Good stuff
One of my two favorite tobaccos . Nice to smoke , has a great taste with no aftertaste .

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.

Pince Albert
I've smoked the aromatics for years but now I alternate between Prince Albert and Carter Hall. A mellower smoke and easier on the pipes.

A re-discovered classic!
I had not seen PA pipe tobacco in a long while. I'm getting back into pipes and am reacquaintingmyself with some of the stuff I used to smoke. My buddy and found some PA pouches at some 'smoke shop'. Bought two and left. I opened mine in the car. I liked it as soon as I opened the pouch. The smell reminded me of the shop where a very old friend worked. I lit up a bowl of PA at my friend's house and we kicked back with a big cup of coffee and talked well into the night. We both smoked PA that night and it is now in my top 5 American tobaccos. I was surprised at the consistancy of flavor from pouch to pouch. Soon to try in a cob. I guess the good stuff really does stick around.

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.

Boring and Burley
Sort of a boring OTC blend. I get a bit of bite with this for some reason, as with most of these shelf stabilized blends. Flavor is unremarkable, maybe a bit of an anise flavoring? I received negative comments on the room note (unusual), though to me I can't detect much of anything. It smells like any non-aromatic to me. I'm not sure how this blend has lasted so long.

Sour burley
I was put off by the chemical taste. Becomes sour, tarry and harsh very quickly.

Good Smoke
I'm new to this as I am a cigarette smoker switching to pipe smoking. PA is mellow, light flavor and mild enough that I can inhale from time to time. I like it!

John Wayne Forever Classic
On my 16th birthday my dad, a pipe smoker, came to me and said," boy, if you're smoke, smoke this". And he handed me a cello wrapped pipe with two packs of Prince Albert. That was 45 years ago. I smoked it for a good while along with many other strange tobacco's from our local pipe and tobacco shop. Flakes coins discs, etc. and I really didn't know what to do with that stuff but Prince Albert was the simplest tobacco I had come across. For fear at that age of looking stupid, I never asked how to hadle those, as I look back, Fine tobaccos. I got away from it for many many years as my life changed along with my smoking habits. Just last week I decided to look at simpler tobacco and came across a box of PA that had been hiding in a drawer for a loooong time. WOW, I had forgotten how nice a tobacco this is. Man it's a Forever Classic in my opinion. I am about to retire in a few weeks and I've been searching for something in bulk and a good price to stock up on. I think I have found a new staple to keep around. Great aroma, cut, burn, taste and nice medium nicotine level. You know, I haven't heard or read ANYWHERE, people saying that it's not like it used to be. This is like the John Wayne of tobaccos. Everybody knows of it and most smokers warm their memories with it.

Its alright in a pinch.
Ehh, not terrible. Won't be buying anymore though.

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.

Why did this tobacco conquer the west?
I am an archaeologist and I was super excited about trying Prince Albert. You see, I consider Prince Albert the tobacco that conquered the west. It used to come in a metal tin about the size of the cardboard 1.5 oz box they now use. Walk almost anywhere in the American west long enough and you will find a pile of rusting tin cans. Search those cans and you will almost always find at least one Prince Albert can. They were also used to hold mining claims and hidden in cairns that marked said claims. I was happy to find they existed and I looked forward to trying the tobacco that conquered the west. Sadly, I find that it tastes unremarkable and leaves a almost cigarette-flavored aftertaste in my mouth. It's a good thing I was never a cowboy or miner in the old west.

Not very pleasant in taste or smell.
Not very pleasant in taste or smell. It smells too much like a generic, non-descript, cigarette. It doesn't bite but it leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.

Very nice smoke
I have smoked a pipe for decades and until recently never tried PA. I missed out! It's a great tobacco and I understand why it's been a staple brand for so long. A very pleasant mild smoke from start to finish. Give it a go and don't let "drug store blend" dissuade you.

Great staple tobacco
This is a good one to have as a staple tobacco. Good flavor with a pleasant, mild, and enjoyable smoke.

Rediscovering an old friend
Over the past many years, I have spent a fortune, or so it seems, on top shelf cigars. After the new year, I decided to take my old pipes for a spin and immediately went for some PA. I smoked pipes years ago and neglected them for the simplicity of cigar smoking. And although I still love my cigars, I am totally enjoying my old pipes including an old MM from years back filled with PA. I ordered several new cobs from P&C and they are already in the rotation. PA is just a great smoking experience, no frills, just a pleasant taste and a great aroma. I am now trying different "blends" mixing in some of my favorite aromatics such as some of the Captain Black blends. I recommend anyone to go for the Prince, probably the best on the market.

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

Great for a beginner like me. Not a fan of the top note.
Pros: This is a very forgiving tobacco. It is a very cool dry smoke with no tongue bite. It is very easy to pack because of the cut. The tobaccos are of good quality, and taste very good. Cons: The only problem I have is sort of a big one for me, the top note. First I must mention it is certainly not a liquor flavor like Pipes And Cigars lists. I didn't see any reviews describing it as such. I have seen a review on here that mentioned liquorice; that seems plausible as I really don't like the flavor of liquorice. To me though, it smells and tastes fruity, like rotting pears or dates (which smell good to me but taste bad). Many of the comments on here mention cocoa, and there probably is a little, but that is overwhelmed for me by the strange rotten fruit (or possibly liquorice) flavor. Overall: Although my pros section is shorter, it should be given more weight since there are more of them and the con is more subjective. This really is a great smoke. Definitely give this a try as a beginner. Do not start with an aromatic, or a flake because the learning curve is too high. You need to start with something forgiving and so far this is the most forgiving I have found. The tobacco flavors are great too, but the top note will not be for everyone.

An excellent classic american blend
Prince albert was the first pipe tobacco I started smoking. I especially enjoy it after my morning buttered toast and jelly. Great flavor and great service from p&c

Very simple blend. Burns and packs easy. Added a dab of 1Q to give it a little boost. Not bad stuff.

One of the very best!
This is one of the best, if not the best OTC blends of all time. It is never to moist or to dry and there is never any tongue bite. For those of you who are just starting out in the wonderful world of pipe smoking this is a great blend to try. It Should be called King Albert because it is the King of the OTC tobaccos.

Its okay.
It's a decent smoke, mellow not a lot of flavor, at least not that i, as a novice can taste.

It'll Do 'til something Better comes along...
PRINCE ALBERT is what my Big Brother started smoking back in 1956 ,I was intrigued by the Mini pipe and the smell of the tobacco and ritual of smoking so that now as a still new(even still after 10 years to pipe smoking)I'm still experiencing what for me are new and sometimes eclectic brands & flavors,like Lataka & Brands Like LANE,for example and Prince Albert to see what others have known and found pleasure in for ages....PA is IMO a beginners smoke ,very mild and just a basic pipe filler not much range of taste or room note ,I won't put this in my Top 10 LineUp.... just if there's nothing else to available list for me.

No "Thanks for the Memories"
I bought my first pipe in 1970. (I still smoke it regularly) My very first tobacco was Borkum Riff Whiskey. I smoked it almost exclusively for years. My only other tobacco back then was Prince Albert. The nutty burley was a welcome contrast to the sweetness of the BR. I tried it again for the first time recently and I was disappointed. The PA seemed dry and had little taste in any of my briars (one was new) my Meers, or my cobs. I still enjoy the Borkum, but the Prince has abdicated.

Smooth as silk, tasty. Test of time PASSED here with flying colors. This "been around forever" pipe tobacco shows why it's been around forever. Love it.

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

Oldie but quickie
All the positive reviews reflect the true nature of this oldie. I have smoked it off and on for 50+ years. What they don't say is that it BURNS LIKE GUN POWDER. You no sooner start to enjoy the flavorful mildness and you are at the bottom of the bowl. Thus 3 stars.

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!

American burley classic!
Prince Albert is a no nonsense burley American Classic.It gets the job done for a price that's hard to beat.This has been around for generations and it's cool to be part of its history by lighting up a big bowl.

You can take it in the pouch or you can take it in the can. Smoke Prince Albert like a man.
I smoke p.a. between orlik golden sliced, my two favorite tobacco's. You can't go wrong with the Prince.

This is the standard!
Prince Albert is a favorite of just about everyone I know. It's a standard bearer from way back. My grandfather use to carry a tin in his overalls all the time. Too bad they do not sell it in the tin can anymore though.

A Very Fine Tobacco
I found this tabacco, very enjoyable with a nutty flavor . The only way I can describe it is like Carter Hall but has a fuller flavor. I love both & there is no tongue bite. The price can't be beat. Now we know why it has been a staple for years & years, (VLS)

It's not complicated, it's just tobacco.
I love this. I've dabbled in pipe smoking for decades, off for a while, on for a while. My dad smoked Half and Half and some sort of Apple tobacco in a pouch when I was growing up and I loved the smell of his pipe. Prince Albert takes me back to those memories. I've tried many different types of tobacco (the only thing I can't do so far is anything with Latakia in it!) and I find Prince Albert to be uncomplicated but highly satisfying. I like burley blends, and this one rings the bell for me. It packs easily, lights easily, smokes easily and has a very pleasant, nutty, tobacco-y flavor. The aroma is pleasing, as well. I never feel like I have to savor the under-notes, admire the grass and hay essences or plumb the depths of smokiness, etc. it's just pipe tobacco and it's really, really good. If complex flavor is what you are looking for, the Prince might leave you nonplussed. If you want a pleasurable smoke that allows you to smoke and do something else at the same time, give PA a try.

Hard to go wrong with this tobacco, mellow smoke with no bite. Just returning to pipe smoking after a long hiatus and it's a good place to begin.

the prince is still around for a reason.
It's Prince Albert, what more can you say? Burns evenly, kinda nutty, readily available, and the pouches are pretty much always right on the money for humidity. It's easy to mix half a pinch of this or that into it if you want to attempt a cheap blend, so far so good.

Low bite, Low flavor
I am new to pipe smoking but found this tobacco to be lacking in the flavor department. Does not bite my tongue like some aromatics I have been smoking. Easy to pack and keep lit though.

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

Excellent American Old School Tobacco!
I tend to switch back-and-forth between an aromatic and American/English blends and I'm just now getting into VaPer's; but Prince Albert is a good change of pace as it is still a good rich mellow pipe tobacco with no bite. It's a great all day smoker as well as good for first thing in the morning when my palette is not awake yet :-). Absolutely consistent pouch after pouch,can after can. No it's not my regular daily tobacco, not part of my rotation, but I smoke a little every few days and like to have it on hand for those times you just get tired of your regular rotation. I strongly urge everyone who has not smoked Prince Albert to try it! Between Prince Albert and Walter Raleigh, Prince Albert wins hands-down in my book.

Old School Tobacco
This tobacco is a classic for a reason. It's easy to light, easy to smoke, and just plain simple and enjoyable. It's going to give you the same experience time and again. Prince Albert was the tobacco of choice for my grandfather and many other grandfathers. These are the men that didn't mess around, they knew what worked. It's got a nice tangy, nutty, slightly sweet tobacco flavor with a decent shot of nicotine. It's a great blend to break in a new pipe or maybe you just want something simple. Prince Albert is a classic!
5 out of 5
Great classic tobacco!
I didnt have high expectations for this tobacco at all but I really enjoyed it. I bought it to break in some pipes of mine and found myself really liking it. Very forgiving tobacco for a newbie like me. Stayed lit and no tongue bite. I think I'm going to have to buy some more and add this to my daily rotation!
5 out of 5
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.

Recent Prince Albert purchase.
I received the pouch, and immediately began smoking the tobacco. It is, indeed, mild and cool. A worthwhile purchase, which I've smoked practically all day. Thanks, P&C.

An Honest Tobacco
As a new smoker this is my first try at PA. I found it has a nice aroma, stays lit and overall a good honest tobacco. Not as sweet as Carter Hall of which I really enjoy and am on my second pouch.

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.

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.

First time trial, but far from the last!
Been a serious pipe smoker for a little over a year now, and will admit, I've usually leaned toward aromatic blends (Main thing you find in the tobacco shops here in Texas. Esp the in house blended bulk ones. I had always heard so much grant reviews on Prince Albert, and figured I would give this a trial run. I must say when I got it today I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my first bowl of it. Clean and no tongue bite. Likely going to become one of my day-to-day packings..

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 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.

Customer Testimonials
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.
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
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!
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.
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!!
Good stuff and great in a cob! Very similar to Carter Hall.
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.
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.
There's a reason why PA has been around since 1907. It's pure, straightforward, smoking pleasure.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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"
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.
