Russ' Winding Brook

Russ went back to what people expect from him when he created Winding Brook. This is a classic English blend that’s simply smoky Latakia mixed with sweet Virginia and tasty Orientals. Smooth and rich, Winding Brook delivers everything you want in a cool-smoking Latakia blend. It's a rich blend, but it's not overwhelming or too smoky. This is a perfect example of “less is more.”

Unusual flavor
i like it. Has a very distinctive flavor. Which sold me. No tongue bite. and a very good smoke.

Not what I was expecting, but not bad.
Thought I was ordering an aromatic, This is definitely not. But overall a nice tobacco, It was pretty dry, that's my only real complaint.

Comparable
This stuff is very good. To my taste it has a little more spice than MATCH MM 965 but not bad...if you were to buy in bulk I'd say buy which ever is cheaper WB or MMM965

Winding Brook
By far my new fav of Russ’ Bulk Blends. Carefully purchased two ounces to start with on 5/1/19, received my order on 5/8/19 and a week later (with rationing) I’ve smoked it all. It’s a less Smokey more oriental forward Fiddlesticks, kinda what I really wanted after smoking Fiddlesticks for months. Great blend!

A pleasant surprise
I purchased this out of curiosity and I had mixed feelings about the wisdom of my choice when I first smelled the tobacco in its bag. It reminded me of Plum Pudding but harsher on the nose. Smoking it was a pleasant surprise despite that first impression. The moisture level was perfect, it burns slowly and well and has a room scent that is hard to describe but very pleasant, I think the Virginia is just barely dominant. However thats offset by the other tobaccos of the blend and overall its more complex than it first seems and if anything gets better as it burns down. I tried adding some Captain Black Dark, just a pinch but though it worked out nicely, I'm no blender and frankly its best to leave well enough alone. An excellent smoke, I'd have added a star but I like to hold that in reserve for something truly exceptional, if it should happen to come along. On reflection I think this is better than Plum Pudding in the pipe.
