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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Big Fan
I am a fan of aeros and this is my second favorite (Spring Training is my favorite). Smooth and mellow with a touch of sweetness.
Customer Testimonials
Go ahead and order a few ounces for yourself if your contemplating this blend,purely for the aroma from the pouch. The moment I opened this bag I knew it was gonna be one of my favorite monthly blends, aroma is great, and its a nice mild smoke to take a break with. Though I do wish more of the flavor came through during the smoke, there is no bite, and its not spongy wet. Good smoke to always keep on the self.
Pick up a couple of ounces of Pirate's Cove because I really enjoy trying Russ's Monthly Blend. Have smoked 5 or 6 bowls of it, the pouch smell is fantastic; really love that maple/vanilla smell. It smokes well with absolutely no bite but I am unable to pick up any of the flavor/taste, so it smokes fairly bland.
Very nice mellow smoke. Smells fantastic in the bag and the bowl, no bite the minute I opened the bag it reminded me of a smell from my grandfather but I can't put my finger on it but a very familiar aroma.
