Sir Walter Raleigh Regular


Sir Walter Raleigh Regular is a cross-cut tobacco made with rich but mellow Burley. Popular since 1927, this is definitely an all-day type of blend with a pleasant aroma, and good, solid tobacco flavor. There are hints of anise and molasses in the taste, but the primary notes are chocolate and nuts which come from the Burley itself.  See for yourself why this eminently affordable blend is the go-to for so many pipe enthusiasts for so long, and you know that you'll save even more on Sir Walter Raleigh Regular with P&C's every day low prices.

I used to smoke this
I used to smoke this all the time in the 1970's, but since I've gone to Captain Black original, nothing seems to taste as good. I continue to try all kinds of blends, but haven't found anything that satisfies consistently like Captain Black original.

I purchase this product for
I purchase this product for a friend and he stated that he like it. Gave it a 5 stars. But he stated he do not give reviews on tobacco. It's similar to wine or beer. It's to the purchasers' taste in regards to the products. Basically, to one's taste.

A Great All American Blend!
Great authentic American pipe tobacco that has stood the test of time! I started smoking a pipe on January 3, 1971 and have been a faithful pipe smoker ever since. In that 47 years I’ve seen a lot of changes and a lot of things stay the same. This resurgence of original American blends doesn’t surprise me. I call it “Snob Fatigue”. What’s called “Old Codger blends are excellent American blends made to be enjoyed in a pipe and have given people years of tobacco pleasure! Sir Walter Raleigh is one of the best! Flavorful with no bite, slow burning with consistent flavor can after can! This and Lane Ready Rub are my favorites with LRR my mainstay and Sir Walter an old friend I visit on a regular basis. My best friend (my pipe!) enjoys the regular visits! The subtle casings don’t mask the true tobacco flavor and make Sir Walter a pleasurable all day smoke; never lets me down! Thumbing a bowl full of Sir Walter; weather working, playing or just thinking about stuff with a good cup of coffee, makes everything better. Everyone I know likes the aroma as well. Try a pouch or can of this American blend, you won’t regret it, briar or cob!

It was really nice trying this out again, however.....
It had been a while - like twenty years - since I tried SWR, so I thought it might be fun to try it out again. I must say, I really enjoyed this tobacco - a nice, refined mixture with a gentle aroma. I was thinking about buying a can, until I tried P&C Match Blend John Rolfe, which is twice as nice, a much more robust flavor, and a more noticeable and beguiling aroma. If you like SWR, then I would encourage you to trundle over to the "Bulk Tobacco Alternatives" and try the John Rolfe match. I believe you'll be pleasantly surprised.

A charming bit of pipe history!
I didn't think I'd ever refer to a tobacco as "charming" but this one fits the bill. It's an old-timey pouch tobacco with generations of followers, and the flavor is relatively mild but with enough character that it stands out on it's own and in your memory, so you can understand why it's fans don't get bored of it. Like any pouch tobacco, there's probably a little polypropylene glycol that lends a slightly greasy mouth feel and a little residue in the pipe, but the real oddity about this is the "oatmeal" like cut of the tobacco, which burns unusually hot. I got best results from a wide-bowled bulldog pipe.

Definitely recommend it
I loved it. Wish I had the proper jar to store it in, but otherwise it kept pretty well in the can it came in. I would definitely recommend it as an everyday smoke. It's gentle yet still packs enough kick to get the job done.

Good Ol' Walty
I'm no tobacco expert, and have a hard time distinguishing one tobacco from another. Walter is definitely different from everything else. Not necessary better or worse, but it's different from, say, Captain Black. Nice to have Walter for a change of pace.

Surprised by SWR
My first ever SWR arrived from Pipes n Cigars very quickly. I just was curious to try old pipe tobacco that have been Around for generations n I'm glad I'm glad I finally did. I'd been a premium English Dunhill etc. Snob for too long. SWR really surprised me. Nice smoothness , stays lit consistent throughout the entire smoke . Very interesting flavor n no bite Nice to find an inexpensive classic that I love for my rotation .....PnC gets it to me fast n should be getting more along with an order of Prince Albert to see how that compares ! No more snobbery for me

At First I hated It - Now it's a Favorite
I picked this up at my local tobacco store after reading some good things about it. I'm in my mid 20s and pretty new to pipe smoking. A lot of old timers were raving about SWR so I thought I'd give it a go. I didn't really know what I was getting into when I first opened the pouch and it looked as if all the tobacco was dry and had a small cut that I wasn't used to. I initially assumed that this must either be the cheapest bargain bin tobacco in the world or it had just been sitting on the shelf too long. I did some research and sure enough this was how it was supposed to be and what people liked about it. I just didn't understand coming from my small world of regular cut, sweet and wet Cavendish. Sadly, the first few times I smoked it I hated it. I thought it must be the most bland and one note tobacco I'd ever tried. But luckily I kept at it as I'm not one to waste good money (or tobacco). One day things just clicked into place for me and I got it. I understood what the fuss was about. I filled my pipe as some old timers on the forums recommended by just dragging my pipe through the pouch and was surprised at how quick and easy it was to load this cut of tobacco. I noticed that I didn't have the tongue bite that came with the wetness of Cavendish thanks to its natural dryness. I stopped hunting for the flavor and the subtlety of the flavors just came on their own. I was surprised at how many flavors I was getting from what I initially thought was a one note kinda smoke. Every now and then it would be sweet and full of that molasses flavor then sometimes it would be more earthy and pure. Sometimes the anise would be just barely noticeable and then other times it would be right in my face and almost overpowering. The thing I found I didn't enjoy was this spicy note that comes and goes. Kinda similar to tongue bite but I knew from my history it wasn't. This is the only thing I find occasionally unpleasant about SWR, but not enough to hate it anymore.

Still cool
Howdy, best pipe tobacco for the last 50 years for me. Always mild with a great aroma and smokes cool especially in a corn cob pipe. So glad to find a source for it.

Thanks P&C
Pipes and Cigars has always been great in service and product. I would not dream of going anywhere else, besides I have saved a lot of money by using Pipes and Cigars. Brick and mortar are so high now a days and they don't have the selection. Anyway, thanks Pipes and Cigars for all the years of great service and I look forward to many more years to come.

unexpected and different
SWR has a distinct clove flavor. It seems to be an acquired taste. It isn't harsh, but it is...different. Give it a try for something a little different. I purchased it because dad smoked it in his Dunhill pipe many years ago. I may have chosen the wrong mixture. I will try the other. I'll purchase a smaller amount to try.

Not Prince Albert,But Not A Bad Smoke,Either.
Flavor not as good as Prince Albert,but still not a bad Smoke,either.Slow puffing is required here,or you may experiance toungue bite.And use a clean pipe.Easy filling.I don’t think there is a way to pack this too tight,good air flow around the tobacco.Good break in tobacco,or full on every day smoke.

What took me so long?
I've only recently discovered SWR while on vacation in the Catskills. I'd forgotten to pack my tobacco, and the convenience store near our place only had one brand, and only one pouch, and it was SWR. What a pleasant surprise after all these years. Really mellow and tasty, all day smoke with no bite. Now I'm a regular user, what took me so long?
3 out of 5
Not my Favorite OTC
Since the early 60's have smoked mainly OTC blends with Half & Half being my main smoke for over 40 years. Been smoking Granger for the past couple of years. Prince Albert filled in the gaps. Would smoke SWR but could never get the satisfaction I received from the other blends. Also it would quickly dry out in my roll-up pouch. Not my favorite.
5 out of 5
Good Stuff
SWR is a very satisfying smoke without all the added flavor syrups in other brands.

Been smoking Raleigh Regular for 47 years
So I had better give it 5 stars, huh? It's a good, smooth blend that's always suited me despite the wife preferring I smoked the aromatic stuff that rips holes in my tongue. When you move from cigarettes to a pipe, you want something with the same 'mouth sense' as a Viceroy or in my case, a Camel. I'm an everyday smoker, not a hobbyist. Raleigh works for me.

Awesome stuff all around, flavor lacking a little
Stuff packs easier then any other tobacco I've used. The cut, moisture, and pliability are top notch. No bite, and doesn't leave moisture/gunk in bottom. Only took one star off for flavor. It smells good and taste ok but I've tasted better tobacco's like Prince Albert or Half and Half. This stuff is awesome tobacco though. Seems to taste better the more you smoke it out of the same pipe.

Great Neutral Burley Flavor. Odd cut is not great for beginners.
Pros: Great light natural burley flavor. I couldn't taste the top note. Cons: Odd smelling top note that did not effect the flavor at all. The cut is not shredded, it is like small rolled up balls. This makes it a little tougher to pack than the regular ribbon cut. I'm sure once you get the hang of it is fine, but not for a beginner. It had a very tiny amount of bite if I got slightly fast or lit too hot; probably due to improper packing since I am a beginner. Overall: This is a great neutral flavor that everyone should check out for a cheap go-to/break-in tobacco. I may use this as a break-in tobacco if I don't find something equal or less neutral that is easier to pack.

Not for me
When I don't smoke one of my English blends I will go to Carter Hall, Velvet or Half and Half. I tried SWR and found the first half good. The last half went down hill for me. I kept going to it once a week in a cob or briar. No change, it just left a bad taste after the first half. Not for me. I tend to be a puffer and maybe it was smoking to hot.

Comfortable as an old pair of shoes.!
This, in my humble opinion is the best of the old fashioned American Burley blends that have existed since before WWII. Simple nutty, chocolate flavor with a touch of molasses and a whisper of licorice. Although good on its own in a cob, this tobacco blended 50/50 with Cornell and Diehl's Crooner is one of my favorite home blends. Actually it goes well with any cube cut Burley or bulk Virginia.

Not Too Impressed.
I'm a new pipe smoker and I'm going through all the old-time OTC "drugstore" brands to find the one I want to have a can on hand for an everyday smoke. Then I'll sample all the fancier stuff. I didn't care much for SWR, I'm sorry to say. It left a bad taste in my mouth and tasted to me like a cheap cigar. So far, Prince Albert is topping my list, but I'm growing more and more fond of my can of Granger every day so it's becoming a neck-and-neck race. Still have Velvet, Half & Half, Carter Hall and a few others to try. Didn't care much for Captain Black Gold or Regular so I don't think I'm much of an aromatic fan.

Stands the test of time AMAZINGLY well !
Tried a bunch of new blends, really don't have anything bad to say about them at all. Finally tried SWR and WOW, fell in love immediately. I'll smoke an English blend occasionally, but aromatics had been my favorites until I tried non-aro's like Half & Half and Prince Albert. Now SWR leads the pack as my favorite daily, all-day smoke !!!

A good fallback tobacco.
I have had Sir Walter Regular in my collection of tobaccos for a very long time and it functions as a good fallback smoke when the others become too much of what they are and I feel the need to go with something simple. It is the tobacco the my Grandfather and Father both used for the same reasons.

Sir Walter Raleigh Review
Wow! What a pleasant smoke. I had purchased a pouch of this last year about the same time and just dismissed it as an average smoke. I have taken to smoking big and burley by C and D lately, but I wanted a milder faster burning smoke for the work place and to smoke casually also. I have to say I'm impressed with SWR. Every since the 14 oz tin arrived in the mail I have been smoking it quite frequently. It has a great burly taste, and when sipped slowly, it has a chocolaty taste that is amazing. the best way I can explain it is a cross between Prince Albert and Carter Hall. It combines the best of both tobaccos. It definitely has the burly flavor with the slightness of sweetness. I love it! I find myself smoking more and more of it. I still like Big and Burley for a solid burley smoke, but SWR delivers the goods for a pleasant mild and tasty smoke to enjoy all day and on occasion when you just want a simple honest bowl of burley tobacco. I also have to add that P and C is the only place I have found to purchase it. There are other sites available on the internet, but I have found P and C to be superior in both service and tobacco quality. Keep up the good work guys!

One of the Best Non- Aromatics
I've only had a couple non-aromatics to compare this with and only tried in a cob, but to this casual smoker it is better than Carter Hall and Prince Albert.

Nice aroma ,cool flavor ,using as morning bowl
Excellent morning bowl,light and refreshing,lights up good,smokes well but not to the end of it,and i fine within as never smoke to the end.i would say 1/2 bowl still aromatic then it spoiling by hit .does not gets to hot,quiet cool and light smoke,and i like that flavor ,near to Carter Hall or Prince Albert or closer to mixture 79 probably as it cut almost in cubes,kind small cuts,dont have even pack bowl,just use gravitation,should try one if you in light aromatic's.
5 out of 5
Old fashion classy stuff
On rotation very much,almost cube cuts,always burns good,testy,and i would call it aromatic rather then regular...very close to mixture 79 -old fhashion and classy stuff,light smoke in hot florida..but aromatics would disapear before you finish it-keep sealed .

Just what I remember...
Recently bought a couple of pouches as I hadn't smoked SWR in many years. While it was never one of my main drugstore buys back in the 60's and 70's I did purchase it occasionally and remember it being a pleasant smoke but not one of my favorites. Well it didn't disappoint me this time around. It had the same crimp cut which clogged one of my pipes, the same pleasant room note, but was totally lacking in the taste department. Just what I remember. I much prefer Half & Half and Granger to this brand just like I did back in the day.

SWR regular
I had never tried Sir Walter Raleigh regular until now because it is not available in my town. I smoke the SWR Aromatic on a regular basis and really enjoy it. Now that I've tried the regular, I really like it too. It reminds me a little of Velvet although not quite as sweet. Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic and Velvet are my everyday tobaccos, but I will now keep a pouch of SWR regular around as well.

An underrated Classic
If you are a fan of Carter Hall and Prince Albert, then Sir Walter Raleigh Regular will seem a bit rough around the edges. But if you’re a fan of Half and Half, then SWR will smoke like electric velvet. Just aromatic enough to barely notice, what you get here is classic OTC burley based smoke with no apologies. Not my favorite, but I keep it around for fun.

basic
a nice pleasant smoke...not complex but straight foward...i have 102 blends in my collection and this one is hardly in the class of my best ones but in saying that, this smoke is always enjoyable and easy to smoke..should be in everyone's rotation

Sir walter knows how much smoke weighs
Little known fact, weigh your empty pipe, fill pipe with tobacco, weigh again. light up and smoke as much as you can or want. When you want to stop, weigh smoked pipe. clean out and weigh remaining tobacco chard subtract from starting weight subtract weight of pipe empty equals smoke weight. Do not use bathroom scales. bathroom vapors will mix with smoke for a inaccurate weight.

What Pipe Tobacco is Meant to Be
Good ol' fashioned codger burley! Slightly sweet with a hint of Anise, and good, nutty burleys round out the taste. A great work shop or yard work pipe tobacco. No muss, no fuss. Also has a wife approved room note! Go ahead and tack on a couple pouches with your next order.

Disenchanted
The essence is strong enough to hide what little nutty flavor might exist. The tobacco is coarse & full of stem/plugs. I just smoked 'Smoker Friendly-Sweet Natural' that leaves this in the dust from starting at the same OTC price.

This is a good burley otc tobacco. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It tasted like a good honest bowl of tobacco. However, it was just a tad sweet for my taste. I found Prince Albert to have a more pronounced burley taste without the slight sweet flavor. Tho
This is a good burley otc tobacco. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It tasted like a good honest bowl of tobacco. However, it was just a tad sweet for my taste. I found Prince Albert to have a more pronounced burley taste without the slight sweet flavor. Though, SWR is less sweet and more burley than Carter Hall.

Good, solid, anytime American Burley classic. Great for the first smoke of the day, and anytime there after. It's not MacB's Navy Flake, or Dunhill or any other high-end tobacco, but it doesn't pretend to be. Just a good American classic, and I keep it on-hand with the others.

One of the classics. A rich, nutty flavor with some nice hidden notes. A blend that you could smoke all day!

Customer Testimonials
I typically avoid OTC tobaccos, and thought I'd purchase a package of this just for kicks, as it was my grandfather's go-to pipe tobacco (the old codger). Boy was I in for a surprise! SWR non-aromatic was an absolute delight. Great taste, smooth, mild, but with a little bit of kick. Coming off of cigarettes, I'd have to say this is the perfect transition tobacco. No "weird" tobaccos (with all due respect to you pipe aficionados) that make you wonder if pipe smoking is really for you, nothing to set your tongue on fire, no perique to make you feel like you've just snorted a bottle of hot sauce, just a nice, smooth tobacco smoking experience. I admit it's a little one-note, but right now that's how I want it to be. I don't want to be ultra-challenged with exotic blends when all I'm trying to do is give up the cancer-sticks. I've tried every kind of pipe tobacco you can imagine - Latakia blends, Virginias, practically everything McClelland has to offer, etc. etc., and it was interesting, but I always went back to my pack of cigarettes. This was the first pipe tobacco I've tried where I can honestly say, "hey, this is as good as - if not better than - a cigarette. I think I can live with this!". I'll admit I'm not a connoisseur of pipe tobaccos, I just know what I like. And as a (hopefully soon to be ex-) cigarette smoker, SWR regular really hits the spot. Next time I'll be ordering the large tin.
Plain and simply good. Nice flavor and aroma. A solid burley smoke.
Didn't care for this tobacco when first received. Seemed too dry compared to my other Codger Burleys and I felt it took a back seat to CH, PA, and Velvet. But then I bought a new briar that happened to smoke quite wet with the afore-mentioned burleys. Before giving up on the pipe I tried SWR in it. Worked very well; in fact the two seemed made for each other. The combination gets better every time I smoke them. I now look forward to smoking the two together and have found SWR is a favorite in my cobs as well.
I obtained SWR in a "sampler kit" with three killer cobs,Half and Half and Velvet. Now I'm still new at this and went straight to Russ's aromatics, Frog Morton and other boutique brands at the beginning but had to try the otc brands and ordered this kit. I'm so glad I did and so glad that the higher end baccy didn't ruin me. Walter did put my nose off a bit at opening(like Frog on the Bayou does to some)and I thought at least I added some cool pipes to my collection but it's actually a good smoke as are the other pouches I got. A nutty semi sweet flavor that is gonna save this hillbilly some money. Now I'm still sane and will keep my Frog,Cult and Russ's blends in rotation but they will last longer now. Good straight forward smoke to enjoy. Thanks P&C and good smoking my friends.
An old favorite and the only otc blend I will smoke, burns cool with no bite and a nice nutty flavor. Not my every day smoke but I can get it at the drugstore down the street and it's reasonably priced there. If you haven't tried this tobacco you need to, if for no reason other than it being a classic American tobacco.
Been on a codger bender here lately. Sir Walter Raleigh is just stuff & puff DELIGHT! Can not recommend high enough !
A old favorite of mine. I guess it is my age as the older I get the more I enjoy these OTC blends. A good price here at P&C.
I think like a lot of the other commenters this is a brand I see at the drug store and decided to give it a shot. I loved it. Real nice easy smoke. It was nice as a stand alone, but I mixed some black burley and it just took off.
I agree with WK of copperas cove, TX. I used to smoke a lot of Prince Albert and the the new Sir Walter Raleigh came out and it is great. It offers a good burley taste with out the bite.
I think this tobacco is the best of all the otc blends out there, the smell in the pouch and room note are nutty burleys. I love the fact that I can just take my pipe and scoop the tobacco right into it. Its now my all day smoke.
I don't know why people don't like it. It has good flavor and burn time and it's a classic !!. For me I love the stuff I will continue to buy the stuff as long as its still on P&C.
I would have to say that this is one of the top drugstore tobaccos. If you were stuck somewhere without your favorites and had to go to a drugstore or a gas station store this would be your best choice and you'd probably finish the pouch unless you don't like the old time burley based tobacco. Here's what its got going for it: (1) a fairly dry tobacco with much less PG than the other drugstore blends (2) a really good nutty burley taste with no tongue bite (3) the cut is a little shorter so it packs really easily with no relights needed and (4) it smokes easily with lots of smoke and no gurgle in your pipe even if your smoking fast to get out of the cold. It's an old time classic that still holds up and better than a lot of way more expensive tobacco. I keep it in stock for regular use. Sometimes I add a little PS cube cut to it and it doesn't get much better.
I find this tobacco to be a little odd. It tastes pretty well on its own. However; if you use it to blend other tobaccos, it tends to leave a strange taste. I have used Carter Hall to blend, the same as I've done with this one, but CH has a much better taste for blending. My opinion is that whatever it is that they use to scent this tobacco, doesn't really blend well. You can actually taste the scent. Then again, that's just me. Maybe you will or have had better results.
My opinion of this blend has changed recently because I think my tastes have changed. When I started smoking a pipe about a year ago I didn't like this tobacco. But now I do! Kind of weird I know, but I like Burley blends more now. This one has a nice nutty tobacco flavor. It reminds me of Prince Albert and Carter Hall a little. You can't beat the price especially if you are on a budget.
Great aroma and wife approved
This is a straightforward Burley tobacco. Nothing fancy but is one of the few that you can just stick your pipe in the pouch and scoop up a bowl for smoking. This tobacco has been around 75 years for a good reason. It burns cool, provides a decent quality smoke at a very affordable price.
This is a good burley based tobacco. Its a dark burley with a little Virginia added for sweetness.It does have more strength than say Carter Hall or Prince Albert. It's actually a better quality blend. Nice if you like a stronger Kentucky/Tennessee burley with a light anise flavor. It's a very rich, flavorful tobacco ! Awesome in a cob !
I got a pouch of good old Sir Walter Raleigh to see what it was about, as I had seen my grandfather smoking this when I was a kid. I was quite pleasantly surprised. It was a nice, easygoing, nutty burley, one that you could smoke all day. I went ahead and ordered a couple more pouches, as you could do a lot worse than having a couple of pouches of Sir Walter in reserve. Straightforward and tasty.
Wow strong tabacco in every sence like it if it were in a light
