Russ' Tastykake Sale

A few years ago, when Russ was still pressing tobaccos himself, he made a new blend based off 10 to Midnight, but with some Perique and black Cavendish added to it. He had made up a large batch, but for some reason, it never wound up being put on the website. When we rediscovered it, samples were passed around the office and we knew that we had to make it available. In fact, Eric enjoyed it so much, he said we should name it Tastykake. There's a limited amount made, so you'll want to get some right away if you love Latakia.

Smoky Goodness
I am really impressed with this blend! It's got plenty of smoky latakia goodness. It's a great all day smoke when paired with your morning coffee or evening bourbon.

Tastykake
I have been smoking a pipe for over 50 years and this is the first crumble cake that I have tried. Tastykake is an appropriate name. I love the taste. It smokes cool, is easy to keep lit, my wife likes the aroma and no tongue bite. It doesn't get much better than this one. Keep it coming.

Just like the name says TASTY.
Russ O has done it again. Another fabulous combination that lives up to its name. While it is not as "full" as some of his other Lat blends, this one is just right for that Lat taste with enough sweetness to keep you coming back. My not so refined taste buds put this in a great crossover catagory with a good kick. Love this stuff. Get it while it lasts.

Second times a charm
Hopefully they will post this review instead of my first review. My first review was based on user error. This was my first time using a kake tobacco and I just picked off bits of the kake and packed the bowl with them to smoke. Not the best way to smoke this blend. Afterwards I smoked Peterson Irish flake where you have to rub out the tobacco. First time with a flake as well. I revisited this afterwards and applied the same technique before packing and it made quite the difference. Now I can see why they call it tastykake it brought out the flavor very nicely still smooth, mellow, well aged no bite but now I can taste the flavor much better. Very nice tobacco.

Great smoke! Such a shame it's a limited quantity blend.
Russ! You have GOT to make more Tastykake! This stuff is delicious and smooth! Such a satisfying smoke. I bought 2 oz and now wish I had bought a pound! It came in a tightly compressed and hardy cake. The 2 oz I bought were the size of a small brownie, but the weight is justified - the stuff is dense. It crumbles nicely. The moisture content is great for the flavor but it does require frequent re-lights, which is of no consequence. It's all about flavor! It's a great balance of English smokiness, smoothness, and light sweetness. Thanks for the surprise release!

It's ok.
Not a bad blend, mellow, well aged, smooth, no bite. However my wife doesn't like the room note and with the name I expected a bit more flavor. Glad I gave it a try but not really my cup of tea. Gonna have to smoke this outside. May try getting some latakia to add to it to give it some kick.
