This is my first time
This is my first time to try Russ' Rocking Chair, but it's a great blend for an easy smoke! I'll definitely be ordering more in the future

Simply Consistent
Simplicity and consistency are the hallmarks of this blend. It's a reliably mild, delicious, and cool burning smoke. Very refreshing to find a blend that successfully showcases just the natural flavors of Burley and Virginia tobaccos.

For the Mild Burley Fan
If you like Burley this is a good choice, been trying different burley blends and I like this one. I am a Carter Hall fan so this is a similar tobacco, another one to try on this burley line would be Sutliff Burley and Brigadier Black Waterloo. Rocking Chair is a solid OTC - all day blend with little detectable topping and no bite, so the taste of the tobacco really comes through. Buy an ounce and give it a try.

Dependably good...
Love this stuff! Just bought another 3oz. It’s an all day smoke; nutty, a little sweet, faint hints of chocolate here and there that is likely from the burley, no topping though. There’s no “wow” factor here but for some reason, it’s simplicity is what brings me back to it every time. When I don’t know what I’m in the mood to smoke, I reach for this. It burns well, little to no relights, ( I smoke this blend when I’m on my tractor and need my hands for driving, not tamping and relighting. That ought to tell you something about how well it burns😬)easy on the tongue and the flavor is unassuming but ever present and depending on the pipe, it takes on slightly different but familiar flavors. It has a special place in my rotation and one of my favorites.

Respectable blend
I bought this because of the reviews. I must say, it was pretty good and deserves at least 3 stars as the quality of the tobacco is there and it’s an easy smoke. loses its interest half way through the bowl. Turns kind of one note and bland after a bit. But the first half of the bowl usually keeps my attention and I thoroughly enjoy it for that half bowl. It’s not going to blow you away with anything....but it’s pleasant and sometimes that’s all we need when sitting on a rocking chair.

This is a very smooth, no bite smoke. It is also long burning. Definitely all day smoke. On my list of favorites.

I know what I like
This is a very good, mild tobacco tasting...well, tobacco! I enjoy aromatics on occasion. I enjoy a Latakia bowl every morning. I enjoyed this tobacco because it was neither an aromatic or a latakia. It smokes cool and slow. I'll be buying again.

Tasty all day smoke
I hardly ever write reviews. This is a beautiful tobacco as an all day smoke. Just now finishing up my OZ I got from Father’s Day. Its creamy, nutty & a tad sweet but not too sweet. This is a Tobacco that reminds me of the older OTC blends that are fantastic. This blend is great for all pipe smokers. It packs really easy, lights easy and smokes really easy. I hope its not backordered for too long. Sweet smokes!

Simply Brilliant
I've been looking for something like this for a long, long time. The Virginia's and Burley meld together beautifully. The Burley, is very non-threatening yet very present in this non-biting blend. Add a touch of sweetness...and I do mean just a touch, and you end up with a tongue friendly, all day tobacco with a very nice, old-timey room note. Gramps would have loved this. Kudos to Russ for another "keeper" blend. It's simply brilliant!

Wasn’t impressed with the “bag note”. After a couple of bowels, however, this blend is nothing short of brilliant and exactly what I’ve been searching for. The burly really comes through but in a non- threatening way and offers a pleasant. nuttiness. Add the slightest tough of “sweet” and you have a non-biting,mellow, all day smoke. Kudos!!!

Rocking Chair Bliss
Just as advertised, Russ' Rocking Chair is a mellow Cavendish made with sweet Virginias and smooth, nutty Burleys. And minimal flavoring was added to allow real tobacco flavor to come through. This is quite a pleasant blend that's perfect for sitting in your comfy chair. It's a type of blend that used to be a lot more common in days gone by, and many of us have been seeking for years. If you puff it gently, you will be rewarded with a delightful mellow lightly sweet smoke. Kudos to Russ Ouellette for creating an understated masterpiece!
