Tobacco Reviews is the place on the internet to learn about and share your impressions of the panoply of pipe tobaccos in the world today.
From long-gone legends of pipe smoking to the newest cutting-edge blends, from the most obscure gems from boutique blenders to the most widely smoked tobaccos today, they are all here.
Thousands of your fellow smokers have written tens of thousands of reviews of all of these tobaccos, sharing their wisdom, wit and honest opinions. You are cordially invited to join the discussion and add your thoughts and reflections to our ever-increasing stock of collective knowledge on pipe tobacco.
Take a look around the database, see what others have written about your favorite pipe tobaccos, discover some new things to try out, and when you are ready, join us and let us know what you think of the tobaccos you have smoked.
Pipe smoking is a gentle hobby, and we strive to treat each other, and our differing opinions of pipe tobaccos with the respect and restraint due to the ladies and gentlemen that we are, or hope to be. Please help us to maintain this atmosphere by refraining from disparaging the tastes, writing styles or opinions of your fellow users. It is generally best to confine your reviews only to the tobacco in question and not to respond to what others have written previously. While lively arguments about the merits of certain pipe tobaccos can be entertaining to all, this is not the place for them.

When submitting new tobacco blends to the database, please do not use the Blend Notes section for anything other than historical or geographical information about a tobacco. Particularly, do not attempt to use the Blend Notes to talk about your tobacco shop or local blender. Doing so will get your request deleted summarily. Examples of [...]
- Reviews Now Paginated (March 10, 2010 at 05:30 PM)
Wow! You folks sure do write a lot of reviews. That’s awesome. However, showing the sheer number of reviews for some blends is putting a serious strain on the servers and causing a bunch of timeout errors. In the hopes of alleviating the problems I have, reluctantly, re-enabled the paged view of reviews. I know [...]

Do what you can to help stop HR 4439, the so-called Tobacco Tax Parity Act of 2010, which will raise the Federal Excise Tax on pipe tobacco 775%, from $2.8311 to $24.78. This bill, introduced by Rep.
