Russ' Sugar Plum Sale


Just in time for the Christmas season comes Russ' Monthly Blend for December 2015 - Sugar Plum. This blend uses two different types of black Cavendish - one made of Green River Burley, and the other begins as sweet, yellow Virginia. These are combined with zesty bright flue-cured, and mellow air-cured leaf. What really makes Sugar Plum a real holiday time treat is the addition of dark fruit notes, and a smooth sweetness. People will love it almost as much as the scent of a fresh holiday baked goods, and you'll definitely enjoy it more than Aunt Marge's famous fruitcake.

Average Smoke
The flavor of this blend was just Ok for my pallet. I liked the aroma out of the pouch be it didn't seem to translate once smoke.m Not a terrible smoke, just not one I'd would buy again.

Very nice
I really like this blend and cant wait for it to be back in stock. It smokes nicely and it' a very well balanced blend, smooth and sweet. I'm a Latakia lover though and usually smoke an English blend. However, I like to keep some of Russ' Sugar Plum on hand so I can switch it up every now and then when I'm in the mood for something a little sweeter. I hope it's back in stock soon.

Good Stuff, Weekly Rotation Tobacco
Good Smoke, Good Flavor, Smoked well from the top of the bowl to the bottom but the flavor seemed light for an aromatic.

Fooled Me Again
OK, We should all know no tobacco smells & taste the same to every smoker! For me, this blend smells better than a lot of others I've smoked over the 52 years of puffing. There is no sweet taste, smells nothing like food of any kind, no comparison to Mama's cooking, but it burns good & no tung bite, subtle room note, nothing to shout about. It's just as mild as I want it to be. I like very, very rich aromatic blends, so I'll give it 3 stars because its' just a tobacco that I paid for.

Look out Captain black original
This delightful blend in my opinion is a perfect match for Captain Black regular in the white pouch. That being said, it has a wonderful roomnote, and sweet taste when you tap your tonge on the draw hole of the pipe. Your tastebuds will come alive with a sweet sugary explosion. It burns really cool with no bite right down to the bowls bottom. This blend saves me alot of money. Sorry captain! Russ this is the first of many of your blends that I will be trying.

Killer aromatic with no bite
I decided to give this blend a try. Its a sweet smelling aromatic, which burns smoothly right down to the bowl. It has no bite what so ever. It will be in my rotation for now on.

I liked
Im trying all types of tobacco. I liked it. I want to try most of Russ blends. I tried nations capital And snow drift. I tried a VaPer blend that tasted so good. I think im going to use that as a base and blend it with the aro ones. I dont think Russ has a VaPer blend? Id love to try there take on a vaper. The one i have is very creamy and tasty. Sugar plum thumbs up 👍

Very nice room note
Very nice aroma out of the bag, The wife enjoyed the rich room note. The smoke was easy and did not bite, The flavor was more pronounced during the first few puffs but faded more as it burned down, All in all a very good smoke that I would recommend and a solid 4 star review

Russ Sugar Plum
Smells good at first but after smoking down to half a bowl the flavor fades away.It's not a Sweet Blend As the name says Sugar PLum.I asked Russ to create a blend of Apple & Peach which is sold in the UK and I have smoked a Tin of it and the flavor stays all the way down the bowl.The Taste is great and the Aroma as well. I wish he would make some as it would be a great seller!

Good Smoke.
This is a very cool mellow smoke. Not just for the Holidays. You can enjoy it all year round. If it's sold all year that is.

Tis the season for this jolly blend!!
Fantastic smoke Russ!! Outstanding flavor of a cinnamon coated holiday cookie. People at work say the aroma is outstanding and the bowl smokes cool, no matter how hard I puff to get it all in on my smoke breaks. I am sorry to say this has more cinnamon flavor then your Cinnamon Roll Monthy Blend. Its not hot or spicy but just right.
