfied!

The old standby.
Tasty, simple and consistent. My all-day smoke. Nutty, mild with a touch of sweetness. As much as I enjoy small batch and boutique blends, Prince Albert is what satisfies me, day in and day out. If you're a burley fan and haven't tried it, give it a shot. It wouldn't have stuck around for over a century if it wasn't good stuff.

Nice flavor (from a newbie)
Bought it mainly for the canister. My mother has an old metal Prince Albert tin that she uses for buttons. Bought this to have the metal canister. However, as a newbie to pipe smoking, I enjoy the flavor, and it is very forgiving, while you learn to pack your pipe.

bought for a friend
He's been smoking it for decades. I prefer a shag cut, but have enjoyed it with him many times over many years. If you have PA in the can, Let Him Out :)!

it's ok
would love to have a pipe tobac that isn't laced with all the added chemicals. everything I buy has a sameness to them and most burn hot. the industry is stuck with Federal reg.s so we end up with inferior pipe tobac.

Review Prince Albert...Seriously???
Another website with tens of thousands of members did a survey a few years ago and PA won hands down. Many of its members were so outraged that this simple old downhome burley could out score the fine tobaccos from the worlds leading sellers they forfeited their membership! In fact, I have drifted through literally hundreds of blends over the past fifty years and some I loved and many I didn't. Some I buy on a regular basis and some molder away in my cellar but when I get confused about what I really enjoy in my pipe I always go back to that big red canister of Prince Albert to reset my taste buds and remind me of why I started smoking a pipe in the first place. No frills. Just an easy packing, slow burning, stay lit, no bite, no after taste tobacco .

Excellent classic! Tried and true.

Yes but ...
I add brandy and triple sec. A perversion, perhaps, but it sure tastes good.

Awesome classic codger blend
When I am not in the mood for anything complex, this is always a good fallback. You can't go wrong here.

Good everyday smoke
First time trying Prince Albert and it's a good all day smoke. Mild flavor with no bite, but I find it burns faster than Captain Black Copper which is my usual pipe tobacco. Still a well rounded tobacco that I'd purchase again.

Prince Albert 14 oz. Can 10 star šŸŒŸ excellence!!
Prince Albert is a nicely branched hold her mellow cross cut tobacco that has me thinking about it more than talking šŸ‘„. I must say, every once in a while I think I have a very good fix on this, for some l nd of review, but it just isn't it....every time I try to put it down 3-4 more things come up after that....but in short it's a very exalted mild smoke with all the recharge a smoker wants Plus the most balanced flavor ever smoked, with a flavor that starts excellent and grows until the last bit of fresh smoke is burned but it also has 1 1/2 back Plus crutch support that lasts better and longer during that first bowl to needed second bowl of the day, without bothering the smoker at all!!

Great tobacco and on time
This is the first time order pipe tobacco from here, and i'll probably do it again. The can is large considering how often I have a pipe (once every few days)

Pure Tobacco no frills
I am a Kentuckian and spent many days working in Tobacco. Prince Albert smells and tastes like Kentucky burley thats been air cured in the barn and stuck straight into a pipe like we used to do back then. Just a pure Kentucky Burley taste which has somewhat of a chocolate flavor. WARNING....must be smoked cool and slow to get the flavor. Even though it smokes easy and doesnt bite much it wont have much flavor if you smoke it to hot. Just because there is no bite doesnt mean your not smoking to hot to get the flavor. If your getting a " ashtray" flavor then slow down and let cool. Smoke very slow and cool and that chocolate flavor will come out

Prince Albert
I have tried several different types of types of pipe tobacco. But I always comeback to Prince Albert. Why? Because it is an easy smoking pleasant aroma tobacco.

My lifelong friend
PA must have a magnet in the mix because it keeps drawing me back. I've tried so many blends (can't count them all) over 50 years and the Prince always seems to be my go-to smoke. It's just a simple, down-to-earth, real tobacco with no frills or added come-ons and always delivers the same smooth, flavorful, bite-free anytime bowl. To me, it's not much when you first light it, but it gets better and better deeper in the bowl. PA is THE classic pipe tobacco.

Excellent
Easy to pack, stays lit, little bite, nice nutty flavor. Try it in a churchwarden for a cool smoke.

The best of all.
This is THE classic. It should be called King Albert.

Old Timer
This is a simple pipe tobacco that has stood the test of time. It's tobacco for when you want to just lite it and smoke. Nothing fancy just a good smoke. It has become my go to tobacco.
5 out of 5
My favorite so far
Burns slow, right amount of harshness, good smoke output, and taste amazing. About the only complaint I can even think of is it's picky the way you pack it. I barely pack this stuff and it still burns forever.
5 out of 5
Perfect and simple.
I always have Prince Albert on hand, it's an old favorite that I have smoked for as long as I have smoked a pipe. I have a whole cellar of expensive tobacco, but this is my mainstay. I love a couple bowls of PA first thing in the morning in my favorite cob with my coffee. Its simple, cool burning, easy to light and keep lit and completely bite free. It has that nutty burley taste, lightly sweet with hints of cocoa and possibly anise and scratches that itch for a clean tobacco taste.
5 out of 5
My first smoke every morning
This is straight burley done up in the classic American style, and it is an amazing smoke. I smoke prince Albert at least once or twice a day, sometimes it is the only blend I smoke all day. There are nutty and cocoa flavors that come naturally from the tobacco, in my opinion the halfway point of the bowl is where it really becomes a sweet, rich smoke. There are no bells and whistles here, if you are a burley fan you will probably enjoy it, but I am of the opinion that a cob full of prince Albert Albert Albert huge cup of coffee is a good way to start the day

Prince Albert in a can!
Hello, Prince Albert is a "OK" pipe smoke. Still looking for an old favorite called Union Leader. Will keep looking till I find anything close to it. All the guys who mix pipe tobacco could do allot worse. The off the wall mixes are a waste of time! Paul

Good basic smoking tobacco!
Mild, smooth, no bite, light and good burley flavor. Moderate mic hit. Great for my first morning smoke, great for rolling the occasional ciggerette. Perfect in a cob. I always keep some on hand!

You can take it in the pouch or you can take it in the can. Smoke Prince Albert like a man.

One of my favorite non aromatic blends for a fair price. Mild, slightly sweet, and just a good all day smoke.

An American icon deserving of its legendary status
This one's a classic for good reason! Nothing too complicated here. The Prince is an easygoing smoke in every sense: easy to light, easy to keep lit, easy on the palate, and gentle with the nicotine. There are few pipe tobaccos I can confidently say I'd be able to smoke all day, every day without getting bored, getting bitten, or getting sick. Prince Albert is one of them! A must-try for every new smoker, and a warm companion for the experienced piper.

My Staple for 50 plus years
When all else seems too harsh, too mundane - Prince Albert always satisfies.

My Grandfathers smoked Prince Albert.
Still the same quality as I remember when my grandfathers smoked the Prince. It would have gotten 4 - 5 stars if it can in a metal can instead of a plastic one.

Smooth Burning Tobacco
Pleasant flavor, and it burns very evenly. This tobacco is passive and not as flavorful as Carter Hall, but that might be agreeable to some.

Legacy to Burn
Mr. R. J. Reynolds named Prince Albert after Queen Victoria's son, who changed his name to George VI when he became king of England. Prince Albert was introduced in 1907. It was (one of?) the first tobaccos to be cured with licorice. Licorice contains a substance which is 50 times as sweet as sugar. It takes the bite out of tobacco. In 1913, R.J. Reynolds revealed that Prince Albert, like the Camel cigarettes that were introduced that year, has three constituent tobaccos: Piedmont Bright, a flavored and sweetened Burley from Kentucky, and 10% Turkish leaf. The flavoring contains cocoa. On opening the tub, one can smell the cocoa, but it is not obvious in the smoke. There is good reason why Prince Albert has been a favorite for over a century. It burns well to a fine ash. It is a pleasant, flavorful, and bite-free smoke that is neither overbearing nor cloying. Accept no substitute.

Still a great smoke!
Have enjoyed many aromatic blends purchased here at P&C. For 25 years my old standby is the Prince! My wife never has warmed to the aroma ( you know how wives are!) but it's really one of the only non-biting tobaccos I've ever smoked on a regular basis.......

I just want to say that I have a completely new respect and admiration for Prince Albert. In my search of the best otc burley, this has to be the best hands down! I admit I gave the prince a try when I first began smoking a pipe, and dismissed it as
I just want to say that I have a completely new respect and admiration for Prince Albert. In my search of the best otc burley, this has to be the best hands down! I admit I gave the prince a try when I first began smoking a pipe, and dismissed it as okay. However, after smoking half and half and carter hall, I decided to revisit Prince Albert as half and half was way too sweat for me, and carter hall was a good all around tobacco with some burley, it was still a bit sweet. I tried Sir Walter Raleigh, and found it too be a great otc burley, but still a bit too sweat for me. I purchased several 1.5 oz pouches from my local convenience store. How surprised I was upon retrying Prince Albert. I had finally found the nonsweat burley I had been searching for. Upon figuring I wanted this as my steady all day smoke, I promptly ordered a 14 oz tin. I found that it taste even better out of the tin than the 1.5 oz pouch. This is my newly found favorite burley and will probably remain so. The only acception is the Cornell and Diehl Big and Burley I smoke in the evenings for an even bigger burley experience.

I wanted to write a second review. This tobacco grows on you the more you smoke it! I've been smoking it regularly lately and it's awesome! Just a hint of a chocolate aroma in the pouch. Smooth with no bite. Leaves a slightly sweet flavor on the palette. I can see why it's been around a long time.
BW of Pomona, CA
The perfect yard-work tobacco; stays lit with perfect moisture right out of the bag, simple, enjoyable flavour, almost no tongue bite even when smoking at the fastest of paces with an aroma that'll please even the pickiest of noses
MS of Gladstone, MI
Bought this locally. sadly, i am unaware of any tobacconists any closer to me than 2.5 hours. Thank goodness for P&C and the inter-webs! I wanted to find something locally available that would be consistent, cheap, and enjoyable. All i can get hold of in my town it carter hall, prince albert, middleton cherry and captain black. I knew there were better tobaccos for $2 and ounce, but its been around forever and has a strong following. Maybe this is the way its packed now, but while the box was sealed, the pouch inside was not. The top layer was very dry. farther down the pouch it was acceptable moist. i thought this odd. i could swear the last few Middleton products i bought had sealed pouches. Weird. Pouch note, don't know why but i always get raisins, or dried fruit from this, sort of cigarette-ish, still enjoyable. lights and smokes well enough, easy to pack. I liked it, didn't hate it, but didn't fall in love either. Will i keep it around, sure! cheap, reliable and easy to smoke. Whats not to love right!
JB of lakeside, IA
I tried Prince Albert for the first time after smoking a pipe for nearly 40 years. It's a great pipe tobacco, one that I can smoke all day. A very rich flavor, nice even burn and a very pleasant room note. Now I know why brands such as 'The Prince' had endured.

My go to tobacco when I'm breaking in new pipes and also my every day smoke when I want something simple.
MS of Frankfort, KY
PA is my all day everyday smoke. At night I like to have a bowl of something more complex and expensive but this is my meat and potatoes. Russ has created a cheaper and just as tasty recreation in his Mid-Town series Prince Andrew. Nothing beats a cob, cup of coffee and SLOWWW sipping some Prince Albert.... Its a legend and deservingly so!!
JD of Henderson, NV
Good stuff and great in a cob! Very similar to Carter Hall.
BW of Pomona, CA
I hope they get more in soon this is one great tobacco, it tastes great, has no tongue bite and leaves a pleasant room note that people will love or tolerate.
KJ of Aiea, HI
I am glad I let Prince Albert out of his can! All bad jokes aside this will probably be my go-to everyday tobacco blend. It is smooth, the moisture is perfect out of the tub, smokes cool and dry and has zero bite. It comes as no surprise that this stuff has been around for over 100 years.
CS of Pittsburgh, PA
There's a reason why PA has been around since 1907. It's pure, straightforward, smoking pleasure.
ND of Morristown, TN
Try it, you might like it. I do. And I like Latakia blends and Pease's virginias and other fancy stuff too. Nothing wrong with a classic, and this is a classic for a reason. It's not what you'd call an aromatic, either-- somehow I always got the impression that these "drug store" blends were. Not so. Just a lightly topped burley with great style. I could smoke it all day.
JL of Martinez, CA
I really enjoy this pipe tobacco. My wife had an uncle who smoked this many years ago and I always enjoyed the aroma. I finally purchased some and love it. Weird I guess as I always come back to the older brands of pipe tobacco. I regularly smoke Half and Half, Velvet and now this. I try other types of tobacco but always come back to this type. Always fresh, no bite, pleasant aroma and great with my morning coffee!
JK of San Bernardino, CA
This is my regular. I like the taste, the way it smokes, and the fact that it is reliable pouch after pouch. Great with a cup of coffee.
KK of Hernando, FL
I have had this tobacco recently and can say that the strength of the tobacco i had was strong. If you are looking for a good smoke that will not break the bank this is a great tobacco to try.
TW of Odessa, MO
I've been smoking Prince Albert since 1995. It is my favorite. This is the only site I am aware of that still has it. Wish it was not on "back order"
RB of Redondo Beach, CA
It was the first pipe tobacco I ever tried, and has been a staple in my rotation ever since. I first bought it because it was the favorite of my grandfather. It is a flavorful and delicious smoke when the virginia comes out and the cavendish smooths it al out. I love PA and I always will.
