War Horse Bar

War Horse Bar is a plug tobacco made in the tradition of the long-missing Irish tobacco. Made of darker, earthier leaf, War Horse Bar has a singular top note added, and the tobacco is pressed and cut into plugs. The flavor and body are astoundingly stout, and is definitely meant for the experienced pipe enthusiast. If you love robust and bold pipe tobacco, War Horse Bar will become a staple for you.

Very enjoyable
A good alternate for War Horse Green. It’s not super different so I can’t put my finger on the exact difference but I like them both.

Riding the Warhorse!!!
Excellent!!! I'm only been smoking pipes for 6 months or so (over 50, never a cigarette smoker, and rarely smoked cigars). I've been "cutting my teeth"mostly on aromatics and OTC blends. Lately I've been dipping my toes into the non-aromatic, and English blends. When I first filled my bowl and lit up, I braced myself for the onslaught of War Horse Bar. What I found was a surprisingly smooth and mellow smoke with a good tobacco flavor. Definitely more nicotine then my usual blends, but nothing that made me ill, just a a little "buzzy". A great tobacco to smoke after a good steak dinner. Started the tin, and I already ordered 2 more.

One of my most have tobacco's!
The flavors from this kake like plug is superb. Easy smoking will very little bite. The room note is simply amazing. I do recommend crumbling up the amount you want to use and allowing to dry for a moment, before puffing.

Better than I thought
I wasn’t expecting much, but found I got More than I was expecting . This didn’t have such a licorice flavor as I thought it had. It turned out it had a deeper yet subtle licorice flavor; and not in your face flavor. Great for a beginner and pro at same time. I will buy again.

A suitable substitute for Ready Cut
War Horse Ready Cut is one of my favorite tobaccos of all time. This bar version doesn't have the smoothness as the ready cut and seems considerably stronger. The Ready Cut only gives me a little lump in my gut sometimes, if I smoke it on an empty stomach, but the BAR wants to knock my willy down in the dirt! If I'd tried Bar first, I might not have been as impressed, but I think it's a suitable alternative to Ready Cut, and maybe it'll smoothen up a bit with some age. (I tend to think loose tobacco ages faster than plugs, which might explain the difference.) It's not quite a plug -- more of a pressed kake, so you don't need a knife; you can just pinch off a piece and rub it between your fingers directly into your bowl, which makes this tin travel in your pocket well without making a mess of dottle outside the wings of the paper insert. If you liked the taste of this, but it knocked you down too much, try the Ready Cut, which is just a tiny step down in strength -- the momma bear of strong tobaccos.

First notes of smell were
First notes of smell were that of raw tobacco. It smokes pure and cool and burns long. Easily breaks apart without a knife. Several compliments from older women saying it smell's like what their dad or grandpa smoked. A definite must have in a smokers celler.

Heavy duty
This is a great tobacco it's strong full-flavored pairs well with a strong cup of coffee. This is in my regular rotation now and by far my favorite. This is one of the few tobacco's that I can actually taste the nuttiness in the flavors in it not sure what all the flavors are but they taste good to me.

Great tobacco even for a newbie.
As a very new pipe smoker I was a little hesitant to try War Horse Bar. When I first opened the tin I knew that smell ,like it was something from the past but I still can not place it. When smoking it is indeed a bit stronger than what I was used to but not overbearing. It has a almost moss like taste and smell,it lights easy and stays lit. My girlfriend loves the room note

A Solid Horse to Bet On
Pipes and Cigars has a winner here. The tobacco is fantastic; it's easy to prepare, pack, light, and smoke. It tastes great. The fire-cured Kentucky has a unique and delicious flavor, like it was cured by burning cedar or some other wood not normally used to fire-cure tobacco (yet, it does not taste like latakia). The aromatic topping is very mild and complements the Kentucky perfectly. The red Virginia component is noticeable, and very pleasant. When you pack your pipe, just rip small chunks off the plug and pack them into the bowl more or less intact. The moisture content is perfect fresh out of the tin for smoking the tobacco in this manner. If you rub this stuff out, it burns too quickly and you won't get much flavor. I highly recommend that you try this tobacco—even if you have tried Warhorse Green and hated it (as I have).

Two thumbs up!
Not sure on the blend or the "topping", but i really like this tobacco. Really stiff plug to cut but it crumbles easily and packs well. Burns well and left very little if any moisture. I think this would be a fantastic crossover blend between aros and englishes. Ordering more come payday.

Great smoke
Good flavor, tin note and room note. Only complaint is its is more of a kake than plug. It has a tendency to crumble up a little small and sometimes block the air flow. Other than that it's great!

Very Pleasant and Relaxing
This and War Horse Green are my first plug tobaccos. I was a little nervous about trying something other than a Cavendish or Latakia. I'm glad I did!
